Tras reportarse 14 muertes adicionales por COVID-19 este Día de Reyes Magos, el Departamento de Salud emitió un comunicado de prensa para anunciar un nuevo formato para informar estos fallecimientos, y a su vez, el secretario Carlos Mellado explicó por qué últimamente se están registrando más muertes entre personas vacunadas.

After reporting 14 additional deaths from COVID-19 this Three Kings Day , the Department of Health issued a press release to announce a new format to report these deaths, and in turn, Secretary Carlos Mellado explained why more are being recorded lately deaths among vaccinated people.

Health modified the graphic representation of deaths, which now includes the deceased who had the vaccine booster.

This Wednesday, of the 14 deceased people, nine were vaccinated, one of them with the booster, and five were not vaccinated.

From January 1, 2022 to January 6, 2022, Health reported 20 deaths from COVID-19 of vaccinated and 13 of unvaccinated.

“We are providing the information necessary for the population to make decisions based on scientific evidence and feel confident that the data provided is recent, objective and with meaning for the person who reads it. Unfortunately, most of the people who have passed away are people with pre-existing conditions and who were either not vaccinated or had been vaccinated but had not received the booster dose, despite being eligible for it. We think that this information will once again show the value of the vaccine and the booster dose, "said Mellado López on the new format for presenting deaths.

“The report of people who died a few days shows that the number of deaths is higher in vaccinated people than in non-vaccinated people; the explanation for this is that 74% of the population is vaccinated, so proportionally, the number will be higher. We understand that this can create confusion. We want to clarify it with this new way of sharing data with citizens ”, he explained.

Mellado recalled that the vaccine reduces its effectiveness over time, especially after six months since the last dose in the case of Pfizer and Moderna, or two months in the case of Johnson & Johnson.

“Fully vaccinated people have a much lower risk of COVID-19 virus infection and dying from virus complications compared to unvaccinated people. This risk is further reduced in people fully vaccinated with a booster dose when compared to those who do not have the additional dose. It has been shown that the effectiveness of the vaccine diminishes over time. For this reason, it is necessary for eligible people to go to a vaccination center to receive their reinforcement or 'booster' dose ”, added Mellado López.

At this time, people eligible to receive the booster are age 12 and older who received the Pfizer vaccine and age 18 or older who received the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
