By the way, data from the United Arab Emirates, the most vaccinated major sovereign nation, does suggest the transmission among the vaccinated is rare if the two doses are given at the right interval. Why do we expect the vaccinated to keep passing on the virus? High vaccination uptake has eliminated community transmission in many other cases.
Welcome back Don II - I am still not short of amazement at your self answering of questions.
Again, you've answered your own question, to highlight this, I'll just quote your post back to you in reverse order.
Why do we expect the vaccinated to keep passing on the virus?
Because we know that no Covid vaccine available today prevents transmission, no vaccine manufacturer has ever claimed that their vaccine could.
I think if you know this too, maybe you just don't want to believe it, maybe you have not thought about what you know enough to realise what you know.
By the way, data from the United Arab Emirates, the most vaccinated major sovereign nation, does suggest the transmission among the vaccinated is rare if the two doses are given at the right interval.
Notice your own words? Read them carefully:
the most vaccinated major sovereign nation
transmission among the vaccinated
even if it
and even when
the two doses are given at the right interval.
there is still (again, because you keep missing it)
transmission among the vaccinated
Got it? See you wrote your own answer.
High vaccination uptake has eliminated community transmission in many other cases.
No it has not. You cannot show us a place where high vaccination rate has eliminated community transmission. That is admittedly a partial calling of your bluff, I certainly cannot be bothered attempting to chase down your potential facts from myth. I don't know for sure that vaccination has not lead to zero community transmissions but I am making a good guess based on knowledge of how the vaccines work, and more subtly banking on the fact that if you actually had evidence of this you would have just mentioned a case, instead of vaguely saying 'many cases' and hoping the rest of us would automatically accept it.
You know in Australia right now you have near 100% chance of catching the virus from a current resident of Australia, and a near 0% chance of catching the virus from a current resident of China don't you? That doesn't mean it will be safer for you to live in China. It just means that a person in China is more likely to be infected by another Chinese resident than by a resident of Australia.This is not the case in Tasmania, Queensland, South Australia or Western Australia.
Yes it is the case! If anyone in any of those states becomes infected with the virus it is virtually guaranteed that their infection would be from a domestic source rather than foreign. Again, you've told us you know this yourself:
Along with New Zealand, we stopped passenger traffic from mainland China before it was declared a pandemic, that is in late January 2020.
So what is the chance of a Chinese sourced infection anywhere in Australia (or NZ since you included them) occurring 'right now'?
You wrote it yourself, there's effectively none of them here to catch it from...
This is the third time I have written this reply, sadly the original typing was the best, and I am not losing interest, blame your alter ego, it was too important that I try and correct your other ego's post, and this one got neglected, yes Don I, I only have so many minutes.
