Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden has said that even though the United States has seen a dramatic drop in the number of COVID-19 deaths due to its vaccination program, the country needs to remain vigilant about the Delta variant of coronavirus.

Stressing the need for people to get vaccinated, he said “virtually all” of the Covid deaths and hospitalisations are among the unvaccinated.

The highly contagious Delta variant, also known as B.1.617.2, was first detected in India in December and is spreading quickly across the globe.

In some parts of America, the Delta strain accounts for more than 80 per cent of new infections, including some Midwestern states like Missouri, Kansas and Iowa.

Earlier this month, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had said that new Covid infections with the Delta variant account for 51.

7 per cent of the infections in the US.

Experts believe the Delta variant could be the most dominant strain in the country in the coming weeks. Local health officials say there is growing concern about the increasing number of adults and children getting infected with the Delta variant.

Biden further said the US is not just vaccinating itself but will also help the world.
