As the new COVID Delta variant infects the nation,
learn about the new COV ID Delta Variant symptoms and how to protect yourself against the contagious virus with these preventative measures.
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 vaccinated 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 vaccinated and unvaccinated; accounting for more than 80% of new cases. The 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 in 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.
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
Muscle or body aches
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Please get tested if you experience any of these symptoms
Protect yourself and others by getting both doses of the vaccine and waiting the two-week period for the vaccine to take effect.
Wearing a facemask and standing six feet apart indoors and around crowded areas adds an extra preventative measure.
Constantly sanitizing and keeping areas disinfected.
Monitor health daily
