BOSTON — A study published in the European Journal of Epidemiology late last month shows that the most “vaccinated” countries around the world and the most “vaccinated” counties in America are seeing some of the highest levels of new cases of COVID-19.
The study was conducted by S.V. Subramanian and Akhil Kumar. Subramanian works in the department of social and behavioral sciences and the T.H. Chan School of Public Health at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies.
“The sole reliance on vaccination as a primary strategy to mitigate COVID-19 and its adverse consequences needs to be re-examined, especially considering the Delta (B.1.617.2) variant and the likelihood of future variants,” the study states. “Other pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions may need to be put in place alongside increasing vaccination rates. Such course correction, especially with regards to the policy narrative, becomes paramount with emerging scientific evidence on real-world effectiveness of the vaccines.”
The study notes that the public policy narrative continues to be that the shots are the sole mitigation strategy here and around the world despite the data suggesting other strategies, like treatments, are more effective.
That mainstream narrative was once again pushed by Anthony Fauci over the weekend when he said: “The more people we get vaccinated, the less likelihood there is going to be another surge as we go into the winter.”
As for the study, the findings suggest otherwise. The study included data from 2,947 counties in the U.S. as well as data from 68 countries.
“At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days…. In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel, with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated, had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days. The lack of a meaningful association between percentage population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases is further exemplified, for instance, by comparison of Iceland and Portugal. Both countries have over 75% of their population fully vaccinated and have more COVID-19 cases per 1 million people than countries such as Vietnam and South Africa that have around 10% of their population fully vaccinated,” the study finds.
It added: “Across the US counties too, the median new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in the last 7 days is largely similar across the categories of percent population fully vaccinated. Notably, there is also substantial county variation in new COVID-19 cases within categories of percentage population fully vaccinated. There also appears to be no significant signaling of COVID-19 cases decreasing with higher percentages of population fully vaccinated.”
Four of the five most jabbed counties in America, with anywhere between 84.3 and 99.9 percent of citizens submitting to the shot, are listed at “high” transmission by the Centers for Disease Control. On the other side, 15 of the 57 counties that are considered “low” transmission have less than 20 percent of their residents jabbed.
The study provides weight to Dr. Harvey Risch, a professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health and Medicine, who said in a recent interview:
“The unvaccinated should be afraid of the vaccinated. They’re just as infected, in fact maybe more infected.”
“It is well known that it is the vaccinated people that generate the mutant strains and not the unvaccinated people, and that corruption of the medical establishment saying that ‘unvaccinated people are generating the mutants’ is an absolute falsehood. It is exactly the opposite. This has been known for 100 years that it’s vaccinated people who are more prone to generate mutant strains.”
