Is it true that 60% of COVID-19 deaths in the UK were vaccinated, and 43% were fully vaccinated???
Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!
Global Research : 60% Of UK COVID-19 Deaths Were Vaccinated!
Teodrose Fikremariam of Global Research triumphantly claimed that the “jab propaganda falls apart” because Public Health England revealed that vaccinated people accounted for 60% of COVID-19 deaths in the UK.
That article is being actively shared by antivaxxers on social media, so let’s take a look at what the FACTS really are…
Fact Check : 60% Of UK COVID-19 Deaths Were Vaccinated?
Global Research is a well-known purveyor of fake news. So it’s not surprising to read all sorts of “bad news” about vaccines on their website.
Let me show you why Global Research is deliberately misleading you, and why you should really stop reading or sharing their fake news.
Fact #1 : Global Research Didn’t Even Look At The Real Data
Teodrose Fikremariam plucked the numbers from a Guardian opinion piece by David Spiegelhalter and Anthony Masters.
He was too lazy to even understand what they meant, never mind actually looking up the actual Public Health England (PHE) data.
Fact #2 : PHE Data Was Only On Variants
If Teodrose took the effort to look up the PHE data, he would have noticed that it only covered 4 variants of concern (VOC) and 9 variants under investigation (VOI) in the UK.
Spiegelhalter and Masters were specifically referring to Technical Briefing 17, which was released on 25 June 2021.
Even though the UK reported over 5 million cases of COVID-19, this PHE report only covered 319,856 cases that have been confirmed to be from those VOC and VOI.
In other words – this VOC + VOI data only covered 6.4% of COVID-19 cases in the UK.
Fact #3 : Global Research Twisted Facts
Spiegelhalter and Masters were talking about the Delta variant in their opinion piece, not COVID-19 in general.
They were pointing out that the deaths are inevitable, because the vaccines cannot offer 100% protection.
Yet Global Research chose to ignore the SOURCE of their article, and instead used the data to mislead you.
Fact #4 : Too Few Deaths Statistically
I took the trouble of summarising the Delta case numbers from PHE Technical Briefing 17, so you can better see what the real situation is like.
A single vaccine dose offers robust protection against the Delta variant infections and hospitalisation, and the second dose offers even more protection.
|Delta Variant||Total||No Vaccine||1 Dose||2 Doses|
But why are there more deaths with 2 doses? Does it mean that the vaccine is dangerous?
The truth is – there are too few deaths – just 117 or 0.13% of all infected – for the numbers at this point to be statistically significant.
Fact #5 : People Will Die Of Other Causes
The deaths are likely related to age and co-morbidities, because if you look at the age data for those who died, the vast majority were over 50 years of age.
So it is highly possible that some of these deaths would have happened, with or without a COVID-19 infection.
|Total||No Vaccine||1 Dose||2 Doses|
|< 50 years old||8||6
|> 50 years old||109||38
You may recall fake news about 229 people in Taiwan dying from the AstraZeneca vaccine. Autopsies later proved that they died of natural causes.
As I pointed out in that article, COVID-19 vaccines cannot make people immune from other causes of death.
With or without COVID-19 vaccines, people will continue to die of other causes.
Fact #6 : Vaccines Do Not Need 10-15 Years To Develop
Global Research repeats the old fake claim that safe and effect vaccines need 10-15 years to develop, test and get approved. That’s utter nonsense.
For example, new flu vaccines are formulated on a yearly basis, with new strains chosen by the WHO Global Influenza Surveillance and Response System.
A completely new vaccine can “traditionally” take 10-15 years to develop, but that’s because of red tape, funding and manufacturing restrictions.
With COVID-19, researchers not only collaborated and shared data, they received massive funding. This allowed them to start work on a vaccine even before it became a pandemic, and start building manufacturing facilities.
They were also able to rapidly recruit volunteers for their large trials, which would not be possible in normal times, and “traditional” vaccine funding.
Whatever lies Global Research may tell you, COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be safe and effective through large trials involving hundreds of thousands of volunteers.
