CDC Intentionally Undercounting COVID-19 “Breakthrough Cases” in Vaccinated Persons

CDC Intentionally Undercounting COVID-19 “Breakthrough Cases” in Vaccinated Persons

When the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relaxed its mask-wearing guidelines on May 13, 2021, it assured Americans, “The science is clear: If you are fully vaccinated, you are protected, and you can start doing the things that you stopped doing because of the pandemic.” But that assurance should be accompanied with brief addendum like… “At least we believe you’re protected. Most of the time.”

Fully Vaccinated People are Coming Down With COVID-19

The fact is that there are plenty of cases of people who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and still got infected the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Take the recent case of the nine fully vaccinated New York Yankees players and staff members who tested positive for COVID-19. Seven of them were asymptomatic and two showed mild symptoms.1 2

Or how about comedian and television host Bill Maher, who recently tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated? He also was asymptomatic.3

There is the recent case of a woman Olivia Kingree of Madison, Wisconsin, who developed COVID-19 and died on May 16, more than a month after being fully vaccinated. And there’s the recent case of Alan Sporn of Chicago, who came down with COVID-19 and died on Mar. 29, more than a month after being fully vaccinated.4 5 6

Or the case of the famous Rutgers University professor Rajendra Kapila, MD He was fully vaccinated and died of COVID-19 in India on Apr. 28.7

You can pick up the newspaper or go online every morning and find similar cases all over the country of individuals, who thought they were going to be protected from being infected with SARS-CoV-2 by getting vaccinated, only to learn they were not immune at all to the new coronavirus because the vaccine failed to work as advertised. The big stories, like the one about the Yankees or Maher make the front pages, but most are tucked away where you can’t find them, unless you dig in and do the research online. a little.

COVID-19 vaccine failures are being called “breakthrough cases.”

In an article in The Vaccine Reaction published on Apr. 26, writer Carolyn Hendler reported there had been, “5,800 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in fully vaccinated persons occurring more than two weeks after vaccination and resulting in almost 400 hospitalizations and 74 deaths.”8 9

On its website, the CDC states that, as of Apr. 26, there had been more than 13,564 breakthrough cases reported to the government.10 But that may just may be the tip of the iceberg.

There is no way to know for sure how many fully vaccinated people have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 because a significant portion of those who contract the virus never show symptoms of COVID-19 and so they would never consider reporting their condition to anyone, much less the CDC. They would simply go about their daily lives blissfully thinking they’re fully vaccinated and, thus… protected and safe from getting infected.

CDC Decides to Only Count Breakthrough Cases Involving Hospitalization or Death

Interestingly, on that same website page, the CDC states it is changing its policy of how public health officials monitor breakthrough cases of COVID-19 in fully vaccinated people:

In the coming weeks, CDC will transition from monitoring all reported vaccine breakthrough cases to focus on identifying and investigating only vaccine breakthrough infections that result in hospitalization or death. This shift will help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance.10

Yes, you read it correctly. The CDC has decided it will no longer bother counting all the “breakthrough cases” of COVID-19 reported to the government. It will only count those COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases that are so serious they result in the person being admitted to a hospital and dying.11

What is the CDC’s explanation for this policy change in monitoring how many COVID-19 vaccine failures there are among vaccinated people? Reportedly, public health officials are making the change to “maximize the quality of data collected on cases.”11 Whatever that means.

An article in Fortune noted that this change in policy is “already drawing concern from some scientists who say that may mean missing needed data showing why and how it happens.” According to Eric Topol, MD, director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla, California, “We shouldn’t be narrowing the focus, we should be broadening and develop a systematic plan.”11

Breakthrough Case Count Will Decline Under CDC’s New Policy

Let’s think rationally about what this reductionist policy means. It means that the number of breakthrough cases of COVID-19 in fully vaccinated persons will suddenly plummet as of this month. Not because the COVID-19 vaccines are actually working and preventing SARS-CoV-2 infections (and transmission) but, rather, because the CDC has arbitrarily decided not to count all the potentially thousands (perhaps tens of hundreds of thousands) of known breakthrough cases.

