The World Health Organization says the Delta variant of COVID-19 has been identified in 85 countries and is spreading rapidly in unvaccinated populations around the world.
Indonesia registered a record 21,000 cases on Saturday, while Russia reported 619 COVID-19 deaths, its highest number this year.
It has even pushed Australia’s biggest city Sydney to order a two-week lockdown.
