Soriot said that if we have recorded the proper efficacy of the vaccine, then we have to validate it. For this, we have to do another trial. This trial will also be at international level, but it is expected to take less time because we know the effectiveness of the vaccine so we will need less number of patients.

The trial of the vaccine led to AstraZeneca and Oxford confessing that there was an error in the vaccine dose, leading to 90 percent effectiveness. Thereafter, questions are arising over the data related to the effect of the vaccine. Scientists believe that people have lost faith in the vaccine’s impact after a company error.
