The COVID-19 coronavirus scam 
The COVID-19 coronavirus scam has been exposed. Massive hat tip to activist Julian Rose, whose work I have followed for years.

Julian’s account was just posted here at DavidIcke.com. I will reproduce it in full below.

I believe it explains much of how the numbers were inflated and how this whole coronavirus crisis – make that coronavirus psy op – was pulled off. As someone wrote on a YouTube video comment recently, coronavirus = crowning achievement of the government’s psychological warfare operation (corona = crown). Make no mistake – this is a massive psychological operation. The entire alternative media and conspiracy research community – and the whole world – owe deep respect and gratitude to those have seen this coronavirus scam for what it is: people such as Jamie Lee (A Plane Truth), Jon Rappaport (NoMoreFakeNews.com), David Icke (DavidIcke.com) and others.
Now the job remains to inform and alert people as much as possible so together we can end this ridiculous shutdown and lockdown fiasco. Meanwhile, it remains as important as ever to watch Bill Gates (and all the other NWO manipulators who pulled this outrageous stunt) very, very closely.

The Insider Account from Julian Rose
[Some minor spelling changes made – Ed.]
“The below was sent to me by a widely respected professional scientist in USA. While we may know it’s a scam – this insider evidence on the methodology of the madness is second to none. Please use!! The following is from a medical forum. The writer prefers to stay anonymous, because presenting any narrative different than the official one can cause you a lot of stress in the toxic environment caused by the scam which surrounds COVID-19 these days.
I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.

This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most Coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel Coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.

The ‘gold standard’ in testing for COVID-19 is laboratory isolated/purified coronavirus particles free from any contaminants and particles that look like viruses but are not, that have been proven to be the cause of the syndrome known as COVID-19 and obtained by using proper viral isolation methods and controls (not the PCR that is currently being used or serology/antibody tests which do not detect virus as such). PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome.

The problem is the test is known not to work.
It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analyzed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery. Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.

The Mickey Mouse test kits being sent out to hospitals, at best, tell analysts you have some viral DNA in your cells. Which most of us do, most of the time. It may tell you the viral sequence is related to a specific type of virus – say the huge family of coronavirus. But that’s all. The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.
And that’s not even getting into the other issue – viral load.

If you remember the PCR works by amplifying minute amounts of DNA. It therefore is useless at telling you how much virus you may have. And that’s the only question that really matters when it comes to diagnosing illness. Everyone will have a few virus(es) kicking round in their system at any time, and most will not cause illness because their quantities are too small. For a virus to sicken you need a lot of it, a massive amount of it. But PCR does not test viral load and therefore can’t determine if a(n) osteogenesis is present in sufficient quantities to sicken you.
If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis.
And coronavirus are incredibly common. 

A large percentage of the world human population will have covi DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well or sick with some other pathogen.

Do you see where this is going yet? 
If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus.
They are incredibly common and there’s tons of them.

A very high percentage of people who have become sick by other means (flu, bacterial pneumonia, anything) will have a positive PCR test for covi even if you’re doing them properly and ruling out contamination, simply because covis are so common.

There are hundreds of thousands of flu and pneumonia victims in hospitals throughout the world at any one time.

All you need to do is select the sickest of these in a single location – say Wuhan – administer PCR tests to them and claim anyone showing viral sequences similar to a coronavirus (which will inevitably be quite a few) is suffering from a ‘new’ disease. Since you already selected the sickest flu cases a fairly high proportion of your sample will go on to die.
You can then say this ‘new’ virus has a CFR higher than the flu and use this to infuse more concern and do more tests which will of course produce more ‘cases’, which expands the testing, which produces yet more ‘cases’ and so on and so on. Before long you have your ‘pandemic’, and all you have done is use a simple test kit trick to convert the worst flu and pneumonia cases into something new that doesn’t actually exist.

Now just run the same scam in other countries. Making sure to keep the fear message running high so that people will feel panicky and less able to think critically. Your only problem is going to be that – due to the fact there is no actual new deadly pathogen but just regular sick people, you are mislabeling your case numbers, and especially your deaths, are going to be way too low for a real new deadly virus pandemic.

But you can stop people pointing this out in several ways.
1. You can claim this is just the beginning and more deaths are imminent.


