President Joe Biden warned Thursday that Covid deaths in the United States will continue to rise due to a new dangerous variant of the delta, calling it “a serious concern.”
“Six hundred thousand-plus Americans have died, and with this delta variant you know there’s going to be others as well. You know it’s going to happen. We’ve got to get young people vaccinated,” Biden said at a community center in Raleigh, North Carolina.
According to Joe Biden, the variant is more easily transmissible and potentially deadly. The voice should be informative because this new strain of the virus has been especially dangerous for young people with weaker immune systems.
The president warned that Americans who are still unvaccinated, in particular those with compromised immune systems or other health conditions which make them more vulnerable to the flu and its complications, have a greater chance of becoming infected.
“The data couldn’t be clearer: If you’re vaccinated, you’re safe,” Biden said. “You are still at risk of getting seriously ill or dying if you in fact have not been vaccinated, that’s just the fact.”
The delta variant of Covid has become the dominant strain in America. The rate at which it is doubling means that soon, there may be no other type left.
The delta variant is now the dominant strain in America, according to White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci who said Wednesday that it has a doubling rate of about two weeks and will become 20% of all new Covid cases in less than three months.
The agency has designated the more transmissible variant a “variant of concern."
“It's something we need to watch out for,” said an expert. Experts say that this new delta variant could also cause more severe disease in those infected but much data is still needed.
