Arkoumaneas explained that the global community is on alert and there is a concern because the specific variant is 50-60% more contagious than the first ones.

A total of 29 cases of the Delta variant have been detected in the country of which 18 were recorded in Crete island, while the rest were detected in the Attica region and Thessaloniki.

Speaking on Skai TV, Tzanakis claimed that the Indian, or Delta variant, will be dominant in the country until the end of August and did not rule out the possibility of local lockdowns.
