33 care workers met at a private meeting on the Faroe Islands in early December. In the days that followed, many of the participants developed clear Covid symptoms, which were confirmed by PCR tests. Ultimately, there was a total of 21 infected. This corresponds to an infection rate of 63.6 percent.
A comment by Daniel Matissek
As is typical for Omikron, it was without exception harmless and mild clinical pictures (runny nose, hoarseness, slight fever) – but this was once again impressively confirmed that the “booster booster vaccinations” currently being praised in Germany as the “best protection against Omikron” in truth do not achieve any noteworthy effect for the intended purpose. Corresponding fears were raised confirmed in a recently published studywho also took up the case in Faroe Islands and the practical ineffectiveness of Covid vaccinations against the Omikron variant thematized.
First appearance of omicron
Further investigation revealed that the incident was the first case of the Omicron variant in the Faroe Islands, as was officially established on December 8th. All infected had been vaccinated three times with the Comirnaty vaccine from Pfizer / Biontech; the third vaccination took place within the last two and a half months. None of those affected had a previous illness or had to be treated in hospital. All had taken a negative Covid test in the 36 hours before the meeting.
Similar results in Norway
Almost identical results can be seen in Norway, where the Omikron variant is growing rapidly among party-goers who have been vaccinated several times spread. And in Denmark, even a vaccination rate over 80 percent was not enough to save the country from to one of the European hotspots of the Omikron variant to become: In mid-December, 84 percent of those infected with the Omikron variant had been vaccinated twice, nine percent of them even three times – which roughly corresponds to the ratio of the respective vaccinated / boosted population and indicates a virtually non-existent vaccination protection against the mutant. Also in Denmark were at major events and Parties among all vaccinated people Mass outbreaks occurred or Parties zu „Superspreader-Events“ become.
These results show
- that the Omikron variant is highly contagious,
- will most likely soon dominate (or already do) and
- that even triple inoculations offer no protection against them.
In Germany, too, new research projects have now been initiated that will test the effectiveness of the Covid vaccinations against the Omikron variant or to investigate the possibilities for modifications of the vaccines. Mainstream media and the politics of the states most interested in vaccination campaigns speak of the fact that Omikron is the variant with which Covid could lose its horror (which it has long had for critical contemporaries who judge by the standards of proportionality).
