Data from these studies have been sent to the biroxive “pre-publication” site, where scientists can submit their work before publishing it in a scientific journal.
“We hope our vaccine provides long-term protection against Covid 19 and helps neutralize delta diversity,” said Paul Stoffels, science director at Johnson & Johnson, quoting a statement released Thursday evening.
“Data from more than eight months of research so far have shown that a single-dose vaccine” developed by the laboratory reduces a strong neutralizing antibody response, which does not diminish, and we notice even an improvement over time, “said research head Matthew Mummen.

The World Health Organization on Thursday warned of a new wave of infections posed by delta variation in Europe, as the number of cases increases at a “dangerous rate” in Africa as it embarks on its health journey in hopes of renewing tourism.
