If you have been keeping up to date with the news, then you will find that in the last one week, the number of cases of coronavirus-affected people in the UK has constantly been rising. It is among the new cases of the coronavirus that 99% of them are the Delta variant. There has been a steady growth in the number of these delta variant coronavirus infection cases. It has been recorded too.

According to Public Health England, the number of confirmed cases of the delta variant has risen from 33,630 last week to 75,953 this week. On 18 June, Soumya Swaminathan, who is the World Health Organization (WHO) chief scientist, told a news conference that the delta variant is “well on its way to becoming the dominant variant globally”.

99% of Coronavirus Cases in UK of Delta Variant

“This variant that has now taken over from the alpha [variant] is clearly significantly more infectious,” said Adam Finn, member of the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, told the BBC. “Regrettably, it is more likely to end you up in hospital if you’re unlucky enough to get it.”

“The one bit of good news around this is that the rate of rise of hospitalisations is not as fast as the rate of the rise in cases. So we are preventing a lot of hospitalisations with the vaccine programme, but not all of them,” said Finn, adding that “now is the time to get immunised”.

So the mass needs to get vaccinated as soon as possible. That seems to be the only way now. As it had always been the motto, prevention is better than cure. So if you have not got the vaccine yet, hurry!
