Zaraźliwy wariant COVID-19 zwiększa liczbę zgonów w krajach Afryki

Od tygodni liczba zakażeń COVID-19 w Afryce gwałtownie wzrasta. Wariant Delta, do 60% bardziej zaraźliwy niż warianty dotychczasowe, rozprzestrzenia się na kolejne kraje kontynentu, napędzając trzecią, najbardziej śmiercionośną dla Afrykanów, falę. W jednym tylko tygodniu kończącym się 4 lipca w całej Afryce zarejestrowano ponad 250 tysięcy nowych przypadków, co uczyniło go „najgorszym tygodniem pandemii w historii".

Heros on emergency COVID-19 response
