CCP Virus Variant Affects Vaccinated People More Than Unvaccinated People: Study

BY JACK PHILLIPS April 11, 2021 Updated: April 12, 2021 Epoch Times

A study from Tel Aviv University found that a South African variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus affects people vaccinated with the Pfizer shot more than unvaccinated people.

The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, indicated that the B.1.351 variant of the virus was found eight times more in individuals who were vaccinated—or 5.4 percent against 0.7 percent—against those who were not vaccinated. Clalit Health Services, a top Israeli health-care provider, also helped in the study.

“We found a disproportionately higher rate of the South African variant among people vaccinated with a second dose, compared to the unvaccinated group,” said Adi Stern of Tel Aviv University. “This means that the South African variant is able, to some extent, to break through the vaccine’s protection.”

The study looked at 400 people who received at least one shot of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and had contracted the COVID-19 variant and compared them to the same number of people who were infected and unvaccinated. Moderna’s vaccine is also used in Israel, but it was not included in the study.

“It is the first in the world to be based on real-world data, showing that the vaccine is less effective against the South Africa variant, compared to both the original virus and the British variant,” said Professor Ran Balicer, director of research at Clalit, according to news reports.

Stern said the study’s findings came as a surprise.

“Based on patterns in the general population, we would have expected just one case of the South African variant, but we saw eight,” Stern told the Times of Israel. “Obviously, this result didn’t make me happy.” He added, “Even if the South African variant does break through the vaccine’s protection, it has not spread widely through the population.”

He continued: “These preliminary findings necessitates close continued attention to the dissemination of this strain in Israel, emphasizing the need for epidemiological monitoring and systematic sequencing, in order to contain further spread of the South African variant in Israel.”

The South African variant accounted for less than one percent of all COVID-19 cases in Israel, reported AFP, citing the study.

“This means that the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine, though highly protective, probably does not provide the same level of protection against the South African (B.1.351) variant of the coronavirus,” the study said.

Israel, separately, has rolled out a so-called “vaccine passport” system that allows people who have been vaccinated privileges over individuals who are not vaccinated. Such systems have been criticized by civil liberties groups, saying it would be an infringement on people’s rights, including privacy, and would potentially create a two-tiered class system of vaccinated and unvaccinated people.

COVID-19 is the disease caused by the CCP virus, a novel coronavirus.

  2. I have no interest in getting jabbed with an experimental “vaccine”.
    I use quotation Mark’s as there are numerous reports that this is notechnically a vaccine. It is being called a vaccine to enable them to avoid liability.
    No thanks.

  3. Brian says all adverse effects are under reported, Agreed.
    My wife and I were registered and an appointment for the jab yesterday, we are aged 73 and 71, she a recovering stage 4 colon cancer patient.
    But last week we cancelled due to the 16 week delay for the second shot, the mfg says a 4 week delay, and CDC now says 6 weeks ok instead of 4 but not the mfg, but Canada sticks with 16 weeks. We would accept 6 weeks if offered.
    Also my wife had allergic reactions to chemo and MRI agents, her spleen gone and this a concern not addressed here, we should have a letter from our doctor as to this, but a letter not available yet.
    So, we’ll wait and see.

  4. FYI: “UK Column” (website and Y’Tube) do a very good twice weekly rundown on the under-reported side-effects of the gene-based jabs; largely UK data, but some EU and US data as well. They will soon be commencing reports from UK National Health Service front-line staff that are very unhappy with the roll-out.
