Berlin:

BioNTech co-founder Ugur Sahin expressed confidence on Wednesday that the vaccine his company jointly developed with Pfizer will work against the Indian variant of the coronavirus.

“We are still testing the Indian variant, but the Indian variant has mutations that we have already tested and that our vaccine works against, so I am confident,” Sahin said.

“The vaccine is intelligently constructed and I am convinced that the bulwark will hold up. And if we have to reinforce the bulwark again, then we will, I’m not worried,” he added.

The country is facing new cases and deaths from the pandemic and fears are mounting that the variant could contribute to the ongoing catastrophe.

The World Health Organization said Covid-19 variant B.1.617 first found in the country had been detected on Tuesday in “at least 17 countries”.

The health agency recently listed B.1.617 – which has several sub-threads with slightly different mutations and characteristics – as a “variant of interest”.

But so far he hasn’t stopped to declare it a “variant of concern,” which would have indicated that it is more dangerous than the original version of the virus, for example, being more transmissible, deadly, or able to dodge vaccine protections.

The BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine was the first to gain authorization in the West and has since been distributed in dozens of countries around the world.

Providing an update of the authorization process in China, Mr. Sahin said approval was “very possible in July”.

“We’re almost done with all the questions,” he said.
