15 million new coronavirus cases reported globally last week among more-vaccinated countries—unvaccinated Africa only region reporting a drop, says W.H.O.
- The World Health Organization’s (WHO) latest report shows a 55% increase (roughly 15 million) in new coronavirus cases globally last week, with only less-vaccinated Africa seeing a drop, according to Newsweek.
- North, South, and Central America as well as Europe and Southeast Asia are reporting highest-ever numbers of coronavirus cases this week.
- But Southeast Asia saw the sharpest rise in infections, cases increasing by more than 400%, and the most significant numbers being reported in India, Timor-Leste, Thailand, and Bangladesh.
- Google’s “Map of vaccinations” shows these more infected regions also have higher vaccination rates than Africa, which is experiencing low coronavirus cases.
- Officials in Africa reported an 11% decrease in the region, Newsweek citing experts who say that the wave in the region has ended.
- South Africa, for example, has only “vaccinated about 24.3% of the country’s population,” according to Reuters.
- World regions with higher vaccination rates also having higher coronavirus infection rates, while regions with lower vaccination rates also have lower coronavirus infection rates, raises questions about the vaccine’s efficacy.
- India reported 442,137 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday alone, according to Google data, even though the region has more than doubled its vaccination rate since August.
- Despite the country’s high vaccination rate, the U.S. recently broke a new record among Covid-19 hospitalizations.
- While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims that “all FDA-approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines provide substantial protection against COVID-19 hospitalization,” and even with three-quarters of its total population vaccinated per CDC recommendation, the U.S. reported more than 145,000 Covid-19 hospitalizations as of Tuesday, The Washington Post reports.
- The high vaccination rate among the American population not being able to curb Covid-19 hospitalizations also raises questions about the vaccine’s efficacy, while casting doubt on CDC guidance.
- New South Wales (NSW) is seeing more fully vaccinated patients hospitalized with Covid-19 compared to the number of unvaccinated patients, as Data published by the NSW government’s coronavirus Critical Intelligence Unit revealed that as of Jan 9, 68.9% of Covid-19 patients aged 12 and over in hospitals had two doses of the vaccine, with 28.8% unvaccinated.
