20% of all new cases in the U.S. are in Florida – shameful.

Of the 445 Nassau residents who were newly diagnosed with CoViD-19 between July 9 and July 16, exactly how many were vaccinated and how many were not? How many were tested and found to have the Delta variant? Other variants? I believe that reporting this information could be very instructive to the general public on the value of getting vaccinated if one is able to do so.

Specific information is difficult to come by. We had a bit of insight into what was happening when someone at NCEM left a Facebook message that of those hospitalized 97% were not vaccinated. Full disclosure to keep citizens informed would be helpful.
