“If the question is whether we can prevent this epidemic with this vaccine, then my answer is: yes, because I believe that it will have a dramatic effect not only on the prevention of therapeutic infections,” Ahin told Mainz’s paper.
He said he is confident the treatment will work because it attacks the virus on multiple levels.
“This vaccine prevents COVID-19 from entering our cells. But even if the virus manages to find a way, the T-cells hit it head on and get rid of it. We have trained the immune system very well to complete these two defensive moves. We now know that the virus cannot defend itself against these mechanisms, ”he said.
He added, “Now we know that vaccines can defeat this virus.”
On Monday, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and German company Bioentech announced that their vaccine has proven to be 90 percent effective in preventing candidates from getting sick during a Phase 3 test.
