You have no fucking clue what you are posting and take everything out of context. Pants-of-dog has already proven one of your links to say the complete opposite of what you said.

No. That's another lie. They are not getting really sick.
In fact, the reality says differently than your foolish rants.PHE data suggests that being double vaccinated reduces the risk of being hospitalised with the now-dominant delta variant by around 96%. Even conservatively assuming the vaccines are no more effective at preventing death than hospitalisation (actually they are likely to be more effective at preventing death) this means the risk of death for double vaccinated people has been cut to less than one-twentieth of the value for unvaccinated people with the same underlying risk profile.
However, the 20-fold decrease in risk afforded by the vaccine isn’t enough to offset the 32-fold increase in underlying risk of death of an 70-year-old over a 35-year-old. Given the same risk of infection, we would still expect to see more double-vaccinated 70-year-olds die from COVID than unvaccinated 35-year-olds. There are caveats to that simple calculation. The risk of infection is not the same for all age groups. Currently, infections are highest in the youngest and lower in older age groups.https://theconversation.com/most-covid- ... you-163671
So keep saying stupid and foolish things, Igor. It becomes you.
@Pants-of-dog Nothing Igor says turns out to be true. Heck, you even used his last source to show how wrong he was.
