Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist

US drug company Moderna (MRNA) has said that its Covid-19 vaccine is 94.5% effective based on clinical trial data. The company also said that the vaccine could be stored at standard refrigerator temperatures for up to one month or at -20 degrees Celsius for up to six months. This compares to Pfizer’s vaccine – announced last Monday - that lasts for 5 days at standard refrigerator temperature and needs to be stored at -70 degrees Celsius for longer time frames. This makes the storage and distribution of Moderna’s vaccine easier.

Global indices jumped higher on the news in what had been a quiet Monday morning session.
