Dominican Rublic posts sobering Covid numbers

Santo Domingo.- 88% of those admitted to hospitals for COVID-19 do not have a dose of the vaccine against the virus, meanwhile, 7% have only one.

The Minister of Public Health, Daniel Rivera, told Diario Libre that chest x-rays show that the unvaccinated arrive at hospitals with highly compromised lungs.

According to the epidemiological bulletin issued this Thursday, 45% of the beds enabled to care for critical patients with coronavirus are occupied and 28% of those in intermediate care. Meanwhile, 34% of the ventilators are in use.

Rivera pointed out that 5% of those admitted for COVID-19 have the two doses of the vaccine. No one who has the three doses of the vaccine has been admitted to a COVID-19 unit, thus reaffirming the importance of the reinforcement.

45% of the critical beds are occupied. That’s not big news. The real news is the LIE that states that 88% of the people arriving with Covid haven’t been vaccinated. Everyone I know that has gotten sick lately has already had 2-3 shots of the vaccine.

I wonder where Johnny Doe get his information from. Please let us know your source. By the way, in my circle of acquaintances only last week three people got infected, one very seriously. No one of the three are vaccinated. All three now recommend to do it as soon as possible.
