The Delta variant of the coronavirus has surpassed all the other so-called Voc

('variant of concern') variants and is now the "predominant" one worldwide: this was announced by ieir Maria van Kerkhove, technical manager of the World Health Organization (WHO ) for the Covid-19 crisis.

The international media reported it.

"Currently less than 1% of the Alpha, Beta and Gamma are in circulation. Worldwide it is mainly the Delta," said van Kerkhove, pointing out that this variant is so contagious that it has taken the place of all the others in circulation in the world.

Meanwhile, the doses of the anti-Covid vaccine administered worldwide have exceeded 6 billion. The AFP calculates it

. Almost 40% of the inoculations (2.18 billion) took place in China. In the ranking of countries with the most vaccinations, India (826 million) and the United States (386 million) follow. The disparities between rich and poor states remain strong. In those classified as "high income" by the World Bank, an average of 124 doses per 100 inhabitants were administered, compared to 4 doses per 100 inhabitants in "low income" ones. In 3 countries - Burundi, Eritrea and North Korea - there is also no vaccination.
