🇺🇸 Moderna: Covid vaccine shows nearly 95% protection

Out of the 35 or so threads that had a response in the last 24 hours in the “World” News forum, 24 were about US politics.
Here’s a story that’s a big story everywhere except in America apparently despite being an American success story:

The trial involved 30,000 people in the US with half being given two doses of the vaccine, four weeks apart. The rest had dummy injections.

The analysis was based on the first 95 to develop Covid-19 symptoms.

Only five of the Covid cases were in people given the vaccine, 90 were in those given the dummy treatment. The company says the vaccine is protecting 94.5% of people.

The data also shows there were 11 cases of severe Covid in the trial, but none happened in people who were immunised.

It is potentially a more useful vaccine in terms of storage.

As somebody who works in health care and has worked in the pharmaceutical industry, this rush to market scares me.
