Some 75% of people who got infected with Covid-19 in Singapore recently had been previously inoculated. None of them, however, got seriously ill, the health authorities said, encouraging further vaccinations.

In the last 28 days, 1,096 locally transmitted cases were detected in the country, freshly released statistics show. Some 48% of those who fell ill had been fully vaccinated, while a further 30% received only one shot of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The rest of those who contracted coronavirus had not received any jabs at all. The fresh statistics reinforce the idea that, if not preventing the disease entirely, vaccination significantly lowers the chances of people becoming critically ill. (RT)
