British Research Reveals the Sad Truth Life Will Not Return to Normal for a Long Time After the Corona Vaccine

A report published in the UK revealed that life could not return to normal for a long time after the corona vaccine. It is estimated that quarantine and social distance will continue in developed countries until next spring, and in others for years, due to people who refuse to be vaccinated and the doses are not distributed equally to everyone.


British research reveals the sad truth Life will not return to normal for a long time after the corona vaccine

In a report prepared under the leadership of Oxford University and published by the British Academy of Sciences, it was warned that if a new type of coronavirus vaccine was found, the pandemic would not end immediately. In the report, it was noted that 8 out of 10 people should be vaccinated for the vaccine to stop the epidemic.

The report in question came after the Pfizer / BionTech vaccine was announced to provide more than 90 percent protection. In a statement made by Pfizer on Monday, it was announced that the experimental coronavirus vaccine developed with the German company BionTech SE was successful in the final stage of clinical trials. In the interim data of the study conducted with more than 43 thousand volunteers, it was stated that the vaccine was more than 90 percent effective.

MEASURES WILL NOT BE REMOVED IF THE VACCINE IS APPLIED

According to the news on The Newyork Times; British scientists said that the vaccine, which is expected to be distributed to healthcare workers and chronic patients before the New Year, will not eliminate quarantine and social distance measures if approved. Stating that there will be a huge burden on healthcare professionals, experts said that one group can be vaccinated while others can wait until next year. Also, the report emphasized that the final results of any vaccine have not been announced and approved, and it should be taken into account that the vaccines may not work.

TWO MAIN PROBLEMS COME TO TOP

Sociologist Melinda Mills from Oxford University emphasized that the vaccination program will face two main problems: the first is the difficulty of getting the vaccine to everyone, and the second is the presence of people who refuse to be vaccinated.

10 BILLION DOSES IS NEEDED TO END THE OUTBREAK

Pfizer / Biontech aims to produce 1.3 billion doses of vaccine by the end of 2021. However, he states that at least 10 billion doses of vaccine are needed to end the pandemic in the world.

In conjunction with Pfizer / Biontech, Moderna, Oxford / AstraZeneca, and other final-stage vaccines are estimated to be successful, this figure could only rise to 5 billion doses by the end of next year. However, a different report released by Oxfam last month stated that 51 percent of the vaccine stock of AstraZeneca, Gamaleya / Sputnik, Moderna, Pfizer, and Sinovac, which are in the final stages of vaccination studies, were purchased by wealthy countries that only have 13 percent of the world's population.

CAN LAST FOR YEARS IN POOR COUNTRIES

For this reason, the researchers predicted that the pandemic will continue in developed countries at least until the next spring, while in others it may continue for years. Also, it was reported that logistical problems experienced due to the need for storage of RNA-containing vaccines in super cold conditions may be effective in this situation.

36% OF THE PEOPLE REFUSE TO HAVE THE VACCINE

On the other hand, the survey for the report revealed that 36 percent of people in the country would not get a potential coronavirus vaccine. Experts said that if more than a third of people refused to be vaccinated, the vaccines developed would not be successful in stopping the epidemic.

CITIZENS SHOULD BE INFORMED

Professor Mills pointed out that clear communication with the public about the vaccine will be vital in the coming months. Mills said, "It is necessary to have a frank talk with the public about how long the epidemic will last and that life will not return to normal immediately when vaccines arrive. We must move away from one-way transfer of information and establish an open dialogue that addresses misinformation and does not ignore people's vaccine concerns."
