Coronavirus: Is it necessary for people who have been vaccinated to get a booster shot or not? Read the answer of the Chief Scientist of WHO

World Health Organization's chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan has recently said that there is no need to confirm or reject the need for a booster shot after the Kovid-19 vaccination. Not enough information. The United Kingdom has launched a nationwide study to find out whether a third shot of the same vaccine would provide more coverage to people who have already been fully vaccinated. Chances of re-infection are low but such infected patients are definitely found all over the world.

The Russian Direct Investment Fund, which markets Sputnik V, said it would offer a booster shot to other vaccine makers. This shot has a high potential to work against the delta variant of the coronavirus found for the first time in India. The RDIF said this is because Sputnik V is more effective against the delta variant than other vaccine manufacturers.

Many needy did not get full vaccination

All current vaccines consist of two doses. It is not clearly known how long the effect of vaccination lasts and many countries are considering the annual shot. Soumya Swaminathan said it was too early to consider this as many high-risk people in most parts of the world have not yet received full vaccination. He said data from countries starting additional precautionary immunizations later this year - especially for vulnerable people whose immunity to SARS-CoV-2 may rapidly decline - would inform WHO's guidance.

Delta variant of Corona first surfaced in India

The delta variant of Kovid-19 is becoming more prevalent in the world than other forms of this virus because it is transmitted much faster. Soumya Swaminath claimed this on Friday. The delta form of Kovid-19 first appeared in India. According to the Kovid-19 weekly epidemiological update released by the WHO on June 15, the delta form is now being found in about 80 countries. B.1.617.2 The delta form was first detected in India in October 2020.

The Center is trying to find a peaceful solution to the Assam and Mizoram border dispute, no plans for a CBI inquiry - officials informed

The Center has no plans to have a neutral agency like the CBI probe the recent clashes along the Assam-Mizoram border , but is trying to resolve the dispute peacefully at the earliest. Two top government officials said that the central government does not want to take any such decision which will worsen the situation.

He said that the central government wants a peaceful solution to the current border dispute between Assam and Mizoram and Union Home Minister Amit Shah is in constant touch with both the Chief Ministers- Himanta Biswa Sarma (Assam) and Zoramthanga (Mizoram). Zoramthanga also tweeted, "I still hope for an amicable solution to the Assam-Mizoram tension from the Center."

He also tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Chief Ministers of Meghalaya, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Tripura and Sikkim in his tweet. At the same time, the Chief Minister of Assam said in his tweet, "Our main objective is to keep the spirit of the Northeast alive. What happened on the Assam-Mizoram border is unacceptable to the people of both the states. The border dispute can be resolved only through discussion.

The clash took place on 26 July

Asked whether the probe into the July 26 clash was likely to be handed over to a neutral agency like the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), both the top government officials said no decision has been taken in this regard yet. Five Assam policemen and a civilian were killed and more than 50 people were injured in the clash. Apart from this, neither state of Assam or Mizoram has made any formal request for a neutral agency to conduct an inquiry, he said.

One of these officials said, "Both the state governments are cooperating and the central government is confident that there will be no more clashes on the border." FIRs have been registered against political leaders, police and civil administration officials. Both the government officials mentioned the steps taken to reduce tension along the Assam-Mizoram border.

On July 28, a meeting was held under the chairmanship of Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla.

The Chief Secretaries and Director Generals of Police of both the states participated in a meeting chaired by Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla on July 28 in which it was decided to deploy a neutral force (CRPF) at the conflict site. Earlier, the two chief secretaries had met in a bilateral meeting in Delhi. After this, the central government issued an advisory to both the states asking them to maintain peace on the inter-state border. Both officials said the July 26 violence was a "sporadic" incident and such incidents are unlikely to happen again in future.
