Inside Louisiana hospital, with most COVID-19 patients the number is rapidly increasing. “The contagious Delta Variant is spreading particularly among unvaccinated Americans… COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths are increasing particularly in the states that have not promoted getting vaccinated”, according to CNN.

The Washington Post is reporting that in the past week, the US reported that new cases rose 47.6% and Hospitalizations 34%. Since December 14, only 47% of Americans have completed vaccination. Many in minority communities are particularly vulnerable.

Florida leads all other states with the highest number of new cases according to MSNBC. “In Florida, 231 people were reported dead of COVID-19 in the week ending Sunday. In the week before that, 172 people were reported dead.”

Here is a sample from the Washington Post of increases in new cases in other states this past week.

U.S overall………………………48%

South Dakota…………………..300%

Rhode Island……………………200%

Alaska……………………………120%

Maine…………………………….108%

Lousiana…………………………100%

Mississippi……………………….,98%

Alabama…………………………..98%

As of July 1, over 34,233,000 cases have been reported and more than 609,000 have died.

“As the more transmittable Delta variant spreads throughout the US, President Joe Biden is scrambling to find ways to get more people vaccinated, including going door to door,” says Sarah Al-Ashani of INSIDER.

Fox implemented its own internal vaccine passport, so many hosts who have been railing against the vaccine have been fully vaccinated, according to International Business Times.

People of faith, please join President Biden in encouraging family, friends, and neighbors to get vaccinated right away. You will not only remove your life from being at risk of this horrible sickness and possibly losing your life but you will also be protecting your family and loved ones from them contracting the horrid Delta Variant. What could be more pro-life, pro-family, and pro-neighbor than reducing the serious risk for you and those you care about?

In fact, we urge all our churches, serving all cultures, to either arrange to offer vaccines and frequently encourage people to visit local vaccine locations if your church is not able to offer it.

We would love to post your stories of churches offering vaccines or how you have promoted your members getting vaccinated to spare people you care about from the risk of contracting this new deadly Delta Variant!

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
