Recently, Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca/University of Oxford announced with great fanfare that their candidate vaccines that target the Spike protein of SARS-COV-2 were ~92%, ~94% and 90% effective respectively. At around the same time, the N.F. Gamaleya Center For Epidemiology and Microbiology of the Russian Ministry of Health also announced that their candidate vaccine termed "Sputnik V" was also over 90 % effective. The response to the announcements of  Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca/University of Oxford by the scientific community, so-called pundits and experts, including the influential Nature and Science Magazines, Government Officials and the Western Media at large was generally and resoundingly favorable and extremely enthusiastic while the response to announcement of the N.F. Gamaleya Center For Epidemiology and Microbiology of the Russian Ministry of Health was extremely reticent and derisive. The responses to the announcements of the above entities are not understandable because none provided any scientific data to support their un-scientific conclusions. It is not clear how the values of over 90% effectiveness of the candidate vaccines were arrive at. It is submitted that the announcements of Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/University of Oxford and N.F. Gamaleya Center constitute Dishonest Scientific Reporting that are calculated to mislead. The limited results reported by Astra/Zeneca/University of Oxford also constitute Data Falsification
