Is '1' grammatical?

What is the subject of 'underscoring'?


I think the intended meaning is:

Delta is now the variant of the coronavirus identified third most often in California, according to new data. That fact underscores that the variant is highly contagious, a danger to people who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Would you agree with that?
Could '1' be parsed in such a way as to mean that?

Gratefully,
Navi
