La Porte County regresses to Yellow status in state COVID-19 cases

 

As of this week, La Porte County has worsened to Yellow status regarding COVID-19 cases, joining many other areas in the state and nation facing new surges because of the Delta variant of the disease, coupled with the number of Americans who have not been vaccinated. La Porte County had been in Blue, or best, status in the state since June 16.

According to the Indiana Department of Health, as of this week La Porte County had 50 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents. When it reached Blue status in June, it had 27 cases per 100,000 residents. The county now has a 5% all-test positivity rate as compared to a 3.7% rate in June.

The number of deaths in La Porte County this week stood at 225, 4 more than the June 16 report.

    What is a bit concerning is why are some vaccinated people getting Covid-19 and some have died after being vaccinated? I’m sure there are deeper reasons and health conditions, but these are still beta vaccine versions. At least if you’ve had Covid-19, you’ll have your own anti-bodies! Be safe everyone!

      How nice of the unvaccinated to put us back in the yellow. I wonder if these same people thought the polio vaccine was something that wasn’t necessary. For those not intending to get vaccinated, keep thinking about yourself, and not others.

      You do realize that even vaccinated people can get covid and spread it. It isn’t just unvaccinated people spreading this around. The vaccines are still trials so try to be kind to your fellow man.

        Wrong…The percentage of people with the vaccine spreading this virus is very low.
        Get vaccinated, I'm tired of making excuses for those choosing to spread this.

    The vaccines are NOT still in the trial stage. They are good and working vaccines. What’s with you who refuse to get something for free?

    If YOU have had the vaccine, why should you be concerned about those who have not? Does the vaccine protect the recipient or not?

    In America, so far people have a choice! What other’s choose to do is their business. If you got the shot good for you. If not that’s up to you. No guilt trip here!

    Inquiring Minds- those of us that have HAD the shots are tired of playing the games created by those who haven’t!!! and you are right-I am NOT concerned about what happens to those who don’t get shots

    I am reading a lot of back and fourths between vaccinated and non- vaccinated people. How does any of you or anyone else know who has and who has not received the vaccine? Kind of ridiculous to argue back and fourth about it! Does it help in any way? There are some people who can not get the vaccine due to allergic reactions or medical conditions. Maybe instead of arguing about it with out knowing why the ones who have not gotten the shot did not get it, just follow your guidelines and be done with it. We are all sick of this BS and want it to be over already. Have a good day!!

    I really hope we don’t go back to a mask mandate. I realize numbers are up alittle but still. At some point life has to go on. I got my shot and did the mask thing once but I’m not doing it again. If someone doesn’t want the shot that’s their choice but I’m not making up for someone who didn’t get it. Not my problem.

    We care that you are not vaccinated because you are clogging up the healthcare system.

    I am just wondering what aspect of the upswing and potential hazards of the impending Delta virus variant people don’t understand. What does failure to get the vaccine mean for you and your community? Here are some of the potential outcomes: reduced ICU treatment options, reduced number of doctors, nurses and medical professionals to treat those who enter the hospital. (Even though medical professionals have been vaccinated, they can become mildly ill from the variant and will have to quarantine at home for a number of days). Those who are having heart problems, strokes, traumatic injuries will be affected, as well, as resources dwindle. Some people who contract the virus have been suffering from long-term effects which have not subsided for over a year. And last, but not least, how will people feel when more and more children begin to get this more serious Covid variant? It is no longer a political issue to play around with. The issue has caused a great divide in our country, one which is damaging our ability as a nation to thrive.
