    Cases – including breakthroughs – are rising, but hospitalizations and deaths remain relatively low

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    As of July 26, more than 163 million people in the United States have been deemed “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19. This includes roughly 317,000 Alaskans.

    Despite being fully vaccinated, thousands of Americans are falling gravely ill or dying with COVID. The CDC has received reports from 49 U.S. states and territories of 6,587 patients with COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infection who were hospitalized or died.

    The CDC notes that the number of breakthrough infections is likely higher than what is reported.

    “National surveillance relies on passive and voluntary reporting, and data might not be complete or representative,” the CDC website states.

    Additionally, the CDC is only tracking breakthrough cases that result in hospitalizations or deaths. All other breakthroughs are no longer included in their reports.

    There are still relatively few new cases, deaths or hospitalizations when compared to earlier this year.

    According to the State of Alaska there have been 656 vaccine breakthrough cases between Feb. 1 and June 30. A total of 17 of these cases resulted in hospitalization, and in two instances fully vaccinated Alaskans have died with COVID. A total of 391 hospitalizations and 58 deaths were reported in persons not fully vaccinated during this time span.

    “No vaccines are 100% effective, therefore, cases among a small percentage of vaccinated people are expected and are classified as vaccine breakthrough (VB) cases,” a state bulletin from July 15 stated.

    Certain areas of the state, however, are now reporting significant breakthrough cases.

    Seldovia Village Tribe released a statement on July 27 warning area residents that since July 19 there have been 17 new cases in the area with 65% of those being from fully vaccinated people who have nonetheless contracted the virus.

    Breakthrough cases are being ascribed to the new Delta variant, according to the CDC. The emerging breakthroughs are leading the CDC and local health officials to now recommend that fully vaccinated people wear masks both indoors and outside.

    Despite the breakthrough instances and the rising number of overall COVID cases across the nation and in Alaska, there are still relatively few new cases, deaths or hospitalizations when compared to earlier this year.

    According to the CDC website, as of July 30, the current seven-day moving average of new cases is 73.8% lower than the peak observed on January 10, 2021. Similarly, the CDC reports that hospitalization rates “remain low when compared to previous months of the pandemic,” and the current 7-day moving average for death rates is “91.8% lower than the peak observed on January 13, 2021.”

    Regardless of lower rates in cases, hospitalizations and deaths, federal, state and local governments are increasingly pressuring, and in some cases demanding, that citizens submit to the experimental COVID shots and then continue wearing masks.

    The new emphasis on masking comes just two months after the CDC said vaccinated citizens were protected and could ditch their masks, which was a major talking point that health bureaucrats used in trying to increase vaccinations.

    1. Sadly… I am wouldnt doubt the deaths are of persons who recieved both covid shots rather than those who declined. Of course! I will never hear the family and friends of those peoples, nor will they put one and one together questioning did the shots contribute to their friend’s death? and how many of those deaths were of people “fully vaccinated?”

      The covid mania is exactly that Crazy-where nothing said adds up logically about it.

      • Not to mention the more than 6,000 people who were vaccinated, thought they were immune, and still died from Covid.

    2. Where is Dumbleavy with edicts restricting Vax passports, mask mandates, and vaz mandates – like the governors in Florida and Texas have done???
      Do Nothin’ Dumbleavy…

      • I would hope we can all agree that the government should not be trampling the rights of private business owners by requiring them to serve those who choose not to be vaccinated.

        Governor Desantis’ efforts to strong-arm businesses is shameful and un-American.

    3. Breakthrough cases are being ascribed to the new Delta variant, according to the CDC. The emerging breakthroughs are leading the CDC and local health officials to now recommend that fully vaccinated people wear masks both indoors and outside.
      .
      What’s the next new variant going to be called. Just like the flu it changes Ever year.
      Lockdowns forever, wear your mask outside how Stupid is that.

    4. No vaccine is perfect. Shingles, influenza, etc. all have break through cases. Given the spread and virility of Covid it makes sense the breakthrough cases would be greater. Add also that many people can get Covid and not know it so why get tested? And if they are vaccinated it would be understandable that milder symptoms would not raise much concern. I’m sure there are many more breakthrough cases than reported just as there are many people simply not getting tested as they are sick enough to not want to go out, but not sick enough to go to the hospital. I get that. I likely would not get tested, I would just stay home. Covid is not proving any more dangerous than influenza but it is more prevalent. Still, the pandemic of Covid ‘hysteria’ has been as bad p, if not worse, as the actual virus and I find that far more disturbing.

        • Neither did Covid kill 600,000!
          CDC says the PCR test cannot differentiate between any Corona virus and the Flu! Just last week!
          The EUA for the PCR test was revoked as of December 31, 2021. Testing labs are instructed to use more definitive tests to be in place by January 1, 2022.
          The CDC also stated most deaths were from pre existing health problems.

