BarryJV: Khellendros: I don't know if we have any data yet on whether these Covid vaccines have an effect on severity yet.

The new vaccine reduced severity in all cases (there were no serious cases or hospitalisations) even when it didn't prevent infection. It is a pretty effective "no one dies" vaccine.

Since we only had 8 cases (of the 170) that were on the vaccine, I don't know that this is a large enough pool to know if it affects severity.  Statistically, we wouldn't have expected a hospitalization in that low number of cases.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: BarryJV: I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: How they're getting an average of 70% out of 90% and 62% is unknown, it may be the overall average and there were more candidates in one dosing regime than the other, but a straight average is 76%.

The number reported on UK radio this morning was 76% - I think this article is rounding too much

And rounding incorrectly, 76% would round to 80%.

Could be a weighted average - I haven't seen a specific account of how many individuals fell under each regimen.
