Pfizer CEO ‘not certain’ their vaccine stops transmission of Covid-19

The top executive at pharma giant Pfizer said it still isn’t clear if those who receive the company’s vaccine will be able transmit the coronavirus to others, just one day after the UK became the first to approve the inoculation.


While Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said he expects the vaccine rollout to be rapid after it gets the green light from US health officials, following in the steps of Britain, he noted that it remains to be seen whether recipients of the jab can still carry and pass the virus. “Even though I’ve had the protection, am I still able to transmit it to other people?” NBC’s Lester Holt asked in an interview on Thursday night, prompting a startling response from Bourla: "I think this is something that needs to be examined.

We are not certain about that right now."


Direktor Pfizerja pravi, da ni prepričan, da tisti, ki prejmejo cepivo ne morejo okužiti drugih.

Izvršni direktor farmacevtskega giganta Pfizer je dejal, da še vedno ni jasno, ali bodo tisti, ki prejmejo cepivo podjetja, lahko prenesli koronavirus drugim, le en dan po tem, ko je Združeno kraljestvo prvo odobrilo cepljenje.


Medtem ko je izvršni direktor Pfizerja Albert Bourla dejal, da pričakuje, da bo uvedba cepiva hitra, potem, ko bo ameriška zdravstvena služba odobrila zeleno luč, po britanskem vzgledu, je opozoril, da je treba še ugotoviti, ali lahko prejemniki cepiva še vedno nosijo in prenašajo virus.


Lester Holt iz NBC-ja je v intervjuju v četrtek zvečer vprašal Bourlo: "Kljub temu, da imam zaščito, ga še vedno lahko prenašam na druge?" , slednji je odgovoril:

"Mislim, da je to nekaj, kar je treba preučiti.

Trenutno v to nismo prepričani. "
