CDC: Delta variant now makes up more than half of coronavirus cases in US

“The Delta variant, a more transmissible and possibly more dangerous strain of coronavirus, now makes up more than half of all new Covid-19 infections in the US, according to estimates from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Delta accounts for 51.7% of new infections in the US, according to the CDC. The B.1.1.7, or Alpha variant, which has dominated for months, now accounts for 28.7% of cases, the CDC said.” [editor’s note: From what I’ve been hearing, the Delta variant is more contagious but less deadly — the usual mutation path for viruses, and good news! But that MAY be incorrect – TLK] (07/07/21)
