The day after the US set a pandemic high for new cases at over 1 million, Joe Biden took to the airwaves to tell more lies. This time, he went too far.
Biden emphasized that this is “still a pandemic of the unvaccinated.” Repeatedly, as if relling a lie enough will make it true. But nothing is farther from the truth.
To believe this is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” you would have to believe there are more unvaccinated people now than there were in January of 2020. But in January 2020, only about 30,000 Americans had been vaccinated, leaving 330 million unvaccinated. Yet, with almost no Americans vaccinated, the biggest one-day total for new infections was 251,000.
With over 70 percent of the US population vaccinated, how could we possibly set the all-time record?
I’ll tell you how. Two factors:
96% of infections are among the vaccinated.
Vaccines have negative efficacy after 60 days.
Fully Vaccinated Account for 96% of Omicron Cases
A study by a the Robert Koch Institute, a German government research organization, found that 96 percent of omicron cases were among fully vaccinated or vaccinates and boosted people. Only 4 percent of cases were among the unvaccinated.
Seventy percent of Germans are fully vaccinated. So let’s do a little math, shall we?
If you have 1,000 Germans, 700 will be at least fully vaccinated and 300 will be less than fully vaccinated.
If 100 of them get omicron, 96 will come from the fully vaxed group and 4 will be unvaccinated. That means the vaccinated have a 9.6% chance of catching Covid, while the unvaccinated have a 0.4% chance of catching it. It looks like this:
The vaccinated are 24 times more likely to catch omicron than the unvaccinated.
If this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, the unvaccinated seem not to be participating.
Or Joe Biden is a liar.
