In Austria, seven-day incidences by vaccination status and age group are published for the first time. A seven-day value of almost 200 makes it clear that the incidence in unvaccinated people is continuously increasing. It is highest among 18- to 59-year-olds, as is the case Ages reportedly the agency for health and food security. Among the vaccinated, the incidence is more than five times lower at 34.88.
For Martin Moder (33), Viennese molecular biologist and author of popular science books, the figures make it clear: “We could end this pandemic at any time,” the researcher writes on Twitter. “It’s the unvaccinated people who make the numbers rise.” And the scientist adds: “Even if there is blurring, if nobody notices anything about the virus, the pandemic is over.”
Moder admits that the numbers are increasing in some places despite vaccinations. But the situation is not comparable to previous waves, which is also suggested by data from other countries. Moder: “Infection in vaccinated people does not mean the same thing as infection in unvaccinated people. Vaccinated people rarely get seriously ill. “
Is Vaccine Picking a Cause of Israel’s Vaccination Paradox?
Israeli statistics, like that, also address the paradox of vaccinated hospital patients “Mirrors” reported. The answer to the question, why there are more vaccinated Covid patients again, is very simple. The higher the vaccination rate, the greater the proportion of those vaccinated among hospital patients – simply because there are more vaccinated than unvaccinated.
If the vaccination did not work, roughly the same number of vaccinated people as unvaccinated people would have to be treated in hospital. In Israel, however, the proportion of those who have been vaccinated is 67.5 percent lower than that of those who have not been vaccinated. The vaccination thus reduces the risk of having to go to hospital with Covid-19 by a good two thirds.
According to a study published in July, there are hardly any vaccine breakthroughs in healthy people. But the number of antibodies decreases over time after vaccination. This so-called vaccination picking could possibly lead to the fact that vaccinated people become infected in rare cases and in even rarer cases become seriously ill. (kes)
