Delta variant spreads globally as Covid cases soar

  Delta variant spreads globally as Covid cases soar With low global vaccination rates, the variant's spread is threatening to overwhelm health systems.It is expected to become the dominant variant globally in the coming months, with the WHO predicting that there could be more than 200 million confirmed cases within a matter of weeks.

#2. The “ Delta Variant ” began spreading quickly once all the vaccine injuries started to become widespread from the toxic Covid -19 vaccines. #3. Each “deadly” and more virulent “ variant ” from here on out will require a NEW vaccine or two, because the whole scamdemic is simply about using dirty Visit CovidVaccineReactions.com if you already got a toxic Covid jab or two and you are experiencing side effects, blood clots or other adverse events. Then tune your internet frequency to Pandemic.news for updates on these crimes against humanity being delivered under the guise of inoculation.

Overnight Health Care: CDC details Massachusetts outbreak that sparked mask update | White House says national vaccine mandate 'not under consideration at this time'

  Overnight Health Care: CDC details Massachusetts outbreak that sparked mask update | White House says national vaccine mandate 'not under consideration at this time' Welcome to Friday's Overnight Health Care. Add Disney and Walmart to the employers requiring employees to be vaccinated. If you have any tips, email us at nweixel@thehill.com, psullivan@thehill.com and jcoleman@thehill.com. Follow us on Twitter at @NateWeixel, @PeterSullivan4, and @JustineColeman8. Today: The CDC released data on a Massachusetts COVID-19 outbreak that triggered its updated mask recommendations. The White House said it is not considering a national vaccine requirement "at this time," and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis pledged to sign an executive order permitting parents to defy school mask mandates.

The delta variant makes up around half of all active cases. Despite this, many so-called public health experts are still encouraging people to get vaccinated to curb transmission. Christopher Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, believes one possible way the delta variant is spreading is being The current policy of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that vaccinated people not be tested for COVID -19 unless they are symptomatic. To Murray, this indicates that the CDC’s data does not show the true extent of the delta variant ’s spread.

The covid vaccine, it turns out , doesn’t really work. More specifically, it doesn’t provide non-specific immunity to even slight variations in coronavirus morphology. While natural immunity produces more “general” antibodies that work against all sorts of variants , the covid vaccine — consisting of spike protein bioweapons being injected into human guinea pigs as part of a global medical experiment — provides little or no immunity against viral variants (even assuming it works against the original strain, which is quite a leap).

As reported by Spectrum News, people were in line to get tested at around 6 a.m., hours before the site opened at 9 a.m. Barnett Park has also had to close early in recent days because it had already reached its capacity.

"Earlier, everybody was wearing masks and everything," Orange County resident Malcolm DeNeal told Spectrum News. "Now people are just going about their business without masks and crammed in everywhere, so we're worried. So, we've come to get tested."

The long queues arrived after Florida recorded 21,683 new cases of COVID-19 on July 31, breaking its previous record of 19,334 cases reported on January 7.

The surge of the Delta variant has also meant that Florida broke its record for current hospitalizations from COVID.

The Delta variant is here. First identified in India, this more transmissible form of the novel coronavirus has spread to at least 77 countries and regions and now makes up more than 20 percent of all U.S. cases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified it as a “ variant of concern.”. If vaccination rates fail to keep pace with its spread, experts say, the variant could lead to new COVID surges in parts of the country where a substantial proportion of the population remains unvaccinated.

What the Delta variant could mean for Covid -19 in the United States. "The mutation may contribute to immune escape, though its impact on transmissibility is not clear-cut," he added. Shahid Jameel, virologist and director of Ashoka University's Trivedi School of Biosciences, said the mutation "evades the The cases began in three states -- which were all placed on alert -- but have since spread to a total of eight states. The central government is urging states with cases to "enhance their public health response" by stepping up testing , tracing, and priority vaccination. "In India out of about 40,000

On Sunday, Florida had 10,207 people hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 cases, overtaking the previous high of 10,170 on July 23, 2020.

