Meanwhile, American Moderna Company launches clinical trials of a new vaccine against Covid-19 mutations.

The company has started to develop a new drug when it was discovered that the current vaccine is less effective in the fight against the strain found in South Africa.

The laboratory tests show that Moderna vaccine against Covid-19 works against 501.V2 mutation occurred in South Africa and against B.1.1.7 mutation that was found in the UK.

However, the reaction of the neutralizing antibodies for 501.V2 was six times lower than the initial variant. It raises concerns that the immunity might weaken for such a virus, especially of old people.
