Pfizer and its partner, the German company, BioNTech, announced preliminary

Pfizer and its partner, the German company, BioNTech, announced preliminary results that suggested their vaccine was more than 90 percent effective.

They need enough cases of COVID-19 to happen to reach a certain statistical confidence. They were not there last week but are now. In normal times last week's announcement would not have been public.

Since they are both mRNA technology it is not surprising they are narrowing in on the same efficiency. I dont' think they need to out do eachother, they have already sold probably hundreds of millions of doses. Moderna's higher temperature stability is probably a larger selling point than the efficiency.
