According to an AIIMS investigation, the Delta Covid-19 form can infect persons who have vaccinated. The AIIMS Delhi researched 63 patients who had whole or partial reinfections following immunisation. While no deaths have recorded, the study discovered that the Delta variation is the most common in reinfection instances.
In a study undertaken by AIIMS Delhi, the Delta strain of Covid-19, which was first detected in India, was predominant despite complete and partial immunisation.
Experts have stated that vaccination is not a guarantee against Covid-19 infection and will prevent the disease from becoming severe. Still, a preliminary study conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi has claimed the same after conducting a small survey of 63 people. There are a total of 63 persons in this group.
Thirty-five people received both vaccine doses, whereas 27 only received one. They all developed breakthrough infections (infections after vaccination), and the Delta variant — the variant previously reported in India — found to be the most common among the genome sequenced samples.
The following is everything you need to know about this research:
- Thirty-six samples sequenced out of a total of 63. One dose finished by 19 of them, while the other doses received by 17 of them.
- The Delta variant (B.1.617.2) detected in 23 of the 36 samples examined.
- Covishield gave to 18 of the 63 participants, while Covaxin gave 53 of them.
- According to AIIMS, the patients ranged from 21 to 92 years old, with 41 men and 22 women.
- It should recall that AIIMS previously stated that no one died in this group, implying that vaccination reduced mortality.
“Reinfections and vaccine breakthrough infections are uncommon, but genome sequencing of vaccine breakthrough infections can reveal important information.” The variants of concern B.1.617.2 and B.1.1.7 comprised the majority of the vaccine breakthrough infections investigated using genome sequencing, closely overlapping and mirroring the Covid-19 cases in the state of Delhi.
Still, the proportions were not significantly different in comparison to the population prevalence of the variants during this period with high community transmission,” the study said.
