This variant, which first appeared in India, is now present in 124 countries and territories, with the alpha strain from the UK present in 180 countries, the beta strain from June Africa 130 and the gamma strain from Brazil in 78 countries.
The WHO predicts that the delta strain will quickly overtake other variants of the Koran and will be the dominant variant in the coming months.
The agency also predicts that the number of people infected with the coronavirus will exceed 200 million in the coming weeks.
The reasons given by the WHO are the strains of the viruses that are transmitted, the abolition of the measures against the epidemic, the greater social interaction and the insufficient number of vaccinated.
