After Admitting Mistake, AstraZeneca (Oxford) Faces Difficult Questions About Its Vaccine


Recommended Posts

"The announcement this week that a cheap, easy-to-make coronavirus vaccine appeared to be up to 90 percent effective was greeted with jubilation...

 

But since unveiling the preliminary results, AstraZeneca has acknowledged a key mistake in the vaccine dosage received by some study participants, adding to questions about whether the vaccine’s apparently spectacular efficacy will hold up under additional testing.

Scientists and industry experts said the error and a series of other irregularities and omissions in the way AstraZeneca initially disclosed the data have eroded their confidence in the reliability of the results."

It just reads to me like piece of fluff journalism from someone with an agenda.  Peer review will determine the future of the vacccine, not the opinion of a New York Times journalist.

Everybody was and is under huge pressure. Reduce that pressure! There will be a vaccine. And better an efficient and save vaccine in 6 or 12 months compared to a not well tested vaccine now.

Not good news for Thailand if it does not hold up.

When will you all learn?

What specifically in the article do you find fault with? Or is it that you and the Chinese govt have never forgiven  the NYT for exposing how the children of China's governing class have enriched themselves? Or how that same governing class has it's own special food sources because of the dangers posed by the food available to most Chinese?

I don't think either the company or the government ever claimed 90% efficacy.
