It is ironic that an EUA for the vaccine was approved by the relevant US authorities. On the day the death toll from the pandemic recorder its daily highest. This is a crucial moment that brings hope in a panic situation. Hospitalisations also recorded the highest number of entries. The number of cases testing positive was also at a record figure. It is going to be sometime before we normalise. The countries top scientist in charge of the pandemic response says the next 30 – 90 days may be the worst we have ever had. The situation is as foreseen before thanksgiving. Consequent projections are playing out. We see a further surge as the Christmas holidays are upon us. The EUA does not mean vaccines can start as a body that works in tandem has to recommend it. It then Goes back to the FDA for Approval.
