Evidence that the coronavirus vaccine can indeed significantly reduce the number of people infected with ‘serious illness such as hospitalization’ is found in a survey conducted in Scotland, UK.
A study conducted by the Department of Public Health in Scotland found that four weeks after the first dose of vaccine, coronavirus infection had reduced the ‘significant number’ of hospitalizations.
Among those who received the Pfizer-Bioentech vaccine, the incidence of coronavirus infection was reduced by 75 percent, and among the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine by 94 percent.
Professor Aziz Sheikh, the lead researcher on the survey, said: “Both vaccines are working well” and it is like being optimistic about the future.
A survey conducted in Scotland for the first time found evidence of the impact of the coronavirus vaccination program on a population in the real world.
Among those over the age of 60, the number of hospital admissions has dropped by 61 percent.
‘Both vaccines are working well’
As of 15 February, 1.14 million people in Scotland have been vaccinated against covid.
Compared to how many of these vaccinated people were hospitalized with covidia, how many of those who were not vaccinated were hospitalized.
In all, only 56 of those who have been vaccinated for four weeks have been hospitalized with covid.
Of the other group, 6,000 people who were not vaccinated were hospitalized with covid infection.
Professor Aziz Sheikh, the lead researcher on the survey, said the results were excellent and that the two vaccines were working “brilliantly”.
The BBC’s health correspondent Lisa Summers says the Scottish survey was helpful in finding out how the covid vaccine works in the real world.
Because the population is small and the data of the whole population can be obtained quickly.
What are the limitations of this survey?
Lisa Summers says the limitation of the survey is that it only shows how much less likely you are to get seriously ill from a coronavirus infection after being vaccinated.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
The survey also looked at whether vaccinators’ immunity would decline after a certain period of time.
But the fact is that just one dose of the vaccine reduces the risk of coronavirus infection from “getting seriously ill” by 75 to 94 percent – according to the survey.
Coronavirus vaccination has now started in many countries of the world.
So far, most vaccinations have been given in Israel, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States.
So far, 111.3 million people worldwide have been infected with the coronavirus, and more than 2.4 million people have died in all countries.
The highest deaths were in the United States, Brazil, Mexico, India and the United Kingdom, respectively.
