US doctor: COVID-19 is becoming a “pandemic of the unvaccinated”




The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States, Rochelle Walensky, warned of an increase in cases of the disease, saying that COVID-19 “is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated” and that vaccinated people are protected from the severe course of the disease. This is reported by The Hill.





“This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated. We are seeing outbreaks of diseases in those parts of the country that have low vaccination coverage because unvaccinated people are at risk,” she said.

According to Walensky, about 26,000 cases a day are registered on average in the United States, which is almost 70% more than in the last seven days. The number of hospitalizations is also about 2,790 per day, which is 36% more than in the previous week, and the number of deaths increased by 26%.

Almost all hospitalizations and deaths occur among unvaccinated people, the doctor claims. According to her, 97% of people who get to the hospital with coronavirus are not vaccinated.

“The good news is that if you are fully vaccinated, you are protected from the severe course of COVID-19, hospitalization, and death, and even protected from known variants, including the delta variant, common in this country,” she stressed.
