    Delta variant

    The CDC has now said this a variant of concern for the US.

    My friends across the pond, what are you seeing with this variant? I believe it is the dominant strain in the UK now.

    It's important to remember that here in the US, the delta variant is really only spreading through those who are unvaccinated. So get all adults vaccinated, and use precautions like masks and social distancing around children until they can be vaccinated.

    I read that too and thus far, those that are vaxxed appear to have protection. It's those that aren't that are at the most risk.

    It does seem to be spreading quite rapidly, but so far due to the vaccine programme this hasn't translated into vastly increased hospital admissions.

    Hospital admissions is the main area of concern for me, if the hospitals get too full then the government will put in measures to stop the spread.

    So far so good.

    I don't think that there's been too much information released about the double vaxxed who have been hospitalised here but I'm sure there soon will be because questions will inevitably be asked as numbers aren't negligable.

    Yes, 99% of cases are now Delta! It is spreading a lot in the unvaccinated population but luckily nearly all vulnerable people have been fully vaccinated. Have you had yours yet Nancy? I'd really recommend doing it if not in the face of this variant, vaccines are very effective against it.
