Democrats and media pundits tell us to ‘follow the science.’
The funny thing is that the science for COVID-19 has NEVER been on their side.
So, let’s follow the real science.
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that people vaccinated against COVID-19 remained contagious for a longer period of time than unvaccinated individuals.

BREAKING: A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine has demonstrated that people who are “boosted” recover much more slowly from COVID and remain contagious for longer than people who refuse all of these injections.
The science proves us right yet again.

From The National Pulse:
The disparity in contagiousness was particularly pronounced between the unvaccinated and individuals who did not receive a booster shot.
The findings were published in a letter to the editor signed by dozens of doctors from a variety of hospitals in Boston, Massachusetts in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine in June. From July 2021 through January 2022, researchers studied 66 participants who contracted COVID-19, including 32 people with the Delta variant and 34 with the Omicron variant.
Researchers compiled a variety of graphs tracking how long people remained contagious with the virus, using both PCR tests and viral cultures as indicators.
When the data was separated into the categories “unvaccinated,” “vaccinated,” and “boosted,” individuals who did not receive a COVID-19 vaccine were contagious for a shorter period of time.
Regarding positive PCR tests, within the first 10 days of contracting the virus 68.75 percent of unvaccinated subjects were no longer contagious. In contrast, just 29.72 percent of vaccinated and 38.46 percent of boosted people were no longer contagious.
Fifteen days into the study, 93.75 percent and 92.31 percent of unvaccinated and boosted people, respectively, were no longer contagious; however, just 78.38 percent of vaccinated people weren’t contagious.
In this longitudinal cohort of participants, most of whom had symptomatic, nonsevere Covid-19 infection, the viral decay kinetics were similar with omicron infection and delta infection. Although vaccination has been shown to reduce the incidence of infection and the severity of disease, we did not find large differences in the median duration of viral shedding among participants who were unvaccinated, those who were vaccinated but not boosted, and those who were vaccinated and boosted.
This NEJM report follows a study that showed natural immunity conferred better protection against the omicron variant than three doses of the experimental Pfizer COVID-19 shot.
