Study Finds COVID Cases Unrelated to Vaccination Rates

Study Finds COVID Cases Unrelated to Vaccination Rates

As vaccines and mandates continue to be the primary means of combating COVID-19, findings from a recently published article demonstrate that COVID-19 cases across 68 countries and nearly 3,000 counties in the United States were unrelated to vaccination rates, indicating “a lack of meaningful association.”1

The international data, published in the European Journal of Epidemiology, was gathered from Our World in Data, which is an online research database updated daily. The 68 countries in the analysis were only included if the countries listed both second dose vaccine data and confirmed COVID-19 case data. The data also had to be within three days of Sept. 3, 2021 to represent the most up to date information at the time the analysis was conducted.

U.S. data was derived from the White House COVID-19 Team data. All 2,947 U.S counties were only included in the analysis if the counties reported a fully vaccinated population.

“No Discernable Relationship” Between Vaccines and COVID Cases

S.V. Subramanian and Akhil Kumar, authors of the article, state:

At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days. In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.1

U.S. county data indicates that there is no significant case decrease in counties with a higher percentage of the population fully vaccinated.

Countries With Vaccination Rates of  Under 10 Percent Have Less COVID Than Those With 75 Percent Vaccinated

The gathered data demonstrated that countries with vaccination rates over 75 percent, such as Portugal and Iceland, exhibited higher rates of COVID-19 than Vietnam and South Africa, where less than ten percent of the population is vaccinated.

According to the article, four of the top five U.S. counties with the highest vaccination rates ranging from 84.3 percent to 99.9 percent are identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as “high” transmission counties. Of the 57 counties that are classified as “low” transmission counties, 26.3 percent have a vaccination rate below 20 percent.

Obesity and Other Modifiable Risk Factors Should Be Addressed

The study authors state that sole reliance on vaccination as the primary strategy to combat COVID-19 should be re-examined and that other interventions and preventatives, both pharmacological and non-pharmacological, may need to be put in place.

The need for non-pharmacological interventions and preventatives echoes what many researchers, doctors, and others have been saying about the lack of general health guidance throughout the pandemic. Many research articles present data demonstrating an increased likelihood of complications related to COVID-19 when individuals have comorbidities, such as high blood pressure and obesity. The World Obesity Federation has shown that death rates from COVID-19 are ten times higher in countries where more than half of the population is overweight.2

According to the CDC, 73.6 percent of Americans are overweight, 42.5 percent are obese.3 Daniel Donner, MD, a physician at Novan’s Pediatric Clinic in North Carolina stated:

It feels like—at least in the messaging that I’ve seen—as though (obesity is) being treated as more of a footnote than anything else and something I feel like a lot of people have missed.4

Natural Immunity Stronger Than Vaccine-Induced Immunity

In their article,1 Subramanian and Kumar cite several studies which indicate that natural immunity may offer stronger immunity than the Pfizer vaccine and that the Pfizer vaccine is showing substantially lower efficacy in the real world compared to clinical trial data upon which the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and licensing approval was based. Pfizer clinical trial efficacy was noted as 96 percent, while a recent report released from the Ministry of Health in Israel demonstrates the vaccine efficacy to be only 39 percent.

Although vaccination may offer protection against severe hospitalization and death, the CDC has reported an increase from 0.01 percent to 9 percent for hospitalization and zero to 15.1 percent for death among those who are fully vaccinated.

Researchers from Columbia Public Health estimated that by the end of 2020, one in three Americans, or 103 million people, had contracted natural infection COVID-19.5

Last month, The Washington Post reported that more than 15 studies have demonstrated the power of natural immunity, suggesting that it is as good as or better than vaccine-induced immunity.6 Natural immunity to COVID is powerful. Policymakers seem afraid to say so. The Washington Post Sept. 15, 2021.) One of those articles includes a 700,000 person study from Israel which found that those who had contracted COVID-19 in the past were 27 times less likely to get a second asymptomatic infection than those who were vaccinated.

