Delta where it is becoming more of a market issue (at least today)
With the Dow down nearly 900 points and down -2.58%, the S&P down -2.06% or 89 points and the Nasdaq down -1.46% or -2.10 points, on the back of concerns about a slower recovery as a result of Covid, the comments from the likes of Dr. Fauci could become more important again.
He is sayings:
- Delta variant is becoming more dominant
- vaccinated people are generally protected but not completely
- If your vaccinated have a 93%-94% chance of protection
Earlier today, UK chief scientific advisor stated that 60% of people being admitted to hospital have had two vaccine doses. This contradicts Fauci's assessment of 93% – 94% chance of protection.
