A preprint paper by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group, which was published on August 10th in The Lancet, found that fully vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the viral load of COVID-19.
“Viral loads of breakthrough Delta variant infection cases were 251 times higher than those of cases infected with old strains detected between March-April 2020.”
According to the study, the vaccines seemingly allow vaccinated individuals to carry unusually high viral loads without becoming ill at least at first, transforming them into superspreaders who will become symptomatic later on.
Many experts are asking if this is the cause of the unprecedented summertime surge in cases many nations are seeing. If asymptomatic spread historically is never the driver of the spread of viruses due to eventual symptomatic patients remaining indoors, what happens when people stay asymptomatic for longer?
The study focused on healthcare workers who were unable to leave the hospital for two weeks. The study showed that fully vaccinated workers, about two months after injection, carried and transmitted the virus to their vaccinated colleagues after infection.
They also passed the virus to unvaccinated people, including their patients. The vaccine used in the study was the Oxford/AstraZeneca (AZD1222) vaccine.
According to a recent report from the New York Times, a person working in partnership with the CDC on investigations of the delta variant, spoke about the breakthrough cases on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak.
The anonymous source said the data came from a July 4 outbreak in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Genetic analysis of the outbreak showed that people who were vaccinated were transmitting the virus to other vaccinated people. The source said the data was “deeply disconcerting” and a “canary in the coal mine” for scientists who had seen the data.
The conclusions of the paper solidify warnings by many medical experts about the three “leaky vaccines” that allow the carriage of 251 times the viral load of the virus as compared to samples from the pre-vaccination era.
There are currently exploding rates of infections, hospitalizations, and deaths among fully vaccinated people. In Israel, around 60% of those hospitalized are fully vaccinated, while over 60% of deaths in Clark County, NV, (Las Vegas) are now in vaccinated people.
The phenomenon noted in this latest study may be the source of the unprecedented summertime post-vaccination surges in heavily vaccinated populations in the US, and the surges we are seeing globally.
In fully vaccinated Gibraltar for example, they are witnessing a 2,500% spike in covid cases, and mostly vaccinated Israel cases are so high that US citizens are advised not to travel there.
