Dame Sarah Gilbert, the scientist who developed the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, said it is unlikely that the coronavirus will turn into a more deadly variant. Gilbert noted that Covid-19 will eventually become like other seasonal coronaviruses that cause colds and respiratory infections.
Dame Sarah Gilbert, the scientist behind the corona virus vaccine developed in partnership with the British pharmaceutical company Astrazeneca and Oxford University, made a statement about the future of the virus and the variants it suffered.
Speaking at the Royal Society of Medicine webinar held yesterday, Dame Sarah said, “The virus cannot mutate completely because the spike protein has to interact with the ACE2 receptor on the surface of the human cell to enter that cell.” cannot enter. So there aren’t many places where the virus could be a contagious virus by escaping immunity,” she said.
‘IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO TURN INTO A MORE FATAL VARIANT’
The scientist behind the Oxford vaccine said it was unlikely that Covid-19 would evolve into a much more deadly variant, “because there isn’t a lot of places for the virus to go.”
Sarah Gilbert stated that viruses tend to be less lethal over time as the community becomes immune as they spread in a population, while some genetic changes are expected, but Covid-19 will eventually be like other seasonal corona viruses that cause colds and respiratory infections.
THERE ARE FOUR CORONA VIRUSES CURRENTLY AND WE ARE NOT EVEN AWARE.
“Normally, we see that viruses become less lethal because they circulate more easily, and there is no reason to think that we will have a more lethal version of Covid-19,” said the scientist, underlining that there are currently four types of corona viruses circulating in the world and they are not even aware of them. he drew.
