Senator Rand Paul has had so many wins over Fauci in the past month I can't keep track anymore:
First, for the fAcT-cHeCkErs, I have to clearly spell out that the Cleveland Clinic – although it is one of the most prestigious medical centers in the U.S. and therefore the world – is only one such institution and further data may need to be corroborated.
Now that the obligatory advertisement for the censors is out of the way, here's what the Cleveland Clinic found:
Scientists from the Cleveland Clinic, USA, have recently evaluated the effectiveness of coronavirus disease 2019 COVID-19) vaccination among individuals with or without a history of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.
The study findings reveal that individuals with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection do not get additional benefits from vaccination, indicating that COVID-19 vaccines should be prioritized to individuals without prior infection. The study is currently available on the medRxiv* preprint server.
In other words, what many, including Rand Paul, have been saying since last year about immunity was pretty dang on target.
Here's some more data for ya:
The analysis of cumulative COVID-19 incidence revealed that during the course of the study, SARS-CoV-2 infection occurred almost exclusively in participants who were not previously infected and were not vaccinated.
Interestingly, no significant difference in COVID-19 incidence was observed between previously infected and currently unvaccinated participants, previously infected and currently vaccinated participants, and previously uninfected and currently vaccinated participants.
The participants from these three groups exhibited a significantly lower incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection compared to previously uninfected and currently unvaccinated participants.
Specifically, of all infections during the study period, 99.3% occurred in participants who were not infected previously and remained unvaccinated. In contrast, only 0.7% of infections occurred in participants who were not previously infected but were currently vaccinated.
Importantly, not a single incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection was observed in previously infected participants with or without vaccination.
Despite this, our mainstream media isn't talking about it.
This should be good news. We can now send vaccines to other nations that are being harder hit by variants, which will reduce the spread and the possibility of new variants.
So why aren't major outlets covering it like crazy? I mean, they were SUPER quick to spread fear. What about hope and joy?
Could it be – and bear with me for a second – that the media is total garbage and journalism is dead?
Here's some more from Doctor/Senator Paul:
