The outbreak of the new variant of the Covid-19 virus is a new and troubling topic for discussion within the international community. This variant was discovered in South Africa during a laboratory experiment and has since been noticed in places like Brazil with the outbreak claiming an all-new level of casualties.
The Troubling News New Variant of Covid-19 Virus Is Causing
Unlike the first variant of the virus that put economic and trade activities around the world at a standstill, this new variant of the virus is a bigger pain in the neck for world leaders, pharmaceutical experts, and the entire world at large.
This is since many of the vaccines rolled out by major pharmaceutical industries have been reported to be somewhat ineffective in tackling this variant of the virus. As a matter of fact, the South African administrators had to halt the mass production of one of the vaccines aimed at curbing the adverse effects and spread of the virus.
Apart from the fact that the newer variant is more hostile in the body of the host, it is also very swift in spreading. The rate at which it spreads is a lot faster than the rate at which vaccines can be rolled out especially in places like the European region.
This has therefore led to criticism directed towards key administrators at the European nations' committee for their inability to deal with the situation.
Oxford Vaccine Is Better News than Imagined
Unlike many other vaccines used in vaccination in several European countries, the oxford vaccine has been reported to do better at dealing with the newer variant of the COVID-19 virus. This is even though a bit of its potency is also lost to the hostile reaction of the virus in the patient’s body.
However, there are two major concerns regarding the vaccine in question. First, it has been reported to act better in the body of hosts that are above 18. As a result, it is best suited for adults.
Furthermore, the rollout rate cannot be at par with the swift spread of the new variant which has led to more strict sanctions against the conduct of bilateral trade activities between nations in the world.
