I actually don't know how that cycle threshold rule even works in practice. My wife gets tested somewhat frequently as required since she isn't vaccinated. Says they never once asked her whether she is vaccinated or not. I think the rules might affect inpatient testing decisions, including who they test when there aren't symptoms. But I actually don't think they even have a very good system of knowing who is vaccinated, or ask about it in any systematic way.

So according to the leaked presentation 10 percent of hospitalizations and 15 percent of deaths were among the fully vaccinated in May which is a sharp jump from the previous month. Heck: fully vaccinated were 1.7 percent of deaths in February and the full vaccination rate that month went from 1.5 percent to about 7 percent and most of the deaths were in the early part of that month.

Probably yes, well over 10 percent vaccinated now. But a lot of the earlier jump happened at the same time as vaccination rates also jumped and the implied efficacy actually probably increased a lot in March and April compared to February before falling again in May.

Either way completely puts to rest claims about 99 percent
