Hello, Salem!

You might want to read this article, which says “The Highly Contagious Delta Variant of COVID That Ravaged India s Spreading in the U.S.  … The highly contagious Delta variant of COVID-19 that spread rapidly in India … has been found in more than 6% of cases in the U.S., and may be the cause of more than 18% in some parts of the country.

And, “the variant may be “associated with increased disease severity” and a higher risk of hospitalization from COVID-19, but that the vaccines have been effective against it.”

This gives us further reason to stay safe, and always, be kind.
