A South African variant of the virus is 8 times more present in vaccinated than in unvaccinated people, according to an Israeli study

A new study by Israeli scientists has revealed that the South African variant of kovid can lead to people who have been vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech) to a higher risk of infection than unvaccinated people.

The study also showed an increased incidence of the British strain in those who received a single dose of this vaccine.

“The South African variant is to some extent capable of breaking through the protection of the phaser vaccine,” said one of the study’s authors, Professor Adi Stern.

A study published on April 10 analyzed the positive results of the test on KOVID-19 800 people and that

– 400 people who tested positive for COVID 14 days or more after receiving one or two doses of Pfizer.

– 400 unvaccinated persons

to determine whether the vaccinated were more likely to be infected with the UK or South African variant compared to unvaccinated individuals.

A team from Tel Aviv University and the Clalit health organization sequenced swabs of 150 Israelis who tested positive for KOVID-19 despite vaccination.

The South African variant, B.1.351, was found to account for about 1% of all KOVID cases in all people studied, according to a study by Tel Aviv University and Israel’s largest healthcare provider, Clalit.

But among patients who received two doses of the vaccine, the prevalence rate of the variant was eight times higher than in the unvaccinated – 5.4% versus 0.7%, Reuters reported.

“We found a disproportionately higher rate of the South African variant among people vaccinated with the second dose compared to the unvaccinated group,” said Adi Stern of Tel Aviv University, who led the research team. “This means that the South African variant is to some extent able to break through the protection of the vaccine.”
