Experts have concluded that a dangerous variant of coronavirus is only meant to attack America – which could affect vulnerable communities this fall. Currently, about 10% of COVID-19 cases in the US are caused by this variant.
The variant, also known as B.1.617.2, is duplicated every two weeks, according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials. In their opinion, this will be the dominant tension in the United States.
In addition, experts emphasize that this dangerous variant of covid-19 can again hinder the progress of the country.
However, this may not mean a sharp spike in infections across the country, which has received more than 309 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, but certain regions are at risk.
Meanwhile, more than 60% of adults in the United States have received at least one dose of the vaccine, but some countries have much lower rates.
Less than half of adults living in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Wyoming have received at least one dose of Covid-19, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
For States not keeping up the pace in vaccination, this new variant can pose serious risks as experts believe it is much easier to administer than its forerunners. But all is not lost as evidence shows that the vaccine against this new variant in the U.S is still effective.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are more than expected cases of heart disease in young people, mostly men, who have recently received doses of both Pfizer and Moderna-Covid19 vaccines.
This, some say, changes the benefit-risk balance of the Covid-19 vaccine. However, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will meet to discuss a possible link between vaccines and inflammatory diseases.
As vaccinations ramped up, many Americans began to return to some of their normal activities – though not all reversals went smoothly.
