Spreading Depression | Coronavirus Delta Spreading: According to the World Health Organization leader, the delta coronavirus variants spread “quickly” between non-vaccinated populations. ‘Delta is the most communicable variant of the variants identified to date,’ said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General, during a press briefing Friday.
He said that WHO is concerned about the delta variation. Hence organization has seen new cases of global coronavirus grow as some countries relax mitigation measures.

More Transmission More Variants
Tedros stated that “we can prevent the development of variant by preventing transmission while the viruses are expected to mutate.”
“It’s pretty straightforward: more transmission, more variations,” said Tedros. “The fewer transmissions, the fewer variants.”
It gives rise to growing importance to public health and vaccinations. But “as a worldwide community, we fail” in supplies of vaccine COVID-19, Tedros said.
“We repeat the same error as HIV/AIDS which, after ten years of widespread explosion in high-income countries, had to reach the low-income countries. Hence the H1N1 vaccinations provided after the end of the epidemic,” said Tedros. “Would we like the same thing to repeat? Can we not learn from past events?”
Measures To Control This Spreading Transmission
WHO Assistant Director-General of the World Health Organization Mariangela Simao suggested that fully vaccinated individuals continue to wear masks as variants move around.
“A community transmission alone will not stop vaccine,” said Simao. “Masks should use consistently and in ventilate environments – hygiene of the hand, breathing labels – physical distance, avoid crowds. Even if you get vaccinate when you are on community transmission, this is still extremely important.”
Public health officials say more than 20% of new US infections are accounting for in the delta variant.
Four Variants are Spreading
The COVID-19 Weekly Update for Epidemiology releases by the WHO on 22 June indicating. That in 170 countries, territories, or regions, Beta in 119 countries, Gamma in 71, and Delta in 85 countries, the variant Alpha is reports globally.
“In 85 countries worldwide, the Delta now reporting in all WHO regions continues in new countries, 11 of which have reported for two weeks,” added the update.
The WHO state that the four current concerns – Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta – are widely monitor throughout the WHO regions. “The variant Delta is far more transmissible than the variant Alpha and should keep current trends. And this will become a dominant lineage.”
