The latest Public Health England technical briefing on Covid-19 variants of concern has been published and it reveals that up to the 2nd August 2021, 65% of all alleged Covid-19 deaths since February 2021 have been people who were vaccinated against the disease.
The report, which is the 20th update to be released, also shows that the risk of hospitalisation and death is astronomically higher if you have been fully vaccinated and catch the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
According to the PHE report, 300,010 cases of the delta Covid-19 variant have been confirmed since the 1st February 2021.
Of these roughly 50% were people who had not been vaccinated against Covid-19, with a total of 151,054 cases being recorded in the past 7 months.
Roughly 8% were people who’d had one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine less than 21 days prior to testing positive, with a total of 24,018 cases being recorded.
Roughly 15% were people who’d had one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine more than 21 days prior to testing positive, with a total of 46,089 cases being recorded.
And roughly 15% were people who were fully vaccinated prior to testing positive, with a total of 47,008 cases.
In all people who’d had at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine account for 39% of all confirmed cases of the Delta Covid-19 variant since February 1st 2021 up to 2nd August 2021.
However, the Covid-19 vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission. This was recently confirmed in a document published by the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), in which they said research should now concentrate on producing a vaccine that prevents transmission and infection due to the current vaccines not preventing infection in most people.
