You know what would be a really interesting number, number of infected by classification (red, green so on) vaccinated vs unvaccinated. 

Would say at this point for Phuket it is probably the most important number of all due to the concerns over sinovac and find it concerning its the one piece of info that's missing from these reports

I wonder how many new cases and the unfortunate deaths are with people who have been vaccinated. Seems important to know this statistic.
