New York, March 30: Two-thirds of 77 epidemiologists (77 epidemiologists from 28 countries), virologists and infectious disease specialists by the Mutation People’s Vaccine Alliance say that vaccines of COVID-19 (COVID-19) by the Mutation People’s Vaccine Alliance May be ineffective in years or less. The results of the survey published on Tuesday warn the world of the risk that it fails to ensure that all countries have enough vaccines to protect people from Kovid-19.

Nearly a third of those surveyed gave a time limit of nine months or less. One in eight said that they believed mutations would not make current vaccines ineffective. An overwhelming majority, 88 percent, said that persistently low vaccine coverage in many countries would make them more likely to show vaccine resistant mutations.
The People’s Vaccine Alliance, a coalition of more than 50 organizations including the African Alliance, Oxfam and UNAIDS, warned that at the current rate it was likely that only 10 percent of the majority of poor countries would be vaccinated in the following year.
Nearly three-quarters of those polled included epidemiologists, virologists and infectious disease specialists, including John Hopkins, Yale, Imperial College, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Cambridge University, University of Edinburgh and University of Cape Town – That open sharing of technology and intellectual property can increase global vaccine coverage.
Devi Sridhar, Professor of Global Public Health at the University of Edinburgh in the UK, said in a statement, “The more the virus spreads, the more likely it is that mutations and mutations will occur, which could make our current vaccines ineffective. At the same time, Poor countries are being left behind without basic medical supplies such as vaccines and oxygen. “
He said, “As we have learned, viruses do not care about borders, we have to vaccinate as many people everywhere in the world as soon as possible. Why wait and watch instead of moving on?”
While he did not specify a timeframe, Greg Gonsalves, associate professor of epidemiology at Yale University, echoed the urgency to get vaccinated globally.
