Senators Look At COVID Resurgence In Parts Of USA

(Washington, DC) — Senate hearings look at the resurgence of the coronavirus in many parts of the U.S. The surge is attributed to the rise of the Delta virus variant. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told a hearing that the national vaccination program has been very effective, when people get vaccinated. She warned against vaccine hesitancy (It should be recalled that Vice President Harris lead the vaccine hesitancy late last year: https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/05/politics/kamala-harris-not-trust-trump-vaccine-cnntv/index.html ) and said people should trust the effectiveness and safety of the COVID vaccines. Dr. Anthony Fauci called Delta the dominate variant in the U.S. The NIH veteran said the vaccines are the tools that can end the pandemic. WebMD.com reports that–curiously– as many as 25% of healthcare workers are not vaccinated.
In fact, nationwide, 1 in 4 hospital workers who have direct contact with patients had not received a single dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of May, according to a WebMD and Medscape Medical News analysis of data collected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from 2,500 hospitals across the U.S.
