A study published on Friday (30) indicates that people who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19 account for about 85% of detainees in France, including in intensive care units (ICU) and 78% of deaths from the virus.
Between May 31 and July 11, unvaccinated people accounted for 84% of conventional hospital admissions and 85% in critical care services.
Fully vaccinated patients made up only 7% of admissions, which is five times lower than the proportion of vaccinations in the French population during this period, according to the first data.
At the time of the study, approximately 35% of the population had been fully vaccinated and 45% had received no vaccine at all.
Published for the first time, this multi-ministerial study was obtained by combining data from the results of covid-19 trials, vaccines, and conventional hospitalization or intensive care.
“The recent increase in the number of hospital admissions is due to people not being vaccinated,” the report stated.
On July 11, for example, the whole of France recorded the admission of 55 unvaccinated people and 7 vaccinated people to hospitals.
Of the deaths, 78% were from unvaccinated people, 11% were from fully vaccinated people, and 11% were from people who only received the first dose.
The delta variant, in turn, appears higher among the control tests when patients arrive at the hospital, indicating that this strain “causes a slightly higher proportion of severe cases.”
However, the scope of the cases studied does not allow to draw general conclusions, warns the body that collected the data.
