But the delta is NOT specifically targeting kids.
It’s just that the delta is more contagious, and it’s affecting unvaccinated individuals, such as children.
This is the reason why more and more parents discourage visitations. They kindly ask people, including vaccinated relatives, to refrain from going to their houses because the kids are unprotected.
Symptoms Are Generally The Same As The Original COVID-19
Next on the things to know about the delta variant is that the symptoms are generally the same as the original Wuhan strain.
However, according to UC Davis Health, although the symptoms are similar, doctors notice that with the delta variant, people are getting sicker quicker, especially for younger people.
If you got your COVID jab, experts say you are likely to be asymptomatic or only develop mild symptoms similar to cold or flu, which include headache, cough, or fever, plus the hallmark loss of smell and taste.
With the Delta, Experts Still Recommend Following Health Protocols
To protect yourself and your family from the delta variant, it’s essential that you still follow health protocols – even if you’re fully vaccinated. In fact, many healthcare professionals still wear their masks even when they’re fully vaccinated.
