🇺🇸@COVID19Up: Christopher Murray, the director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, said on Wednesday (July 7) that not testing vaccinated people—as the U.S. CDC currently recommends—may be overlooking some SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

“We actually have states where hospitalizations are going up more than cases,” Murray warned, adding that “we’re probably missing a bunch of transmission in vaccinated individuals.”

New data emerging from Israel suggest Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is less effective against infections caused by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, which may explain the uptick in U.S. infection despite widespread vaccinations.
