Jim Cramer attributed much of Thursday's market selloff to the delta variant in Thursday's episode of CNBC's Mad Money. "America has one of the best vaccination programs in the world and we're still getting hammered by the delta variant of COVID. Just imagine how bad the situation is in the rest of the world and you'll understand why investors are selling," Scott Rutt wrote in his Mad Money Recap.
Earlier Thursday on TheStreet Live, Cramer touched on the continued market threat of COVID, referencing the psychological impact banning spectators from the upcoming Olympics had on sellers.
Joining Action Alerts PLUS senior analyst Jeff Marks Friday, Cramer said much of the concern impacting markets could be alleviated if more of the world was properly vaccinated.
