Delta variant in wastewater spikes, cases follow | Coronavirus – Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City, Missouri 2021-07-19 18:45:00 –

Kansas City, Missouri (KCTV)-The Kansas City Department of Health reports that cases of COVID-19 have tripled in the last 30 days, primarily due to delta mutations.

This is not a surprise to microbiologists working in Missouri. Mark Johnson predicted this.

Johnson studies wastewater and viral load, and Mizurians flush the toilet. This is one of the most accurate predictors of the pandemic.

Johnson identified Branson as the first to detect the delta variant. He then moved to Ricking, Missouri and Lin County.

The variant did not behave like the previous variant. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. British (Alpha) variants started in big cities and then moved to rural areas, while Delta started in rural areas and moved to cities.

“It’s very contagious. It seems to have taken over the entire state in about three weeks,” Johnson said.

The numbers were updated over the weekend.The red triangle means that the viral load is increasing

“When it starts, it’s just rising,” Johnson said. “The first places were like Joplin and Springfield. When I last checked, their numbers are still growing. They haven’t reached the plateau yet.”

Johnson is paying attention to Columbia, Missouri, Boone County. It boasts the highest immunization rate in the state, but the region also suffers from Delta variants.

“I think the message that not everyone is receiving it is that this pandemic will end when everyone is infected or vaccinated,” Johnson said.

Delta variants continue to spread, while other variants have disappeared, Johnson said.
