Vaccinated people reduce the risk of new dangerous coronavirus variants

Viruses are constantly changing through mutation. Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic at the end of 2019, numerous variants of the Covid-19 virus have formed. Delta is considered to be the most aggressive to date. According to scientists, new variants form in advance in the bodies of unvaccinated people. Unvaccinated people are a main reason for the appearance of new variants of the coronavirus.

According to this, the virus replicates faster in unvaccinated people, which increases the likelihood of mutations. As the newest variant, Epsilon is on the radar of scientists. “This is worrying as it is more transmissible than the original strains of the virus,” says Dr. Purvi Parikh, Allergy and Immunologist at the Allergy & Asthma Network in New York. There are first signs that the variant could be resistant to vaccines, Parikh told the US health portal “Healthline”.
