19) Now the crisis—Let this sink in—over 100 US counties right now have <20% of local population vaccinated. That is a “time bomb waiting to happen” says Dr @mtosterholm . This will not end well low vaccinations area of the US & around world.
Fred originally source the youtube so well worth watching. It was taken from Professor C. Killeen’s tweets. He is UCC.
@DrEricDing · 15) again, @IndependentSage also emphasizes that people who are either elderly or have morbidity may be even more susceptible to #DeltaVariant – even if vaccinated. Video part 2 of 3 by @VickiGSP

Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing · 17) the main problem with #DeltaVariant is that the 1 dose strategy isn’t good anymore. 1 dose vaccine efficacy is likely just ~33% or so with either AstraZeneca or Pfizer. That is trouble for millions that aren’t two dose vaccinated yet. Quote Tweet
Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing · Jun 5 “Immune escape” in #DeltaVariant. That’s the latest finding – that #B16172 is as bad for antibody neutralization as the Beta variant #B1351 from South Africa . 1st dose alone very small effect— 2 doses needed, but weakest against Delta. Let’s walk through evidence #COVID19 twitter.com/TheLancet/stat… Show this thread Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing · 18) back to the age issue, notice how virus neutralization drops with age. Problem with #DeltaVariant (right) and vaccine is that among young adults, they start at lower vaccine neutralization level than even an elderly person with original strain! Quote Tweet
Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing · Jun 5 6) Also notice how virus neutralization is much weaker in the elderly… yet for #B16172 #DeltaVariant, the neutralization in young adults (~20s) for Delta is akin to neutralization in the elderly for the wild type old strain!
