Remember when Labour spent £1/2Bn on Swine flu vaccines that were worthless, one of the big benefactors of that was GlaxoSmithKline ... now who amongst the chief advisers for C.19 is directly employed connected to them, oh yeah, that would be Mr Vallance!
3.4% vaccine protection for new strains https://www.nhs.uk/news/medical-practic ... e-of-time/
That’s flu vaccine. AIUI , flu virus changes a lot, this coronavirus doesn’t.
From Evening Standard (among others)
The genetic code of Covid-19 has been relatively slow to mutate during its global spread so a future vaccine could remain effective over a long period, research has suggested.
Two independent studies by teams of infectious diseases scientists helping Italy's fight against coronavirus have reported they found the fast-proliferating pathogen to be reasonably stable.
The findings will add to a better understanding of the virus and how it spreads - and raise hopes that a future vaccine could have a higher rate of effectiveness against the strain.
The studies were carried out by Lazzaro Spallanzani National Institute for Infectious Diseases in Rome and the forensic division of the department of biomedical sciences and public health at Ancona University Hospital.[/quote]
