    1. Carl T. Bergstrom. (2021, May 27). An update on the B.1.617.2 lineage. I’m concerned. Not because of reduced vaccine efficacy, but simply because a further increase in transmissibility above B.1.1.7 would be quite bad news for countries where vaccination is low and for hopes of near-elimination everywhere.

    1. Elisabeth Mahase. (2021, July 26). At least 6 weeks between Pfizer vaccine doses = higher neutralising antibody levels (than a 3-4 wk interval) For those with the delta variant, antibody levels were 2.3-fold higher with the longer interval Preprint from @pitchstudy @bmjlatest https://t.co/E3yOTqNgpa [Tweet]. @emahase. https://twitter.com/emahase_/status/1419604658344112130

    1. Alan McNally 💙. (2021, February 5). Our latest lab data for B.1.1.7 prevalence in Pillar 2 samples, as determined by SGTF. Clearly now plateauing at 80-90%. Which to me suggests there are other lineages as transmissible as B.1.1.7......... Https://t.co/toA0GyVsZz [Tweet]. @alanmcn1. https://twitter.com/alanmcn1/status/1357701944027004929

    1. World Health Organization (WHO). (2021, May 31). Today WHO has announced a new naming system for key #COVID19 variants. The labels are based on the Greek alphabet (i.e. Alpha, Beta, Gamma, etc), making them simple, easy to say and remember. 👉 https://t.co/aYCZfspZyb https://t.co/Gxt14fwVqF [Tweet]. @WHO. https://twitter.com/WHO/status/1399432092333883393

    1. David Fisman. (2021, July 8). Fascinating new preprint on delta vs older variants in well-investigated outbreaks in China. Viral load for delta is 3 log higher, and latent period is shorter too (estimate is 4 days vs 6 days). This may explain much higher R estimates which may be due to elevated viral load [Tweet]. @DFisman. https://twitter.com/DFisman/status/1413126886570536963

Eric Topol on Twitter: “As the Delta variant (B.1.617.2) becomes dominant throughout the world, there are 2 patterns emerging: —Countries w/ low vaccination rates are seeing both case and fatality rates increase—Countries w/ high vaccination rate: Some case increase and minimal to no fatality increase https://t.co/sSE4RlSeUJ” / Twitter.

    1. Eric Topol. (2021, June 9). Despite increasing incentives, the US vaccination campaign is really struggling. Notably, the top 5 states are approaching 60% total population fully vaccinated which should provide strong protection vs the delta variant.
