Key Information About the Delta Variant and How it Compares

“The Delta variant is more aggressive and much more transmissible than previously circulating strains,” Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said at a White House briefing last week. “It is one of the most infectious respiratory viruses we know of and that I have seen in my 20-year career.”

  • First identified in India, Delta is one of several variants of concern, as designated by the CDC and the World Health Organization. It has spread rapidly across the world and poses a particular threat in places where vaccination rates remain low.
     

  • It's currently responsible for more than 80 percent of infections in the United States, largely among unvaccinated people, according to the CDC.
     

  • It's more transmissible than Ebola or smallpox, and as contagious as chickenpox.
