Massachusetts coronavirus breakthrough situations drop for the 2nd straight…

More than 3,700 fully vaccinated people in Massachusetts tested positive for the coronavirus last week, a daily average of about 534 people as the rate of breakthrough infections dropped for the second straight week.

The count of 3,741 breakthrough situations was down from 4,378 breakthrough infections in the prior week. The week before that was 4,568 situations.

Breakthrough situations in Massachusetts have been making up about 35% of the state’s overall situations amid the more highly contagious delta variant. People who are unvaccinated are at a higher risk for infection and a harsh case.

Overall, 40,464 fully vaxxed people have tested positive for the virus, according to new data from the state Department of Public Health on Tuesday. That’s 0.87% of the more than 4.6 million fully vaxxed people in Massachusetts.

The more than 40,000 overall situations is a jump of 3,741 breakthrough infections from last week — or a daily average of 534 fully vaccinated people testing positive.

Last Tuesday’s report showed an increase of 4,378 breakthrough situations, a daily rate of 625 fully vaxxed people testing positive.

The week before that was a rise of 4,568 breakthrough situations, a daily average of 653 fully vaxxed people testing positive.
