More patients after breakthrough vaccination in intensive care units

According to a media report, the proportion of vaccinated corona patients in intensive care units has increased. As the newspapers of the Funke media group reported, of the 1186 Corona patients who had to receive “intensive care” in Germany from mid-August to early September were 119 vaccinated against the virus. This corresponds to a quota of around ten percent.

In the period from the beginning of February to the beginning of September, the proportion of vaccinated corona patients in German intensive care units was 1, 84 percent (210 of 11419 cases). The newspapers are referring to a response from the Federal Ministry of Health to a request from the left-wing parliamentary group in the Bundestag.

As the newspapers further reported, the increased proportion of vaccinated corona patients in German intensive care units depends on information from authorities and experts mainly related to the sharp rise in the number of people vaccinated overall. In the meantime, more than 63 percent of the population in Germany have been vaccinated twice against the virus.

According to the report, the RKI stated: “It is to be expected that more vaccination breakthroughs will be recorded over time, as more and more people are vaccinated and Sars-CoV-2 is currently spreading again. This increases the likelihood of coming into contact with the virus as a fully vaccinated person. “

The Ministry of Health emphasized the protective effect of the vaccination against a serious corona disease on the leaves. “The fact is that vaccinations protect and a lack of vaccination protection is the main reason why people with Covid – 19 – Infection must be treated in intensive care “, the ministry announced accordingly.

Also the President of the Association of Intensive Care and Emergency Physicians (Divi), Gernot Marx said: “The patients with severe and fatal corona courses are in almost all cases unvaccinated.” The vaccination breakthroughs with severe courses, on the other hand, are still in the single-digit percentage range.

In addition, the vaccination breakthrough mostly affects people whose “immune system is weakened by chemotherapy or long-term cortisone treatment, or who are older than 80 years are “. The intensive care doctor went on to say: “Unfortunately we are also seeing more and more people under 60 severe or fatal courses that are not vaccinated ”. The following applies: “The corona vaccination is an effective protection against serious illnesses.”
