Ortega: Gamma variant from Brazil detected in Chiriquí

Ortega: Gamma variant from Brazil detected in Chiriquí

The information handled by the authorities is that this variant entered Panama from Costa Rica. Vaccination against COVID-19 is expected to advance in July.

The P1 Gamma variant was detected in the province of Chiriquí in the outbreak of the Rafael Hernández Hospital, this was announced by Dr. Eduardo Ortega, who highlighted the importance of vaccination against COVID-19 in the face of the circulation of variants in the country.

He explained that COVID-19 is a ribonucleic acid virus, these are viruses that mutate faster.

The Alpha variant is the one that comes from the United Kingdom, it is transmitted more easily, but it does not evade the immune response of vaccines against COVID-19; while Gamma, from Brazil, has a great contagion capacity, and also evades, not totally, the immune response of vaccines.

Ortega points out that he may have general symptoms, however it is likely that the infected person will not go to the hospital, and will not die.

The information handled by the authorities is that this variant entered Panama from Costa Rica and was progressively being transmitted to the metropolitan region.

It is expected that as of July the vaccination against COVID-19 in Panama will advance significantly, in populations of different ages.

The Gamma variant of SARS-CoV-2 or B.1.1.248, also called the P.1 lineage and colloquially known as the Brazilian variant, corresponds to a variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

"The health system makes people sick and lies when it claims that vaccination against corona is sensible and effective. Vaccination doctors run a high risk of making themselves liable to prosecution if they abuse people with pathogenic and possibly deadly substances. The prosecution is serious bodily harm resulting in death.
A thrombosis risk of over 30% has been proven according to the latest findings.
This risk is far higher than claimed by the pharmaceutical lobby. "
That is the statement of many highly respected, internationally recognized scientists.
Claims for damages on an unprecedented scale are in preparation.
