Wilmington:

US President-elect Joe Biden said Monday there was “reason to hope” that a Covid-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech would be 90 percent effective – but warned of a long battle still to come.

“I congratulate the brilliant women and men who helped create this breakthrough and give us cause for hope,” Biden said in a statement, adding that he was given advance notice of the announcement on Sunday evening.

“At the same time, it’s important to understand that the end of the fight against COVID-19 is months away,” he added, emphasizing the continued importance of wearing masks for the foreseeable future.
