Previous reports to the contrary now debunked as more anti-vaxx fakery and hoaxes
Haaretz: Unvaccinated adults now account for the majority of severe COVID-19 cases and fatalities in Israel, with over six of every 10 new severe cases recorded on Tuesday linked to this group.
According to Health Ministry data, 63 percent of 57 new serious cases on Tuesday were completely unvaccinated, while 12 had received two shots and nine had gotten a booster. Overall, there are 644 patients in serious condition, of whom 472 (73 percent) were unvaccinated; 123 patients had received two shots, while 49 had received a booster.
The most prominent common denominator among seriously ill patients currently filling up Israel’s coronavirus wards and intensive care units is that they are not vaccinated against COVID.
Most of them are drawn from among the roughly 240,000 unvaccinated Israelis between the ages of 40 and 60. A smaller portion of seriously ill patients come from the 400,000 unvaccinated people aged between 20 and 40.
Forty-seven coronavirus patients are currently on ECMO machines, which replace the function of the heart and lungs and are used in the most serious cases where lives are in danger.
No one with all three doses of the vaccine is currently on an ECMO machine. Of the patients on ECMO machines, 43 (91 percent) are unvaccinated, while only two have received the first two shots. Read more..
