You should post the updated graphic as that is reflecting incorrect information due to CDC testing criteria.

Why abused? That implies that people might not be happy with a specific outcome?

Either there is an explanation to the data (ie not seeing the full picture), in which case provide it at the same time.

Or, the numbers are what they are, therefore accept it.

Without Chris adding the link so people can read the article themselves it’s just a bunch of waffle to ignore.

ALL over-50s will get Covid booster shots by autumn: People who got AstraZeneca 'are set to be offered a Pfizer jab' in new vaccine drive because it is more effective against Indian variant​


Tens of millions of Britons are expected to be offered a Pfizer booster jab this autumn as the vaccine has proved to be the most effective against the Delta variant.

The booster scheme, which was announced earlier this year, is set to start in September and should see 23million over-50s, vulnerable Britons and NHS and care home staff offered a third dose.

Extra vaccines would be rolled out in two stages — prioritising those most at risk of Covid, before the programme is extended.


While patients were initially expected to be offered the jab they were originally inoculated with, it is understood all patients will be offered the Pfizer jab as it has proven to be the most effective against the Delta variant.

A UK Government-backed study published earlier this year found that mixing and matching Covid vaccines may result in higher protection against the virus.

People who had been vaccinated with AstraZeneca's jab initially and then received a top-up with Pfizer's had nine times more antibodies than those who stuck to the UK vaccine.

Although antibodies are just one part of the immune response, the Oxford University researchers said the findings strongly suggested the approach could enhance immunity.

But it is understood the mix and match approach is not going to be used in the short term more broadly because there is a 'strong supply' of each vaccine type.

A senior HSE source told the Times: 'Currently there's no need for it. Currently we have plenty of vaccines. The amount of vaccine isn't an issue at all. There's no plan to do it. It's not under immediate consideration, but I wouldn't rule it out.'

The Government said analysis has shown that the Pfizer vaccine is 96 per cent effective against the Delta variant while the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is 92 per cent effective against hospitalisation after two doses.

Why don't they just throw everything in a big pot.

It was from the BNO Newsroom Twitter account but they appear to have deleted it. Before I posted it, I attempted to obtain the information myself from the Israeli Department of Health but I can't read Hebrew so I didn't get far.

Is this 'karma' or just the inevitable effects of virus mutation:
It is unclear how many in China are fully vaccinated, although authorities say more than 1.6 billion doses have been administered so far.

At least a dozen locations are now dealing with fresh infections, which authorities have attributed to the Delta variant.

Although case numbers are considerably lower than other places, it is considered the largest outbreak in months in China, a country that was largely successful in controlling the virus within its borders last year.

Next time they mess around with creating viruses maybe they should do it on a secure remote island :whistling:
