Microbiologist: "Coronavirus mutation was expected" ,Video Jan 19, 2021 | 13:44 / Important events

The world has been fighting COVID-19 for more than a year. Although strict quarantine regimes and vaccination processes are aimed at defeating the coronavirus, the virus continues to cross borders and end new lives. Mutated strains of the virus have been found in more than 50 countries. All these threats make it necessary to conduct additional research on the virus.

Responding to claims that the new strain of coronavirus called B.1.1.7 is more contagious, Ayten Agayeva, an employee of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnologies of ANAS, said that the coronavirus was expected to mutate because it belongs to viruses with RNA genomes.

Speaking about the vaccines imported to Azerbaijan, Ayten Agayeva said that the vaccines made in China will be safer and more effective in preventing the virus than inactive methods.
