COVID-19 Cases Rising Due To The Delta Variant

1008875219.jpg

With vaccination rates flat and COVID-19 cases rising, due in large part to the more highly transmissible Delta variant, the CDC is thinking about changing its guidance on masks for people who are vaccinated. New cases of COVID-19 have doubled over the last two weeks, and surges are concentrated in areas where vaccinations remain low.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the Delta variant is UC Health Associate Chairman of Medicine for Translational Research and Professor of Infectious Diseases Carl Fichtembaum, MD.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
