An expert who has consulted said that we still have to be cautious.
new York- Can I spread the coronavirus after being vaccinated?
this is possible. Experts say the risk is low, but they continue to study the extent to which the vaccine reduces the spread of the virus.
Available vaccines are very effective in preventing people from developing the severe Covid-19 disease.
However, although the immunized person does not get sick, they can catch it without symptoms. Experts believe that the vaccine will also reduce the chance of these people spreading the virus.
Dr. Robert Gallo, a virologist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, said: “People who are vaccinated can better control the virus, so the chance of transmission will be greatly reduced.”
So far, the existing evidence includes: Studies have shown that even if someone is vaccinated, they are infected and that they carry fewer coronaviruses in their noses than people who are not immunized. This makes it difficult to spread.
In order to solve this problem, the United States began to study college students who are willing to undergo daily nasal tests.
Given the uncertainty and the emergence of more infectious variants, experts say that fully vaccinated people should continue to wear masks and continue to socialize in public places and when visiting unimmunized people, when they become more likely to suffer severe At the time of symptom, it was infected.
Gallo said: “We still have to be cautious. Vaccines are essential. But it is not a panacea. The epidemic can end tomorrow.”
There are other issues that may affect the ability of immunized people to spread the virus, such as the vaccination rate in your community or outbreaks in your area.
Dr. Laraine Lynn Washer, an infectious disease expert at the University of Michigan, said: “We want to see it as all or nothing, but it is a very specific situation.”
