The unvaccinated are going to die as the Delta variant spreads.
>Delta variant’s wild spread raises fears, fresh scrutiny of CDC mask guidance States with low vaccination rates are already seeing a delta surge.: Delta, on the other hand, is estimated to be 50 percent to 60 percent more contagious than Alpha. That is, it may be more than twice as contagious as the original virus. COVID-19 vaccines are, fortunately, still effective against the delta variant, but many experts are extremely anxious about the risk the variant poses to areas with low vaccination rates. Already, some of the states with low vaccination rates and high transmission rates are seeing cases of delta take off. Though the CDC hasn't made any movement on its guidance, health officials in other countries and local US officials have begun reinstating masking and other measures. For instance, Israel, one of the most highly vaccinated countries in the world, reinstated an indoor mask mandate this week. And on Monday, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health urged people to mask up in indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status.
