A research group led by Kawa Oka Yoshihiro, a project professor at the University of Tokyo’s Institute of Medical Sciences, has published its findings in an American scientific journal.

The study found that gamma-type remnants were discovered on the sixth day in hamsters that had never been infected with the corona virus before.
Researchers have also confirmed that people who have been vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine contain antibodies that are almost as effective against the gamma strain as against the original virus.
The group says the research results provide key information in the process of estimating gamma-type hazards.
