Covid: Pfizer vaccine linked to fewer asymptomatic infection

New York, May 7, 2021-
The two-dose regimen of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines reduced asymptomatic infection, finds a study.

The study, led by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital showed that vaccination reduced the risk of asymptomatic infections by 72 per cent.

Overall vaccinations reduced the risk of asymptomatic and symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection by 79 per cent in vaccinated people compared with the unvaccinated individuals.

Protection was even greater for people who completed two doses. A week or more after receiving the second dose, vaccinated individuals were 96 per cent less likely than unvaccinated people to become infected with SARS-CoV-2.

When researchers looked just at asymptomatic infections, vaccination reduced the risk by 90 per cent, according to a research letter that appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

“While further research is needed, by preventing infections, including in people who have no symptoms, there is a high possibility that vaccination will decrease transmission of SARS-CoV-2,” said Diego Hijano, from the St. Jude Department of Infectious Diseases.

The study involved 5,217 St. Jude employees who were eligible under Tennessee state guidelines for vaccination between December 17, 2020, and March 20, 2021. (Agency)

Five yoga suggestions to help you breathe easy

New Delhi, June 17, 2021 (Yes Punjab) Yoga is often mistaken as an 'exercise' that only caters to the body. But the most important thing we forget, is that the central dogma of yoga is breath. Life is breath. "We breathe in oxygen and release carbon dioxide, it's simple biology," is what some said. But breathing is a very powerful...
