Scientists have discovered threatening vaccinated strains of coronavirus

Scientists from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in Delhi have discovered three mutated strains of coronavirus, including those who are vaccinated. This is reported by the News Bytes edition.

It is noted that doctors in India have identified 63 cases of infection in people who have recently been vaccinated. 36 of them received two doses of the vaccine and 27 received only one. The sick were vaccinated with the British drug Covishield and the Indian vaccine Covaxin. No concomitant diseases were found.

According to scientists, the vaccinated patients contracted the B.1.617 virus line, which includes three strains with multiple mutations. For the first time, strains of this line were registered in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is noted that aggressive mutations could cause a severe second wave of the pandemic in the country.

Earlier, a representative of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that right now India is short of vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 due to production delays and logistics problems. He called on the international community to share coronavirus vaccines with poorer countries.
