Fresh update on "moderna" discussed on BBC Newsday
"What the government has on set that it will get Moderna vaccines by the end of this month, and that the Taiwan the time one's own version of the vaccine will be available in July. But many experts question that timeline. They say the Taiwanese vaccine has not gone to the Three stages of clinical trials. They also say that even if Taiwan gets the Moderna vaccine by the end of this month, it won't be enough to fascinate the large portion of the population. And so they have criticized the government for actually being too slow and also putting politics perhaps ahead of Science by rejecting the Chinese vaccine. Yeah, that is a discussion that we're seeing in many parts of the world, isn't it? Cindy?.
Fresh update on "moderna" discussed on The Voice Of Health
"That traitor we're going to do are coded 19 update and we are five months into the cove it vaccine roll out five minutes already. How are the vaccine's working Well, of course what you're looking for on any type of vaccine. According to the CDC, and everybody who's involved in it is that the vaccines are safe and effective. And we're looking at the effectiveness of it. You know, in the At the beginning, Hmm. And they have a tremendous amount of data coming out of the United Kingdom and Israel. There, the two countries who are the farthest along On their vaccination for the population, and they're keeping very good data. And the effectiveness is really hard to refute. They're retesting. Also seem to be effective. There's still some question about the new one in India and with the Brazilian But for the most part, the effectiveness of the vaccine is impossible to refute. Which is actually quite amazing that the science that was behind that on getting that out and getting it as quickly as they did is really almost a scientific miracle. So Kudos on that. So the effectiveness is right there where it should be. So the next sense are effective. But are they safe? Uh, that's that's the new question. The jury's kind of out on that right now. So that's that's actually the big question, because not only do you need to have effectiveness, but also a safety component on that, and right now we are getting some Interesting red flags. Actually, Hmm. Okay on the safety on the safety portion, Okay. And now if people get the vaccine They could get the cove. It's still yes, they are looking at that, as right now they're getting the data. They are finding people still getting the cove it and the vaccine is to take down hospitalizations and deaths. That's the big thing that is designed to do s so that's why they're still saying that people would still need to mask and keep social distance. Even though they have the vaccine. So what is bears? We've talked about it before And then the European version of that. Yeah, the U D R A. Uh, yeah, those air the reporting systems, and basically, that's where we're getting. That's where that you determined on the safety abortion of it, both the European reporting and on the American side, they were getting pretty alarming numbers. Now there's there's caveats to that because they're saying that anybody could report it. But we're talking about if you take all the vaccines, vaccinations that have been done. Since they've been recording it in the last 30 years. At this point, it doesn't equal the number of problems that have shown up on this vaccination yet. So combination of all vaccines before. This is kind of eclipsing that report, and they're actually saying that it's according to the center disease control, the problems are actually under reported. You know, we're actually seeing quite a bit of that, where it's not really being followed that the report should be put in. There's I think we went through the numbers one of their times before on those and those gonna actually be looked up and seeing what's going on with that. But, yeah, it's very, very high numbers on deaths, different types of problems, hospitalizations. Intergalactic reactions to the new vaccinations. Are you saying the reporting to bears and the European You could call it. You dress you D array. That's actually what they say. They say That's the European reporting system. These are the reporting systems if you have some type of reaction to the vaccine. Have outnumbered them past. Oh, vaccines for the last 30 years. Wow, if you add up everything That's in the last five months last five months, Okay, so those are numbers that anybody can look up and see. So it's not my opinion. You know, nobody cares what my opinion is. But according to the reporting, now they do put caveats in there. They sit there and say, Well, anybody can report but you know people were reporting on vaccines before. You know, I'm just doing a comparison of what was put out there. And one of the big things is that they're saying is, well, the risk of the cove. It is much higher than the vaccines, but You know, the whole thing is that you have to look at it is who's at risk. Now, I was still so sit there and say that if you're in the category of rest, let's say you're 65 or older. Hey, if you have certain types of diseases going on korma abilities, comb our abilities that go along with that cardiovascular disease, kidney problems. Time diabetes. Definitely, I would say that getting the vaccine Is certainly something that you should do because the risk of the vaccine are much less than the disease process itself. But you're talking about a whole group of people who are pretty much not at risk it all You know you're talking about young people, people pretty much 45 younger. Really don't have a risk, but they do have a risk that with the vaccination, so if you require them to get that, I don't know if that's good medicine or not, you know, Because there you always look at risk versus benefit. In any type of situation. Absolutely the vaccine. The benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risk without any doubt. For about 14% of the population. You know, there's just no doubt about that. 14%. Yeah, but for we go back to the whole thing that 26% of the people Out there are completely were completely immune to the infection in the first place. 40% didn't even know that they had it, and that's usually the younger people. You know, so they would catch it and have no idea that they even have you have another 20% who have mild to moderate symptoms as bait, basically 14% of the population where the ones who are at risk With that, and at a high, very high risk. For this infection. But for those who are in those categories and don't have a high risk factor is that something that we should require them to do? Where they could be at risk for the vaccinations because you're looking at some very particular types of things that seem to be occurring, Hmm. So what kind of problems they're showing up with the vaccines? Well, mainly, it's the blood clotting. And that has a lot to do the blood clots people who are younger. Oftentimes women are much more likely, especially during the child bearing years to actually develop problems that are associated with that. So you're talking about clotting? You're talking about the cardiovascular types of problems. They're associating with this vaccination. That's one of the things that they have suspended Johnson and Johnson and Astra Zeneca because they have a higher rate than the fires in the Moderna with the cardiovascular types of incidents, So so are these concerns about safety Valid?.

