Serum Institute of India chief Adar Poonawalla shared a hilarious video in support of the recall fire against the Omicron variant of Covid-19. Mr Poonawalla took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a clip of Alone at home – the 1990 Christmas classic in which eight-year-old Kevin McCallister defends his house against two burglars.
The video, created by the US-based Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, shows Kevin using a “vaccine” to fight off the two burglars, who have been tagged Delta and Omicron. As the vaccine manages to defeat the Delta variant, Kevin uses a bucket (labeled “booster” in the clip) to defeat Omicron.
“What is happening here!?” Mr Poonawalla wrote sharing the hilarious recreation of Alone at home.
What is happening here!?

Earlier this month, Adar Poonawalla said the Serum Institute of India was working on developing a more effective booster vaccine against the Omicron strain.
Based on enough data, it is safe to say that booster injections are a proven strategy to increase antibodies to a large extent, Mr Poonawalla said.
“The message for everyone – and a priority – is that everyone gets both doses of the vaccine. This is the first step in staying protected. Only then can safety be improved with reminders over the next year of government must stay so everyone is doubly vaccinated, “Poonawalla told DAILYNEWSCATCH last month.
