Breakthrough: How Data Calls into question an Implied Narrative

How Data Calls into question an Implied  and justification for forced Vaccine Mandates and Events restrictions.

Every weekday I set my alarm to  KXL 101.1FM to catch the news when I wake up. One day I heard a fast-talking report about 25% of new cases of COVID-19 are  vaccinated individuals and of that 25% only 4% need hospitalization and  of that on 1% died. This  perked my  interest, and  I was reading the  Breakthrough case report – November 4, , 2021: 

“During the week of October 24–October 30, there were 8,239 cases of COVID-19. 6,214 (75.4%) were unvaccinated and 2,025 (24.6%) were vaccine breakthrough cases. The median age of breakthrough cases was 47 years. 50 (2.5%) breakthrough cases were residents of care facilities, senior living communities or other congregate living settings. 428 (21.1%) cases were 65 or older. There were 66 (3.3%) cases aged 12-17. OHA publishes the most up-to-date information about cases from the most recently completed MMWR week. However, not all information about a case’s vaccination status may be available at the”

Further  observations  for the same  report Note a similar trend.

With this  data, I do not  question the  value of the COVID-19  vaccine   I question policies from  President Biden to local fan conventions and  restaurants  and bars, of forcing vaccination (show the card), or a medical test  as a requirement  to attend or enter an event. Noting breakthrough cases , and recent cases invoking  dignitaries like the late Colin Powel, performers, athletes, journalist, and White House staff members,   a person can still catch and  infect others COVID-19. Furthermore, I say it is moot for one must show the card and a fan convention. The vaccine only lessens the occurrence of the corona  virus, and dose not lead  to eradication of the virus. If the event reason of the policy to show the card or test results,  is to promote safety, the only sure-fire way is to cancel the event or require 100% testing all the days of the event.

I believe there is  a false narrative implied that if everybody   gets the shot , it will lead to herd immunity, the virus  vanquished, and we can go back getting to  together at big events like its 2019. I do not see malevolent intent by many establishments  requirements,  but  motivation by fear of  return  government-imposed lockdowns, as reason to compel others even  against a person’s moral values to get the shot.

I do believe  there is better way than mandate shots and test: we will have deal with  the reality of  COVID as many  Northern  European countries  have rescinded all restrictions or  innovation like  spreading  the convention over many weeks, using  a sessions ticket  to limited attendance and a mixture of live and streamed events. With  disease  that has  over 90% survival rate, a majority will have mild to no symptoms, and a 2.8% death ratio, and no difference in number case between states with strict restrictions and  those states with lax policy. Forced mandates are not the answer.
