Across the country in all 50 states there’s been a rise in new COVID-19 cases. In a majority of these cases, it is the unvaccinated who are being infected.

Some cities, that have seen a rise, such as Los Angeles, are re-instating indoor mask mandates. It also seems they are divided between the vaccinated and unvaccinated in new COVID-19 cases.

The Louisiana Department of Health warns that COVID-19 cases among people who are not yet fully vaccinated are surging, and all people in Louisiana, especially those who are not yet vaccinated, are at an elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 as the more contagious Delta variant continues to spread.

Louisiana is currently experiencing widespread increases in the spread of COVID-19. Since early May, 19,200 new COVID-19 cases have been reported among Louisiana residents, with 94% of these cases occurring among individuals who were not fully vaccinated. On July 13th, LDH announced 9 additional COVID-19 deaths; all individuals were unvaccinated.

In the City of New Orleans top health leaders are warning residents that coronavirus cases are climbing across the City due to the Delta variant.

“The data is very clear,” said Dr. Joseph Kanter, Louisiana’s State Health Officer. “COVID-19 cases among unvaccinated people in Louisiana are surging. COVID-19 hospitalizations, percent positivity and COVID-19 outbreaks are all on the rise. All people in Louisiana, especially those who are not yet vaccinated, should know they are now at increased risk of exposure to COVID-19 due to the more transmissible Delta variant, and they should consider their personal risk and their family’s risk.”

According to NOLA Ready, COVID-19 cases in the City have increased by nine times in the past two weeks.

There are over 300 confirmed cases of the Delta variant in the City according to NOLA Ready.
