The COVID-19 Delta variant has shown to be more contagious than other COVID-19 strains and infections have started to skyrocket throughout the world. New lockdowns throughout Asia have slowed manufacturing production and governments are struggling with the question of when and how to reopen their economies while mitigating increased risk.
