Covid-19 Sinovac Vaccine for Medics in Indonesia.
An Analysis of Thailand’s Medical personnel and COVID.
Indonesian Covid deaths add to questions over Sinovac vaccine.
At least 10 out of 26 Indonesian doctors who have died from Covid-19 this month (June 2021) had been fully vaccinated with Sinovac, prompting health experts to consider whether medics should receive alternative doses to boost immunity.
Between March 2020 and 26 June 2021, 949 medical workers in Indonesia died after becoming infected with Covid-19, according to the IMA’s Risk Mitigation Team. They included 401 doctors and 315 nurses.
In Kudus, a town in central Java, more than 500 medical workers have tested positive for Covid-19 over the last two weeks, including one doctor who died. All were fully vaccinated.
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.
In the 16 months between March 2020 and June 2021, 401 doctors have died from COVID. An average of 25 per month.
In the 15 months between March 2020 and May 2021, 375 doctors have died from COVID. An average of 25 per month.
In June 2021, 26 doctors have died from COVID. Almost the same as the previous average.
Indonesia began using the Vaccine on 14th January 2021.
The Vaccine, from the figures above does not appear to be working very well.
