New research from the CDC, the American version of the RIVM, shows that vaccinated people can transmit the virus just as easily as unvaccinated people and that they have the same viral load. This applies to the Delta variant. The conclusion is that we must learn to live with this virus and that the message around vaccines should be that … a serious illness help prevent. Neither more nor less.
The delta variant of coronavirus appears to cause more serious illnesses than previous variants and spreads just as easily as chickenpox, according to an internal CDC document that also says officials must “recognize that the war has changed.”
The document is an internal slide presentation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and has passed into the hands of The Washington Post. It narrates the struggle of the country’s largest public health agency to convince the public to take vaccination and prevention measures, including masks, as the number of cases in the United States increases and new research suggests that vaccinated people could spread the virus. to spread.
The document is an urgent call to the agency, which reveals that the agency knows it needs to renew its message to people to emphasize vaccination as the best defense against such a contagious variant that it almost looks like a different, faster virus. then skip the Ebola or the common cold.
It is important to note, according to the paper, that research shows that delta-infected vaccinated individuals can transmit the virus as easily as unvaccinated individuals. In addition, vaccinated people infected with delta have a viral load comparable to unvaccinated people infected with the variant.
One of the slides in the presentation states that there is a higher risk of hospitalization and death in older age groups than in younger people, regardless of vaccination status. Another slide estimates that there are 35,000 symptomatic infections a week among 162 million vaccinated Americans.
The presentation highlights the daunting task facing CDC, according to the Post. “We should continue to highlight the proven effectiveness of vaccines in preventing serious illness and death, recognizing that milder advanced infections may not be so rare after all, and vaccinated people transmit the virus. it must move the goals of success in the public eye ”.
Because what the CDC is asking for now is to tell citizens that vaccines do not prevent disease or prevent the virus from being transmitted to other people, but vaccines prevent a serious course of the disease or at least limit the chance of getting it.
“We really need to shift to the goal of preventing serious illness and disability and other serious consequences, and not worrying about every particle of virus detected in a person’s nose,” said Kathleen Neuzil, a vaccine expert at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Maryland. medicine. “It’s hard, but I think we have to accept that this virus won’t go away.”
And so the playing field is changed again. Because the CDC also states in the internal document that this means that the measures should also apply to vaccinated people. Whether vaccinated or not, this mouthpiece should be put on. And they will certainly also push the distance of 1.5 meters.
