By BBN Staff: Researchers say that a new COVID-19 variant may reduce the vaccine efficacy.

The new variant was identified in South Africa, Reuters reports.

The new variant reportedly evades antibodies and may reduce the efficacy of the vaccines.

The new variant known as 501Y.V2 was identified by South African genomics.

According to scientists, the new variant is 50% more infectious than previous ones.

The new variant has reportedly spread to 20 countries.

The new variant is the main driver of the 2nd wave of COVID-19 in South Africa.

The daily new peak is above 21,000 cases.

Convalescent blood plasma from previous patients has not been shown to be effective when administered to severely ill patients requiring intensive care for COVID-19, but it is approved in several countries as an emergency measure.

Scientists have expressed concern that vaccines currently being deployed or in development could be less effective against the variant.
