Small fraction of COVID positive vaccinated New Yorkers

Small fraction of COVID positive vaccinated New Yorkers

More than 1,000 people a day are now testing positive in New York, based on the latest seven-day average, according to AP’s analysis of state data. Still, health officials are urging the public to get vaccinated at a time when the highly contagious delta variant is spreading and hospitalizations and infections are on the rise. That’s up from a pandemic low of 306 per day on June 25.

“We are continuing to investigate the number of fully vaccinated people who may have been hospitalized or passed away,” Barker said. State health officials didn’t immediately provide Tuesday the date of New York’s first breakthrough case, or an estimate of how many of those people were hospitalized or died.

No vaccine is perfect, meaning fully vaccinated people occasionally will get infected. And so-called “breakthrough cases” usually are mild, according to health experts. That’s out of the nearly 11 million New York residents who are fully vaccinated. And it’s also a fraction of the 244,000 people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in New York since April 1.

Hospitals reported 424 COVID-19 patients as of Monday, up 22% from 349 as of July 12. New York City alone is up to 228 patients, up 38% from 165 a week earlier. Counties including Nassau and Erie are also seeing upticks in hospitalizations. Still, hospitalization and infection rates are far below this winter: In January alone, over 9,000 patients were hospitalized at once at one point while nearly 14,000 people were testing positive each day. And hospitalizations are showing signs of an uptick, after plateauing at around 350 residents for much of July.

Counties statewide are seeing surges, with most new infections in densely populated New York and its surrounding suburbs on Long Island and in suburbs north of the city. New York has seen a spike of new infections in July — a stark contrast to the steady drop from April through June.
