From a big birthday party, the party has turned into a family reunion, the Delta variant will have won the party desires of the former president Barack Obama.

Barack Obama turned 60 last Wednesday and he had initially organized a big party in Martha’s Vineyard, in Massachusetts, this weekend.

With the explosion of the cases due to the Delta variant, Barack Obama decided to reduce this big event 

Only very close friends and family of the former president will be invited to the anniversary 

This anniversary had been planned for months but the latest figures of contamination forced Barack Obama to relive the difficult moments of the year 2020 where parties and weddings were limited to 20 people.

Several stars such as George Clooney, director Steven Spielberg and talk show host Oprah Winfrey were invited, but criticism of the event grew with the new cases of the variant delta.

Daily cases rose to an average not seen in months, while the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that masks should once again be worn indoors for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people due to the increase in infections.

Barack Obama asked the guests to get tested, but the situation became unmanageable, even President Joe Biden decided not to attend the party.

Republicans have been openly critical of Barack Obama for hosting the event, including Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, who tweeted over the weekend that if former President Donald Trump had scheduled such a celebration, Democrats would have flayed him.
