Boris Johnson said that we believe that the B1.617.2 Variant is more contagious than the previous variant. This means that it spreads easily from one person to another.
Vaccines to protect against Corona are ‘definitely less effective’ at preventing the spread of B1.617.2 Variant. A prominent scientist, part of the UK Vaccination Program, gave information about this on Saturday. Professor Anthony Harden of the University of Oxford, who is the vice president of the JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation), said that it was necessary to relax lockdown in England with ‘extreme caution’ as it is unclear whether B1.617.2 How much more contagious is the variant.
He said that although there is no evidence that the severity of the disease has increased or the vaccine is ineffective on the new variant of Corona. Vaccines may be less effective against mild illness, but we do not think they are less effective against serious illness.
No evidence of vaccine neutralization
Regarding the next phase of loosening the lockdown in England, Professor Harden said that we do not know how much more contagious it is yet. The evidence so far claims that no fact has been found to increase the severity of the disease or neutralize the vaccine on it, so we are doing the right thing based on the existing evidence. Everything is being done under review.
Professor Harden’s remarks come after the Downing Street press conference of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday evening. Boris Johnson said that we believe that the B1.617.2 variant is more contagious than the previous variant. This means that it spreads easily from one person to another.
Tough decisions can be taken in the coming times
He said that I have been told that if this variant is only marginally more contagious then we can continue our work as per the plan but if it is more contagious then some tough decisions may have to be taken. We will know more about this in the coming times. During this time, he indicated that the date of removal of all the restrictions of lockdown can also be changed in the coming time on 21 June.
