The US president claims that people will not get infected with СOVID-19 if they have been vaccinated.
Vaccination with drugs developed so far allows you to protect against all known varieties of coronavirus, including the “delta” strain. US President Joe Biden expressed his confidence in this, speaking at a public meeting in Cincinnati (Ohio) on Wednesday evening. The broadcast is carried out on CNN.
“Vaccines cope with any virus, including the delta variant, which is easier to transmit and is more deadly for unvaccinated people. You will not get infected with COVID-19 if you have been vaccinated,” he said.
Earlier on Wednesday, The New England Journal of Medicine published the results of studies according to which full vaccination with drugs from the Pfizer and BioNTech consortium, as well as AstraZeneca, provides a high degree of protection against the delta variant of the coronavirus. According to him, the introduction of both components of the drug Pfizer and Biotech gave 88 percent protection against infection with the delta strain compared to 93.7% with the “alpha” variant. Two doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine guaranteed protection at the level of 67% for the delta strain and 74.5% for the alpha variant.
