No news on Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine is good news — and bad news
Pfizer and BioNTech are under a white-hot spotlight because their vaccine, by design, is likely to be the first to have any efficacy data.
Pfizer revealed that researchers have not yet conducted an analysis of the efficacy of the vaccine it is developing against Covid-19. The announcement is both good news and bad news.

No news on $PFE #Covid19 vaccine is good news — and bad news
on this morning's freakout.
It may take longer than vaccine companies have projected to get a sense of whether/how well #Covid19 vaccines work. Pfizer, which expected to have interim results this week, told investors today their trial hasn't yet undergone its first interim analysis.
