COVID-19 Delta variant is dominant in the country

The World Health Organization (WHO) said that based on the recent 68.98% of the 748 COVID-19 samples sequenced by the Philippine Genome Center, the more contagious Delta variant is now the dominant variant in the Philippines.
Dr. Rabindra Abeyasinghe, WHO representative to the Philippines, also confirmed last August 31, 2021 that there is community transmission of the Delta variant, which transmits faster, and has a shorter incubation period. Community transmission occurs when sources of infection are no longer traceable due to huge numbers of cases not linked to transmission chains.
