The Lancet: German/US Treatment Of The Unvaccinated Risks Summoning Nazi/Racist Past

At a time (October, 2021) when 90% of the new COVID cases in UK residents 60 or older are fully vaccinated, a German physician publishing in The Lancet asserts it is “grossly negligent” to suggest the vaccinated are not a relevant source of viral infection and transmission as he pleads for privileged Western societies to refrain from treating their unvaccinated minorities as subhuman.

The Lancet is perhaps regarded as the world’s most prestigious medical journal. So the stakes must be sufficiently acute for the journal’s overseers to allow Dr. G√ľnter Kampf, a German physician, to publish a clarion call imploring non-discriminatory and humane treatment of the unvaccinated.

Evoking images of past racial and religious prejudices, Kampf pleads with Western societies – scientists and government officials – to refrain from gratuitously stigmatizing the unvaccinated.

“Historically, both the USA and Germany have engendered negative experiences by stigmatising parts of the population for their skin colour or religion. I call on high-level officials and scientists to stop the inappropriate stigmatisation of unvaccinated people, who include our patients, colleagues, and other fellow citizens.”

Dr. Kampf published another article in The Lancet, alternatively in Elsevier, explaining that it is “grossly negligent” to pretend the fully vaccinated are not relevant sources of COVID transmission.

For example, 89,821 of 100,160 (89.7%) COVID cases (age 60+) were in UK residents who were fully vaccinated from weeks 39 to 42 (October). Just 3.4% (3,395) of the new cases were in the unvaccinated 60 and older.

In Germany, the gap between the unvaccinated and vaccinated has been rapidly closing. The percentage of new cases in 60-and-older, fully vaccinated residents rose from 16.9% in July to 58.9% in October.

Actually, the rates of new cases in the vaccinated has recently overtaken the rates in the unvaccinated. UK residents 30 and older are about 1.2 to 2.2 times more likely to be infected with COVID if they’re fully vaccinated.

In weeks 41-44, 367,347 of 394,455 (93.1%) of new cases in UK residents 40 and over were fully vaccinated. And, sadly, 2,767 of 3,103 (89.2%) deaths in residents 70 and over were fully vaccinated.

Has the world gone mad?

Imagine government bodies requiring adults 30 and up to be injected with a COVID vaccine that makes it twice as likely they will be infected with COVID…and then stigmatizing those who haven’t been injected yet because they have declined the opportunity to increase their odds to get infected.

That is what is happening.
