those 52 +ve cases most likely mixed with their families.
Eventually the delta variant will be or already is in Lebanon
Vaccine still works against it
94 percent protected against hospitalization
96 percent Pfizer
92 percent AstraZeneca
Both after 2 shots
Booster are prepared to be more efficient in the next few months

It's already in Lebanon.

We don't do any sample sequencing in our labs. the Alpha variant created the Jan-Feb surge and now the delta will probably do the same in the summer.
 
vaccination rate in Lebanon is slow, we haven't even reached 20% and there is higher chance of reinfection with the new variant.

If we can't control incoming passengers then we are doomed with another wave.
Plus don’t forget the immunity by the people who got the virus
We still don’t know if the delta variant can easily overcome the British variant protection
 
is the so called Nepal variant, which is the B.1.617.2 (Delta variant) with an additional K417N mutation (it’s called AY-1 or Delta-AY.1, aka Delta Plus). India announced they found a few dozen samples of AY.1 out of a thousand samples of the usual B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant.

It was first detected March in Europe and because it is common in Nepal is was dubbed the Nepal variant. The UK first detected it in April, when they found 5 people infected with Delta-AY.1. Since then, by the middle of June, a total of 38 cases of Delta-AY.1 were found in the UK. Obviously the sky has not fallen in, it is not rapidly increasing in the UK. It has been detected worldwide:

“As of 16 June 2021, 161 genomes of Delta-AY.1 have been identified on GISAID from Canada (1), India (8), Japan (15), Nepal (3), Poland (9), Portugal (22), Russia (1), Switzerland (18), Turkey (1), USA (83).”

It is also fairly common in Portugal. A July 18th report from Portugal said that 21 out of 157 Delta cases were Delta-AY.1 (13.4%). However, this is not necessarily evidence that it’s getting more common there due to increased infectiousness, 27% of people infected with Delta in Portugal are from, you guessed it, Nepal.

“As of June 16, 2021, the Delta variant has been identified in 157 cases of SARS-CoV-2/ COVID-19 infection, 65 new cases since the last report was published. The cases were mostly male (66.9%) with a median age at diagnosis of 36.0 years (IQR: 29.0–47.0). They mostly resided in the LVT [Lisbon] region (77.7%) and the Center region (7.8%). The main nationality of the identified cases was Portuguese (52.9%), followed by Nepalese nationality (21.7%). Of the 157 cases, 21 have the additional mutation K417N [AY.1]. Following international recommendations, the presence of this mutation (which is also present in the South African-associated variant) will be properly monitored.”

The reason India got freaked over it is because K417N is the same mutation in the South African (B.1.351 Beta variant). They claim, without evidence, that it might avoid antibodies even more so that the Delta variant and it is more infectious. You cannot say this from finding a few dozen cases of it. Also, the Beta variant includes another mutation, E484K, in the receptor binding domain (RBD). Its likely that both mutations are needed to avoid antibodies.

However, the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine is effective against the Beta variant anyway (2 mutations), so it will work just as well against Delta-AY.1 (one mutation).

In Qatar, where the Beta variant is common, they found that the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine reduced infections by 75% and there were no severe cases. They vaccine still works fine, just as well as it does against the Alpha variant (UK variant that we had after Christmas).

“On 5 May 2021, a letter summarizing results from the Qatar National Study Group for COVID-19 Vaccination showed 75% effectiveness against infection, with zero cases of severe disease.”

natural immunity wanes and there is a lot of data on people getting re infected with new variants. I also think we have no data on total number of people got infected in Lebanon.

I took my first dose of Pfizer vaccine last week.