Countless breakthrough cases will go under the radar because they occurred in asymptomatic vaccinated people. Or the COVID-19 breakthrough cases occurred in vaccinated people, who had mild symptoms and made the effort to inform their health care providers they felt ill, but were never hospitalized and did not die.

But this will not be the story that will be reported by doctors, public health officials, governors and legislators and the media over the next few months. Instead, what you’ll likely hear and read will be, “Look at how the number of COVID cases are dropping. That’s undeniable proof that these vaccines are highly effective and offer the only way to rid of us of this terrible virus.”

No, it is not proof. It is merely a change of policy.

Smoke and Mirrors Policy Change with Polio Definition Similar to Policy Change Monitoring COVID-19 Breakthrough Cases

It reminds me of the way the U.S. government changed its definition of polio back in 1954 when medical researcher and virologist Jonas Salk introduced his inactivated injectable polio vaccine (IPV).

Before 1954, the patient had to “exhibit paralytic symptoms for only 24 hours.” Before the polio vaccine was put on the market and recommended for all children in 1954, “Laboratory confirmation and the presence of residual paralysis were not required.” However, after 1954, “residual paralysis was determined 10 to 20 days and again 50 to 70 days after the onset of the disease.” In order for a polio case to qualify as polio or “paralytic poliomyelitis after 1954,” the patient had to “exhibit paralytic symptoms for at least 60 days after the onset of the disease.”12 13

The net effect of this change in policy was to make it much harder for a possible case of polio to be classified as polio. Predictably, the number of polio cases in the United States began to decline. In 1953, there were 35,592 confirmed cases of polio in the U.S. In 1954, there were 38,476. In 1955, there were 28,985.12 13

Arbitrary public health policy changes that have nothing to do with science but everything to do with smoke and mirrors was implemented during the polio era. It’s happening all over again.

    The CDC has done this with every vaccine. Measles-they never count the breakthrough cases, or the vaccine induced cases of measles. They also have removed from the Measles Pink Book the percentage of children the vax never takes , the percentage of vaxed that are contagious after the shot. In 2019 Dr. Stanley Plotkins finally admitted that the Measles vax gives a person an attenuated infection-meaning the person is contagious. The circulating strain or genotypes of Measles is called Genotype B3 and D8. The infamous Disney measles outbreak, most of the people infected had been either fully vaxed or 1 shot. Also, B3 was the predominate genotype. The Measles vax is A1. They thought, the CDC/FDA and pharma that the A1 strain could handle all the variants/mutations but in the same paper Plotkins wrote-B3 is not being neutralized by A1. If you really research the areas where the outbreaks are happening they are highly vaccinated. Pertussis-same thing, they don’t tell parents or the public that the shot hasn’t worked in decades, has like COVD, created a new variant/mutation called Bordetella Pertussis and the shot just eliminates the cough. The person is still infected and contagious according to the FDA.

    What you are seeing in the MSM now that breakthrough cases are becoming public is how the CDC rolls. They change the gameboard by manipulating the data and then their PR arm of the agency goes to work. The PR around the shot has always been misleading with the help of the MSM who takes their orders from the CDC. Articles are not written by news reporters & journalist but by a little know arm of the CDC-the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). They create disinformation on a scale that must make the CIA jealous. People in this arm of the CDC, as proudly stated by the CDC, have gone on to occupy key positions in the overall medical cartel: Surgeons General; CDC directors; medical school deans and professors; medical foundation executives; drug-company and insurance executives; state health officials; MEDICAL EDITORS AND REPORTERS IN MEDIA OUTLETS. —Power, at key junctures.
    It’s a loyal insider’s club. They collaborate to float prime-cut, A-number-one cover stories of extraordinary dimensions. They invent medical reality out of thin air. (Jon Rapport)

    As more breakthrough cases are made public, as more people suffer from blood clots, heart attacks, as more teens suffer from GBS, strokes and heart inflammation-the media information will become more manipulative and scarier to convince people these are coincidences not connected to the vaccine. This is how they have always rolled. But they couldn’t get away with it without using neurolinguistic language –ANTI-VAX and MISINFORMATION in the headings of articles, in the first paragraph and peppered throughout the articles or interviews. In other word, BRAINWASHING the masses. Edward Bernays would be proud.

