The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the U.S. government’s major operating components, an agency under the Department of Health and Human Services.
The CDC’s mission statement reads, “CDC increases the health security of our nation. … CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats.”
The agency also pledges to the American people that it will “base all public health decisions on the highest quality scientific data that is derived openly and objectively.”
Well, COVID-19 has been the nation’s largest health threat for the past two years. It has had a huge impact on the lives of every American. During those two years, thousands of scientists and health-care researchers have studied COVID and accumulated a huge amount of information on the disease.
We’ve now gradually come to realize that the most effective force that would eventually end the pandemic is natural immunity. Even Bill Gates has admitted that “the virus itself, particularly the variant called Omicron, is a type of vaccine.” With the rapid spread of Omicron and with many asymptomatic infections, millions of people have developed natural immunity, which is driving COVID-19 out of its pandemic stage and into endemicity.
With its $15.4 billion annual budget, one would think the CDC would have done a good job providing taxpayers with data on COVID-19. If cutting edge research is too challenging for the CDC, they at least should have provided the public with basic surveillance data, such as:
- Who was infected with SARS-CoV-2, when, which variant, and what were the symptoms?
- Who was vaccinated, with which vaccine, when, and were there any side effects?
- Who was vaccinated, got infected, when, and recovered?
- Who was never vaccinated, and never infected (never tested, or never tested positive)?
The CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) published on Jan. 28 presented some very interesting information from California and New York comparing immunity against COVID-19 from four groups of people, indicating natural immunity alone provides the best protection.
Since then, I have been anxiously waiting for more data, as there are 48 other states, and even for California and New York, important data like this should be updated monthly, if not weekly.
To my surprise and disappointment, I have not been able to find any more data on natural immunity from the MMWR since Jan. 28. I am sure they have the data—they just don’t want to share it with us.
I’m beginning to wonder if CDC stands for Center for Data Control.
Those Recovered From COVID Are Best Protected
On Mar. 1, the scientific journal Clinical Infectious Diseases published a peer-reviewed article titled “Risk of reinfection after seroconversion to SARS-CoV-2: A population-based propensity-score matched cohort study.” This Swiss study “observed a 94% reduction in the hazard of being infected among SARS-CoV-2 seropositive participants, when compared to seronegative controls, >8 months after serology assessment.”
This level of protection (natural immunity) from SARS-CoV-2 infection (94 percent) is comparable to that of the Pfizer vaccine but lasts longer (eight months and counting).
In a peer-reviewed article published in the journal Science Immunology on Jan. 25, scientists from Oregon Health & Science University showed in raw data that antibodies derived from previous COVID-19 infection are at least 10 times more potent than that generated by vaccination alone. They still concluded, however, that “Vaccination is highly effective at preventing the most severe outcomes from COVID-19 and should be provided regardless of previous infection status and age.” I’m confused by their conclusion, but happy to see the raw data.
Similarly, in my Feb. 5 article “Pandemic Lessons Learned: Scientific Debate Silenced, With Deadly Consequences,” I wrote: “Now, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control admits in a report released on Jan. 28 that natural immunity against COVID-19 is superior to any of the available vaccine regimens.”
A reader commented that she “looked all over the CDC site and could find no such info. … Now who’s being ‘subjective’?”
The reader was right. I should have explained in my article that the conclusion I drew was not a direct quote but rather my own summary based on the CDC’s raw data.
The CDC’s Jan. 28 report included the following chart but neglected to provide a summary comparing protection between vaccinated people without natural immunity and unvaccinated people who recovered from COVID and now have natural immunity.
It seems that it’s necessary to dive a little deeper into the data to elaborate my point, as the authors of the report did not conclude the very obvious. Please bear with me.
The above CDC chart shows data from California on protection against COVID-19 collected from four groups of people between May 30, 2021, and Nov. 20, 2021:
1) The unvaccinated, with no previous COVID-19 diagnosis (top solid line)
2) The vaccinated, with no previous COVID-19 diagnosis (broken line below the solid line)
3) The unvaccinated, with previous diagnosis
4) The vaccinated, with previous diagnosis
It is obvious that the lines representing 3) and 4) are superimposing on one another, indicating that vaccination had virtually no impact on protection when a person has recovered from COVID-19 infection, meaning natural immunity dominates protection over vaccination to a level that made vaccination irrelevant.
Although the biggest difference lies between the unvaccinated with no previous infection and everyone else, the second biggest difference, however, is between the “Vaccinated, no previous COVID-19 diagnosis” line (vaccine immunity) and the “Unvaccinated, previous COVID-19 diagnosis” line (natural immunity), with the natural immunity line having a much lower “hazard rate,” meaning better protection.
The report also revealed similar findings for New York state.
Is CDC Censoring Data on Natural Immunity?
The CDC’s MMWR is a weekly report. The chart above is part of the report for the last week of January, and it was for only two of the 50 states, California and New York. When I was writing my Feb. 5 article, I thought that maybe it was a benign omission that the CDC did not conclude the obvious. For sure, more data would be coming from the CDC in February and March, I thought, as it would teach us so much more about natural immunity.
