Interesting data coming out of the UK where 95% of current covid infections are the delta variant. The numbers in the table are only for people who were treated in emergency rooms from Feb.1, 2021 onward. The original alpha strain accounts for most deaths with a cfr of 1.9%. The delta variant had a cfr of 0.1%. What is most important is that this is for people who were so sick they ended up at an emergency room. Since most people infected are asymptomatic or were mildly ill and self-treated at home, these cfr values are anywhere from 2 to 4 times inflated from the whole infected population. Delta is NOT dangerous. Link to the government report is in the first comment.
