Walensky Speaks at the CBS Morning

A new CDC document which was first accessed by The Washington Post showed that the high contagious delta variant of COVID 19 spreads as quickly as chickenpox.

The leaked CDC document, which was later confirmed to be authentic by CDC chief Director Rochelle Walensky, showed that the virus is a superspreader even among the vaccinated and appears to cause more severe illness.

The document which was acquired in a presentation format also goes on to say that there should be universal mask mandates and universal vaccine mandates to control the super spreader delta strain of the Coronavirus.

The variant first detected in India is currently the dominant strain over the world.

The data also showed that even those who are fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 could spread the variant as quickly as their non-vaccinated counterparts.

The document says that a person can transmit the virus to eight-nine people on average.

Confirming the leaked document Walenksy told to CNN, “I think people need to understand that we’re not crying wolf here. This is serious. It’s one of the most transmissible viruses we know about. Measles, chickenpox, this – they’re all up there.”

Dr. Walensky emphasized that students, staff, and visitors in schools should wear masks at all times.

"The measures we need to get this under control – they’re extreme. The measures you need are extreme," she said.
