It is more contagious, perhaps more aggressive and it is already here. What we said a few months ago about the Alpha, or British variant of the coronavirus , can now be attributed to the Delta, or Indian variant. In the United Kingdom it has rapidly displaced the previous version, while in Madrid it already causes community transmission . The WHO, in addition, has just admitted “some evidence of immune escape “, that is, vaccines could work worse against it. This time we will not be able to say that we were not warned.
“The efficacy of currently approved Covid-19 vaccines against B.1.617.2 [Delta variant] is unknown,” noted a study published in ‘ The Lancet ‘ on June 3. Emma C. Walk, from the Francis Crick Institute in London, and 24 co-authors analyzed the antibodies of people vaccinated with Pfizer in the laboratory and concluded that the defenses generated could be less effective against the new variant . They therefore concluded that it might be necessary to administer ” additional booster doses ” in the most vulnerable groups.

09.33. THE AIRBORNE CONTAGION OF THE CORONAVIRUS GAINS WEIGHT: “IN A CLOSED ROOM IT WOULD NOT BE ENOUGH TO EVEN KEEP TWO METERS AWAY”
We have all heard of aerosols in coronavirus infection, but do we know what they are? What does airborne transmission mean? It is very difficult for anyone to be clear about it, since the word “aerosol” can refer to different things and, in fact, its definition has changed during the pandemic , as well as its consideration against other forms of contagion. In practice, there are two essential questions whose answer depends on this scientific controversy: when will we remove the mask in the open air? And indoors?
“There continues to be a passionate debate about how exactly the virus is transmitted,” says Stephanie Dancer, a microbiologist at Edinburgh Napier University and author of important papers on SARS-CoV-2. “Some say that the virus contaminates relatively large droplets of saliva or respiratory fluids , which leave the mouth of an infected person and fall to the ground or other surfaces. If the droplets land in your eyes, nose or mouth, you can become infected; or you could touch a surface that houses these drops and transfer the virus to the mucous membranes with your fingers. ”
“Others say – continues Dancer – that the virus is more likely to be transmitted in small aerosols, also produced by an infected person when speaking or breathing . The difference is that, paradoxically, there are more virus particles in a tiny aerosol than in a drop, and besides, the aerosol is too small to fall to the ground. So the cloud of aerosols with viruses is suspended indoors, like a cloud of smoke. ”
