A leading scientist in Netherthand was very upset and want to un-friend me after I told him that the data from England showed that more fully vaccinated people has been killed by the Chinese virus than unvaccinated people.
Here is my reply (to him) on 12/8/2021:
As a world leading scientist, you should know that the effectiveness of the vaccines belongs to the domain of observational sciences in which we cannot control a lot of governing factors as we can in experimental sciences. Any data on the vaccines is subjected to a lot of un-controlled factors so that it is very hard to draw the correct conclusion. This is the kind of issues we need to consider when we interpret the data.
It is so sad that you (should be an outstanding scientist) ignore the data that opposes your opinion. Please recall this statement that make us (the scientists) proud of:
Even a fool will gather information that supports him/her.
But only the scientists will gather information that opposes them.
I am worrying that un-informed people just believe what they want to believe, such as, vaccines are all good. Please consider this fact:
In 2017, the Philippines suspended a large-scale vaccination drive after the French drugmaker Sanofi Pasteur found that its dengue vaccine, Dengvaxia, could have unintended consequences in patients who had never been infected with the mosquito-borne virus.
Analysis found people who received the vaccine could suffer a more serious case of dengue if they were later infected. By the time the rollout was stopped, more than 730,000 Filipinos had received Dengavaxia.
Vaccines are just another engineering products, and they can give you un-expected results.