Use this as an excuse to quarantine everyone and then claim the quarantine prevented the expected millions of dead.
2. You can tell people that ‘minimizing’ the dangers is irresponsible and bully them into not talking about numbers.
3. You can talk crap about made up numbers hoping to blind people with pseudoscience.
4. You can start testing well people (who, of course, will also likely have shreds of coronavirus DNA in them) and thus inflate your ‘case figures’ with ‘asymptomatic carriers’ (you will of course have to spin that to sound deadly even though any virologist knows the more symptom-less cases you have the less deadly is your pathogen).

Take these 4 simple steps and you can have your own entirely manufactured pandemic up and running in weeks.
They can not “confirm” something for which there is no accurate test.”
BOOM.

Meanwhile last week, Antonio Hodgers, the head of Geneva’s executive, announced a ban on the erection of further 5G mobile antennas in the canton, according to an interview on RTS.
le News reported “motivated by uncertainty on the potential health effects of the new technology, the temporary freeze is the most the cantonal government can do to stop the rollout of the technology. The governments of both Geneva and Vaud have now put the brakes on 5G rollout in their territories by putting a freeze on permits to erect further 5G antennas.”
Other Swiss cantons are following the developments in Vaud. A similar parliamentary motion has been put forward in Geneva and the parliament of Valais will discuss the issue when it next sits.

Comment by the NYT Coronavirus Investigation Team
The Swiss have stopped further roll out of G5 towers causing “covert 19” health issues to the public. 
This so called mystery “covert 19” illness is radiation poisoning causing the body to defend itself by flushing out poisons from cells, in turn causing lungs and kidneys to slowly fill up with fluid. 
Why can’t the Australian government do the same and stop the roll out of 
more G5 towers, than to destroy peoples health for greed and profit.
We can’t be all used as guinea pigs  over health?

Out of 145.93 million people in Russia there are only 47 reorted deaths from Coronavirus.. these may be older people who were sick woith other illnesses and did not actually die of Coronavirus even though they may have tested positive to a Corona type Virus…

Coronavirus Cases: 6,343
Deaths: 47
Recovered: 406

The Biggest Deception On The Whole World End Game Plan
Cororavirus is not the problem .....
what were are seeing is the symptoms of a virus
Our bodies are reacting to radio spectrum radiation
or radio frequency radiation
Globally I was the head of Vodaphone 2013-to 2015
I was privy to the 5G technology
which is dangerous to humans
With the introduction of AI, they are all going to be on a smart grid using 5G technology
in the form of a matrix
Vodaphone are in partnership with Huawei, which is a leading global provider of information


