The US Drug Enforcement Administration FDA has approved the Pfizer vaccine on an emergency basis. The agency said the approval of the Pfizer-Bio-Tech vaccine was a major breakthrough during the global epidemic. There have been more than 295,000 deaths from Corona in the United States so far.
According to research, this vaccine is 95% effective in protecting against code 19. It is also declared safe for use by the FDA. President Trump has said the initial use of the vaccine will begin 24 hours earlier.
The US Drug Enforcement Administration (FDA) says it will allow emergency use of the code vaccine developed by Pfizer Biotech.
The FDA said in a statement that it would “expedite its final approval and approval of its use.”
US Health Secretary Alex Azar said the vaccine should be approved in the next few days.
It should be noted that the vaccine developed by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer has already been approved for public use in the United Kingdom, Canada, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
There were 3,000 daily deaths in the United States on Wednesday, more than in any other day in the world.
On Thursday, a panel of medical experts recommended that the FDA allow the vaccine to be used in an emergency. The 23-member panel concluded that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the disadvantages or effects.
However demands for a second lockdown have gained momentum in Germany after 29,875 people were diagnosed with the virus every day during the second wave of Corona and 585 died in a single day.
This is the highest daily death toll from the virus in Germany since the epidemic began.
German Finance Minister Peter Altmeier warned: “We have to act quickly, we have to do more than we have already planned.”
It should be noted that a partial lockdown has been in force in Germany since last November and entertainment venues, restaurants and bars in the country are already closed and some restrictions were being planned to be eased on the occasion of Christmas.
Germany’s public health chief has described the situation as “extremely critical”. Speaking in parliament, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said “500 deaths a day is unacceptable.” She also stressed the need for tougher sanctions.
In addition to Germany, Russia and Ukraine also recorded record deaths during the second wave of Corona on Friday.
However, the latest figures released by Russia on Corona victims and deaths have raised some suspicions.
According to Russia’s Epidemic Task Force, 613 deaths have been reported in the country in the past 24 hours due to corona, bringing the total number of deaths in the country to 45893.
However, according to official figures released on Russia’s “additional” deaths, the number of deaths due to other causes is higher than expected. The death toll in Russia in October this year was higher than in October last year. The death toll is about 50,000 more.
Russia’s statistics agency Rostat says 22,761 of the deaths in October this year were confirmed or suspected code victims.
