Director Rochelle Walensky, the Delta variation is the second most common coronavirus mutation in the United States and is expected to overtake it in the coming weeks.

"Delta variants account for an estimated 25% of all recorded SARS-COV-2 sequences countrywide, and nearly one in every two sequences in some parts of the country," Walensky said, according to Sputnik.

Walensky, speaking at a press conference, also emphasised the link between poor vaccination rates and the spread of the Delta strain. The Delta coronavirus strain is thought to be the fastest spreading and most contagious coronavirus variety, according to research.

The WHO Regional Director for Europe, Dr Hans Henri Kluge, said on Thursday that a 10-week reduction in the number of COVID-19 cases in the 53 nations of the WHO European Region had come to an end.

"This is happening in the context of a fast shifting scenario; a new variety of concern - the Delta variant; and in a Region where millions remain unvaccinated despite significant efforts by Member States," he added.

According to UN News, the Delta variety of COVID-19 has spread to 16 countries and is present in three of the five countries reporting the greatest caseloads, with cases doubling every three weeks in Africa. The variety is the most contagious yet, with transmission rates up to 60% higher than prior variants.

According to the WHO, Delta, together with Alpha and Beta, is fueling an aggressive third wave across Africa, with case numbers growing faster than all previous peaks.

WHO specialists cautioned on Thursday that the number of positive cases has been rising for six weeks in a row, with a 25 percent increase last week, bringing the total to 202,000. Deaths in 38 African countries increased by 15% to approximately 3,000 people.

Meanwhile, Soumya Swaminathan, the WHO's head scientist, has stated that all COVID-19 vaccines licenced by the WHO are effective in avoiding serious sickness and death caused by the extremely contagious Delta strain.

"The good news is that all of the WHO-approved vaccines for emergency use protect against severe sickness, hospitalisation, and death caused by the Delta form," Swaminathan added.
