Fox News Coverage of the Delta Variant
Fox News has been providing comprehensive coverage of the Delta Variant, also known as the India Variant. The network has been reporting on the spread of the Delta Variant and the potential impact it could have on the United States.
Fox News Anchors Weigh In
Several Fox News anchors have weighed in on the Biden administration’s handling of the Delta variant of the coronavirus.
Bret Baier said on “Special Report” that the U.S. is “way behind” in its efforts to contain the spread of the variant, which was first identified in India.
“We are way behind in this variant fight,” Baier said. “The CDC says this is now responsible for more than 20% of all new cases in the United States.”
He added that the Delta variant is now “spreading rapidly” in the U.S., and said that there is a “real concern” that it could become the dominant strain here.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson also addressed the issue on his show, saying that the Biden administration “hasn’t been honest” about the Delta variant.
“They continue to pretend it’s not a big deal,” Carlson said. “But it is a big deal.”
He added that while some variants are more dangerous than others, all variants are cause for concern.
“This one is particularly worrisome because it is spreading so quickly,” Carlson said of the Delta variant.
Fox News Contributors Weigh In
Fox News has been featuring the Delta Variant prominently in its coverage, with several contributors offering their opinions on the situation.
Some, like Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro, downplayed the threat posed by the variant, dismissing it as “not really that big a deal.”
Others, like former Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka, were more alarmist in their assessments, warning that the variant could ” overwhelm” the health care system if left unchecked.
And still others, like Fox News host Tucker Carlson, called for a more nuanced approach, arguing that while the variant is “clearly more dangerous” than previous strains, officials should not “panic” or overreact.
Delta Variant Cases in the U.S.
Cases of the Delta variant are on the rise in the United States, and Fox News is taking notice. The network recently ran a segment on the variant, which is also known as B.1.617.2. The segment featured interviews with Dr. Peter Hotez, a professor of pediatrics and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, and Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a former FDA commissioner.
CDC Tracking of the Delta Variant
The CDC is now tracking the spread of the B.1.617.2 “Delta” variant of SARS-CoV-2 in the United States.
As of June 7, 2021, the CDC had received reports of 581 cases of the Delta variant in 26 states, with 73% of those cases occurring in Michigan.
The majority of cases (84%) have been reported in adults aged 18 years or older, and 16% have been reported in children aged 17 years or younger. The median age of patients with the Delta variant is 33 years (range: 2-79 years).
Compared to other variants, the Delta variant is more transmissible and is associated with a higher risk of hospitalization and death.
health officials are urging people to get vaccinated as soon as possible to help prevent the spread of this more virulent form of the virus.

Delta Variant Cases in the U.K.
The U.K. is seeing a surge in Delta Variant cases, and Fox News is taking notice. In a recent article, Fox News spoke to experts about the variants and what we can expect in the coming weeks.
UK Public Health England Tracking of the Delta Variant
The COVID-19 variant first identified in India is of increasing concern in the United Kingdom, with Public Health England saying it now accounts for more than 60% of new infections.
The so-called Delta variant, which is also known as B.1.617.2, was first detected in India in October 2020. It has since been identified in at least 96 countries, according to the World Health Organization.
In the UK, the variant now accounts for more than 60% of new infections, according to Public Health England. As of June 7, 2021, there have been 441,371 confirmed cases of the Delta variant in the UK, with 2,323 people hospitalized and 21 deaths reported.
The increase in cases has led some experts to warn that the UK could see a “third wave” of COVID-19 infections. However, other experts say it is too early to tell if this will happen.
The UK is not the only country experiencing an increase in cases of the Delta variant. In Brazil, the variant is responsible for more than 90% of new infections, according to a report from The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal.
Implications of the Delta Variant
Last night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson devoted a segment of his show to the so-called Delta variant of the coronavirus, now raging in India and rapidly spreading in the United Kingdom. The variant, first identified in India, has now been found in at least 30 other countries, according to the World Health Organization.
For the U.S.
The United States is now grappling with a more contagious variant of the coronavirus first identified in India, and health officials say it could become the nation’s dominant strain by fall.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Monday that the so-called Delta variant, which was first detected in the United Kingdom, has already started spreading in the U.S.
The agency said the variant is responsible for about 6% of all Covid-19 cases in the country, but is growing quickly and could make up more than half of all infections by September.
The CDC’s Dr. Jay Butler said the variant is “probably” more deadly than other strains, but added that it’s too early to know for sure.
Butler said the agency is “increasingly concerned” about the spread of the variant and urged Americans to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Monday that while it’s not yet known if the Delta variant is more deadly, it is clear that it is “more transmissible.”
Fauci said the best way to protect yourself from any strain of Covid-19 is to get vaccinated and to continue wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
For the U.K.
The U.K. is dealing with a resurgence in cases of the coronavirus, and a large part of that is due to the so-called “Delta” variant, first identified in India.
The variant is now responsible for more than half of new infections in the country, according to the British government.
It’s unclear exactly how much more contagious the Delta variant is, but scientists say it’s likely to be at least 30% more transmissible than other variants.
The U.K.’s concern is that the Delta variant could overwhelm hospitals and delay plans to fully reopen the country on June 21.
Critics say the government should have acted sooner to stop the spread of the variant, which was first identified in India in early April.
The government has since put travel restrictions in place for people coming from India and implemented a strict quarantine regime for those who do enter the country.
What People Are Saying About the Delta Variant
As the United Kingdom begins to open up after months of lockdown, a new variant of the coronavirus, known as the Delta variant, is spreading. This variant is more transmissible than the original strain and is now responsible for more than half of new infections in the UK.
On Social Media
The Delta variant, first identified in India, has now been detected in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and elsewhere. The variant is considered more contagious than other variants and is of particular concern as it appears to be more resistant to some vaccines.
Here’s what people are saying about the Delta variant on social media:
Twitter user @drbensonc: “The #Delta #COVID19 variant is 70% more transmissible than other variants & emerging as a major global threat. With mass vaccination underway in many countries, it’s vital that we prevent its spread by adhering to public health measures.”
Twitter user @kimberlyfrye: “We have got to do better. The #Delta #COVID19 variant is spreading like wildfire in the UK and has now been found in the US. We need to step up our game if we want to avoid another wave of this pandemic.”
Facebook user Lisa Pearce: “So worried about this new #Delta variant of COVID-19. PLEASE everyone double down on precautions until we can get more people vaccinated.”
