Los Angeles is among the cities now urging people to wear masks again as the Delta variant takes hold in America

The Delta variant has officially landed in America and it is posing a dangerous risk to the unvaccinated and in pockets even the vaccinated. According to Los Angeles officials, spikes in cases related to the Delta strain have been found higher in communities in the area. LA joins a host of other places struggling to keep up with vaccination rates as the variant has rapidly spread.

Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Wyoming are reporting between 100 and 500 cases per 100,000 people over the last seven days, according to a recent report . Los Angeles is far from alone in its spike of cases related to the newest variant of the often deadly Coronavirus.

Meanwhile in New York City, Mayor De Blasio has declared that New York City will not go into another lockdown even if the deadly variant continues to spread. It is understood that NYC has one of the most successful vaccination rates in the U.S with more than 4.6m people vaccinated as of this writing. Though NYC is in fact struggling to reach vulnerable populations that often live on the streets or entirely off the grid.

‘We are watching the Delta variant very carefully in this city…We have a lot of information, and we’re obviously watching it around the world but the difference here is a very high level of vaccination,’ he said noting that 4.2 million city residents have been fully vaccinated and another 4.6 million have received one dose.  

‘The bottom line is right now we’re winning the race against the Delta variant, but we’ve gotta keep winning,’ he said.
