The world’s exam with the covid-19 epidemic still continues. The epidemic, which has turned into a global crisis for the last two years, has once again caused alarm in Europe. While the increase in the number of cases continued rapidly , the ‘necessity of vaccination’ also came to the fore. A variant detected in South Africa also worries experts. The variant, designated “Omicron” by the World Health Organization , is frequently seen in cases in South Africa.

So why are experts worried? According to the data obtained, this new variant has an extremely high number of mutations . Therefore, experts cannot predict how successful current vaccines will be. The Omicron variant, detected in South Africa, can show resistance to existing vaccines thanks to its more than thirty-two mutations. A new statement came from BioNTech company on this subject.

If new vaccines are required, first doses can be administered within 100 days:

BioNTech, the most preferred vaccine in Europe, with Pfizer In the joint statement, he stated that they will collect more data about the new varyandoles in the next two weeks and that they will decide whether a change is needed on the existing vaccines based on these data. . The company stated that if a change in vaccines is required , they can design a new vaccine “within 6 weeks” and the first doses will be ready to be administered within 100 days .

One of the questions that comes to mind with this news is: What is the difference between this variant in South Africa and the Delta variant? Delta, is currently the most commonly detected variant in cases worldwide, as it is the most contagious variant of the virus . However, the new Omicron variant, in addition to its contagiousness, can easily adollar the immune system with its high number of mutations. We expect new statements on this subject from experts in the next two weeks.
