Sinopharm vaccine highly efficient against Delta variant

Researchers from one of Sri Lanka's leading universities, the Sri Jayewardenepura University, have found that China's Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine is highly efficient against the Delta variant which has become the dominant variant across the world.

"This vaccine was found very effective for the Delta variant as well. The antibody responses to delta variant and neutralizing antibodies were similar to levels seen following natural infection," the University said on its website on Monday.

Inbound passenger travel from a total of 16 countries to the UAE will remain suspended until further notice, said the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) on Monday.
