Despite receiving two doses of the vaccine, 12 Britons died after contracting the Delta strain of the Corona virus


A new report revealed that 12 of 42 Britons have died so far after contracting the delta strain of the Corona virus, who received the two doses of the vaccine against the Corona virus. And at a time when British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is about to postpone the abolition of all restrictions to confront the Corona virus by 4 weeks, a new analysis of Public Health England revealed that 29% of deaths with the Delta strain received both doses of the vaccine.

And the “Daily Mail” stated that, in addition, the report of the authority indicated that the Delta strain had a greater ability to spread indoors by 64% compared to the Alpha strain that appeared in the British city of Kent. According to the figures, it is believed that the Delta strain has a greater ability to spread by 40% in open spaces. It is noteworthy that the Delta strain is the most common in Britain, as more than 90% of cases of the virus are currently from the Delta strain. In light of the high incidence of infection, the new report raised fears among some scientists that Britain 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 7 people received the first dose of the vaccine more than 21 days before their death. On the other hand, data showed that the effectiveness of the vaccine against infection with the delta strain is 33% after receiving one dose, and the percentage rises to 81% after receiving the second dose.