Your body produces probably billions of messenger. Made that goes to the dna and from did the enemy they could use protein and protein. This is what makes your body works. And so what madonna does is we sympathize. This messenger aurigny and send instructions to the cell to produce those proteins to prevent or cure diseases so simple. This is what we do and this can be declined in many many settings a to either prevent ocular diseases so the most the most known one is the vaccine. Because what we do was the vaccine is with produce the protein that exist on the surface of the virus and let your immune system respond to this to those protein and build the date munity against those proteins and by building this unity when the virus come the virus has exactly the same signature because those are protein from the surface of the virus and f. Our immune system is ready to replicate against the buyers. So this is the setting of vaccines but we do as well work on on quality. We were on rare disease. We walk on autoimmune so we have twenty plus programs in at different stages in development at that stage. If i take another example and let's say grab diseases. Diseases they usually. You're missing a either a protein. An enzyme or something is missing in yaw dna. So what we do is sympathize.

"An explosive story. In the new york times that talked about a an attorney within the department of justice geoffrey clarke who had been the head of the justice department's environmental division and it it woven clark working with president trump tried to overturn the will of the people specifically in georgia georgia. There were tens of thousands of illegal votes cast and counted. You know that this was happening in the closing days of the trump administration diesel have confidence in bill. Barr asked me that in a number of weeks from now. Bill barr had left as attorney. General and jeffrey rosen stepped. In as the acting attorney general we have targeted. On active duty involving opioids at every level of the supply chains. Jeffrey rosen was never thought to necessarily be a trump loyalist but but a steadfast attorney at the justice department. Who had brought jeffrey clark along. And mentored him both the private sector and within the justice department. Good morning i'm jeff clark the head of the civil division and i. I wanted to start out by thanking the deputy attorney general for his leadership and according to the new york times account. Jeffrey clark wanted to oust his mentor. After rosen refused entreaties to try and get the justice department to step in and stop georgia from certifying the election. Start with that bombshell recording of a phone call revealing president trump pressuring an election official in georgia to turn his defeat to joe biden. We believe what we do. Have an active election. Rosen said repeatedly during internal discussions that the department had found no evidence that anything went wrong in georgia or in any other state where the president had publicly questioned the election results and he thought that was the end of it. But it turns out that. Jeffrey clark went behind his back and went to the white house to discuss the idea with president trump of of trying to insert the justice department. If only the president would fire rosen and install him as the acting attorney general and i'm thinking like in that moment there's a new acting attorney general of the united states that president trump is putting essentially to specifically say. No we are going to overturn. What happened in georgia. I got to imagine that that only raises the stakes for everyone who's been around the capital for everyone who's thinking about protests and even violence like that all would have inflamed tensions even more from the from the right like i got to imagine you're entering pure crisis territory if that ended up happening. This was a step that bill barr. Who was long thought to be one of donald. Trump's most loyal associates never would take i read it about bill barr that he's my personal attorney that he'll do anything for me and i said you know it really is genius because what they do is that and it makes it really impossible for them to ever give you a victory. And so now for a new acting attorney general. The stakes were incredibly. High and jeffrey rosen. Got together with other senior leaders of the justice department and they effectively made a pact. That if rosen. Was fired and jeffrey clark. Installed as the new acting attorney general they were all going to resign en masse and they told the president this and ultimately the president backed off fearing that a mass resignation if the justice department would draw comparisons to the nixon era and ultimately Overshadow any attempt. He he wanted to make to challenge the results