Xu Shuchang, Chairman of the New Discovery and Animal Infectious Diseases Scientific Committee under the Center for Health Protection of the Department of Health, said today (20th) that a study by mainland scholars showed that The neutralizing antibody level of Kexing Vaccine against the South African mutant virus will drop by 70% compared to the non-variant virus. Another study pointed out that BioNTech's Forbitai vaccine has an antibody level against the South African mutant virus. It also plummeted 90%.



However, Xu Shuchang said that the two data cannot be directly compared due to the different subjects of the two studies.

Experts question the possibility of poisoning in hotel corridors

The authorities discovered that the hotel staff would hang the lunch box on the "S-shaped hook" on the door handle when serving meals, thinking that it might be the only way of transmission.

However, Liang Zichao, a respiratory specialist, believes that the claim that the virus spreads on a hook is "deified," which is unconvincing. He doubts that there is a higher possibility that patients have spread the virus through the air in the corridor.

He also suggested that all designated hotels should install air filters in the corridors.
