Harvard-Studie beweist: Weltweite Impfungen hemmen das Virus nicht

Am 30. September 2021 ist die Online-first-Fassung einer Harvard-Studie erschienen, die dem ARD-Kommentar jede Glaubwürdigkeit nimmt. Unter dem Titel „Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States“ (Zunahmen der COVID19-Fälle erfolgen unabhängig von der Impfquote in 68 Ländern und 2947 Bezirken in den USA) stellen zwei Top-Wissenschaftler ihre Ergebnisse vor (siehe S.V. Subramanian & A. Kumar, Eur. J. Epidemiol. 2021, in press; das Manuskript wurde nach ordentlichem peer-review als kurze Originalarbeit zum Druck akzeptiert). Der Erstautor, Dr. S. (Subu) V. Subramanian ist „Professor of Population Health and Geography” (Bevölkerungsgesundheit und Geographie) an der renommierten Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA). Er zählt weltweit zu den Top-Wissenschaftlern seiner Fachdisziplin.

Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States

(2021 Sep 30)

At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days (Fig. 1). In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days.

Estimating clinical severity of COVID-19 from the transmission dynamics in Wuhan, China


As of 29 February 2020 there were 79,394 confirmed cases and 2,838 deaths from COVID-19 in mainland China. Of these, 48,557 cases and 2,169 deaths occurred in the epicenter, Wuhan. A key public health priority during the emergence of a novel pathogen is estimating clinical severity, which requires properly adjusting for the case ascertainment rate and the delay between symptoms onset and death. Using public and published information, we estimate that the overall symptomatic case fatality risk (the probability of dying after developing symptoms) of COVID-19 in Wuhan was 1.4% (0.9–2.1%),

Harvard Study Finds COVID-19 Fatality Rate Far Lower Than World Health Org Suggests


A glimmer of hope in the midst of a pandemic that has ground the world to a halt: A new study from Harvard University and University of Hong Kong finds that COVID-19 might have a lower fatality rate than originally suggested.

According to the study published in Nature Medicine last week, only 1.4 percent of people who contracted the novel coronavirus in the epicenter of the disease, Wuhan, died from it.
