GT Bynum, Mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is helping to increase hospitalization with COVID-19. In regional hospitals, the number of patients has increased by 10% since June. Health experts are blaming new and more contagious delta variants for the increase in cases.
In January, 27% of all people admitted to Tulsa were infected with the virus. In June, it dropped to just 1%. Over the past two weeks, hospitalizations have reached 10.2% of COVID-19 patients. Hospital managers tell 2 News Oklahoma that almost all of them have not been vaccinated.
Mayor GT Bynum issued a statement Wednesday urging people to vaccinate.
“Don’t believe my words. I’m completely vaccinated and I’m enjoying my freedom knowing that it has boosted my immunity. I have a doctor I can trust in your health, If you know your health background, no one is in the best position to advise you. “
If you wish to be vaccinated, most pharmacies are currently vaccinated. You can also visit 918vaccinate.com to see where you can get your shots.
