COVID Deaths in U.S. Now Nearly All Among Unvaccinated: Report

Nearly all of the U.S.’s recent coronavirus-related deaths last month were among those who hadn’t been vaccinated, according to a new analysis by The Associated Press.

The AP’s analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that only 150 of more than 18,000 virus-related deaths in the U.S. were of people who had been fully vaccinated.

Of the roughly 853,000 people hospitalized with the virus last month, fewer than 1,200 of them, or about 0.1%, were fully vaccinated, AP reported.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, CDC director, said the data proves her point about the effectiveness of vaccinations.

“Nearly every death, especially among adults, due to COVID-19, is, at this point, entirely preventable,” she said, AP reported.

About 63% of all eligible Americans 12 and older have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, with 53% fully vaccinated, according to CDC data.

COVID-19 deaths have dropped dramatically from a daily high of nearly 3,400 in mid-January to fewer than 300, AP reported.
