A Freedom Of Information Act request submitted by Elizabeth Brehm, on behalf of the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), revealed that the CDC has no documentation of COVID-recovered individuals spreading the virus to another individual.
The FOIA requested that the CDC provide “documents reflecting any documented case of an individual who (1) never received a COVID-19 vaccine; (2) was infected with COVID-19 once, recovered, and then later became infected again; and (3) transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to another person when reinfected.” As stated in a letter from a the Office of the Chief Operating Officer for the CDC, the Office did not have any information to address the request:
A search of our records failed to reveal any documents pertaining to your request. The CDC Emergency
Operations Center (EOC) conveyed that this information is not collected.
Despite this lack of data, the CDC has continued to deny the benefits of natural immunity and encourage forced vaccination for those who were previously infected. This is despite the fact that it has been well documented that natural immunity appears to be superior to vaccine-acquired immunity, offering long-lasting immunity. A growing body of evidence also suggests that COVID-19 vaccines do not prevent transmission or infection and wanes within months.
For example, a recent study from Yale suggests that natural immunity provides protection lasting for at least 17 months, three times longer than vaccine immunity.
In October ICAN revealed that, after providing “the CDC with over 60 studies reflecting that natural immunity is more durable and robust than vaccine immunity,” they were demanding that the CDC lift restrictions on those with natural immunities. The petition was in response to the CDC lifting restrictions on vaccinated individuals while excluding those who were naturally immune.
The CDC responded to ICAN lawyers’ petition stating that “we know that reinfection with human coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2, has been documented” and that “all eligible persons should be offered the COVID-19 vaccine, even those with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection.” They also added that the “CDC acts on the best and most accurate scientific information available when developing guidance.”
Their response failed to mention a previous CDC study that suggested the benefits of natural immunity. In a similar vein, Dr. Fauci was also unable to give a “firm answer” on the durability of natural immunity, saying it is something “we need to sit down and discuss seriously.”
Aaron Siri, managing partner of Siri & Glimstad and a civil rights attorney, writes:
The CDC’s excuse for not having a shred of evidence of the naturally immune transmitting the virus is that ‘this information is not collected,’ … The facts about natural immunity are simple. Every single peer-reviewed study has found that the naturally immune have far greater than 99% protection from having COVID-19, and this immunity does not wane. In contrast, the COVID-19 vaccine provides, at best, 95% protection and this immunity wanes rapidly. I am no mathematician, but a constant 99% seems preferable to a 95% that quickly drops. And, while the vaccinated readily transmit the virus, not so for the naturally immune.”
This report draws attention to the fact that, despite researchers having gathered substantial data on the strength of natural immunity over the past 20 months, the Biden administration, government health agencies, and many in the scientific community continue to refuse to consider natural immunity as plausible protection against the virus, instead choosing to push sweeping vaccine mandates.
