Covid vaccines protect against Delta, but their effectiveness wanes
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-09-17
The rise in the rate of hospitalizations and deaths among the fully vaccinated continued with today's update covering the period up to 9/13. Chart. Code and snapshots on GitHub.
Hospitalizations from COVID19 among the fully vaccinated went from 5.1/100K to 5.7/100 and deaths from COVID19 among the fully vaccinated went from 1.2/100K to 1.4/100K over six days.
I have no idea what comparable numbers are for other diseases, but if 1 out of every 17,500 people vaccinated against small pox or measles was getting hospitalized with the disease, we'd have heard about it by now.
Show HN: Time Series of CDC's Covid-19 Vaccine Breakthrough Case Reporting
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-09-11
The CDC have been providing "COVID-19 Vaccine Breakthrough Case Investigation and Reporting" information for points in time at close to weekly intervals. Every update erases the previous information and there doesn't seem to be an easily accessible table of these data. Snapshots of the page can be found on archive.today and I have saved both those and some recent manually downloaded copies from cdc.gov.
Because copying & pasting by hand is error-prone, I wrote some code to extract the bits and pieces.
The repo is `nanis/covid19-breakthrough` on GitHub. Snapshots are in the `snapshots` directory. There is also a CSV containing the time series of reported numbers of non-fatal hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 among the fully vaccinated.
`out/chart.html` shows the time series of fully vaccinated population in millions, hospitalizations and deaths among the fully vaccinated per 100,000 fully vaccinated individuals. You can view it locally by running a simple local web server. There is a copy online.
