La variante Delta de Coronavirus podría crear “dos Américas”

Share

La variante del coronavirus Delta, que devastó la India y obligó al Reino Unido a retrasar el levantamiento de sus restricciones de coronavirus restantes, ahora está aumentando en los EE. UU. 

Los expertos dicen que podemos estar a punto de ver el surgimiento de “dos Américas” de COVID: una con altas tasas de vacunación donde la variante del coronavirus Delta representa una amenaza moderada, y la otra con bajos niveles de vacunación que serán vulnerables a nuevas oleadas mortales. Esa división es impulsada en gran parte por la política partidista, con las tasas de vacunación más altas en las ciudades liberales y más bajas en los bastiones conservadores en el sur profundo y en las áreas rurales de todo el país.

“Yo lo llamo dos naciones COVID”, dijo Peter Hotez, investigador de vacunas del Baylor College of Medicine en Houston.

Dondequiera que haya bajas tasas de vacunación, el virus seguirá circulando y mutando, aumentando el riesgo de que surjan nuevas variantes más peligrosas, potencialmente afectando aún a los que están vacunados. Dado que la vacunación en la mayor parte del mundo está muy por detrás de los EE. UU., es probable que la variante Delta sea seguida por otras.

La variante Delta, también conocida como B.1.617.2, se descubrió por primera vez en India a fines de 2020 y se cree que impulsó el devastador aumento de COVID-19 en ese país, que comenzó en marzo. Desde entonces, se ha extendido a más de 80 países en todo el mundo, incluido EE. UU., donde los Centros de Enfermedades Contagiosas (CDC) lo designaron oficialmente el martes como una “variante de extrema preocupación”.

Los datos de Public Health England indican que la variante Delta es entre un 40% y un 60% más transmisible que la variante Alpha, también conocida como B.1.1.7. identificada por primera vez en el Reino Unido y ahora la variante más común en los EE. UU., la variante Alpha es a su vez mucho más transmisible que las formas anteriores del coronavirus.

Hasta ahora, las vacunas disponibles parecen ofrecer una buena protección contra la mayoría de las variantes. Pero la variante Delta parece capaz de escapar de la inmunidad parcial al coronavirus. 

También hay indicios de que la variante Delta puede causar una enfermedad más grave. Un estudio de casos en Escocia publicado esta semana encontró que el riesgo de ingreso hospitalario con la variante Delta se duplicó aproximadamente en comparación con las personas infectadas con la variante Alfa.

“Este es un virus desagradable”, dijo John Moore, virólogo del Weill Cornell Medical College en Nueva York.

Ahora que se cree que la variante Delta representa más del 90% de las nuevas infecciones en el Reino Unido, y con el aumento de casos y hospitalizaciones una vez más, el primer ministro Boris Johnson anunció el martes que retrasará la eliminación de las restricciones de coronavirus restantes en Inglaterra, originalmente (Escocia, Gales e Irlanda del Norte establecen sus propias reglas de salud, pero han realizado movimientos similares).

En los EE. UU., la variante Delta ahora parece propagarse más rápidamente que la variante Alpha en una etapa similar en su ascenso al dominio, según datos de outbreak.info, un proyecto de seguimiento de coronavirus dirigido por investigadores de Scripps Research en La Jolla, California.

No está claro si Delta dominará tan rápida y totalmente como lo hizo en el Reino Unido, donde reemplazó un brote impulsado casi en su totalidad por la variante Alpha. En los EE. UU., circula una mayor cantidad de variantes en competencia, lo que dificulta predecir lo que sucederá, dijo Bette Korber, bióloga computacional del Laboratorio Nacional de Los Alamos en Nuevo México. Pero espera que Delta se convierta en la variante más común en los EE. UU. en unas semanas. “Se está moviendo realmente rápido”, dijo Korber.

Dada la velocidad esperada de propagación de la variante Delta y el hecho de que la vacuna no es suficiente para brindar una mediana protección, decidir retrasar la vacunación es arriesgado. “Algunas de esas personas se van a llevar una sorpresa desagradable”, dijo Bob Wachter, presidente del Departamento de Medicina de la Universidad de California en San Francisco.

La baja absorción de vacunas en el sur y en las áreas rurales de todo el país hace que estas áreas sean más vulnerables a la variante Delta. “Creo que hay una posibilidad inminente de que, en invierno o en otoño, se produzcan aumentos repentinos importantes”, dijo Wachter.

    If I lived in Mississippi I’d be stocking up to prepare for not leaving my damn house for months, or fleeing to Vermont. The uptake of vaccination there looks pathetically low. Do the local slack-jawed yokels think they can shoot their guns at Delta?

    1. CL, do you see this sentence at the top of the paper? “This article is a preprint and has not been peer-reviewed [what does this mean?]. It reports new medical research that has yet to be evaluated and so should not be used to guide clinical practice.”

  3. ugh! I’m in Louisiana and the vaccine numbers are deplorable. We’re slowly (is there a word for slower than slow) inching upward, but it’s still under 50%.

    I have searched my soul, and I can honestly say, “If you refuse to get a vaccine and then get sick, I don’t care”. To all the rest, continue to be careful and be smart.

