It is being tested whether the Indian version of the coronavirus can avoid immunity against COVID-19 after illness and vaccination, commented the epidemiologist Petar Markov in “This Saturday” on BTV.

“The other direction in which we are working is whether this option is more contagious than the original, there are some indications of this,” Markov added.
