In the United States of America, 156 million people have been vaccinated completely. It has been reported that the vaccine is very effective against all the variants of coronavirus which also includes rapidly spreading delta variant. However, some of the physicians are still advising in the favor of wearing a mask.
By St. Louis County and City Public Health Department, a warning has been issued recently regarding the delta variant spread. Due to this reason, people have been advised to wear a mask even indoors. It does not matter whether you are fully vaccinated or not. Strong recommendation has been made after observing rise in the number of cases in the area.
When You Should Wear a Mask?
Walensky has also said “If you’re in a community that has a high amount of disease and less than a third of your population is vaccinated, one should consider whether the policy should be to mask, more about protecting the two-thirds of the community that are not vaccinated.”
In about 100 counties of USA, vaccination coverage is approximately 30%. If you look at the county like Wyoming then you may find that only 31 % people are vaccinated. So, what about the large portion of 69%? Yes, they are still more susceptible to the coronavirus. Due to this reason, Dr. Andy Dunn from Wyoming Medical Center in Casper has said that both vaccinated and non-vaccinated people must wear a mask also. Dunn has also said, “These variants are going to find a way. Do whatever it takes for Covid to go away. If I had to jump on my left foot five times a day, I would do it.”
