In the following article, the acronym RKI refers to the Robert Koch Institute, the German public health agency that is roughly equivalent to the CDC in the USA.

RKI changes statement: the probability of infection after vaccination cannot be quantified
Secretly, sneakily and quietly, the RKI has changed important passages on information about the vaccination — in particular, the reduction in the transmission of the virus can suddenly no longer be “quantified”. Information on the protective effect is now also missing.
The entire current corona policy, with 3G, 2G and 1G, is based on the assumption that those who have been vaccinated pass the coronavirus on far less than those who have not, as the journalist Boris Reitschuster reports on his homepage.
Accordingly, it has always been said that the risk of transmission is significantly lower due to the vaccination. Otherwise the partial return of the once inalienable but now declared “privileges” to the citizens would make no sense. But since November 2 the following passage has been found on the RKI website:
“To what extent the vaccination reduces the transmission of the virus cannot be precisely quantified at the moment.”
It goes on to say: “All in all, the risk that people will become PCR-positive despite being vaccinated and transmit the virus is significantly reduced, even with the Delta variant.” But it is not at all defined what “clearly” means in numbers.
Strikingly, on the same page the Robert Koch Institute asserted on August 27, 2021: “Further findings indicate that even with people who have positive PCR despite vaccination, the viral load is significantly reduced.” But the decisive factor is another phrase that was still posted on November 1— and is now missing:
“From a public health standpoint, vaccination appears to reduce the risk of virus transmission to the extent that vaccinated people no longer play a significant role in the epidemiology of the disease.”
However, this passage and similar statements by Health Minister Spahn and RKI boss Lothar Wieler were the basis for the “privileges” for vaccinated people.
In addition, the following passages have been deleted from the page:
- “The vaccination has a high protective effect (at least 80%) against severe COVID-19, regardless of the vaccine used (Comirnaty from BioNTech/Pfizer, Spikevax from Moderna, Vaxzevria from AstraZeneca).”
- “The current data also show that vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine as well as with mRNA vaccines leads to a significant reduction in SARS-CoV-2 infections (symptomatic + asymptomatic) (protective effect about 80-90% after the second dose of vaccine).”
Instead, the following formulation can now be found:
“However, it must be assumed that people after contact with SARS-CoV-2 will become PCR-positive despite being vaccinated and will also excrete infectious viruses.”
However, the RKI also declares that “the virus excretion in people who have a SARS-CoV-2 infection despite being vaccinated is shorter than in unvaccinated people with SARS-CoV-2 infection” — but how much exactly? Hours, days, weeks? The authority does not provide any information on this.
Afterword from the translator:
Why does all of this remind me strongly of a liar squirming after being found out? And these guys are pathological ones, in my cynical opinion.
