The issue of getting the coronavirus vaccine vs. natural immunization remains a stringent debate among people these days. There are obviously a lot of opinions expressing the multiple benefits of vaccination, and the anti-vaxxers respond with arguments regarding the vaccines side effects.

This is definitely a battle that will not end soon while the world is still struggling with the terrible novel coronavirus and its various variants and mutations. 

CNN reports that vaccination rates are still not at the threshold needed to stop the spread of Covid-19, and it also seems that most Americans who are unprotected will likely contract the rapidly spreading Delta variant, one expert said.

BBC noted that four in 10 of those between 19 and 49 developed problems with their kidneys, lungs or other organs while treated.

The most serious virus of our lifetimes 

“And for most people who get this Delta variant, it’s going to be the most serious virus that they get in their lifetime in terms of the risk of putting them in the hospital,” Dr Scott Gottlieb, commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration during the Trump administration, told CBS’ “Face the Nation” just the other day.

As it’s also been they reported, Delta is the most transmissible Covid-19 variant yet, US Surgeon General Dr Vivek Murthy told CNN. Unfortunately, experts say it is exacerbating the rise in cases among unvaccinated Americans.

Here’s a terrifying opinion about the Delta variant.

“This year’s virus is not last year’s virus,” said Dr Catherine O’Neal, an infectious disease specialist at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

“It’s attacking our 40-year-olds. It’s attacking our parents and young grandparents. And it’s getting our kids,” O’Neal said.

She also said her Covid-19 unit now has more patients in their 20s than previously during the pandemic.

We have also been addressing the Delta variant during these past weeks, and people are still freaking out even among the vaccinated ones when it comes to this subject.

Stay tuned for more news, and make sure to stay safe.
