Experts in infectious diseases of the World Health Organization (WHO) have said that new types of mutations may also be seen in the future, against which the effect of the vaccine (Covid Vaccine) may be less. However, even now the vaccine is being seen as the most effective weapon against Corona.
New Delhi. The Corona Vaccine currently in the world seems to be less effective against the new Delta variant. This has been said by the World Health Organization’s expert on infectious diseases. The expert has also said that new types of mutations may also be seen in the future, against which the effect of the vaccine may be less. However, even now the vaccine is being seen as the most effective weapon against Corona.
The Delta or B.1.617.2 variant is believed to be responsible for the second horrific wave of corona in India. Now according to the data, the outbreak of the third wave in the United Kingdom is also increasing due to this variant. Now after the mutation in the delta variant, a delta plus variant is formed. Now the Delta Plus variant has also started spreading in India. At present, many cases of delta plus variant of Kovid-19 have been reported in Maharashtra and Kerala. Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said on Monday that 21 cases of the delta variant have been reported in the state. At the same time, at least three cases of Delta Plus variant were reported in Kerala too.
How effective is Covishield and Covaccine on the delta variant?
Earlier, scientists of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) had informed in their preliminary reports of their research that Kovidshield and Covaxin are able to produce only a few antibodies against the B.1.617.2 variant of the corona virus, but this vaccine Effective on other variants of Corona.Research continues on the effectiveness of the vaccine against the delta variant
Several laboratory tests show that the delta variant has stronger resistance to vaccines than other variants. A British study published in the Lancet medical journal in early June found neutralizing antibodies made in vaccinated people exposed to delta, alpha (first identified in the UK) and beta (first identified in South Africa) variants. Level was checked. Regarding new forms of corona virus, scientists are constantly researching how effective the vaccine is against them. At present, the cause of concern around the world is the Delta variant.
