Fauci Says Risks From The Delta Variant Underscore The Importance Of Vaccines : Coronavirus Updates : NPR
Fauci Says Risks From The Delta Variant Underscore The Importance Of Vaccines : Coronavirus Updates : NPR: What Fauci says on NPR: Some studies have recently come out essentially documenting that indeed, this particular variant does transmit significantly more readily between people and among people than the virus that is now the dominant virus, which is the Alpha variant, which is the one that's more dominant in the United States. In addition, a very recent data — literally yesterday and the day before — shows that, in fact, it is a more dangerous virus in the sense that it can potentially make people more severely ill. So the combination of more transmissibility and a greater severity of disease appropriately prompted the CDC to elevate it to a variant of concern. I feel sorry for Fauci, because he has to go in front of the nation and say, repeatedly, "We don't know what's going on right now, and by the time we do, it will be too late." Not a fun gig.
