One of the modified delta variants is currently circulating in Great Britain, delta AY.4.2. Or also called Delta-Plus. do not worry?
What we see now was expected. The delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus now prevails across Europe. This is now changing even more. AY.4.2 is a delta variable. But there are many other modified delta variants, and they will continue to do so.
Is Delta Plus also available in Switzerland?
In this country, it has already been discovered about 50 times, but over a longer period of time. Delta-Plus is unlikely to change events significantly, like the alpha variant, which dominated Switzerland from mid-February to the end of June, or like the original delta variant that followed. These variants spread rapidly within a short period of time.
