The U.S.-made Novavax vaccine shows 96.4-percent efficiency against the basic strain of Covid-19. According to Reuters, it also shows 86.3-percent efficacy against the British strain.

Phase three of the tests of NVX CoV2373 vaccine took place in Great Britain. The research involved more than 15,000 participants aged fgrom 18 to 84. 27 percent of these people were over 65. 

The company claimed that the drug proved to be 100%-effective in tough cases. 

"In a smaller trial conducted in South Africa - where volunteers were primarily exposed to another newer, more contagious variant widely circulating there and spreading around the world - the Novavax vaccine was 55% effective, based on people without HIV, but still fully prevented severe illness", reads the story.
