The high number of coronavirus infections according to health experts is related to the delta variant which is widely circulating in Albania.
Iris Hasibra, head of the virology laboratory at IPH, says that this version has already become dominant, while there are no more signs of the original type.
“In our country, the Delta variant circulates with greater dominance. There are also cases which result of the British variant. “The previous variant from which it started and this global pandemic is not being seen so much and this has to do with the fact of the dominance of new variants that arise as a result of mutations,” said Hasibra.
Despite the significant increase in the number of infections, there has been no loss of life in Albania. According to experts, although transmitted more quickly, Delta has milder symptoms.
