Some useful stats

The Herald has some useful stats on cases and hospitalised cases in NZ, by vaccination status:

Based on the cases in the last fortnight, unvaccinated people are 13 times more likely to get Covid-19 than people who have received two doses, and 65 times more likely to be hospitalised.

Also of the 475 cases who have been hospitalised, 308 are aged under 50. Only 32 of the 475 were fully vaccinated.

Of the 51 cases that went into ICU, 19 are aged under 50.

Of the 44 deaths, 11 are aged under 60.

I’m very pleased I am vaccinated. I don’t think people should be coerced into vaccinations, but I think the risks are minuscule compared to the benefits.
