Colombia has detected the first case of the highly contagious Delta variant of Covid-19 when the country has just been through the deadliest wave of the pandemic.

On Saturday, President Iván Duque reported that the first contagion with this variant, identified for the first time in India, was detected in "a foreign visitor" who had been in the United States and arrived in the city of Cali.

"The person presented symptoms, the next day the review was done, then the (genomic) sequencing was done and the variant was found," Duque said in a statement to the media.

The World Health Organization (WHO) expects this lineage to become dominant in the coming months.

Until July 21, it was present in 124 countries and territories.

In Colombia, the variant was detected when "mortality, daily cases and active cases" of Covid-19 were decreasing, "Duque said.

The country went through the most critical phase of the pandemic since the detection of the first contagion in March 2020. Between the end of June and until a week ago, there were 500 deaths a day on average.

Given the high transmissibility of the Delta variant, "the message to all Colombians is: you have to get vaccinated, vaccines are massive and they are free," added the president.

99% or more survive this Chinese Communist Bioweapon. Delta in Colombia is great news because supposedly it spreads easier and that means natural herd immunity is achieved quickly. If they had never done lockdowns and just let the old fat people take their chances this Chicom plandemic would be over already and the world economy wouldn't be wrecked.

My position as of now is: let those who want the vaccine get it … as many as they want. Enough effort has been put into warning them so let them have a go at it. Maybe when they reach that magic number of immunity by vaccine (a number that keeps changing by Fauci) we, who chose to not participate in the program of body control, will be left alone in our unvaxxed state responsible onto to ourselves for that decision. As long as we have the same rights and freedoms, at this point I don’t care. I tried the warnings, took abuse for my opinion, stayed strong in my belief, I only ask to be left alone and to remain free without being dehumanized through a medical apartheid and with my medical privacy intact. Too much to ask for? Be warned, however, if I don’t get it, all cards are on the table.

Russian embassy working weekends now eh Brian? Pasting all over the place . USA needs to step up vaccinations and not listen to idiots like these scum. Many in hospital unvaccinated pleading for vaccines but its too late for them .They die in the knowledge that there was a vaccine that could have saved them and leave behind a grieving family who are desperately trying to warn of their loved ones mistake. Get the LIFE SHOT but be aware that as long as shit heads like these anti vaxers are spreading their poison on NP then there is always the risk of new variants coming up. Also please note symtoms of Delta infection are different..headache ...runny nose and sore throat...loss of smell....easy to confuse so take a PCR test to check them out . Delta is out there and you need the vaccine.

87% of the world has spoken 18 months into the scamdemic and they are saying NO TO THE KILL SHOT! This makes the criminal murderers very angry but we are winning. 3 to 6 months this KILL SHOT IS OVER because of the millions being murdered of all ages now, it is a dam broken with the latest whistelblower coming forward from the CDC reporting 45,000 murdered in only 3 days as doctors report to 11 systems where the murders are hidden from the public NOT JUST THE 1 SYSTEM WE WERE LIED TO BELIEVE EXISTED! THEN COMES THE MASS ARRESTS, PROSECUTIONS & EXECUTIONS! Those that fight against the truth still at this point are pure evil bastards...remember that when they type anything or you run into people as they are the enemy of the 87% of us in this world saying NO TO THE KILL SHOT! WE are the majority, we are strong they are the minority, they are weak.
