COVID Cases Up 316% from Last Labor Day: Report

The number of coronavirus infections reported on Labor Day is up 316% from last year.

Nearly twice as many deaths were reported compared to last year’s holiday, USA Today reported, citing Johns Hopkins University data.

Hospitalizations have increased 158% from last year at this time, according to U.S. Health and Human Services data.

Public health experts blame the surge in the coronavirus on both the highly transmissible delta variant and a number of Americans who won’t get vaccinated.

As of Tuesday, just 53% of the total U.S. population has been fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
