Last week Europe paused all use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine after a few patients reported blood clots. But after the U.S. trial showed not only that it was was’ safe and 79 % effective overall’ with little risk of blood clotting, it is back in use.

The two-shot vaccine has impressive reports of preventing severe cases of Coronavirus, can be stored in regular refrigerators, and is cheap at $4 a shot.

Doctor Fauci, who was briefed on the data Sunday, said:

“The one thing that one can say for sure, that this is good for the world, because it’s a cheap vaccine. It’s got good results. They will likely be able to produce enough for a lot of different countries.’
Oxford researchers, who developed the vaccine with the British-Swedish pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca, said their coronavirus vaccine is “safe and highly effective, adding to previous trial data from the United Kingdom, Brazil and South Africa, as well as real-world impact data from the United Kingdom.”
“The data look good. The numbers don’t lie,” added Dr. Fauci.
