“Create Hope” Initiative to Save Lives

Create Hope

In light of the Coronavirus that has struck us all pretty hard, many pioneers and ordinary people have been coming up with cool and creative ideas to keep us entertained. Not just that, but many people have been contributing to those who are greatly in need of help in desperate rough times like now.

Many Egyptian initiatives as well as many iconic people have donated millions in hopes of keeping people safe from the COVID-19 pandemic because unfortunately there are those who are incapable of keeping themselves or their family safe from what is going on. Besides, we need all the help we can get!

Which is why, we found it quite interesting that Egyptian well known singer, Malak el Husseiny, is collaborating with stylist Yasmine Kenawi to team up with “Radical Contemporary” to commence launching a completely new initiative that will help allow the whole creative industry to help the less fortunate in Egypt during the war against this dangerous pandemic.

What’s new and different about this initiative is that rather than sending these donations towards medical institutions just like any other, they have decided to support the underprivileged families who are suffering as well as help them to avoid the contagion as best and safely as possible.

This new initiative is titled “Create Hope”. With the help of “Misr el Kheir” ,the whole team is working on creating a realistic timeline as well as set up a donation page where all can contribute to. Their goal is to reach 25,000 Egyptian pounds as well as to provide at least 30 families with the hygienic products and food that will help them live better. This is crucially needed, especially since the Holy Month of Ramadan is to commence tomorrow.

So far, the group managed to gather have the donation amount over the time span of only two days, what a success! They may increase the number of donations needed if they keep progressing in this manner.

“We saw that people were hoarding products and that makes it more difficult for a lot of people to access supplies they need,” said the founder of Radical, Nour Hassan.

AstraZeneca announced today the effectiveness of its Covid-19 vaccine and it turned out to be around 90% effective with no serious side effects!

According to data from the late-stage trials in Britain and Brazil, the vaccine, which is developed by Oxford University, has shown 90% effectiveness after being administered as a a half dose followed by a full dose at least one month apart.

“This vaccine’s efficacy and safety confirm that it will be highly effective against COVID-19 and will have an immediate impact on this public health emergency,” Pascal Soriot, Astra’s chief executive, said in a statement.

British Prime minister Boris Johnson said it was “incredibly exciting news the Oxford vaccine has proved so effective in trials.”

The next step now is for the company to start preparing regulatory submission of the data to authorities across the world that have a framework in place for conditional or early approval.

It will also seek an emergency use listing from the World Health Organization (WHO) to speed up availability in countries with low income. In parallel, the full analysis of the interim results is being submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

With both Oxford’s and Pfizer’s vaccines, we can be hopeful that the new year will come bearing good news!

Yet another promising news for a Covid-19 vaccine has been announced! Moderna said today that its vaccine has shown 94.5% effectiveness in preventing the virus, according to an analysis of its clinical trial.

The biotech company made the announcement earlier today, giving us a dash of hope amidst this coronavirus scare.

The news follows the announcement made by Pfizer and BioNTech, who said their vaccine was more than 90% effective.

The results come from interim analyses of intensive clinical studies. The clinical trials of Moderna saw the participation of 30,000 volunteers. Half got two doses of the vaccine 28 days apart, half got two shots of a placebo on the same schedule.

“This positive interim analysis from our Phase 3 study has given us the first clinical validation that our vaccine can prevent COVID-19 disease, including severe disease,” said Stéphane Bancel, chief executive officer of Moderna, in a statement.

Both companies used the same technology in making the vaccines, which is a tech based on a molecule known as mRNA, or messenger RNA. That molecule contains genetic instructions for making proteins inside cells.

We hope that by the end of this year, we can rest assured that a vaccine can soon end this pandemic.
