i believe his comments are related to this study:

"The SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant is poised to acquire complete resistance to wild-type spike vaccines"


That paper is plenty scary, as it suggests that the current immunization with the pfizer vaccine for the initial version of the virus may actually enhance the infectivity of a new variant

It does not…a new variant will just be better at avoiding vaccine induced antibodies, no reason for it to be more infectious

they discuss in the paper how antibody dependent enhancement can occur
