The SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic - A Utah Perspective
July 4, 2021
Publication Note:
This is the first report using a new monthly report on the SARS-CoV-2 global pandemic.
The seven day average of new cases of Covid-19 in Utah.
Most Recent Week
*** Focus on Utah ***

The seven-day average of the number of Covid-19 confirmed cases grew straight up for the first four weeks following the last report on May 30, 2021. During the most recent week, the 7-day average dropped by a small amount, so small that it does not suggest the rate is going down. The "delta" variant has now been found in all 50 states. States with lower vaccination rates have been experiencing more issues with Covid-19 than other states.

Utah is in the bottom half of states according to the vaccination rate. Utah now reports 54% of all people aged 12+ are fully vaccinated. If we were to run the statistic against the full state population, Utah drops significantly because of the number of children under age 12, while states with fewer children age under 12 look much better. So be careful you look at how each state is measuring its rate.

The total number of doses administered is now 3,261,315 which is up 280,363 from May 29. That averages out to about 56,072 vaccinations per week.

*** Focus on the United States ****

Over the past 5 weeks, the U.S. continues to record about 91,000 new cases per week (13,000 cases per day). Deaths over the past 5 weeks have averaged 3,126 per week (or about 1,857 deaths per day). The Biden goal of 70% of adults receiving at least one dose by today was not reached. The current number is 67%.

*** Focus on the rest of the World ***

Nations in South Asia are still struggling with the pandemic. India averaged 530,000 new cases per week with 20,000 deaths per week. Nations such as Thailand, Taiwan, and Viet Nam each recorded around 50% of their total case count over the past week. Thailand 296,000 cases today (139,697), Taiwan 15,030 today (8,160), Viet Nam 19,310 (7,107). New deaths are reflective of the increased case counts.

In Europe, the U.K averaged 84,000 cases per week, while deaths were small at 101 per week. France averaged 23,441 new cases per week with 591 deaths per week. There could be several reasons for this difference such as the use of antibody cocktails in the U.K. versus not using them in France. The real reason could be something else entirely.

Brazil and Russia are both not doing well. Brazil is averaging 445,000 new cases per week and 15,000 deaths per week. Russia had 107,000 new cases per week with 3,300 deaths over the same period.
