The new Corona virus (Covid-19 New Strain) has also been detected in South Africa after Britain. Since then, questions have started to arise whether the corona vaccine being produced in the world is effective on this new corona virus or not. Now Pfizer-BioNotech has answered these questions. Pfizer-BioNotech on Thursday said the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is also effective against the new COVID-19 virus found in Britain and South Africa.
The statement of the two companies stated that there is a very small difference between the original infection of COVID-19 and the newly detected infections. In such a situation, our vaccine is also effective on this new virus. It is unlikely that our vaccine will not be effective on the new type of virus. The company has said that there is no need for a new vaccine against the new form of COVID-19. Pfizer-BioNotech has said that it will soon provide evidence that their vaccines are effective on this new corona virus.
It has been said by Pfizer-BioNotech that they continue to monitor their vaccine. The effects of the vaccine on new forms of the virus are also being monitored. Pfizer-BioNotech believes that if a new vaccine is also needed, we can now develop the vaccine as soon as possible.
Pfizer-BioNtech’s COVID-19 vaccine was first approved by the US. As early as 2021, the WHO also approved the emergency use of Pfizer-BioNtech’s Corona vaccine. Europe is also using the Pfizer-BioNotech vaccine.
