Vaccination does not help: scientists warned about insidious strain 'MU' /> </p>
<p> <strong> The strain is actively spreading in Colombia and Ecuador. </strong> </p>
<p> Recently, scientists have discovered a new strain of coronavirus, we are talking about the MU mutation. The World Health Organization has already announced that it has begun monitoring the circulation of the strain. Now in the United States they said that the MJ coronavirus strain can bypass the protection of antibodies, Chronicle.info reports with reference to Channel 24. </p>
<h3> MJ variant can bypass the antibody attack </h3>
<p> In particular, the chief adviser to the president US Medical Affairs Officer Anthony Fauci said it is important to keep an eye on the MJ mutation so that it does not become dominant. </p>
<p>When we say we're watching Manchester United, we want to make sure it doesn't become dominant. We don't know at all what the consequences might be, Fauci said. </p>
<p> <strong> Important! </strong> Anthony Fauci said in a statement that the new variant of MJ has a set of mutations that speaks of the ability to bypass protection against certain antibodies. </p>
<h3> This means that vaccines may form weaker protection </h3>
<p>The expert noted that there is still insufficient data to speak about the effectiveness of vaccines used in the country against this strain. </p>
<p> At the same time, Fauci clarified that the amount of antibodies that vaccines registered in the USA form should be sufficient for neutralization of any variant of the coronavirus. </p>
<h2> What is known about the strain MJ? </h2>
<p> The variant was discovered in Colombia in January this year. At the end of August, the World Health Organization added it to the list of COVID-19 variants that require special monitoring. Now the strain is actively spreading in Colombia and Ecuador. </p>
<h3> The threat is still higher than the Delta strain </h3>
<p> He added that, although doctors are actively studying the MJ strain, it is not the most urgent threat now. Only the Delta strain is currently dominant in the world – in fact, 99% of infections fall on this strain. </p>
<p> Recall that researchers have proven that the coronavirus mutates twice as fast as previously thought. In particular, the mutation rate of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is at least 49 – 67% higher than it could be expected. </p>
