Officials say the Delta variant is the driving force behind Missouri leading the nation in most COVID-19 cases per capita. CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca spoke to a doctor in Springfield, Missouri who says he’s seeing more younger, unvaccinated patients being admitted to his hospital, and worries the surge he’s facing right now is going to intensify.

  1. Covid what a joke
    A vaccine so safe they bribe u to take it
    A pandemic so deadly u need a test to know u got it

    They should be buried fear mongering the flu

  2. Ivermectin is effective but not patented, therefore not profitable. They mention younger people and then show an overweight 50 year old 🤦🏽‍♂️

  3. I'm not far from Branson, I had Covid19 in Nov 2020. I was vaccinated in March 2021..I still wear a mask..not taking any chances and for one it's out of love.

  4. Not to mention the Lying state of Florida and which I live in that has slowed their reporting down and act like we do not have Delta here and people keep coming and going

  5. The mutations are beyond us that they will be more variants. People pay attention! Look at what happened in all the parts of the world do you think the Delta variant is the worst? We have not seen anything yet!

  6. We speak about people that are not vaccinated as if they are not a part of the whole. We have to remember these states who have lower vaccinations are part of us and what happens to them will happen to us we need to stop separating ourselves from everyone like we did with India at first before we realize we needed to help them to stop the spread

  7. I wish they will stop just saying people need to get vaccinated! They're not going to do it so please stop trying to sell that like a used car salesman! It is time to find another way! You're going to have to bring back the mask mandate! You ended it too soon and now we are about to be in a shitstorm

  8. F*** the goals Delta variant and Delta variant plus is about to lay the smackdown on us here in the United States because we did not listen we believe that we are special and we do not take this seriously

  9. They have some naive liberals commenting is this forum. Believing everything the left media is pushing on you does not make you intelligent. Just look up population in 2019 and population in 2021. 7.7 billion and 7.8 billion respectively and ask yourself, is this really a pandemic or are you being manipulated? Lol. I can tell you this, the population is about to drop by a lot, and it will be the suckers getting vaccinated, boy, y'all are gullible

  10. The collective unconscious is catching up. The term "vaccine" is being shed for the more accurate clinical ambivalence – "shot" or "jab".

  11. Using the word pandemic for covid 19 is a disgrace and fake news. Look up the bubonic plague if you want a true definition of a pandemic

  12. Amazing how they show the states least affected the first time ,and now this variant is targeting those areas . Coincidence I think not ! no shot for me there are so many ways to get a full strength immune system . Do your research you don't need some unproven concocted potion that will destroy you .

  13. "Missouri leads U.S. in most COVID cases per capita, driven by Delta variant" thereby motivating us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to "Convince It Forward" for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more "Mourning In America." Thus, we're hoping for the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the Alpha lineage mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, & Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current COVID vaccines no longer effective.

  14. America is very poor at identifying viruses and their variants, what makes you think the delta variant originated in India?

  15. Hospitals should not be admitting these people with covid. They had their chance to get vaccinated, they refused to do their civic duty, they should be forced to die in the streets or at home

  16. Why is the media lying to people about the vaccinations preventing the Delta variant. India distinctly said that the Moderna vaccine was not affective against that strand. Folks watch the international news please.
