'The war has changed': CDC documents sound alarm on Delta variant

The war against Covid-19 has changed because of the highly contagious Delta variant, as per the CDC. The CDC proposed a clearer message, mandatory vaccines for health workers and a return to universal masking. The variant, now dominant across the globe, is as contagious as chickenpox and more contagious than the common cold or flu. It can be passed on even by vaccinated people, and may cause more serious disease than earlier coronavirus strains. The variant requires a new approach to help the public understand the danger. "Acknowledge the war has changed," it said. "Improve communications around individual risk among vaccinated."
