I previously reported information about hospitalizations and deaths in vaccinated people was not available for Illinois. https://blnnews.com/2021/09/23/idph-foia-covid-data/
Now it is, but it is deceptively reported by IDPH. https://dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccine/vaccine-breakthrough.html
The bottom of the page has CUMULATIVE numbers of hospitalizations and deaths in COVID vaccinated people. Who cares about cumulative? I don’t.
I download their CVS file and added two columns (see highlighted) so the TREND per week can be seen:
THEIR data shows the rate of hospitalizations and deaths in fully vaccinated individuals began accelerating in August. Why? A better question to ask is why they presented cumulative numbers instead of weekly. Are they afraid to show the truth?
The below is on the same page, the percentages are still small. The question is: For how long?
