The Delta Variant is a highly contagious variant of COVID-19. Many health officials are worried because it’s more infectious than other COVID-19 variants. According to cnbc, “studies suggest delta is around 60% more transmissible than alpha, the variant first identified in the U.K. which was more contagious than the original strain that emerged from Wuhan, China, in late 2019.” It was the variant that was identified in India and has now become the dominant strain of COVID-19 worldwide. It is also linked to the outbreak in Victoria, Australia. Brett Sutton, the Victorian Health Chief Officer confirmed in early June that it was the cause of a coronavirus case.
