Latest Covid infection data from Denmark shows vaccine protection collapsing. Omicron is a red herring. The failure is vaccine inability to protect from Delta. Funny that.
It is damning evidence of the failure of the vaccines. More than 76 percent of non-Omicron Covid infections in Denmark are in vaccinated people, along with about 90 percent of Omicron infections. Only 25 of the 561 people currently hospitalized in Denmark for Covid have the Omicron variant. The Danes do not provide an exact number for patients in intensive care with Omicron, saying only that it is fewer than five.
The Danish data also show that people with Omicron are both less likely to be hospitalized than those with other variants and released from the hospital much more quickly – in line with what South African health authorities have reported. When you consider the symptoms of Omicron, it sounds like the common cold. Perhaps the cold is making a comeback after being beaten down by Covid.
Berenson concludes that: “Overall, though, the figures out of Denmark largely back those from South Africa – and make clear that the reason that Europe has seen a massive rise in cases and hospitalizations this fall has nothing to do with Omicron and everything to do with vaccine failure.“
