New Strain of Coronavirus: COVID-19 vaccine developed by Oxford and AstraZeneca will also be effective on new strains of corona virus.
New Strain of Coronavirus: Some other countries, including the UK, these days due to the arrival of new types of corona virus, there is a concern. It is believed that this virus is 70 percent more effective than before. In such a situation, questions are beginning to be raised whether the vaccine that is being developed for the treatment of Corona virus, will be effective in the treatment of this new virus. In the same sequence, the UK media is claiming that the covid-19 vaccine developed by Oxford University and the Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine will also be effective on new strains of the rapidly spreading corona virus.
Let us know that there is an agreement of Oxford’s vaccine with the Serum Institute of India (SII) of India and it is going to be approved in Britain soon. After this, the work of vaccination will accelerate. India will also get the benefit of agreement with the serum.
Preparation for vaccination
A senior government official was quoted as saying in ‘The Sunday Times’ that the first priority was vaccination of 1.2 to 1.5 crore people, who would need to be hospitalized after being infected with the corona virus. The approval of AstraZeneca vaccine means that we will be able to vaccinate these people till the spring season.
Sources warn that the new strain of corona virus has outpaced the old corona virus and is causing havoc in Britain. It is also being said that the new figures are not good, but the Drug and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) will approve Oxford’s use of the vaccine by the middle of this week.
The vaccine will also protect against new types of viruses!
AstraZeneca’s Chief Executive Officer Pascal Soriott also says the vaccine data shows that it is as effective as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, which have been approved to be effective up to 95 percent. This vaccine is 100 percent effective in preventing the condition of health and getting hospitalized. He said that the vaccine should also be ‘effective’ against the new form of highly infectious virus. Let us tell you that due to this new type of virus, full lockdown has been imposed again in whole of England.
According to a senior official, in the first trials of the Oxford vaccine, this overall was found to be 62 percent effective, although one group was mistakenly given half the dose. We think we have found out the formula of victory. He said that I cannot give more information than this now, we will make some important things public.
Easy to store too
The UK government has always believed that the Oxford vaccine would change the fight against COVID-19, as it could be easily stored in a fridge. Its cost is also equal to 2 pounds. At the same time, Pfizer’s vaccine has to be kept at a temperature of minus 70 ° C and it is worth 15 pounds.
