LETTER: If you do the math, COVID-19 data shows that unvaccinated more likely to be hospitalized

Daily data reports that show more vaccinated people are getting COVID may be discouraging people from getting vaccinated, letter writer says
2022-01-31 ICU vaccination status

It is no wonder that the unvaccinated are reluctant to get vaccinated. Why? Because daily reports state that more vaccinated people than unvaccinated ones are testing positive for COVID-19.

However, if you take the time to do the math — my results are based on numbers taken from the Ontario government website for all of Ontario on a recent day — it shows that you are almost five times more likely to end up in ICU with COVID-19 and almost twice as likely to end up in hospital if you choose not to get the vaccine. 

I'm just saying.
