Big spike in Delta Variant cases in the US due to Vaccine Hesitancy

    US cities are reporting big spike in Coronavirus Delta Variant infection spike, according to Dr Ashish Jha, Dean, Brown University School of Public Health, that the cause of concern is vaccine hesitancy and the number of people in the United States refusing to take COVID-19 vaccines resulting in a rapid rise in coronavirus spread.

    Dr Jha further said : “Vaccination is low in large parts of the US and those areas are witnessing a spike in COVID-19 cases, mostly driven by the Delta variant.”

    Explaining the pattern of coronavirus impacting population in the US he said that there are two very different sets of experiences in America vis-à-vis the virus. In certain parts of the United States, where 85 to 90 percent of adults are vaccinated, such as Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the COVID-19 case count is very low.

    Arkansas, Ohio, and Wyoming, are the places where most people have chosen not to get vaccinated. Such areas and communities have seen a very large spike in COVID-19 cases, dominated by the Delta variant.

    Dr Jha added, at present, 70-80 percent of coronavirus infections in the US are of the Delta variant and they are concentrated among the unvaccinated community.
