Currently, the US has reported 30.9 million active cases and over 570,000 deaths. According to official data, in April 2021, 32.8 percent of the American population received at least one dose of the corona vaccine.
Vaccination is underway in many countries of the world to control the Corona Pencemic. At the same time, in the wake of the rise in virus infection, India has also accelerated the process of vaccination. According to government figures, so far more than 8.70 crore (8,70,77,474) people have been given Kovid-19 vaccine dose.
Meanwhile, even after the rapid pace of vaccines, the increase in the number of deaths due to Kovid has started to raise questions about how effective the corona vaccine is. These days a lot of questions are being raised about the effectiveness of the vaccine. These questions are being raised especially in countries like USA where the death rate due to COVID-19 is still high.
How effective is the vaccine
After a three-phase clinical trial, Bharat Biotech said that the vaccine they made, ie Covaxin Corona, is 81 percent effective on infected bodies. However, he also said that the efficacy of the vaccine is not to be confused. How effective the vaccine is depends not on the clinical trial but on the introduction of the vaccine to people outside. Vaccination of any infected outside and its effect on it differs most from clinical trials.
What about countries where the death rate is still high?
Currently, the US has reported 30.9 million active cases and over 570,000 deaths. This is a terrible number. Many mainstream media platforms have misquoted these numbers to criticize the effectiveness of the vaccine. These platforms suggest that since the U.S. The death rate is still high, so vaccines are not working. This claim is baseless. Actually the vaccine has shown high efficacy as well as a high percentage of effectiveness.
According to official data, in April 2021, 32.8 percent of the American population received at least one dose of the corona vaccine, and only 19 percent were fully vaccinated. The most important thing to see here is not the high death rate. Instead, see how much the death rate has decreased. In the year 2020, the number of deaths due to Kovid-19 in the US was the third highest. This figure had the highest death rate among adults older than 85 years.
Wrong information is being spread about the vaccine
Mainstream media platforms regularly publish stories and content about high mortality and active cases despite being vaccinated. This is nothing but sensationalism. The easiest way to see it is common sense. The most important function of a vaccine during an epidemic is to reduce the number of deaths due to the epidemic. The pace of vaccination has increased across the world, so that is why the death rate in America is also continuously falling every week. The same situation is with other countries as well.
In England and Wales, weekly deaths due to coronovirus are at a five-month low. The National Statistics Office recorded a 36 percent drop in the number of deaths from Corona on 19 March last week. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, two vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) available in the US since December accounted for 90 percent of the deaths in two-dose deaths and 95 percent in preventing Kovid-19. Effectiveness is shown. (Written By- Priyanka Deo)
