The vaccinated and unvaccinated can carry the same viral loads of Covid-19. You’re just as likely to catch Covid from the vaccinated as the unvaccinated. Vaccine mandates are as useless as every other mandate promulgated since the outbreak began. By Steve Kirsch at stevekirsch.substack.com:
A short proof based on a new UC Davis/UCSF study showing the viral loads of the vaccinated and unvaccinated are identical.
Let’s be clear.
COVID vaccine mandates are necessary because the protected need to be protected from the unprotected by forcing the unprotected to use the protection that didn’t protect the protected.
A study from UC Davis and UCSF authors published on October 5, 2021 show conclusively that the viral loads are exactly the the same in vaccinated and unvaccinated.
“No Significant Difference in Viral Load Between Vaccinated and Unvaccinated, Asymptomatic and Symptomatic Groups Infected with SARS-CoV-2 Delta Variant.
The data gathered in this study during the surge of the Delta variant strongly support the notion that neither vaccine status nor the presence or absence of symptoms should influence the recommendation and implementation of good public health practices, including mask wearing, testing, social distancing, and other measures designed to mitigate the spread of SARS-CoV-2.”
In other words, the latest data from UCSF shows that basing public health practices on vaccination status is nonsensical. A person who is unvaccinated is just as likely to have and spread COVID as someone who is vaccinated. They are no different. If they were different, we’d see it clearly in that study (which sampled people at random times).
