The study included 3,235 health workers in India, 85 of whom were infected with the mutated Corona virus, and all of them received AstraZeneca vaccines, and the result was the elimination of the virus by a large percentage; Where only two people out of 85 were admitted to hospital for treatment, after continuing to be infected with the virus.
Anupam Sibal, medical director of the study, told The Telegraph: “Our study showed that 97.38% of those who were vaccinated were protected from infection, and that the required hospitalization rate was only 0.06%.”
As for Sir John Bell, Professor of Medicine at Oxford University; Where another study is being conducted; The data so far, he said, is "fairly promising".
He told Radio Times: "It seems that the Indian mutant will be subject to a vaccine like the others."
The British Minister of Health, Matt Hancock, confirmed the good news: "There is very early new data from the University of Oxford ... it gives us some confidence that vaccines work against the Indian mutant, but it remains more likely to spread."
