Let's Discuss more

Why Are Cases Rising?

There are several reasons for this increase. One reason is the spread of the BA.5 subvariant of Omicron, which is more transmissible than previous variants.

Other Factors Contributing to the Rise in Cases

Another reason is that people are socializing more now that the weather is warmer. They are traveling, going to bars and restaurants, and attending large events.

Other Factors Contributing to the Rise in Cases

The lifting of mask mandates and other COVID restrictions is also contributing to the rise in cases. When people are not required to wear masks, they are more likely to spread the virus, even if they are asymptomatic.

The Decline in Vaccination Rates

The decline in vaccination rates is also a factor. As of September 2023, only 66% of Americans are fully vaccinated.

This means that a significant portion of the population is not protected from the virus.

How to Protect Yourself from COVID?

The good news is that the vaccines are still effective at preventing serious illness and death. Even if you do get sick, you are much less likely to be hospitalized or die if you are vaccinated.


The COVID pandemic is not over yet. We all need to do our part to slow the spread of the virus and protect ourselves and our loved ones.
