Health Ministry to check for new Delta strain in past test results — TV

According to Channel 12 news, as the prime minister meets with health officials on the Delta AY4.2 variant, the Health Ministry is planning to review test results from past weeks to check whether the new strain is found in additional patients in Israel, beyond the single case found so far.

It is not clear that the strain is more problematic than Delta, but the ministry does not want to be caught unprepared if it is, the network says.
