Don’t throw away that mask quite yet.
The deadly Delta variant, now found in almost every state in the US, is causing medical experts and authorities to re-instate precautionary measures.
Doctors report that the Delta variant now accounts for one in every five coronavirus infections. And for states that have low vaccination rates, the worry is that this Fall the health system could once more be overwhelmed with patients.
In Los Angeles County, officials reinstated mask guidance for public indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status, calling it a ‘precautionary measure.’
While new research proves that vaccines such a Moderna and Pfizer provide ‘high amounts of protection against the variant’ the Delta variant is more dangerous and easily transmissible than the original strain.
