“The peculiarity of Delta strain is that it spreads quite quickly from a person to person. In other words, it transmits 1.5 times faster. And, unfortunately, it also causes quite a large number of cases that demand intensive care or resuscitation procedures. In other words, it proceeds much heavier than the usual strain,” he said.
Chief Sanitary Doctor also noted that the recurrent cases of infection take place “not as standard but as an exception”.
