Delta variant is corona on steroids 

The Delta Covid variant is ruling all the other strains across the globe these days. It’s been already revealed that the Delta variant is the most dangerous one so far, according to more expert opinions across the globe. 

This highly transmissible Delta variant of the coronavirus which is causing the disease Covid 19 will soon become the dominant strain globally in the upcoming months.

The Guardian revealed just recently that reaching herd immunity is “not a possibility” considering the current Delta variant, according to the head of the Oxford vaccine Group has said.

“The problem with this virus is [it is] not measles. If 95% of people were vaccinated against measles, the virus cannot transmit in the population.”

This is what Prof Sir Andrew Pollard told the all-party parliamentary group (APPG) on coronavirus.

He continued and said the following:

“The Delta variant will still infect people who have been vaccinated. And that does mean that anyone who’s still unvaccinated at some point will meet the virus … and we don’t have anything that will [completely] stop that transmission.”

New Zealand enters lockdown

Reuters press agency just noted that “Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern put New Zealand under strict lockdown on Tuesday after the country’s first coronavirus case in six months was reported in the largest city of Auckland.”

People all over the world are simply terrified by the Delta variant of the coronavirus and this is the reason for which such drastic measures are taken.
