Covid-19 Sinovac Vaccine for Medics in Thailand.

An Analysis of Thailand’s Medical personnel and COVID.

The Headline:

Hundreds of Thai medical workers infected despite Sinovac vaccinations

The story:

Thailand’s health ministry said on Sunday more than 600 medical workers who received two doses of China’s Sinovac vaccine have been infected with COVID-19, as authorities weigh giving booster doses to raise immunity.

The vaccine was approved for emergency use this month by the World Health Organization, which said efficacy results showed it prevented symptomatic disease in 51% of those vaccinated, and prevented severe Covid-19 and hospitalisation in 100% of the studied population.

The Facts:

97% of Thailand’s 700,000 medics are fully inoculated.
880 medical personnel were infected with COVID-19 between April 1st and July 10th.
7 have died.
5 were not vaccinated
1 had received just one Sinovac dose
1 had received two Sinovac doses.

The Analysis:

Two Doses of Sinovac vaccine.

677,348 medical personnel received two doses of Sinovac.
618 became infected. (912 infections per million).
1 died (1.47 deaths per million people.) or (1.62 deaths per 1,000 infected).

One Doses of Sinovac or Not Vaccinated.

About 25,000 medical personnel had received either no dose, or just 1 dose of Sinovac.
162 became infected. (880-618=162) (6,480 infections per million).
6 died (240 deaths per million people) or (37 deaths per 1,000 infected).

Conclusion:

Based on the figures above, the Sinovac vaccine, with both doses is well worth it.  But is not 100% effective.
