Our recent clinical audit data analysis on the “breakthrough deaths” showed that among the overall 12,993 deaths recorded, 80 cases had been partially vaccinated (0.6%) and 4 cases had full vaccination (0.03%).— Noor Hisham Abdullah (@DGHisham) August 18, 2021
Since Mid-July the number of daily Covid-19 Deaths in Malaysia reaching three digits became a common sight and across the country, the fatality rate for Covid-19 is about 0.91%.
So far, the highest number of Covid-19 deaths in a day was recorded on 8 August with 360 cases.
Yesterday (17 August) recorded 293 Dovid-19 deaths bringing the number up to 13,077.
This is despite the drop in the number of covid-19 patients that need hospitalisation.
None of these data, in any way, suggests that you should not get vaccinated. In fact it proves that vaccination is effective. So please, get vaccinated.
