New Delhi/Bhubaneswar: Covidshield and Covaxin vaccines work against alpha, beta, gamma and delta variants of COVID-19 virus, informed Balram Bhargava, Director General, ICMR, today.

Delta Plus variant is present in 12 countries while 48 such cases have been identified in India. However, they have been very localised, he said.

“This virus has also been isolated and cultured now. We are doing the same test that we have done for alpha, beta, gamma and delta variants. We are looking at the laboratory test to check the vaccine effect. We should have the results in about 7 to 10 days,” he added.