in georgia. Since essentially the the small group of people in the doj. The kept us from mushrooming even larger. I should point out. Clark denies this account. He said he did not devise a plan. To oust jeff rosen. He says he did not basis arguments online misinformation. He also not explain what he did. Say the president. He cited privileged here erin. In the meantime you're still seeing conspiracy theories baseless conspiracy. Theories batted around some of them involving. You know the company that created these voter machines for georgia. That company is kind of instructing people on how to deal with baseless claims. You can always sue if they're fabrications. There is a new lawsuit by dominion the big voting machine. Company against rudy giuliani president. Trump's personal attorney and dominion has just headed up to here with with giuliani with sydney powell. In this whole other cast of characters that have been out there spinning these conspiracy theories that somehow dominion tipped the election in favor of joe biden. Because they're a venezuelan front with ties to go chavez. One of the experts that has examined these crooked dominion machines has absolutely. What he believes is conclusive proof that in the last ten percent. Fifteen percent of the vote counted. The votes would deliberately changed dominion filed a one point. Three billion dollar defamation suit you heard that right. They're seeking more than a billion dollars in damages from from rudy. Giuliani in the lawsuit. Said the juliani knows there's no actual evidence and yet he's spinning these theories on radio on television online program that machine from the outside to accomplish that and they've been doing it for years to favor. The democrats crucially though bread not in court where lying has consequences and dominion is is welcoming. The the idea that this could be aired in open court. We're looking at everybody. What role they played in either making statements themselves about dominion or perpetuating this the false statements that were made. They want to make sure they clear their name because they say executives have been harassed and threatened and the company's reputation needlessly questioned rudy. giuliani said. he's excited about this because he says it will finally give him a chance to prove his allegations but this is a fight dominion wants and wants out in the open because the company said they think. It'll prove giuliani aligarh. And really as these companies and people been facing these lawsuits from groups like dominion the being told by lawyers to put up or shut up like show us any evidence that would sustain sheet. Anything you're saying is true here right after that. Several conservative media companies started issuing these corrective statements and newsmax would like to clarify its news coverage. Note that it has not reported as true certain claims made about these companies. Then you've also got people like sydney powell saying she is retracting. Nothing just like giuliani facing billion dollar lawsuit erin katersky. Thanks so much. Thank you brad emma. Last thing at this point in the biden presidency. They're going to be big policy items crossed off the to do list every single day in fact last night the senate confirmed janet yellen as the first woman to lead the treasury department in its history. The ban on transgender servicemembers is gone but in the middle of the white house briefing yesterday press secretary. Jen psaki announced another piece of guidance. The treasury department is taking steps to resume efforts to put. Harriet tubman on the front of the new twenty dollar notes. That's right harriet tubman. Who who aerobically helped people escape. Slavery is supposed to replace andrew jackson on the twenty dollar bill which might make you. Oh yeah wait. I forgot that was supposed to happen. Well there are more of these as you. New air force one and doing that for other presidents from me for years. We don't air force one is supposed to get a big remodel soon. Former president trump for the color scheme to be changed to red white and blue. Is that going to happen. Sake says I can confirm for you. Hear the president has not spent a moment thinking about the color scheme of air force one or anything in the house or any article. Anything also remember the policy. From the obama years were americans would just be able to go to cuba whenever they wanted. President obama touching down air force. One here in havana. An image unimaginable not long ago. We'll biden is now going to be asked. That's back on the table. Same with an old obama order that would make large companies. Disclose how much they're paying then versus women long with breaking salaries down by race. And we know it's one thing to promise it's another thing to deliver.

