You may have heard that COVID-19 is getting deadlier.
Specifically, there are fears that the Delta variant could wreak havoc.
The Delta variant is already causing lockdowns across Asia and Australia.
Los Angeles County is even telling people to wear masks indoors AGAIN because of this new strain of the coronavirus.
And now, Dr. Fauci is calling the Delta variant the “nation’s greatest threat” in attempting to control COVID-19.
Here’s the deal: The Delta variant is more contagious, it’s deadlier, and it’s spreading quickly around the world – leaving young, unvaccinated people more vulnerable than ever. Please, get vaccinated if you haven’t already. Let’s head off this strain before it’s too late. pic.twitter.com/9gBeRpvCe8

BREAKING—Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday the #DeltaVariant now accounts for ~20% of newly diagnosed cases in U.S. and **will become dominant #COVID19 strain** within weeks. FT also estimated 31%, meaning it’s doubled/tripled in 1 week!🧵 HT @Dawn_Kopecki https://t.co/4KQSvU4C8z pic.twitter.com/N2Khy8MtNe

The Delta variant is infecting a growing number of people in the U.S. and has become the nation’s greatest threat in the effort to control COVID-19, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci. https://t.co/GDplL9qcc6 pic.twitter.com/lnnJG8v5od

But given that Dr. Fauci was wrong on so much, should we really trust him on this claim?
Dr. Fauci was wrong about shutting down the border.
He also claimed (early in 2020) that COVID would not be a threat to the United States.
He was initially against masking, before he was for masking.
Fauci then encouraged double-masking.
His record is filled with flip-flops and inaccuracies.
And now, Senator Rand Paul is speaking out.
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.

Democrats say to trust the science.
Well, the science so far appears to suggest that the Delta variant is LESS deadly than the normal strain of COVID-19.
This is based on the fatality rate of 0.08% that Rand Paul exposed above.
More and more people are analyzing the facts.
The “Delta Variant” is going to give our oppressive government and Fauci even more control. Standby for the madness.

That "deadly" Delta variant (also known as the Indian variant) Fauci and co are fear mongering about is sporting a recovery rate of 99.9%.

It appears that mask-requirements are already coming back in the United States.
If that happens… doesn’t that mean that a lockdown could happen as well?!
The LA Times confirms that everyone in LA County, even if they are vaccinated, is being asked to wear masks indoors:
With the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus continuing to spread statewide, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is recommending that all residents wear masks in public indoor spaces — regardless of whether they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19.
Monday’s announcement is one of the clearest signals yet of just how seriously health officials are taking the strain, and the danger it poses, particularly to those who have yet to be inoculated.
Officials have said the available vaccines appear to offer strong protection. But there’s significant concern that those who have yet to receive all their required shots, or any doses at all, remain vulnerable to the Delta variant — which may be twice as transmissible as the conventional coronavirus strains.
More than 3 in 5 Californians have gotten at least one vaccine dose to date, but fewer than half are fully vaccinated, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. California has one of the nation’s highest vaccination rates, and that has many experts confident the Delta strain won’t cause the kinds of COVID-19 surges seen over the last year.
“Until we better understand how and to who the Delta variant is spreading, everyone should focus on maximum protection with minimum interruption to routine as all businesses operate without other restrictions, like physical distancing and capacity limits,” officials wrote in a statement.
Donning face coverings in public indoor places was the norm until only recently, and is still required for the unvaccinated. As part of California’s June 15 reopening, though, the state aligned with guidance from the CDC that people who are fully vaccinated no longer needed to wear masks in most situations.

The restrictions are spreading worldwide thanks to the Delta variant.
In the United States, things appear to be back to normal.
But the Delta variant could change that in as little as a few weeks.
The Washington Post has more details on these lockdowns:
The rapid spread of the delta coronavirus variant has forced a growing number of countries to reimpose lockdowns and other public health restrictions, raising fears that the more contagious variant was hampering global efforts to contain the pandemic.
The new curbs on travel and daily life stretched from Australia and Bangladesh to South Africa and Germany, where authorities over the weekend set new limits on travelers from “virus-variant zones” such as Portugal and Russia.
South Africa on Sunday extended a nightly curfew and introduced a ban on gatherings, alcohol sales, indoor dining and some domestic travel for 14 days to halt a worrying surge in cases driven by the delta variant, President Cyril Ramaphosa said. In Bangladesh, the government pointed to a “dangerous and alarming” rise in delta-related infections and halted all public transportation starting Monday, prompting thousands of migrant workers to flee the capital, Dhaka, before the restrictions took hold.
Thai authorities declared a month-long limited lockdown in the capital, Bangkok, and neighboring provinces, amid a spike in new cases attributed to the delta variant. And Malaysia extended a nationwide shutdown that was scheduled to be relaxed Monday.
In Taiwan, which reported its first delta case on Saturday, the local Centers for Disease Control announced new restrictions for people arriving from seven “high-risk countries”: Bangladesh, Britain, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Israel and Peru.
Hong Kong also said Monday that it was banning all passenger flights from Britain beginning later this week, because of the growing number of new coronavirus cases and “widespread delta variant virus strain there,” according to a government statement.
Health experts have warned that the delta variant — which was first identified in India — is on track to become the most dominant version of the coronavirus worldwide. The World Health Organization said last week that it has been detected in at least 92 countries.
Israel has one of the world’s highest vaccination rates but has also seen delta cases jump in recent weeks, causing authorities to reinstate an indoor mask mandate that was dropped just two weeks ago.
Israeli officials on Sunday night, however, ruled against reviving more stringent coronavirus measures. Instead, the government is relying on the country’s high vaccination rate to protect residents from virus-related hospitalizations and deaths.
If President Trump were still in the White House, it’s likely that the Democrats would use the Delta variant to try to damage him politically.
Now that the Biden regime is occupying the White House, don’t be surprised if they try to put off restrictions as long as possible.
But given how often Biden bows to the radical left… don’t be surprised if new restrictions on our freedom come sooner rather than later.
