They have therefore been classified as a “previously circulating strain of concern” by WHO on Tuesday.Delta and Omicron strains are included in the “circulating strains of concern” category.On the same day, the “watch out” mutated strains Ramda and Miu were added to the “watch out for previously circulating strains” because no cases had been reported in the past 90 days.According to the latest data on the WEBSITE of the Who, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the world rose by 1,413,309 to 45,8479,635 as of 17:56 Cet on Sunday (00:56 GMT on Saturday).The number of deaths rose by 3,805 to 6,047,653.
