In Brazil, the country with the third-highest death toll in the world, night shifts have been added to several cemeteries as diggers work around the clock to bury the dead.

Reportedly, the agency is scrutinizing cases in search of patterns "based on patient age and gender, location, type of vaccine, variants and other factors".

As the number of cases has increased, hospitals have become highly critical.

A CNN analysis of CDC data reportedly indicates that roughly 77 million people in the USA are fully vaccinated against coronavirus.

As of Tuesday, about 5,800 breakthrough cases have been reported to the CDC.

Vaccine "breakthrough" infections make up a small percentage of people who are fully vaccinated, less than one percent, according to the CDC.

Public Health England (PHE) reported that 73 cases of the B.1.617 variant, which was first discovered in India , had been found. The city of more than 20 million people now has the most daily cases in India and restaurants, malls and gyms were all closed.

"As we know more, CDC will continue to update our recommendations for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people", it says.

"It is also respectfully submitted that the marginalised sections of the population including daily wagers, labourers as well as persons falling below poverty line also form a large part of the population falling within the age group of 18 years and above", the plea contended.

Mr. Dr Tedros added that globally, the number of new cases per week has almost doubled over the past two months.

Also, the CDC said it "has developed a national COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough database where state health department investigators can now enter, store, and manage data for cases in their jurisdiction".

For the fully vaccinated, safety precautions are still important and recommended.

"We're still learning how effective the vaccines are against variants of the virus that causes Covid-19", as well as how well they keep people from spreading the disease and how long they can protect people, it says.
