Not really a cause for celebration, other than to rub it in the face of Governor Walz, who has repeatedly lied about breakthru events, including most notably claiming last fall that none of the recent deaths would be in the vaxed. Since then probably 40% have been in the vaxed. You may recall that after last week’s report, Dave’s tables showed that we were over 60% of cases being breakthrus and given the time lag for processing, I said that in real time, we were likely over 50% in all breakthru events, including hosps and deaths. Well, a week later, the trend continues and we are very close to that watershed. And I am more convinced than ever that in real time today, we are likely at 75% to 80% breakthrough cases, and over 50% on hosps and deaths. 45,000 cases, over 800 hosps and over 150 deaths in the vaxed reported this week. Funny how we aren’t hearing that epidemic of the unvaxed nonsense any more. And yes, I understand, and you see us print our analysis supporting this here, that per capita rates in the vaxed are still much lower and that is the better measure of vaccine effectiveness. But as always, my foremost concern is appropriate public policy and the sheer numbers of breakthru events will continue to feed the epiterrorists and their hysteria. Full charts up in a post soon.
