Three nosocomial hospital type outbreak studies showed us: 1) double vaxxed nurses can become infected 2) double vaccinated nurses can transmit virus 3) that they have >250 times viral load

by Paul Alexander

This was a wakeup call along with Barnstable, Mass where approx. 75% of double vaxxed became infected; what was not presented as a main finding was that PPE and masks do not work effectively

  1. In a hospital outbreak investigation in Israel, Shitrit et al. observed “high transmissibility of the SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant among twice vaccinated and masked individuals.” They added that “this suggests some waning of immunity, albeit still providing protection for individuals without comorbidities.”

  2. Reporting on a nosocomial hospital outbreak in Finland, Hetemäki et al. observed that “both symptomatic and asymptomatic infections were found among vaccinated health care workers, and secondary transmission occurred from those with symptomatic infections despite use of personal protective equipment.” 

  3. Chau et al. (Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh) looked at transmission of SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant among vaccinated healthcare workers in Vietnams. Of 69 healthcare workers that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, 62 participated in the clinical study, all of whom recovered. For 23 of them, complete-genome sequences were obtained, and all belonged to the Delta variant. “Viral loads of breakthrough Delta variant infection cases were 251 times higher than those of cases infected with old strains detected between March-April 2020”. 

A key finding to me was what was downplayed and this being that PPE and mask etc. did not appear to work to stop transmission in a hospital setting…this is huge…
