The alarm is sounded! Virus similar to Covid-19 discovered, suspected to be resistant to vaccines
Written by SOT.COM.AL 23 Shtator 2022
A newly discovered Covid-like virus found in Russian bats is suspected to be capable of infecting humans and is currently resistant to all vaccines.
A team of researchers discovered that proteins from a bat virus known as Khosta-2 can also migrate into human cells.
Unlike known Covid infections, it is resistant to antibodies and sera populations are currently protected against.
Study author Michael Letko has called for universal vaccines to be developed to help protect against other dangerous viruses found in nature.
Letko said: Our research further shows that sarbecoviruses circulating in wildlife outside of Asia, even in places like western Russia where the Khosta-2 virus was found, pose a threat to global health and ongoing vaccine campaigns against SARS-CoV- 2.
"Genetically, these strange Russian viruses looked like some of the others that had been discovered elsewhere in the world, but because they didn't look like SARS-CoV-2, no one thought they were really anything to worry about. But when we looked at them further, we were surprised to find that they could infect human cells."
The Khosta-1 and Khosta-2 viruses were discovered in Russian bats in 2020, and initial tests found they posed no threat to humans.
The team of researchers found that Khosta-2 can use its protein to infect cells by attaching to a receptor protein.
Tests later showed that Khosta-2 was not neutralized by current vaccines, while antibodies from humans infected with omicron also proved ineffective.
