But now its efficacy will be tested as the “delta” variant—first identified in India—spreads rapidly. A third wave is “definitely under way” in Britain, one government science adviser, Adam Finn, has declared. As a result, plans to end lockdown restrictions today have been delayed until July 19th. Worryingly, the delta variant appears to be more transmissible than any other. It may also be more severe and deadly. Even people who have previously been infected may be vulnerable. Thankfully, the vaccines made by Pfizer and AstraZeneca, the main ones deployed in Britain, remain 80% effective after two doses. However, efficacy is considerably lower after a single dose. Britain is now rushing to get jabs into arms of the 22% of its adults who have had just one and the 19% who have had none. If that effort slackens, expect more delays to the end of lockdown. 英國有著全球最成功的新冠疫苗施打計畫,不過隨著首現於印度的「delta」變種病毒快速擴散,(英國的新冠疫苗施打計畫) 如今卻也面臨著有效性的挑戰。身為政府 (防疫) 科學顧問的 Adam Finn 表明,英國正「非常明顯地」處於第三波疫情中。因此,原本預計在今天解除的封鎖措施便延後至 (今年) 7月19日。令人擔憂的是,delta 變種病毒似乎比此前的新冠病毒還更具傳染力、重症率以及致死率。即便之前被感染過的病人仍可能再度染疫。不過值得慶幸的是,當完整施打完兩劑由輝瑞 (Pfizer) 製造的疫苗或在英國普遍施打的 AZ 疫苗,身體便能維持 80% 的有效力。相對來說,如果只打一劑之有效力將明顯不足。英國現在加緊為 22% 只打一劑的成年人以及 19% 尚未接種的成年人施打疫苗。如果這樣的努力有所鬆懈,那麼解封的時間只會推遲更久。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Successful (adj.): 成功的 (形) ✅Efficacy (n.): 功效、效能 (名) ✅Variant (n.): 變體、變種 (名) ✅Definitely (adv.): 確實地 (副) ✅Restriction (n.): 限制、限制措施 (名) ✅Worryingly (adv.): 令人擔憂的 (副) ✅Transmissible (adj.): 可傳播的 (形) ✅Severe (adj.): 嚴峻的 (形) ✅Vulnerable (adj.): 易受傷害的 (形) ✅Deploy (v.): 部署、派送 (動) ✅Effort (n.): 努力、工夫 (名) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專: ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號: ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道: ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台: — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤
