Coronavirus Update 44
The 4th wave has turned in North Carolina and in most of the country.
The reports are out there that breakthrough cases are roughly 1 per 5000 vaccinated persons. (Leonhardt D. 2021)
If you have had 2 doses of an mRNA vaccine, you have a very very small risk of a significant hospitalization and almost no chance of death from the Delta variant based on statistics overall.
Being Unvaccinated now is the greatest risk factor for a negative outcome. Advancing age and co morbid disease add layers of risk on top of the vaccination status
Most states are seeing an uptick in vaccinations as delta has changed some peoples minds.
We are continuing to see that the lambda, gamma and mu variants are not an issue yet and likely will not be in the United States as delta is outcompeting them.
As it stands today, the United States has had 41 million known cases and almost 660,000 deaths. This is a significant uptick in deaths over the previous 2 week cycles and hopefully will slow down with the case volume dropping again.
There is still no change in the knowledge that more than 80% of deaths are skewed toward the over 55 age group and 94% of all deaths occurred in a person with a co-morbid chronic health disease. More biological antibody medicines are on the horizon that may along with a mixture of vitamin A , D, zinc, quercetin and melatonin be employed for a safe resolution to COVID19.

As with the first newsletter on this topic, keep solace with the fact that there is a 99+% chance of survival for all of us regardless of vaccination. However,
mathematically, you now have a 99.9998% chance of survival once vaccinated and the vaccine safety for the mRNA vaccines continues to look good.
Why take on that extra risk?
