Amidst reports of people getting infected with the corona vaccine, Delhi AIIMS has conducted a study. The study states that the delta variant of coronavirus (B.1.617.2) is behind most cases of infection in people who have been vaccinated. This strain of corona is also infecting people who have had single or double doses of the vaccine. However, it was a matter of relief that most people only showed symptoms like high fever. No one had to deal with serious diseases.
Research was done on 63 breakthrough infected people
Delta variant found in 60% of people taking both doses
The study revealed that 63% of people who took both doses of the vaccine were infected with the delta variant, while 77% of the people who took one dose were found to have the delta variant of the corona virus. Only the samples collected for routine testing of patients coming to the emergency department of AIIMS were studied. These included high fever, shortness of breath and headache. However, this study has not yet been reviewed.
Viral load higher in people who have had both vaccines
According to the study report, the viral load was very high in all the patients during the research, whether they had taken a single dose of the vaccine or both. The viral load levels were found to be significantly higher in those who received both the Covishield and Covaccin vaccines.