A previous Cleveland Clinic study that included healthcare workers found that none of the employees who had previously tested positive for COVID had been re-infected. The study concluded that those previously infected were unlikely to benefit from vaccination.7

Rejecting Natural Immunity Leads to “Damaged Credibility”

As John Hopkins Professor Marty Makary wrote in The Washington Post:

The incorrect hypothesis that natural immunity is unreliable has resulted in the loss of thousands of American lives, avoidable vaccine complications, and damaged the credibility of public health officials. Given the recent mandate announcement by the White House, it would be good for our public health leaders to show humility by acknowledging the hypothesis they repeatedly trumpeted was not only wrong, but it may be harmful.7

Last month, when Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), was asked whether natural immunity was equal to or better than the vaccine, he stated that he didn’t have a “firm answer” and that it was something that was going to need to be discussed “seriously.”8

Consideration for natural immunity was not in the sweeping nationwide mandates issued by the White House this summer, which affects 100. million Americans and requires for both private and public-sector employees to be vaccinated. In August, Department of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced a mandate for all military personnel. Punishments for those refusing to comply include administrative or non-judicial punishment, relief of duties, and potentially, dishonorable discharge.9

California Orders COVID Vaccine Mandates for Children

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced earlier this month that the state would now require the COVID-19 vaccine for children 12 years and older, which is the first COVID vaccine mandate in the country for children.

Subramanian and Kumar end their article calling for COVID vaccination policies to be implemented with humility and respect…

In summary, even as efforts should be made to encourage populations to get vaccinated it should be done so with humility and respect. Stigmatizing populations can do more harm than good. Importantly, other non-pharmacological prevention efforts needs [sic] to be renewed in order to strike the balance of learning to live with COVID-19 in the same manner we continue to live a 100 years later with various seasonal alterations of the 1918 Influenza virus.1

    One naturally wonders whether countries with Vaccination rates of under 10 percent do as much testing for the incidence of Covid as do those with 75 percent vaccinated. Without knowing the testing rates, statements about the number of cases seem pretty meaningless.

      Given the inaccurate PCR tests being run at 45 threshold cycles (CDC is scrapping them and admits they’re faulty) instead of at a recommended 25 cycles, I seriously doubt testing rates have as much impact as you think they do! A more likely scenario is that many third world countries are routinely given HCQ and/or IVM for malaria, etc… Just look at data out of India where some provinces are routinely being given these drugs and not the shots and have almost zero C-19, while the province next to them is relying solely on the shots and are spiking cases.

      That’s a great point! However the same goes for people using the same methods to push these vaccines as safe and effective. It’s very easy to interpret data to show whatever purpose is wanted. So if it’s meaningless in this case, its definitely meaningless in terms of pushing vaccines.

      Data of all cause mortality does not lie as easily as the PCR Test does. The facts are that the vaccine is largely a failure as nations ahead of the USA in vaccination rates, such as Isreal and the UK report the majority of deaths now occurring are in the fully vaccinated. It begs the question, was it all worth it? For the pharma investors, it’s a resounding yes. For those who were led to believe that the vaccine would magically lead us out of the Pandemic, not so much.

    Fabulous, powerful article! I’m tempted to email it to my Hard-Core True Believer Covidian Cult family members. But I won’t do so, because they are 100 percent immune to any information, no matter how well-sourced and footnoted, that runs even slightly counter to the official narrative proclaimed by Big Pharma, Big Medicine, and the Ministry of Truth (doublespeak for the Propaganda Ministry, aka the mainstream media in all of its many manifestations). They will just have to die of covid (despite being fully vaxed, of course!) or of adverse reactions to their covid booster injections. They’ll be first in line when the boosters are authorized for their demographic. Good riddance to them. I have no sympathy for them, nor will I when they die.

    My obvious anger is due to the fact that I was extremely sickened by the Pfizer covid poison, and half a year later I’m living with lasting, serious injuries from it. My family has “canceled” me. They refuse to acknowledge what has happened to me or to even begin to question their absolute, blind adherence to the brainwashing they have fallen for, hook, line, and sinker. They’re exactly like the true believers who drank the poisoned Kool-Aid in the Jonestown cult mass suicide.

      yikes, how awful. Please know that there is naturapathic help from vax injuries, especially using classical homeopathy. A good start is to contact the team in NYC for help: https://www.homeopathyhelpnow.com They have treated about 1500 covid cases and have moved on to long-haul cases and vax injuries as well. I’ve also seen reports of cases responding well to a few doses of ivermectin–have you looked at FLCCC for info? Best to you..

    It appears to be a well done study given the limits of the data available. I though Israel had a much higher vaccination rate, are they considering people with only 2 shots who are due for a third unvaccinated? A plot of % obese versus cases might show a stronger trend.

    Thank you for this!! It validates everything I felt was “off” about the US handling of Co-Vid vaccinations.

