Remarkably some scientists in Qatar working with counterparts in New York have undertaken a study asking vital questions.
They decided to study only the unvaccinated.
Objectively considered, what they discovered should change the exclusively pro-mRNA vaccination policies which currently dominate the entire world.
90% of Qataris are vaccinated, but the authors tracked several hundred thousand unvaccinated individuals and studied how well they were protected from infection, reinfection, and serious Covid illness.
The authors began by noting that:
“The future of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic hinges on virus evolution and duration of immune protection of natural infection against reinfection.”
In other words: How well does natural immunity work?
“Effectiveness of primary infection against severe, critical, or fatal COVID-19 reinfection was 97.3% (95% CI: 94.9- 98.6%), irrespective of the variant of primary infection or reinfection, and with no evidence for waning. Similar results were found in subgroup analyses for those ≥50 years of age.”
The authors concluded that protection at this 97.3% level will last for three years, possibly longer depending on the course of Covid viral evolution.
The resounding significance of this is:
Once infected by Covid, if you are unvaccinated, you are very highly protected from serious illness even if reinfected.
Following initial infection, Covid becomes no more dangerous to the unvaccinated than other corona viruses such as the common cold.
Conversely, an unrelated study of five million clients of US Veterans Affairs health services found that for the vaccinated, reinfection resulted in more serious health outcomes than their initial infection.
In other words, vaccination including boosters did not decrease the risk of reinfection but did increase the severity of symptoms. Nor did vaccination provide any more protection against reinfection than the unvaccinated had.
These two studies are not strictly comparable in every sense because the two groups being studied are demographically very different from one another.
For example, the US Veterans were already enrolled in a health support programme which suggests that a proportion of them might already be ill.
Nevertheless, the two studies together should correct the current presumption of governments that mRNA vaccination is the only way out of the pandemic.
Governments are Promoting More mRNA Vaccination Without Adequate Evidence of Effectiveness
Yesterday outgoing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced new measures to encourage boosters and said the rollout will ‘keep our defences strong’ over autumn and winter and ensure ‘Covid can never haunt us in the same way again’.
Last week Canadian Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos told reporters:
“Canadians will be required to get a booster shot every nine months for the foreseeable future….If you’ve already received a first booster, that’s great, but check if you are eligible for a second or third booster.”
Three days ago the New Zealand government announced they are finalising arrangements for NZers to receive boosters at even shorter intervals.
These statements illustrate how politicians everywhere and their health advisors have become detached from the realities of Covid science research publishing.
The unvaccinated continue to be blamed for the ills of the pandemic—they remain convenient scapegoats—while boosters have been accepted as the gold standard approach.
Yet the latest study from Qatar shows the unvaccinated have made a generally wise choice which, assuming they survived initial infection as almost everyone does, is going to protect them moving ahead into future years.
Whereas the vaccinated appear to be facing health challenges which are possibly only going to get worse.
The principal error of governments and their advisors early on in the pandemic was to accept an unsupported doctrine created by mRNA vaccine manufacturers that many serious outcomes following Covid vaccination were unrelated to vaccination.
Vaccine trial results and post-vaccine reporting showed that a significant number of participants suffered from a wide range of conditions including heart disease, strokes, neurological illness, auto-immune disease, sudden onset cancers, kidney and liver disease, and many others. Most of these were dismissed as unrelated to vaccination.
It was a misleading and fatal error on the part of governments to accept these assurances of vaccine manufacturers without undertaking sufficient independent assessment.
Now we have arrived at a state of double jeopardy. Covid has gone through viral evolution which has significantly bypassed the protection of mRNA vaccination.
Conjointly the long term adverse effects of mRNA vaccination appear to be dramatically raising all cause mortality even among working age people.
Politicians seem sadly out of touch and unable to process this information, they are still pointing to mRNA vaccination as the only way ahead.
