Mapping the latest spike
The map depicts the biweekly growth rate in new confirmed COVID-19 cases as on June 28, 2021. The rate measures the % change in the new confirmed cases over the last 14 days relative to the number in the previous 14 days.
The chart shows the share of COVID sequences that are the Delta variant at the end of every two-week period. It is important to note that only a fraction of all cases are sequenced. It can be seen that most countries that recorded a significant increase in the case levels (darker shade in map) also saw in parallel a surge in Delta cases.
The table lists the effectiveness of select vaccines against COVID-19 infection from the Delta variant and related hospitalisation in various studies across countries. While the effectiveness reduced considerably at the infection level, hospitalisations due to the Delta variant reduced considerably after the shots.
