Scientists have begun testing innovative antibody drug treatments in Britain amid reports of two new strains of the global pandemic Corona virus. They hope that it can provide immediate protection against Covid-19. At the same time, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said that new strains of corona have been found in many countries of the world. There is also an atmosphere of fear in West Asia about the new strain of Corona. Strict steps are being taken in West Asia to prevent the spread of new corona strains.
University College London Hospitals NHS Trust (UCLH) said that researchers involved in the study of ‘Storm Chase’ believe that AstraZeneca has developed a long-term effective antibody (LAAB). This antibody is known as AZD 7442. This can provide immediate and long-term protection to those who have recently been exposed to the SARS-Covey-2 corona virus and will help prevent infection from developing. Antibodies are protein molecules that the body produces to fight infection.
The study team was led by virologist Dr. Catherine Houlihan. He has involved 10 participants in research since the beginning of this month. Catherine said, “We know that this combination of antibodies can control the virus, so we hope to provide this treatment via injection.” This will provide immediate protection against the development of Covid-19 in those who may be late in vaccination.
UCLH said that its new vaccine research center is conducting two clinical trials to protect against Covid-19. A second study is being conducted on the use of AZD 74442 in people who are at high risk of getting infected due to age etc. National Health Service (NHS) England Medical Director Prof. Stephen Powys stated that these two clinical trials are an important link in the use of new treatments. Actually, antibody treatment can be an option for a group of patients who are not benefiting from vaccination.
Immunization process has started in many countries after the news of new strains of Corona virus came out. According to media reports, the corona vaccine has reached Bulgaria, Spain and Romania. The first 9,750 doses have arrived in Bulgaria. The Spanish government plans to acquire 4.5 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine in the next 12 weeks. There are plans to provide vaccines to 2.2 million people with this dose. At the same time, Israel has stepped up the vaccination campaign.
WHO’s Director of Europe Affairs Hans Cluj said that the United Nations health agency is constantly monitoring the situation. This new strain is catching young people faster than the old corona virus. He said in a tweet, “So far, new variants of Corona have been identified in eight European countries. In such a situation, there is a need to strengthen the existing measures for rescue. It is important to follow the laws of masks and physical distance. ”
There is also an atmosphere of fear in West Asia about the new strain of Corona. Prevention measures have been tightened in many countries of the region. Iraq prohibited travel to Britain, South Africa, Australia, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Iran, Japan. Corona’s negative investigation report is indispensable for those coming from Turkey abroad. A nationwide lockdown has been imposed in Israel since Sunday.
Let us know that this new form of virus was found in Britain last week. After this, most countries of the world banned flights to and from Britain. This new type of corona is said to be 70 percent more infectious.
