The BBC report is less effusive than the ABC item but has a lot more detail about the testing process and trial results.Interesting report on the "Oxford" vaccine. It seems counterintuitive, to an unqualified person, that 1 1/2 doses is more effective than 2 doses. The advantage of this vaccine is that it seems that it can be manufactured fairly soon in Australia and does not require the 'special' transportation conditions of some other vaccines. So good news all round - at this stage anyway.
Extensive testing has found the University of Oxford coronavirus vaccine can be up to 90 per cent effective at stopping people developing COVID-19 symptoms, if the right doses are administered.www.abc.net.au
