Every single human being that tested positive for COVID-19 at a health conference in Germany had had at least two doses of the COVID “vaccine.” After the conference, 109, or 14 percent of attendees, tested positive for COVID-19.
According to a report by The Epoch Times, approximately 4,462 people attended the conference in Berlin in the fall of 2022. Just 1,355 filled out a survey and only about half of those were tested after the conference, researchers said in the new paper, published on June 13 by JAMA Network Open, a journal from the American Medical Association.
In comparison, of the people who filled out the survey and tested negative after the conference, 98 percent were vaccinated and 62.5 percent had proven prior COVID-19 positive test. Although a positive test means very little:

That means that a person’s vaccination status “was not associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection during the congress,” Dr. Alaa Din Abdin of Saarland University Medical Center UKS and the other authors wrote. SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes COVID-19.
On the other hand, prior infection was “significantly associated” with testing negative, and staying in private accommodation versus a hotel was associated with a higher infection rate.
The conference in question was the 122nd Annual Congress of the German Society of Ophthalmology. It took place from September 28 to October 2, 2022. People attended the conference in person for the first time in three years. –The Epoch Times
Researchers claim the higher rate of infection can be blamed on Omicron. “This higher rate could be because the congress took place during the Omicron surge, which was locally and temporally different compared with the variants in other studies,” they said, adding later that “the Omicron variant had a much higher transmission rate and lower vaccine efficacy due to immune escape of the new subtype.”
A survey of attendees of a different conference, hosted in the United States by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), found recently that all the people who responded and tested positive had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Ten of the in-person respondents, all of whom were vaccinated and had received a booster, said they tested positive for COVID-19 within a week of the conference. Seven had to miss work and four developed symptoms, but none were hospitalized.
