In an August 19, 2021 US CDC update they state: “Fully vaccinated people with Delta variant breakthrough infections can spread the virus to others…
the Delta variant seems to produce the same high amount of virus in both unvaccinated and fully vaccinated people…”https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/variants/delta-variant.html
Fully vaccinated people who become infected with the Delta variant of Covid-19 have the same viral loads as the infected unvaccinated, according to both the US CDC, and the UK.
Thus, apart from all of the other issues with vaccine mandate-passports, they provide a false sense of security. This false sense of security can lead to increased infections and spread.
Please note that the Delta variant was made in India, not the United States. India has high levels of crowding, poor sanitation, and people had a false sense of security that the pandemic had passed. India has the most expats/largest diaspora spread across the world, as well as one of the two largest populations. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the most widespread variant was made in India.
The US CDC apparently stopped counting the “breakthrough” (vaccinated) case totals, as of May 1, 2021, and shifted focus to hospitalized or fatal cases among the vaccinated.
Between May 1, 2021 and August 9, 2021, there were 8,054 hospitalized or fatal cases of Covid-19 among the vaccinated in 49 states.
On May 28, 2021, they explained that “the number of reported COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases is likely a substantial undercount of all SARS-CoV-2 infections among fully vaccinated persons. The national surveillance system relies on passive and voluntary reporting, and data might not be complete or representative. Many persons with vaccine breakthrough infections, especially those who are asymptomatic or who experience mild illness, might not seek testing… SARS-CoV-2 sequence data are available for only a small proportion of the reported cases…A total of 10,262 SARS-CoV-2 vaccine breakthrough infections had been reported from 46 U.S. states and territories as of April 30, 2021.” https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7021e3.htm
Excerpts from the US CDC’s
“Delta Variant: What We Know About the Science Updated Aug. 19, 2021
On July 27, 2021, CDC released updated guidance ….
CDC issued this new guidance due to several concerning developments and newly emerging data signals. First is a reversal in the downward trajectory of cases. In the days leading up to our guidance update, CDC saw a rapid and alarming rise in the COVID case and hospitalization rates around the country.
In late June, our 7-day moving average of reported cases was around 12,000. On July 27, the 7-day moving average of cases reached over 60,000. This case rate looked more like the rate of cases we had seen before the vaccine was widely available.
Second, new data began to emerge that the Delta variant was more infectious and was leading to increased transmissibility when compared to other variants, even in vaccinated individuals. This includes recently published data from CDC and our public health partners, unpublished surveillance data that will be publicly available in the coming weeks, information included in CDC’s updated Science Brief on COVID-19 Vaccines and Vaccination, and ongoing outbreak investigations linked to the Delta variant…
individuals infected with the Delta variant, including fully vaccinated people with symptomatic breakthrough infections, can transmit it to others…
Fully vaccinated people with Delta variant breakthrough infections can spread the virus to others. However, vaccinated people appear to be infectious for a shorter period…
the Delta variant seems to produce the same high amount of virus in both unvaccinated and fully vaccinated people…
Given what we know about the Delta variant, vaccine effectiveness, and current vaccine coverage, layered prevention strategies, such as wearing masks, are needed to reduce the transmission of this variant…
At this time, as we build the level of vaccination nationwide, we must also use all the prevention strategies available, including masking indoors in public places, to stop transmission and stop the epidemic.
Although vaccines are highly effective, they are not perfect and there will be vaccine breakthrough infections. Millions of Americans are vaccinated, and that number is growing. This means that even though the risk of breakthrough infections is low, there will be thousands of fully vaccinated people who become infected and able to infect others, especially with the surging spread of the Delta variant…“ https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/variants/delta-variant.html There are already in the thousands – there are almost 20,000 reported, so they should say tens of thousands.
