  • SC is in the middle of a three week increase in Covid-19 infections
  • Last week Covid-19 cases were up 58%
  • SC surpassed 600,000 cases
  • Hospitalizations are increasing with a 39.4 % increase in the past 3 weeks.
  • The majority of hospitalizations are from unvaccinated individuals
  • Vaccines are the best way to prevent infection
  • Summer camps are having outbreaks as young people are not vaccinated at high enough rates
  • 12 documented cases of the Delta variant in the state but this number does not reflect the true total as not all cases are tested for type
  • DHEC encourages vaccinated individuals to share their experiences with unvaccinated people they know
