Updated on

Top U.S. infectious-disease expert Anthony Fauci said the delta variant of the coronavirus is causing a significant increase in infections and the Biden administration is “practically pleading” with people to get vaccinated.

Delta is much more capable of spreading from person to person than earlier variants, Fauci said in an interview on Bloomberg TV’s “Balance of Power with David Westin,” stressing that vaccines can protect people from clinically significant disease.
