But if the results are valid and show inefficacy, then how do you explain 94.6% of infections coming from placebo group?
Pots, i believe i already showed you the reasons, and you can see for yourself in the pfizer trial data.
The 95 % number was calculated from only 169 infected people, in wish 9 were in the vaccinated and 161 on the placebo. So 161 of the placebo were infected and 8 (94/95% of 169), in the vaccine were not, this is where they come up with the 95% number. But the study purposely throws the rest of placebo and vaccinated participants in the garbage, wish in the case of placebo is (21.500 - 161) = 21339 total participants in placebo and (21.500 - 8) = 21.492 of the vaccinated, who were also not infected and also should be taken in count, but they were ignored just because they were not infected. That is a stupid.
In the vaccinated group only 8 were infected, so, this is less 161 people of the 169 who were not infected (95%). They must use the 169 number as base number to do the calculation, they remove 169 random people from the vaccinated group (21.500) and insert it equally in the 169 total number of infections, in a hypothetically sense, just to equal the placebo and vaccinated to come up with only 8 of the vaccinated group being infected, thus 95%.
The fatal error, is that they ignore that 21.339 placebo didnt get infected in the same conditions . Do you know what is the rate of 21.339 placebo non infected compared to 161 infected in the same placebo group? Yes, its 94,6% of placebo not being infected at all. What about
the vaccinated group? What is the rate of 21.493 vaccinated non infected compared to 8 infected in the same vaccine group? Its 99,9%.
If we compared both, 94,6 vs 99,99, vaccine group efficacy is insignificant comparing to placebo, wish shows vaccine = useless. This is the good and well done method. It means the efficacy of the vaccine is as equal as placebo, wish is nil.
But i had already explained the same thing earlier..............................................................
Looks like they're doing the same kind of thing with adolescents too.
"I’m so happy to see this — this is amazing,” said Akiko Iwasaki, an immunologist at Yale University. If the vaccines’s performance in adults was A-plus, the results in children were “A-plus-plus.”"https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/31/health/pfizer-biontech-vaccine-adolescents.html
Of course, children's results would be better, as they are even less affected by Covid than adults.
