Can Moderna's vaccines prevent the spread of corona?

 The discovery of the coronavirus vaccine has raised hopes around the world. People are hoping that soon they will be able to return to normal life.

 But now the chief medical officer of Moderna says that if the vaccine made by them is taken, the person concerned will be protected from COVID-19. However, the effectiveness of the vaccine in preventing the spread of this coronavirus has not yet been proven.

The New York Post reports that the Moderna's corona vaccine will protect a person from COVID-19. But even after taking the vaccine, the virus can spread to others through the person concerned, said Moderna's chief medical officer, Tall Jacques.

That is, if the vaccine is given, the person can spread the virus through them even if they are protected. Vaccine recipients can carry the virus. How effective this vaccine is in preventing the person from becoming a carrier of the virus is not yet known.

"I think we need to be careful," Tal Jacques said in an interview with a TV channel on Monday. No attempt should be made to increase the effectiveness of the vaccine. 

While we are bringing this vaccine, we have no hard evidence of its effectiveness in preventing the spread of the virus. Asked if it prevents the spread, I would say yes. But there is no hard evidence for this. So the arrival of the vaccine does not mean that we will change our precautionary measures overnight. '

The New York Post reports that Tal Jacques's remarks will surely dampen the enthusiasm for the vaccine. The idea was that since the vaccine had arrived, the epidemic was over. But the reality is not so simple. 

Even after the introduction of the vaccine, people have to adhere to the health care policies of the COVID-19 period. As a result, economic recovery will not be easy.

Announcing the development of the vaccine last week, Moderna said that their vaccine is 95 percent effective in preventing COVID-19. But this effectiveness only applies to the body of the vaccine recipient.

Before moderna, however, the announcement of the invention of the vaccine came from Pfizer. They also said that the effectiveness of their vaccine is 95 percent.

 In the meantime, the organization has sought approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for their vaccine. The approval is expected in the first half of December.
