Read Time:2 Min, 0 Sec

As researchers struggle to tally mortality statistics as the pandemic rages across the globe, a major breakthrough was announced by Pfizer and BioNTech. “Today is a great day for science and humanity. The first set of results from our Phase 3 COVID-19 vaccine trial provides the initial evidence of our vaccine’s ability to prevent COVID-19,” said Dr. Albert Bourla, Pfizer Chairman and CEO.  

The analysis evaluated 94 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in trial participants after a jab from Pfizer found to be more than 90 percent effective. View the full release here. The vaccine has been tested on 43,538 people with 42% having diverse backgrounds and no safety concerns have been raised. Continue reading on Pfizer. Stocks surged on this news, with Britain’s FTSE 100 index rising 247 points – five percent – at around midday. That means more than £83billion added to its total value.

Proper hand-washing to avoid coronavirus and other infectious diseases includes the following steps.

  • Be sure to get your hands wet by placing them under a running water faucet or other sources of hot or cold running water.
  • Apply soap on the palm of your hand and lather the soap by rubbing both palms together.
  • With the palm of the hand, make sure to rub soap on the back of the other hand and repeat using the opposite side.
  • After lathering the palms and back of the hand on both sides, lather between fingers, fingertips, wrists, and thumb of both hands thoroughly. The whole process from washing with the soap from between palms to the fingertips and thumbs should take at least 20 seconds.
  • After 20 seconds of scrubbing and lathering, rinse the palm of the hand, back of the hand, between fingers, fingertips, wrists, and thumb with clean running water from the faucet or other freshwater sources.
  • If using a faucet, turn off the tap water by using your elbow or a paper towel.
  • Dry both hands with a fresh paper towel or air dry thoroughly.
