Why More Fully Vaccinated People Are Dying From COVID Than The Unvaccinated

Based on recent data updated on COVIDNow, we are seeing more fully vaccinated people than unvaccinated people dying from COVID-19 in the daily reported deaths due to the disease. But those numbers alone don’t tell the full story. Prof Dr Sanjay Rampal, epidemiologist from Universiti Malaya joins us to put these numbers into context and discuss whether it’s realistic for us to expect zero deaths as the total number of deaths from COVID-19 surpases the 30,000 mark in the country.
