The emergence of COVID-19 vaccines will change the course of coronavirus pandemic, but will not be able to stop it.
It will take more than a month before truly effective COVID-19 vaccines that can prevent severe cases of infection or block the disease altogether will be presented. Bloomberg writes about it.
However, the worst thing is that the virus constantly mutates and may not be immune to vaccines in the end, according to journalists of the publication.
This is one of the reasons officials are calling for continued social distancing and for masks to be worn even after the vaccination has gained momentum.
That’s why COVID-19 treatments – drugs that will reduce hospitalizations and deaths or even help fight the disease – are equally important in the fight against the pandemic.
