The Pandemic Is Roaring Back Where Vaccination Rates are Low – Mother Jones

On July 17, 2020, more than four months into a global pandemic, Arkansas was averaging 708 new COVID-19 cases per day. One year and three FDA-approved vaccines later, Arkansas is now averaging 1,017 cases per day. The record numbers show what can happen when, despite the spread of a highly infectious new strain of the virus, most people fail to get fully vaccinated.

Only 44 percent of adults in the state are fully vaccinated, compared to 59 percent across the nation.
