Recently, New York major league baseball teams, the Yankees and Mets, have opened their stadiums to an increasing number of fans but have decided to create two-tier spectators by dividing the vaccinated from the unvaccinated, so one group doesn't infect the other. I agree. Having learned now from actual data that those who have been vaccinated are more likely to spread Covid than those unvaccinated, this will ensure the safety of the unvaccinated.

Everything I have read has stated that current data shows the opposite of what is stated here. People who have been vaccinated are less likely to spread the virus than those who are unvaccinated.

The author mentions "actual data" that shows a higher transmission rated from the vaccinated. Can he share it here?
