 Alaska Leads Nation In Covid Rate Per Person
Almost 1,800 New Cases Reported In Single Day 

Up The Creek Without A Canoe 

Hospitals Slammed With Covid Patients 

The Copper River Native Association, in conjunction with Cross Road Medical Center and Mt. Sanford Tribal Consortium, reported 22 new cases of Covid-19 in the region for the week ending September 24th, 2021. CRNA counted 60 new cases total in the last 14 days. 

Meanwhile, the state of Alaska reported 1,793 new Covid-19 cases in the state on Friday, September 24th.  This was the largest number ever. Though some of those cases were carried over from a prior not-yet-counted time, the jump in cases has been phenomenal. 

By contrast, on August 5th, the total number of new coronavirus cases in the state was counted at 338. 

It's now over 5 times worse, as cases ramp up. 

Alaska has the highest rate of new Covid infections, per capita, in the entire United States. 

Providence Hospital said this week that they are now rationing services. Alaska is regularly showcased in national news as a sign of how bad it can get when a state goes out of control. 

For the Copper Valley, the situation is not good. There are no hospitals in the Copper Valley to take you in – whether you have Covid or if you have a heart attack. And the safety network that was taken for granted, where you were offered haven in Anchorage, is seriously compromised.
