The Omicron covid variant is terrifying the world these days. Vaccine manufactures are promising to make their boosters appropriate for this new variant as well, as you will see in the latest news below.
Omicron covid variant is terrifying the world
The new variant is called Omicron. Experts are currently investigating whether mutations are making the variant more infectious or evading immune response.
The Wall Street Journal just noted that the fast-spreading Omicron coronavirus variant was recently identified in South Africa.
It seems that this has virologists and health authorities on edge because of its many mutations, but much about its infectiousness and virulence remains unknown.
“Scientists said some of the roughly 50 mutations on the new variant, called B.1.1.529, could potentially render it more transmissible or reduce vaccine effectiveness.”
Reuters notes that BioNTech said on Friday it expects more data on a worrying new coronavirus variant detected in South Africa within two weeks to help determine whether its vaccine produced with partner Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) would have to be reworked.