"Fda has authorized moderna coronavirus vaccine that comes after the independent vaccines and related biological products. Advisory committee voted twenty. Two nothing with one abstention to recommend the fda did so dr steven paragon a committee member and infectious disease and vaccine expert at the fred hutchinson. Cancer research center said quote. There's no doubt in my mind. It looks like the benefits outweigh the risks. From what i've seen on quote the pfizer vaccine continues to ship but states are increasingly complaining of fewer doses than expected. Michigan governor gretchen whitmer and colorado governor jared. Police were disappointed on friday. I still cannot get straight answer out of the trump administration about why michigan like many other states is receiving a fraction of the vaccines that we were slated to receive. There are millions of pfizer. Vaccines many right here. In portage michigan that are waiting to be shipped and there is either corruption or an aptitude at is keeping us from saving lives and protecting people. Bad news is the numbers for that we're going to get from visor are lower next week. Not just for us for every state the what we had been told before and i do call upon the federal government. I saw visors for nouncement that they had doses waited in the warehouse and they just needed to be told where to send them We say send them to colorado but we encourage the federal government to get those distributed out. They're not doing any good in a fight. Your warehouse vice president. Mike pence and second lady karen pants received the pfizer vaccine publicly on friday the echoed earlier remarks calling it a miracle under operation warp speed. We are poised to have vaccine for twenty million americans before the end of december it is truly a medical miracle. Meanwhile a dark winter for covid related deaths and the economy continues the. Us has regularly seeing three thousand deaths due to the virus a day and amid new shutdown orders to try and curb the spread. The restaurant business in particular faces a problem with cold weather and indoor dining restrictions restaurants sales were about sixty five billion dollars in the months before the pandemic but they plummeted to thirty billion in april sales did rebound to fifty five point seven billion dollars in september but have been declining ever since lawmakers avoided a government shutdown on friday by passing another short term funding bill to buy a few more days house. Democrats passed legislation friday afternoon to fund the government for two more days by three twenty two sixty vote sending the bill to the senate which then passed it unanimously.

"We are on track to get the second coronavirus vaccine approved by the end of the week on tuesday. The fda confirmed that modernist to dose vaccine is safe and effective in the first week of its roll out about six million doses will be shipped out. The government also bought another one hundred million doses from madonna for a total of two hundred million at a cost of three point. Two billion dollars. Sarah overall health care reporter at politico joins us for more good vaccine news. Thanks for joining us sarah. Well happy to be here. It seems we're on the same track as we were last week with pfizer vaccine. The fda has cleared the path for the second coronavirus vaccine to be approved. This is the one from dirna. It's very similar to the pfizer. Vaccine the fda panel will go through it make recommendations and hopefully over the weekend and early next week will already be seeing shots administered of the modern vaccine. So sarah tell us a little bit about what. The fda panel has said about this vaccine. They said it's safe and effective. This is basically for last week. So the five vaccine was authorized by fda last week on very similar data which is why we are pretty confident about the trajectory for this modano. One we expect that after a expert advisory panel meets on thursday. The fda could be authorizing as soon as friday morning as it did with pfizer. And then we will have a cd panel meeting over the weekend talk about recommendations for who this goes to i love because they are really similar vaccines they have a very similar technology called messenger. They also have almost identical effectiveness rate. We can expect some of those same. Things are important distinctions for them down. I want especially with certain populations that they have different data for for instance. It shows that it's more effective than younger people than it is and people over the age of sixty five. That could be a really important distinction as we've always doses out and find out that maybe the pfizer one is more ideal for nursing homes and the modano one might be more ideal for people who work in high exposure areas but aren't necessarily as old as somebody who's anymore foldable situation. So these are the things we're gonna find out over the next few days but you're right we could as of next week have millions more doses to be shipping out across the country the initial round of doses are obviously limited. How many doses are we going to be able to see. Go out in the first push. So they're actually willie more of the dancers in the first person there were the size are ones government. Officials have said that nearly six million will be put out in more than three thousand sites next week if we do have this authorized which were expected to that's in comparison to two point nine million doses from tyzzer that are going out as we speak and two point nine million from visor that have been held back for a second dose so between the two of them each has promised twenty million doses a piece this month which is forty million total but they all are veterans. You can think of this as twenty million very high need people getting doses this month. There was some criticism with the government's action on the pfizer vaccine for not buying that extension or extra doses. But on this case with the modern vaccine the us did exercise their right to buy one hundred million additional doses of moderna vaccine. Tell us a little bit about that. And then the costs associated with it because this one is a little more closely tied to operation