Fauci warns of 'COVID Delta variant' in US amid new cases declining to March 2020 levels

The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions says COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths continue to drop in the United States, with this week’s seven-day average of cases registering at less that 13,300, the first time it has dropped below 15,000 since late March, 2020. Dr. Anthony Fauci told reporters the COVID-19 Delta variant, first identified in India, has become the dominant strain in the United Kingdom, amounting to approximately 60 percent of new cases there. Fauci said boosting the U.S. vaccination rate will help guard against the Delta variant gaining a greater hold here.
