Dr .. Kavita Patel predicted that the 4th of July would mark a turning point or inflation in the fight against covid for the United States.

Pfizer released new data from Israel, suggesting that its two-shot vaccine is about 97% effective in preventing pathological covid cases and 94% effective against asymptomatic cases. The analysis showed a high level of protection against the highly transmissible B.1.1.7 variant from the UK, which is the highest in the U.S. Is also spread in.