warp speed. The government gave him a during a more money to develop this whole thing exactly and so they had options with both of those pharmaceutical companies to buy one hundred million doses originally but the option to buy hundreds of millions more with each of them to chris. Them lately has been They did not exercise that option when they could have with visor so they had an option to buy up to five hundred million doses. Some them and according to her they offer that to be got multiple times in the government. Didn't take them up on that and so they moved on. They have signed multiple different agreements with other countries in the world. I mean think about the entire world wants these highly effective vaccine so kind of to them that loss or to shore up our supplies here in the united states. The united states announced late last week that they would die a hundred million more of the moderna vaccine and not brings its total cost montana to three point. Two billion dollars which is eye-popping. But when you think about how much is company which has never mass produced a vaccine product ever before moderna. This is going to be there. I authorized product. This is a huge undertaking. That's why there's so much money going towards this. So you can think about this as the us trying to shore up its supplies in this arena but it also has multiple other payments out there with six manufacturers total to get if everything goes right. Nine hundred billion doses. That might seem like a lot like way too much for the us but we don't know how many of those are going to work we even just last week. That a vaccine from synovium glaxosmithkline is going to be delayed until the end of two thousand twenty one because they didn't get really good results. So this is why the us government betting so big and the moderna vaccine for its part is easier to ship and store than the pfizer. One is so you know. Maybe this vaccine will make it into rural areas a little more easily. So there's benefits you know in pros and cons to each one kind of on their self. At least a good thing that they bought a bunch of those extra orders and last thing. I wanted to ask. Real quick was just about how the moderna vaccine protects. There's been things it can Use severe effects of corona virus. They're hoping obviously that it'll reduce transmission rates but that's kind of what the focus was of their study as well and just how effective this would be so that was something he land in the food and drug administration's briefing documents tuesday morning with that. Not only is this. Affective broadly whether the suggestion that after the first dose in my even have curbed infections. And you might think that's pretty obvious. That's what vaccine you supposed to do. But we don't actually know yet. How effective vaccine would be at preventing transmission which is kind of the ultimate goal. We don't want people to have to get sick in the first place. This indicates that the magenta vaccine might be able to do that. And then like you said with severe cova illness. There are really promising results. From the moderna vaccine. There were thirty severe illnesses and you perceive a arm and none in the vaccine arm. That's great news so we actually have between us and visor to really promising candidates. I out of the gate. We kind of expect for better to be honest to now. It's you know it's the challenge of getting this out to people getting it to the people who need it most right away and meeting the demand that we know we're going to have in the united states and also in the world sarah overall health care reporter at politico.

"More great vaccine is this week as moderna has said that their vaccine candidate appears to be ninety. Four point five percent effective against covid nineteen. The other good news is that this one can be stored at standard refrigerator temperatures for a month before being used which will make it easier to ship and store karen weintraub health reporter at usa. Today joins us for more. Thanks for joining us. Karen much having some more really good news on the vaccine front last week we heard from this week. We're hearing from dern they're out of cambridge massachusetts and their vaccine candidate they're saying is ninety four point five percent effective against covid nineteen really great news so karen help us run down what we're learning about the moderna vaccine now right. So they're both based on the same technology actually so they're very similar vaccines madonna can be given at a doesn't have to be kept quite as frozen so maybe a little more practical to give especially in rural places but essentially they're very similar vaccines and they're both showing incredible effectiveness. Now these two vaccines as you mentioned. They're both using m. r. n. a. Something that we've never approved before in vaccine. This is pretty new technology and this would be the first thing if approved first pair of vaccines that are using this type of technology. How does that work exactly. So it basically uses the body's own system we make our in as as all the time this trains our body to make a protein that is found on the surface of the virus that causes covid and once our body is used to seize this virus. It's trained to see this protein. It attacks it and response and the good thing you know what happens. Now is a couple of rounds of good news and then right away. We start getting very optimistic about the future. So we have to vaccines. That are coming up. Shaping up really good in. This gives everybody a lot of hope for other ones because we're going to need multiple vaccine candidates to be able to get this across the country across the world. Yes there's no question that we need as many as we can get and assume that several people today who say that. The good news from pfizer. And the durham bodes well for the other vaccines. They're all targeting. The same protein on the surface of the of the virus and so the fact that one and two working suggests that others will as well. Let's talk a little bit more about the effectiveness so pfizer had about forty four thousand people enrolled in their clinical trial and moderna. They had about thirty thousand people and this is also