Data updated Friday continued to show a minuscule risk of serious COVID-19 infections among people who’ve been vaccinated — as a former White House coronavirus advisor called the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s communication strategy a “disaster.”
New figures posted on the CDC’s website showed that just 6,587 — or 0.004 percent — of the 163 million Americans who’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 had suffered serious “breakthrough” infections as of Monday.
Of that total, 6,239 people were hospitalized and 1,263 died, according to the data.
Those numbers amount to 0.0038 percent and less than 0.0008 percent, respectively.
On Tuesday, the CDC reversed course and recommended that fully vaccinated people wear masks indoors in public places in areas where the highly contagious Delta variant is surging.
