This was a much needed and informative article regarding vaccinations vs Delta. So much more of this and less of every other anecdotal thing forever. One would imagine after 2 months we'd be getting the same from UK's NHS, or USA's CDC, but alas they're keeping their infected vaccinated metrics close to the chest for political reasons, which hurts everyone. I do hope you update these numbers with your ongoing conclusions. Great work!

Measuring the number of total sick people of vaccinated versus the unvaccinated is a rather inaccurate and misleading metric, isn't it? We shouldn't be surprised if the majority of sick people are vaccinated- the very vast majority of people there are vaccinated. It would be like saying that most are the Israelis with recent heart attacks, or even divorces, are vaccinated. Does that indicate anything?

I would think you should be showing the rate of vaccinated Delta infections RELATIVE to unvaccinated. Looking forward, and thanks for a very informative article.

{Assume population of 100,000: 10,000 vaccinated, 90,000 unvaccinated. ER has 1000 cases: 800 unvaccinated, 200 vaccinated. Do the math. 200/10,000 of the vaccinated in the ER. 800/90,000 of the unvaccinated in the ER. I like you so I did the math for you.} I am not doing the math for Aarieh Kovler / Substack; I am writing them off as a weany reporter collecting a paycheck and substack is trying to make a buck.

OF COURSE there are more vaccinated people with Covid because THERE ARE MORE OF THEM!! 399/5.6 million fully vaccinated people. Don't look at the number of hospitalizations, look at the percent of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated who are hospitalized or have severe illness. The denominator of the vaccinated is larger. Basic math.

I love reading your reporting on COVID-19. Israel is unique with vaccine compliance, and is so valuable to see results of Delta variant. I wish we could hope for compliance in USA! Many thanks from a University Educated Registered Nurse.🏆

But, there is a certain set of parameters completely missing. Namely, you talk about vaccinated versus unvaccinated. However, that may be irrelevant. Health conditions before contracting the virus is probably more important. For example, recovered persons are most likely healthy which consequently gives them better defense. Do such data not exist?

Thanks for the article. But you should update the graphs every once in a while to see if the conclusion is still valid. When looking at the last two figures the difference between now (August 21) and then (Jan 21) has become less significant as when compared to July 21. Currently there are roughly 2600 cases (7 day average) compared to the 8200 back in January. That is not still one tenth as it used to be in July. It has diminished to practically a third. When looking at absolute numbers it is 3000 daily cases vs. 10000 cases. Therefore it would be most interesting to see whether the proportions of unvaccinated vs. vaccinated people has changed and who is catching COVID these days. Especially in terms of age distribution.

Great article! Looking forward for the part II analysis with the most recent data. It would be highly interesting to compare the current total cases/severe cases ratio with January data. Thank you!

Hi, very interesting article. Could you give me the source of your first graph, the one showing percentages of vaccinated by age ranges in Israel? Thank you very much in advance

Every vaccinated person has to read this and hope to god it cant possibly mean they made abad choice. Every not vaccinated person looks at this and says- yea, i KNOW I made the right choice. 100% certain of some effect from vacinne already failing and may actually make things worse in the long haul because of the 81 severely ill in the hospital, 90.12% have been vaccinated while only 85% of all adults have been. So if it goes bad, being vaccinated makes you more likely to get the worst-ever.

Great presentation, thank you for your hard work! Could you please share the graphic sources?

When are your graphs updated? We are in September now!

Please share the sources for the graphs and the statistics shared

Clearly the vaccine was developed based on the earlier strains Not the mutating Delta strain???

Therefore not effective NOW?

Yes, very interesting! And yes, updates please.

Are vaccinated tourists allowed into Israel?

Hi, very interesting article. Could you give me the source of your first graph, the one showing percentages of vaccinated by age ranges in Israel? Thank you very much in advance

Would you be so kind as to link to source of your graphs from Israeli Health Ministry? Website is very difficult to search in English.
