She added that the number of fully vaccinated people testing positive for the virus in hospitals rose from 7% on Sunday to 10% on Tuesday.

However, although the cases are increasing, fully vaccinated people who are being hospitalised for Covid-19 are exhibiting mild symtoms and are not becoming as sick.

It has also been noted that not everyone who is being hospitalised with Covid-19 is being treated for the virus as their admission may have been for other reasons and they happened to test positive for Covid-19.
