The vast majority of new cases are in people who are not vaccinated, prompting public health experts to again push for more of that group to get their shots. Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, said Sunday that more “pain and suffering” is ahead as long as cases keep climbing.

Fauci said he doesn’t foresee additional lockdowns in the U.S. because he believes enough people are vaccinated to avoid a recurrence of last winter, the Associated Press reported. At the same time, he said, not enough are inoculated to “crush the outbreak” at this point.

“So we’re looking, not, I believe, to lock down, but we’re looking to some pain and suffering in the future because we’re seeing the cases go up, which is the reason why we keep saying over and over again, the solution to this is get vaccinated, and this would not be happening,” Fauci said on ABC’s “This Week.” { height:0; position:relative; padding-bottom:56.25%; } > iframe { position: absolute; left: 0; top: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } Fauci’s warning comes just days after the CDC reversed its policy on face masks by saying even vaccinated people should wear them in public settings in areas with high rates of transmission. On Friday, it released the research that backed up that recommendation, based on a recent investigation of a coronavirus outbreak in Barnstable County in Massachusetts involving 469 cases of COVID-19. Of that number, 346, or 74%, occurred in fully vaccinated individuals, while testing identified the delta variant was dominant. While a handful of those individuals were hospitalized, none of them died.

Things are so bad in the Sunshine State that it now has the highest level of hospitalized patients since the start of the pandemic, with 10,207 people in hospitals with confirmed COVID cases on Friday. The previous record was 10,170, recorded on July 23, 2020, the AP reported.

Florida is now leading the nation in per capita hospitalizations for COVID-19, as hospitals around the state report having to put emergency-room patients in beds in hallways and others document a noticeable drop in the age of patients. Florida has averaged 1,525 adult hospitalizations a day, and 35 daily pediatric hospitalizations in the last week.

Mary Mayhew, CEO of the Florida Hospital Association, told MSNBC that more than half of recent hospitalizations in the state are of people between 25 and 55 years old. At one hospital in Jacksonville, Fla., she said the average age of COVID in-patients is now 42.

Ron DeSantis has resisted mask mandates and vaccine requirements and along with the state legislature has limited local officials’ ability to impose restrictions meant to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The CDC’s vaccine tracker, meanwhile, is showing that 164.8 million Americans are fully vaccinated, equal to 49.6% of the population. That means they have had two shots of the vaccines developed by Pfizer PFE, +2.69% with German partner BioNTech BNTX, +3.61% or Moderna MRNA, -1.98%, or one shot of Johnson & Johnson’s JNJ, +0.04% one-dose regimen. The AstraZeneca AZN, +0.24% AZN, +0.07% vaccine, widely used the U.K. and other countries, has not been authorized for use in the U.S.

Among adults 18 and over, 60.5% are vaccinated, according to the tracker. The White House said early afternoon that one key milestone had been reached, that of getting 70% of the adult population have at least one dose. Biden was originally aiming to meet that goal by the July 4 holiday.
