Pfizer’s Vaccine Is Also Effective On New Variants Of Corona

Read Time:1 Minute, 46 Second

Good news has come against the new strain of coronavirus. New research has revealed that Pfizer’s Corona vaccine is also effective on new variants of the Corona found in Britain and South Africa. That is, this vaccine is also effective in stopping these new variants.

Because of these variants, there was a worldwide concern. Both variants had a common mutation, named N501Y. This change occurred in the spike protein at the place that covers the virus in the body. It is because of this change that infection is increasing rapidly. Most of the new cases in Britain were due to new strains. Earlier in Britain, scientists had feared that the vaccine might fail on the South African strain. Due to this, the process of isolating the new strain and testing the vaccine on it was also accelerated.

Actually, if the virus goes from one person to another body, it changes a little bit. Scientists have tracked these changes by Coronavirus and tried to find out how many and what kind of changes have occurred in the virus since being traced to China a year ago. British scientists claim that the number of corona infections has increased rapidly due to new strains found in the UK. Most of the new cases reported in Britain are from this strain.

How did the new study happen?

  • Pfizer teamed with researchers from the Medical Branch of the University of Texas. This team was given the responsibility to check whether the change in the virus has affected the efficacy of the vaccine.
  • During the study, blood samples were taken from 20 people who were given the Pfizer vaccine. Using the antibodies made in the body of these people, the laboratory tested the efficacy of the vaccine against the new strain of the virus. In this, it has been confirmed that the vaccine is also effective on strains.
  • It is posted on an online site of study researchers. At present, this study is primary. Experts have not reviewed it. This is considered an important aspect of medical research. Due to this, questions can also be raised in the study.
