But vaccines are pretty effective.
People get very worried when they look at the UK data and immediately say opening up is far too dangerous when they see this.
Cases are at ~ 75% of January's peak.The sky is falling.
But you need the whole picture.Hospitalisations.
But hospitalisations are only 25% of the January peak.
Deaths are 10% of January's peak.
Now as to the cases the highest percentages are in ages 6-11 then 12-15.Now 6-11s have not been vaccinated and vaccinations in 12-15 are ~ 50%.On top of that in the UK many in the 12-15 group have had only 1 shot of an mRNA vaccine due to worry about Myocarditis.

Right now, the rate of Covid infection in children aged six to 11 is twice the UK national average, according to data from the Office For National Statistics.
Add to that the fact that in the UK there is virtually mandated testing regularly of school children.
And in adults most infections are in the unvaccinated and those with 1 jab.
Almost half of UK COVID infections are in people who are at least partly vaccinated, study suggests. But the cases were much milder.
Cases among vaccinated people could soon overtake cases among unvaccinated, according to data presented by the UK's ZOE COVID Symptom Study.
