The Delta variant, Indian variant, or the Lineage B.1.617 has shown cases of symptomatic vaccine breakthrough infections at a tertiary care place.
What is a symptomatic vaccine breakthrough?
Symptomatic vaccine breakthrough is when a person shows signs of reinfection after getting vaccinated with either or both shots of the vaccine.
Why must you take the vaccine?
Believe this, without the vaccine you don’t stand a chance. Don’t believe me? Look at the figures. If you still think that you could beat the virus without getting vaccinated then perhaps scroll through your medical records. If you never had a flu, a fever or any other sickness than you do stand a chance or else please go and get vaccinated.
Could the Delta B.1.617.2 be more effective than the vaccine?
Yes, quite contradictory. The worst symptoms of reinfection after vaccination would be raging fever for a few days. One could recover and rebuild a strong body but you can’t recover from death.
A study carried out at AIIMS showed that out of the 63 participants, the presence of Delta Variant was about 60 percent in people who received a double dose of either vaccine and it was found at 77 percent in people who received one dose.
No one died to COVID-19. Almost all cases reported high-grade unremitting fever for 5-7 days. But the vaccines remain very effective in preventing severe disease.
