The article should read, "Wellstar Health System STATE WIDE..."

The way it is written, people think that's just in Cobb.

Also, why note how many "unvaccinated?" Why? Is the propaganda necessary? How about explaining at the same time, why the unvaccinated are any kind of THREAT to the vaccinated? Because when these people recover and go home, they will have lifetime immunity to covid and will never have to worry about side effects from the vaccine, which are currently HURTING many people. Let's have this entire discussion, rather than simply mimicking the medical tyranny of unelected bureacrats who have likely never TREATED a patient who has covid and who have in fact funded gain of function research and are completely corrupted by the system.

How many of the vaccinated/unvaccinated are obese and likely have diabetes and heart issues? No one wants to talk about them. Those are the folks who get very sick and sometimes die from Covid. Has anyone seen those statistics? I bet Wellstar has them.