a two-shot protocol. What are we learning. About how many people came down with the virus going through the shots. The way these trials up is they evacuated bunch of people and then wait until they get sick unfortunately because we have so much virus circulating in the us right now. It hasn't taken that long to get a lot of people sick. In both cases. I think five hundred ninety four people who fell ill and madonna had ninety five out of maderna's ninety five five of them had been in a vaccine arm of the trial while the rest had gotten a placebo. So ninety out of ninety five. Get a placebo. Get it and then got the placebo. It only five in the vaccine arm get it. You can statistically conclude at least at this point that it's ninety almost ninety five percent effective. They will look again. This was an interim analysis the final analysis communist at about one hundred sixty infections for both and at that point swimming. These numbers hold. They can be sure that it's ninety more than ninety percent sure that those numbers are real. This vaccine more so than pfizer was involved with operation warp speed. I mean this is being done in conjunction with the us government. Tell us a little bit about that relationship right. The government has been working for years with madonna to develop this platform. This means of of making vaccines quickly for exactly this purpose. Because we don't know. God forbid what's coming next out of the woods somewhere you know we. We tend to be viruses. Tend to come from animals and we can't predict what's coming next so the idea was to create a vaccine that could be deployed quickly in a circumstance. Like this and they still have a few more hoops to go through are going to file for the emergency use authorization. Obviously but there's hurdles with regards to production and a couple of other things as well so They're like visor in particular is likely to go through those very quickly. They have to pass manufacturing to prove that they can manufacture this vaccine safely and its scale five or has said they will have that done by this week. They're also waiting for safety data which is not expected to be a problem but had to wait until two months until half the in the trial at least had got had gone two months after their second infection. If you're gonna have a bad reaction to a vaccine that's very likely to come within the first six weeks of getting the vaccine so the federal government asked him to wait eight weeks to make sure that there weren't problems mysterious problems cropping up at this point. They haven't seen anything but these do have some consequences. You're gonna probably feel lousy for a day or two after getting them muscle pain. You know little fever tired like you have the flu for a day or two so they are not without some side effects but it's a lot better than ending up at a hospital and finally tell us a little bit about the storage of this because you mentioned that you know when we were talking about the pfizer. It has to be sold a really really cold temperatures. This can be stored at more standard refrigerator. Temperatures for up to a month so it could last longer shipping might be a little easier with this and then how many doses are we looking at to be available right away right so both of these. He said require to shots in my arm. It'd be protected. The pfizer vaccine is given three weeks apart. The maderno vaccine is given four weeks apart. And yes the pfizer vaccines to be so cold. I think a colleague discovered that rubber shatters at the temperature of dry ice. Which is the temperature. This has to be kept at in terms of distribution pfizer. Says that they can have fifty million doses by the end of this calendar year. Madeiran estimates about twenty million both expect hundreds of millions of doses available next year. We'll see what happens good news. We're honor way looking forward to that authorization and then we can start getting it out to the country.

We really appreciate your time today. Thank you very much. Indeed for sharing with us step sell the madonna that was stefan bond. Sell the ceo of moderna. Speaking with bloomberg's guy. Johnson and alex steel talking about the study. That just came out about their vaccine again. Ninety four point five percent efficacy. Very high number kind of in the ballpark with what we saw from pfizer. Last weeks we got to possible vaccines coming to markets. That's certainly very positives. If you think about this pandemic right now let's get some more details on what this moderna vaccine might look like. We can do that with boomer. Intelligence senior pharmaceutical pharmaceutical analyst. That would be sam. Zell joins us from france. Sam thanks for joining us here boy. This number ninety four point five percent jumps out at you just like the pfizer. Ninety percent number did as well. How do you compare and contrast these two potential vaccines. Yeah hi paul. So i think on the efficacy front we should currently issue. There are similarly effective. Because these are you know nine point. Seven percent versus ninety four point five percent on very few cases can go either way as the case the crew so i i would call the vaccines equivalent in terms of efficacy at least on the early data but then you have all the various other levels so down as done something that finds it did not have given us a bit more detail i. They gave us the statistical power which is great then. They told us about the severe cases. Non indoctrinated group that's fantastic to see One hundred percent protection but be really dealing with eleven cases. And then you've got the elderly. The stephen baltzell did not go into the detail. But if you as hugh that all the cases on the vaccine arm our older people which is very unlikely. Didn't you still have at least fifty percent effective vaccine for all the people. And i'm convinced that it would be better than that and they did have slightly better data elderly than others did. But that's early phase one to solve everything. Looks pretty good for this vaccine and also pfizer's based data that we have today some so the emirate technology transforms the body's own cells into vaccine making factories. Apparently does that mean that..

