Delta can also infect people who have only received one dose of vaccines and is “likely” to spread widely this summer in Europe, especially among younger populations who have not yet been vaccinated.
The center noted that there are “a very large number of people” who are at risk of severe infection and that they should be protected as quickly as possible.
Mexico City / Copenhagen / New Delhi, June 23 (However / EFE) delta variable, more contagious than other mutations, would mean 90 percent of cases in European Union for the purpose of AugustAs India reaches 30 million infections and tries to contain a more serious version of SARS-CoV-2, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said: Delta Plus.
Preliminary data suggests that Delta may also infect people who have received only one dose of coronavirus vaccines and “likely” will spread widely this summer, especially among the younger population who has not yet been vaccinated. Europe warns. “This could put the most vulnerable people at risk of infection, becoming seriously ill or dying if they do not complete the vaccination process,” he warned.
The European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) noted that there are “a very large number of people” at risk of severe infection and that they should receive protection as quickly as possible: until then, circulation of this variant should be kept at a low level with measures health that controls the effect of other mutations. He urged that the second dose of the vaccine be given in the shortest period of time allowed since the first was received, and that vaccination be accelerated.

“The good news is that two doses of any of the available vaccines offer high protection against this variant and its consequences. However, 30 percent of those over 80 and 40 percent of those over 60 have not yet completed the process in Europe.
Delta Plus is in Evolution
Meanwhile, India has crossed 30 million coronavirus infections as authorities start to worry about the emergence of a new type of virus known as Delta Plus. And 50,848 new infections of the Covid-19 virus were recorded during the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of infections to more than 30 million, according to the latest data provided by the Indian Ministry of Health.
India is the world’s second hardest hit by the coronavirus in absolute terms, after the United States, which has 33.5 million infections, according to Johns Hopkins University. It also exceeded the barrier of 390,000 deaths since the beginning of the epidemic, recording 1,358 deaths to date.
Despite these numbers, infections are declining in the Asian country, showing the best numbers reported in more weeks. India experienced a deadly second wave of the coronavirus that peaked in mid-May with more than 400,000 a day, further straining its health system that left dramatic pictures of saturated hospitals and crematoriums.
The delta variant of the coronavirus, which was originally identified in India and is already spreading to 92 countries according to the World Health Organization (WHO), is seen as one of the factors that contributed to the staggering increase in cases in India, given its high. portability. The government has reported that about 40 cases of a new variant of the coronavirus, known as Delta Plus, have been discovered, which is more contagious, unleashing fear of a devastating third wave that is inevitable according to experts.
The Delta Plus variant is a mutant version of the B.1.617.2 strain, called the Delta variant, which has caused a second wave of infection in India. India delivered 5.4 million vaccines on Wednesday, as part of a campaign that authorities consider the best defense against the coronavirus.
That number is lower than the record of more than 8 million doses given in a single day, last Monday, although it is an improvement from the numbers in recent weeks. The Asian country had set a goal of giving a total of 600 million doses by August, although vaccine shortages have significantly delayed this ambitious programme.
