Israel says Pfizer Covid vaccine is just 39% effective as delta spreads

Pfizer and BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine is just 39% effective in Israel where the delta variant is the dominant strain, but still provides strong protection against severe illness and hospitalization, according to a new report from the country’s Health Ministry.

The efficacy figure, which is based on an unspecified number of people between June 20 and July 17, is down from an earlier estimate of 64% two weeks ago and conflicts with data out of the U.K. that found the shot was 88% effective against symptomatic disease caused by the variant.”

  3. Not sure if it is just Askimet. Since the 8th of July, ever greater numbers of e-mails I normally receive go direct to the spam folder, including long time correspondents and even some in my contact list. No changes to filters on my end.

    Beginning to suspect Alphabet is pre-culling and tagging key words or some such.
