London, 29 April: A single dose of the vaccine for COVID-19 can reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus by only half. Public Health England (PHE) shared this information on Wednesday after its study. According to the report of Xinhua, about 38 percent to 49 percent of the people who have undergone corona vaccine have fewer infections in their family. Compared to those who have not got the vaccine. Those involved in the research had already taken a single dose of an authorized Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine in the UK.
Retired consultant in infectious disease control Peter English told Sky News that “the results are very encouraging.” He said, “Its results are already clear that vaccination will protect people from getting infected. According to the study, even if the vaccinated people get corona infected, but they are not so contagious and they can also spread corona infection to others. The chances of this are also less. ” He said, “These results are very encouraging.” Also read: COVID-19: 29,824 new corona cases, 33,903 discharges, 266 deaths in 24 hours in UP
