Still infectious

In response to Doug Rorison’s letter dated July 15th, I would like to state that the push to vaccinate everyone would appear to solve the problem, but in fact, will not.

Dr Kerry Chant, Chief Health officer NSW, stated that: “even if you are vaccinated, you can still be infected and can still be infectious”. Her statement is supported by many other professionals in the field.

Health officials led people to believe that things can go back to normal after the majority are vaccinated, then later did a backflip and then said that many of the former restrictions will still apply. This would probably be due to the inability of the vaccines to prevent transmission of the virus.

This puts paid to the dire need for a “vaccine passport”. Why mandate a passport if transmission of the virus is little different for the vaccinated as opposed to the unvaccinated?

The drug Ivermectin has been passed for use in treating COVID-19 infection, so, let the restrictions off and treat the vulnerable and affected ones and we will save lives and the economy.

Gary Richardson, Lockyer.
