Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My earlier comment:

RIVM Dutch stats Infections at a very low rate and limited to young age group.

On vaccinations, the EU-27 countries are likely in better shape than the UK or USA. Lower number of anti-vaxxers helps. Group of age 18+ number of full vaccination is 75% and 85% with single jab. Due to delay in start and delivery of vaccines, protection will last through fall to end of year. Booster shots will be available for the most vulnerable.

In addition, there's likely an overlap due to protection of 1,9 million COVID-19 cases.

Hospital Survey

The vaccination status of 320 of the 370 COVID-19 patients admitted to hospital in the week from 12 July to 18 July, is known. Almost three quarters (74%) of the COVID-19 patients in the sample were unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated. 15% of the patients had been fully vaccinated, but that includes the 5% who were known to have a weak immune system, for example due to an immune disorder or the use of medication that weakens the immune system. For 11% of the COVID-19 patients insufficient data was available.
