New vaccines needed for new Variants?


A double mutant variant called N-440k is creating havoc in Andhra Pradesh. There is a talk that the Old vaccines are not that effective for this new mutation.

The Scientific advisor for the Indian Government has warned that there will be a third wave of Corona with new mutants. The new variant has reached Telangana from the state of Andhra Pradesh.

The new mutant is spreading very fast and it is attacking three people at a time according to the latest reports. Cases are rising, in Kerala, Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Andhra and also Telangana.

Kerala Government has announced a full lockdown. This is from May 8 to 16. New vaccines have to come to stop the new variants the scientists opined.

Today around 42000 cases were reported in Kerala. So there was an urgent need for a full lockdown. The Oxygen supplies have to be improved in all the states.

Vaccination is not going on in a proper manner across the country. There is no proper supply of vaccines to the centres.
