The first data of a preliminary study carried out by scientists in South Africa indicate that the variant of the coronavirusomic could evade part of immunity.

The first data of a preliminary study carried out in South Africa indicate that the variant of the coronavirus omicron could evade part of our immunity. The experts detected an increase in the number of people who contracted Covid several times, according to BBC.
This analysis, even not being final yet, fits with concern about the mutations that the variant has.
The scientists analyzed about 36,000 suspicious reinfections in South Africa to seek changes in reinfection rates (two or more contagions of the same person) throughout the pandemic.
During the waves caused by beta and delta variants showed that there was no increase in reinfection risk. However, they are now detecting an increase in reinfections. They did not study each patient to demonstrate if it was because of omicron, but they say that the moment they are being given suggests that the variant is the driving force.Date Of Update: 07 December 2021, 03:07
