Oxford Vaccine Could Substantially Cut Spread

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the first two paragraphs.

The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine could lead to a “substantial” fall in the spread of the virus, say scientists.

The impact of Covid vaccines on transmission has been a crucial unknown that will dramatically shape the future of the pandemic.

The article also says you get this after one dose.

This study – on 17,000 people in the UK, South Africa and Brazil – showed protection remained at 76% during the three months after the first dose.

This rose to 82% after people were given the second dose.

It will be interesting to see, what figures drop out of the data, when millions have been vaccinated twice in the UK.

Conclusion

It looks like very good news to me!
