COVID-19 Variants UpdateJenny Abercrombie
COVID-19 Variants, particularly those named Variants of Concern, are increasingly posing a greater risk to countries throughout the world, including the US and Canada. Currently, the Delta Variant (aka B.1.617.2), which has rampaged India, has very rapidly become the dominant variant in the UK, replacing the previously dominant Alpha Variant (B.1.1.7). It is rapidly gaining the same ground in the US and some experts expect it to be dominant in the next month.
This article discusses the Variants and looks specifically at the Delta Variant. And, for something new, includes some Tweets from experts, with data & comment on the Variants. There is also a list of resources & links for a deeper dive into the information.
