Unfortunately, the Covid 19 cases are rising around all 50 states, and now it seems that health officials are saying that it’s pretty clear that the unvaccinated people are driving the increase in cases. More than this, most of them are at high risks, officials say, as reported by CNN.
“This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during Friday’s White House Covid-19 briefing.
“We are seeing outbreaks of cases in parts of the country that have low vaccination coverage because unvaccinated people are at risk,” Walensky said.
Also, it’s important to note that “communities that are fully vaccinated are generally faring well.”
According to White House coronavirus coordinator Jeff Zients, just four states made up 40% of Covid-19 cases in the past week – “with one in five cases occurring in Florida alone.”
The vaccination rate is slowing down
CNN also noted that experts say that the slowing vaccination rates trigger the disaster.
“Our biggest concern is that we are going to continue to see preventable cases, hospitalizations and, sadly, deaths among the unvaccinated,” Walensky said.

It’s been also reported that the danger is fueled by the growing prevalence of the Delta variant, which was first identified in India.

Some vaccinated people are dying from Covid 19
Fox News notes that almost half of the country’s recent COVID-19 deaths are of people who have been vaccinated.
But doctors and scientists don’t sound the alarm about the apparently high proportion of deaths among the vaccinated population.
