CDC says delta variant spreads easier and more infectious than coronavirus
Written by Karolyn Hairston on August 4, 2021
The CDC presentation says the Delta variant is about as transmissible as chickenpox, with each infected person, on average, infecting eight or nine others.
The original lineage was about as transmissible as the common cold, with each infected person passing the virus to about two other people on average.
“It’s one of the most transmissible viruses we know about. Measles, chickenpox, this — they’re all up there.”
