Could the vaccines increase the spread of infection?
At the beginning of the pandemic, we were told that the new virus SARS-CoV-2 spread extremely fast and gave rise to the incurable disease COVID-19. Vaccines were needed to stop the virus.
When the vaccines came into use, it turned out that they were not there to protect against infection but to alleviate the symptoms of those infected.
The vaccines could increase the spread of infection
If the vaccinated who are infected do not get symptoms or only mild symptoms, they are not likely to seek treatment. The virus can therefore grow undetected. The vaccinated believe that they are healthy, and they are considered healthy by the authorities. If they receive vaccine passes, they can spread viruses in restaurants, hospitals, schools, workplaces, and travel.
Here is an example from the United States: “In July 2021, after several major public events in a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, 469 COVID-19 cases were identified among Massachusetts residents who had travelled to the city during July 3-17; 346 (74%) occurred in fully vaccinated individuals.”
The measures that the authorities are now planning, such as vaccinating young people and children and introducing vaccine passports, may actually increase the spread of infection.
