Increased Delta Variant Cases Spotted in South

The recent coronavirus Variant, Delta, is becoming the most dominant strain in the United States, with cases doubling up every two weeks, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As of June 19, the Variant was responsible for only 20 percent of the newly discovered cases. Just four days past, the CDC stated that the delta Variant is a Variant of concern’ and mentioning the growing evidence that it is more infectious and causes more severe diseases.

Only 32 percent of the people in Alabama are entirely vaccinated against Covid-19, as compared to Vermont, which is considered one of the best-performing states, where 64 percent of its population is currently entirely vaccinated, according to the reports of CDC.

The situation is just the same next door in Mississippi. The total of the fully vaccinated individuals is estimated to be below 29 percent, leaving the vast majority of citizens vulnerable to the infection.Many citizens of Mississippi who are left unvaccinated are from poor and rural areas of the state, and they may not be able to afford the transportation charges to towns and suitable supplies of the vaccines.

And other resources in many rural areas are already worried, making it thought-provoking for these societies to deal with the Covid-19 outbreaks and hindering the outreach efforts to battle the vaccine hesitancy in those people.The low vaccination rates in the rural areas of Tennessee are increasing new Covid-19 cases at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, as told by the director of the center’s health intensive care unit, Dr. Todd Rice.
