The Delta Variant: What You Need to Know about the New Strain of COVID-19

The CDC is fearful that the new Delta variant of the Coronavirus could become the most prominent in the U.S. this summer.


They believe it is the most transmissible strain, but fully vaccinated people should still be resistant. It is strongly encouraged for those who have not been vaccinated yet to receive their vaccines to protect against the Delta strain.


According to the latest estimate from the CDC, the variant is currently responsible for around 10% of cases in America.
