HK Researchers: Pfizer BioNTech Covid-19 Vaccine is 32 Times Less Effective Against Omicron

According to experts from Hong Kong, the Pfizer BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine is less effective against the B11529 Omicron Strain. Studies revealed that the new variant reportedly reduced the mRNA induced antibodies by at least 32-fold.

The scientists who originate from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) studied the BNT 162b2 mRNA vaccine developed by BioNTecg. The firm partnered with mainland Chinese drug manufacturer Fosun Pharma to distribute the jab to China and surrounding areas.

Additionally, BioNTech partnered with Pfizer to handle distribution outside of China.

The findings, which were published on December 12th, found that the omicron variant reduced the vaccine-induced bodies by at least 32 times. They discovered this through blood analysis from 10 people who got the two-dose vaccine in November 2021.

The neutralising antibodies induced by the mRNA vaccine dropped from 320 units to a minute 10 units for the omicron strain. At least 25 units are needed to protect against infection.

Malik Peiris, a HKU virologist, said: “We can see most individuals had high level of virus-killing activity against the original SARS-CoV-2 [strain], but this ability was markedly reduced by 32-fold or more against the omicron variant.”

The scientists also noted that additional research is required to fully understand how the mutations on the omicron variant’s spike protein – which the virus uses to enter human cells – affected its sensitivity to vaccines. Reportedly, the B11529 strain possessed more than 35 mutations on its spike protein alone.

As a result, the researchers called on the elderly and those from vulnerable groups to line up and get their booster jab.

“It will be important for those who are at higher risk, including older age and those with immunocompromised conditions or other chronic diseases – such as diabetes and high blood pressure – to take booster doses of vaccine as soon as possible,” Peiris said.

David Hui Shu-cheong, CUHK respiratory expert and pandemic adviser to the special administrative region, said: “We expect that vaccines may still have a protective effect against severe disease and death. It is therefore important that all those who are eligible for vaccination get fully vaccinated.”

This is what late stage lies look like… having gone unchallenged for so long, the entropy of their narrative produces atrophied calculations of the brain, with no relationship to reality.

No vaccine is effective aganist this non existing virus. They are damaging and killing humans. Ivermectin help reduce the severity of vaccine adverse reactions. If someone is suffering from a post vaccine syndrome, FLCCC clinicians and a growing network of colleagues have reported significant clinical responses to ivermectin. Because Ivermectin has 5 different mechanisms of action against coronaviruses, the medication is also effective with the different variants of the virus. Get your Ivermectin while you still can! ivmpharmacy.com

This is after all a publication that gets its info from official government sources! Boris was saying that Omicron is going to be far more aggressive (tsunami like) than previous variants (a bit of clairvoyance coming in). Time for a far more aggressive vaccine recipe – and the oral doses of medication they were designing pre-Omicron.
Does anyone know who runs the Daily Expose?
Its not Blackrock or Vanguard by any chance?

So now The Expose is willing to accept that there is indeed a dangerous new variant called Omicron and that possibly it might be sensible to get your jabs and a booster? Why don’t i just stick to the BBC and Chris Whitty?
