Now comes yet another threat to the people’s health – the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Delta Plus variant.

Detected in India, Delta Plus is said to be more transmissible and potent compared to the Delta variant.

The danger this new variant possesses could lead to even tighter measures, perhaps more than an official of the Philippine Genome Center has asked the government to implement.

These are among our top stories this Wednesday afternoon, June 23, 2021.

Delivery riders, as well as tricycle drivers and operators, belonging to the A4 classification, are inoculated at the Vaccine Express, a drive-thru vaccination site, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) bay parking in Manila on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. The vaccination drive was an initiative of the Manila City Government, in partnership with the Office of Vice President Leni Robredo. (Ali Vicoy)
