The long goodbye to covid-19 | The Economist

“In Britain, where Delta is dominant, the fatality rate if you become infected is now about 0.1%, similar to seasonal flu: a danger, but a manageable one.”

The unseen covid-19 risk for unvaccinated people

By Dan Keating and Leslie Shapiro

This story was published a few weeks ago but remains incredibly important as the delta variant spreads throughout the U.S.

The country’s declining covid-19 case rates present an unrealistically optimistic perspective for half of the nation — the half that is still not vaccinated.

As more people receive vaccines, covid-19 cases are occurring mostly in the increasingly narrow slice of the unprotected population. So The Washington Post adjusted its case, death and hospitalization rates to account for that — and found that in some places, the virus continues to rage among those who haven’t received a shot.
