An article on Mashable about living with the Delta variant quotes Thomas Russo, chief of infectious diseases at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “If your shields are down, then your likelihood of getting seriously ill is significantly higher," explained Russo, according to the article. “The preventative solution is obvious, just as it was for the crippling disease polio and the deadly malady smallpox: vaccines. You should have a plan to be vaccinated as soon as possible.” “Today, with a far more transmissible respiratory virus, it will be hard for the unvaccinated to avoid eventually getting, and possibly spreading disease,” according to the article. "I don't think there's any hiding from this virus," said Russo.” The article was also published in Jioforme and other media.
