The researcher said – The most worrying is about E 484, the form of the virus, whose infection has been found in few people so far. Our research has indicated that the vaccine will be less effective on this form.
The observer said- Our data shows that protective antibodies were not found in people older than 80 years after three weeks of the first dose of the vaccine.
London: British scientists have warned that there are signs of a change in the highly contagious and more deadly form of the corona virus that came out in southern England last year. During the test, a change in the form of the virus found in the Cantt area of England has been detected and it is named ‘E484K’. Earlier changes in the forms of corona virus were also detected in South Africa and Brazil.
Existing vaccines will be less effective in preventing this
It is feared that this change in the form of the virus may penetrate the immune system and the existing vaccines will be less effective in protecting it. Research at Cambridge Institute of Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Diseases (CITIID), University of Cambridge has not yet been reviewed by analysts.
Changes in nature are a matter of concern – researchers
Ravi Gupta, a leading researcher at CITIID, said, “The most worrying is about the E484, a form of the virus, whose infection has been found in only a few people so far. Our research has indicated that the vaccine will be less effective on this form. “He said that there is a change in this pattern of the virus too, which is a matter of concern.” He said, “We have to prepare according to the next generation vaccine given the new form of the virus. We need to accelerate vaccine production to prevent infection. “
Dr. Dummy Collier, the chief supervisor of the research, said, “Our data suggests that protective antibodies were not found in people older than 80 three weeks after the first dose of the vaccine.
