Meanwhile, Bharat Biotech's Covid-19 vaccine Covaxin has shown less reduction in 'neutralizing activity' while comparing with Delta and Delta AY.1 (Delta plus) variants in those who are fully vaccinated with the vaccine according to a study by the Indian Council of Medical Research-National Institute of Virology (NIV).
This means that people vaccinated with Covaxin will be protected against the current variants Delta, Delta AY.1 and B.1.617.3.
