Re: Covid-19: Researcher blows the whistle on data integrity issues in Pfizer’s vaccine trial

Dear Editor,

Thank you BMJ for your journalistic integrity in being prepared to rock the boat.

It concerns me that nearly a week after publishing this article, the follow-up from major western news outlets has been almost non-existent.

Surely, allegations of this magnitude warrant coverage by www.washingtonpost.com, www.wsj.com, www.nytimes.com or www.bbc.com?

Perhaps if The New England Journal of Medicine responds in some way, our faith in supposed champions of truth can be somewhat salvaged.
