CDC Director Rochelle Walensky on Thursday said the Delta variant spreading across the US is worse than the virus we had circulating in 2020.
“It is one of the most infectious respiratory viruses we know of and that I have seen in my 20-year career,” Walensky said of the Delta variant.
Walensky told unvaccinated people to live in fear of the Delta variant.
“If you are not vaccinated, please take the Delta variant seriously,” Walensky said. “This virus has no incentive to let up and it remains in search of the next vulnerable person to infect.”
What Walensky really meant was ‘The Biden Admin has no incentive to let up…’

Walensky’s comments come just one week after she called the Delta variant the “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
However there is evidence to the contrary.
Senator Ron Johnson on Wednesday told Maria Bartiromo that 84% of new Covid cases in Israel are with vaccinated individuals.
“I just received this morning data out of Israel that shows the population is about 84% vaccinated. But the new cases of COVID in Israel are about 84% with vaccinated individuals,” Johnson said.
