Investors seem to be finding some encouragement from CNN reports that Pfizer and Moderna are testing their vaccines against the new Covid strain discovered in the UK.

CNN has quoted Modern as saying: “Based on the data to date, we expect that the Moderna vaccine-induced immunity would be protective against the variants recently described in the UK.

“We will be performing additional tests in the coming weeks to confirm this expectation.”

Meanwhile, Pfizer has said it is “generating data” on how well blood samples from people immunised with its vaccine “may be able to neutralize the new strain from the UK,” CNN added.
