Chief Scientific Adviser Says 60% Admitted Hospital Patients Unvaccinated Vs COVID-19
CORONAVIRUS VACCINATION – According to Britain’s top scientific adviser, over 60% of admitted hospital patients are unvaccinated against COVID-19.
As such, the importance of vaccination was yet again emphasized in the United Kingdom. Based on an article from Inquirer, Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance said 60% of patients admitted to London hospitals are unvaccinated.
This statement comes following a blunder made by Prime Minister Boris Johnson who stated that 60% of people hospitalized had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. As per the article, Vallance stated:
Correcting a statistic I gave at the press conference,” Vallance said on Twitter. “About 60% of hospitalizations from COVID are not from double vaccinated people, rather 60% of hospitalizations from COVID are currently from unvaccinated people
Previously, the UK struggled to contain the spread of COVID-19 in their country. Because of the virus, the economy was shut down and travel was heavily restricted. However, because of mass vaccination, over 70% of the population had already received one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Meanwhile, more than 50% of the population had finished two doses. With this, England has lifted most of its COVID-19 restrictions including banning of nightclubs and pubs.
This is a massive leap forward from the once abysmal economic state the U.K. went through during the early days of the pandemic. Along with this, the U.K. had also lifted the limit on the number of people allowed in indoor activities.
