Covid-19 vaccine findings 'even better than we expected'

Professor Danny Altmann from Imperial College London has said the positive studies showing a 90% effective Covid-19 vaccine is "terribly good news...even better than we expected". Pharmaceutical firm Pfizer announced that interim findings from its Covid-19 vaccine study showed the jab to be more than 90% effective in preventing the disease. Professor Altmann spoke with caution over the vaccine's findings, however, imploring people to "not think of this as a rapid fix", adding "we're still going to be facing a hard time for much of 2021". The Professor of Immunology did say that the new findings "means there is light at the end of the tunnel" to this global pandemic.
