Health experts are expressing concerns about the increasing spread of COVID-19 variants, such as the Delta, Gamma, and Lambda variants. The World Health Organization (WHO) has been closely monitoring these variants, which have been linked to surges in cases and increased hospitalizations.
In recent weeks, the Delta variant has become a dominant strain in several countries. In Africa, for example, the variant has been responsible for a devastating surge in cases. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom has seen an increase in infections due to the Delta variant, which has prompted the government to tighten restrictions.
The spread of these variants is also causing concern as the Tokyo Olympics approach. Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government have been implementing strict COVID-19 measures to prevent outbreaks during the international sporting event. Health officials, including the Health Minister of Japan, are closely monitoring the situation and working to ensure the safety of athletes and participants.
Several countries, including Australia, Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and the United States, have implemented travel restrictions and increased testing to prevent the spread of the variants within their borders.
