A CBS-17 report says the COVID-19 variant that infected eight N.C. State baseball players can infect twice as many people as the virus last year. The report also acknowledged doctors are mostly concerned about those who are not vaccinated, including David Wohl, MD, professor of medicine in the division of infectious diseases.
“Because the virus evolves to become more fit just like someone exercises and becomes better to run better to climb that’s what happens with these viruses, they become better at being transmitted from one person to another,” said Wohl in the news report. Watch or read the news story on CBS-17.
Wohl also talked with the News & Observer, where he recognized the vaccine is the best protection for the Delta variant.
