The Delta variant of the coronavirus has caused chaos around the world as it has spread to many countries and according to the World Health Organization, is more contagious than others. Immunologist Kristaq Berxholi in a Skype connection on the show “Morning Abc” said that there is no room for panic as the vaccines that have come on the market have the necessary mechanisms to guarantee proper protection.
“Vaccines that are in use have a powerful mechanism, protecting humans from serious and moderate diseases. You have to keep in mind that infection is one thing and disease is another. Not all cases of infections end in disease. In case they end up with disease, vaccines play a role in prevention.
All species that are in Albania have guaranteed human protection from severe forms and hospitalizations. Creates 100 percent protection which means that people do not suffer from diseases with clinical signs, to be intubated and die.Said the virologist.
Asked what environment favors the occurrence of mutations, the immunologist said: “Mutations have two reasons that form. The first is that the virus itself has the quality of mutations to escape the defense or fight of the body’s immune system. There are other factors that accelerate the onset of mutations. “It was a matter of vaccination because countries around the world were not properly prepared to deal with the pandemic and took it for granted.”
