The double dose of Pfizer vaccine protects 70% of Omigran in severe cases

The US laboratory Pfizer’s vaccine is generally less effective against Omigran, but protects against 70% of serious illnesses, according to a study released Tuesday in South Africa and found a new variant in November. There are many uncertainties as to the nature of this new form of Govt-19. According to the first observations of scientists, it is highly contagious, but an unusually high number of mutations raise many fears about its ability to resist the vaccine.