and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices.
The frequency they are using..
external signal from satellites into building..
Previous different radio frequency..
Causing cell poisoning which is effectively radiation
The body will create a virus to help erradiate these viruses
5G is reacting to human cells...
we are seeing cell poisoning..
the body are trying to 
All the is ocuring in the world
is the reaction of the human bodies
this is the largest global cover up in human history
what is happening is not the Corona Virus ....that is what is killing people
 Wuhan China is where they rolled out 5G radio frequency which poisonous to the cells
and it has a flue type characteristic..... so they are using the Coronavirus as a ruse..
to blame it on the Coronavirus..
Places like London where they have a lot of 5G Towers and strong 5G network signals..
Italy has more deaths than other countries because Italy is heavily saturated with 5G..signals..
The older generation doe snot have the immune system to fight against it..
Italy has rolled 5G out,,
Spain has rolled 5Gout...
Most major cities have rolled it out around the world..
and countries such as the UK,,
London is one of the biggest CCT centres in the world..
they are in the process of rolling out 5G
it is not the Coronavirus that is killing humans..
it is   categorically  ...  unequivocally ... killing the people..
Why are they allowing it?
Because if multiple agendas...
primarily because 5G is the only Internet network with the speed to handle the future and where we are going..
rapidly ... they are creating a world run by AI.. Artificial Intelligence..
The Internet of things where everything is interconnected on the Internet ...
including a new global currency that is coming out...
That is why I have been pushing what I have been pushing for the last five years in Africa......
with our own digital currency ... to combat what was coming...
In addition to that there will l be driver-less cars...
There will be a number of different things...
They can not reverse the implementation of this technology...
and they are happy for the sacrifice of millions of lives around the world...
Just to prove the point further..
the cruise ships were installed with 5G...
so the people that were quarantined on the crew ships.. they were cruise ships that had 5G..
and that is why the people were getting sick..
Hospitals have 5G...
Major cities have 5G
so these are places where people will automatically get sick where people are exposed to inordinate levels of radiation..
through radio spectrum  and poisoning...
ok let me move on...
we've had three pandemics in the last 120 years...
The first pandemic was in 1918...
which was called the Spanish Flue Pandemic...
This is when they introduced and invented radio waves globally..
and increased electrification of our universe...
Guess what happened...?  
Millions of people died six months later.... 
with a pandemic they called the Spanish Flue Pandemic ...
Roll on a number of  years.... 
World War Two .. just after that another pandemic ...
which was caused by the implementation of radar equipment globally..
satellites went up circling plant earth ..
a mirage of different satellites went up into what they call the Van Allen belt ..
basically is where they store and send satellites ...
so when that was implemented .. again .....
the last major pandemic was in 1968..
which was called the Hog Kong Flue...
Guess what they did then..
they rolled out another level of satellite penetration in the Van Allen radiation belt ..
over 100,000 satellites.... that were transmitting radar signals .... radar filed in the cosmos 
these were satellites that were pushing telecommunication and radar communications..
So we had radio waves first at the beginning of the century...
they implemented radar and telecommunication satellites ...
These causes pandemics that killed multiple millions of people 
the last one was in 1968 ...
So guess what's happening now..
they are rolling out 5G ..
and this impacting people's lives... killing people around the world ...
they are covering it up in the name of Cororavirus ...
That is a fact .. please and do your study.... study 5G .. the implications of the implementation of 5G..
Just to help you further... one of the countries which is a huge country that had... millions of people
a huge country with cold weather .. Russia.. has had no fatalities in the area of coronavirus..
Why?
Because they have not implemented 5G on a public usage yet... they have only implemented for exclusive use by the military... 
hence why they have  no fatalities in the area of coronavirus..   
just to explain further...
In the news now... people without underlying health issues... are dying ..even young people are dying...
the radiation does not compromise ... young or old... you will Succumb  to the power of radiation ....
This is the fact that is really ocuring ...
this is their strategy... because of the importance of 5G to those in control of planet earth...
and this 5G roll out is a global  phenomenon  that can not be reversed..
There is a lot more information I can give you.... in 17 minutes... 
please trust me .. do some research...
There are some scholarly articles out there on the impact of 5G .. like the Boston Health Group that investigated contagions
and they basically said that one of the viruses the Spanish  Flue and even this one.. is not a contagent ...
what they ate doing is spreading it to people by the testing .. so when you are tested they are giving you a virus to cover up what the 5G radiation is causing 
Three new strategies
1, Vaccines to give you disease
and chemicals that will light you up and respond more effective to the signal
they are buying time to build up the hospital as mortuaries ... 
Our nervous system is an electric circuit of wiring in our body..
we react to frequencies .. vibrations ,, gamma rays, ex-rays , infra red,,
ultra violet light invisible light
 frequencies  effect out sense of well being..
how can be combat this... because all of us emit frequencies out heart ...
the electromagnetic power of our heart...
we do omit  frequencies..
we do not use these terms in bible terms
Fire of God-- Spirit .. all of these things can be scientifically proven.. as electrification of our beings..
Either we generate it or atmosphere ... 
when we get together and have worship  and prayer .. we call it spiritual energy..
we call it the holy ghost..it is physical energy that can be felt..
so the game plan of the New World Order..
Unfortunately it is the era of The New World Order has commenced..
this is why in the last five year I was pushing my economic model with presidents throughout Africa...
to give them an alternative ,,,to the digital currency and the economic model that will sustain them independent of the world bank and independent of this New World Order.. controlled by the 1% of the 1% Ruling Elite...
Now ... what are they doing .. you will see in the news today...
there is announcement of the vaccine that will come ...
as I said there will be three developments
1, Vaccines  which will come which will have catastrophic impact on our physical being...and help use be more exposed to the radiation
2. Secondly ... the vaccines will come with a tracking device called a RFI Chip ... which is a micro ship which will be inserted at the same time as the vaccines... 
This will give them the ability to track...
" In The Name of ...who has had a Vaccine and who has not had a Vaccine"..
that these people are no longer a treat to humanity...based  upon this spurious extensible notion of the coronavirus..
which is a big fallacy .. it doesn't exist.. in the context of what is killing us all ..


