Yeah, I think so. That is, I am sure I read it or heard it somewhere, but didn't check the evidence. If you get infected with beta the consequences are more serious than alpha or delta, but the good news is that it is less infectious than delta.Steve,
Do we know that the Beta variant is “more deadly”?
Edit: Actually the point I heard was that the vaccines we have been given protect us against the more serious consequences of catching alpha and delta, but are a lot less effective against beta. So it is more about our vaccine protection, rather than the beta variant per se.
