Vaxxines are failing, the vaxxed can be super-spreaders; U-turn on masks for everyone

Vaccinated people infected with the Indian ‘Delta’ variant have the same viral levels as the unvaccinated infected with this variant, Dr Anthony Fauci said, citing this unreleased data

This means vaccinated people can easily spread Delta, Dr Fauci said

People infected with Delta may have 1,000 more copies of the coronavirus in their bodies compared to those infected with older strains, one study found.

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Protection spoke on Wednesday about evidence that vaccinated people can spread the Covid-19 Delta variant to others, after the nation’s top health agency expanded on its new guidance that fully vaccinated Americans wear masks indoors in certain places.

Rochelle Walensky said “new science” observed in recent days demonstrated that new variants of the coronavirus were transmissible by people who have been fully vaccinated in some cases.

The CDC revised its mask guidance on Tuesday to recommend fully vaccinated Americans wear masks in “public indoor settings” with “substantial and high transmission”, a shift from its earlier guidance issued on 13 May, which said vaccinated individuals did not need to wear masks in most indoor settings.

Fully vaccinated adults should continue to wear masks when inside public places in areas where there are high numbers of coronavirus infections, US Centres for Disease Control Director Dr Rochelle Walensky said in a media call.