Florida Representative Anna Eskamani has requested that an additional testing site be opened in Orange County to help deal with the rise of cases.

"Constituents are struggling to get in & many can't wait several hours for a test. The Fashion Square Parking lot might be an option? Or lot across the street?" Eskamani tweeted.

Despite the surge in new cases and hospitalizations, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has insisted there will be no more restrictions or mandates imposed in the state.

Delta variant raises fears of worsening mutations

  Delta variant raises fears of worsening mutations The rapid spread of the delta variant is raising concerns among scientists that the coronavirus could mutate into more transmissible or deadlier strains.The fresh fears come as the U.S. vaccination rate has largely plateaued and with much of the world still unvaccinated. Such a large number of people without even one vaccine dose gives the virus more chances to spread, replicate and potentially develop mutations.Experts say that whileThe fresh fears come as the U.S. vaccination rate has largely plateaued and with much of the world still unvaccinated.

The Delta variant is a highly contagious variant of COVID -19. Health authorities are particularly concerned by it because it appears to be: More infectious than other variants . More resistant to health controls and preventions such as isolation. NSW Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant confirmed on Thursday that the Sydney driver who tested positive for COVID -19 had the Delta variant . Dr Chant said tests showed the driver's variant matched "perfectly" with a sequence from the United States. The driver is a man in his 60s who drives a limousine as part of his work and is involved in transporting

The Delta variant , first detected in India – which now accounts for more than 90% of new Covid cases in the UK – has raised concerns as it appears to be somewhat more resistant to vaccines than the Alpha variant that was first detected in Kent and previously dominated in the UK. Protection against severe disease is a crucial metric, not least for assessing the potential pressures a new wave of infections could place on health services. The good news is that for this outcome the jabs appear to offer similar protection against both variants .

DeSantis recently signed an executive order allowing parents to decide if their children should wear a mask in schools when classes return.

"I think that's the fairest way to do it, to let the parents have the decision. It would not be fair if we told parents who wanted the kids to wear masks they weren't allowed to do it," DeSantis said at a press conference in Cape Coral on July 30.

"But it's certainly not fair to force parents who don't believe that masks are good for their kids, to force them to have to send their kids in masks. So this way, parents are able to make the decision that's best for their families," he added.

On Sunday, DeSantis also tweeted a quote from Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor of Medicine at Stanford University, stating that further lockdowns are not required as: "We have protected the vulnerable by vaccinating the older population."

In a previous statement to Newsweek regarding the decision to not impose a mask mandate at Florida schools, DeSantis' press secretary, Christina Pushaw, said that decisions from the government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) "do not keep people safe" from COVID.

China Covid outbreak: Delta variant challenges zero infection strategy — and raises questions over its vaccine efficacy

  China Covid outbreak: Delta variant challenges zero infection strategy — and raises questions over its vaccine efficacy China's hardline zero Covid strategy is facing a fresh challenge from the rapid spread of the Delta variant, amid concerns over the efficacy of Chinese vaccines against the highly contagious strain. © Stringer/Imaginechina/AP Citizens line up at a Covid-19 testing site in Yuhuatai district of Nanjing, in eastern China's Jiangsu province, on August 2, 2021. The Delta variant, which appears to cause more severe illness and spreads as easily as chickenpox according to an internal document from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has wreaked havoc across the world.

"People in Florida are free to take any precautions they wish, from getting vaccinated, to wearing as many masks as they want, to masking their children, to avoiding crowded places, to staying home indefinitely—or even doing all of the above. But no one is 'free' to dictate how other people live their lives," Pushaw said.

Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber has criticized DeSantis' response to the surge of new COVID cases in the state, describing the governor of acting like a "pied piper leading everybody off a cliff" by telling people they can do "whatever they want when we're in the midst of an enormous pandemic."
