The global crisis is a battle of the unvaccinated

The race for a COVID-19 vaccine became the number one priority for every major world leader at the start of the pandemic. And for the first time centuries, the world was united against a common foe, the Coronavirus. However, with the development of various COVID-19 vaccines, fully inoculated people are still getting infected and dying from the virus.
“A likely scenario is that there will likely be a need for a third dose, somewhere between six and 12 months and then from there, there will be annual revaccination, but all of that needs to be confirmed. And again, the variants will play a key role.” Said Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla in an interview with CNBC’s Bertha Coombs
Yet, with the continuous outbreak of the mutant “Delta” of the new coronavirus in Britain, nearly half of the recent deaths recorded in the country are due to people who got vaccinated against COVID-19. According to public health data in Britain, 117 deaths were recorded due to the mutant “Delta” and “The Wall Street Journal” confirmed that 46% of those deaths refer to people who had taken two doses of the vaccine.
Furthermore, Israel records the highest number of two doses of vaccination with 5 million people, while there are 3 million people who had taken three doses. On the other hand, Israel now records the highest infection rates with nearly 650 new cases daily per million people.
So what does this mean? Based on scientific data, vaccines work but does not prevent a fully vaccinated person from catching COVID-19. It shows unvaccinated people are the major risk to those that are vaccinated.
