Vaccine Breakthrough

News overnight of a breakthrough in the hunt for a C19 vaccine with Pfizer reporting strong results at an interim analysis.

This is obviously great news for the entire planet if it turns out to be true, however, I have some concerns that Pfizer got to have a look at the interim data. Surely it is only the Independent Data Monitoring Committee who looks at interim data, not Pfizer.

To be clear, it does not appear that the trial has been halted due to “overwhelming efficacy”, so there may be more to play out here.
