COVID Delta variant represents 2-4% of French cases -minister Veran

The four maps from top left, top right, bottom left and bottom right, show how the Delta variant has become the dominant strain

In its analysis, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London and Guys, and St Thomas's Hospital NHS Trust, London found that the vaccine effectiveness in preventing hospitalisation for cases with Delta variant of SARS-Cov-2 is as significant as Alpha i.e upto 96 per cent after two doses of Pfizer vaccine and up to 92 per cent with Oxford-Astrazeneca vaccine.

"This real world evidence shows that Covid-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca provides a high level of protection against the Delta variant, which is now a critical area of concern given its rapid transmission", Mene Pangalos, the executive vice president of AstraZeneca's BioPharmaceuticals R&D, said in a statement.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has classified the Delta, a highly transmissible COVID-19 variant first identified in India, as a "variant of concern".

After 28 days post-vaccination, he said there was "only really" a difference in protection "of about 18 per cent" for the AstraZeneca vaccine, "which is not great".

Researchers studied 14, 019 Covid-19 cases of the Delta variants, out of which 166 seeking critical care.

The Delta variant has been rapidly expanding throughout Canada.

Paul referred to the new variant as "Delta Plus" and added that details of the strain had been submitted to the global data system, after being brought into public domain on June 13, ANI reported.

The Guardian last week reported that more than 90 per cent of new Covid-19 cases in the United Kingdom and 96 per cent of new infections in England were caused by the Delta variant.

The Delta variant has been attributed to the rapid outbreak in the small population of Labuan with fewer than 100,000 residents.

The UK health secretary Matt Hancock revealed that the Delta variant is nearly twice more transmissible than the Alpha variant according to studies conducted in the country. He also said that the mutant strain has been found to nullify the use of monoclonal antibody, which has recently been used for treating high-risk coronavirus patients.
