Coronavirus Variant Is Indeed More Transmissible, New Study Suggests - The New York Times
To look at the impact of the current rate of #vaccinations, the researchers made a model in which 200,000 people were vaccinated each week. That pace was too slow to have much effect on the outbreak. “That kind of pace wouldn’t really be able to support much relaxation of any of the control measures,” Dr. Davies said.
But when they raised the vaccinations to 2 million a week, they saw a reduction in the peak burden on I.C.U.s. Whether the U.K. can ramp up vaccinations by a factor of 10 is unknown.
