CDC Admits Crushing Rights of Naturally Immune Without Proof They Transmit the Virus
After formal demand, the CDC concedes it does not have proof of a single instance of a naturally immune individual spreading the virus.
You would assume that if the CDC was going to crush the civil and individual rights of those with natural immunity by having them expelled from school, fired from their jobs, separated from the military, and worse, the CDC would have proof of at least one instance of an unvaccinated, naturally immune individual transmitting the COVID-19 virus to another individual. If you thought this, you would be wrong.
My firm, on behalf of ICAN, asked the CDC for precisely this proof (see below). ICAN wanted to see proof of any instance in which someone who previously had COVID-19 became reinfected with and transmitted the virus to someone else. The CDC’s incredible response is that it does not have a single document reflecting that this has ever occurred. Not one. (See below.)
In contrast, there are endless documents reflecting cases of vaccinated individuals becoming infected with and transmitting the virus to others. Such as this study. And this study. And this study. And this study. It goes on and on…
But it gets worse. The CDC’s excuse for not having a shred of evidence of the naturally immune transmitting the virus is that “this information is not collected.” What?! No proof! But yet the CDC is actively crushing the rights of millions of naturally immune individuals in this country if they do not get the vaccine on the assumption they can transmit the virus. But despite clear proof the vaccinated spread the virus, the CDC lifts restrictions on the vaccinated?! That is dystopian.
The facts about natural immunity are simple - see this link for exchange with CDC regarding same. Every single peer reviewed study in this exchange with the CDC has found that the naturally immune have far greater than 99% protection from having COVID-19, and this immunity does not wane. In contrast, the COVID-19 vaccine provides, at best, 95% protection and this immunity wanes rapidly. I am no mathematician, but a constant 99% seems preferable to a 95% that quickly drops. And, while the vaccinated readily transmit the virus, not so for the naturally immune.
The lesson yet again is not that health authorities should never make mistakes. They will. It happens. The lesson is that civil and individual rights should never be contingent upon a medical procedure. Everyone, the naturally immune or otherwise, who wants to get vaccinated and boosted should be free to do so. But nobody should be coerced by the government to partake in any medical procedure.
These are relative numbers, the absolute numbers have never been above 2% and a lot of research is now showing that the waning immunity from the shots means we are well into negative absolute numbers at this point.
An even greater and more unforgivable sin, in my opinion, is that in many countries they are saying that natural immunity is only valid for your "health pass" for six months. I'm not complying with health passes anyway because they are an absolute disgrace, but to then add insult to injury by gaslighting people with pseudoscience is appalling.
Go ask your doctor for a Hepatitis B shot or an MMR vaccine and they will likely test your blood first to see if you already have immunity. But yet they not only do *not* do this for covid, they actually DISCOURAGE it! I'm a member of Kaiser and while I can request an antibody test, they literally have on their website that they don't recommend getting one.
You'd think the health authorities are just being dense on this matter, but someone wrote up a great long piece about why the powers that be know this whole thing is a farce. Here's my summary (since the original is long) and I'll link to the original as well:
