VACCINATED DOCTORS – More than 350 doctors and health workers who already received the COVID-19 vaccine in Indonesia got infected by coronavirus.
Many countries across the globe now are vaccinating its citizens. The healthcare workers are the top priorities as they are the ones attending to the COVID-19 cases and they are at a greater risk to contract the virus.
It has been a year now since the COVID-19 pandemic started shaking healthcare systems in the different nations. Millions of lives were lost to the disease and hospitals reached their full capacities amid the growing cases. The World Health Organization (WHO) has previously warned that the pandemic may be a long-term battle.
With regards to the COVID-19 vaccines, several countries and firms came up with it. Among these are Sinovac, Sputnik V, AstraZeneca, Moderna, and Pfizer.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, more than 350 vaccinated doctors and health workers in Indonesia contracted COVID-19. The said frontliners were reportedly vaccinated with Chinese biopharmaceutical’s Sinovac vaccine.
Kudus Health Office head Badai Ismoyo expressed that most of the vaccinated doctors and health workers who got infected by COVID-19 are showing no symptoms. They are also under self-isolation at their homes. However, dozens that are symptomatic are in hospitals now with high fever and decreasing oxygen level.
Currently, the variant of concern is the Delta variant which was first detected in India. The said COVID-19 variant has infected a lot of people in India and hospitals got filled up with patients. Some coronavirus patients even had to receive oxygen while in a vehicle as the hospitals can no longer accommodate all the patients.
Countries now are in the pursuit of achieving the herd immunity against COVID-19 through the vaccination. It may still be a while to go but the authorities are hopeful of a brighter tomorrow away from the pandemic.