        • Because it is misinformation that Covid killed 600,000! The CDC has commented on this. The total extra deaths for 2020 from all causes is only 75,000 over the the total deaths in 2019! It is higher every year historically.

        • Fred, can you point to the study? Last time I checked you only have a .004 chance of dying from Covid. It’s simple math, but I’ll wait while you get a calculator.

          • US population: 330M. US deaths from Covid: 630,000. Odds of death from Covid since start of pandemic: 0.2%

            Typical mortality rate from influenza? It’s an easy calculation. Hint: about 1/20 as many as died from Covid. How often have you seen temporary morgues outside hospitals to store all the dead influenza patients?

        • It must be a miracle that we had hardly a case of influenza last year! Put your thinking cap on Fred, I know that this is hard for you.

    5. The Case has and was BRAVO SIERRA! They admit the PCR test is BRAVO SIERRA and that the “virus” was never isolated or sequenced. So how can you say someone is infected if your test doesn’t work and you don’t know exactly what you are looking for? How can you say there is a variant when you never isolated and sequenced the original? It is all a Psyop to prepare you for the Mark of the Beast.

    7. What test exactly specifically tests for COVID-19? PCR can’t tell the difference between flu, pneumonia or Covid……said the inventor – https://truthinplainsight.com/coronavirus-the-truth-about-pcr-test-kit-from-the-inventor-and-other-experts/

      See CDC lab alert – https://www.cdc.gov/csels/dls/locs/2021/07-21-2021-lab-alert-Changes_CDC_RT-PCR_SARS-CoV-2_Testing_1.html

      See Category (PIC) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covidview/past-reports/01222021.html
      lumps pneumonia, influenza & supposed COVID-19, counts them all as COVID-19.

      The swabs, test strips, PCR all faulty. Yet, the narrative continues? – https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/medical-device-recalls/innova-medical-group-recalls-unauthorized-sars-cov-2-antigen-rapid-qualitative-test-risk-false-test

      Reason for Recall
      Innova Medical Group is recalling its SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Qualitative Test. Labeling distributed with certain configurations of the test includes performance claims that did not accurately reflect the performance estimates observed during the clinical studies of the tests. The performance characteristics of the test have not been adequately established, presenting a risk of false results.

      False-negative results may lead to delayed diagnosis or inappropriate treatment of SARS-CoV-2, which may cause patient harm including serious illness and death. False-negative results can also lead to further spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, including when presumed negative patients are grouped into cohorts in health care, long-term care, and other facilities based on false test results.
      False-positive results could lead to a delay in the correct diagnosis and the initiation of an appropriate treatment for the actual cause of patient illness, which could be another life-threatening disease that is not SARS-CoV-2. False-positive results could also lead to further spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus when presumed positive patients are grouped into cohorts based on false test results.
      Who May Be Affected
      People who were tested using these devices
      Health care providers who may have access to and use these tests or whose patients have used these tests
      Organizers of large testing programs, such as on college campuses, who may be using and distributing these tests for diagnostic use

    8. Bring back the proven treatments. Prosecute Fauci who funded this to begin with. Stay active and take vitamin D and live your life normally. Ive traveled through 4 states twice throughout this entire ordeal with no worries or precautions and have had no issues at all. Covid in itself is not dangerous at all, it’s the way the body reacts to it by the inflammatory response that causes the problem. Control inflammation and the disease is powerless. And furthermore, we aren’t asking the right questions.
      Why were there patents for this vaccine a year before the disease ever appeared?
      Why were malaria drugs removed off the shelves in Washington before the first case in Kirkland?
      Why is Walmart air safer then the air in other businesses during the closures?
      Why was all our money being directed and funnelled to Walmart, Amazon, Costco and large corporations exclusively during the outbreak?
      Why are those with vaccine side effects being censored?
      Why are pregnant women, women of child bearing age and children getting a shot that’s completely untested for those groups, when the shot is ineffective anyway?
      Since when did masks ever stop a viruses?
      Why isn’t big pharma liable for the side effects of their own shots?
      I believe this is completely planned and we are being suppressed and poisoned.

    9. Hey Fred Lee, are you deleting your comments because you don’t have an answer? What bridge do you live under you miserable old troll?

    10. I had covid , it’s real, made in a lab for sure. it’s unnatural feeling. Parasitic. Which is probably why ivermectin helped me. The real question is why are other drugs forbidden ? Oh wait… so there’s an emergency FDA authorization…but no approval….

    11. There were actually only about 20 thousand covid deaths last year. The hospitals marked EVERYTHING as covid so they could get that money and libtards bought right into the lie because they’re not free thinkers. They’re all TV heads. Operation mockingbird is now complete. Operation MK ULTRA is also now complete. Libtards are officially zombies!
