New Delhi, 02 April: The second wave of coronavirus infection has hit across the country.

On Friday, more than 80 thousand new cases of Covid-19 have been reported. The present situation has once again raised the concerns of the Central Government. With the pace of vaccination, the government is instructing people to be stable.

Among the cases, Dr Sanjay Rai, a vaccine expert from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), said that studies so far have shown that corona is less likely to recur. Antibodies last for 6-8 months in people who have developed novel coronavirus disease.

He urged people to get the Corona vaccine without any fear, so that even if they contract infection, its impact will be very less on them.

On the question that those who have already received Covid jab could be infected with virus, he said that no vaccine works 100 percent. Therefore, those who have been vaccinated should be fully cautious. Social distancing must be followed along with wearing masks.

Vaccine is also effective on double mutant virus

Dr Sanjay Rai said that as long as the corona virus continues from one body to another, its type will change. Double mutants can treat a virus as if the virus has changed its type twice. But according to the studies so far, the current vaccine is also effective on this virus. The effect of the vaccine on the South African type virus is currently under study.
