Lambda COVID-19 Strain May be Resistant to Vaccines, Reports Suggest

The Lambda strain, first found in Peru, is worrying experts in Latin America and perplexing scientists with its unusual mutations.

Data shows that the so-called Lambda COVID strain could be more transmissible than the Delta, Alpha, and Gamma variants, Metro reports, citing health experts.

Moreover, COVID-19 vaccines may not offer sufficient protection against it.

“Our data show for the first time that mutations present in the spike protein of the Lambda variant confer escape to neutralising antibodies and increased infectivity,” the researchers from the University of Chile said as quoted by the paper.
