The first case of the Delta Plus variant of Covid-19 in Denmark was diagnosed this week in a passenger who traveled by plane from Portugal, announced this Saturday the Statens Serum Institut (SSI).

Covid’s case was detected on June 21, and four days later, “whole genome sequencing” revealed it to be the Delta Plus mutation.

The person in question is recovering from the illness in isolation and the other passengers on the flight are being contacted and must also remain in isolation, states in a statement the Statens Serum Institut, the Danish Institute for the Prevention of Communicable Diseases.

SSI reports that so far only one case of the Delta Plus variant has been diagnosed in Denmark.

The Delta Plus variant, a more contagious version of the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, was first discovered in India.

In Portugal, 24 cases of infection were detected by Delta Mais (or Delta Plus and also known as AY.1) – the variant of the coronavirus SarsCov2 initially known as the Nepal variant, according to data released on Wednesday.

The information has been confirmed to Renaissance by the Ricardo Jorge Institute (INSA), according to which it is not a new variant, but rather a mutation of the Indian strain, now called Delta.
