Re "Oh Ya" and their comment - given the very high percentage of the population vaccinated in Israel, this means that (in terms of proportion) the majority of those in hospital will be those who are vaccinated. This will be the same if or when the bulk of the Panamanian population is vaccinated. You can still catch and spread the virus (especially the Delta version) when vaccinated, but are less likely to face severe symptoms or death. In addition, the total number of hospitalised cases should be considerably lower
