In an article about Covid vaccines, the answer to a question about efficacy claimed that if a vaccine had 93% efficacy in clinical trials, that meant 7% of people who received the jab still got the disease. This was an incorrect interpretation of the figures. It actually means that the risk of contracting the disease is reduced by 93% in people who get the vaccine (“I’ve had my vaccine – how well will it protect me, and for how long?”, 28 February, page 8).

An article about Oprah Winfrey said she was partnering with the Duchess of Sussex on a mental health series for Apple TV. In fact, the partnership is with Meghan’s husband, Prince Harry (“The Oprah effect: star who made her interviews public therapy”, 28 February, page 32).

An article about Roy Hodgson referred to the Sebastian Faulks novel A Week in September. The book is called A Week in December (“Will the dotage of Roy Hodgson, English football’s tourist, be haunted by regret?”, 28 February, page 16, Sport).

Near-homophone corner: “Climate change is an issue the Murdoch press has disassembled on for years” (“Q&A: Michael E Mann”, 28 February, page 22, the New Review).
