Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) variants continue to emerge worldwide. South America is struggling with the Gamma variant, while the Delta variant is the cause of most new infections across the U.S. and Europe. These variants have repeatedly shown the ability to evade both vaccine-induced and natural immunity. The rising case numbers in Europe have even forced some countries back into costly and restrictive lockdowns.
