COVID-19 infections are occurring at a rate of one out of every four in Los Angeles, according to health experts.
Fox11 stated that Los Angeles Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer noted that around 26 percent of the cases diagnosed between July 1 and July 16 were persons who had been vaccinated against the virus.
During a meeting of the County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Ferrer warned that as more people are vaccinated the number of completely vaccinated people who become infected would grow.
They represent a rise from June when those who had been completely vaccinated accounted for 20 percent of the county's cases.
Hospitalizations among individuals who have received the vaccine, according to Ferrer, are extremely rare, accounting for less than 0.01 percent of all admissions.
"Vaccinated people are hospitalized at a rate of less than 1/10 of 1 per 100,000 people," Ferrer added.
As a result, we are more certain that the vaccinations are functioning as intended in Los Angeles County, he said. Even while the number of new COVID diagnoses is on the rise among vaccinated persons, they are mostly suffering from a terrible cold," she said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced new guidelines for persons in viral hot areas to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status, at the same time as the so-called breakthrough infections among vaccinated people.
As a result of the CDC's advice, Los Angeles County issued its own indoor mask mandate to combat the virus's growing case counts, which were primarily the result of persons who were unvaccinated against the disease.
