The vaccines are not working as well anymore hence the big 4th wave.
The delta variant now comprises most of the current cases in the United States and there are many more unvaccinated cases and now increasing vaccinated cases. To my knowledge, there are fleetingly few reported deaths in the US in vaccinated persons. Over the past few weeks the narrative has changed again with weaker vaccine data regarding breakthroughs.
If you have had 2 doses of an mRNA vaccine, you have a very very small risk of a significant hospitalization and almost no chance of death from the Delta variant based on statistics overall.
Being Unvaccinated now is the greatest risk factor for a negative outcome.
Most states are seeing an uptick in vaccinations as delta has changed some peoples minds.
We are continuing to see that the lambda and gamma variants are not an issue yet and likely will not be in the United States as delta is outcompeting them.
As it stands today, the United States has had 38.7 million known cases and almost 634,000 deaths. This is a significant uptick in deaths over the previous 2 week cycles. 7 day moving average on death has doubled over the past 2 weeks.
There is still no change in the knowledge that more than 80% of deaths are skewed toward the over 55 age group and 94% of all deaths occurred in a person with a co-morbid chronic health disease. More biological antibody medicines are on the horizon that may along with a mixture of vitamin A , D, zinc, quercetin and melatonin be employed for a safe resolution to COVID19.

As with the first newsletter on this topic, keep solace with the fact that there is a 99+% chance of survival for all of us regardless of vaccination. However,
mathematically, you now have a 99.9998% chance of survival once vaccinated and the vaccine safety for the mRNA vaccines continues to look good.
Why take on that extra risk?
