Australia finds ‘highly transmissible’ COVID variant in Melbourne

 MELBOURNE:Australian authorities in the southeastern state of Victoria have detected a “highly transmissible” variant of the deadly coronavirus, stoking concerns of a major spike in cases.

Authorities in Victoria said on Friday that the Delta COVID-19 virus variant has for the first time been detected through genomic sequencing among infections in the latest outbreak in Melbourne, the state capital and Australia’s second-biggest city.

“That variant is the Delta variant, it is now  increasingly found in the United Kingdom. It is a variant of significant concern,” Victoria state Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton told reporters in Melbourne.

 

 

 The Delta variant has been classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as among the four COVID-19 variants of concern due to evidence that they spread more easily.

The highly infectious variant was said to have been detected in two members in a family who travelled from Melbourne to neighboring New South Wales (NSW) in late-May and visited several popular tourist locations in the state's south.

Australia reports over 30,100 cases and 910 deaths.
