From our county public health office;
I'm not surprised that the number of cases in colleges is very low since most of them are requiring vaccination.
What percent of the eligible population is vaccinated Beer? Here we are at 80% of the eligible (age 12+) being fully vaccinated, 89% partially. Still we are having really high Delta cases. 80% of the hospitalized are unvaccinated, 84% in the ICU are unvaccinated. The majority of total deaths are in the older age category (186 over 80, 83 age 70-79), 35 of the 345 deaths to date are under 60 including 1 in the 20-29 group.
Things were going really well into the end of June and the Gov removed all restrictions. Cases have risen sharply since mid July. The press keeps asking the Gov if he would consider reinstating some restrictions but he is fighting it, waiting for our cases to drop as Delta cases have in other countries. At first we were told it would be a 6 week "event", now they say 9. Guess we'll find out, we've got to be pretty close to those 9 weeks now and every day since mid August is over 100 new cases to well over 200 most days and over 300 some days ... higher than any previous day in the pandemic. Our highest previous day was 266 back in March when a lot of people were getting vaccinated and the case counts dropped pretty quickly.
Got my booster yesterday. Arm was sore overnight and this morning. Decreasing now so I guess the chip they injected has about finished sending data
