In an apparent effort to not alarm people, or maybe to just deceive them, the “CDC is transitioning to reporting only patients with COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infection that were hospitalized or died to help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance. That change in reporting will begin on May 14, 2021. In preparation for that transition, the number of reported breakthrough cases will not be updated on May 7, 2021.”
In other words, the number of people who are “fully vaccinated” and still get COVID-19, but are not hospitalized due to COVID-19, and/or do not die from COVID-19, WILL NOT BE COUNTED in their COVID-19 “breakthrough” numbers. Thus we’ll never really know just how effective the vaccines are against COVID-19.
Follow the science, kids. Throw out unwanted data. Let the numbers speak what you want them to speak.
