tonight over the new oh, macron vary and prompting the cdc to change its booster recommendations. now saying that everyone over 18 should get a booster shot. ktvu jana katsuyama joins us now live in the newsroom after talking to a doctor about whether current vaccines will protect us from this latest strange. heather the ucsf neurologist says that it will take several weeks before lab tests will have data. but late tonight, moderna's ceo said to the financial times that it appears there will be a quote material drop in the efficacy of current covid vaccines against the omicron variant. meantime spain announced its first confirmed case today and the omicron variant has spread now, too. five continents. genetic sequencing shows the omicron vary. it has 50 mutations, including some known to allow the virus to bind to human cells more tightly and cause high transmission. ucsf urologist nadia ron says that that is the reason for the urgency to collect data. it's theoretically
concerning because it has a lot of mutations more than delta, for example, and it has a lot of mutations within the spike protein, which is the target of most of our vaccines, and the world health organization sounded a little arm monday, calling the global risk very high. the armor con variant has now been found beyond southern africa in canada, asia, australia and europe. moderna announced monday it is testing existing vaccines, and it could take 2 to 3 months to produce an all macron vaccine booster if it's needed. health officials say that is why it's so important for the 80 million unvaccinated americans to get shots and for people to get covid boosters. my guess is that there probably will be some drop in efficacy of you know the antibody response, for example, but there are other components of the vaccine elicited response that should be, for the most part, maintained, in particular the t cells, which generally are more resistant to our own mutations. i've been receiving a lot of calls. from constituents , san mateo county supervisor
david canopus says those collars have asked about getting boosters. we're going to try to create more capacity for that. is now because of this variant. you're gonna start to see people wanting the booster more. the comic con cases in south africa have mostly been among unvaccinated people on a continent with the vaccination rate of less than 10% new variants come about when there's a low vaccination rate because the virus is allowed to make many copies of it's something it's just essentially gives more chances to develop these kinds of mutations. and so i think it really highlights that we need to get much more of the world vaccinated. one bit of good news is that professor ron says that covid tests can detect the r macron variant, making it easier to identify and track right. jana katsuyama reporting live for us tonight, janet. thank you . meantime the moderna ceos prediction that current vaccines will be less effective against the overgrown variant. sent stock futures lower late today.
