For each variant a new vaccine will be needed. crazy. 2.2 billion people have been injected with experimental vaccines for which no one is responsible.

South Africa, coronavirus, covid-19, virology

A group of about 36 South African researchers has discovered a ‘new species of interest’ for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes COVID-19. Specialists fear that it may be more contagious and resistant to the antibodies that fight the coronavirus than its predecessors.

Countries around the world scrambled to vaccinate their populations against the coronavirus only to find that some mutations of the virus can effectively bypass antibody protection offered against its early strains.

A new strain that actually consists of multiple mutations of the virus and is known collectively as C 1.2, by researchers from the National Institute of Infectious Diseases in South Africa. It was first discovered in May 2021 and has since appeared in countries around the world, including China, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mauritius, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Portugal and Switzerland.

study published In the medical journal medRxiv.org it states that the new variant can “escape certain class 3 neutralizing antibodies,” whether obtained naturally or through vaccines. Moreover, C.1.2 is reported to have a mutation rate of approximately 41.8 per year, Almost double what other variables show.

The C.1.2 variant is said to have evolved from C.1, one of the strains that dominated the first wave of infection in South Africa, and was last detected in the country in January 2021. The new strain “has since been detected in most provinces of South Africa and in Seven countries span across Africa, Europe, Asia and Oceania.”

Scientists stress that more research on C.1.2 will be needed to determine if it could be Filter to compete with the delta variable, the highly contagious strain of SARS-CoV-2 that has wreaked havoc on vaccination campaigns in many countries.

Speaking to South African magazine New Frame, Deputy Director of the country’s Ministry of Health, Anpan Pillai, noted that health professionals hope the delta variant will not be the last and that “new variants will be developed to be a natural evolution”. from the virus.”
