2022-07-15: Which of N-dosed populations (N=0,...,4) is the safest and least safe with respect to COVID - according to new PHAC data?
Three weeks ago PHAC changed the way it reports cases following vaccination. It now reports cases of people with 4 doses, but stopped reporting deaths of those with 1 dose...
PHAC COVID-19 epidemiology update
https://health-infobase.canada.ca/covid-19/ (Table 2)
Updated: June 24, July 1, July 8, 2022
Reporting periods: June 5 - June 12, 2022 and June 12 - June 19, 2022
Log of PHAC data: this Googlesheet
Charts from Googlesheet: https://sites.google.com/view/open-canada/analysis/cases-by-vaccination-july-2022
The results are shown below, followed by the YouTube video from today’s seminar, where I explain them.
The following observations are made:
The largest relative number of Cases (inc. with Deaths) is observed in 3-dose population, followed by 4-dose one
The smallest relative number of Cases is observed in 1-dose population, followed by 2-dose one.
Now you can compare these results with those reported by PHAC, quoted below. Note that PHAC reports for a slightly different and larger reporting period, but you can still make comparisons….
Between May 09, 2022 and June 05, 2022 , unvaccinated cases were 4 times more likely to be hospitalized and 4 times more likely to die from their illness, compared to fully vaccinated cases.
During the same 4-week period, unvaccinated cases were 5 times more likely to be hospitalized and 6 times more likely to die from their illness, compared to cases fully vaccinated with 1 or more additional doses
Fully vaccinated people diagnosed with COVID-19 were significantly less likely to be hospitalized or to die, particularly if they received an additional dose(s).
Where are results for 1-dose population? Can we estimate what they were?
Now PHAC no longer reports Deaths and Hospitalizations with COVID cases following vaccination for population with 1 doses.
This population however counts for 1.2 million of Canadians and who - as seen from images above and from data data reported between January and May 2022 show below - have smaller relative number of Deaths/Hospitalizations/Cases compared to those 2 and 3 doses…
