America’s recovery from COVID-19 is being threatened by a summer surge with hospitalizations and deaths up nationwide.

Now the highly contagious Delta variant is highlighting the need for more vaccinations around the country.

Seven months after the first shots were administered, 49% of Americans are fully vaccinated.

Florida is the nation’s worst hotspot, accounting for more than one in five of all new cases.

New coronavirus cases have spiked almost 50% across the nation, with increases in every state.
