WASHINGTON – The COVID-19 Delta Variant could be weeks away from becoming the most dominant variant in the country.

Health experts say it spreads more easily and could be more dangerous.








It’s the same variant that ravaged India and now it’s been identified in more than 85 countries, including the United States. Which is why world leaders are working together to ramp up global vaccine distribution.

But right now, less than 11 percent of people around the world are fully vaccinated.









In the U.S., more than 46 percent of people have been fully vaccinated, But Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Wyoming are among the states with the lowest vaccination rates.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, Former FDA Commissioner says going forward, “it’s going to be hyper-regionalized where there are certain parts of the country we can have very dense outbreaks.”















One health expert is calling for more of a grassroots, bottom-up campaign, to get more people vaccinated, by empowering local leaders and doctors to reach out to their own communities.
