large number
7.77%. According to the Mayo Clinic, this is the increase in the positive rate of Covid in the United States. This is more than four times the positive rate in mid-June, when the positive rate was about 1.65%. Key background of
The highly infectious Delta variant of
has been recognized by the CDC as the major strain of Covid19 in the United States, prompting a renewed call for unvaccinated people to be vaccinated. According to the CDC, nearly 68% of adults in the United States have received at least one Covid injection, but vaccination rates vary widely across the country. Mississippi has the lowest rate, with only about 37% of residents receiving injections. This is a particularly disturbing number because the state’s health official, Dr. Thomas Dobbs, tweeted last week that Delta Airlines accounted for “almost all cases” in Mississippi. US health officials are also concerned that young people are highly hesitant to vaccines, because the Delta variant seems to cause more severe Covid cases among young people than other strains. Vaccines still seem to be very effective in preventing Delta variant infections, but the high transmission rate has raised concerns that there may be more “breakthrough cases”-Covid19 cases in the fully vaccinated population.
Surprising facts
World Health Organization officials said last month that fully vaccinated people should wear masks and maintain social distancing in public to combat the Delta variant, but the CDC disagrees. The CDC guidelines say that only unvaccinated people can wear masks, and fully vaccinated people can largely return to their pre-pandemic lifestyle.
