Vaccinated people do not have “a 885% more likelihood of dying” due to the delta variant that unvaccinated ones

An article claiming “that people who have received two doses of the vaccine against covid-19 has a 885,7% more likely to die due to the delta variant than those unvaccinated” is circulating on WhatsApp. This is a MISLEADING datum. First, it would actually be 862.5%, but in any case the text is not taking into account what is the probability of dying in vaccinated age groups, which are also the oldest age groups, compared to those who are not, which are overwhelmingly young people.
