The Delta form is wreaking havoc across most of the United States, but one researcher says the “bright lining” is that more Americans appear to be grasping the necessity of COVID-19 immunizations. Daily case rates have increased fourfold in the last two weeks, according to Collins. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this surge comes as the Delta variant spreads and the percentage of vaccinated Americans lingers around 49.6%.
As the virus spreads among the unvaccinated, hospitals are once again overflowing with patients. Vaccinations, according to experts, are the best way to protect Americans and delay or stop the spread of the illness. According to the most recent CDC data, more than 99.99 percent of those completely vaccinated against COVID-19 have not had a breakthrough case resulting in hospitalisation or death.
The surge, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is due to two factors: trustworthy leaders coming out in favour of vaccines and people seeing how much better vaccinated communities are faring against the virus.In Florida, where roughly one out of every five new COVID-19 cases is reported, Dr. Neil Finkler, chief clinical officer for AdventHealth Central Florida, said none of his patients expected to get the virus. The Delta version has proven to be so contagious that it is already infecting even the young and healthy, including pregnant patients, in our hospitals.
