The effectiveness of the Covid vaccine against new species
Covid-19 cases are “rising exponentially” across England driven by younger and mostly unvaccinated age groups, according to scientists tracking the epidemic. A study commissioned by the UK Government found that infections have increased 50% between May 3 and June 7, coinciding with the rise of the Delta coronavirus variant which was first detected in India and is now dominant in the UK.
According to statistics, 90% of patients have Delta coronavirus variant. Stephen Riley, a professor of infectious disease dynamics at Imperial and one of the study’s authors, said: “Prevalence is increasing exponentially and it is being driven by younger ages. It appears to be doubling every 11 days. “Clearly that is bad news … but the key thing to point out here is that we are in a very different part of the epidemic in the UK and it is very difficult to predict the duration of the exponential phase”
The scientists said their findings from the React study suggested that imminent expansion of the Covid vaccine programme to people aged 18 and above “should help substantially to reduce the overall growth of the epidemic”.
Boris Johnson promises About Covid vaccine
According to research, the transmission rate in the age group of 5 to 12 years and 18 to 24 years is five times higher than people over 65 years who have been vaccinated. The UK government has promised to vaccinate all adult citizens by the end of July. However, fluctuations due to the corona situation and the delta outbreak led to the withdrawal from the implementation of the fourth phase of the corona restriction on June 21.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, has announced that the fourth phase of the lifting of the Covid ban will be delayed by four weeks. “We announced a few months ago that the roadmap for quarantine is cautious and irreversible,” Boris Johnson told reporters. But this trend, according to him, has increased the number of patients and hospitalized patients during this period.
“We have to live with Covid”, Boris Johnson
“We must learn to live with the virus,” he said, adding that the corona could not be simply eradicated. He described receiving the Covid vaccine as an effective way to fight the virus, adding that vaccination significantly reduces the rate of transmission, while receiving two doses of the Covid vaccine provides a high level of immunity against the severity of the disease or death.
Johnson said a large number of young British citizens had not yet been vaccinated and that the delta species had spread faster than the government had predicted for the third wave of the Covid outbreak, adding that the fourth (final) phase of lifting the corona restrictions had been postponed from June 21 to July 19.
Record-breaking Covid artery disease in the UK
UK health officials announced last Thursday that 11,007 new patients with Covid 19 had been identified in the past 24 hours. This is the first time since the end of February that the daily death toll in the UK has exceeded 10,000. The reason for this increase is the prevalence of the new variant of Covid. At 127.945 feet, UK has the highest number of Covid casualties among European countries.
The situation improved during the spring due to long-term quarantine and a large-scale vaccination campaign. But because of the deteriorating situation in recent days, British citizens are once again worried. Within a week, 33.7% has been added to the number of new cases. As a result, the government delayed the complete lifting of health restrictions for four weeks. The number of new cases of Covid-19 is on the rise across the UK, especially among those who have not yet been vaccinated, according to a study released by the Royal College of Physicians.
The data show that the statistics have doubled every 11 days. Professor Adam Finn, who advises on the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), told the BBC that the country is now in a firm race between the vaccines and the Delta variant – first identified in India. “It’s going up, perhaps we can be a little bit optimistic it’s not going up any faster, but nevertheless it’s going up, so this third wave is definitely underway,” said Prof. Finn. “We can conclude that the race is firmly on between the vaccine programme, particularly getting older people’s second doses done, and the Delta variant third wave,” he said.
The British protested against the continuation of the restrictions
The continuation of the restrictions has provoked protests from the UK. Hundreds of British citizens gathered in front of the Prime Minister’s Office to protest the Corona’s restrictions. Most of the protesters carried masks and chanted slogans against the continuation of the Covid restrictions over the past five months.
UK is facing a deadly third wave of the corona, of which only half the population has been vaccinated so far. According to the latest statistics, 41 million 551 thousand 201 people have been vaccinated so far, of which 29 million 792 thousand 658 people have received both doses of the Covid vaccine.
The supply of Covid vaccine is not stable
With the unbridled rise of the Delta coronavirus variant in the UK and the approach of the final stage of lifting the Covid restrictions in the country, a fierce competition has been formed between speeding up the implementation of the vaccination plan and the spread of the third corona wave in the country. Most of these people are young who are at the bottom of the Corona vaccination list, according to the Department of Health and Social Care, and have not yet been vaccinated. Corona vaccination in the UK began with different age groups and health status, respectively.
But a significant number of young Britons have not yet been vaccinated against Covid. Experts believe that this situation has intensified the spread of the Indian corona virus, which has a higher rate of transmission than other types of corona.
Measures to speed up Covid vaccine in the UK
The Department of Health and Social Care has opened several vaccination centers across the country to speed up vaccination centers to speed up the vaccination of young people. These salons, along with health centers in the UK, change their use over the weekend and help with the Covid vaccine process. Visitors to these centers do not need to make an appointment; But they generally face long queues.
Experts believe that UK is facing the third deadly wave of the Covid, of which only half of the population has been vaccinated so far. The number of people infected with the virus is on the rise, and the Boris Johnson government is confused by the growing number of people infected with the disease and does not know what policy to adopt in order to overcome the new wave of the virus.