“A total of 10,262 SARS-CoV-2 vaccine breakthrough infections had been reported from 46 U.S. states and territories as of April 30, 2021. Among these cases, 6,446 (63%) occurred in females, and the median patient age was 58 years (interquartile range = 40–74 years). Based on preliminary data, 2,725 (27%) vaccine breakthrough infections were asymptomatic, 995 (10%) patients were known to be hospitalized, and 160 (2%) patients died. Among the 995 hospitalized patients, 289 (29%) were asymptomatic or hospitalized for a reason unrelated to COVID-19. The median age of patients who died was 82 years (interquartile range = 71–89 years); 28 (18%) decedents were asymptomatic or died from a cause unrelated to COVID-19. Sequence data were available from 555 (5%) reported cases, 356 (64%) of which were identified as SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern,§ including B.1.1.7 (199; 56%), B.1.429 (88; 25%), B.1.427 (28; 8%), P.1 (28; 8%), and B.1.351 (13; 4%). As of April 30, 2021, approximately 101 million persons in the United States had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.¶ However, during the surveillance period, SARS-CoV-2 transmission continued at high levels in many parts of the country, with approximately 355,000 COVID-19 cases reported nationally during the week of April 24–30, 2021.** “ https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7021e3.htm
May 1 2021 to August 9 2021: Hospitalized or fatal COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases reported to CDC
“As of May 1, 2021, CDC transitioned from monitoring all reported vaccine breakthrough cases to focus on identifying and investigating only hospitalized or fatal cases due to any cause.
As of August 9, 2021, more than 166 million people in the United States had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
During the same time, CDC received reports from 49 U.S. states and territories of 8,054 patients with COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infection who were hospitalized or died”. Breakthrough cases https://archive.ph/yaPLs
As of April 30th, there were 10,262 Covid-19 cases among the vaccinated. “A total of 10,262 SARS-CoV-2 vaccine breakthrough infections had been reported from 46 U.S. states and territories as of April 30, 2021.

Despite the facts, the US CDC continue to push the experimental vaccinations, and accuse less vaccinated communities of spreading the variant, while ignoring the infected migrants that have been in crowded conditions before and after their arrival and come from countries with almost zero vaccination. These migrants have been seeded within communities across the country. THE DELTA VARIANT ORIGINATED IN INDIA WHERE SANITATION IS OFTEN SUBSTANDARD OR NON-EXISTENT AND YET THEY ACCUSE THE FEW UNVACCINATED AMERICANS OF CREATING VARIANTS BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT TO TAKE THE EXPERIMENTAL VACCINES. WHY DON’T THEY GO EXPERIMENT ON INDIA? People from India have taken our jobs for decades and now they are taking the lives of those who have managed to survive?
Furthermore, the timeline suggests that the vaccine being developed in India could possibly be literally the origin of the Delta variant. “Delhi: 30-year-old is first to get dose of trial drug Covaxin Covid-19 Vaccine Covaxin: The country’s top medical institute is among the 12 sites selected by the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) for conducting Phase I and II randomised, double-blind and placebo-controlled clinical trials of Covaxin”.

The majority of the British, especially older British, have been vaccinated.
The UK explains that the viral load for the infected vaccinated vs unvaccinated is essentially the same:
1.7.1. Comparison of viral load Ct by vaccination status In the NHS Test and Trace (NHSTT) case data, the mean and median lowest Ct values for all cases with Delta, where Ct data are available, since the 14 June 2021 are similar, with a median of 17.8 for unvaccinated and 18.0 for those with 2 vaccine doses (Figure 12). This means that whilst vaccination may reduce an individual’s overall risk of becoming infected, once they are infected there is limited difference in viral load (and Ct values) between those who are vaccinated and unvaccinated. Given they have similar Ct values, this suggests limited difference in infectiousness.”https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1001354/Variants_of_Concern_VOC_Technical_Briefing_17.pdf
And, the vaccinated are still ending up in the ER and dying. Among age 50 and over, there are more vaccinated hospitalized and dead than unvaccinated. This is a highly vaccinated age group, but these outcomes still raise questions. The unvaccinated age 50 and over appear to fare better. These charts are worth looking at carefully.
