White House COVID Response Team Reports 1 in 3 Cases Nationwide were in Florida and Texas Over Past Week

Yahoo News recently wrote an article regarding the White House COVID Response Team announcement which revealed that 1 in 3 nationwide cases were in the states of Florida and Texas this past week. Jeff Zients, the White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator stated that “We remain concerned about the continued rise in cases driven by the Delta variant. These cases are concentrated in communities with lower vaccination rates. In fact, the seven states with the lowest vaccination rates represent just about 8 and 1/2% of the US population but account for more than 17% of cases. And one in three cases nationwide occurred in Florida and Texas this past week.” He also stresses the unpredictability of the virus and the situation. Also stating that “From the start, we’ve known that this virus is unpredictable. That’s why we spent the last six months preparing for every scenario.” For individuals that are considered the most vulnerable, he recommends them to get the vaccine since this is considered to be one of the most effective tools in this fight against the virus.
