Covid vaccine rush could make pandemic worse, say scientists

5. Central Idea:

The central like in many passages is very clearly mentioned in this article as well and I quote

“Deployment of a weakly effective vaccine could actually worsen the Covid-19 pandemic if authorities wrongly assume it causes a substantial reduction in risk, or if vaccinated individuals wrongly believe they are immune, hence reducing implementation of, or compliance with, other Covid-19 control measures,” they said.

Remember central idea is like a working principle or fundamental thought on which the whole discussion is based on and its usually mentioned directly in the article.

1. Type: Fact + Inference based
2. Reading Time: 5-6 mins
3. Tone: Persuasive 
4. Purpose:

To persuade the readers and other government organisations to focus more on producing a vaccine with higher efficacy and effectiveness rather than unethically expediting the whole scientific and regulatory process in the name of nationalist and capitalist agendas.

6. Points of confusion :

1. Nowhere in the passage its mentioned that the proposed thought of expedited regulation of vaccine approval has already happened or its definitely going to happen. Its just an opinion of some scientists not supported by any strong facts.

2. The biggest worry of scientists is not the damage due to an initial ineffective medicine but "Even if it protected only a minority of the population, it would be regarded as the standard by which later vaccines would be measured. That could even lead to inferior vaccines being approved, because they would not have to show that they were any better".

3. Suggestions on a better way to expedite the process of vaccine production are not provided by the author himself but taken from scientist opinions from journals like lancet.

7. Conclusion

Good results on safety and effectiveness do not guarantee there will be no long-term problems but The trial costs will be a fraction of the societal costs of Covid-19, and this global collaboration could rebut detrimental vaccine nihilism and vaccine nationalism,”

Where did Trumpism come from?

4. Purpose:

To explain the rising popularity of right wing populism expanding throughout American and European societies by leveraging arguments from a newly released book called " Let Them Eat Tweets: How the Right Rules in an Age of Extreme Inequality"
