However, if more people are affected, a certain number will end up in the hospital, which will increase the pressure on services. “While delta is already high in concentration, it is true that a small increase can have a major impact on hospitalization and resuscitation.”, Details Professor Gilles Bylox, Head of the Department of Infectious Diseases at Tennon Hospital in Paris.
