As thhe COVID-19 pandemic continues, public health officials are watching coronavirus mutations and variants that may be more contagious. The CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) monitor these variations.
What is the Delta Variant? It is also known as B.1.617.2. It spreads more easily, according to the CDC. The strain has mutations on the spike protein that make it easier for it to infect human cells. Tha means people may be more contagious if they contract the virus and more easily spread it to others.
What is the Delta Plus Variant? It is also known as B.1.6.617.2.1 or AY.1. It is considered a “subvariant” of the Delta versions, according to CBS News. It has a mutation that allows the virus to better attack lung cells.
What are the symptoms of the Delta variant? The symptoms are similar to those seen with the original coronavirus strain and other variants, including a persistent cough, headache, fever, and sore throat.
What should I do before I travel? Verify the information from the CDC and World Health Organization and choose a travel location that has safety protocols in place.
