Isn't It Ironic? Most Vaccinated State Has Highest Percentage Of Active Cases

Written By BlabberBuzz | Saturday, 15 January 2022 05:15

COVID continues to cause surges across America, and while deaths remain low, some state governments are taking drastic action to cease the spread. Staffing problems have been an issue for many hospitals around the nation, spurring emergency orders from some to relieve those shortages.

The country's lead in infection rate is Rhode Island, which has by far run away from the rest of the pack. The state, where 77 percent of residents are completely vaccinated, is registering 507 positive cases every day for every 100,000 residents - a 226 percent growth over the past two weeks. No other state has over 400 new cases every day per every 100,000 residents.

On Wednesday, the state's Governor Dan McKee held his first COVID briefing of the new year, stating that 175,000 COVID tests were administered this week, meaning that 17% of the state tested in one week. Ninety percent of the state's infections are estimated to be caused by the highly contagious Omicron variant - up from 45% from last week.

At the briefing, McKee announced that he would raise testing capacity by distributing 100,000 at-home COVID tests, boost vaccination capacity, and reduce the stress on hospital systems by deploying the National Guard.

In Virginia, a state of emergency has been declared by the Governor in an effort to fight capacity shortages throughout a surge in cases. Under the order, hospitals will be permitted to expand capacity and some regulations on staffing roles will be lifted.

Over the past two weeks, the state has suffered a 153 percent growth in cases, with 200 of every 100,000 residents testing positive every day - both figures putting the state towards the middle of the pack. Virginia is suffering 0.16 deaths per every 100,000 residents every day, the third-lowest rate of any U.S. state.

New Jersey has been one of the hardest hit states by the Omicron-fed COVID surge tearing through America. The state has the fourth-highest infection rate in America, with 350 of every 100,000 residents testing positive for the virus daily. Just four states are logging over 300 cases per every 100,000 residents daily.

A public health emergency has been instituted in the state to fight increasing cases. The orders from Gov Phil Murphy include increased vaccine rollout and testing efforts. Mask mandates will be reinstated in some parts of the state.

Cases in the state have doubled over the past two weeks, though the week-to-week growth of cases has contracted in recent weeks. Many officials think the current surge is approaching its peak, and New Jersey could be an instance of the Omicron variant burning out.
