With all the rosy dreams of unleashing your nomadic self while keeping the safety measures in mind, we thought the world is finally in a place to wander around. But, is it? Have we checked the statistics and the actual cases of COVID-19 and the health workers that are researching the delta variant?
A more contagious variant of the coronavirus, known as delta, is spreading in the United States and around the world, causing a surge of cases in some countries and prompting several nations to introduce new lockdowns.
Let us have a look at the real side of the story.
What is the Delta variant?
The Delta variant is one of several variants of concern identified by the World Health Organisation and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The variant could be 50% more contagious than the already faster-spreading Alpha variant of Covid, which emerged in Britain last year, health officials say.
As per the Studies, the vaccines for the Covid-19 are still largely effective against the Delta variant. But for the ones that are partially vaccinated needs to be protective and follow the safety measures.
According to the experiences of several countries, the Delta variant can spread rapidly through the unvaccinated population, including children.
Countries suffering from the Delta variant
As per the news reports, with the increasing cases of the Delta Variant, many countries have imposed restrictions to make sure the Delta Variant does less harm, and can be handled in a greater responsible manner.
