Brazil was among the countries most affected by the corona virus, where 463,000 people have died due to it. Due to the lack of vaccine in the country, the pace of vaccination is also slow.
Coronavirus Experiment in Brazil’s Serrana Shows Good Result: Such news has come from a city in Brazil, which has raised hope of ending the Coronavirus epidemic. After this experiment, there has been a 95 percent reduction in deaths from COVID-19 in the city of Serrana, located in the southeast of the country. Along with this, there has also been a big reduction in new cases. The reason behind this is the fast-paced vaccination campaign. Under an experiment here, almost every adult in the city has got the vaccine. Serana has a population of 45 thousand. The CoronaVac vaccine developed in China is being installed here.
The experiment team says that the spread of the virus has reduced significantly, due to which even those who have not been vaccinated have been saved from getting infected. The results of the experiment showed that if 75 percent of the people were fully vaccinated, the epidemic could be controlled (Coronavirus Experiment in Brazil). Brazil was among the countries most affected by the corona virus, where 463,000 people have died due to it. Due to the lack of vaccine in the country, the pace of vaccination is also slow. The daily cases and death figures are above average due to the relaxation of other measures of Corona.
Butanton Institute experimented
Serana is located in the country’s Sao Paulo state, where the Butantán Institute conducted this experiment in February and April. Which is producing the corona virus vaccine developed by the Chinese company Sinovac Biotech. To find out how long the virus will take to be controlled, the city was divided into four parts (Brazil Coronavirus Situation). The team said that 75 percent of the population of three out of four cities were fully vaccinated, that is, both doses of the vaccine were applied. These included people over the age of 18. After applying both doses of the vaccine to 95 percent of the adults, its results were seen.
Decline in death toll
The results showed that there has been a 95 per cent decline in deaths, 86 per cent reduction in hospitalization rates and 80 per cent reduction in symptomatic cases of COVID. Ricardo Palacius, research director of the Butantan Institute, said the target for the experiment was set at 75 percent. He said, ‘The most important thing has come to the fore in the result that we can control the epidemic (Covid in Brazil) without vaccinating the entire population.’ He said that the rate of infection of children and teenagers who did not get the vaccine has also come down. The vaccine has also been found effective on the COVID variant. Let us tell you that Brazil is the third most affected country in the world by the corona virus.
