Covid, the trap of the unvaccinated OR the problem of the poorly immune (mainly people over 65)???

Axios notes:

Alaska has the country's biggest COVID outbreak, with 310 cases per 100,000 people. Most states are still well above 100 cases per 100,000 people. So there's still a long way to go. But that improvement is happening quickly. Yes, but: Deaths are still on the rise. The virus is killing roughly 2,600 Americans per day, on average. That's a function of two things: Deaths are always the last number to move, in any wave, and so it makes sense for Omicron deaths to be accumulating now. But those deaths were almost entirely preventable. The overwhelming majority of people dying from COVID were unvaccinated. The risk of dying from COVID is 60 times higher for unvaccinated people than it is for people who are vaccinated and boosted, according to the CDC's most recent data.


The cite to "overwhelming"

is to data through EARLY December 2021, long BEFORE the dramatic increase in Covid death rate:
