Results of a study announced by the British “Sky News” network on Thursday night, Friday, clumsy “OmigronIt can cause a large number of infections, even in people with high levels of antibodies.
According to researchers at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases In South Africa Questions such as “The potential of mutants to avoid the immunity provided by current vaccines and the potential effects of reduced immunity during infection, especially during severe infection or death” still need to be answered.
The researchers studied about 2.8 million cases of “Govit-19” Corona virus A South AfricaSince March 2020, there have been more than 35,000 cases in which its owners have been infected with the virus more than once.
As a result of the first strain that emerged from the Chinese city of Wuhan, the risk of a second outbreak of the disease was lower in the “delta” and “beta” mutants compared to the first outbreaks in March 2020. , The cradle of infections.
And the most important thing, according to the researchers, is the risk of a second infection with a mutant. “Omigron2.4 times larger than the first wave.
This study was published in medRxiv, which publishes scientific studies that have not yet been published in scientific journals and has not been reviewed by other researchers.
Researchers also say that cats need to be included in any precautionary measures against the virus. Capable of attacking those who have previously recovered from the disease.
