But only a few days before the Helsinki Times reported “the pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and BioNTech on Saturday issued a statement stating that they are not sure whether their vaccines would be able to help in the treatment of the new Covid-19 variant ‘Omicron’ … The pharmaceutical companies underscored that they started working on making their vaccine adaptable to new possible variants months ago.”
