Even though we have been able to find a vaccine to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, a new and highly contagious strain that is known as Covid Delta strain is now sweeping the nation among those who are vaccianted and unvaccinated. The Delta variant was first reported in India and since then, carried to various countries including the United States.
What is the importance of the Delta Variant?
We find that the Delta variant is being transmitted among the vaccianted and unvaccinated; accounting for more than 80% of new cases. Majority of cases have overall been among those in unvaccinated communities. It spreads easier in indoor settings and households.
The new Delta variant has caused a rise of hospitalizations and deaths among those who come in contact with it. From what we know so far, people who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus appear to have strong protection against Delta compared to those who aren’t. The new Delta variant can be more deadly than COVID-19 to those who are unvaccinated.
