Delta Variant has significant immune evasion

The Delta variant has significant immune evasion and fitness compared to Alpha. Vaccines will prevent severe disease/death in *most* people, but special measures may be needed for those who respond poorly to vaccination. Infection in vaccinated HCWs needs to be considered more  

Whatever the mutant, safety is by keeping distance and using mask. Every thing else is less relevant. more  
Scientists doctors are there to do research on this and let's not waste of out valuable time. Everyone knows that this virus has the character of mutations and hence there will be many more to be identified and so vaccines to be improvised constantly to meet this unforeseen events. more  
Measures must be taken by the authorities to enforce Covid protocol being followed stringently in public places otherwise it's doomsday again like during the second wave more  
we can do all kinds of analyses but when will we realise that the only way to fight the virus is my maintaining physical distance and wearing a mask. It's a pity that while doctors/virologists do emphasise this,one doesn't see political leaders and other public figures launching all out campaigns to try and influence public behaviour. strictness in enforcement, though not the ideal solution, is also necessary. the writing is on the wall and in case the third wave does happen we'll have only ourselves to blame more
