The novel coronavirus and the terrible disease that it can trigger, Covid 19, are subjects that seem to be here to stay a little longer.
As CNN notes, we’re in the middle of the fourth wave, and although more than half of the people in the US are fully vaccinated, the Delta variant of the virus continues to terrify everyone.
Delta variant of the coronavirus continues to terrify the world
Some areas are seeing more daily infections than ever before, according to the same notes.
It’s also important to keep in mind the fact that sooner or later, this shall pass. CNN brings up in a recent article the 1918 Spanish Flu, for which there was no vaccine and which managed to infect about a third of the world. It eventually passed after three massive waves, even if the virus never fully disappeared.
As you probably already know, today’s influenza strains have scraps of its genes.
CNN brings into discussion some pretty important questions that experts are asking:
“what will happen once the Delta variant has finished infecting whomever it will infect? Will the horror show finally end? Or will there be yet another wave of yet another variant, one that can evade the current vaccines? Are we looking at an even worse lockdown than the grim pre-vaccine hunkering that we saw in 2020?”
The answers are blunt and pretty terrifying: the Delta variant is said to continue to overwhelm unvaccinated communities, according to CNN.
Even with the proliferation of vaccines, masks and social distancing, things remain pretty brought due to the new variant of the virus, but hopefully, we’ll get through this as well.
Delta variant brings terrible conclusion about herd immunity
“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 he told the all-party parliamentary group (APPG) on coronavirus.
