14% of US residents say they definitely will not get vaccinated, but it gets worse. Figures for Europe range around 25%, but vary country to country. In Ireland, vaccine refusal is just 10%, in Bulgaria it's 67%. France, a country where people consume medicine like coffee, the rate was around 40%, until government pressure forced people to reconsider, along with dramatically increasing infection rates. The people who refuse the vaccine have the right to do so. They are a broad spectrum of society, the only vague connection may be that they follow (fake) stories on social media. Whatever the reasoning or whatever negative things these people believe, the sad fact is, it will kill us all! Please re-think if you are a vaccine refuser. Sacrifice your personal misgivings and save humanity. It hasn't touched you yet? It will, on Martinique, a part of France with only a 17% vaccine up take, the hospitals are full, it's an extreme emergency, the whole island is in lockdown and tourists have been evacuated. Perhaps you only get your local or national news, but this is worldwide, and God help us, it will surely come to you if you refuse to be vaccinated. It is life or death, it's that simple, whatever your personal feelings, we only have one defence, the vaccine. The longer you wait the worse it will be, until we are all wiped out!
We (the world) rely on the Covid-19 map from John Hopkins University. It is current and reliable. The hospitals give their data to the CDC, the CDC publishes the data set and with it (plus data from all over the world) John Hopkins produces their map. Until 7/16/20 when the Trump administration decreed that hospitals should send their data to 'Health & Human Services,' run by Alex Azar, at The White House. From there the data is distributed to the CDC, John Hopkins, and all. On the 7/16/20 the infection rate in Republican states started to flatten out.
