States with Republican governors saw more cases, more deaths.
Daily covid vaccination rates are falling nationwide. Gaps in vaccine uptake are starting to show, especially in rural America. That leaves many communities grappling with an imperfect pandemic endgame.
There are some signs that cases may be starting to flatten, but disease activity remains high
Their mission is to close the gap between the vaccination rates of the nation’s most vulnerable people and the rest of the population.
How did we get here? Even with millions getting vaccinated?
IF we’re all vaccinated, we’ll be largely safe from the worst ravages of the infection even if it does break out.
WHAT THAT MEANS FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND OUR WAY FORWARD
At the end of two weeks, each county will be re-evaluated.
Findings may explain why people can produce high levels of the coronavirus and spread infection before symptoms appear.
Shedding excess weight could help reduce the risk of developing severe COVID.

After genome sequencing of over 10,000 COVID-19 cases in India, researchers have discovered a new variant with two new mutations which may be better at evading the immune system.
B.1.617, or what has been called the “Indian double mutation”, had two mutations linked to increased transmissibility and an ability to evade the immune system.
Republicans are the most vaccine resistant; nearly 3 in 10 say they don’t want one. The share is greater among rural, Republican men, 35% of whom don’t want to get a vaccine.
Reputable COVID-19 testing options are available across the county, which provide free testing with rapid and highly accurate results.
