Majority of Americans dying of Covid were vaccinated: Washington Post

Deaths of vaccinated persons in last September were 23%, 42% in February and 58% in August

The majority of Americans who had died due to Covid-19 were at least partially vaccinated, Washington Post has reported in the analysis of federal and state data.

The decreasing efficacy of vaccines and increased contagious strains of Covid has been told to be the reason for increased deaths. According to the report, 58 percent of the deaths in August due to the virus were the people who had been vaccinated at least partially.

The report has further stated that there was a steady rise in the death of vaccinated people. Covid deaths in September 2021 were 23 percent which rose to 42 percent in February this year.

Kaiser Family Foundation Vice President Cynthia Cox has said, “We can no longer say this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.” Cox has done the analysis on behalf of the Washington Post.

US citizens have been urged by health professionals to complete their vaccination for stronger protection against the virus.

White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha has announced a six-week sprint of a campaign of the Biden administration for vaccination of all US citizens during the winter. Jha said that the Covid vaccine was just like the flu vaccine, once-a-year shot.

Ex-White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has also said to Americans that they should get fully vaccinated. Fauci also said that the efficacy of vaccines decreased over time and because of emerging stronger variants Covid was not like other vaccine-treatable illnesses.
