June 16th COVID-19 New Cases, Vaccinations, Hospitalizations

From NBC: Virtually all hospitalized Covid patients have one thing in common: They’re unvaccinated

From MarketWatch: CDC says Delta COVID variant is ‘of concern,’ as experts warn of higher risks of infection and serious illness

The good news is the vaccines are very effective against the Delta variant for the fully vaccinated. The bad news – for the unvaccinated – is that the Delta variant is much more contagious than the previous variants, and also appears to be more virulent. Since it takes 5 to 6 week to become fully vaccinated, the unvaccinated should get their first shot now!
