Most Recent Week
*** Focus on Utah ***

The seven-day average of the number of Covid-19 confirmed cases grew straight up since the last report on July 4, 2021. Deaths are rising commencerate with the new cases of Covid-19. The delta variant is wrecking havoc accross the United States, most notably where vaccination rates are low.

864 is the highest since February 14 (considering only Sunday data).

The Delta variant of the virus is overloading (or close to overloading) hospitals across much of the United States. In Utah, we are now above the 85% threshold utilization threshold. Quoting from www.coronavirus.utah.gov, this means "When 85% capacity is reached, Utah will be functionally out of staffed ICU beds, indicating an overwhelmed hospital system."

Most Utah counties are now listed as being at a "high level of spread condition." One notable exception is Summit County, where the vaccination rate is the highest in the state.

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

Among the states most affected at this time are Florida, Texas, California, Nevada. Missouri, Arkansas. All of which are states with LOW vaccination rates

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

Across the rest of the world, Southeast Asia appears to be the hardest hit. Changes since 7/4/2021

In Europe

In the Americas

meanwhile, Canada was UP only 14,572
