COVID strain first detected in India found in 53 territories: WHO | Al Jazeera

The coronavirus variant first detected in India has now been officially recorded in 53 territories, a World Health Organization (WHO) report shows.

Additionally, the WHO has received information from unofficial sources that the B.1.617 variant has been found in seven other territories, figures in the UN health agency’s weekly epidemiological update showed on Wednesday, taking the total to 60.

The report said B.1.617 had shown increased transmissibility, while disease severity and risk of infection were under investigation.

Globally, over the past week, the number of new cases and deaths continued to decrease, with about 4.1 million new cases and 84,000 new deaths reported – a 14 percent and 2 percent decrease respectively, compared with the previous week.

The WHO’s European region reported the largest decline in new cases and deaths in the past seven days, followed by the Southeast Asia region.

The numbers of cases reported by the Americas, Eastern Mediterranean, Africa, and the Western Pacific region were similar to those reported in the previous week.

“Despite a declining global trend over the past four weeks, incidence of COVID-19 cases and deaths remain high and substantial increases have been observed in many countries throughout the world,” the document said.

The highest numbers of new cases in the past seven days were reported from India (1,846,055 – down 23 percent); Brazil (451,424 – up 3 percent); Argentina (213,046 – up 41 percent), the United States (188,410 – down 20 percent), and Colombia (107,590 – down 7 percent).
