'A new vaccine for coronavirus mutant can be developed in six weeks'
In the context of the raging infections caused by coronavirus mutant in the UK, BioNTech has come out with the promise that it could make a new vaccine for the mutant in six weeks' time using the new mRNA technology.

NEW DELHI, Dec 22: The Pfizer partner in the development of coronavirus vaccine using the latest technology called mRNA, BioNTech has stated that the vaccine will also likely work against any mutated strains but the pharma is confident that at the same time it is capable of adapting the vaccine to prevent the mutations also.

"In principle the beauty of the messenger technology is that we can directly start to engineer a vaccine which completely mimics this new mutation. We could be able to provide a new vaccine technically within six weeks," Ugur Sahin of BioNTech told a press conference after the European Union on Monday gave emergency authorisation to the vaccine.

The vaccination in Europe will begin after Christmas. All the 27 member-countries of the European Union will have it. This will take the number of countries using the vaccine to 40.

Meanwhile, India has suspended UK flights. Russia, Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Norway, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland have also banned flights to and from the UK, which has been severely affected by the fast-spreading coronavirus mutant.
