Research by the British health authority Public Health England (PHE) suggests that people who become infected with the delta variant are very contagious. Whether they have been vaccinated or not should have no effect on this.
“Guardian” reports. In an official statement from PHE, it said that preliminary results showed that the viral load in vaccinated people who tested positive due to vaccination success was as high as in non-vaccinated Delta-infected people.
The notification does not state what data PHE refers to. Since the data are very early, further targeted studies are also needed to confirm this notion.

Data from the US Epidemic Protection Agency from last week already indicated that vaccinated people could transmit the delta virus just as much as people without vaccinations.
Thus, there is still a need for caution for vaccinated people, especially when they meet unvaccinated people. However, it is still certain that vaccines provide very reliable protection against severe courses compared with hospital courses.
The vaccination success in the delta variant is mainly due to the fact that it has the property of being able to better avoid the antibodies that form after vaccination.
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has so far found 7500 breakthroughs in 42 million people who were fully vaccinated. Despite vaccination, the disease occurred in about 0.02 percent of those who were fully vaccinated.
According to the RKI, about 54 percent of Germany’s population is now fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. (tsp)
