The new Delta variant is looking pretty bad. It is more infectious and more lethal.

Thanks to all those who refused to do the right thing, the virus was allowed to mutate and this is the result.

The current vaccination offers some resistance. No vaccine increases the chance of chance of death at a higher rate than the original virus.

Get vaccinated ASAP and tell everyone you know to do the same. Even with the vaccine, you can still get sick, but your chances of dying are not as high as before.

tl:dr? The new Delta variant has a much higher chance of killing everyone not vaccinated than the original virus. Get vaccinated.

Never ends. There will be variants for ever now. Like flu. What needs to change is the way we deal with this.

You are correct. Only about 5000 Americans have died from vaccines, but over 600,000 have died from the virus.

It will end when everyone is vaccinated. It will end this year.

Great work at G7, PM Suga. Have you now convinced some of the western allies that “*urging**” *is presumedly, an effective tactic in dealing with a pandemic?

Don't let the more dangerous Delta variant ruin the recent gains - nip it in the bud

The ultimate solution to this is to: Stop. Making. More. Variants.

And the way to stop making more variants in its tracks is to: Stop. Spreading. The. Virus.

Every time the virus spreads, the more chances we give it to create even more new variants

So stop spreading the virus

Dunno why people wanna keep spreading the virus and create more variants
