UK Health Minister Sajid Javid has tested positive for corona virus. He gave this information via a tweet. However, he said that he only has mild symptoms. Interestingly, Javid had taken both doses of the vaccine against this disease.
In the midst of increasing cases of infection recently, Javid has supported Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plan to remove all valid restrictions currently in force on Monday.
Javid first took the rapid lateral flow test in which he tested positive. After that, he also took the PCR test. After the PCR report also came positive, he isolated and started working from home. Javid has taken both doses of the vaccine.
However, vaccines are not 100% effective in preventing infection. But, people who have received both doses of the vaccine are significantly less likely to become seriously ill if infected with the virus.
According to a real-world analysis published by Public Health England, two doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine are 60 percent effective against symptomatic disease caused by the delta variant of the corona and 92% effective against hospitalization. Britain is currently facing a new wave of corona infection. But Johnson and Javid claim that the vaccine program has broken the link between COVID cases and deaths.
