Delta COVID-19 strain spreads across nearly 90 countries — Russian sanitary watchdog

The Indian Delta COVID-19 strain has spread to almost 90 countries across the world, Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing’s Head Anna Popova said on Thursday.

"According to foreign experts, the new Delta [COVID-19] strain has spread to almost 90 countries," Popova stated at the 3rd International Scientific and Practical Conference ‘Global Threats to Biological Security. Problems and Solutions’.

The sanitary watchdog’s chief also mentioned that Russia managed to withstand the fight against the pandemic in March-April 2021 when Europe saw an increase in COVID-19 cases. "According to experts, we will hear about 70% of new coronavirus cases in the EU countries and the European Economic Area in the next few months," Popova said.
