The USA has also accepted the iron of India’s indigenous vaccine covalent vaccine, which has emerged as an important weapon in the war against Corona. The White House’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fassi, has stated that covaxine is capable of neutralizing the B1.617 variant of the corona virus.
This variant is also known as Indian strain and double mutants. Fasi’s trust in covaxine is also important because according to a report by the World Health Organization, this variant found in India has been seen in at least 17 countries.
This variant is believed to play a major role in the very rapid spread of the second wave of infection in India. The latest data currently show that covaxine is effective in neutralizing the 617 variants (double mutants) of the corona. Therefore, vaccination is the most important weapon against the difficult situation that we are seeing in India.
The New York Times stated in its report that covaxine trains the immune system to produce antibodies against the corona virus. These antibodies target the spike proteins of the virus. The covoxine has been developed by Bharat Biotech of Hyderabad in collaboration with the National Institute of Virology and the Indian Council of Medical Research. It has been found to be 78 percent effective against the virus in tests.
Covaxine is effective up to 78 percent
On January 3, the emergency use of covaxine, developed by Bharat Biotech in partnership with the National Institute of Virology and the Indian Council of Medical Research, was approved. The test results later revealed that the vaccine was effective up to 78 percent.
America with India in this difficult time
Covid Response Senior Advisor at the White House, Dr. Andy Slavitt, said that a team from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention is reaching India for help. He said that we are ensuring the availability of raw materials for manufacturing more vaccines in India, which will be very helpful. Assuring India’s cooperation in difficult times, he said that the US is working towards supplying many essential goods to India.
