The Delta variant continues to spread across the country just as Americans were preparing to return to normalcy after the wide availability of coronavirus vaccines. Those in the U.S. returning to the workplace or sending their children back to school in the fall are given pause now by the highly infectious variant of COVID-19 that is bringing with it a surge in cases and hospitalizations. Physician and Dean of Public Health at Brown University, Dr. Ashish Jha joins to explain why COVID-19 booster shots may become an important tool for protecting the most compromised Americans, how the improvement of international vaccination efforts will lead to fewer variants, whether requiring masks in schools will be necessary and the importance of medical professionals addressing the concerns of those who are vaccine hesitant.
We’ve been hearing more and more about breakthrough infections lately especially with the new Delta variant. People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are still getting the virus. While the vaccine is not 100% effective, people who have been diagnosed with the coronavirus even if they are fully vaccinated have been experiencing mild cases, but the vast majority of them have not been hospitalized or died. Host of the “Guy Benson Show” on FOX News Talk, Guy Benson was one of those breakthrough cases. He joins to discuss his symptoms, what made him believe he might have been infected despite being fully vaccinated and what he’s learned from the experience.