      To clarify. It’s Genotype A*, not A1. Here is the list of mutations or variants which seems to be the word used when referring to virus changes. Variants sounds less menacing more manageable than mutations.

      A*, B2, B3, C1, C2, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D9, D10, D11, G2, G3, H1, H2

      *All vaccine strains (e.g. Moraten, Edmonston-Zagreb) are genotype A.

      During 2018, four genotypes were identified by global surveillance:

      B3, D4, D8, H1

    If 7 out of 9 players were asymptomatic but tested positive, we are likely seeing the huge level of inaccuracy that is a part of the most widely used PCR test, even according to the WHO. Many doctors have stated that this form of testing is highly inaccurate, and also that asymptomatic “carriers” are not the spreaders of this virus. Let’s provide the public with the science that shows the importance of keeping our D3 levels optimized at 80-100, since 80% of Americans are highly deficient in this pro-hormone nutrient that is absolutely necessary for an optimally functioning immune system.
    Hundreds of studies validate this, but there is no money in prevention.
    Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, Dr. Larry Palevsky, Dr. David Brownstein, Dr. Carrie Madej, and Dr. Lee Merritt, along with many other medical doctors and researchers confirm that a healthy immune system will handle this virus for over 99% of those who come in contact with it, and without the huge risks of these mRNA drugs which are not truly vaccines. We will not even know the long term effects for years to come.
    It is truly criminal that the FDA And CDC are permitting these unapproved EUA drugs with unknown long term effects to be given to our children when they have a 99.99% survival rate from this viral infection.
    Children’s Health Defense has petitioned the FDA to end the use of these EUA drugs since we DO have safe and effective treatments available, and truly have NO need for “vaccines” that are in reality a form of dangerous gene therapy.

    The CDC (commie drug czars) are flat out wrong. The science of injections cannot guarantee that anyone will be protected from anything, including death, for any reason. It’s all based on RRR, or relative risk reduction where your risk of getting sick or dying is relative to whether or not the control group got sick. In any trial, this can be controlled by using healthier, or lower risk participants verses those with greater risk. Seldom is an off-the-street group ever used for any drug trial.

    If I don’t get an injection and don’t get sick or die, they I didn’t need an injection.
    If I don’t get an injection, and get sick or die, there is no way to absolutely prove that by getting the injection the result would be different.
    If I get an injection and don’t get sick or die, there is no proof that by not getting the injection the same results wouldn’t occur.
    If I get the injection and get sick or die, there may be proof that it caused my death, but no proof that if I wouldn’t have gotten the injection, I wouldn’t have gotten sick or died anyway.

    When you choose one path to follow, you get what you get. Since you didn’t choose any other path to follow, you cannot know what the outcome might have been since you didn’t go down that path. You can guess and estimate and fantasize where other options might have led you, but never know with exactness.

    Pharma wants you to believe that by choosing their path, you are always protected, healthier and your life has been saved. There are usually alternatives to this choice, unless perhaps you are on your death bed or in a life or death situation, that can even provide better results with less risks for severe reactions and complications, especially long term, from the usage of drugs. There have been few studies that assess the longer term damages that drugs cause. And there will be damage to your body…just what the paper inserts that are supposed to be provided with every drug they want to put into your body tell you. Those are the risks.

    The CDC is lying when they say the injections have been proven safe and effective. We need at least 5-10 years or longer of exact surveillance to make that relative assessment, not a few months. This is true, especially with experimental injections that are determined to rumble like a gang street fight with your innate immune system.

