By Benjamin Flowers: Despite being vaccinated, more than 350 doctors and medical workers in Kudus, Indonesia have contracted the Delta Variant of COVID-19, Reuters reports.

The Indonesian Medical Association (IDI) said that almost all the medical workers received the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Chinese biopharmaceutical company Sinovac, which received emergency approval for use by the World Health Organization (WHO) back in May.

Badai Ismoyo, head of the health office in the district of Kudus in central Java said that the majority of the infected were asymptomatic and self-isolating at home; however, dozens were hospitalized with high fevers and falling oxygen-saturation levels.

The incident has reportedly caused concerns in the international medical community about the efficacy of vaccines on emerging variants of the virus.

Kudus, which has about 5,000 healthcare workers, is in crisis as the Delta variant, which is far more transmissible than the initially discovered strain of COVID-19, raised hospital bed occupancy rates above 90%. This comes at a time where Indonesia grappling with one of the worst outbreaks in all of Asia, with over 1.9 million infections and 53,000 deaths, its doctors and nurses have suffered a heavy toll of 946 deaths.

The COVID-19 Delta Variant was discovered first discovered in India in March 2020. Since it’s discovery, international organizations monitoring the pandemic have determined that it has spread to over 80 countries, and is now the dominant strain of the virus being detected in the United Kingdom. Reports are that the Delta Variant now accounts for 10 percent of total COVID-19 cases in the United States as well.
