We continue to live our lives under the sign of the novel coronavirus. While experts were expecting us to get back to our normal lives after vaccination at a large scale, it seems that things are much more complicated due to the variants of covid that are popping up.
CNN just noted that the highly contagious Delta variant keeps spreading, particularly among unvaccinated Americans.
As this happens, it may be time for much of the country to put masks back on, experts said.
“We are at a very different point in the pandemic than we were a month ago,” Dr. Leana Wen told CNN on Tuesday.
“And, therefore, we should follow the example of LA County and say that if there are places where vaccinated and unvaccinated people are mixing, then indoor mask mandates should still apply.”
CNN also revealed that Los Angeles County reinstated a mask mandate over the weekend, requiring masking indoors regardless of vaccination status.
It’s been also reported that on Wednesday, the county reported a 20-fold increase in new cases over the previous month, according to the public health department.

Vaccines against the Delta corona variant
The other day, we revealed that many countries from China to Indonesia and Brazil are reportedly relying heavily on Chinese vaccines to inoculate their people against COVID-19.
Still, there are growing concerns about whether they provide enough protection against the Delta variant, first identified in India.
China’s health experts are revealing all kinds of figures about the effectiveness of home-grown vaccines against the Delta, which is becoming the globally dominant variant, and virus preventive measures China is taking.

Regarding the Delta variant, some experts have already called it “coronavirus on steroids.”
