The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has modified two criteria that will result in underreporting of reinfected persons who have already received vaccines.
According to the CDC’s official website, one of the modified criteria is that beginning May 14; the health authority will no longer consider cases of infections in people already vaccinated against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus that have not resulted in hospitalization or death.
“COVID-19 (CCP Virus) Breakthrough Case Investigations and Reporting: As previously announced, CDC is transitioning to reporting only patients with COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infection that were hospitalized or died to help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance. That change in reporting will begin on May 14, 2021,” the CDC update states.
The second modified criterion has to do with tests done with PCRs.
With a PCR-type test, RNA is extracted from the swab taken from the person. That is then converted to DNA, which is then amplified using a formula.
The cycle threshold (CT) is a value that PCR tests use to amplify the person’s genetic material.
The CT value refers to the number of cycles required to amplify the viral RNA to a detectable level. The CT used globally to detect the virus is 35-40, which some clinicians criticize as too high to the point that the results are considered “false positives.”
If the virus is detectable after 35 cycles or earlier, the patient is considered positive.
However, the new CDC update reduces the TC from 35 to 24 for vaccinated persons only, meaning that many positive cases in vaccinated persons will no longer be reported due to the reduced PCR testing parameter.
For the CDC, a person who tests positive for the CCP Virus 14 days after receiving the vaccine is considered a breakthrough case. In these scenarios, the health authority applied both criteria changes, which will result in fewer infections being reported in vaccinated persons, perhaps in an attempt to validate the efficacy of the vaccines.
Cases of reinfection after receiving the vaccine
According to the CDC as of April 26, 2021, there were 9245 persons who tested positive for the CCP virus after being vaccinated.
Of those 9245 people who re-infected with the virus, 835 were hospitalized and 132 died.
Of course, the reports of breakthrough cases are not 100% reliable because testing is voluntary. Not everyone is tested after vaccination. Many hospitals and clinics do not report cases accordingly, etc. However, these figures do provide a general idea of the effectiveness of the vaccines.
The return to normalcy, immunity, and vaccines
The general idea of the health authorities was to push mass vaccination worldwide to generate immunity to the disease and to be able to return to normality, at least that is what they tried to sell from the beginning.
However, the efficacy of vaccines, especially as vaccination progresses globally, has proven to be low and in fact, in several countries that massively vaccinated their population, spikes of cases emerged even more strongly than before, casting doubt on the initial idea of a return to normalcy after vaccination.
Recent data indicates that 60% of new cases of coronavirus are in people who have been vaccinated. The countries considered for these figures are Israel, and the little-known Seychelles Island, where 62% and 53% of the population were vaccinated.
In other words, despite all the show in the media the vaccines are not effective, they have not generated immunity and people cannot return to normality.
Maybe the answer is not in science and is time humanity look for answers in the Divine.
