NEW YORK: Concerned about the spread of Corona’s new variant Omecron, the UN Health Agency panel said laboratory data on the effects of the current variant of the existing vaccine against the new variant are undoubtedly useful, but it is not yet clear whether for serious patients. How effective is it? The statement came after the World Health Organization (WHO) assured that currently available vaccines can protect severely infected people from the corona virus for six months or more.
Dr Kate O’Brien, director of the WHO’s Department of Immunization, Vaccines and Biological Sciences, said: He said that due to the vaccine available at that time and its efficacy, the overall immunity has been partially improved but it is not proving to be effective at the level where the hypothesis of public immunity can be achieved.
UN News quoted Dr O’Brien as saying, “This is usually due to a lack of at least one vaccine, which is why vaccination campaigns are succeeding in developed countries but saving lives in poor countries.” He said that the coronavirus vaccine could increase the risk of epidemic.
The WHO official said the alleged breakout infection among people who have already been vaccinated amid the growing range of vaccines is not surprising. “This does not mean that the vaccine is not working,” he said. “People who have not been vaccinated are most at risk,” said Dr. O’Brien, referring to Omicron. About 80 to 90 percent of those infected with the corona virus are infected.
