Do coronavirus vaccines prevent transmission of the virus?

  Do coronavirus vaccines prevent transmission of the virus? Studies suggest vaccinated people are less likely to pass it on to others. Plus, ‘COVID toes’ and a pill to treat COVID.It is an important question and one around which public health policies have been built. The United Kingdom, for example, has mandated COVID vaccines for all social care staff to protect the vulnerable people they care for; they are set to do the same for NHS staff. And in Italy, from October 15, workers will have to show proof of vaccination, a negative COVID test or recovery from a recent infection to their employer. Anyone unable to do this risks being suspended from work without pay. Other countries are adopting similar measures.

The number of daily cases and deaths related to the coronavirus is relatively down in Iran, which recorded a record of cases in August, struggling to stem a fifth wave of infections.

The country has counted more than 5.85 million cases of which approximately 125,000 dead since the beginning of the pandemic, according to the latest figures of the Ministry of Health. The very admission of several Iranian officials, these statistics underestimate the number of deaths and cases largely.
