Massachusetts Covid-19: 7,000 New Cases and 43 Vaccinated Americans Found Dead!
According to health officials, nearly 7,000 new cases of breakthrough influenza emerged in Massachusetts over the past week, and 43 people died.
6,917 new cases related to Covid-19 infections in vaccinated people were reported last week, with an additional 205 vaccinated people being hospitalized, according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
According to the new report, there have been 71,037 cases of breakthrough infections, and 552 people have died from breakthrough infections.
Both figures represent a tiny proportion of all people who have received vaccinations, moreover, in the Bay State there are more than 4.8 million residents who are fully immunized.
Approximately 0.05% of vaccine recipients have been hospitalized, and 1.5% have had an infection confirmed. Only 0.1% have died.
Additionally, the report from the health officials fails to indicate how many patients with underlying conditions are among the breakthrough cases, although it acknowledges that these cases “may be undercounted due to discrepancies” in records.
COVID-19 is infectious in vaccinated people, but its effects are severely blunted, and patients rarely get hospitalized or die from it.
