Tunisia detects six cases of Delta variant

TUNISIA has detected six cases of the Delta COVID-19 variant, first detected in India, the health ministry said, amid a rapid spread of the virus in the North African country.

After successfully containing the virus in the first wave last year, Tunisia is grappling with a rise in infections.

As cases have mounted and intensive care wards almost filled, Tunisia last week imposed a lockdown in four governates.

Tunisia has recorded 387,000 coronavirus cases and about 14,233 deaths.
