Can someone good with data explain to me why there isn't a more tightly correlated relationship between case-fatality-rate for Covid, and vaccine uptake? If the vaccines prevent hospitalization and death, shouldn't we have seen a pretty significant drop in the case fatality rate as vaccines were deployed? Instead, it flat for almost the whole year, then dropped slightly from 1.8% to 1.6%. The introduction of omicron has sent it to a freefall, by contrast.
I think that vaccine-supporters now claim that vaccine was never meant to save you from covid.
>>14103371>>14103392The data is clear:Covid was deadly as fuck before the vaccine rollout and became far less deadly after a significant portion of the poplation got vaccinated. Only around June 2021 were enough people vaccinated and we can clearly see that because the death rate is decreasing there in your chart.
>>14103744Looks a lot like South Africa's curve, which has a shitty vaccination rate.
>>14103371Most of the confirmed cases are from unvaxxed people because vaxxed people don't even know if they have it so even if vax prevents death the CFR is not going to drop.
>>14103744Maybe in the United States. In the United Kingdom, COVID-19 deaths for every age group except 75 and above was superior in 2021 despite the vaccination rollout. You can actually check the data yourself in Office of National Statistics for weeks 29 to 47.
>>14103914Unless deaths for unvaccinated people were increasing five-fold compared to the previous year that does not make any sense. Also, the unvaccinated age group dropped significantly which should have a natural decreasing effect on mortality rate.
>>14103371Simpsons paradox, deaths among the unvaccinated are rising incredibly fast, while deaths among the vaccinated are rising very slowly. https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-breakthrough-data
>>14104584>no absolute risk valueSomething like 0.6 and probably concentrated among certain age ranges. The wonder of statistics.
>>14104594Yes, that is correct, Omicron is extremely mild.
