Dr Hinds: T&T excited but still cautious about COVID vaccine development


    Health officials in T&T are excited by what has been deemed the first effective coronavirus vaccine but will remain cautious.

    This is according to Epidemiologist Dr Avery Hinds following a report that a new vaccine can provide protection to more than 90% of people, based on preliminary information.

    However, he notes that several areas of concern still need to be ironed out.

    As such, Dr Hinds says local officials are maintaining the current level of caution and scientific rigor, before deciding what this vaccine means for T&T.
