Strong stock market lift after vaccine news announced.
U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and German BioNTech announced on Monday that their vaccine trial was more than 90 per-cent effective against the coronavirus.
This lays the groundwork for a potential vaccine. The two companies released data Monday, from the first part of phase three interim results in large-scale trials.
According to CNBC, one of several media outlets reporting the case Monday, reports that scientists have hoped for a coronavirus vaccine that is at least 75 per-cent effective. Immunologist Anthony Fauci has previously said that one with between 50 and 60 per-cent efficiency would be acceptable.
