Pfizer, one of the frontrunners in the quest for the COVID - 19 vaccine, says its candidate vaccine is looking safe, and the company expects to have data next month on how well it is protecting people against coronavirus. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said Tuesday that he is intentionally revealing more information about the COVID - 19 candidate vaccine than he would about any other vaccine under development, because he wants the process to be open and transparent. Transparency is a must, particularly given this situation and the politicization of the vaccine, he said in Q & with journalists. The company had said Saturday that it was expanding its trial from 30 000 to 44 000 people to include teenagers, aged 16 - 18, as well as people with diseases such as HIV, and hepatitis A, B, or C. Tuesday, Bourla said the expansion took place because vaccines appeared to be extremely safe, and trial could be expand without delaying timeline for completion. Warp speed? Why coronavirus vaccine is more than a year away, despite medical researchers ' progress in Data released Tuesday, show that participants - both younger people and senior citizens - complain of only minor side effects, such as headaches and sore arms. The data includes about 6 000 people; some WHO receive active vaccine and other placebo. The company, which is developing its vaccine, called BNT162, in collaboration with German vaccine developer BioNTech, does not know which participant will get which. The Independent Data Safety Commission does know WHO gets active vaccine and has been checking regularly to make sure there are no health concerns, Pfizer executives say. There likely have been some serious health issues during the trial, but the safety panel has concluded that none of the vaccines relate, said Kathrin Jansen, Pfizer senior Vice President and head of vaccine research and development. Larger numbers should also allow companies to look more closely at subgroups of participants, such as those with underlying health conditions like HIV, and those WHO had virus when they received vaccine, she say. A final report on the safety and effectiveness of vaccine should be ready for regulators to review next month. It's not at all unprecedented: AstraZeneca's COVID - 19 vaccine trial has been stopped after illness. The vaccine must be at least 50% effective - protecting on average at least half the people WHO take it - for it to win federal approval and be given to the public. Pfizer is currently manufacturing BNT162 in three plants in the US - in Kalamazoo, Michigan,. Louis, Missouri, and Andover, Massachusetts - as well as in Germany and Belgium. It is not yet clear how long the vaccine's Protection will last. Companies are preparing for three possibilities: that people will need annual shots as with the flu, that they will need vaccine every few years, as with tetanus, or that it will be one - and - do, like the polio vaccine, said Dr. Mikael Dolsten, company's chief scientific officer. We think this vaccine has potential to give reasonable and good protection, but we need to monitor, Dolsten say.

The number of Global Cases reaches 10 475 817, and again, UNITED States account for 25% of the total Global number.

January 20 CDC says 3 US Airports Will Begin Screening for Coronavirus Three additional cases of what is now 2019 novel Coronavirus are reported in Thailand and Japan, causing CDC to begin screenings at JFK International, San Francisco International, and Los Angeles International Airports.

China made an unprecedented move not only to close off Wuhan and its population of 11 million, but to also place restricted access protocol on Huanggang, 30 miles to the East, where residents could leave without special permission. This means up to 18 million people are under strict lockdown. With a worldwide death toll of more than 200 and an exponential jump to more than 9800 cases, WHO finally declared a Public Health Emergency, for just the sixth time. Human - To - Human transmission is quickly spreading and can now be found in the UNITED States, Germany, Japan, Vietnam, and Taiwan.
