The vaccine against the coronavirus developed by the University of Oxford, UK is highly effective in preventing people from developing coronavirus symptoms.
According to a large-scale study conducted by the team of Oxford scientists, the vaccine ensures 70 per cent protection against the virus by preventing the development coronavirus symptoms. However, they are confident that by changing the dosage, this percentage can be further increased to 90 per cent.
Meanwhile, the vaccines developed by the US pharmaceutical companies, Pfizer and Moderna, have shown 95 per cent protection against the virus.
However, the Oxford vaccine comes with advantages that far outweigh this factor. For example, the Oxford vaccine can be easily stores, which will enable transporting it to various corners of the world much easier. Also, it comes with a cheaper price tag than the two US vaccines.
