Third dose

The variant was first detected in Maharashtra in India on 5 October 2020, [3] [4] and then spread to an increasing number of samples from January 2021; in Great Britain it was first detected on February 22, 2021, in Germany in March 2021. On May 11, 2021, the World Health Organization classified the variant as high risk and said the variant exhibited increased transmissibility. The variant is partly responsible for the second wave that hit India which began in early 2021. [5] [6] [7]

Due to the high rate of contagiousness, many national governments, such as the Italian one, have banned entry to those coming from India. [8]
