A Texas hospital reported its first case of the lambda variant. But how infectious is it? And do vaccines protect against it? Here's what we know. RELATED:

A Houston hospital has its first case of the lambda variant of the coronavirus, but public health experts say it remains too soon to tell whether the variant will rise to the same level of concern as the delta variant currently raging across unvaccinated communities in the U.S.

About 83% of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. are from the delta variant and the vast majority of hospitalizations are among unvaccinated people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

  1. So I guess like hurricane names it’ll go to zeta, and start over at A until everyone takes an experimental unproven treatment. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

  2. So it’s basically only the Trumpist antivaxxers who are getting seriously ill or dying from the Delta variant. Hopefully that will knock some sense into those who haven’t so far contracted the virus and they’ll finally decide to get vaccinated.

    1. @Grim reaper oh lol just checked…. You made an alt just to troll! Ayy man I respect the grind it’s okay bucko

    2. @Grim reaper how come all your republican idols are suddenly supporting the vaccine? why do you think that is?

    3. @Eye of Horus So, you’re saying we should ignore the experience and numbers we’re seeing in the U.S. and, instead, find some other country where their numbers more confirm our bias. Got it.

    4. These news medias must be getting paid by the manufacturer of these jabs or the govt. All they want to do is cause fear to get ppl to get the jab. They want more guinea pigs for their experiments. Ppl need to stop watching the media and start doing their own research. If you go onto the CDC website and find lots of information that the media is not reporting.

  3. Ur supposed to report the news but the numbers don’t help ur agenda so ur not even gonna find out what the numbers are .i can’t believe news has come to this .cant believe anything u say .but I do have 2 honest news people and I can’t even say they names because u will drop them

  4. This is so damn stupid!! I had to Google this bullsh!t. So there are Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Eta, Iota, Kappa, and Lambda variants? GTFOH!!!

    1. That’s what viruses do dude, they mutate. We’ve known this for decades, it’s just like the flu, it comes back a little different

  5. I trust the government, media and big pharma-give me my jab sir. As long as these institutions are pushing for it, it must be for my benefit.
