The most recent cluster of cases is related to the DELTA variant. From the analysis of this cluster, Public Health has learned that this variant causes a more widespread transmission at a much quicker pace. Double vaccination is demonstrated in the literature to be most effective in protecting individuals from hospitalization and death, especially in the face of COVID-19 variants.