3. The third is the implementation of digital currency..and digital asset ...
A Global Digital Currency .. it will start with the US ...and it will roll out around the world..
and this is why I have developed our own block chain platform with our own digital currency pegged to minerals in the ground..
So Africa can have it's own independence and so Africa can have it's own position to other currencies that would be strong in trading against other currencies...and capital and financial markets.. that is what your paster has been working on behind the scenes besides preaching in the ministry 
Let me say .. this is hailed a new era of the mark of the beast ...
It is here.... it is real ... it is now .. it is expediting rapidly because they realise there is a level of esoterical  enlightenment going through the earth .. there is a level of technology that will fast track other people's agenda that is in opposition to their agenda. .. and the ruling elite will want to shut it down ...
So what are they doing systematically .. systemically ... and simultaneously .. they are shutting global economies down ... because they want to introduce ... two things:
(a) A new level of monopoly... or oligopolies... these are 4 of 5 five key multi national companies ...
Amazon will be the first
Google is obviously one
there will be others... that will manage the supply chain of everything that we purchase,,,, 
where everything will be streamlined .. economics -- the flow of money ..everything..
(b) the second they are doing with this new system  .. other than creating these oligopolies...
they are shutting the Global markets down for that ...
they want to make as many people as possible unemployed..
Please do not believe everything they are telling you that they are talking about stipens and 
grants of payment to help the self employed ... for people who have been made redundant..
to any degree that is going to effect the livelihood of people .
we are heading for the largest global recession the world has every seen...
because they are changing the game...
So what they are bringing now .. they are bringing in The New System...
The new block chain global digital currency ... 
which we will not have access to unless we can prove we are no longer any harm to humanity...
by having the vaccines which will be mandatory .. they will enforce them on us ..
and 
secondly...they will insist that we have to take the chips which is part of simultaneous process...
Why are they shutting Global Economies down..?
Because they want to take control back from  entrepreneurs
and take control back from family offices .. family businesses..
They want to completely disrupt the  fabric of society as we know it.... education ... employment..
everything will be completely different... in a matter of months .. not even years...
So this is the strategy of the ruling elite..
to ultimately control in terms of visibility of technology such as 5G Internet and all that gives them access to in terms of 
things... and the control of money .. if you control money .. you control gold and the power ..
So that is their agenda... and obviously they also want to control the population.
Bill Gates .. has  resigned from his position as chairman of Microsoft ... 
and as the chairman of the Belinda Gates Foundation he is now pushing the vaccine agenda 
Bill Gates has developed technology  ... he has been responsible for a lot of this ...
So ,, please .. those who have held Bill Gates as an innovator .. Bill Gates in innovating for the demise of humanity...
Vaccines have always been a danger to humanity. ...
Vaccines contain pathogens that are harmful to our human body...

The Sperm problem
Sperm swim straight however with 5G radiation sperm swims  around in circles and no particular direction ...

Intermittent fasting strengthens our immune system ..strengthens our electromagnetic flow ,, our electric  electromagnetic system likes lime which thought was spiritual but is actually scientific ... they improve our body and strengthens us ... so Olive Oil and different things have components that have electro-light elements in it that strengthen our physical body ... fasting does that ... it helps our immune system immensely ... so we can ... fight against the corona .. fight against these radiations of the frequency ...  but more importantly create a heavenly sound ... that will combat what the enemies have planned up to now ...  God Bless You .. We Love You ...

Revisionist History: Vaccines and the "Spanish Flu" of 1918-19
DID A VANCCINE EXPERIMENT ON U.SOLDIERS CAUSE THE "SPANISH FLUE"?
The 1918-19 bacterial vaccine experiment may have killed 50-100 million people
by Keven Barry,  President First Freedoms, Inc.. November 7, 2018
Part 1 of a 5 part series

The  "Spanish Flu" kills an estimated 50-100 million people during a pandemic in 1918-19. 
What is the story we have told about this pandemic isn't true?


What if, the killer infection was neither the flu not Spanish in origin?
Newly analyzed  documents reveal that the "Spanish Flu" may have been a military vaccine experiment gone awry. In looking back on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, we need to delve deeper to solve this mystery.

Summary
The reason modern technology has not been able to pinpoint the killer influenza strain from this pandemic is because influenza was not the killer.
More soldiers died during WWI from disease than from bullets.
The pandemic was not flue. An estimated 95%9 or higher) of the deaths were caused by bacterial pneumonia, not influenza/a virus.
The pandemic was not Spanish. The first cases of bacterial pneumonia in 1918 trace back to military base in Fort Riley, Kansas.
From January 21-June 4, 1918, an experimental bacterial meningitis vaccine cultured in horses by Rockefella Institute got Medical Research in New York was injected into soldiers at Fort Riley.
During the remainder of 1918 as those soldiers - often living and traveling under poor sanitary conditions- were sent to Europe to fight they spread bacterial at every stop between Kansas and the front line trenches  in France.

