The left wing media and the Biden administration has continually blamed the unvaccinated for spreading the coronavirus.
Well, a report from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania reveals that is not the case.
The Pittsburg Post Gazette is reporting that 30% of all the new cases in Allegheny County (county that encompasses Pittsburg) are breakthrough infections.
From the Pittsburg Post Gazette:
In Allegheny County, based on limited testing data, the Health Department is seeing COVID-19 breakthrough rates of about 30%, department Director Dr. Debra Bogen said recently.
Oh but wait, there’s more, breakthrough hospitalizations account for 7-40% of all COVID hospitalizations in the county:
Among people hospitalized for the virus in the Pittsburgh region, the percentage who have been fully vaccinated ranges between 7% and 40%, doctors say, depending on the time period measured. Many breakthroughs occur in people who are older or who are immunocompromised or who have chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or lung problems.
There’s another little nugget mentioned in the Post’s report, health officials believe there are even more breakthrough infections than are being reported:
UPMC doctors were unavailable Friday to talk about COVID-19 breakthrough cases, but discovering the infection in many Allegheny Health Network patients often comes through routine screening rather than complaints of feeling sick, said Tariq Cheema, division chair, critical care medicine.
Because these patients often have no symptoms, the diagnosis is often made after routine screening before a medical procedure.
“They’re incidental findings,” Dr. Cheema said. “That’s what drives the numbers. The good news is they’re not super-sick; they don’t end up on ventilators and dying.”
Biden is continually claiming the unvaccinated are spreading the virus however it appears – at least in Pittsburg – the virus is doing what viruses do.
Biden attempt to politicize the virus and segregate the country is falling apart and as cases rise in blue states it’s going to make Biden look even more incompetent.
