COVID-19 weekly summary
Hospitalization increases, vaccine rates by age, new Greek naming system for variants
Hospitalizations: There has been a sharp 71 percent increase in the number of hospitalized cases that GCPH is tracking through case investigation. This is a reminder that the virus is not gone and not everyone reacts to the virus the same way. Some people are at much greater risk of severe illness. Overall, there are fewer cases and hospitalizations, however approximately 15 percent of all of the current COVID cases are hospitalized.
Incidence & Test Positivity: The incidence and test positivity rate have been stable even with people moving around more. This stabilization is being attributed to the vaccine’s effectiveness and increased summer outdoor-based activities.
Vaccines: 12 to 15 year-olds had a 30 percent increase in vaccinations and 16 to 18 year olds had a 40% percent increase in becoming fully vaccinated. Many 12 to 15 year olds are now eligible for their second doses.
