Covid Delta Variant: Just How Worried Should I Be?

This makes me feel better. But then my husband called me from San Francisco. He told me that three of his fully vaccinated friends had contracted the virus from an unvaccinated person who was showing symptoms. They were all fine, but had flu-like symptoms. I understand this is to be expected, but it doesn’t make it any less scary. We spent the whole year watching people die from Covid; it’s a huge mental leap to adjust to the idea that vaccinated people can get Covid and be basically fine.

Doctor Eric TopaI explain what could happen here in the US: “I’m pretty concerned that we’re going to see a huge increase in cases, like in the UK, because we have even less covered vaccines. more guarded and run parallel to them. That means Covid is a lot longer. And even with a significant reduction in hospitalizations and deaths, there will be a significant number of hospitalizations and deaths. We’ll get over it, but it’s definitely going to hurt. Be confident, but be wary if you are fully vaccinated.” In the end, all these doctors told me the same thing, this Delta variant can be quite harmless if you are fully vaccinated with the mRNA vaccines and if you are not immunocompromised. Israel has third Covid vaccination for the immunocompromised and the elderly.

These doctors made me feel less anxious. However, after a year plus the pandemic, I’m still pretty worried. So despite the fact that My family is fully vaccinated, I will be careful. Despite the assurances from my doctors that I will probably be fine, I still want to avoid catching the Delta variant, so I will continue to wear a mask indoors in places where there are a lot of people or in places where there are high rates of infection. low vaccine. Like Dr. Jonathan Reiner told me, “It depends on where you live and what your home situation is like. If you live in a place with a lot of unvaccinated people (like Missouri, Florida, Arkansas, Mississippi, etc.) This causes a high viral load. . If you have kids at home who can’t be vaccinated because they’re too young, I’d hide them in public as well. This weekend, I said in the broadcast that I think we should restore universal masking. Not so much to protect the vaccinated but to protect the unvaccinated.”

We’ve come a long way in the past year and a half, life is very different compared to in March 2020 when I usually listen Screaming ambulances on New York City Avenue. We don’t have many special pages obituary newspaper sections as well. Sometimes it feels like the end of a pandemic is at hand, and rightfully so. We just need to hold on a little longer.
