I don’t know what surprised me the most: The fact that epidemiologist are calling the conclusion biased (as in politically biased) or that is being published by a Old School Media source like a TV station.
HUNT VALLEY, Md. (SBG) — Some epidemiologists describe a government study comparing vaccine and natural immunity as potentially biased.
The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, recently tweeted that people who were unvaccinated and had a prior COVID-19 infection “were 5X more likely to have COVID-19” than those who were vaccinated without natural immunity. She referred to an Oct. 29 CDC study that examined patients who were hospitalized with “COVID-19–like illness.”
Despite the conclusion one might draw from Walensky’s tweet, the CDC study isn’t designed to answer the question of whether vaccine immunity or natural immunity is superior. Harvard Medical School professor Martin Kulldorff, an epidemiologist and biostatistician who now serves as senior scientific director of Brownstone Institute, writes that the study instead answers the question of “whether vaccination or Covid recovery is more related to Covid hospitalization or if it is more related to other respiratory type hospitalizations.”
Basically is saying that the director of the CDC tried to knit a sweater when she only had two pieces of lint and no needles and we are supposed to believe it.
