Ugur Shaheen, head of the German company Biontec that developed the Pfizer vaccine against the Corona virus, said that whoever receives the vaccine will not become an infectious person or a carrier of the virus.
Shaheen explained in an interview with the German newspaper “Bild”, that “after vaccination with the vaccine, the possibility of a person transmitting the virus, even if infected with it, becomes 92% low. With this information, we now know that we can effectively contain the epidemic if enough people are vaccinated.”
“The light at the end of the tunnel has become brighter … once enough people are vaccinated, we will control the epidemic,” he said.
He continued: “The results of the studies conducted on the Biontec vaccine are much better than I expected, and the statistics are wonderful, and they prove that we are on the right path.”
The German company “Biontech” owned by Shaheen and his wife Ozlam Tureigi, in partnership with the American “Pfizer”, has succeeded in developing a vaccine against the Corona virus, and it is currently used all over the world.
