The novel coronavirus seems to be here to stay. There are more variants popping up around the world and one of the most dangerous ones is the Delta variant. We already reported that there are some issues regarding the covid vaccines as well.
It seems that the advisers to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention heard that the agency had received about 1,200 reports of such heart inflammation after 300 million doses of the two vaccines had been given. The same article notes that CDC has confirmed about 300 of those cases, many of them among young men and adolescents.
Also, we addressed Pfizer’s experimental oral drug that treats Covid-19 at the very first sign that will be available by the end of this year.
Fauci drops breaking coronavirus news
The Hill online publication notes that Anthony Fauci on Sunday said more than 99 percent of the people who died from COVID-19 in June were not vaccinated, calling the loss of life “avoidable and preventable.”
“If you look at the number of deaths, about 99.2 percent of them are unvaccinated. About 0.8 percent are vaccinated. No vaccine is perfect. But when you talk about the avoidability of hospitalization and death, Chuck, it’s really sad and tragic that most all of these are avoidable and preventable,” Fauci told host Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
He added the following: “I mean, obviously there are going to be some people, because of the variability among people and their response to vaccine, that you’ll see some who are vaccinated and still get into trouble and get hospitalized and die. But the overwhelming proportion of people who get into trouble are the unvaccinated. Which is the reason why we say this is really entirely avoidable and preventable.”
Todd also noted that nearly 10,000 people in the U.S. died from COVID-19 in June.
