Not the happiest of news for your Thursday, but important nonetheless. COVID-19 cases may be beginning to spike due to a new variant of the virus. NWA health care professionals have seen a 200% increase in cases since the beginning of the month.
- The approach: Only 33% of the state is vaccinated, and while this is an encouraging number, it may not be enough to stop virus from spreading.
- Fully prepared: Medical centers in the area are fully prepared for a potential surge, due to learnings from last year. However, this wave of the virus should not be taken lightly.
Still not vaccinated, but interested? You can receive a generous dose HERE.
