Vaccines and the Variants of Covid19

A Scottish study published in the Lancet medical journal on Monday showed that the risk of hospitalization from the Delta variant was approximately double that of the Alpha variant, especially in respondents with five or more severe medical comorbidities, e.g., diabetes, asthma, heart disease, cancer, and chronic kidney disease.

Two doses of Pfizer or AstraZeneca‘s COVID-19 vaccine are nearly as effective against the highly transmissible Delta coronavirus variant as they are against the previously dominant Alpha variant, a study published on Wednesday showed.

To protect yourself and your loved ones against Covid19 in all it’s forms, continue wash your hands, wear a mask, and get vaccinated. The world is seeing the rise in the number of infections as the Delta variant takes a foothold. As we think out our neighbours, our first thoughts must be to protect them the same way we would protect ourselves. The best way to do that is to get vaccinated.
