Covid 19 can kill anyone, especially people with underlying conditions like diabetes that make them more vulnerable to infections due to a weakened immune system. Taking precautions by avoiding people and places that may be harboring the virus, wearing masks when out in public, and getting vaccinated as well as keeping blood sugars under control is vital for all of us, especially diabetics and people with other medical conditions. The delta Covid virus appears to be more virulent, more spreadable, more contagious, and more deadly, especially to younger people. We all need to learn from watching what's happening in other parts of the world. In India, there were so many dead bodies, they didn't know what to do with them except burn them.
Viruses are transmitted through the air. Wear masks and avoid crowds. It's common sense.
