Covaxin can work against mutated coronavirus - Bharat Biotech
Krishna Ella, the Chairman and Managing Director of Indian Pharma company, said a vaccine, 'Covaxin,' can offer protection against coronavirus mutations. The news has brought much relief at a time when the new strain of the virus started spreading from the UK to other countries.
He said the changes in the variants are not sufficient to make the vaccine ineffective. Krishna Ella has made these comments during a virtual program organized by the CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology. He said the virus mutates on its own and added that it could infect more people as it is a non-living organism.
