Do you know anyone that had the covid Delta Variant?
« on: August 13, 2021, 06:34:47 PM »
I have been hearing so much about this Delta variant yet I don't even know one person that has it. I'm curious to hear from others.

I personally don't know anyone that was covid positive in months.

I don't know that people will know if they have the new variant, but yes, I know a number of people who tested positive over the past couple of weeks in:
Monsey
Flatbush
Crown Heights
Great Neck
My pediatrician in Crown Heights sent out a notice that Delta is spreading through frum communities including Crown Heights.
Plenty of reports on DDF that cases are rising in Lakewood.

So yeah, it's real and it's here. Get vaccinated.

Oh, and Miami as well. But I don't think that's your question.

To most likely prevent yourself from contracting covid, and in the unlikely event you do contract it, to prevent the symptoms from being severe or dangerous, and in the extremely unlikely event symptoms are severe, to almost certainly prevent from death, ch"v.

This prevention will also most likely prevent it from spreading to someone else, especially older more vulnerable people for whom covid is more dangerous even if they have been vaccinated.

Please explain what this means. New variants are created within the human body once someone becomes infected. What does becoming a vaccination factory mean?

Oh gosh, you just reminded me of someone else who is in the icu. Young father with no underlying conditions. Not vaccinated.

New variants are becoming when someone is vaccinated and the virus trying to bypass the immunity.

Are you referring to antibody-dependent enhancement from Dr stock's video? That was dealt with here


If you'd like a scientist's look at the claims, see the extensive response by Edward Nirenberg, who writes better and more quickly than I could.

Search for "antibody-dependent enhancement" to see the relevant portion.

But the real answer is not to trust a guy on an internet forum. We have an Eibishter, we have a Torah, and we have halacha. Halacha instructs us to follow the advice of doctors. So follow halacha and ask your doctor. I'm confident in saying "get vaccinated" as a blanket statement because the medical concensus is to do so. If your specific case differs, you should of course follow the guidance and instruction you receive.

To answer the OP the only way to know if one has the Delta Variant is if the test goes to the CDC...which most dont. There is no commercially available test for the variant. In fact most rapid tests are not sensitive to Delta. My daughter tells me she has tested hundreds of patients in her urgent care and for many the rapids are negative and the lab tests come back positive.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

I'm shocked at these answers here. Obviously these days I'm a little skeptical with the MSM, therefore I was looking for some personal answers .   :(

Many people know someone with Covid now. As I do. You’re asking if anyone knows someone who’s test went to the CDC ?
