Around 20 - 25% of all infections in Ontario, Canada, are in the fully vaccinated. That's expected since we're at 80% fully vaccinated.

Here's my take on the maths:

Suppose you have 2 people, 1 vaccinated, 1 unvaccinated. Suppose they do everything together, even get exposed to COVID together. If the unvaccinated fell ill in a given situation, the vaccinated has only a 5% chance of falling ill in that same situation.

Now suppose you have a random collection of people, 80% vaccinated, getting exposed in a way that would lead them to falling ill. 5% of vaccinated would fall ill in that scenario. If 80% of them are vaccinated then 4 times the number of vaccinated vs unvaccinated will fall ill, ie 20% of the infected group who fall ill will be vaccinated.

So our numbers, while they seem scary, are a mathematical inevitability and show the vaccines work about 95% of the time, and that break through infections occur at the rate one would expect.

The real numbers are how many fully vaccinated people with no underlying health conditions end up in the ICU. That number is very, very small.

I'm still, however, waiting for the 5G chip in my vaccine to kick in. Maybe I need to upgrade the drivers, or maybe it's that 5G in Canada is still a dodgy proposition in many places.
