Covid-19’s Delta Variant Now Declared a Significant Threat

The Covid-19’s Delta variant has now been declared as a significant threat and the most contagious strain to date. The variant was first discovered in India, and according to the Center for Disease Control in the United States, it may be responsible for almost ten percent of all new COVID-19 infections in the US. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases stated in a media interview, quote, “if you are vaccinated, you’re going to be protected, which is another very good reason to encourage people strongly to get vaccinated, because 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.” End of quote. Dr Fauci went on to note that a very recent study has shown that the Delta variant is a more dangerous virus as it can potentially make people more severely ill and it has the ability to spread easier and quicker. For those who have been fully vaccinated, it is yet to be determined how long-lasting the efficacy of the jab is. Dr Fauci indicated that clinical trials are currently underway to see if at any point fully vaccinated persons may have to get a booster shot.
