We bring you news of research by the US Centre For Disease Control via www.resistthemainstream.org in its entirity because we feel it is something our mainly British and European readership need to be aware of. It is likely that after a few days in which we will research further information on this theme from Israel, Germany, France, Sweden and India this article will be replaced by a far more wide ranging piece on the failure of the vaccines to protect those who needed protection. Until then we hop the site managers of resistthemainsteam are not offended by our use of their material.
All Vaccinated People With Severe COVID-19 Had at Least 1 Risk Factor: CDC StudyJanuary 7, 2022
The health agency studied approximately 1,228,664 persons aged 18 and over who completed primary vaccination from December 2020 to October 2021, receiving either Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, or an “unspecified mRNA vaccine.”
Among these, 2,246 contracted COVID-19, including 327 who were hospitalized, while 189 had a severe COVID-19 outcome, and 36 had a COVID-19–related death (including nine persons discharged to hospice), the CDC said.
Among those who acquired COVID-19 after primary vaccination, 36 died, 24 survived and were admitted to an ICU, and 129 survived but were diagnosed with acute respiratory failure or required non-invasive ventilation but were not admitted to an ICU.
The CDC said that severe outcomes associated with getting the vaccine are rare, with 0.015 percent of those who were studied having severe outcomes and 0.0033 percent of participants dying.
Those who suffered serious outcomes had risk factors which included being aged 65 and older, being immunocompromised, or having underlying conditions involving pulmonary disease, liver disease, chronic kidney disease, neurologic disease, diabetes, or cardiac disease.
All those with severe outcomes had at least one of these risk factors, and 77.8 percent of those who died had four or more risk factors, the CDC said.
“Vaccinated persons who are older, immunosuppressed, or have other underlying conditions should receive targeted interventions including chronic disease management, precautions to reduce exposure, additional primary and booster vaccine doses, and effective pharmaceutical therapy to mitigate risk for severe outcomes,” the CDC said. “Increasing vaccination coverage is a critical public health priority.”
Among 3,395 persons who received booster or additional vaccine doses, 27 contracted COVID-19, of which three had severe outcomes but this did not include ICU admission or deaths.
The CDC also noted that population-wide data has demonstrated that COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths are more frequent among Hispanic, non-Hispanic Black, and non-Hispanic American Indian or Alaska Native persons than among non-Hispanic White persons.
This might be down to multiple factors, including higher levels of exposure to the virus, reduced access to care, and higher rates of uncontrolled underlying conditions among these populations, the CDC said. However, the agency has not found any association between race/ethnicity and severe COVID-19 outcomes after receiving the shot.
The study published Thursday was conducted before the discovery of the highly transmissible, although less severe, Omicron variant in South Africa in November.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said Thursday that worldwide cases of COVID-19 have “increased sharply” in the past week but the overall number of deaths dropped.
Between Dec. 27, 2021, and Jan. 2, 2022, the number of cases increased by 71 percent compared to the previous week, the agency said in its weekly epidemiological update, although it did not reference the Omicron variant. Meanwhile, it said the number of deaths dropped by 10 percent worldwide.
The figures come as Omicron continues to spread across the globe. This week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that Omicron makes up about 95.4 percent of all COVID-19 cases, supplanting the previously dominant Delta strain.
Novak Djokovic is no victim but Australian government 's political opportunism is disgusting
While the world divides more deeply into two camps over the COVID mRNA vaccines, one of the most shameful incidents of the whole pandemic has been playing out in Australia where the world No 1 tennis player has been subjected to a medieval with hunt over his refusal to accept vaccination. The persecution of Novak Djokovic has been engineered purely because the nation's leaders want to put it at the forefront of the push towards global vaccine tyranny.
