Identified in India, the Delta variant is also known as B.1.617.2.  This strain seems to be more contagious and resistant to vaccines than the dominant Alpha (U.K.) strain circulating in the U.S., but of course it carries a greater risk of hospitalization. Geeeez Louise, right when we begin to take off our mask and relax a little, here comes the delta variant that’s more contagious than the alpha strain. If you go down the rabbit hold and read online, you might come up on the study done by the Public Health England suggesting that delta is 60% more transmissible than alpha.

This Covid-19 strain known as delta is in at least 60 countries including the United States. If you’ve been leery of sharing a straw of sharing utensils, listen up!
