every day here you reveal to us more about your real acumen :yes4: No vaccine is 100% proof, but it is not as bad as the Chinese ones (at less than 50% efficacy)
Oye bufundu, the malaria shot, polio shot, and flu shot you receive are all 50% effective, your brain is also only 30% effective. Does that make you retard?

go to google type what does efficacy rate mean?

while you are at it look up the definition of utilization rate.

you may then find the answer to your question i.e. if something is 50% effective in eradicating a virus _ it is far worse than something that is 90% effective.

P.S the brain is not 30% effective; it is 100% effective. It's just humans only "utilize" a small percentage of that 100% capability. Do yourself a favor and work at understanding language

Even your doctors are now begging for Chinese COVID vaccines because of the huge shortfalls in GANGEDESH... i guess all your vedu doctors took a vial of vaccines when they took a dump in the GANGE last week :D

Oh wait i know. Producing 1 billion vaccines was all a bollywood imagination, until most of the pharmacist/workers at the Serum instiutute of india got sick from covid and many died due to lack of oxygen, president of SII also ran away :D:D:D


No no vaccine lef ohhh Bhagwan where did da vaccine go?

We should not spread rumors. He was more than 80 years old. Recovered from covid he got in Indian. Never requires life support. Died of heart attack.

Look guys we are living in an environment where some assholes are of the view that a chip is being planted in US. There claims are not backed by any scientific evidence. News like this create new morons who are refusing vaccine.

Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines have been dragged into the spotlight over efficacy concerns against the new double mutant variant first found in India after an infectious disease specialist from the US, who had received two Pfizer shots prior to his arrival in India, passed away after testing positive for coronavirus at the age of 81, local media reported on Wednesday.

Although there is no direct evidence showing reduced efficacy of Pfizer vaccines against the new mutated strain, previous studies suggest a reduced protection rate against other variants, health experts reached by the Global Times said.

Dr Rajendra Kapila, a professor at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey specializing in infectious diseases, arrived in India in late March and was scheduled to fly back to the US in mid-April, but he found he was infected with COVID-19 on April 8 and was later admitted to Delhi's Shanti Mukund Hospital, local media the Hindustan Times reported on Wednesday.

He died at the hospital on April 28, the report said, but no details on the cause of his death have been disclosed, nor has it been specified if Kapila was infected with the double mutated virus.

"For the last one year I have been working at a COVID-19 lab in New Jersey and had ensured a safe environment at home," said Dr Deepti, Kapila's wife who traveled with him to India. "It is ironic that we came to India for two weeks and he contracted it here," she said, Hindustan Times reported.

Mainstream Western media have stayed silent on Kapila's death, and the Shanti Mukund Hospital did not reply to the Global Times' inquiry as of press time.

However, reports have been circulating on social media such as Reddit since May, which said that Kapila had died from undisclosed complications of COVID-19. A Facebook user named Neha Majmudar, who claimed he had been given consent from a family friend of Kapila, replied under a post that "Kapila had history of diabetes and CAD S/P stents… and passed away following a massive heart attack in the early morning hours." But this information cannot be verified so far.

India's National Institute of Virology shared limited data on the double mutant virus strain in April, which showed that of the 361 genome-sequenced samples collected between January and March this year, 220 of them - almost 61 percent - had carried the double mutation, Indian Express reported.

In another article, the Indian Express said that the strain, also known as the B.1.617 variant, is fast replacing the previous variant in south India and is becoming dominant, according to scientists at a local Indian research center on Tuesday.

Tao Lina, a Shanghai-based vaccine expert, told the Global Times on Wednesday there is no direct evidence showing whether the Pfizer vaccine is effective on this variant or not, while noting that China-developed inactivated vaccines might be more effective against the double mutant than mRNA ones.

"Technically, Pfizer vaccine uses human cells to synthesize S protein in the human body to produce antibodies, whereas China-developed vaccines, including Sinovac and Sinopharm, use inactivated viruses as antibodies, which may cover more variants than Pfizer does," Tao said.

Tao added that while the efficacy of Pfizer against the new double mutant remains unknown, previous medical studies suggested a reduced efficacy rate of Pfizer shots against other COVID-19 variants.

"The human body develops resistance to vaccines, and the variants may need even five or six doses of vaccine instead of merely two to produce enough protection," he noted.

Chinese experts also warned that seniors, people who are obese and those with chronic diseases may have a reduced response to vaccines, while urging India to conduct further research on Kapila's case.

According to the World Health Organization on Wednesday, over the past week India accounted for nearly half, or 46 percent, of the world's total COVID-19 infections, and a quarter of global death toll.

According to a press release on its official website, Pfizer said its vaccines show a 95.3 percent efficacy rate against severe COVID-19 cases, which has been defined by the US Food and Drug Administration.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So... Pfizer's vaccine is fake. No wonder the epidemic in USA continues even though many people are already vaccinated.

Pfizer and others like it are just fast developed vaccine using short cuts, not surprising it failed again mutated covid 19 strains. Chinese vaccines are the best becuase they use the old time consuming method of vaccine development.

he died of a cardiac arrest, he was in his 80’s suffered from diabetes and heart disease.
Yes he caught COVID in India, but was breathing normally unaided by ventilator or oxygen.

This is the second thread on this topic.
Pfizer and others like it are just fast developed vaccine using short cuts, not surprising it failed again mutated covid 19 strains. Chinese vaccines are the best becuase they use the old time consuming method of vaccine development.
wonder why Seychelles is on lock down after vaccinating 60% of her population with super duper Chinese vaccine.

Even the US, with "very successful" vaccination program, still has 50,000 new infections and more than 700 new deaths per day.

No vaccine should be said as more effective than the others by now, because most collected data are just selective, twisted by bias media and politics, and inadequate for a complete and thorough assessment and above all, the power of a lucrative more-than-100 billions-US$ market. For that money, the press would say anything they are told by pharma companies.

Western media cheered when some Chinese official says that Chinese vaccine are not so effective. But that does not mean that Western vaccines, from Pfizer to Moderna to ..., are of any better. For the time being, the Chinese are confident enough to say the truth, but the Western governments, after so many failures, are scared of the truth. They would say their vaccines are still the best, regardless of the results of vaccination. Few scientists, who are brave enough, may say the truth, but their voice could easily be silenced by powerful "free" media.

I'm scheduled to get vaccinated and I think it'll probably be the Pfizer vaccine.

We have a large Indian population here in Canada that were allowed in thanks to the Liberals lax immigration policy and now we're all paying the price for it.

We really need a ban on all travel to and from India and the government needs to stop muddying this debate with their stupid bans on Pakistan to avoid hurting India's feelings.

indeed hard to beat a supa powa
Indian virus is a super virus from a wannabe superpower, it ain't easy to defeat it.
No one can deny Modi did what he promised, he made India a superpower... at spreading Covid19 globally.

I'm waiting for Trump to start calling this the "Indian Virus"
