A study conducted by the Center for Infectious Diseases Control (CDC) in the United States showed that unvaccinated people are 29 times more likely to be hospitalized due to COVID-19
Compared to the immunized.
In addition, the report released last Tuesday night, 24, reported that those who have not been vaccinated are still five times more likely to contract the novel coronavirus.
The survey looked at those 16 and older, based on new cases and hospitalizations in Los Angeles County, California, from May 1 to July 25.
“Infection rate and hospitalization data indicate that licensed vaccines were protective against severe SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 infections during a period when delta-variable transmission was increasing,” the agency wrote in the study.
The CDC reports that 43,127 Los Angeles residents have been analyzed and hospitalized COVID cases are defined as hospitalizations within 14 days of infection.
In addition, hospitalization rates “significantly” increased among unvaccinated, fully vaccinated and partially vaccinated people, with the highest rates among unvaccinated people at the end of June.
The CDC noted in the study that efforts to expand vaccination, in coordination with other prevention strategies, are necessary to prevent hospitalizations and disease-related deaths.
