There’s been a massive debate about the novel coronavirus and its origins, as well as the vaccines that are surrounded by all kinds of controversies all over the world.
CNN reveals that the US surgeon general has issued a warning for those not vaccinated: Don’t let your guard down quite yet.
“For those who are unvaccinated, they are increasingly at risk as more and more variants develop,” Dr. Vivek Murthy told CNN on Wednesday. It’s also important to note the fact that he cited the B.1.617.2, or Delta variant, first identified in India.
“The news about the Delta variant is evidence of really why it’s so important for us to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” he said, and then added that the variant is more transmissible and potentially more dangerous.
Anthony Fauci also has something to say about all this: “We don’t want to let happen in the United States what is happening currently in the UK, where you have a troublesome variant essentially taking over as the dominant variant, which has made it a very difficult situation in the UK,”

The other day, we revealed that the White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci said this Tuesday that there are more than 6% of the sequenced Covid-19 infections in the US which are due to the highly transmissible Delta variant that has been first found in India.
The Delta variant is known by the scientific name B1617.2, and it has spread from India to 60 countries, including the United Kingdom, where it has become the dominant strain; it’s also worth noting that this made up more than 60% of cases.
