So the vaccine that's being touted today....doesn't prevent you from getting covid. It prevents 90% of the symptoms. So you can still get it....you can still spread it...
And getting rid of the symptoms is a *good* thing....but it's not the miracle that everyone wants.
That's unclear. It would be very weird for it to prevent you from having symptoms and have no effect on transmission at all.
Mainly it's him reading/hearing that the 90% refers to preventing 90% of the symptoms that is flat out wrong. Their claim is that it is 90% effective in preventing COVID-19.
I'm not entirely clear on what that means. SARS-COV-2 is the virus, COVID-19 is the disease. If you don't have symptoms, do you have the disease?
