(CAMBRIDGE, USA.) JUST IN: Coronavirus Report – For the second time this month, there’s promising news from a #COVID19 vaccine candidate: Moderna said Monday its shots provide strong protection, with efficacy of 94.5% a dash of hope as cases surge to over 11-million in the U.S. and to 54- million around the world #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Nov.16: The Cambridge-based company said its vaccine appears to be 94.5% effective, according to preliminary data from the company’s still ongoing study. A week ago, competitor Pfizer Inc. announced its own COVID-19 vaccine appeared similarly effective — news that puts both companies on track to seek permission within weeks for emergency use in the U.S:

  • Global Confirmed

    54,506,165

  • Global Deaths

    1,319,098

  • U.S. Confirmed

    11,041,979

  • U.S. Deaths

    246,236

Dr. Stephen Hoge, Moderna’s president, welcomed the “really important milestone” but said having similar results from two different companies is what’s most reassuring: ” That should give us all hope that actually a vaccine is going to be able to stop this pandemic and hopefully get us back to our lives,” Hoge told The Associated Press.

” It won’t be Moderna alone that solves this problem: It’s going to require many vaccines” to meet the global demand, he added ”

A vaccine can’t come fast enough, as virus cases topped 11 million in the U.S. over the weekend — 1 million of them recorded in just the past week: The pandemic has killed more than 1.3 million people worldwide, more than 245,000 of them in the U.S: Still, if the Food and Drug Administration allows emergency use of Moderna’s or Pfizer’s candidates, there will be limited, rationed supplies before the end of the year. Both require people to get two shots, several weeks apart
