The huge new study confirms the UK's dominant strain is not just more transmissible, it's more serious too.

A large study of Covid-19 patients has confirmed the Delta variant is more likely to land infected people in hospital.

At the time the samples used in the study were collected, there was low vaccine coverage and the Delta strain, which was imported from India, was vying for supremacy with the version first found in Kent.Health experts have long known that Delta spreads more easily and this new research adds to the growing body of evidence that it is also more serious.

The study is described as the ‘largest assessment of hospitalisation risk for the delta variant using cases confirmed by whole-genome sequencing’.
