The China-made Sinopharm vaccine against Covid provides a special protection against the delta Covid-19 variant as per the findings of a local study, revealed State Minister of Drug Supply Channa Jayasumana, speaking to media yesterday (11).
“I have a special message to say with much joy today. Because a lot of people asks whether the vaccine we administer would be effective in the event that this new variant is dangerous; whether the Sinopharm has an effect on the delta variant.
Now, a local study carried out initially revealed that the Sinopharm vaccine provides a special protection against the delta variant. Findings of this local study, I think, would be launched before the country and the world by next Wednesday or Thursday. So, I would like to convey the positive message that those who were administered with Sinopharm, I think, would be given a special protection against the delta variant,” he said.
