Why run the risks of a vaccine when the survival rate for most people who get Covid is well above 99 percent? From James Rickards at dailyreckoning.com:
Many everyday Americans probably believe that the COVID vaccines will keep them from getting COVID. That’s not true and never has been true.
The vaccines do not prevent you from being infected with the COVID virus. They do not keep you from spreading the COVID virus.
There have been many cases of so-called “breakthrough” infections where double-vaxxed citizens get COVID anyway. That’s not uncommon.
There’s even new evidence that double-vaxxed individuals who get COVID will build up huge viral loads in their noses and sinuses, causing them to become super-spreaders and infect others.
Do the vaccines do anything?
Yes, they are effective at reducing severe symptoms of COVID. They also reduce the death rate among those who get infected. That’s advantageous for the most vulnerable, including those over 70 years old and those suffering from obesity, emphysema, diabetes and other conditions closely associated with fatalities due to COVID.
That said, there’s almost no reason for children, teenagers and otherwise healthy individuals in their 20s or even 30s to take the vaccine.
Among all individuals, vaccinated and unvaccinated, the global survival rate is 99.2%. Among those under 70, the survival rate is 99.97%. The survival rate for children is 99.995%.
