Expect 20,000 cases a day in next 2 weeks, warns virologist

GEORGE TOWN: A virologist has warned that the daily Covid-19 infections could double up to nearly 20,000 a day within the next two weeks, given the rising number of cases caused by the more infectious Delta variant.

Universiti Sains Malaysia’s Dr Kumitaa Theva Das said based on reported data, the Delta variant was close to overtaking other variants.

Kumitaa said the number of deaths was also likely to hit 200 a day, as the health system was pushed to its brink.

She, however, said the new variant was not more dangerous compared to the others, but more deaths would occur when the healthcare system was under pressure.
