Alabama’s each day COVID loss of life fee anticipated to maintain climbing by August


Almost all COVID-19 deaths in Alabama are unvaccinated. State Health Officer Scott Harris said only 26 vaccinated patients were among the over 11,000 deaths in Alabama from COVID-19. Harris gave the numbers as the state tries to increase vaccination rates as cases rise. The Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation predicts the daily COVID-19 death rate in Alabama will continue to rise, peaking at nearly sixty deaths per day in early September. Health official Scott Harris says the state’s seven-day moving average has nearly tripled in the past two weeks. Harris said health officials have identified over 6,000 people who contracted breakthrough COVID infections after being fully vaccinated, but the vaccine remains effective in preventing infections and serious illnesses.
