The Indian government’s committee of scientists said in a report published today, Friday, that the strain of the Corona virus, which was first discovered in India, is highly contagious and may affect those who have previously contracted the disease or who have not received the full dose of vaccination.
Researchers at the Genetics Union (SARS-Cove-2) and the National Center for Disease Control said that the strain, which the World Health Organization called (the Delta strain), transmits infection by 50 percent more than the transmission of the Corona strain discovered in Britain.
They warned that “previous infections and partial vaccinations do not pose sufficient obstacles to their spread, as happened in Delhi, and strong public health action is needed worldwide to contain them.”
And this strain has spread to more than 50 countries, including Britain, whose Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned that its rapid spread may affect the reopening of the economy.
Infections have fallen steadily in major Indian cities in recent weeks, but rural areas are still facing an extremely dangerous second wave of infection.
Experts have warned that the country needs to speed up the pace of vaccination to prevent an increase in infections in the future among the population of more than 1.3 billion people.
Today, Friday, India announced that 132,364 new cases of coronavirus had been recorded during the past 24 hours, while deaths from infection with the virus increased by 2,713.
