Breakthrough Covid infections are more common than people realize

Pfizer board member Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Monday.

Facts have proved that the effectiveness of the new coronavirus vaccine will diminish over time. Gottlieb said that breakthrough infections are likely to occur in individuals nearly a year after complete immunization. However, the former Director of the Food and Drug Administration pointed out that the booster can take effect “almost immediately”, restoring the antibody protection provided by the vaccine to its original level.

Gottlieb said: “There may be more infections in the vaccinated population, more transmission in this population, and the unenhanced part of the population may be more than what we are discovering because we just don’t have a system. Keep track of this.” “There will be retrospective research to determine this, but we are not tracking this well in real time. This is the argument that people go out and get boosters.”

Gottlieb urged Americans who have been vaccinated to be strengthened before the Thanksgiving party, and suggested that those who receive additional vaccinations in the coming days can still “get more protection” in time before the holidays. He urged parents to bring unvaccinated children before the holidays to vaccinate, adding that compared with adults, children are better able to withstand the new coronavirus from the first dose.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday cleared the way for all American adults who received two doses of Covid vaccine from Pfizer or Moderna so that they could be boosted at least six months after receiving a second dose of the vaccine. The agency had previously approved a booster for any Johnson & Johnson vaccine vaccinators 18 years and older, but they were eligible two months after receiving a dose of the Covid vaccine.

Gottlieb’s comments came as the United States reported that after several weeks of decline and a nearly three-week plateau that began in late October, the number of new coronavirus cases has increased, with the number of daily cases flat between 70,000 and 75,000. . According to CNBC’s analysis of Johns Hopkins University data, the country’s average seven-day number of new cases reached nearly 92,400 on Sunday, an increase of 16% from a week ago.

The World Health Organization reported in its most recent weekly epidemiological update that as of the week of November 14, global new coronavirus cases also increased by 6%. According to the World Health Organization, Europe recorded more than 2.1 million new cases that week, accounting for approximately 64% of the total global cases.

Hopkins found that Germany reported more than 49,200 new cases in seven days on Sunday, an increase of nearly 31% over the previous week. Gottlieb said that inadequate vaccination rates and lower levels of previous infections than those in the United States are contributing to the surge of highly infectious delta variants in Germany.

“When you look at the total immunity of the German population, it may be lower than that of the United States,” Gottlieb said. “I’m not saying that we won’t spread here-of course we have seen dense delta outbreaks in specific areas of this country.”

“But I think our current situation is a little different from Germany, because we have experienced a lot of infections from the previous wave, and Germany controlled the infection better in the previous wave,” he continued. “Now, delta strain is out of control there.”

German Chancellor Merkel called on the country’s 16 states to take tough measures to control the spread of the epidemic by Wednesday, and told members of the Conservative Party that the current measures are not enough. Germany has restricted public life in areas where hospitals are overcrowded.

Austria, the neighboring country of southern Germany, imposed a complete lockdown on Monday and implemented a nationwide vaccination program from February 1.
