COVID-19 cases totaling more than 3,000 and an additional 3 deaths occurred this past Sunday as surge infections were driven by the new Delta Variant have continued for the sixth week. When will this nonsense end! This is not a national emergency situation. The common flu may be more serious but not the death and destruction painted by the powers that be and CDC! People do survive COVID-19 and go on to live full lives and not have devastating effects from this destructive virus. Not everyone has to be hospitalized and put on a ventilator to survive COVID-19. Many people just quarantine like the common flu and take care of themselves at home and rest and try to eat healthy food and take vitamins to build one’s strength.
COVID-19: New Infections Ensue
According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, there have been a reported 3,307 new infections, bringing the total since the pandemic began in early 2020 to 986,082. Dying in the state from COVID is now a total of 18,600 people.
The health department on Saturday reported 3,195 new cases and 36 additional deaths.
Infections Dropped for Several at One Point
For several months, the number of new infections had dropped below 1,000 in the spring and early Summer. That is until the new variant began hitting Arizona in July. Then the seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in Arizona has, in fact, risen over the past two weeks from 2,311 new cases per day on August 6th to 2,452 on Aug. 20.
Moreover, that has, in fact, led to a slightly higher number of people who decide to get a COVID-19 vaccine in most current weeks.
In fact, more than half of Arizona’s population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The virus has supposedly caused more hospitalizations to continue to climb this week. It is the highest number since mid-February.
There are 462 people in intensive care and more than 1,800 people hospitalized.
