There was no reason to believe that corona virus vaccines were going to have a higher efficacy than the Influenza vaccines. Which in a good year is 50%. The only upside from those dismal number is that more SARs Cov 2 infections are asymptomatic / mild and very low morality rates < 55. Compared with flu. So low protection against a mild disease. The big downside is very high rates of adverse effects amount the old and the frail.
So the vaccine was never going to make SARS 2 “go away”. No matter what the science by press release said.
The only question left is will the governments try to hide this very low efficacy rate by trying to force the vaccination rate way above the base needed for a not very infectious disease, less than 50%, on the assumption that this might reduce the number of serious cases that end up in the ICU. Which it wont because the patient that are mostly likely to end up in the ICU are those with the highest probability of acquiring SARs 2 as a Hospital Acquired Pneumonia.
So even more insanity. By this stage assume all government policy is based on a reckless disregard for your health and well-being and all about saving the skins of the government and high public health officials who have made all these terrible decision.
Because another thing you can be 100% certain of. By this stage the government and senior public health officials all know that over 500 old people died immediately after vaccination starting in mid January. The reports will have been circulated by this stage, from the taoiseach’s office and down at least one level.
