Chen Xiuxi: Prevention of co-morbidity and death and long-term novel corona vaccine have other benefits | The latest epidemic tent |

Chen Xiuxi, a professor at the National Taiwan University School of Public Health, said today that the internationalCOVID 19Vaccination has stagnated, and more and more people are choosing not to be vaccinated. However, the academic circles have found that, in addition to increasing immune protection, vaccines still have other advantages in terms of protection against comorbidities and death from new crowns.

Chen Xiuxi led the research team today, through “Coronavirus diseaseEpidemic Prevention Science Online Live” analyzes the trend of the international epidemic of COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019). He mentioned that as COVID-19 gradually became a “flu”, people in all countries neglected vaccination. Currently, the cumulative administration rate of supplemental doses in the world has stagnated at around 34%, entering a “flat phase”.

Chen Xiuxi believes that vulnerable groups and people who have the opportunity to come into contact with the elderly should still consider vaccination. He mentioned that the deaths caused by COVID-19 include direct deaths caused by severe illness and comorbid deaths caused by complications after infection. The study found that the effectiveness of vaccines in reducing co-morbidity deaths is 47% for all age groups, and the effect is as high as 71% for the elderly group over 65 years of age.

Inadequate medical energy during the epidemic can also lead to the indirect death of asymptomatic or uninfected people. The research team estimated that the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine in reducing indirect deaths was 41%.

In addition, chronic sequelae can develop after infection with COVID-19, that is, Long COVID. Citing international research, Chen Xiuxi pointed out that vaccination with the basic dose of the vaccine can reduce the risk of developing a new crown by 51%, and the supplementary dose can reduce the risk of developing a new crown by 70%. Studies have shown that the risk of pulmonary embolism, arrhythmia, and ischemic stroke among patients with COVID-19 is much higher than the risk of uninfected groups, which is worth noting.

Chen Xiuxi said that the economy is gradually improving in the “post-epidemic period” The governments of various countries are concerned about the issue of vulnerable groups returning to the workplace. They suggest that precise vaccines should be administered to prevent subsequent unemployment and economic distress caused by disability.
