NPR reported, “The highly contagious delta variant is on the rise in the U.S.“. The threat of a new variant of COVID-19 has people once again in fear as the media continues to hype it up, but is it really a threat? Doctor Anthony Fauci says yes. The news is just what is needed by the left to extend the pandemic a few more months. Fauci warns that the variant could be the dominant strain in America and we should not let that happen.
“In the U.K., the Delta variant is rapidly emerging as the dominant variant,” Dr. Fauci said of the variant of the virus that originated in India. But should we panic?
According to Doctor Scott Gottlieb, the virus is a more dangerous variant, but two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine should be enough to protect Americans. Gottlieb said the overwhelming number of people getting sick from the delta variant were either unvaccinated or had only one dose of the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.
Dr. Gottlieb also explained the U.K.’s rollout of only a single vaccine shot as a contributor to the higher number of cases in that country.
“That probably opened the door to this spreading a little more widely,” Gottlieb said. “It is here, we’re seeing it here at low levels. The question is are there enough unvaccinated people for it to get into the population. I happen to think it’s unlikely for this to be a threat until the fall.”
