According to the reports, the health officials it is said that the Covid cases of the Delta variant are increasing, 83% of US COVID -19 cases. From July 3, the hike in cases is observed and at that time the ration of Covid delta cases was 1:2.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky said, “The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 variants is to prevent the spread of disease, and vaccination is the most powerful tool we have.” He is the director of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, during a US Senate on Tuesday.
This widespread variant is also known as B.1.617.2, was detected in December and is spreading at a high pace, in some regions of the US, most of the infections are reported in Midwestern states such as Kansas, Lowa, and Missouri. These cases have accounted for 51.7 percent of the Covid cases in America; this is reported by the Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
On the other side, Joe Biden, the President of the USA said that the number of Covid deaths has dropped drastically due to the vaccination program but still the citizens of America need to take all the safety measures, as the Delta variant is spreading really fast in the nation. He also added that 90 percent of the cases have decreased due to vaccination.
"But we have to stay vigilant, especially with the Delta variant that's out there. While COVID-19 cases are rising, virtually all of the Covid deaths and hospitalizations are from unvaccinated people. Let me say it again: virtually all are from unvaccinated people.” He told, “the safest thing to do for the people is to get vaccinated and that's why we're focusing, on our next phase, on getting the unvaccinated vaccinated," he further stated.
The white house has made a lot of efforts to decrease the false information about vaccination, especially through social media platforms and focused more on the communities across the nation. Sources have also told that the outbreak of the Covid delta variant may be most dominant in the nation in the upcoming weeks.
The title of being the world’s most affected nation is still attained by the US and the country has reported 34,174,700 confirmed cases and over 609,500 deaths.
