New data on Corona in intensive care units: This is how high the proportion of people who have not been vaccinated is

Thousands of people are in intensive care with Covid-19. An investigation has now analyzed how many of them are unvaccinated. It is also worth taking a look at the vaccination rate.

Munich – In the pandemic *, people are more and more divided into two groups – whether consciously or unconsciously. Here the vaccinated, there the unvaccinated. It then makes no difference whether the latter refuse the spades because of real concerns or simply out of spite. At many doors the magic formula is 2G, access to restaurants * or retail stores is only permitted with a vaccination certificate or proof of health.

In contrast, the majority of the unvaccinated are in the intensive care units of the clinics. This is the result of a study carried out by the Robert Koch Institute * (RKI) and the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (DIVI). The organizations have now jointly published the figures.

Covid patients in intensive care units: Almost two thirds are not vaccinated

According to this, 62 percent of the corona patients newly landing in intensive care units are not vaccinated. The vaccination status is known for almost 9000 intensive care patients. Only 28 percent of them received full immunization or even a booster vaccination. In addition, there are ten percent of the cases in which there is incomplete immune protection, which translates as: You have recovered without vaccination or have only been partially immunized.

The data was collected between December 14, 2021 and January 12, 2022, so it is very fresh. However, the RKI and DIVI emphasize that these figures alone are not sufficient to assess the effectiveness of the vaccination. In order to make this transfer, the figures would have to be related, for example, to the development of the general vaccination rate.

So far, 72.3 percent of the population are considered fully immunized. 45.1 percent have already received their booster vaccination.

Omikron wave rolls in: Lauterbach refers to 55 million additional vaccination doses

Health Minister Karl Lauterbach recently campaigned aggressively * for the spades against Covid-19. “I appeal to their common sense, I appeal to their solidarity,” emphasized the SPD politician in the Bundestag in the direction of the hesitant: “Many of us make great sacrifices to protect them. Please take the opportunity at least for the first vaccination. “

In view of the omicron mutation, the unvaccinated and the elderly are particularly at risk. The Ministry of Health bought 55 million additional doses of the vaccine: “The vaccine is available for anyone who wants a booster vaccination *.” The goal now is “to make a steep hill out of the wall of the omicron wave, or at least the height to limit the wall ”. So that the intensive care units are not flooded again. (mg) * Merkur.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
