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.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky

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

Greene, Missouri is the highest.

What a difference 1 month makes — the case growth in Greene County, Missouri

I’m increasingly concerned about what impact this will have on the return to school late next month — especially with the reported incidence of Delta among children. Recommend schools retain masking protocols through the fall.

I’ve always been logically driven. I like to think I look at things broadly and draw observations that may not be represented by main stream media.
