Delta Rising: Louisiana and Nevada added to the list. A pandemic of the unvaccinated.

Quote: “This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

The Delta variant is spreading quickly among unvaccinated people in the US. Cases are up 70%, hospitalizations have increased 36%, and deaths are up 26% from the prior week, Walensky said. 97% of people hospitalized due to Covid-19 are unvaccinated.

Not the right trajectory

Cases and fatalities are on the rise in Louisiana; Arkansas; Nevada; Missouri; Alabama; Kentucky

The rate of new cases in Arkansas is more than 3x the national average – and more than 10x greater than the states with the lowest rate

76 large counties (over 100,000 people) have high rates of new COVID cases

– here’s the list: Notice the majority Southern concentration – which aligns with low vaccination rates. Greene, Missouri is the highest.
