Our SNP mouthpieces claim that the current record rates of infection in Scotland are because we had so few cases up till now. That’s nonsense.
This table shows the numbers of cases of Covid, numbers with at least one vaccination and the ratio between that total and the number protected by infection. Obviously many of those previously infected have also been vaccinated but there’s no reason to think that affects any part of the UK differently from another.
In Scotland 5.4% of those with some protection have it from being infected, in England the figure is 7.6% – That’s a difference of just 2.2%.
Scotland’s case rate is almost double that of England, three times that of Northern Ireland and four times the Welsh rate. There is no correlation between the numbers of previous infections and the current case rate.
