Non-vaccinated corona patients who are infected by the delta variant have a three times higher risk of being admitted to the hospital, a Danish study shows.
The risk of hospitalization after infection with the delta variant is 201% greater than the risk of hospitalization after infection with the alpha variant, according to a study by the Danish Institute of Public Health – the Statens Serum Institut (SSI), Aalborg University, and the Danish COVID-19 Genome Consortium.
The study has been published in the journal The Lancet. The study shows how important it is to be vaccinated, the SSI pointed out.
Multiple studies from other countries have shown similar results, with the exception of a Norwegian study that has not been able to demonstrate an increased risk of admission with the delta variant.
