Most In U.S. Are Still In Danger Of Contracting COVID-19
 Nearly 13 million Americans have contracted COVID-19, and nearly 300,000 have died. Some might think we are nearing the end of the pandemic. But that would not be true. The pandemic is worse than ever, and as the map above shows, most Americans are still vulnerable to the virus. On the map, the darker the color, the bigger the percentage of people in that state that have antibodies that would prevent them from getting sick. Even in the best case states, the percentage is only 17%, and in most states, it is much lower. That means from 83% to 99% of the population in the states can still get sick if exposed. We are a long way from "herd Immunity".
