Reliable can be used Number of new infections not determined. But it is clear: the infection has been completely out of control. Since the beginning of the pandemic (as of April 8, 2021) are more ill in Brazil than 13 million people demonstrably at Corona.

, however, physicians also go out of a high number of dark figure. Many sick and recently recent were probably never statistically recorded. The country has more than 200 million inhabitants. Other countries in which the variant spreads are Mexico, Sweden, Belgium and Colombia.

What is known about the SARS COV-2 variant P.1?

"absolutely necessary": the opposition calls for the closure of the aerial links to fight against the Brazilian variant

physicians have proven the variant for the first time on January 10 in Brazil. It has 17 mutations, three of which are the spike protein. The latter probably lead to the fact that the virus can penetrate more easily into the cells and multiply there.

is particularly problematic, the mutation E484K, is likely to be responsible for people who have already survived a coronavirus infection once again.

First, P.1 mainly described

in the state of Manaus , which was noteworthy in that many people in Covid-19 were precisely there and physicians actually had hope, that there soon a natural herd immunity could occur. This hope has smashed through P.1. The mutations of the variant P.1 are similar to those of the South African variant B.1.351, but have developed independently of her. runs a disease with p.1 heavier than with other variants?

experiences from other countries in which p.1. has occurred, suggest that the severity of the courses is not heavier than the original wild type.

The Brazilian variant spreads disturbingly throughout Latin America . In Peru, the first case of infection of this variant was detected in February in the Loreto region at the Brazilian border. Since then, it has spread at high speed throughout the country, and until Lima, where it represents nearly half of the new cases.

but final data are hardly available so far. It is clear: the variant is much contagious. In Brazil, has meant that the health system is hopelessly overloaded. Therefore, the high deaths. ICUs are not available for most patients and oxygen supplies are running low.

The fact that there are such circumstances no reliable figures on new infections, make it almost impossible at present to make a statistically reliable statement on the dangerousness of the variant P.1.

How effective are the available vaccinations still? act

Whether and how well the currently available vaccines against the variant P.1 has been clarified yet not exhaustive. It is known that about drugs from AstraZeneca and BioNTech form in the laboratory neutralizing antibodies against the variant. But a preliminary study shows that these are not so effective as against the wild type.

It is also known that the AstraZeneca vaccine

is not as effective acts against the South African variant , which yes has similar mutations in the spike protein.

Nevertheless, it is still useful to maintain the vaccine strategy, because even with infection with a virus variant,

is probably the highlights of milder vaccination. vaccinated persons must then be more rarely treated intensive care and less patients die.
