Fresh Covid Surge Is Reported from Worldwide - A Variant of Concern

The rapid surge of transmissible delta plus variant of SARS-CoV-2 virus is affecting a lot of people worldwide, with India and the United States being the major contributors.
Over four million coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases were reported from July 26 to August 1, which was largely attributed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to a substantial increase in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Western Pacific Regions.
The highest number of new Covid-19 cases was reported from the United States, followed by India, Indonesia, Brazil, and Iran.
According to a Bloomberg report, The US reported 761,216 new fresh cases, the highest total since early February.
UK scientists have already warned that even vaccinated people may transmit the delta plus strain as easily as non-vaccinated people
As it is a "variant of concern", it is important to follow social distancing and all safety protocols.
