Positive test doesn't necessarily mean nurse has contracted illness, experts say
Straight face reporting from Canada's own official propaganda outlet
An Ottawa nurse has tested positive for COVID-19 about two weeks after getting vaccinated, and experts say there are a number of possibilities why that might be.
Santosh Baral said he was "speechless" when his results came back positive for COVID-19 last week after a routine test.
The positive test comes after receiving his second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Jan. 8 and testing negative on Jan. 13.
There are positive cases at the long-term care home Baral works at, but he said to his knowledge, no other person who has received both doses of the vaccine has tested positive for COVID-19 since.
He received both doses and still contracted the virus. What he knows or doesn't know about others is irrelevant- he's fully mRNA experimented upon.. er, I mean vaccinated.
Baral said he feels fine, but is at home self-isolating until he is sure it is safe to return to work.
"I thank God I [don't] have any symptoms so far, but who knows whatever is happening in my body. So definitely I have some anxiety," Baral said.
Immunized could still carry and transmit COVID-19
Clinical immunologist and allergist Dr. Zainab Abdurrahman said there are a number of possibilities why Baral could have tested positive.
It takes up to a week to ten days after getting both vaccinations before becoming fully immune, so depending on the timing, she said a person could be exposed to the virus before the doses take full effect.
The nurse was fully vaccinated for nearly two weeks
Abdurrahman added that while both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are 95 per cent effective, "there's a small chance that you could still catch COVID-19 after you're fully vaccinated."
Hilarious- does the bull$h*t never end? Any Doctor truly worth his pay would know that 95 percent efficacy does not equal 95 percent effective.
