Prepare for the COVID Delta variant, Lacson to Negrenses
Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson urged residents to prepare against the more transmissible Delta variant of the Covid-19.
“It is quite alarming,” said Lacson.
Last July 16, Department of Health Region 6 director Adriano Suba-an confirmed that a couple from Pandan, Antique tested positive for the Delta variant. (https://bit.ly/36KRgXf)
“We have to be prepared as far as our hospital services are concerned,” according to the governor.
The variant, first detected in India, has been blamed as a key factor for a surge in cases not only elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific but also in the United Kingdom.
