Say It Ain’t So Joe! Why did the CDC stop the count? This from John Hopkins. Close to 190,000 in U.S. Died from Coronavirus in Joe Biden’s First Four Months in Office. Now we know why the CDC changed the count. And Scientists are upset. So Joe and the fauch added almost 190,000 COVID-19 deaths under their watch. And that’s with the vaccine.
At the end of April, 9,245 Americans were reported to be infected by the coronavirus after being vaccinated, Bloomberg adds, while pointing out the overall percentage is small as 95 million Americans have been fully vaccinated so far.
Regardless, the number of “breakthrough” coronavirus infections (cases among fully vaccinated people) will be skewed moving forward, given that only cases resulting in hospitalization and death will be counted.
Michael Kinch, a former drug developer who’s now associate vice chancellor at Washington University in St. Louis, says as much information as possible should be recorded on breakthroughs. Cases that don’t rise to hospitalization are still important to track, he said, since symptoms that aren’t as severe for someone could eventually lead to hospitalizations. Non-life-threatening symptoms can impact someone’s life greatly, and evolve over time, Kinch said.
“It’s essential that we stay on top of this,” he added. “If we let our guard our down, we will pay the price.”
