Something is rotten in the state of Denmark: the vaccinated are getting all variants of Covid in droves. From Alex Berenson at alexberenson.substack.com:
But not for the reason you’ve been told; the story is vaccine failure, not Omicron
The Danes are now publishing extremely detailed daily data about Covid cases and hospitalizations – not just about Omicron, but all Covid variants.
And, in news that will surprise precisely no one who has been alive the last two years, they paint a picture entirely different than what the media claims.
Omicron – which continues to appear significantly less dangerous though more transmissible than earlier variants of Covid – has been used as a cover for vaccine failure.
Most new Covid cases in Denmark occur in people who are vaccinated or boosted – and that is true for both Omicron and earlier variants. More than 76 percent of non-Omicron Covid infections in Denmark are in vaccinated people, along with about 90 percent of Omicron infections.
Further, only 25 of the 561 people currently hospitalized in Denmark for Covid have the Omicron variant. The Danes do not provide an exact number for patients in intensive care with Omicron, saying only that it is fewer than five.
Perhaps the most stunning fact about Omicron and Denmark is that its rise actually parallels a marked slowdown in the growth of Danish hospitalizations and intensive care patients. Those rose roughly fivefold between mid-October and late November, as the Danes left the happy vaccine valley. Since then they have barely budged, rising about 20 percent.
Follow the numbers. From Alex Berenson at alexberenson.substack.com:
This is not how it was supposed to go.
Deaths hitting new highs in Singapore (85% of the population fully vaccinated – NOT adults, the entire population):

Inexplicably the CDC only counts breakthrough cases, in which a vaccinated person contracts Covid, when they result in hospitalization or death. If that standard had been in effect during the entire pandemic, case counts probably would have been cut at least 50 percent. From Megan Redshaw at childrenshealthdefense.org:
As the number of breakthrough COVID cases continues to climb, there is growing concern fully vaccinated people may be more vulnerable to serious illness than previously thought — and some fully vaccinated people now sick with the virus are speaking out.
According to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were 9,716 breakthrough cases resulting in hospitalization or death as of Aug. 16. However, the agency states those numbers are underreported. On May 1, the CDC made a decision to stop tracking all breakthrough cases and instead only track cases in the fully vaccinated that resulted in hospitalization or death.
That leaves public health officials without the full data that can answer questions as the new Delta variant spreads.
In an interview with PBS News Hour, Jessica Malaty Rivera, an infectious disease epidemiologist and research fellow at Boston Children’s Hospital and former science communications lead at the COVID Tracking Project, said not tracking breakthrough data with as much granularity as we would hope is “basically creating blind spots in our understanding of the true impact of the virus, especially the variants that are circulating so widely in the United States.”
Rivera said she has yet to see an explicit explanation for why the CDC stopped tracking all breakthrough cases. “I’ve heard rumors of things like lack of resources, lack of funding, lack of staff. But to me, it seems pretty, from an epidemiology standpoint, not defensible,” she said.
The only people who believe anything the government is saying about Covid and vaccines are the bought-off corrupt, don’t-bother-me-with-facts acolytes of the church of state, and morons drowning in their own drool. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:
The Covid Scam is collapsing across the entire front much like the Wehrmacht after Stalingrad. Mask mandates and lockdowns are on the comeback because health authorities now admit that the Covid vaccines do not offer effective protection, especially against what are called “new variants.” What is the point of a Covid passport when the vaccine does not protect and the vaccinated have to wear masks? https://www.rt.com/usa/530394-cdc-vaccinated-masks-indoors/
Presstitute scum in the US falsely report that the “new outbreak” of Covid is among the unvaccinated young, and the push is on to vaccinate all the youth. But the facts tell a different story. In the UK, for example, new Covid cases are exploding among the fully vaccinated, rising 40 percent in one week while new covid cases among the unvaccinated are declining by 22%.
Israel is another example where the rise in Covid cases is among the vaccinated.
It is hilarious to watch vaccine defenders argue that the rise in new Covid cases among the vaccinated is proof that the vaccines work! No, I am not making this up. Here is Katelyn Jetelina: “The more vaccinated a population, the more we’ll hear of the vaccinated getting infected.”
Arieh Kovler explains: “Countries with high vaccination will see mostly vaccinated people getting ill from Covid.” https://www.deseret.com/coronavirus/2021/7/20/22584134/whats-going-on-in-israels-outbreak-among-vaccinated-people
What they mean is that as populations become vaccinated, there is no one to catch Covid but the vaccinated.
