After so many gloomy titles, we finally have some great news about the vaccinated people amidst the coronavirus outbreak.
The Guardian just noted that vaccinated people are three times less likely to test positive.
An optimistic headline of the Guardian reveals that a new study suggests fully vaccinated people are less likely to pass virus on to others, and more 16- and 17-year-olds in UK could be given the green light for the vaccine.
Covid monitoring programme results are in
The Guardian cites a recent study and reveals the following news.
Double vaccinated people are three times less likely than unvaccinated people to test positive for coronavirus, according to the React-1 study.
The study is a major Covid monitoring programme that is led by scientists from Imperial College London – this is based on swab tests taken by almost 100,000 people in England between 24 June and 12 July.
The study’s PCR test results are also suggesting the fact that fully vaccinated people may be less likely than unvaccinated people to pass the virus on to others. It’s important to note that this is due to having a smaller viral load on average and therefore likely shedding less virus.
Prof Paul Elliott, director of the React programme, said the following:
These findings confirm our previous data showing that both doses of a vaccine offer good protection against getting infected. However we can also see that there is still a risk of infection, as no vaccine is 100% effective, and we know that some double vaccinated people can still become ill from the virus. So even with the easing of restrictions, we should still act with caution to help protect one another and curb the rate of infections.

The coronavirus vaccines have been deployed all over the world for a few months now, and they are still surrounded by massive controversies due to their side effects for some patients.
It’s been also reported that there are some crazy data about unvaccinated people and covid 19 out.
On the other hand, important news about the treatment that the FDA just approved is out.