    Of course vaccinated people test positive for COVID. They’ve just been inoculated with an attenuated(weakened) COVID virus. It’s also why so many are dying. Inoculations are directly into the blood stream, bypassing some of the body’s defenses, i.e. Sinuses, mucus membranes, saliva. Remember what Bill Gares said about vaccines being an effective way to reduce the worlds population. That’s right, he’s also heavily invested in vaccines. And it gets better. People who never had COVID before, will spread it around once they get inoculated with that attenuated COVID virus, just like people who caught COVID the old fashioned way. It’s called “shedding”, and all masks accomplish is to make us rebreathe our own bacteria-laden exhaust, needlessly taxing our immune systems. The Biblical God gave us that immune system and fresh air, no vaccines required, no boosters required, no depopulation required, and no stupid masks required.

    It’s worth remembering that those who are coming down with COVID-19, vaccinated or not, may or may not have coronavirus. The PCR test doesn’t test for active viral infection, only for RNA fragments, which may come from the SARS-COV-2 virus, past or present, or from other viruses.
    Hence a positive test tells us nothing about the presence of this virus, and can’t tell us whether we have COVID-19, due to this virus, or a syndrome similar to COVID-19, but due to something else. Hence all this data reveals is the CDC’s desire to whitewash the data to make the vaccine look better. It says nothing about the virus, contagion, or the efficacy of the vaccine. Vaccine efficacy can’t be assessed without a clear benchmark by which to determine whether someone is infected with the virus.

    B.C., I completely agree with in what you have to say about Bill Gates, masks, inoculations in general, and our God-given immune systems. I’m also not at all in favor of the COVID vaccine and am highly concerned about side effects from it, both immediate and long-term. However, there is such an incredible amount of misinformation out there that I feel I must mention that the COVID vaccine isn’t really a vaccine in the normal sense of the word. While I’m not particularly in favor of vaccines, whether or not they are made from a live attenuated virus, the COVID “vaccine” is a completely different type of inoculation. No COVID virus, alive or dead, is in this “vaccine”. The short story is that it manipulates the genetic make-up of your cells, prompting them to create spiked proteins similar to the natural COVID infection. As much as I don’t particularly like live attenuated virus vaccines because of the viral shedding and particularly the poisonous adjuvants used to goad the immune system into creating antibodies, that traditional style of vaccine would actually be much more preferable to what we have with the COVID “vaccine”. The COVID vaccine doesn’t contain any of the virus, but does cause your immune system to ramp up exponentially while our cells are genetically altered to create supposed immunity. I am also concerned about viral shedding from vaccinated people, but in this case it isn’t the natural or even lab-created strain of the COVID virus, but these artificially induced spike proteins.

      “The Beijing-based biopharmaceutical company Sinovac is behind the CoronaVac, an inactivated vaccine. It works by using killed viral particles to expose the body’s immune system to the virus without risking a serious disease response. By comparison the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines being developed in the West are mRNA vaccines. “

    I think people have to start asking themselves questions. Why is the government seemingly demanding people take this vaccine?
    Why did they prevent the use of hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin in the early stage of the vaccine when Fauci was well aware these treatments were proven effective, yet, he ignored their use and thousands died?
    Why isn’t the government promoting vitamin D, zinc and vitamin C to build up your own immunity?
    The media, CDC, FDA etc keep calling this a vaccine, it is not a vaccine, it does not prevent you from getting or transmitting COVID. That being the case, why is EVERYONE PUSHING us to take something that simply doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do?
    Why would we need a passport for this and not for measles, smallpox or any other vaccine, why this one when it’s not even a vaccine?

    I am not a scientist, but I have read a lot about the COVID subject. My understanding is that the “mRNA vaccine ” enters the cells. Due to reverse transcriptase, the RNA becomes part of your DNA. So, it is therefore in the egg and in the sperm and is carried on to future children to then be passed on to their children. With unknown consequences. Am I correct?
