We all know that with hindsight it's easy to say 'if only we'd done this a week or months' earlier we could have saved many lives'. But if you look at where we were in February, did we know enough about Covid-19 that would really have made decisions any different. Ever since coronavirus arrived in the UK, ministers have repeatedly said they were "following the science". Now we have researchers at Oxford saying there are "encouraging" signs their coronavirus vaccine is showing a strong immune response in adults in their 60s and 70s. Apparently, older people's weaker immune systems mean vaccines do not always function as well as they do in younger people. But the trial results, based on 560 healthy adult volunteers, suggest those in the 56-69 and over-70 age groups had a similar response to younger adults. This suggests the vaccine will help to protect some of the most vulnerable people in society, but further research will be needed before they can be sure. More studies to look at the vaccine's overall efficiency are expected within weeks. Fingers crossed it will be available for everyone soon. Meanwhile, keep to the rules and stay safe.