"Big up in a lot of stocks today while others took it on the chin because of the announcement of a second vaccine that's been found to be extremely effective for tackling corona virus. This when from dirna uses a whole different process of developing a vaccine has been found to be incredibly reliable by they're telling ninety four percent effective. The one we just heard about recently from pfizer was more than ninety percent effective. Don't remember a specific number beyond that. But what these vaccines mean is that if they are widely enough to topped it by americans and people overseas that corona virus will fade into i a nuisance and then fade into oblivion and this is enormously positive news for our lives and our health and incredibly great for the economy is moving forward to have this kind of very very positive information coming about us. Being able to tackle corona virus. The irony of it is that stocks. That are what are called. Stay at homes. They didn't like this. I mean investors in those stocks. Things that make your couch potatoes watching streaming <hes>. Various activities like working out on home gym equipment instead of going to a fitness center. Anything that was about us. Nesting the stock market is like. Yeah well that was fun while that lasted but stocks that involve people getting out and feeling comfortable to do things again. That people have been reluctant to do or have done a lot. Less of those stocks have performed very well and this is in the midst of us. Having the worst corona virus outbreak in the united states since corona virus came on the scene the number of people getting covert positive tests is extremely high. The death rate is climbing <hes>. Day by day and the number of people who are infected has gone up. The one piece of good news is that the exhausted medical personnel treating people for corona virus. No much better how to treat people. Now who do come down with it. And so the one ray of hope. Is that the number of people that will die from this. Enormous outbreak is significantly less as a ratio then died back in the spring but we do have a really rough ride straight in front of us followed by what will be continual improving picture in twenty one as the number of vaccines produced increases the numbers distributed and taken <hes> increases. It will allow us to destroy. The effect corona virus has had on us healthwise and as an economy one footnote. You may not be aware of. There's one big advantage for distribution of moderna vaccine versus the other and that is that it doesn't require extremely special handling in terms of temperature control that's required for the year early good news about a vaccine that seems to be very successful so this is good stuff moving forward. It's just we got a tough immediate picture in front of us both economically and for health.

"Com optimism in the market today though a little more temper than when the pfizer vaccine us came out. I was able to spent just extraordinary hair. So on the back of the pfizer news. It just gives people some hope that there's some vaccines in two thousand twenty one. Exactly what we're speaking of course. Is this new moderna. News arriving as the us surpasses eleven million corona virus cases. We're going to be speaking with some result in a little bit to give us the context on exactly what this darn vaccine is. But i we actually have the man responsible for the moderna vaccine. He is the chief. Executive officer of modernist found that bonzo and he is joining our television colleagues. Steel and guy johnson celeste. How's it over to alex. So now we welcome our tv viewers and radio listeners. to stefan cel moderna ceo stefan. It's been a big morning. Congratulations obviously all very excited. At any new prospect of a vaccine the question though that it seems like people have is. Why is europe vaccine require less cold storage than pfizer key to distribution. Good morning and thank you for me. I think he goes back to perform. We have been working on. Emanate vaccines for more than five years. This is the ten vaccine. That's we'll be running a clinical trial on be over vaccine that you mentioned. It's the first time that they are doing a new infectious disease vaccine so over years we've invested heavily in science in process development that allows us now to mexican bell storage condition than what we used to have. You know five years ago stefan. This is really important because it's going to have a huge impact on distribution. How much of an effect will that stability at a higher temperature have in everybody's ability to be able to get hold of this axiom. I think it's a huge impact. We have a vaccine stalled at minus twenty between the factory and the big distribution centers and those able to handle the type of product because already product approved by the emea in europe immature uk or the us at minus twenty cents use. But what is very important with. Today's news is we can now faulk two days. Have a vaccine stalled in regular fridge at two two eight celsius lucky to insulin and as you know every pharmacy doctor's fees ospital has that capability. So we think it's a very important game changer. The p. store to keep in mind all vaccine does not require dilution the vaccine that you mentioned requires deletion at the site. So you take the vaccine out in need to. It's an extra step what we have to do to get the world back to normal is a massive vaccination campaign Never only happened before and so every time we wouldn't be wasting doing. These type of things fall of a product is going to be an issue so we think about between the fridge condition storage and the fact that we do not any solution onsides. That'd be a big advantage for nazis and up dolls to be able to provide those vaccine quickly to population. We once it a good distinction. Have you had conversations with the current administration or the incoming administration about kind of distribution. How to mobilize yes.
