An aggressive mutation of the Delta coronavirus has become dominant among new Covid cases in Ukraine. The rate of spread of the strain has increased significantly - one such infected person can, on average, infect 5-8 people. This is arguably the most contagious option. Research shows it is 40-60% more infectious than Britain's Alpha strain. In addition, the new strain may be more likely to infect people who are only partially vaccinated and increases the risk of hospitalization.

Delta (B.1.617.2) was first discovered in India in December 2020. Now it has become one of the most dangerous strains of coronavirus circulating around the world.
