Leaked CDC Document Says COVID Delta Variant Is As Transmissible As Chickenpox

After news of Lil Nas X’s album being practically leaked in its entirety, it turns out that rampant leaks aren’t just plaguing the Hip-Hop community. According to Complex, the CDC has also recently suffered a major leak, as one of its internal documents slipped outside of the organization and landed in The Washington Post’s hands. In response to the leak, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky spoke to CNN and verified the validity of the document and reiterated the severity of the surging Delta variant.

One of the most eye-opening takeaways from the leaked report is that the COVID-19 Delta variant is not only more transmissible than the original strain, but it’s also more transmissible than SARS, Ebola, the common cold, seasonal flu, and smallpox. According to the document, “Delta variant is as transmissible as Chicken Pox.”
