Cancer patients die 84% less from COVID-19 after received COVID-19 vaccines.

In the first panorama study of its kind, COVID-related hospitalizations and deaths among cancer patients fell substantially following the introduction of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Published on July 25 in Scientific Reports, the study examines the impact of the global pandemic on case incidence in cancer patients over the 21-month period November 2020 to August 2022 .

 

The University of Birmingham-led team found that hospital admissions fell from nearly one-third of patients (30.58%) to one-third of patients (7.45%) during this period; patients (20.53%) dropped to less than one-thirtieth of patients (3.25%).

The study also found that among cancer patients, age was a better predictor of mortality than cancer type.

In 2022, the case fatality rate for patients over the age of 80 is more than one in ten (10.32%), while that for patients under the age of 80 is less than one in 35 (2.83%).

 

Compared with the general population, COVID-19 infection more than doubled the likelihood of hospitalization (2.1 times) or unfortunate death (2.54 times) in cancer patients by the end of the study period.

 

Dr Leonard Lee, from the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Cancer and Genome Sciences and lead author of the study, said: “Cancer patients worry that their bodies will be infected by the virus, and even more that they have been forgotten. Our work shows , the UK is coming out of the tunnel of a global pandemic, and we know who remains most at risk of the consequences of contracting COVID-19 so they are not left behind. This data is undoubtedly good news for cancer patients, but despite the Hospitalization and death rates have declined significantly over the years we studied, and we can still see additional risks.”

 

Thomas Starkey, a PhD researcher at the University of Birmingham and lead author of the study, said:

“By collating and analyzing electronic healthcare data to assess the actual impact of the global pandemic in the UK, we can now use population-scale data to protect cancer patients from infectious diseases such as COVID-19.”
