#CoronavirusNewsDesk says according to ABC News Data Report: It reveals how much protection #COVID19 jabs are giving people in NSW protection over unvaccinated people: At the peak of the outbreak between August 25 and September 7, 49.5 per 100,000 fully vaccinated people were infected with the virus, compared with 561 per 100,000 unvaccinated people.
The data was collated by NSW Health and released today.
COVID ICU admissions or deaths peaked between September 8 and September 21, in just 0.9 per 100,000 fully vaccinated people, compared with 15.6 per 100,000 unvaccinated.
It means people who had not had a COVID-19 jab were 16 times more likely to die, or get so sick they needed the top level of hospital care.
“Notably, young people with two doses of a vaccine experienced lower rates of infection and almost no serious disease, while those unvaccinated in this age group were at greater risk of developing COVID-19 and needing hospitalisation,” NSW chief health officer Kerry Chant said.
The data showed that 21 per 100,000 fully vaccinated 12-to-19-year-olds caught COVID-19, compared with 488 per 100,000 unvaccinated people in the same age group.
While the vast majority of the 61,800 cases were unvaccinated, 3,736 (6.1 per cent) had two doses of vaccine, 493 were hospitalised, 30 admitted to ICU and 47 died.
The report noted that of the 47 deaths in double vaccinated people, 29 were aged care residents and the other 18 had significant comorbidities.
Of the 30 in ICU, 26 had significant comorbidities and only four had none.
“The COVID-19 Delta outbreak has been the biggest challenge the state has faced during the pandemic because of its transmissibility. However, this report shows vaccination has been key in protecting ourselves, our families, and the community from the harmful effects of the virus,” Dr Chant said.
Several social distancing restrictions were eased in NSW ahead of schedule today.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said the state’s high vaccination rate meant things like caps on the number of fully inoculated people allowed in private homes, and density restrictions on indoor retail and hospitality settings could be eased.
However, people who are not vaccinated must continue living in an effective lockdown until December 15, or, when NSW reaches 95 per cent double-dose coverage of people aged 16 and older.
This morning, the NSW government announced 93.9 people in that age group had received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 89.8 per cent had been given both jabs.
