To obtain this information, “public health officials use community transmission rates as a key indicator to develop risk-based guidelines. These numbers track new cases per 100,000 population, which, according to officials from the APH, was more accurate than hospitalization figures for assessing risk during the delta variant outbreak.” For more detailed information, including chart and video, please visit: (KVUE.com)
