Delta Variant

The delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 is one of the many variants of COVID-19 that is spreading around the world. The variant started to become a problem in early 2021. With travel, the variant started to spread throughout the world.

The delta variant is of concern because it is more transmissible as well as deadly. This relatively new covid variant is one of the most worrisome covid variants that currently exists.

What makes it different?

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), one of the popular stand out points of this COVID variant is its increased transmissibility.

In the United States as of September 3, 2021

157,997 ( New Cases)

150,316 ( Moving 7-day average)

884 ( Historic Cases)

This has been seen with vaccinated people as well and is thought to be due to a much higher viral load in those infected. The majority of the covid cases are of people with the delta variant. This variant could potentially cause another surge of covid cases globally.

Precautions and Vaccines

As mentioned before there have been breakthrough cases in vaccinated people, but that doesn’t mean the vaccines are useless. No vaccine is 100 percent effective. The point of the COVID vaccine is to lower your chances of getting hospitalized and lower your chances of death, but there is always a chance that you can get sick with a mild illness. Even if you don’t get sick or show symptoms of covid you could still have the virus and possibly transmit it to unvaccinated individuals. That is why it is still important to wear a mask and to continue to practice social distancing with others.

It is important to do what we can to protect ourselves as well as those around us by continuing to wear a mask, getting vaccinated, and practicing social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Newer data shows that immunity may start waning at about 8 months, but some studies are showing as soon as 6 months. Currently, booster doses are being offered to those with an immune compromised status. In a few weeks boosters should be open to the rest of the population. We hope to have vaccines available for children younger than 12 in the next few months.
