The Oxford vaccine is safe and effective, based on early results from phase 3 trials
The vaccine developed by the University of Oxford and the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca is safe and effective. That is the conclusion of the first comprehensive and peer-reviewed efficacy results that have been published in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet. The data is based on a set of phase three trials conducted in the UK and Brazil involving 11,636 volunteers, along with safety data from a total of 23,745 participants in four trials in the UK, Brazil and South Africa. The data indicates, according to the publication, that this immunization is 62% effective for those who receive two full doses and 90% for those who receive half the dose first and then a full dose. The researchers claim that only three out of thousands of volunteers experienced ‘serious adverse effects possibly related to the vaccine ”, and clarified that all have recovered or are recovering and continue to be part of the trial. In all, 168 people “experienced 175 serious adverse events, but 172 were not related to Covid-19 or control vaccines,” including one case of hemolytic anemia. The transverse myelitis case that was made public in September and that forced the trial to be temporarily halted is considered “possibly related to the vaccine.”

Triple the public squares called per year to lower the average age of the Madrid City Council staff and replenishing the necessary positions was the objective that the new Corporation set itself after assuming command.

With 633 public employment positions of different professional categories on free shift, 50 calls will be reached in all of 2020, while in 2018 only 15 were published and in 2019, 16. Thus, the year will end with 2,190 new positions, of which 823 are on free shift and 1,367 of internal promotion.

PSG-Basaksehir, from the sixth day of the Champions League, was suspended after the players of both teams left the pitch after a alleged racist act by the fourth official towards one of the assistants of the Turkish team. Apparently, the assistant would have given instructions to the main referee in an offensive tone when requesting the red card from Pierre Webo: “Go black!”, He would have said. From there, a tremendous brawl was mounted for ten minutes, the players left and two hours after the suspension of the duel was confirmed. This Wednesday, at 6:55 p.m., it will resume with another refereeing quartet.
