The Biden Administration will deploy Delta Variant response teams across the territory of the U.S., especially to the places with low vaccination rates.
The teams consist of officials from CDC, DOH and Human Resources, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the CNN reported.

The primary attention was on communities with low vaccination, and Biden won’t manage to vaccinate 70% of the population by July 4.
At this point, only 47.2% of Americans are completely vaccinated.
The White House has deployed similar response teams in the past, but this is the first time they are focused on the Delta variant, a White House official said. These response teams will conduct surge testing, provide therapeutics like monoclonal antibodies and deploy federal personnel to areas that need support staff for vaccinations.
The White House coronavirus team is spearheading this effort and officials expect the teams will help with everything from boosting testing, providing supplies, and potentially increasing paid media efforts targeting regions where vaccinations are low.
While these response teams are being sent to prop up communities, officials believe vaccinations are the number one way to stop the spread and recognize there could be a limit to their efforts. Most US adults who plan to get vaccinated against Covid-19 have already done so, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation report released this week.
Rand Paul, the Republican Senator, shared that the Delta Variant was a pretext to bring back the masks and the lockdowns.
Don’t let the fearmongers win. New public England study of delta variant shows 44 deaths out of 53,822 (.08%) in unvaccinated group. Hmmm.
