Scientific study from Israel shows natural immunity superior to Covid vaccine against Delta variant

The study found that fully vaccinated but uninfected people were significantly more likely to get infected than people who had previously been infected and recovered from the disease.

Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19, Scientific study from Israel shows natural immunity superior to Covid vaccine against Delta variant

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – The global debate of Covid mRNA vaccine mandates and passports has ignited social media, policymakers, and policies that impact just nearly every aspect of public life.

According to a new Israeli study, the natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

It’s the largest real-world observational study so far to compare natural and vaccine-induced immunity to SARS-CoV-2, according to its leaders.

For many infectious diseases, naturally acquired immunity is more powerful than vaccine-induced immunity, and it often lasts a lifetime.

Researchers at Maccabi Healthcare and Tel Aviv University compared the outcomes of over 76,000 Israelis in three groups.

The groups in the study were:
1. the doubly vaccinated (with the Pfizer vaccine)
2. Previously Covid infected but unvaccinated
3. Previously Covid infected with only a single vaccine dose

The newly released data show people who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it, or become hospitalized with serious Covid-19.COMIRNATY is the brand name for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. Now that the FDA-authorized Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine has been approved by the FDA.

The Israeli researchers discovered that immunity acquired through infection from Covid-19 is superior to immunity from the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The study also found that fully vaccinated but uninfected people were significantly more likely to have a “breakthrough” Covid infection than people who had previously been infected and recovered from the disease.

“This study demonstrated that natural immunity confers longer-lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant,” the authors conclude.

The study, conducted in one of the most highly Covid-19–vaccinated countries in the world, examined the medical records of tens of thousands of Israelis, charting their infections, symptoms, and hospitalizations between 1 June and 14 August, when the Delta variant predominated in Israel.

No one in the study who got a new SARS-CoV-2 infection died—which prevented comparison of death rates but is a clear sign that vaccines still offer a formidable shield against serious disease, even if not as good as natural immunity.

For many infectious diseases, naturally acquired immunity is more powerful than vaccine-induced immunity, and it often lasts a lifetime. Other coronaviruses that cause the serious human disease SARS and the MERS trigger robust and persistent immune responses.

At the same time, several other human coronaviruses, which usually cause little more than colds, are known to reinfect people regularly.

Keep in mind, the Israeli study is only published as a preprint at this stage and has not been peer-reviewed. There was no external funding for the project.

HERD IMMUNITY MUST BE ACHIEVED BY VIRUS TRANSMISSION SAYS ICELAND AFTER FULL VACCINATION

Thorolfur Guðnason, Iceland’s epidemiologist, believes that the country must now try to achieve herd immunity to the coronavirus by letting it continue, but try to prevent severe disease by protecting vulnerable groups.

He said the goal at this point could not be to eradicate the virus from the community.

A record number of infected people have been diagnosed in recent weeks, even though most of the population has been vaccinated.

“There’s really nothing else we can do,” Guðnason confirmed when asked if 70- to 80-year-olds need to catch the disease to achieve herd immunity.

Iceland is one of the most vaccinated countries in the world, with 71.3% fully immunized people. The country has also managed to simultaneously boost its economy and have one of the lowest death rates in the world.

This has been done safely with the help of the country’s effective track and trace system, rigorous testing, and social distancing.

  1. Ummm… I think there should be an “ANTIBODY-DEPENDENT ENHANCEMENT PASSPORT”… proving that one’s vaccination will not soon be a liability to oneself, and to others!

    BTW!… now that the due-date (August 15th, 2021) for American Intelligence to report back to congress on the origination of the COVID-19 disease has passed, what has American Intelligence come up with regarding this matter?
    .
    Apart from the insane ramblings of the former U.S. President as to the origins and man-made nature of SARS-CoV-2/ COVID-19 (and I’ll not speculate here on the origins and man-made nature of any VOC “adaptations”!), even Joe Biden has received evidence linking SARS-CoV-2/ COVID-19 to the notorious Wuhan Lab– and, to a disease onset time-frame that/ which PRECEDES the time-frame that we have been previously led to believe was the TRUE disease onset time-frame!… the which, has led to a UNANIMOUS VOTE in the U.S. (SUPPORTED BY BOTH HOUSES!) to have all documentation associated with the origin and “nature” of SARS-CoV-2/ COVID-19 brought into the public domain, and, that U.S. Intelligence be required to report back to the Biden Administration by no later than mid-August, of 2021 (pending, of course, any amended announcements made by the Biden Administration!… see, https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/CREC-2021-05-26/html/CREC-2021-05-26-pt1-PgS3488.htm)!
    .
    And so and thus, and to conclude, to act as if NO CRIME has been perpetrated in the entry of this disease (and, it[‘]s variants!) into the global arena, is to preempt and second-guess the outcome of the facts being sought elsewhere!… and to– by default– give deference to the “status quo version” of events and their time-frames!
    .
    In the light of the mounting scientific evidence that the very “Vaccination Agenda” itself may pose an even greater problem for global public health than the onset of the original SARS-CoV-2/ COVID-19, I find it quite appalling that the global community is now not only having to contend with an evil that/ which may yet be proven to have originated from the Wuhan Lab (and by default, would thereby be “anthropogen[icly] derived”/ “man-made”), but– in addition– is having to contend with a “Public Health Agenda” that/ which is in a SYSTEMIC CONFLICT OF INTEREST IN THE PROFFERING OF “IMPARTIAL” PUBLIC HEALTH TREATMENT INFORMATION ON THE ONE HAND, WHILST LOCKSTEP WITH A MYOPIC AND POTENTIALLY LETHAL “PHARMA-CENTRIC TREATMENT INTEREST AGENDA” ON THE OTHER!
