and for the unvaccinated, it isn't any less dangerous.

that is incorrect_____________it is less dangerous for both the vaccinated and unvaccinated_______________because there are a great many fewer deaths both in the numerical total and in the % of those who get infected that die


as shown in my above post

Vaccinated people seem to think things are open so they drop their safeguards and suddenly there's a spike in cases.

I'd have to see hospital data about percentage of people who are unvaccinated in the ICU vs. vaccinated in the ICU. I would expect 20 to 1 unvaccinated to vaccinated still in the ICU.
Are health insurance plans barring payments for unvaccinated people for COVID complications since last fall? Maybe those people don't even go to the hospital anymore.

Hospitalization rates, NYC:

Unvaxxed: 66.6/100,000
Vaxxed: 2.9/100,000
Vax + Booster: 1.8/100,000
0-4 years old: 1.3/100,000

NEW: Update from @nycHealthy on NYC's BA.2 wave.
Shows hospitalizations remain low but starting to rise—for the unvax'd. They're now *37.8* times more likely to be hospitalized than vax'd NYers.
One thing remains true through all the ups & downs of this pandemic: VACCINES WORK.

Minimizers focus only on the denominator, ignoring the numerator.
Over 100,000 kids have been hospitalized.
Some won’t share that fact.

Looks like new cases per day are expected to double each week.

____________


for the first time in many weeks (I follow it every day) according to the NYT the 14 day average of new deaths is up (by 1%) although it is still way, way down when compared to January of 2021 - it had been going way down until recently

the 14 day average for hospitalizations is way up, and the average for new cases is way, way up

the Administration is warning of a Fall surge in infections and believe it or not quoted the number of potential new infections as being__________100 million

I don't understand this. I see it often. A misbelief that if something has been somewhat beaten and no longer a threat then it must never have been a threat

I lost a few friends and family to Covid including my Advantage Play partner. Covid is very real to those who suffered from it.

These types of pandemic situations do go away over time. Does anyone feel Spanish Flu was never a serious threat because today no one catches it? Bubonic plague?

It's sad some people felt this was some type of political checkmate move but if that were the case, the whole pandemic would have disappeared on November 8th after the election. It didn't go away immediately did it? (Oh, right, it never existed in the first place, SMH).

There's about 650 new cases a day in Erie County, NY (Buffalo area), and also Nassau County, NY and it's higher or lower in surrounding NYC counties.
