HI @tigerwillow1It has been all over the media how the vaccine is 100% effective at preventing death from covid. For example:
Take whatever COVID vaccine you can get. All of them stop death and hospitalization.
" Not a single vaccinated person has died of COVID-19. ", vs:
"While there are many mild cases of COVID-19, about a fifth of infections result in severe disease, and nearly 1% of infected people die."
On the other hand, there's now this info out of Oregon:
The Oregon Health Authority said Thursday it has identified 168 COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases — when vaccinated individuals test positive for the virus — through April 2, including three deaths.
Once again, the actual information isn't what the media tells us, yet you're a science denier to not believe it. And to boot, the death rate of the breakthrough cases is 1.7%, higher than the stated death rate for non-vaccinated people.
From the stats, the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA vaccines have been basically 100% effective(*) in preventing deaths from SARS-CoV-2 original spike variant.
( Moderna and Pfizer stats were 94% effective in preventing COVID-19 for those vaccinated vs the original spike variant .. )
The challenge is coming now from numerous variants which have mutated the spike protein - the anti-body response of those vaccinated is not as effective vs these newer variants of the spike protein.
So, we still need to do some of the usual precautions - especially for those elderly. ( example keep the vitamin D levels up, .. )
Yes, Covid-19 has changed the world.. and each year we will probably have a new vaccine booster shot for Corona...
(*) - stating 100% - probably closer to 99.99% .. )
