  1. Ok, so looking at the dashboard 270 cases, only 20 are hospitalized, 1,338 recovered cases and 43 deaths. We were given a breakdown of how many persons infected are with and without the vaccine. It was said that both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons have contracted the virus with more unvaccinated persons having it. Now it shows that the vaccine dose not stop you from getting covid. If the recovered cases are that high compare to death its clearly showing that more unvaccinated persons are recovering from the virus if most affected are unvaccinated.

    Why was there never given a breakdown of the death total as to how many of them had the vaccine or not. I you look closely at the dashboard they are only giving you three tips to protect yourself and the vaccine is surely not one of them.
