Data from a new study confirm that people who get vaccinated should continue to wear masks in public because they can still get vaccinated – and possibly shed.
The researchers studied viral levels during the diagnosis in 869 patients, including 632 who were asymptomatic. Most infections were caused by the highly contagious delta type of corona virus.

According to a report published on the MedArchive on Tuesday before Monday’s review, they averaged between vaccines and unprotected individuals, either with or without symptoms, or between different age groups, genders or types of vaccines. There was no significant difference in viral load statistics.
“Our study does not provide information on infectious disease, noting that virus transmission is affected by a number of factors, not the status of the vaccine and the viral load,” said Richard Michelle Moore of the University of California, Davis.
“It’s not fair to assume that because you’ve been vaccinated you can’t be infected or infect anyone else, even if it’s asymptomatic,” he said.
The COVID-19 vaccine reduces the risk of infection and the severity of the infection. However, people vaccinated against COVID-19 should still wear masks in public because they can infect others if they infect themselves.
