Breakthrough COVID-19? Testing sites not screening for vaccinated persons. How can 1 in 5000 be accurate? Not in my recent experience.
I contracted COVID and tested positive on 8/21. Of the 10 cases in the clients and staff at the treatment facility I was staying at 5 of us claimed to have been vaccinated. All with symptoms, none at the house were asymptomatic. I know one other person who has been sick for nearly two weeks who was vaccinated. We were all sick with the nasty and odd symptoms like no taste and smeIl. I describe it as a disease all to its own. Testing sites are not screening for vaccinated or non vaccinated so I don't know how anyone can get a real number on chances of breakthrough. Thats 6 cases out of 11 I have been in contact with in the last few weeks have been in vaccinated persons. Makes me worry for elderly and vulnerable people because even with the vaccine it was nasty.
