Three states accounted for roughly one-third of last week’s coronavirus-related deaths, according to federal data.

Of the U.S.’s 9,500 deaths, a third came from Texas, Georgia and Alabama, ABC News reported.

The United States has logged approximately 42 million coronavirus cases and 679,000 related deaths since the start of the pandemic — both tops globally — according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

But despite the widespread availability of vaccines, only about 55% of the total U.S. population has been fully vaccinated as of Wednesday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
