The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has given a statement on coronavirus (COVID-19). Johnson has confirmed that the Pfizer/BioNTech Vaccine has been tested on over 40,000 volunteers, with the results suggesting it is 90% effective at protecting individuals against coronavirus. However, these findings need to be peer-reviewed and Johnson cautions that there are several more hurdles which must be overcome before the vaccine can be used. If the vaccine passes these hurdles, UK-wide NHS led programme of vaccine distribution will commence as the government ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine. Additionally, the Department of Health and Social Care has confirmed that rapid testing will be rolled out across England following the pilot in Liverpool.
