Hundreds of vaccinated people in Britain have been found infected with the dangerous delta variant. Public Health England has said in its COVID-19 update that there are indications that people who have been vaccinated are also becoming infected with the delta variant. The organization has warned that even in vaccinated people, delta variants can spread as fast as those who have not yet been vaccinated. Let us tell you that after the easing of restrictions, the delta variant is spreading rapidly in different parts of the UK.
55.1 percent of patients did not get the vaccine
Public Health England said that 55.1 percent of the 1,467 people who were hospitalized with Delta infection from July 19 to August 2 had not received the vaccine. On the other hand, 512 people or say 34.9 percent people had received both doses of the vaccine. Significantly, on July 19, the lockdown restrictions were eased in England. Vaccines from AstraZeneca, Moderna and Pfizer-BioNtech are currently being used for the vaccination of people in the UK. Both doses of these vaccines are needed to be vaccinated. So far, 75 percent of the UK adult population has received both doses of the vaccine.
Vaccination is the biggest weapon
UK Health Protection Agency chief executive Jenny Harries said hospitalization figures show how important it is that we all get both doses of the vaccine. He said that vaccination is the biggest weapon to save yourself and your loved ones from the corona pandemic. However, we also have to remember that getting the vaccine does not eliminate all the risks. Even after this, there is a risk of getting infected. On the other hand, Public Health England said that the larger the population is vaccinated, the higher the rate we will be protected.
Vaccines provide protection against delta variants
Britain’s health protection results match those from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which said last week that delta-infected variants spread more rapidly than other variants of the virus. The vaccine has been shown to provide protection against the delta variant, especially after both doses of the vaccine. But there is not much data yet about the transmission of the virus to other people of the vaccinated. The Delta variant has become the most spreading variant of the corona virus worldwide. This variant is behind 99 percent of the cases of Kovid-19 in Britain.
