The growth rate of ‘Delta’ cases is increasing in all areas of the country, making up 90% of all new infections
Nearly 30,000 new coronavirus infections, in its Indian variant, were recorded in the United Kingdom in the last week: this is confirmed by the data released by Phe (Public health England). The PHE has confirmed 42,323 new cases of the Delta variant originating from India in the UK, last week there were 12,341. The growth rate of ‘Delta’ cases is increasing in all areas of the country, enough to constitute 90% of all new infections, and has 39,061 cases in England, 3,035 in Scotland, 184 in Wales and 43 in Northern Ireland.
The Jenny Harries, director of the Health Security Agency of UK, said, “With the increase in Delta variant cases across the country, vaccination is our best defense. If you are eligible, we encourage you to get vaccinated and remember that two doses provide protection significantly greater than one. “” The data show – concluded Harries – that the ‘Delta’ variant is more contagious than the ‘Alpha’ variant, therefore, it is important to follow the public health recommendations, which have never changed. You have to get vaccinated, work from home whenever possible, and always sanitize yourself. These measures work and save lives.”
