The Times report stated the odds of a fully vaccinated person contracting COVID-19 on a given day are 1 in 5,000, citing statistics from King County, WA and other metro areas around the country.
Dr. Scott Lindquist, Washington’s State Epidemiologist cast some doubt on the reliability of the Times’ calculations.
“I think those are numbers that are manipulated that don’t take into the context of everyone who’s asymptomatic,” said Lindquist.
But Dr. Bill Messer, an infectious disease expert at OHSU, was more supportive of the 1 in 5,000 probability calculation, calling it a “fair attempt,” though stopping short of calling it accurate.
IF you, as a public peon, are confused, it is your fault. Keep that in mind!
