Higher COVID Rate Found in Some California Counties With Higher Vaccination Rate

How is that remotely possible?

State workers and health care employees will now be required to show proof of vaccine or get tested for COVID at least once a week.

The governor announced the new guidance today and is urging private employers to “replicate the example.”

This comes as the highly contagious Delta variant is now dominant in the state and COVID rates have skyrocketed in the month since California officially reopened, including breakthrough cases among vaccinated Californians.

A new analysis finds several counties with above-average vaccination rates also have higher COVID case rates, while case rates are falling in counties with below-average vaccination rates.

Statewide data analyzed by the Bay Area News Group found five counties, Los Angeles, San Diego, Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Francisco, have both a higher percentage of people who are fully vaccinated than the state average and a higher average daily case rate.

Compare that to these five counties: Modoc, Glenn, Lassen, Del Norte, and San Benito, which have below-average vaccination rates and decreasing case rates.

However, UCSF infectious disease expert Dr. Phillip Norris clarifies that the data doesn’t mean the vaccine is not working.

He notes, first, the counties referenced with higher vaccination and case rates are more densely populated.

“If there are a lot of people around you’re more likely to bump into one who has COVID,” Norris explained.

He, like other infectious disease experts, warns that vaccinated people may be unknowingly spreading the virus.

Julie: A lot of people think if they’re vaccinated, they can’t transmit. Is that true?

Phillip: So, originally we thought that might be true.

But he says that’s no longer the case, thanks to the Delta variant. [Or more likely, thanks to vaccines losing effectiveness fast. “Delta” or “the Indian Variant” as it was known before the rebrand has been around since November 2020 and there is nothing special about it. In fact, India is doing rather well COVID-wise again. (Because it’s all seasonality.)]

He points to preliminary data from China that indicates the viral load in the nose from the Delta variant may be 1,000 times higher than previous variants.

“If that’s the case, even a little bit in somebody who’s vaccinated could be a lot,” he explains.

Several studies have indicated that vaccines may reduce transmission, but most were based on previous COVID variants. (See herehere and here).

Norris notes that as case rates increase with the Delta variant, more vaccinated and unvaccinated people will get COVID, though data indicates that the rates will likely remain much higher among the unvaccinated. [Actually data, including from Israel and this CA counties thing indicates the opposite.]

Consider this: In Los Angeles County last month, vaccinated people made up one out of five new COVID cases. [Of course they do, since you’re making the unvaccinated test for all kinds of things all the time, which isn’t the case for the injected.]

That means, for example, out of 100,000 people, 10 vaccinated people would test positive for every 40 unvaccinated people.

Infectious disease experts stress that vaccinated people also have fewer symptoms, are less likely to be hospitalized and are still believed to be less likely to transmit.

However, for those who have immune-compromised people in their life, it’s also important to remember that you can still get COVID and give it to them — even if you’re both vaccinated.

A lot of people think if they’re vaccinated, they can’t transmit. Is that true?” Idiot 1

 So, originally we thought that might be true.” Idiot 2

“We thought” ——- “might” I don’t know which is the bigger fool. (lol)

“He points to preliminary data from China that indicates the viral load in the nose from the Delta variant may be 1,000 times higher than previous variants”

The CDC is dropping the PCR test because one of its MANY problems is IT CANNOT DETERMINE VIRAL LOAD. So what test does China have that can do that? None! Which is why they said its from China.

They can’t determine viral load because the virus does not exist except in silico aka computer generated. READ the damn literature. Since the virus does not exist then neither can the variants.

The urinalist is a propaganda pervader and the MD is a quack of the highest order and they have earned their 30 pieces of silver.

Now,,, here is the way it works. If you are truly vaccinated and truly immune you would never have the disease and therefore cannot spread something you do not have. capiche?

And for the morons in Commiefornia and other commie/fascist areas,,, One is not considered vaxxinated until two weeks AFTER the second kill shot. So if you go in the hospital a few days after your first or second suicidal shot, your death will be counted as unvaxxinated and marked as a delta variant death. They’re using your sorry dead asses to further their agenda.

For those that “b e l i e v e”,,, go get a couple of boosters. I guarantee you will be vaxxecuted to the nnth degree and will never again catch any disease of this physical world!

Yep, that’s science, all right; ‘might be’. ‘Could’. ‘We thought’. Once upon a time, back when dinosaurs walked the earth, science meant what you could prove.

How is a ‘vaccine passport’ going to work if a shot only keeps you ‘immune’ (ha, ha) for 4-6 months, after which you need a booster? It’s like a driver’s license that runs out every 6 years, after which you have to get it renewed, and anyone who’s done that knows what an administrative circus it is. Now speed that up to the tune of having to get your I-can-go-to-restaurants-and-movie-theatres ‘vaccine pass’ renewed twice a year. You can’t just get your driver’s license and then drive for life. You apparently can’t just get vaccinated for COVID once (or twice, which actually constitutes ‘full vaccination’ in the case of mRNA vaccines); no, it wears off rather quickly and you’re going to need a ‘booster’ every 4-6 months. So the guy at the movie theatre not only has to check that you have a ‘vaccine passport’ and that it’s not a fake, he has to check that your ‘immunity date’ still puts you in the ‘safe window’. For every customer. Never mind popcorn – you better bring MRE’s and a full canteen of water, because you’re going to be in line for a long time.

Vaxxers are funny; they’re so earnest and bustling, it’s sort of cute.

The problems of the study referenced… Israeli’s study, if one actually examines the data, not just big numbers like 92% effectiveness, demonstrate the same thing Pfizer clinical study demonstrated – of overall sample number in the study, the difference between vaxed and unvaxed was between 0.5% and 1.5% incidents of any symptoms; between 0.05% and 0.1% in hospitalizations; 0.05% vs. 0.1% in incidents of severe symptoms; AND between 0.01 and 0.03% in deaths. Meaning – out of 600k subjects, 0.1% got hospitalized and 0.03% died without vaccines. The mortality caused by this disease without vax is so low – it’s not even worth talking about.
