Covid continues to be on the rise in the Copper River Valley. There were 22 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the Copper River Valley as of August 27th, 2021. This report comes from the Copper River Native Association, in coordination with Mount Sanford Tribal Consortium & Cross Road Medical Center.



In the past two weeks, a total of 35 local people have gotten sick with the virus in the Copper Valley, says CRNA. 

Covid has been killing people all over the world for over a year and a half.

Covid-19 has been increasing all over America, all over Alaska, and all over the Copper River Valley in the past month, primarily due to the deadly Delta variant. 

This new form of Covid is especially bad;  just one person who is sick with the Delta variant can make up to 8 others sick, too. Right now, almost anybody who has Covid has the Delta variant. 

Worse, Alaska is running out of ways to take care of those who come down with the disease, which is increasingly hitting younger people, children, and, especially, people who have chosen not to get vaccinated. (See story in the Journal) 

The hospitals in the state are running out of room for both Covid patients and for people who are sick or wounded from other reasons. This means injured, sick, and endangered people will have to fend for themselves. 

Only around 30% of Copper Valley people are vaccinated. Over 10% of all people in Copper River Country have already come down with Covid-19 in the time since the pandemic began in early 2020. 

There are no hospitals in the Copper River Valley.
