Coronavirus variant after delta: Are we at risk of a super-mutation? Leading virologists from the United States warn!

If the virus continues to spread and change, there is a risk that a variant will eventually evolve from which current vaccines – unlike Delta – do not protect us. A prominent health expert and presidential adviser warned of the need to control the epidemic in an interview with NBC Television. The best way to do this is with vaccinations. Mandatory vaccination at the local level would help.

The non-vaccination epidemic

Francis Collins, director of the US National Institutes of Health’s research agency, warned that compulsory vaccination could make a difference. He told ABC on Sunday that the country was paying a “heavy price” for not vaccinating many. The consideration of introducing compulsory vaccination on a larger scale is the subject of heated political disputes in the United States. President Joe Biden recently spoke of a “vulnerable epidemic.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), half the population is now fully vaccinated.

As a result of variable delta expansion, the number of new coronavirus infections in the United States rose sharply again – to about 100,000 cases on average over a seven-day period. The situation is particularly tense in countries with low vaccination rates. In the second half of June, the seven-day average was about 11,000 new cases per day. The United States last recorded an average of 100,000 new infections each day in February.
