ED: WERE HEARING A LOT MORE ABOUT THESE RARE BREAKTHROUGH INFECTIONS, ESPECIALLY LOCALLY IN PLACES LIKE PROVINCETOWN. DOES THAT MEAN THE HEALTH RISK FOR VACCINATED PEOPLE IS INCREASING, O?TO >> > > WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THIS VARIANT IS THAT IT IS MORE VACCIS and contagious NEHAVE REDUCED EFFECTIVENESS AGAINST INFECTION. YOU CAGEN T THE VIRUS ON THE BACK OF YOUR NOSE COME YOU CAN TRANSMIT IT TO HEOTR PEOE, PL BUT IF YOURE VACCINATED, THE RISK IS MUCH LESS. The Bright Side IS YOU ARE LESS LI GHTLY TOET G HOSPITALIZED, YOU ARE LESS LIKELY TO GET SEVERELY ILL, YOU ARE LESS LIKELY TO DIE. WE ARE HEARING MORE CASES– WE EXPECT TO SEE THAT. HOPEFULLY THOSE WILL NOT END UP IN THE HOSPITAL. MAA: RI I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE BELIEVED YOU GET THE VACCINELE COME YOU GET BACK TO NORMAL, NO MASKS, NO STAY-AT-HOME ORDS, ER THEY ARE LIFTED, THERE ARE NO TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS.

YOU ARE RIGHT. WE ARE NOT BACK TO NORMAL. THE RECENT RECURRENCES ARE DISCOURAGING. BUT REMEMBER, KIDS ARE GOING BACK INTO THE CLASSROOM. YES, THEY MAY BE GOING BACK INTO THE CLASSROOM WITH MASKS, MAYBE BOTH VACCINATED AND UNVACCINATED, BUT T IHINK THE ASCLSROOMS ARE OPEN, RIGHT? SO WE MAY BE MASKING MORE INDOORS, BUT HOPEFULLY THE REST AROUND– RESTAURANTS, GYMNASMSIU WILL BE OPEN AS WELL. SO I THINK THINGS ARE BETTER. I THINKHE T WORST I BSEHIND United States. WITH THAT SAID, WE HAVE TO BE REALISTIC. WEVEEE SN IINT ISRAEL, THE U.K., NOW THE U.S.– THE DELTA VARITAN IS THAT CONTAGIOUS, AND WE ARE SEEING THE EFFECTS RIGHT NOW.
