In context of debate about Omicron, Israel’s Coronavirus Commissioner Professor Salman Zarka suggested that compulsory vaccination needs to be considered. Separately, in the same Jerusalem Post article, it was noted that only two cases of Omicron had been confirmed, both fully vaccinated. One with AstraZeneca; the other with three (yes three) Pfizer shots.
Just watching Fox News. The first case in the United States has been reported. You guessed it, fully vaccinated. But hold on, the President of the United States says that vaccination (and masks of course) is key to fighting Omicron.
“Don’t be confused they want to prevent unvaxxed people getting very sick and occupying scarce hospital beds.”
“Really. Then is this a pandemic of the unvaxxed?”
Latest figures from the UK. Patients admitted to hospital with Covid in the four weeks from mid-October to mid-November. Total 9,174; unvaccinated 3071. A higher rate among the unvaxxed, OK; but people not rates fill up hospital beds.
“I’m still confused.”
