Delta variant is highly contagious
Around 80 percent of the new COVID cases in the United States are Delta infections. As of July, this COVID-19 variant became the dominant strain in the US, being two times more contagious than the virus’s previous variants, according to the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rochelle Walensky.
In fact, experts warn that Delta is spreading 50% faster than Alpha, which was 50% more contagious than the original strain of SARS-CoV-2. In a group of unvaccinated people, a person infected with the original strain would spread it to 2.5 other people; on the other hand, in the same situation, the Delta variant would infect 3.5 or 4 other people.
Next, same but somehow still different…..

How can I get tested for the Delta Variant? I work with senior citizens and don’t want to give it to them?
These people who are afraid of the vaccine, realize after they lose a loved one they were afraid of the wrong thing. Get vaccinated! As many people say “it can’t hurt” and there’s a good chance it save somebody’s life. Along with, your hospital may have an empty bed if all the people are vaccinated. It may save somebody’s life with cancer ,stroke, or auto accident. If there are no beds because the unvaccinated fill them with covid-19 patients, they might send one of your loved ones away to die from something else. I saw several families who lost loved ones to cancer and other situations because the beds were full. How do you think they feel about you now?
Thank you for all this information
