Delta variant likely dominant in Arizona with increasing cases of COVID |  local news

The number of ICU beds used by COVID-19 patients in Arizona on Tuesday was up by 50%, to 223, from a week prior, according to data from the Arizona Department of Health Services. This number is still low compared to the 1,183 ICU beds used by COVID-19 patients at the week of the winter surge. “Because a lot of the population has been vaccinated, there’s less likelihood of overwhelming the medical system, as we saw in the earlier waves. So right now there’s plenty of availability for beds and hospitals and so on and so forth. So that is less of a concern.”

About 44.6% of the population in Arizona has been fully vaccinated, according to CDC data, as of Wednesday. “The important take-home message is that the vaccines do work against this delta variant,” LaBaer said.

“We’re seeing an uptick in hospitalization. We’re seeing an uptick in ICU. Eventually that will translate into death,” said LaBaer.  And more than 99% of people who have died from COVID-19 were unvaccinated.
