“Even as people began to feel some hope—or at least cautious optimism—early around June/July this year, that the pandemic could recede to the background, there was still the threat that new mutations of the COVID-19 virus could bring it back, and it might be even stronger.
A major worry right now is Delta variant, a highly contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus strain, which was first identified in India in December. It swept rapidly through that country and Great Britain before reaching the U.S., where it is now the predominant variant.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) described Delta as more transmissible than the common cold and influenza, as well as the viruses that cause smallpox, MERS, SARS, and Ebola—and called it as contagious as chickenpox in an internal document, a copy of which was obtained by and reported on in The New York Times. The highest spread of cases and severe outcomes is happening in places with low vaccination rates”. – YALE MEDICINE
If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic, but still, make sure you follow the steps listed below to prevent the spread.
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Learn how COVID-19 spreads and practice these actions to help prevent the spread of this illness.
The new variant, B.1.617.2 (delta) of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is about twice as transmissible as the original virus which to some findings destroys the respiratory organs quicker.
Recent hospitalizations and deaths have also shown that people that were fully vaccinated against the virus still got infected with this new variant, and a worrying number of the fully vaccinated group have lost their lives to the Delta variant.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
- Wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19.
- Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you.
- Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
- Get a COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available to you.Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces daily. If someone is sick or has tested positive for COVID-19, disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
- Monitor your health daily.
To complement the prevention strategies listed above, in addition to full vaccination of the individual, it may be advisable, after checking with their doctors (especially those with underlying health conditions), to apply the remedy in the video at least twice a day. This treatment is very popular among African nurses that work with covid19 patients in the US.