    As a side note; Pfizer, if you merely google their history, is known for data manipulation and saying their medicines work for illnesses when they don’t. WHY is this not talked about as a possibility NOW? Once a cheater, always a cheater, so they say 😉

    I’m very glad I’m homeschooling my children now that I see all these vaccine mandates. Children have less of a chance of dying from covid than they do going for a car ride. I am okay if they catch covid and gain natural immunity, which may be much better for them, than some iffy vaccine people aren’t even allowed to QUESTION without being attacked. I feel strongly for all those parents who cannot homeschool and are forced to inject their children with drugs they do not trust. It’s a seriously evil turn in America, in my eyes.

    Hope America has a reality check really soon.

    What testing method is being used to determine cases? If it’s still the PCR test, than most cases are fake. If you don’t know by now, the mRNa injections are not meant to do anything about protecting anyone against covid.

    The purpose of these injections are to maim, murder and/or present biological and nano-particle devices into the body. Several scientists have found proof of man made mechanical/communication type devices in the vials before injections. the pastent trail leads to these types of devices and other “control” protocols.

    The pandemic, the fake vaccines, the cases and all the rest of the nonsense is all meant to create fear and acceptance of biological agents by mankind….these are all diversions for the real agenda…the destruction of mankind as it is now. Those that might survive this holocaust will be robotic in nature, not human any longer.

      Of course it should but not in this evil bizarro world. Remember, they used the false positive 45 cycle PCR tests to prime the sheeple into believing that symptomless, therefore healthy, people were pathogenic dangers to the public. This set the stage for blaming the unvaccinated for infection so that the vaccinated would demand protection from the unvaccinated.

    If it’s true about 100 million Americans already got exposed to covid 19 naturally at the end of 2020, why would they begin mass vaccinations in 2021? If they continue to vaccinate more people, are we going to see more breakthrough covid cases? The lady who works in the grocery store got covid last winter 2020. She was really sick for about a week. She developed antibodies in her system. When her parents got the experimental covid vaccine, they got sick for a few days. She was with her parents for the entire time. However, she did NOT get sick from her parents because she has the antibodies!!! She was tested negative after her stay with her parents. She felt fine afyerwards. How Dr. Fauci would explain it? Come on, it doesn’t need to be discussed seriously. What kind of doctor is he?? He’s a corrupt. Its not unfounded comment.

    In those fully vaccinated countries they have relaxed mask and distancing rules, and schools have gone back. Together with the fact that many in vaccinated populations probably have a false sense of security and are being less careful. They can still carry Covid and pass it on. The important thing is that vaccines prevent excess deaths.
    Were these cases the unvaccinated who had got it for 1st, 2nd time etc. Who done the testing and how accurate was it in each place. Not very scientific at all.

    Great article! The world continues to be an experiment with this new type of vaccine or biologic. Only time will tell if it truly “safe and effective”! It certainly isn’t for over 13,000 Americans who have suffered consequences and reported their side effect in the VAERS system. I don’t recall the number of American’s who have died after receiving one or two shots, but I know at least 3 people (2 young in their early 30’s and two older – 50’s and 60’s) that suffered sudden heart failure shortly after taking the vax…correlation??? Also know of a very healthy 60 year old that was athletic and full of life until he ended up in the hospital for 2 months after 2nd vax…correlation???
    The sheeple will be the experiment, sadly.

    The point of a vaccine is to protect yourself from virus or disease. The vaxxed and unvaxxed on the Covifd 19 virus can be caught and transmitted by either. So for people to say me must protect patients and fellow workers by taking the jab is BS. If both can catch and transmit the disease then we have some of the dummiest scientist and BRANDON to say we must protect everyone. Any adult that don’t want a chemical injected into their body has the right to say yes or no. What happen to MY BODY,MY CHOICE. If you don’t take the jab , you know the risk, and its only the person that is unvaccinated that is at a higher risk themselves, they do not spread or catch the virus any faster than avaccinated person. The latest report shows the risk of death per million for the jab, this is known deaths, not someone that dies from hearth attack,stroke, or organ failure a few days later. KNOWN DEATHS, Pfizer 24%,,Astrazenica 21%, J&J 19%. I will take my risk with my natural immunity since i have had covid and recovered. Also the %s above does not show life changing side effects

I can certainly relate to your experience with your family. My only explanation comes down to the realization that we are living in the Twilight Zone.
