That was the number as of June 23, 2021.  The number is much higher now.  Nice try.
And downplaying it as mild is straight up lunacy.  There is nothing mild about a heart condition like that.  Will you also discount the "mild" cases of covid - which applies to 99% of covid cases who have "mild symptoms and fully recover"?  Why not?
Why are covid truthers so dishonest with their statistics?

Around 80% of covid cases are mild, which means rest and paracetamol at home, yes I will discount those, the other 20% of serious cases are the issue here.
Most Myocarditis cases cleared up in days with no lasting effects, it's not a dangerous heart condition, it's a rare mild side effect. The common cold can cause similar symptoms.

I am not vaxxed, but not an anti-vaxxer. I believe in personal choice and responsibility. But I am anti-mandate. The whole mantra of "No jab-no more job" is a crock of shiatsu. My daughter who is 15 h

What's disturbing to me is the portrayal of people who object to mandates as being "anti-vax". Honestly, the number of people who are truly "anti-vax" is pretty insignificant. I don't know of any. I g

People need to be careful with stats found on websites, yes even the cdc or who.  Whether it’s supporting vaccines or supporting the antivaxxers is no different.  Both camps are full of confirmation bias statistics. Pick a side and there’s a statistic to support you.  I’m exhausted by all of it where I stopped talking about it or to people who want to talk about it, on both sides of the issue. Fact is we don’t know for sure, it’s all educated guesses with stats and lessons looking in the rear view mirror.  Do what you feel is best for your family and buckle up for a long ride cause this is not going anywhere any time soon.  Chances are you’ll be fine, but sadly, not everyone will.

I’m vaccinated, my family is vaccinated, my wife and young son.  I chose that not based on any statistic, but information and the opinion from my brother who leads one of the largest health systems in the state, on what he’s seen in his hospitals as far as hospitalizations, deaths from Covid, and reactions to the vaccine.  For me it was a no brainer, but not everyone has access to a trusted source like me, so I blame no one for their stance if they choose not to vax.  I just wish everyone the best of luck, health, happiness, and I’ve moved on with my life to focus on what I can control instead of what I can’t.  Cheers fellas.

99% of NHL players are vaccinated, so it's likely that everyone on the Ottawa Senators was vaccinated.  Now they are postponing games because of an outbreak.

Multiple NFL coaches have missed game as a result of contracting covid.  100% of NFL coaches are vaccinated.

Let's not even talk about the ridiculous amounts of healthy young people and athletes suddenly suffering from myocarditis.  Serious and life threatening heart inflammation that is a result of the vaccine.

Soon you will need a third shot to be considered "fully vaccinated" because, it turns out, the vaccine is not anywhere close to as effective as we were initially misled to believe.

Yeah, the vaccine totally works you guys!!!  Perfectly safe and effective!  :clown2::clown2::clown2:

The Blue Jackets (team I followed) released an assistant coach and two players who refused to vax up. Easy to get 99% when you fire those who refuse….

I contracted Myocarditis as a 24 year old and it has had long lasting affects on my health. My heart is slightly enlarged to this day. 

I contracted mine as a result of a virus. 


I always knew you had a big heart, but I thought it was figurative...

  I wanted to just pick up on this on a casual basis, I'm not going to trawl through the papers to give the specific data but it's there if it's of interest to you.

  The issue revolves around viral load, the vaccines reduce the viral load in a vaccinated person. The body is primed for a fight against the virus, so when it is infected the virus doesn't get the chance to replicate as much; it's being fought right away, hence a reduced viral load. In someone unvaccinated there is a length of time for the body to gear up into fighting-mode, this time is used by the virus to multiply and spread throughout the body. The result of a lower viral load is milder symptoms; essentially removing the risk of severe disease and death in all but the most frail.

  With the reduced viral load from the vaccines comes the reduced amount of viral particles that an infected person has at their disposal to spread. That's where the reduction of transmission comes from. With less viral matter being spread from an infected person, anyone coming into contact with them is also getting infected with a smaller amount meaning their experience will be more mild (Someone infected with a higher initial viral load has more chance of their immune system being overloaded faster.) so it works both ways and in a vaccinated population the amount of viral matter will decrease as more and more time goes by and this effect snowballs

 Off the top of my head the reduction of viral load from being vaccinated I think is something around 40%, combining that with ventilation, social distancing and masks are all part of the exit strategy for this.

  Reduced viral load is the key to stop the virus overwhelming someone's body and killing them, there's just a happy coincidence that it also reduces spread as a by-product

This is a gross oversimplification bordering on misinformation.

I was careful not to deal with this case, of vaccinated person with covid vs. unvaccinated person with covid. (these articles show that viral load is similar between vaccinated and unvaccinated, symptom and no symptom when the person has covid).

However what we can say with relative certainty though is that a vaccinated person is less likely to test positive for covid. And in that case we can definitely say there is less viral load. As the viral load being past a certain threshold is what triggers a positive test.

So as I said the vaccines would reduce transmission not by making people with covid less infectious, but by reducing the number of people with covid.

I'm vaccinated. My wife is not. 

I find it very difficult to have a discussion on anything related. We can't do virtually anything anymore, as vax status is required to go anywhere indoors, to any event, virtually to do anything. 

If you aren't having an issue, I suspect where you live it isn't as restrictive to be non vaxxed?

San Francisco, where you need to be vaccinated to fart.  

I just thought not bringing my gf anywhere was an added bonus ?  🤨
