Most Covid deaths in Sweden and the United Kingdom in September involved “fully vaccinated” individuals
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – “Fully vaccinated” individuals accounted for most of the deaths in connection with Covid-19 in Sweden and the United Kingdom last month, state data show. At the same time, other Western countries saw an increase in cases and deaths.
According to the Swedish reference newspaper Swedish daily newspaper, The Swedish Public Health Agency reported 70% of Covid 19 deaths among the “fully vaccinated” between 1 September and 24 September. Sweden recorded about 130 fatal Covid cases during that period.
– It is still mainly older, but vaccination experts continue to see a trend towards reduced vaccination coverage in Sweden, Svenska Dagbladet reports.
Researcher Farshid Jalalvand told the newspaper that “it has been a long time since the elderly were vaccinated, the vaccination frequency has increased, restrictions have eased and the delta variant has taken over.
In Sweden, however, deaths dropped dramatically after health officials eased restrictions in early June, and virtually no Covid deaths were reported in the Scandinavian country in July and August. Losses began to increase again in mid-September. At that time, almost 75% of Swedes 16 years and older were “fully vaccinated”.
Despite Sweden’s mass vaccination campaign, the recent increase in infections has resulted in the highest number of covid-19 cases among Swedish nursing homes since February.
The new test protocol that Swedish authorities published last week may mean that so-called “breakthrough cases” (when a Covid positive occurs in a vaccinated person) will no longer play a role in future data reporting anyway.
The health authority announced that “fully vaccinated” people with coronavirus symptoms will be excluded from testing after the authority found increased Covid deaths after vaccination.
UNITED KINGDOM – 70% OF COVID DEATHS ARE COMPLETELY VACCINATED.
Recently released data from UK health authorities indicates a similar trend in the UK.
A UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) Report released on October 7 found that most Covid-19 deaths in the UK in September were among the “fully vaccinated”, as were most hospitalizations.
The vaccination frequency in the UK is almost as high as in Sweden.
Between September 6 and October 3, 70 percent of covid-positive deaths occurred among fully vaccinated individuals, according to UKHSA data, with 2,281 deaths among the “fully vaccinated” and only 611 among the unvaccinated within 28 days of a positive test. Partially vaccinated individuals accounted for 98 deaths.
Covid deaths among “fully vaccinated” Britons have increased dramatically since August, Expose noted. Last month, Public Health England reported 600 coronavirus deaths in the unvaccinated population between 9 August and 5 September and 1,659 in the double-vaccinated population.
The latest UKSHA figures also show that vaccinated patients dominate Covid 19 hospital admissions. Between September 6 and October 3, 3,910 “fully vaccinated” people were hospitalized “for Covid,” compared with approximately 2,400 unvaccinated patients.
The fully or partially vaccinated together accounted for approximately 64% of all covid-related hospital admissions.
The increase in Covid-19 deaths in the UK reflects trends in other countries with high vaccination coverage, including the US.
A Ministry of Defense in September presentation found that approximately 60% of elderly Medicare patients who were hospitalized for Covid prior to August 7 were “fully vaccinated.” Vermont, the state with the most vaccinations in the United States, reported that fully vaccinated individuals accounted for 76% of coronavirus deaths in September.
In Maryland, where more than 85% of adults have received at least one dose of the Covid vaccine, about one-third of recent virus-related deaths involved “fully vaccinated” individuals.
“In the last six and eight weeks, more than 40% of the people who died in Maryland were fully vaccinated,” former CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield, a top adviser to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, said in an interview with Fox News this week.
According to public information released last week, other countries battling fatal Covid 19 breakthroughs include Australia, where 36 of the 49 residents of nursing homes who died of the virus during the Delta variant outbreak in New South Wales also received the double dose.
