Europe is facing the spread of a more contagious Indian strain of coronavirus. This COVID-19 strain, known as the вЂњdelta variant,вЂќ has already displaced other strains in a number of countries.
This was stated during a briefing by the Director of the WHO Regional Office for Europe, Hans Kluge.
According to him, this strain can infect even those who have immunity.
вЂњWe've been through this before. Last summer, cases gradually increased in younger age groups, then moved into older age groups, leading to a devastating outbreak, lockdown, and the death of many people in the fall and winter of 2020,вЂќ he said.
Recall that the WHO extended the global emergency regime due to the coronavirus.
