82 percent of Covid intensive care patients fully vaccinated
A total of more than two million cases of vaccine failure.
At the end of April, the Robert Koch Institute announced that it would only publish current figures on vaccination effectiveness in a monthly report. These figures would have been due at the end of May. But they didn't come. Among other things, on the grounds that vaccinations were incorrectly counted. The " Monitoring of the COVID-19 vaccination process in Germany " was finally published on Thursday. The current weekly report by the federal authorities, which was published at the same time, contains astonishing figures. I quote verbatim the passage that impressed me the most
The vaccination status of 1,951 COVID-19 admissions was reported for the period from June 8th, 2022 to July 3rd, 2022 (middle of week 23 – week 26/2022); this corresponds to approximately 67.1% of the cases reported for this period (2,908). 14.4% (280 cases) of all COVID-19 admissions with known vaccination status had no vaccination, 3.7% (72 cases) had one vaccination, 12.5% (243 cases) had two vaccinations, 56.4% ( 1,101 cases) had three vaccinations and 13.1% (255 cases) had four or more vaccinations.
Before you have to look for the calculator, I did the math for you: 82 percent of all patients who came to the intensive care units in calendar weeks 23 to 26 with Covid-19 (we don’t know with or because of it) and whose vaccination status is known, have been vaccinated at least twice, 69.5 percent, i.e. more than two-thirds, have even been boosted. The rate of fully vaccinated people in Germany is 76.1 percent. The RKI's percentage figures are over 100 - if you add them up, you get 100.1 percent. Apparently due to curves.
I deliberately do not allow myself to comment here. I think these numbers speak for themselves.
And for the sake of balance, I also cite how the Robert Koch Institute itself comments on these numbers – in bold letters:
It should be noted that the intensive care register data in this form are not suitable for assessing the effectiveness of the vaccination. The general age distribution of intensive care patients and the development of the general vaccination rate in the population must be taken into account. See the "Monitoring of the COVID-19 vaccination process in Germany" at www.rki.de/covid-19-impfbericht.
In the "monitoring of the COVID-19 vaccination process in Germany" it says at the same time:
In the period MW 16-19/2022, the risk of being treated in hospital for COVID-19 for unvaccinated persons was 6.7-fold (12-17 year olds), 3.7-fold (18-59 -year-olds) or 9.0-fold (from 60-year-olds) increased compared to people with a booster vaccination.
Please don't ask me how that fits in with the numbers from the weekly report quoted above.
Also interesting is the number of so-called "vaccination breakthroughs", as cases of vaccination failure are called today. Here again the verbatim quotes from the monitoring of the RKI:
"In the entire period from MW 05/2021 - 23/2022, the vaccination status was known from the information provided for 86% of the symptomatic COVID-19 cases. During this period, a total of 2,062,073 vaccine breakthroughs were identified among reported symptomatic cases with known vaccination status: 26,943 in 5-11 year olds with primary vaccination and 2,439 with booster vaccination, 75,954 in 12-17 year olds with primary vaccination and 28,313 with booster vaccination , 844,116 in 18- to 59-year-olds with primary vaccination or 734,948 with booster vaccination and 180,359 in persons aged 60 and over with primary vaccination or 169,001 with booster vaccination.
Also interesting: The monitoring no longer speaks of protection from booster vaccinations against infection or illness. Only from protection against severe courses.
The following statement is also noteworthy:
Negative values can occur when calculating vaccination effectiveness. However, a negative point estimate does not mean that vaccination increases the risk of COVID-19 illness or hospitalization, but rather must be interpreted as an expression of statistical uncertainty or a bias in the data.
The following admission by the authority is interesting:
Current note on the data basis: In connection with the conversion of the vaccination status recording in the reporting and transmission software (more detailed information can now be entered for each individual COVID-19 vaccination), COVID-19 recorded with certain external software products has occurred since February 2022 - Cases of a conspicuous accumulation of implausible vaccination information such as an excessive number of vaccinations. In this context, it cannot be ruled out that, until this technical problem is resolved, some of the transmitted COVID-19 cases will be incorrectly assessed as fully vaccinated and the calculated vaccination effectiveness will therefore be underestimated.
The report goes on to say:
For the reasons mentioned above, the values listed in this chapter must be interpreted with caution and are primarily used to classify vaccination breakthroughs and provide an initial estimate of vaccination effectiveness.
Against this background, it is interesting that the highest courts have come to a firm opinion on the effectiveness of vaccination and use this to justify compulsory vaccination, while even the RKI now warns that the current values must be interpreted with caution. Were the courts too hasty? Will they now revise their decisions?
Furthermore, the RKI states that after injecting mRNA vaccines, the effectiveness "after more than 6 months is only a maximum of 13 percent". The booster vaccination, according to the RKI, then protects “up to 3 months after vaccination with an effectiveness between 44 percent and 65 percent against a symptomatic infection by the omicron variant.” The wording “up to three months” is very soft – that would be it protection of one week is still recorded. It goes on to say, "Data at later dates were not reported for the booster." That begs the big question: Does that logic mean then, does it need to be boosted every few months?
Because less is sometimes more, I refrain from any comment. The dates and quotes speak for themselves. Just as it speaks for itself when you enter the essential information, such as vaccination failure or the proportion of vaccinated among the Covid 19 patients in the intensive care unit, on Google and then look up how many major media outlets have reported on it.
