(ANSA) - ROME, June 11 - The Delta variant (the former 'Indian' variant) would be six times more contagious. This was underlined by a study published in Great Britain a few days before the decision on the relaxation of restrictions in the Kingdom.


   Recently the minister of health Gb, Matt Hancock, had spoken of a transmissibility of the Delta variant of 40% higher than the classic virus.


    According to the study by Public Health England, 42,323 cases were detected in the United Kingdom (compared to 29,892 a week ago) of the variant identified for the first time in India, where it represents over 90% of new cases. However, the study finds it "encouraging" that this increase in infections is not accompanied by a proportional increase in hospitalizations in the same proportions. (HANDLE).
