New Delhi, 19/12: For the last two years, due to Coronavirus, there has been an uproar in the whole world. Till now no concrete medicine has been made to beat this virus. Therefore, the only way to avoid it is the vaccine. But new variants of Corona pose a challenge for scientists. For example, whether the current vaccine is effective against the new variant Omicron of Corona, it is difficult to say at the moment. But scientists believe that if a vaccine based on mRNA technology is made, then it is easy to change it. In such a situation, it can be effective against any variant.
Scientists Kizmekia Corbett, Barne Graham, Caitlin Carrico and Drew Wiseman worked on the mRNA-based vaccine. According to the Hungarian-born Carico, if the mRNA technology is worked properly, then the body can be used as a pharmaceutical factory. He said, ‘With the plug and play feature of mRNA vaccine, any vaccine can be prepared within a month to fight against new variants.’
Awarded Heroes of the Year
Let us tell you that Caitlin Carrico has been awarded the title of Heroes of the Year by Time magazine this year. This Hungarian woman scientist has also played a big role in the development of vaccines for Pfizer and BioNTech. The vaccine was found to be 95 percent effective in clinical trials, and Caitlin’s role for this vaccine was that when RNA technology was considered an impractical idea for a vaccine, he worked on it.
