Corona: Delta variant raises concern, govt to reduce gap of two doses of covishield!
The Central Government is once again considering reducing the gap between two doses of Oxford-Astrazeneca's corona vaccine covishield being administered in the country.
Delta Variant, which wreaked havoc in the second wave of the corona epidemic, has now taken a new shape. Corona's new variant Delta Plus has once again raised people's concerns. The Central Government is once again considering reducing the gap between two doses of Oxford-Astrazeneca corona vaccine covishield being administered in the country.
Government experts on covid vaccine strategy have also held several rounds of meetings to give vaccines at short intervals to those who are most at risk. Recently, there has been evidence that corona delta variants are leading to an increased risk of hospitalization and rapid spread of infection. Reducing the gap between two doses of the corona vaccine covishield can protect people from being exposed to this variant.
The gap between the two doses was extended on May 13 Earlier, on May 13, the Central Government had increased the gap between two doses of covishield to 12 to 16 weeks. Uk data was cited, but three days later, Britain itself reduced the gap from 12 to 8 weeks. Sensing the danger of delta variants, the gap was reduced for people aged 50 or over. The corona delta variant is spreading again in Britain.
Britain reduces the gap between two doses for 40+
According to UK data released on Monday, those who have taken both doses of the Oxford-Astrazeneca vaccine did not have to be admitted to hospitals. However, those who have taken only one dose were more likely to be admitted to the hospital. On Monday itself, the gap between vaccines in Britain was reduced to those above 40 years of age.
