If you’re like me, you’re tired of the left’s constant call to “science” while they continue to ignore the wealth of data and evidence that their COVID-19 restrictions are not only unnecessary but, in some cases, more detrimental in their effect than had they done nothing. This follows my piece from a few days ago, where I showed we knew the target population a year ago derived from the data from the Diamond Princess.
Now, it appears that Joe Biden’s begging for the continuance for mask mandates for the vaccinated, but this is counter to the data and evidence coming from his own CDC officials.
After warning for months that vaccinated people should still be cautious in order to not infect others, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests they may not be at much risk of transmitting the coronavirus.
“Vaccinated people do not carry the virus — they don’t get sick,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday. That’s “not just in the clinical trials, but it’s also in real-world data.”
Walensky was referring to a new CDC study that suggests those fully inoculated with the vaccines produced by Moderna and Pfizer don’t transmit the virus. Researchers looked at how the shots protected nearly 4,000 health-care workers, first responders, and other essential workers toiling in eight U.S. locations against the virus and more-contagious variants. Following a single dose of either vaccine, the participants’ risk of infection was reduced by 80 percent, and that figure jumped to 90 percent after the second dose. Without infection, people are unable to spread the virus. The results are similar to what scientists saw in clinical trials for the vaccines, which found that two doses of either two-dose vaccine had an efficacy rate of around 95 percent.
