 - COVID-19 - Nov 9 SHARE ON:

The UK has locked in 30 million doses of Pfizer and BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine after breaking reports of its 90% effectiveness rate. 

The results came from the third stage of human trials involving more than 43,000 participants who received two doses, a placebo or an immunisation jab, which resulted in a 90% success rate in protection from COVID-19.

Pfizer and BioNTech aim to send the vaccine to regulators for approval by the end of November, with the UK’s order of 30 million being enough for 15 million people.

In a recently-published statement, the South End Core revealed that they will not be decorating their area at the National Stadium for any of their upcoming matches following the authorities’ disapproval of the proposals for the return of fans in stadia. 

The supporters organisation issued an apology to the players for their absence, stating that they had to shelve some big plans due to these issues. 

Head of South End Core, Dillon Mercieca took to Facebook to highlight an alleged inconsistency in reasoning, shocked at the fact that football supporters are considered to spread COVID-19 but mass groups of people during ‘Christmas in the City’ is acceptable, appealing to members of the government for an explanation.
