(FiveNation.com)- Anthony Fauci, a COVID-19 consultant for the White House, said on Wednesday morning that the “immunizations” don’t “overly well” protect one from the virus.
Fauci said in an interview with Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto that one of the things evident from the data is that vaccines, because of this virus’s great degree of transmissibility, don’t guard unduly well, as it were, against infection.
Before mentioning his latest COVID-19 diagnosis, Fauci stated subsequently that the immunizations “protect fairly effectively against severe illness leading to hospitalization and death.”
It doesn’t take a scientist to say that that is not an “immunization.” That is a therapeutic.
Fauci, 81, who has served in various capacities in the federal government since the late 1960s, said that even though getting vaccinated and receiving booster shots at his age didn’t protect him against infection, he is confident that they played a significant part in preventing him from developing severe illness. Since the Reagan administration, he has served as the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director.
Fauci continued, “It is quite likely why I had a pretty moderate course due to the immunization.”
(Please stop saying “immunization.”)
-the action of making a person or animal immune to infection, typically by inoculation.
The official’s remarks follow a shocking study that found natural immunity, or the immunity brought on by a prior COVID-19 infection, offers higher protection against the virus when compared to immunizations.
According to researchers in Qatar, those who managed to recover from a COVID-19 infection without receiving a vaccination had exceptionally high resistance to serious or fatal illness.
Regardless of the primary infection or reinfection variety, the effectiveness of primary infection against severe, critical, or deadly COVID-19 reinfection was 97.3 percent. For individuals under 50, sub-group studies revealed similar findings. The author is Weill Cornell Medicine-Dr. Qatar’s Laith Abu-Raddad.
However, the researchers found that with time, both the natural and synthetic immunity brought about by vaccinations diminished. The risk of reinfection was cut in half for individuals who had already contracted COVID-19 but had not received the recommended two doses of vaccination.
“If I had my third dose in 2021, it is quite likely that the immunity is dwindling,” asserted Fauci.
