American pharmaceutical Pfizer Inc and its German partner BioNTech SE on Monday said that early data has shown that their Covid-19 vaccine is more than 90 per cent effective in preventing Covid-19.
Pfizer and German partner BioNTech SE are the first drugmakers to show successful data from a large-scale clinical trial of a coronavirus vaccine.
