Ryan Tubridi was stunned when one of the guests was able to get excited about a recent breakthrough in the Kovid-19 vaccine.
Top immunologist Professor Luke O’Neill spoke to Tubbs at this week’s Late Show, where the pair talked about everything and Kovid, mainly the major positive news that came out this week.
On Monday, drug maker Fischer showed that one of their Kovid-19 vaccine trials was 90% effective.
Ryan and guest professor O’Neill were excited about the news.
Speaking on the show, O’Neill said: “I’m still excited to be by my side.
“90% effective vaccine. If I give you a vaccine it means you are completely protected from the virus.
Tubbs responded with surprise: “Amazing”
Luke O’Neill, however, referred to the “warnings” surrounding the news.
He added: “We have not seen the data.
He raised the lid on what a person he knew said about the vaccine.
“A friend of mine was on trial and he told me he had a little bit of influenza and injection pain like other vaccines. But this is a strong vaccine, Ryan, which boosts the immune system.
However, experts added that “they are really optimistic, they expect 60 percent – they saw 90 percent, so they completely eliminated the level of effectiveness”.
Although the vaccine has not yet been approved, leaders at home and abroad are already discussing how to develop a vaccine in the first half of 2021.
