A new CDC study shows unvaccinated Americans were 11 times more likely to die from COVID-19.
From April-June, unvaccinated people accounted for 95% of cases, 93% of hospitalizations, and 92% of deaths.
From June-July, unvaccinated people accounted for 82% of cases, 86% of hospitalizations, and 84% of deaths.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said during a White House COVID-19 briefing on Friday that while more vaccinated Americans are being hospitalized, it's nowhere near the number of unvaccinated Americans who are being hospitalized and dying from COVID-19.
In fact, over the past two months, when the Delta variant was responsible for almost every single COVID-19 case, those who were unvaccinated were nearly five times more likely to catch COVID-19, 10 times more likely to be hospitalized, and 11 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than those who were fully vaccinated.
