We're vaccinated so those of us who are vaccinated. What do we need to be thinking about. What this new variant well. It's the first thing to now. Is we worrying about variants because they they demonstrate that the viruses mutated and when we the viruses mutated it usually does so with some advantage to the virus so this time the delta variant that everybody's been hearing about that advantages that it's more transmissible and so we know now that about fifty seven percent of all virus here in the united states is the delta variant. But the good news. Is that our vaccines work against it. And so the really important thing to know is that if you are not vaccinated on your at higher risk of getting the delta variant and you need to put on your mask and you need to do all this prevention measures we've been talking about for over a year now but if you are vaccinated. You're well protected even against the delta variant. Now what we worry about with hearings in general is that they will continue to emerge as more and more virus circulates and that one day they might emerge to evade our vaccines. And that's of course the biggest concern which is why we want to suppress virus all over the place so the evolution of a variant is something. That's going to be in our near future for sure that i worry indeed here in the united states and around the world and what about this fall. Are you concerned about what's going to happen this fall.
