Almost half the U.K.’s recent Covid-19 deaths are of people who have been vaccinated.
Deaths among people who got the Delta variant as of June 21, as reported by Public Health England.
The UK has recorded a total of 117 deaths in people with the Delta coronavirus variant, from 92,029 Delta cases analysed.
109 of these deaths were in the over 50 years group:
- 38 were not vaccinated
- 21 had one vaccine dose.
- 50 had 2 vaccine doses.
8 of these deaths were in the under 50 years group:
- 6 not vaccinated
- 2 with one vaccine dose.
- None with 2 vaccine doses.
The elderly, even when fully vaccinated, are still much more likely to be severely affected by the Delta variant of COVID-19.
The younger people get greater protection from both doses of a vaccine.
