Ottawa nurse COVID-19 positive even after getting vaccinated

A nurse in Ottawa named Santosh Baral tested COVID-19 positive even after getting vaccinated.

Santosh received his second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on 8th Jan and was tested negative on 13th Jan.

According to Santosh Baral he was speechless when he was tested positive for Covid-19 last week during a routine test.

Santosh works at a long-term care home and there are positive cases over there.

No other person has been tested positive for Covid-19 after receiving both the dose of vaccine.

Santosh also said he is fine and has no symptoms so far. He is staying home self-isolated until it is safe to go back to work.

According to Dr. Zainab Abdurrahman it takes about a week to 10 days after getting the second dose of vaccine before becoming fully immune.

If a person is exposed to virus during that period he might get infected.

Zainab also said that Moderna vaccines and Pfizer-BioNTech are 95% effective which means there is a small chance a person could get infected by Covid-19 even after being vaccinated.

Dr Abdurrahman also said it is still unclear if a person who has been vaccinated can be immune to Covid-19 but can still carry the virus.

Scientific director of Ontario, Dr. Peter Jüni it is very hard to say if Santosh Baral has COVID-19 or just carrying the virus.

So even if you have been vaccinated for Covid-19 it is still recommended to where a mask and maintain social distancing as you still can be a threat to others.
