New Zealand Doctors Speaking out with Science
We refer to the “Ministry of Health position statement on the management of unvaccinated individuals in healthcare settings”, published on 18 November 2021. On page 3 is the following statement in bold letters:
“When there is high COVID-19 vaccine coverage (i.e., above 80 percent of eligible people are fully vaccinated), transmission is more likely to occur from a vaccinated than an unvaccinated individual.”MOH
We agree with this statement as it has been scientifically proven that vaccination does not prevent an individual from transmitting the ‘COVID-19 condition’ onto other individuals, vaccinated or not.
So it logically follows that if the proven science is the legal basis for this government’s new mandates (as is constantly claimed by their politicians), then unvaccinated individuals should not be discriminated against as is proposed by the government’s latest “Traffic Light” regulations, which are soon to come into force.
Very recent scientific evidence published in the European Journal of Epidemiology on 30th September 2021 proves that increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States.
” 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. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days.
The lack of a meaningful association between percentage population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases is further exemplified, for instance, by comparison of Iceland and Portugal. Both countries have over 75% of their population fully vaccinated and have more COVID-19 cases per 1 million people than countries such as Vietnam and South Africa that have around 10% of their population fully vaccinated.European Journal of Epidemiology
