New COVID strains not 'more infectious': AIIMS director1 min read . Updated: 24 Feb 2021, 08:52 PM IST
- It doesn't seem that the strains are more infectious or vaccine will not work but we need to study it more aggressively and look at it more closely, Guleria said
Randeep Guleria, director of The All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), said that vaccines will be able to control the spread of coronavirus and lessen the mortality rate. "Currently we have vaccines with efficacy of 70 per cent, 80 per cent, 90 per cent so even if there is slight fall in efficacy they will still be effective in preventing the virus from further spreading," Guleria told in an interview to ANI.
