In his latest bid to promote Covid-19 jabs, White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci upped his pandemic warnings and cautioned vaccinated individuals about an even “worse variant” that could come after Delta.
Those who remain unvaccinated, Fauci claimed in a Sunday interview with MSNBC, are responsible for the coronavirus mutating. This has led to the Delta variant, which health officials have continuously warned is partly behind the mass rise in cases and could lead to another surge in the fall.
“There’s a tenet that everybody knows in virology: a virus will not mutate unless you allow it to replicate,” Fauci said. “Fortunately for us, the vaccines do quite well against Delta, particularly in protecting you from severe disease.”
But if you give the virus the chance to continue to change, you’re leading to a vulnerability that we might get a worse variant, and then that will impact not only the unvaccinated, that will impact the vaccinated because that variant could evade the protection of the vaccine.
The claims of America’s controversial top doc are not based in science as recent studies have shown the virus mutates in vaccinated as well as unvaccinated. Fauci’s claims that the vaccine is doing well against the Delta strain in this instance is a false statistic because the top doctor is referring to symptoms and not replication, which leads to mutations and vaccine evasion aka immune escape. While relating it to fast-spreading chickenpox CDC recently described the virus’ Delta strain as being spread in vaccinated at the same rate as in unvaccinated.
CNN in a recent article submitted that vaccination actually leads to the rise of new strains of the deadly Covid-19 virus. Citing new research published in Nature Scientific Reports, the CNN article mentioned the need to maintain other non pharmaceutical means of disease control in addition to vaccination.
“(CNN)Vaccination alone won’t stop the rise of new variants and in fact could push the evolution of strains that evade their protection, researchers warned Friday.”
In contrast to the claims of Dr. Fauci, the article mentioned that with increased vaccination, vaccine-resistant strains spread over the original strains, this being one of the reasons masks have been reintroduced to the vaccinated, many of whom are asymptomatically carrying the virus as a silent laboratory for mutation.
Quoting the study, the CNN article further read:
“This means the vaccine resistant strain spreads through the population faster at a time when most people are vaccinated.”
‘“When most people are vaccinated, the vaccine-resistant strain has an advantage over the original strain,” Simon Rella of the Institute of Science and Technology Austria, who worked on the study, told reporters.’
“But if so-called non pharmaceutical interventions are maintained — such as mask use and social distancing — the virus is less likely to spread and change. “There is a chance to remove the vaccine resistant mutations from the population,” Rella said.”
“By having a situation where you vaccinate everybody, a vaccine-resistant mutant actually gains a selective advantage.”
The researchers reported, via studies conducted on a mathematical model.
“Vaccines must stop spread and not symptoms for them to reduce mutation and the immune escape phenomenon,” Dr. Perry Brimah, a molecular biologist told this paper. The CDC director recently professed that the current vaccines do not stop the spread of Covid-19 Delta strain.
“Our vaccines are working exceptionally well,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky tells @wolfblitzer. “They continue to work well for Delta, with regard to severe illness and death – they prevent it. But what they can't do anymore is prevent transmission." pic.twitter.com/s83YyBQqeh— The Situation Room (@CNNSitRoom) August 5, 2021
Meanwhile to promote mandatory vaccination by misleading and manipulating public image, the CDC has been noted to have set higher test threshold criteria for the reporting for sequencing and confirmation of variants in the vaccinated than the unvaccinated, which will lead to a lower count of Delta confirmed infections in vaccinated. 90% of new covid cases in the US are of the Delta strain.
Dr. Fauci who is known to flipflop, is expected to reverse this statement at a time soon in the near future.
