The real worry now in the world is that breakthrough infections among the fully vaccinated have become much more common. While the protection supposedly assured by the two-dose course of the vaccination has been proven shaky with the new variant camouflaging with the help of an unusually large number of mutations, the worry is that it can break through human immune cells too to get into the DNA, causing organ damage and making the disease progress into a critically severe condition and turn fatal.
