70% of hospitalised Covid patients are vaccinated, but the vaccines are working

Belgian health minister Vandenbroucke (Flemish socialist/Vooruit) told the health select committee up to seventy percent of Covid patients in Flemish hospitals are fully vaccinated.  The figure may raise an eyebrow, but on closer inspection doesn’t mean the vaccines are not working.

333 patients were in a Flemish hospital with Covid between 16 and 22 October.  70.9% were fully vaccinated.  29.1% were not. However, the facts still show that people with Covid who are unvaccinated end up in hospital more quickly than patients who are fully vaccinated.  In Flanders over 90% of adults are fully vaccinated and this group is far larger than the group of unvaccinated people.

Look at Belgium as a whole are the figure for the same period shows 54% of Covid patients in hospital were fully vaccinated, a reflection of the lower vaccination rates in some parts of the country.

The figures also show that overall and compared with earlier waves fewer people are ending up in hospital when they catch Covid.  The number of hospitalisations during the current fourth wave is markedly lower than during the three previous waves. Hospitalisations, admissions to ICUs and the number of patients on a ventilator are all far lower as this Sciensano chart shows.

A comparison between September/October last year and this year shows over 5.5% of cases ended up in hospital last year, whereas this year the figure hasn’t exceeded 3.5%.

Steven Callens of Ghent University Hospital UZ explains why fully vaccinated people are ending up in hospital: “The delta variant is catchier.  Corona measures were relaxed in October and protection against mild illness through vaccination does start to wane after six months”.

Fully vaccinated patients in hospital are often older and may have underlying health issues.

“Few healthy vaccinated people end up in hospital.  If they do, hospitalisation is shorter” says Callens.  “In critical care many patients are not fully vaccinated”.

Figures from the health minister show 60% of patients in Flemish ICUs are fully vaccinated, 40% are unvaccinated.”

Note how they keep stating “fully vaccinated.” 

Here in America, the CDC defines “fully vaccinated” as two weeks out from your second shot. Most countries do similar. 

That means if you have side effects from the first shot or the second shot and end up in the hospital up to two weeks after the second shot you’ll be counted statistically as someone who is “unvaccinated.”

It’s a very simple way to fix the numbers and count vaccine side effects as the supposed consequences of being “unvaccinated.”

Regardless, the whole idea behind these shots from day one was that they were 90%+ effective at preventing you from getting covid, which has been admitted for months now to be completely false.

Remember how many times we were told “over 99%” of hospitalized covid patients were unvaxxed?

Is the CDC or any of the hundreds of news outlets which spread that falsehood ever going to issue a correction? (That’s a rhetorical question, of course!)
Now they’re down to claiming the vax may reduce your rate of hospitalization for 5 or so months at which point you’re going to need another “booster,” potentially in perpetuity. 

Remember this gem?

We’re probably just weeks away from governments being forced to admit the proportion of “vaxxed” to “unvaxxed” being hospitalized is close to equal and statistically meaningless.
An FDA panelist who signed off on boosters despite a total dearth of data already admitted they backed the additional shots based off “a gut feeling rather than based on really truly serious data.”

Panelist Dr Eric Rubin said before signing off on the vax for kids 5-11 that “we’re never going to learn about how safe this vaccine is unless we start giving it.”

RT – ‘Extraordinary devastation’: Mosul healthcare inadequate months after ‘liberation’ – UNICEF to RT
The healthcare system in Mosul is still far from adequate due to the “massive extent of devastation” inflicted, more than six months since the end of the battle for the city, UNICEF’s representative in Iraq told RT.
The situation in Mosul remains tough, with its residents having extremely limited access to health facilities, despite all the efforts of the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and other humanitarian organizations, Peter Hawkins said. The official has recently paid a personal visit to Mosul to hand over equipment to a public health laboratory and witnessed the situation on the ground.
“What we need to understand is the extent of the problem. This is a massive city. Mosul city probably faced one of the biggest urban warfares since World War II and 2.2 – 2.4 million people affected. It’s an enormous challenge to everybody to try and clear everything up and get the people working again,” Hawkins told RT.
The city is still struggling to adjust some seven months after it was “liberated” from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists by Iraqi troops, backed by the US-led coalition. West Mosul has suffered the most, enduring a months-long siege and heavy bombardment, and the situation there is still worse than in other parts of the city.
“If you’re in the east side it’s much better, on the west side the level of devastation was extraordinary. But wherever you are, the number of healthcare centers, hospitals is very limited, the extent of the damage has affected it,” Hawkins said.
“You have to understand the massive extent of devastation,” he added. “It’s a wide area, wide levels of devastation, families have to walk enormous distances to be able to get the health care.”

More than half a year after being liberated, Mosul’s battle wounds still fester. Entire districts lie in ruins with bodies scattered in the streets, and locals say they have yet to see the aid they were promised.
Iraq’s once-bustling second largest city, Mosul now looks like a battle-scarred shadow of its former self. More than seven months after Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi swooped into Mosul to declare “total victory” over Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists there, large swathes of the city are still nothing but deserted crumbling ruins.
Aerial footage taken by the Ruptly video news agency reveals the devastation that still straddle the once densely populated areas, the consequence of incessant US-led coalition bombings and months of heavy fighting between Iraqi forces and the terrorists.
