Delta variant is more prevalent in vaccinated people: study
The Delta variant may cause the presence of the virus in those who have been vaccinated as well as those who have not according to a new study. The study was conducted by the U.S. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention. The study was conducted on 469 Covid patients in Massachusetts, Xinhua news agency reported.
The study found that when the Delta strain entered the body, SARS-Cov-2 virus infection was more prevalent in vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals. The researchers said 346 of the 469 people had been vaccinated. CDC Director Rochelle Valensky said similar levels of SARS-CoV-2 delta infection were found in both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals.
Rochelle added that, unlike other variants, people who have been vaccinated against Delta are concerned that the virus could be transmitted. The CDC recommends that masks should be used in schools and indoor events in the United States. It is recommended that people who are immunocompromised or vaccinated wear a mask to prevent infection.
