Want to know more about the delta variant of COVID?
The new variant is also called B.1.617.2, and it arrived in the U.S. in March. If you watch television at all, you’ll know it first emerged in India in December 2020, and since then, it has spread to more than 85 countries, according to the World Health Organization.
To make things even worse (as anything COVID-related is ever since it started), it spawned another mutation as it spread and replicated. Thanks to the vaccines, delta plus arrival in the U.S. isn’t any concern yet among the experts. But the delta variant has become the primary strain in Florida, according to the numbers.
Florida reported 22,783 COVID cases, which is a new record, according to Florida officials.
There is a positive side to it, too. As reports are stating, only 0.019% of vaccinated people are currently in hospital being treated for the virus. This means the COVID-19 vaccine is a lifesaver.
