Whenever there’s a study released that aligns with COVID Safeism it’s publicized far and wide on liberal media outlets and blue checkmark Twitter. It’s rare that either of these parties will be vocal about recent studies that don’t align with their school of thought. Studies suggesting natural immunity provides ample protection against COVID infection, or that lockdowns have consequences, are scant mentioned. Uttering a word that such literature exists or that their findings might deserve a glance will anathematize you.
Here are the studies the media-blob doesn’t want you to see.
Published earlier this year and though still pending peer-review, an Israel study suggests unvaccinated people with prior COVID exposure have better and longer protection against COVID-19 infection than those who are vaccinated. In their study titled “Comparing SARS-CoV-2 natural immunity to vaccine-induced immunity: reinfections versus breakthrough infections” the authors retroactively analyzed thousands of medical records of Israeli citizens. They produced multiple statistical models comparing breakthrough infections, symptoms, and severity between the two groups. The results are shocking: “SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees had a 13.06-fold (95% CI, 8.08 to 21.11) increased risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to those previously infected, when the first event (infection or vaccination) occurred during January and February of 2021. The increased risk was significant (P<0.001) for symptomatic disease as well.” Statistical jargon aside: They found vaccinated people had a higher risk of breakthrough infection–13 times over!–compared to those with natural immunity. The authors also found higher severity among the vaccinated, stating “SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees were also at a greater risk for COVID-19-related-hospitalizations compared to those that were previously infected.”
The authors note at the end of their study, “This analysis demonstrated that natural immunity affords longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization due to the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity“. This study warrants great optimism because of COVID’s transmissibility. But liberal media outlets would have you think otherwise.
A study out of Qatar communicates similar findings. The scientists used the same retroactive methodology. Again, scraping medical records of Qatar COVID-19 cases. This time, instead of comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated people, this group looked at natural immunity only, and compared the severity of first-infection cases (primary infections) versus second-infection cases (reinfections). They report promising results, “Reinfections had 90% lower odds of resulting in hospitalization or death than primary infections. Four reinfections were severe enough to lead to acute care hospitalization. None led to hospitalization in an ICU, and none ended in death. Reinfections were rare and were generally mild, perhaps because of the primed immune system after primary infection. [emphasis added”
4/1300 reinfection cases lead to severe disease, according to their published data table. Compare that to 193/6095 of the first-infection cases. Natural immunity works.
Another bombshell Israeli study was just released, again in preprint. This group gathered an enormous sample size–over 5.7-million people. Five cohorts were compared as follows:
–Recovered: Previously infected individuals 90 or more days after confirmed infection who had never been vaccinated.
–Recovered then vaccinated: Previously infected individuals who later were 7 or more days after receiving a single vaccine dose.
–Vaccinated then recovered: Individuals who had been vaccinated with one or two doses and were later infected.
–Vaccinated: Individuals seven days or more after receiving the second dose, and who had not been infected before the start of the study period.
–Booster: Individuals who received a third (booster) dose 12 or more days previously andhad not been infected before the start of the study period.
The authors found waning immunity in all of the cohorts. However, the difference among the waning rates (reinfection rate) is what’s important. They report their results, “Clear evidence of waning immunity is evident for all cohorts. The rate of confirmed infections for Recovered individuals for whom the time elapsed from infection was 4 to 6 months was 10.5 per100,000 person days (95 CI: 8.8 to 12.4) increasing with time since recovery to 30.2 (95% CI:28.5 to 32.0) at more than 12 months. For the Vaccinated cohort, the rates were 21.1 (95% CI: 20.0 to 22.4) when the time since vaccination was less than two months increasing with time since vaccination to 88.9 (95% CI: 88.3 to 89.6) at 6 to 8 months. For the Recovered then Vaccinated cohort with the same times since vaccination, the rates were 3.7 (95% CI: 3.1 to 4.5) and 11.6 (95% CI: 10.0 to 13.5), respectively.“
Again in laymen terms: Those who were unvaccinated (the “Recovered” group) had less reinfection than those who were vaccinated. Those who had natural immunity + vaccination had the lowest reinfection rate. They conclude in their discussion with, “Our results are in line with those of a study conducted by an Israeli HMO the previously infected individuals with or without one vaccination dose have better protection than uninfected doubly-vaccinated individuals …“
The aforementioned studies should bring joy to the sensible human being. Natural immunity works, and less people are being infected. This signals there is an end to COVID in the future once herd-immunity is reached. Though the liberal media, without surprise, refuses to present this reason for hope to the populous. Fear-mongering is preferred–It’s a better tactic in completing The Great Commission of COVID Safeism.
