Especially dangerous: the “Delta” strain has swept France

The spread of coronavirus has increased in France over the past five days due to an Indian strain called “Delta”. This was announced on Sunday by the head of the French Ministry of Health, Olivier Veran.

“Over the past five days, the spread of the virus has not decreased but only intensified. This is due to a very contagious variant of the Delta, “ he wrote on Twitter.

According to him, “the English example shows that a new wave of the epidemic is possible at the end of July.”

“We can limit its sanitary consequences if we comply with restrictive measures, get vaccinated and pass tests,” Veran said.

According to the authorities, since the beginning of the epidemic in France, more than 5.7 million cases of coronavirus infection have been detected, of which 2.5 thousand were registered in the last 24 hours. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 111 thousand people have died of the consequences of infection in the republic. Over the past seven days, 803 people have been taken to hospitals in the country with symptoms of COVID-19. According to the health authorities, about 34 million French people have so far received at least one vaccination against coronavirus.
