A recent study has revealed that the delta variant of the virus is more likely to be infected despite taking Covid-19 vaccines. This preliminary study was conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. This study seems to support what some experts have said so far.
Experts say that despite being vaccinated, there is no guarantee that Covid-19 infection will not be transmitted, and that vaccination will only prevent the disease from getting worse. 63 people were involved in a recent study by AIIMS. Of these, 35 were vaccinated with both the doses of the Covid-19 vaccine and 27 people took only one dose. All of them were diagnosed with Breakthrough Infections (infections after vaccination). The delta variant was found to be prevalent in these samples. Out of 63, 36 samples were genome sequenced.
Of these, 19 received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine and 17 people took a single dose. The delta variant (b.1.617.2) was identified in 23 of the 36 samples. The AIIMS said no deaths were reported among members of the group. This study suggests that vaccination reduces mortality.
