According to health authorities, the number of COVID-19 cases among Americans who have been completely vaccinated against the virus that causes it has risen to over 7,100.
States submit so-called breakthrough cases to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which then publishes the numbers.

The CDC announced in a new update that 7,157 people who had been completely vaccinated against the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19, had still contracted the disease.
Women accounted for 64 percent of the breakthrough events, while men and women aged 60 and older accounted for 46 percent.
Despite being completely vaccinated, nearly 500 people who contracted COVID-19 needed hospitalization, but about a third of their illnesses were considered unrelated to COVID-19. Eighty-eight of the breakthrough patients died, accounting for 1% of the total. Eleven of the deaths were said to be unrelated to the disease or to have shown no symptoms.
The cases’ state-by-state breakdown is not made public.
On April 15, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the first case numbers. There are 1,343 such cases in the latest update. The latest estimates are for the period of April 20 to April 20. A spokeswoman for the CDC told The Epoch Times via email that the numbers would be updated every Friday.

Since the existing framework depends on state health departments’ voluntary reporting, there could be more breakthrough events than the CDC reports.
Over 91 million Americans have been completely vaccinated against the CCP virus as of April 23.
An individual who has received their second Moderna or Pfizer injection, or their single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, two or more weeks prior is considered fully vaccinated.
Because none of the vaccinations offer complete immunity, health authorities and experts agree the new cases don’t cause for alarm.
“While there are breakthrough events, which are not unexpected, they are extremely rare and do not negate the importance of mass vaccination. Furthermore, the breakthrough cases are all less serious, demonstrating the advantages of even rudimentary immunity,” said S. Mark Tompkins, an infectious disease professor at the University of Georgia, in an email to The Epoch Times.
According to a spokeswoman for the CDC, thousands of breakthrough cases are expected. “Vaccine breakthrough outbreaks affect only a small number of completely vaccinated individuals. All qualified people should get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as one becomes available, according to the CDC.
People who have been completely vaccinated should continue to take precautions in public areas, such as wearing a mask, standing at least 6 feet apart from others, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated environments, and washing their hands often, according to the CDC.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is looking for clustering of confirmed breakthrough cases based on demographics, geographic area, period since vaccination, vaccine type, and virus lineage. It intends to concentrate its efforts in the near future on only reviewing cases that result in hospitalization or death.
