The urgency of vaccination in Florida

Efforts to get more Americans vaccinated against Covid-19 are growing more urgent as an expert warns that if vaccination rates don’t increase, the dangerous Delta variant could continue to evolve.

“The next variant is just around the corner, if we do not all get vaccinated,” Adm. Brett Giroir, the coronavirus testing czar under President Trump, told CNN.

A surge in the Delta variant combined with low vaccination rates has sent the US backward in the pandemic, and messages from President Biden’s health officials have sometimes been muddled or contradictory.

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ battle with Biden is only complicating matters in a state that has seen coronavirus-related hospitalizations rise 13% from their previous peak in July 2020.

Globally, the picture is bleak too. The Delta variant is ravaging the world and pushing Southeast Asian nations to the breaking point.
