People still don’t get it about Covid 

Posted on November 15, 2022 by Ryan Dahlman


Why confuse the issue with a bunch of facts: Regarding the Covid letter to the editor that appeared November 1. 

I agree that Fauci said vaccinated people can transmit Covid. Neither he nor Pfizer ever hid this fact. However, most people who get vaccinated enjoy a shorter, less severe, period of illness resulting in less spread. 

See sources for this near the end of this opinion. From Statscan (, there are 46,025 Covid deaths so far in Canada, with 36,991,991 people, that give us a rate of 0.124%. 

A rate quoted in the article is only 0.03%. 

“The COVID-19 situation continues to change, sometimes rapidly. Doctors and scientists are working to estimate the mortality rate of COVID-19. At present, it is thought to be substantially higher (possibly 10 times or more) than that of most strains of the flu.”( 

We will never know how many more would have died had we not vaccinated, but we do know that Covid is a lot worst than the flu. If the claim that Covid was only the flu re-named then why didn’t we just use a flu vaccine? 

“Those with three jabs are most likely to be hospitalized” are you nuts! 

I will eat mine if you can provide a proper source for this tidbit. I get the impression that the Nov 1 article author is implying vaccines are spreading covid. 

“All COVID-19 vaccines currently approved …. are effective against COVID-19, including against severe disease, hospitalization, and death” and “Fully vaccinated persons are less likely than unvaccinated persons to acquire SARS-CoV-2” ( 

I agree preventative measures such as masks and separation cause huge health issues, however dying sucks more. I do not need to quote any reliable sources here unless we all think the earth is only 6000 years old.
