Vaccines not curbing serious COVID outcomes.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is forecasting daily hospital admission levels and new COVID-19-related deaths over the next four weeks in the United States will increase, not decrease, despite more than three-quarters of Americans being vaccinated against the virus.
- The expected increases come as infections and hospitalizations continue to increase across the country, ABC News reports.
- The CDC’s forecast models predict that 42 states and territories in hospital admissions in New York, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Florida are said to see increases in the coming weeks.
- These projected increases in COVID-related health problems come despite 78.3% of the U.S. population having received one dose of the COVID vaccine, 66.7% being “fully” vaccinated, according to the most recent Google data collected from the CDC.
- The fact that COVID infection, hospitalization, and death rates are increasing as vaccination rates also increase in the U.S. raises questions about the vaccine’s purported efficacy. “COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States are effective at protecting people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and even dying,” claims the CDC.
WHAT FAUCI SAID:
- “We are still in the middle of a pandemic, to be sure—there’s no confusion about that,” Dr. Anthony Fauci told Foreign Policy last week.
- That statement came after a contradicting one Fauci made earlier the very same week, when he told PBS Newshour, “We are certainly right now in this country out of the pandemic phase.”
- The World Health Organization (WHO) recently estimated that nearly 15 million people were killed either by coronavirus or by its impact on health systems since the outbreak.
- Most of the fatalities occurred in Southeast Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
