The European Medicines Agency said on Thursday that two doses of the COVID vaccine appear to protect against the rapidly spreading delta variant of the coronavirus. The World Health Organization had warned that the variant first seen in India could spark a new wave of cases in Europe. In such a situation, now the information about the prevention of two doses of the corona is pleasant. EMA's head of vaccine strategy, Marco Cavallari, said the Amsterdam-based watchdog was aware of concerns caused by the rapid spread of the delta variant. Right now it appears that the four EU-approved vaccines protect against all infections detected in Europe, including the delta version.
He said data emerging from real-world evidence is showing that two doses of the vaccine are protective against the delta variant. The four vaccines currently approved for use in the European Union are Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson.
Let us tell you that the havoc of the Delta variant is increasing in the world. It is spreading fast. The World Health Organization (WHO) said that this variant has reached 96 countries. Also warned that in the coming months this highly contagious form of corona will dominate the world.
According to the news agency Reuters, the WHO has warned about the third wave of corona in Europe. WHO's head of Europe affairs, Hans Kluge, said that the ten-week decline in new cases of corona in Europe is about to end. Another wave cannot be avoided if people are not disciplined.
