A strict lockdown has been imposed once again in Britain battling Corona’s new strain. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a full lockdown from January 4, which is expected to continue until mid-February. Meanwhile, the UK has also approved a mix and match scheme for corona vaccination, which has raised concerns from experts. In fact, in Britain, it is being said that if a second dose of a vaccine is not available or it is not known to which company the patient is vaccinated, then in such circumstances an alternative vaccine will be given.
The UK has also made a sudden change in its vaccination plan amid a rapidly spreading corona infection. Under this, the vaccine has been allowed to be used in a mix and match manner. The new UK vaccination policy states that if a patient does not have a second dose of the vaccine or is not aware of the producer of the first shot, a second vaccine will be offered as an alternative.
The important thing is that this UK scheme completely violates the guidelines issued by the US pharmaceutical companies. In the guidelines issued by the US, it has been clearly said that no vaccine of Corona can be interchanged. No vaccine has yet been tested in a mix and match manner. In such a situation its effect cannot be assessed. In this case, both doses of the same vaccine should be applied. Do not experiment with them.
Significantly, a new strain of Corona was revealed in the UK last month, which is 70 percent more infectious than the old strain. However, the new strain is said to be less deadly than before. In view of this, in view of increasing cases of corona infection and death, strict lockdown was imposed in Britain once again from 4 January.
The cases of corona infection and death are increasing rapidly in the UK after a new strain was found. The situation has deteriorated so much that for the last six days more than 50 thousand corona infection cases have been reported in Britain. In such a situation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson also canceled his visit to India. It is believed that Britain is currently in the grip of the third wave of corona virus.
