The truth about Covid vaccines not only failing to stop the spread, but actually being a major transmission vehicle for Covid-19, has finally come out in the mainstream press. On Thursday, Bloomberg News pointed to a new study published by the medical journal “The Lancet” that further establishes that vaccinated individuals spread the Delta variant just as much as unvaccinated people do – indeed, slightly faster.
“People inoculated against Covid-19 are just as likely to spread the delta variant of the virus to contacts in their household as those who haven’t had shots, according to new research,” Bloomberg reported.
“In a yearlong study of 621 people in the U.K. with mild Covid-19, scientists found that their peak viral load was similar regardless of vaccination status, according to a paper published Thursday in The Lancet Infectious Diseases medical journal,” the report continued. “The analysis also found that 25% of vaccinated household contacts still contracted the disease from an index case, while 38% of those who hadn’t had shots became infected.”
The Lancet’s study bears a closer look, especially given that it has been a journal known for publishing research used to justify harsh lockdown measures and mandates. It turns out that in the household study cited, the SAR [secondary attack rate] for the vaccinated was recorded as being slightly higher than the unvaccinated.
“SAR among household contacts exposed to fully vaccinated index cases was similar to household contacts exposed to unvaccinated index cases (25% [95% CI 15–35] for vaccinated vs 23% [15–31] for unvaccinated),” the journal said. “12 (39%) of 31 infections in fully vaccinated household contacts arose from fully vaccinated epidemiologically linked index cases, further confirmed by genomic and virological analysis in three index case–contact pairs.”
It should be noted that there was a 95% confidence interval for the data, meaning that more research into the findings is warranted. There was also further confirmation that the viral loads (an indicator used to assess infection) did not differ between the vaccinated and unvaccinated, regardless of variant type.
“Although peak viral load did not differ by vaccination status or variant type, it increased modestly with age (difference of 0·39 [95% credible interval –0·03 to 0·79] in peak log10 viral load per mL between those aged 10 years and 50 years),” the publication continued. “Fully vaccinated individuals with delta variant infection had a faster (posterior probability >0·84) mean rate of viral load decline (0·95 log10 copies per mL per day) than did unvaccinated individuals with pre-alpha (0·69), alpha (0·82), or delta (0·79) variant infections. Within individuals, faster viral load growth was correlated with higher peak viral load (correlation 0·42 [95% credible interval 0·13 to 0·65]) and slower decline (–0·44 [–0·67 to –0·18]).”
The Lancet’s findings are quite remarkable and fly in the face of the ‘science’ that has been sold to the world for nearly a year about vaccines stopping the spread of Covid-19, which has been a key selling point in vaccine mandates.
The peer-reviewed scientific journal finally fessed up about something this publication pointed out in September: Vaccines are not stopping the spread, and indeed, are a significant vector in the transmission of Covid-19.
In September, Becker News raised the high likelihood that vaccinations were fueling Delta transmission. On Wednesday, we reported that Covid case rates were found to be higher among the vaccinated than the unvaccinated according to the latest U.K. data.
“The rate of a positive COVID-19 test is substantially lower in vaccinated individuals compared to unvaccinated individuals up to the age of 29,” Public Health England’s latest report notes. “In individuals aged greater than 30, the rate of a positive COVID-19 test is higher in vaccinated individuals compared to unvaccinated.”
“This is likely to be due to a variety of reasons, including differences in the population of vaccinated and unvaccinated people as well as differences in testing patterns,” the report added.
The adjusted data showed that there were more Covid-19 ‘cases’ per 100,000 in the vaccinated group than in the unvaccinated group for persons over age 30 years old.
Public Health England put the significance of these findings into clear language.
“Although individuals may not develop symptoms of COVID-19 after vaccination, it is possible that they could still be infected with the virus and could transmit to others,” Public Health England says outright. “Understanding how effective vaccines are at preventing infection is therefore important to predict the likely impact of the vaccination programme on the wider population.”
Elected leaders and public health officials have been relying on the false notion that vaccines stop the spread to sell their unlawful vaccine mandates. Joe Biden delivered an address on Covid-19 in early October that touted the debunked claim that vaccines ‘stop the spread’ to purportedly justify his Covid mandates.
“We’re making sure healthcare workers are vaccinated because if you seek care at a healthcare facility, you should have the certainty that the people providing that care are protected from COVID and cannot spread it to you,” Biden claimed.
The Biden administration nonetheless continues to mislead the public about vaccines stopping the spread. This debunked line is even being used to justify vaccinating children as young as 5 years old. The administration is also ignoring the real effectiveness of natural immunity in protecting Americans previously infected with Covid.
The CDC’s own figures estimate that at least 120 million Americans had been infected with Covid-19 by the end of May, thus possessing natural immunity. That figure can be projected to be at least 160 million currently, due to the Delta variant wave and the CDC’s estimate that there have been four infections for every case reported.
Thus, what the actual Covid and vaccination data establish is that the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” phrase has been officially exposed as a media-generated myth. Covid poses unique risks to individuals based on a number of health factors, including age, obesity, and underlying health conditions, as well as prior infection and an individual’s possession of effective antibodies.
Therefore, whether or not an individual gets vaccinated for Covid should be left up to a doctor and a patient, which is consistent with generally accepted medical ethics regarding the patient’s right to bodily autonomy. Vaccinations remain a personal health decision and there is no ‘public health’ justification for vaccine mandates.
