According to the British newspaper “The Times” vaccination against Kovid-19 in the UK, where more than 15 million people have already been dosed, is reducing hospitalizations, deaths and transmission of coronovirus.
When comparing the cases of the elderly who have not taken the vaccine, preliminary data suggests that the vaccination plan is reducing hospitalizations and deaths from Kovid-19, the newspaper emphasizes.
Another study conducted among vaccinated health workers has also found low levels of infection, suggesting vaccines reduce cases.
“The Times” noted that this is preliminary data based primarily on the Pfizer vaccine. The other preparation used in the UK is AstraZeneca.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson acknowledged on Monday that there are interesting indications that vaccines are working, but added that “caution” and “irreversible” actions when deciding to reduce current restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus do.
The British Immunization Scheme, which began on 8 December, entered a new phase yesterday when it began with vaccination of more than 65 people, with the four most vulnerable groups already receiving dosages.
Health officials are confident that everyone over 50 will receive the first dose by the end of April.
The number of daily infections has dropped by 29% in the last seven days in the United Kingdom, recording 9,765 new positivity yesterday, up from 10,972 on Sunday.
The death toll has also been recorded, with 230 registered yesterday, 258 on Sunday and 333 last Monday.
