According to a recent study by a group of scientists from Israel, the risk of re-infection with COVID-19 for those who recovered from the disease and were not vaccinated is several times lower than for those who were vaccinated, stated philosopher, political scientist and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan in his article “The weak is here. It is in the vaccine,“ published on October 8 in the Essence of Time newspaper.
According to him, the scientific community, based on an analysis of official statistics from the Israeli Ministry of Health, stated that “the risk of reinfection with the Delta strain among vaccinated patients is 13 times higher than among those who were previously infected without vaccination. Thirteen times!“
The political scientist cites the August 24, 2021 publication on medrxiv.org by a team of scientists including Sivan Gazit, Roy Schlesinger, Galit Peretz and others.
Medrxiv.org is an online archive with free access to a database of preprints – drafts of scientific articles in medicine that have not yet undergone peer review before publication in scientific journals.
Despite the fact that the article has the status of a preprint, it has already attracted considerable attention among health care workers and medical officials. This attention is qualitatively greater than one would expect from an ordinary preprint, Kurginyan emphasizes.
“We conducted a retrospective observational study comparing three groups: the first was people previously uninfected with SARS-CoV-2 who had received the Pfizer biphasic vaccine. The second was previously infected people who had not been vaccinated. And the third is previously infected people who then received a single dose of vaccines,” the study says.
According to the data outlined in the study, “vaccinated patients who had not previously been infected with SARS-CoV-2 had a 13.06 times higher risk of reinfection with the Delta strain than those who had previously been infected. While the first event – infection or vaccination – occurred during January and February 2021.“
