Similarly, Officials are anxious about the Delta variant, and it has provoked a strong response from the officials because the patient has neither any travel history nor any contact with quarantine facilities.
“We have seen what can happen elsewhere if we fail to get on top of it. We only get one chance. ” Said Ardern, She also Called the Delta strain “a game-changer.”
Surprisingly, The vaccination program was rather slow only 20% of people are fully vaccinated and 33% are still waiting for their second dose.
