Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

When infected with the delta variant, a given contact was 65 percent less likely to test positive if the person from whom the exposure occurred was fully vaccinated with two doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

This is on top of the already understood shorter duration of being infectious if you are vaccinated versus someone that is unvaccinated. If you test positive and are fully vaccinated the time you are contagious is significantly shortened.

Those that are fully vaccinated are also less likely to come down with COVID-19.

There is nothing better in preventing severe disease or death from COVID than being fully vaccinated. Now we are also finding out that in those "breakthrough" cases, they are far less deadly, much more likely not to require hospitalization, and significantly reduce the spread of the Delta variant, which effectively reduces the R0 number. Reducing the R0 to less than 1 will result in a "burn out" of the pandemic.

This is news? Sadly, for some it probably is.

#3 - given the sheet amount of idiocy and anti-vax propaganda and misinformation it is. The news in this is a qualified and well done study confirming what has been obvious and what rational people have been saying for months.

NOT PEER REVIEWED. Don't post this nonsense until it is as that is the standard for this forum per the liberals when it comes to ivermectin.

#6 - coming from a propagator of nonstop lies and misinformation promising all kinds of miraculous cures that don't exist and for which you are constantly called out on, I find your response entertaining. Thanks!

LOL. I am just applying the standards you set - now you are butthurt over it. Seems like you don't really care about peer review, you just like using it as an excuse to bury your head in the sand.

"NOT PEER REVIEWED"

There are currently 19,167 preprints just about SARS-CoV-2 on bioRxiv. connect.biorxiv.org

You're paying the "We don't have enough information" game.

#8 - I'm not butthurt as I don't have anything invested in this except furthering factual information and current findings.

You are pushing a drug that has shown no efficacy and can cost people their lives that both the FDA and CDC have had to issue warnings about. All because of people like you.

For some (the ones who want to pretend they are not "co-parenting" their children with the nasty old gubmint) it is just another lie.

After all, satanic rituals are performed with worshippers 6 feet apart and wearing masks!

Coincidence???

I think not!

I am hearing from people who work in health care.

They have told me they are seeing 30-40 percent of people hospitaled are vaccinated.

This is awfully close to 50 percent which would mean the shots are not doing much at all.

Granted the shots are doing something positive but really for how long?

Stay away from crowds for extended lengths of time to reduce your odds.

"This is awfully close to 50 percent which would mean the shots are not doing much at all."

We're at 56.3% fully vaccinated and hopefully rising as more and more employers require it.

"They" are making this up. You are a dim-witted turd.

The people who got vaccinated first were those most likely to die from it followed by those most likely to contract it.

At the bottom of the list were losers like you "Bill".

PS your ushanka is gay.
