A clinician considers vaccinated Democrats that caught the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus to be at risk of infecting a large number of people.
Marc Siegel declared six Texas Democrats, who tested positive for the CCP Virus, are part of a “super-spreader” event. Fortunately, a relatively small number of people contracted the deadly disease because everyone was fully vaccinated.
“A lot of people did not get sick because they were vaccinated,” the New York University Langone Medical Center professor said according to Fox News. “This is a super-spreader event with less spread because of the vaccine–that is the glass [is] half full.”
The remarks came after one of the state lawmakers infected a top aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and another White House staff member on July 21.
Press Secretary Jen Psaki quickly rejected any medical advice that a “super-spreader” event had occurred.
“I would say that is not a characterization we are making from here,” she said in a statement. “We certainly understand there will be breakthrough cases, even vaccines that are incredibly effective are not foolproof. They are not 100 percent effective–we have seen that.”
Psaki was relieved that everyone was fully immunized at the time of infection.
“We know that there will be breakthrough cases but, as this instance shows, cases in vaccinated individuals are typically mild,” she said. “This is another reminder of the efficacy of the COVID-19 (CCP Virus) vaccines against severe illness or hospitalizations and … we wish our colleague a speedy recovery.”
Siegel criticized Psaki for rejecting his medical advice that a “super-spreader” occurred. He believes if no Texas Democrats or staff members were vaccinated, they could have infected everyone.
“They are creating divisiveness by refusing to acknowledge a medical reality,” he said according to the broadcaster.
He also described those Democrats who did not wear a face mask during meetings as a living examples of “recklessness and mixed messaging.”
At least six out of the 55 fully vaccinated Texas lawmakers tested positive for the virus at the time of publication. This equates to a breakthrough proportion of more than 10 percent. The patients are either asymptomatic or only experiencing mild symptoms.
On July 12, the group fled the Lone Star State to deprive their Republican counterparts of the necessary quorum to pass a controversial voting restriction bill.
However, their partisan stunt backfired after practically none of them wore face masks during their charter flight to Washington. They also did not wear face masks during meetings with Pelosi, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
The White House claims the state lawmakers’s actions are consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. The rules state fully vaccinated people are not legally required to wear face masks or quarantine, even if they come into contact with infected people.
The so-called “super-spreader” event arguably represents a major blow to the Biden administration’s efforts to urge Americans to take the experimental jab.
A growing number of patients have reported adverse reactions to the vaccine, including blood clots, heart inflammation or even death. CDC released a July 16 report confirming a total of 463,457 injuries were induced from CCP Virus vaccines in people of all ages, between Dec. 14, 2020 and July 9, 2021.
