Surat: Only 2.68% of +ve cases hospitalized – ET HealthWorld

Surat: Out of total 112 Covid-19 patients hospitalised in the last three months, only 10 were unvaccinated while 94 were fully vaccinated and eight were partially vaccinated.

Explaining the figures, health officials of Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) claimed that over 34 lakh people have been vaccinated in the city, so among the hospitalised the number of vaccinated people will be higher.

In October last year, Surat city achieved 100% vaccination for the first dose. Since then, one death due to Covid-19 was reported that too in December.

However, the vaccination has drastically improved the overall hospitalisation of nearly 2.68% on Thursday which used to remain over 10% in the first two waves. Out of 3,054 active cases on Thursday, 82 are hospitalised.

“In the first two waves, nearly 10% required hospitalisation. But due to vaccination, the hospitalisation is nearly 2.68% today,” said an SMC health official.

“Since we have covered over 34 lakh population, the majority of patients who will be hospitalised are vaccinated. Of course, their health condition would not become critical like in the past two waves,” said a health official.

According to Cowin data, 73 lakh doses have been administered to beneficiaries till now, of which 41 lakh got the first dose while 32 lakh got both doses.

Of the total doses, 50 lakh doses were given to the 18-44 age group and 15 lakh doses to 45-60 age group. In the above 60 age group, 6 lakh doses were given while in the 15-18 age group 1 lakh doses were administered.
