More vaxxed people getting hospitalized
New data show 50-50 share of vaccinated, unvaccinated patients admitted to Guam hospitals
While health authorities have been drumming up vaccination and claiming it provides protection against the coronavirus, a surge in hospitalizations on Guam tends to prove otherwise.
Recent numbers in the past week showed more vaccinated people are getting admitted into the hospitals.
The number of hospital admissions on Guam continued to surge Monday, showing an equal percentage of vaccinated and unvaccinated patients.
The Guam Memorial Hospital and Guam Regional Medical City reported 57 admissions as of 5 p.m. Of this number 28 are unvaccinated, 28 are vaccinated and one is ineligible for vaccination.
Health officials claim that the vaccine may not guarantee immunity from Covid-19 infections, but it controls the severity of the illness.
Today, the Department of Public Health and Social Services reported a preliminary case count of one new case of Covid-19 from 36 specimens analyzed on Sept. 5.
Additional results are pending analysis and submission from other clinics and will be reported on Tuesday, Sept. 7.
Free Covid-19 community testing is not available on government or observed holidays. There was no free Covid-19 community testing on Sunday and Monday as the island celebrated the Labor Day holiday.
To date, there have been a total of 11,293 officially reported cases of COVID-19 with 151 deaths, 2,016 cases in active isolation, and 9,126 not in active isolation. As of September 3, the CAR Score is 46.8.
