Not only this, this variant vaccine is also rapidly infecting people. WHO warned that whenever we relax the matters of public health and social distancing, the cases of corona infection start increasing rapidly all over the world.

The possibilities of new corona variants are high and they are also being reported continuously. As is the case with viruses. They keep on developing on their own. But if we want, we can stop the process of developing the variant by putting brakes on its transmission.
