Conspiracy theories on #COVID19’s origins have been a huge source of misinformation. @PeterHotez emphasizes the importance of digging deeper into the origin of the virus in order to prepare for future viral outbreaks. http://spr.ly/6017ygub1
Yeah, we know. https://www.acsh.org/news/2021/07/31/delta-loose-cdcs-pointless-masking-guidelines-wont-stem-breakthrough-covid-infections-15702
I want to be clear - the majority of #COVID19 spread in the US is among the unvaccinated. Vaccinated people can spread the virus if they get a breakthrough infection, but the odds of them getting sick in the first place are far lower than those who are unvaccinated.
Today is a significant milestone, as 70% of eligible U.S. adults have had at least one #COVID19 vaccination shot. Our work is not done — the need for vaccinations is more important than ever as the #Deltavariant rapidly spreads across the country. http://spr.ly/6013y9LKl
