Undervaccinated COVID Clusters In Texas & 4 Other US Locations Putting Entire Country At Risk

A new data analysis has identified clusters of unvaccinated people, most of them in Texas and other southern states, that are vulnerable to surges in COVID-19 cases and could become breeding grounds for even more deadly COVID-19 variants.

CNN: Five undervaccinated clusters put the entire United States at risk

Those vulnerable clusters put all of the United States -- and to some extent, the world -- at risk for going back to 2020, since high-transmission areas can become breeding grounds for Covid-19 variants that could go on to evade Covid-19 vaccines.

"These clusters of unvaccinated people are what is standing in the way of us putting this virus down permanently," said Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a CNN medical analyst and professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University.

The five most significant clusters together include more than 15 million people. Of those, only 27.9% are fully vaccinated -- far lower than the national rate of 47.6%.

4. And vast areas of this region impacted by ongoing COVID infections do not have the facilities to

handle such a large influx of sick COVID patients, thus putting a strain on medical resources outside the region. Much of this area is also rural in nature, thus putting a severe strain on the infrastructure and labor needs of this area too when so many fall sick and quite a few unfortunately pass.

I have seen on DU some of the governors (1 at least) beseech the populations of their state to vaccinate, but I don't know if this will be effective or not. I doubt it since the mindset is so dead set (an ironic accidental choice of words I'll leave in place) against anything against what Pres. Joe Biden or anybody else of authority says that needs to be done.

Like one DUer said in the trend, die then, no great loss, since these people don't care about anybody else but themselves. It's like we got a million typhoid Mary's out there now...
