Collecting and analyzing samples of PCR threshold cycle (Ct) data from one major contact laboratory in Wisconsin, the study revealed that both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals have similar viral loads in nasal swabs during the Delta variant COVID-19 surge. While the White House, supported by chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, declared that the current pandemic is of the “unvaccinated,” the data across multiple sources and studies depict a very different reality. TrialSite reported on outputs from a study of Medicare data (Project Salus) indicating mass infection occurring among vaccinated people.
