  1. 2,626 virus deaths in a county with over 800,000 people? Less than a .01% per capita death rate. Unless you get the complete vaccination series meaning two it’s worthless so the 72% stat is meaningless. The bottom line is 42% have not received the vaccine or completed it. The bogus Biden goal was to have at least 70% completely vaccinated by July 4.
