GOP Arkansas Gov Warns Of Surging COVID Cases

Little Rock’s ABC News affiliate reports:

At a press conference, Governor Asa Hutchinson gave some staggering statistics regarding a resurgence in COVID-19 cases in the state as the Delta variant spreads and affects, statistics show, those who are unvaccinated.

On Thursday, July 1, Hutchinson announced a spike of 700 positive cases in a single day, a number that hasn’t been seen since February in Arkansas.

Of the nearly 1,000 people that have died from COVID since mid-January in Arkansas, 99% of them were not vaccinated. Plus, most of our active cases are of people who are not fully immunized.
