While the vaccination campaign continues in Spain, the South African Government has decided to suspend the application of the Oxford and AstraZeneca vaccine, after knowing a study that shows very limited efficacy against the coronovarius variant that has been discovered in that country and that has generated some alarm in everything. Spain has suspended flights with South Africa, except for Spaniards and residents.

For its part, the pharmaceutical Pfizer estimates to enter in 2021 close to 12,000 million euros on account of your COVID-19 vaccine, of which a margin of at least 20% will remain. His forecasts are based on his ability to manufacture and distribute a large number of doses of his serum and, also, on a future with a strong epidemiological burden.
