COVID Virus Update: What’s Happening In The U.S.A.!
As we all know the Delta Variant is spreading in the US and if you compare it to COVID-19, it’s no joke. The Delta variant has hospitals overflowing with COVID patients once again.
Is it time that we all stop wearing masks? Hell NO! The mask mandate in California is the best thing ever, and the rest of the country needs to follow California’s mask mandate.
Did you know it only takes 5 minutes for someone who has the Delta variant to catch it? That is extremely faster than COVID-19 which took 15-minutes. Social distancing is a must people – remember to stay 6 feet away from each other and wear your mask, especially if you are going to any music festivals.
CelebnHealth247.com reports what is happening in other states since the Delta variant is spreading like a wildfire.
The good news is that the booster shots for Pfizer and Moderna have been approved.
