The new Italian study shows that people vaccinated against Covid 19 are highly unlikely to die of the disease unless very old and already badly ill before getting it. The average age of death among those not vaccinated was 78, with four pre-existing conditions.
The Cases of heart problems, dementia and cancer were all found to be higher in the sample of deaths among those vaccinated.The study by the national Health Institute (ISS), contained in a regular ISS report on Covid 19 deaths, shows the average age of people who died despite being vaccinated was 85. On average they had five underlying illnesses.The analysis, carried out from Feb. 1 to Oct. 5 this year, studied the medical records of 671 unvaccinated Covid 19 fatalities and 171 fully vaccinated ones.There were 38,096 Covid 19 deaths in Italy during the period under review.
The government made Covid 19 health passes mandatory for all workers, in a test case for Europe. The move has sometimes triggered violent protests in several cities, including the capital Rome.
