Experts tell us that the Delta variant of COVID, which is also known as B.1.617.2, is the most contagious form of the novel coronavirus. The new strain was first found in India, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that it’s a significant threat for those who arent’t vaccinated for COVID.
NPR.com writes about the warning of Anthony Fauci, who is the top infectious disease expert from the US, regarding the new Delta variant of COVID. Mr. Fauci is once again urging people to get vaccinated.
The coronavirus now “gives more serious disease”
Anthony Fauci declared:
If you are vaccinated, you’re going to be protected, which is another very good reason to encourage people strongly to get vaccinated,
If you are not vaccinated, you are at risk of getting infected with the virus that now spreads more rapidly and gives more serious disease.
According to the CDC, the Delta variant of COVID could be responsible for about 10% of all the new infections with the coronavirus from the US.
As our publication recently wrote, the Delta variant for COVID brings even more symptoms that we should worry about. Headaches and sore throat are among them, but luckily enough, there’s a lot of hope even for the grim scenario of becoming infected with the B.1.617.2 variant of COVID.
CBS News reveals that Pfizer’s CEO, Mr. Albert Bourla, is veery confident in the potential of his vaccine, as he declared:
We will not need a special vaccine for it. The current vaccine should cover it.
According to Sky News, the rising number of COVID infections with the Delta variant from the UK has caused prime minister Boris Johnson to delay lifting the lockdown restrictions in England with four weeks.
