Health experts have been predicting that the Delta variant would soon become the dominant coronavirus strain in the U.S. – and that day has arrived than expected.

According to CDC data, the Delta variant now accounts for more than 51% of new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. That’s quite a change from just one month ago, when Delta accounted for just 3% of U.S. cases.

The highest infection rate is in the Midwest region of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska – where Delta accounts for a whopping 80.7% of cases.

The Delta variant is more contagious and possibly more dangerous as well – especially for people who are unvaccinated.
