European regulator said – both doses of corona vaccine are effective against ‘delta variant’

The European regulator said that both doses of the corona vaccine protect against the rapidly spreading delta variant of Kovid-19 in the world. This encouraging assessment comes after the World Health Organization (WHO) had earlier warned that the variant, first seen in India, could trigger a new wave of cases in Europe.

The European Medicines Agency’s head of vaccine strategy, Marco Cavaleri, said the Amsterdam-based monitor was “aware of concerns caused by the rapid spread of delta variants.”

He said that it appears that the four vaccines currently approved by the European Union protect against all strains of corona in Europe, including the delta variant. He added that “the data emerging from real-world evidence is showing that both doses of the vaccine are protective against the delta variant.” It is worth noting that the four vaccines that are currently allowed in the European Union are – Pfizer/BioNtech, Moderna, Astragenica and Johnson & Johnson.

WHO warns about Delta

Earlier, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said that according to an estimate, cases of the delta form of Kovid-19 have now been reported in about 100 countries, with this it warned that this highly contagious form will be in the coming months. Corona virus will become the most dominant form in the whole world.

The WHO, sharing the updated data in the “Kovid-19 Weekly Epidemiological Update”, said that as of 29 June 2021, “delta-type cases have been reported in 96 countries and the actual figure is likely to be higher because the virus is not being detected”. The genome chain capabilities for this are also limited. Many of these countries have said that due to the delta nature, cases of infection are increasing in them and the number of hospitalized patients is also increasing.

In view of the delta form being highly contagious, the WHO has warned that this form is expected to dominate more than other forms and become the most dominant form in the coming months. The WHO said that the steps taken today to fight the corona virus are also effective against other worrying forms of the virus, including Delta.
