Of the more than 5,000 new cases, 44 percent was reported in people ages 18 to 39. A quarter of the total new cases was found in people ages 18 to 29.  Louisiana’s health department said last week that 97 percent of the state’s COVID cases and hospitalizations reported since February 2021 have been in people who were not fully vaccinated. Specific data related to Wednesday’s new cases was not immediately available. 

99% of the cases reported to the state today were community spread. State officials said the count Wednesday is the third highest single-day spike since the start of the pandemic last year. 

Hospitals are also reporting a sustained surge in new patients this month. At the start of July, 259 patients were hospitalized with COVID statewide. That number is up to 844 as of Wednesday, July 21.
