‘Khosta-2’ virus found in bats of Russia can infect humans, corona vaccine is ineffective! – News18 Gujarati

Washington: According to a report published in Time magazine, researchers have discovered a virus that can be dangerous to humans in Russian bats. The virus named ‘Khosta-2’ belongs to the same subtype of corona virus as SARS-CoV-2. It is capable of infecting human cells and subverting the immunity provided by the Covid-19 vaccination. In addition, the findings may raise concerns among the world’s health professionals.

Even if they have been vaccinated, they will be infected

Washington State University’s Paul G. According to research conducted by researchers at the Allen School for Global Health, ‘Khosta-2’ is resistant to both monoclonal antibodies and serum. Along with this, it can also enter the human cells of people who have received the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. This thesis has been published in the journal ‘PLOS Pathogens’.

This virus is dangerous for vaccination campaigns

Khost-2 and SARS-CoV-2 are related to SARS-CoV. It is a subgroup of corona virus. Michael Letko, a virologist at WSU and corresponding author of the study, told WSU News, “Our research further demonstrates that Sarbecovirus is present in wildlife outside of Asia. Even in places like western Russia, where the Khosta-2 virus has been found. This could also pose a threat to global health and the ongoing vaccine campaign against SARS-CoV-2.’

Need to find Khost-2 vaccine: Letco

Mr Latko also said, ‘The discovery of Khosta-2, rather than protecting against known forms of SARS-CoV-2, is the need to create a universal vaccine capable of protecting against SARS-CoV-2 in general.’

Research has shown it to be transmissible to humans

Hundreds of cerbecoviruses have been discovered over the past few years. Mostly in Asian bats. But most of them do not have the ability to infect human cells. Khost-2 was initially thought to be the same, but recent research has again raised concerns about the infection spreading to humans.

Khasta-2 Dangerous for people

Mr. Lecko has collaborated with two WSU faculty members to research two recently discovered viruses. Their names are viral ecologist Stephanie Siefert, first author, and viral immunologist Bobby Gunn. He discovered that Khosta-1 caused minimal harm to people. Whereas Khosta-2 is more dangerous to humans.
