A recent study suggesting that people who are not vaccinated for COVID are causing more car accidents than those who have been vaccinated is sparking outrage around the world, the Daily Mail reports.
The Canadian researchers based in Toronto claimed that the unvaccinated are 70% more likely to be in car accidents where at least one person was hospitalized, than those who are vaccinated. They then suggested that the unvaccinated should pay higher car insurance premiums.
The study was immediately mocked by those on social media, with some claiming this is not science but rather political science with an agenda, noting that there is a difference between correlation and causation.
The following tweet was posted by Dr Vinay Prasad, a hematologist-oncologist and health researcher at the University of California San Francisco, in response to the study.
‘This also repeats the dumb idea that primary care doctors should specialty counsel unvaccinated people about driving,’ Dr. Prasad added.