  4. i live in Texas, and so many family/friends of mine don’t believe in vaccines, and i just can’t believe how. I’m so genuinely concerned for many of the people i know, because i care about them, but they refuse to get their vaccines/wear a mask when i advise them it would be smart to do so

    I feel bad for anyone who CANNOT get vaccinated (as opposed to refusing to), such as young children, and those with medical conditions. Everyone else who won’t get vaccinated can go fuck themselves. And if they are Republicans, so much the better. Not only are these morons endangering their own families, but they are endangering the rest of us too. The more cases of the disease that occur, the more it mutates, and the greater the chance that new variants will form. Eventually variants may develop that will infect even those of us that are double vaccinated. Doctors know that the circulating virus will eventually find those who are unvaccinated, and therefore have no immunity. If you think you will avoid it, think again, especially since other anti-vaxxers also don’t like wearing masks, and will give it to you. I have ZERO sympathy for anyone who refuses the vaccine, and dies from COVID. Say hi to Charles Darwin for me

      What a crock of shit!
      First, it’s NOT a vaccine.
      Second, NONE of this would have happened if they hadn’t suppressed hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, safe, effective treatment and prophylaxis.
      All of this has been done to boost pharma profits and support the depopulation agenda.

  5. yesterday, I took my kids away from a haircut appt bc the stylist told them no one needed a mask on, and she didn’t have one on, and I asked if she was vaccinated and she said no, does that bother you? I said, of course it does!! And shame on you for putting my kids at risk!! They’re too young for the vaccine. What a selfish asshole!!!!

      OMG! Shame stupidity does seem to come in those variants. Cite your source for that quote, please, and how it is scientifically applicable to the mutations which create viral variants. Please also present your work as to the political leanings of viruses. I was under the impression that, as organisms on the edge of life, they are apolitical beyond replication.

        Dave007 and Anonymous, it looks like you don’t understand the quotation. Obama was trying to DEpoliticize the virus, by saying it isn’t blue (Democrat), or red (Republican), but UNITED because it can infect everyone in the United States, no matter how they vote. He wasn’t talking about variants. Get it now?

    This is why I’m so mad that places are starting to allow “vaccinated” people to not wear masks. People will and have lied, I’m wearing mine for however long I have to I don’t care. I and my mom have gotten every dose of the vaccine that we need to but she’s immunicompromised and could likely end up very sick regardless if she caught it. This is why I never wanna leave my house and rarely do. People wonder why I’m so angry and it’s the selfishness of these damn people who refuse to get vaccinated or at least wear their masks.

    1. I’m vaccinated but I still mask up because I can still be a carrier and infect others, I just won’t die.

      Ok have fun with that. I’ll continue living my life because that’s the only reason I got the vaccine.

      1. oh go fuck yourself, she clearly explained why she chooses to be cautious and I do the exact same thing, my immunocompromised mom got the vaccine but we still worry and people are careless assholes with other peoples lives. You may have gotten the vaccine only for selfish reasons but it didn’t give immunity from being an asshole

  6. Estan usando el falso virus para eliminar a los republicanos asi los zurdos se quedan con el pais, pero el 4 de julio va a aver sorpresa cuando Trump y sus Generales vuelvan a asumir el poder. Y que se preparen los democratas porque van a terminar en la base de Guantanamo

    which is so bizarre since it’s one good thing trump can brag about and take some legit credit for. yet because dems are so much in favor it the reps are purposely against it out of spite. i’d almost bet money that if the dems said everyone should eat more meat and exercise less a ton of reps would become health nuts and maybe even vegans.

      La gente siempre murió ¿o solamente ahora por un bicho que nadie ha visto? En el mundo, anualmente mueren entre 60 y 75 millones dependiendo de las épocas. año 2020 murieron 8,3 millones de fumadores TABAQUISMO, de los cuales 1,2 de fumadores PASIVOS, en el mundo y resulta que por el Bicho en 1 año y 3 meses solamente 3.853.370. En Argentina, 3.853.370, mismo lapso; en 2017 fallecieron por cuestiones respiratorias (Coronavirus) 64.869 en 1 año; 2018 – 61,200, año 2019 – 60.355; por año en la Argentina mueren entre 360.000 y 420.000 personas y hay unos 700.000 nacimientos.

    if you still think covid-19/vaccinations/masks have been politically weaponized. it has, by the republicans. republican senators, congresswomen/men, governors, fox news and even Drump have gotten their vaccinations but the republican flock continue to graze.

      It’s because we kept being told “get vaccinated but wear the mask”, “if you wear the mask you’ll still carry and spread the disease!” (anti-vax stance, btw), and other indications that even if we get vaxxed, nothing will change. What, exactly, was the incentive?…

        Marionette, Literally nothing you said made sense. If you stopped consuming science from politically-biased monkey-media, you’d understand that you didn’t take the vaccine to stop wearing masks, you took the vaccine to prevent getting/spreading the disease. There was a period of time that it was considered plausible that you could still carry the virus while being vaccinated, but the moment the SCIENCE came out, CDC said you could stop wearing the mask. This is how real science works. Just saying science, doesn’t make it science. Secondly, a majority of the scientists backed the Democratic party planning. The very fact that you believe a very human Fauci is the devil incarnate is because … [please refer to comment about monkey-media]. Literally every research institution backed the mask mandate, and the vaccine mandate. Lord only knows what science said not to get the vaccine. Finally, explain to me how you’re mocking liberals by taking the vaccine?