However, it hasn’t materialized. Since Jan. 28, there have been 10 MMWR reports published on the CDC website, totaling 29 articles in all. They cover topics ranging from vaccination by geographic locations, to vaccine confidence by sexual orientation, to isolation strategy for fully vaccinated NFL players, and so on. So far, the Jan. 28 report was the only one that included “unvaccinated, with previous diagnosis” in the data, and that’s unfortunate. All the other reports were to re-enforce the conclusion that vaccines are effective, with almost nothing about natural immunity. Here is a screenshot of the MMWR website:
For example, one of CDC’s latest reports, published on Mar. 18, includes the following chart:
Here, hospitalization data was plotted against 1) unvaccinated people, 2) vaccinated without a booster, 3) vaccinated with a booster. There is no information about people who had recovered from COVID-19. In other words, information on natural immunity is censored.
According to the CDC’s own information, the United States has had about 80 million COVID-19 cases. The vast majority of patients recovered from the disease. This huge part of the U.S. population now enjoys natural immunity. This is also true for Canada and many other parts of the world.
It seems that the CDC is avoiding anything and everything related to natural immunity. But why?
Maybe the CDC is like Bill Gates, who said at the Munich Security Conference last month: “Sadly, the virus itself, particularly the variant called Omicron, is a type of vaccine. That is, it creates both B-cell and T-cell immunity.” What he meant was it would be a sad thing if it is natural immunity, not the vaccines, that defeat COVID-19.
Let the CDC and Mr. Gates feel sad. The rest of us are ready to move on with our lives.

The CDC is corrupt and not only lies, they skew data and do not keep people safe. People are dying and injured because of the CDC. Anyone who believes anything the CDV says is living in an alternate reality.
The pentagon needs to get this information so that it will stop kicking military people out that have natural immunity but are unvaccinated.
In Washington state, the Department of Health (DOH) introduced a new report in January 2022: Covid-19 Reinfections. Here is a link to the press release: https://doh.wa.gov/sites/default/files/2022-02/22-005-Reinfection_Report_NewsRelease.pdf
The original report broke reinfections down by vaccination status, as the press release states. After the initial Jan. 6, 2022 report, the weekly report was not updated due to “technical issues” until Feb. 2, 2022. The “technical issue” was removing the data by vaccination status. Since Feb. 2, 2022, we have gotten weekly updates of the reinfection report, minus the data on vaccination status (natural and hybrid immunity). That data is hidden yet again. Also, all prior reports have been scrubbed from the DOH website, so I am thankful I have been downloading and saving each report!
Here are the data by vaccination status in WA state (Sept. 1 – Dec. 26, 2021). (During this time interval, reinfections accounted for 1.7% of all new cases):
Among 260,116 people with a primary infection:
• 80,438 (30.9%) were fully vaccinated
• 9,767 (3.8%) were partially vaccinated
• 169,911 (65.3%) were unvaccinated
Among 4,404 people with a reinfection:
• 1,583 (35.9%) were fully vaccinated
• 181 (4.1%) were partially vaccinated
• 2,640 (59.9%) were unvaccinated
Here is the link to the most recent report: https://doh.wa.gov/sites/default/files/2022-02/421-024-ReportedReinfections.pdf?uid=624b2d9342daf
Data from the March 30, 2022 report is as follows:
Since September 1, 2021 in Washington state:
• A total of 41,730 people had a reported reinfection.
• Of those with reported reinfection, 925 (2.2%) people were hospitalized.
• Of those with reported reinfection, 88 (0.2%) people died.
Between Dec. 26, 2021 and March 20, 2022, there were 37,326 reinfections. During the same time interval, there were 610,968 new cases (PCR and antigen). Reinfections account for 6% of new cases between Dec 26, 2021 and March 20, 2022. What part of those cases are vaccinated/hybrid immunity and what part are unvaccinated/natural immunity? Hidden.
And one more thing…”reinfection” is defined as at least a 90-day interval between infections. Less than that it is not counted.
Since the beginning of COVID-2019 everything CDC did was to promote Vaccine.
Even before , CDC recommendations 4 polio 💉💉💉💉 for a contagious disease that is spread through unsanitary water in under deleloped countries.
This will shed light on this topic from the CDC itself.
WHAT IS THE CDC FOUNDATION?
Established by Congress, the CDC Foundation helps the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention do more, faster, by forging effective partnerships between CDC and corporations, foundations, organizations and individuals to fight threats to health and safety. The CDC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity.
My husband had a trip to ER for an unrelated condition. While he was there they insisted that he have a PCR test due to a slightly elevated temperature. They reported to us that he was covid positive and that he had omicron. When I asked HOW they tested for the variant I was told…
“Oh, we don’t actually test for the variant we just report that you have whatever the most common variant circulating as we have been told to do”.
With procedures like this, how could anyone ever report ANYTHING with certainty.
