For the first time since the beginning of the corona epidemic, most Americans who die from the virus were at least partially vaccinated, according to a new analysis of federal and state data. Fifty-eight percent of the deaths from the coronavirus in August were people who had been vaccinated
Most of the deaths in the US from the corona virus are people who have been at least partially vaccinated. The decreasing effectiveness of corona vaccines and infectious strains of the virus distributed to the elderly and immunocompromised people have resulted in more deaths among those who have received at least one dose of the vaccine, a Washington Post analysis reveals. Published on Wednesday.
Fifty-eight percent of the deaths from the corona virus in August were people who were at least partially vaccinated. The paper described a disturbing trend as the proportion of deaths of people who had been vaccinated had risen steadily over the past year.
In September 2021, vaccinated people accounted for only 23 percent of deaths from the coronavirus. In January and February this year, it reached up to 42 percent. “We can no longer say that this is an epidemic of the unvaccinated,” said Cynthia Cox, vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation, who conducted the analysis on behalf of the newspaper.
Top health officials have repeatedly urged Americans to complete their primary vaccination series and get a booster to maximize the protection of the coronavirus vaccines.
Last October, the New York State Supreme Court ordered the reinstatement of all workers fired because of New York City’s vaccination law, and compensation, after finding that “vaccination does not prevent a person from contracting or transmitting the virus.”
