Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D) on Sunday predicted that his state will be able to avoid another surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations, pointing to the high rate of vaccination that has been achieved so far.

Appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation" Lamont said the omicron case that was detected in Connecticut is mild and that the infected individual does not require hospitalization. Host Margaret Brennan asked Lamont how concerned he was about a wider infection in his state.

"I'm concerned. Look, omicron is coming up from New York on the I-95 corridor, but delta's coming down from New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, And no state is an island and no country is our island," said Lamont.

"So good news is we have 95 percent of our folks over the age of 12 have had some vaccines. So I think we are prepared and I'd like to think that we're not going to have the surge in hospitals you see in some less vaccinated states," he added.
