The Directorate of Research, Studies and Evaluation of Statistics (DREES) published a study on Friday confirming the efficacy of vaccination against infections and hospitalization in critical care.
New statistics support the effectiveness of vaccination against COVID-19. Director General of Health at Orly Airport on Friday Jerome Salomon Presentation of figures for the latest study conducted by the Directorate of Research, Studies and Evaluation of Statistics (DREES) on the effects of vaccination. “We have eight times less contamination when we are vaccinated and we have an 11 times lower risk of entering critical care,” he said.
To conduct this study, Drees expressed the vaccination, hospitalization and screening statistics for Covid-19 recorded between August 2 and 8. The study states that, “Between August 2 and 8, the number of positive RT-PCR PCR reactions per 100,000 unvaccinated people was approximately 400 versus about 50 per 100,000 fully vaccinated people, roughly eight.” If they suggest that vaccination significantly reduces the risk of contracting the virus, these numbers should be taken with caution because there is significant bias. Fully vaccinated people undergo much less testing than unvaccinated people, especially because Health pass.
In fact, just over 400,000 fully vaccinated people have taken PCR tests, while the unvaccinated account for more than 1 million tests performed (out of a total of 1,703,417). The ratio of testing between vaccinated and unvaccinated people, reported to 100,000 people, appears unbalanced.
Five times more deaths than unvaccinated people
On the other hand, the statistics are much clearer regarding hospitalization in critical care. Among those admitted to hospital during this period, 84% of critical care admissions and 76% of conventional hospital admissions are due to unvaccinated people, while fully vaccinated patients account for 9% and 17%, respectively. .” Drees study explains.
By comparing the numbers with the population in each vaccinated case, this makes critical care admissions 11 times greater among the unvaccinated than among the fully vaccinated. This gap is even more significant given that “the proportion of people who are not vaccinated is 38% and the proportion of people who are fully vaccinated is 47%,” Drees recalls. Thus, these figures confirm that vaccination better protects against severe forms of the disease, even if it is not 100% effective.
“This is a very important message to all the population who still doubt the importance of vaccination […] Jerome Salomon insisted that there was a real protective effect of vaccination with the vaccines we have in France.
Regarding mortality, the study adds, “these percentages are as high as 75% for unvaccinated people and 20% for fully vaccinated people.” For a similar population size, this represents “the number of deaths among the unvaccinated in that week 4.7 times higher than in those fully vaccinated.”
