Israel detects 1st case of COVID-19 Delta variant "AY4.2".

The first case of the new COVID-19 Delta variant "AY4.2" was detected in Israel on Tuesday (19th), the country's Ministry of Health said. 

This is the variant that was previously detected in several European countries, the ministry noted. It was diagnosed in an 11-year-old boy, who underwent a coronavirus test at Ben Gurion International Airport outside Tel Aviv, upon his return from Moldova.

"AY4.2", which some are calling “Delta Plus”, contains mutation that might gives the virus survival advantages.
