It’s a new Delta Dawn. I’m not talking about a remake of the classic Tanya Tucker song . I’m talking about the Delta variant of Covid-19 . Much more contagious and transmissable , the Delta variant isn’t kidding around .
While people who are fully vaccinated can still get Covid including it’s variants , people who are unvaccinated are accounting for most of the recent hospitalizations and deaths due to covid .
It has never been said that getting vaccinated would keep anyone from getting Covid . What has been said is that if you are vaccinated and do get Covid, it will most likely be a milder case that would not require hospitalization.
And let’s not forget masks . Coupled with vaccination, masks provide extra armor against Covid , not to mention other airborne illnesses . Many people have said they have not gotten a cold or the flu since they started wearing masks .
With so much misinformation about the vaccines and people not wanting to get the shots or wear a mask , it’s no surprise that Covid , including it’s variants is on the rise again .
So, how can we help combat this often deadly virus ? Get vaccinated . Wear a mask . Let’s stop this new Delta Dawn . Let’s kick Covid to the curb .
