Re: Bad News CDC, read the release / some details about this CDC case study that have been overlooked conveniently it seems

 
 Since this Delta variant , the vaccination issue and break through cases is having a market impact thought this info might be pertinent here. 
 
  Stumbled onto some info  on twitter which had some links to Reddit.  The CDC is using this data to  scare people about break through cases  then you find out the circumstances and the non-disclosure by the CDC and WAPO etc. of those unique circumstances.  Seems like they took a unusual situation and normalized it suggesting the general population is at risk like these folks were.  Hardly.
 
 
 Turns out the outbreak was in Provincetown and occurred during something called Bear week.  This is a gay party week in the area, apparently many who attended were part of this "break through"  case study including one below. Not exactly your normal population sample. 
 
 Here a twitter feed on the subject from  a Gay activist who attended and taking the CDC to task on their lack of disclosure :
 
 
 Then this from one of the people who attended Bear week and picked up Covid despite being vaccinated.  Link to a discussion on Reddit  and his post on the subject... it puts a whole new light on this issue.
 
 

I'm one of the P-Town Positives, and I feel like the CDC is missing a key detail

NSFW.

Like many gay men, I thought the vaccine made me invincible and I had a year's worth of pent-up sexual frustration, so I partied hard in P-Town during July 4 week.

I tested positive a day after I left, with some cold symptoms that lasted a few days.

People are understandably worried about the CDC data showing breakthrough cases in P-Town, but I feel like they've left out a rather large variable. I suspect it may have something to do with offending gay men, so allow me to tell you a little bit about my week.

*Ahem* Cue Jeff Foxworthy voice ... You might get a breakthrough case:

  • If you're packed into the A-House shoulder-to-shoulder with 300 other people

  • If the 300 people around you are dancing hard and panting all over you

  • If you make out with 2 (or 5) of those people in the club per night

  • If you go home with one (or 5) of those men per night and have lots of hot bear sex

  • If you wake up in the morning and have some more sex (FYI: gay sex involves kissing)

  • If you go to a crowded brunch and kick your immune system in the ass with 4 mimosas

  • If you repeat the above six activities with complete strangers every day for a week

Do most people live their regular daily lives this way? I certainly don't.

Every single guy I talked to was fully vaccinated, so I don't even know how an unvaccinated person would get COVID because they didn't seem to be in P-Town that week.

It was a rude awakening that the vaccine does not make me invincible -- but the shot still worked miracles. I barely got sick. All of my vaccinated friends who I lived with for the week tested negative. The cases in P-Town are already plummeting. Without the vaccine, I imagine cases would have been 5,000+ with dozens of hospitalizations and a handful of deaths -- with Delta spreading uncontrollably throughout the rest of MA. But instead, the state numbers seem to be plateauing.

I'm embarrassed for being part of the statistic that put MA on the national news. I'm horribly sorry to anyone I've indirectly infected. I've learned an important lesson. But I'm not quite sure it's a representative case study of the average MA population.

My point is... To everyone worried about the P-Town data: I wouldn't get too nervous going to the grocery store just yet -- unless you tend to have orgies at Market Basket.
