On his official Twitter account, President Joe Biden claims that the Delta variant Wuhan coronavirus has been “deadlier than other variants during the pandemic.” Biden administration officials are continuing to defend Dr. Anthony Fauci’s claim that the Delta variant of Wuhan coronavirus “spreads better” and that those who have not been vaccinated are more at risk of serious illness or even death.
“I’m here to talk to you today about the Delta variant that causes COVID-19,” Fauci said. “The comparison is it is transmitted much more efficiently, which means the chances of getting infected upon exposure is greater than the dominant variant that we have now in the United States.”
Could these claims be true, is it possible?
Republican Senator Rand Paul is back, having debunked Fauci claims for more than one year.
Don’t let the fearmongers win. New public England study of delta variant shows 44 deaths out of 53,822 (.08%) in unvaccinated group. Hmmm.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) June 29, 2021
