“We have so far strong vaccines against all forms of the disease in terms of severity and hospitalization, and there is no reason to believe that this will not happen,” Dr. Ryan explained in a rare interview with one another.
“The normal behavior we are seeing so far does not show an increase in severity. In fact, some places in South Africa are reporting mild symptoms,” the doctor also announced, shortly before the famous American scientist Anthony Fauzi told AFP.
“We have to be very careful in the way we analyze it,” Dr. Ryan said, adding that he was careful to emphasize on several occasions that November 24 was just the beginning of a variant study discovered by South African authorities. Recognized in dozens of countries since then.
The appearance of this variant has led to some panic, especially in Europe, which is already gripped by a massive fifth Kovid-19 case caused by the Delta variant.
