At a time when British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is on the verge of delaying the lifting of all restrictions to confront the Corona virus for four weeks, a new analysis of Public Health England revealed that 29 per cent of deaths with the “delta” strain received both doses of the vaccine.
And the British newspaper “Daily Mail” stated that, in addition, the authority’s report indicated that the “Delta” strain had a greater ability to spread indoors by 64 percent compared to the “Alpha” strain, which appeared in the British city of Kent.
According to figures reported by the authority, it is believed that the “Delta” strain that appeared in India has a 40 percent greater ability to spread in open spaces, according to the German news agency.
It is noteworthy that the “delta” strain is now the most common in the United Kingdom, as more than 90 percent of cases of HIV infection are currently from this strain.
With cases of infection rising, the new report raised fears among some scientists that the United Kingdom could witness a third outbreak of the virus.
Of the 42 Britons who died as a result of infection with the “delta” strain of the Corona virus, 12 people received two doses of the vaccine, while 23 people did not receive the vaccine, while seven people received the first dose of the vaccine more than 21 days before their death.
On the other hand, the authority’s data showed that the effectiveness of the vaccine against infection with the “Delta” strain is 33 percent after receiving one dose, and the percentage rises to 81 percent after receiving the second dose.