One study describes soldiers "with active infections (who) were aerosolizing the bacteria that colonized outposts their noses and throats, while others -often, in the same "breathing spaces" - were profoundly susceptible to invasion and rapid spread through their lungs by their own or others' colonizing bacteria." (1)

The  "Spanish Flu" attacked healthy people in their prime. Bacterial pneumonia attacks people in their prime. Flu attacks the young, old and immune compromised.
During WWI, the Rockefeller Institute also sent the antimeningococcic serum to England, France, Belgium, Italy and other countries, helping spread the pandemic worldwide.

During the pandemic  of 1918-19, the so-called  "Spanish Flu" killed 50-100 million people, including many soldiers. many people do not realize that disease killed far more soldiers on all sides than macine guns or mustard gas or anything else typically associated with WWI.

I have personal connection to the  "Spanish Flu". Among those killed by disease in 1918-19 are members of my parents' families. In my father's side, his grandmother Sadie Hoyt died from  pneumonia in 1918. Sadie's sister Marian also joined the Navy. She dies from "the influenza" in 1919. On my mother's side, two of her father's sisters died in childhood. All of the family members who died lived in new York City. I suspect many American families, and many families worldwide, were impacted in similar ways by the mysterious  "Spanish Flu"..

In 1918, "influenza" or flu was a catchall term for disease of unknown origin. It didn't carry the specific meaning it does today. It meant some mystery disease which dropped out of the sky. In fact,  influenza is from the Medieval Latin "influential" in an astrological sense, meaning a visitation under the influence of the stars.
Why Is What Happened 100 Years Ago Important Now?
Between 1900-1920, there were enormous efforts underway in the industrial world to build a better society. I will use New York as an example to discuss three major changes to society which occurred in NY during that time and their impact on mortality from infectious diseases.

Comment:
This is completely debatable if we take a larger view of what society is and what society should be...and what there cities are designed to do which is... herding people into an unnatural environment which is unnatural and disconnecting people from their natural design ,,,"
One has to question whether the creation of city was really creating a better society ... 
" by herding people into an unnatural environment of unnatural design".

1. Clean Water and Sanitation
In the late 19th century through the early 20th Century, New York built an extraordinary system to bring clean water to the city from the Catskills, a system still in use today. New York City also built over 6000 miles of sewer to take away and treat waster, which protects the drinking water. The World Health Organization acknowledges the importance of clean water and sanitation in combating infectious diseases. (2)

2. Electricity
In the late 19th century through the early 20th century, New York built a power grid and wired the city so  power was available in every home. Electricity allows for refrigeration. Refrigeration is an unsung hero as a public health benefit. When food is refrigerated from farm to table, the public is protected from potential infectious diseases. Cheap renewable energy is important for many reasons, including combating infectious diseases.

3. Pharmaceutical
In the late 19th century through the early 20th century, New York became the home of the Rockefeller Institute for medical Research (now Rockefeller University). the Institute is where the modern pharmaceutical industry was born, The Institute pioneered many of the approaches the pharmaceutical industry used today. including the preparation of vaccine serum, for better or worse. the vaccine used in the Fort Rile experiment on soldiers was made in horses.
US Mortality Rates data from the turn on the 20th Century to 1965 clearly indicates that clean water, flushing toilets, effective sewer systems and refrigerated foods all combined to effectively deduce mortality from infectious diseases BEFORE vaccines for those diseases became available.
Have doctors and the pharmaceutical manufacturers taken credit for reducing mortality from infectious diseases which rightfully belongs to sandhogs, plumbers, electricians and engineers?
If hubris at the Rockefeller Institute in 1918 led to a pandemic disease which killed millions of people, what lessons can we learn and apply to 2018

The Disease Was Not Spanish
While watching an episode of American Experience on PBS a few months ago, I was surprised to hear that the first cases of 
" "Spanish Flu" occurred at Fort Riley, Kansas in 1918. I thought, how is it possible this historically important event could be so badly misnamed 100 years ago and never corrected?

Why "Spanish?".
Spain was one of a few countries not involved in World War 1. Most of the countries involved in the was censored their press. Fee from censorship concerns, the earliest press reports of people dying from disease in large numbers came from Spain. the warring countries did not want to additionally frighten the troops, so they were content to scapegoat Spain. Soldiers on all sides would be asked to cross no man's land into machine gun fire, which was frightening enough without knowing that the trenches were a disease breeding ground.
One hundred years later, it's long past time to drop "Spanish" from all discussion of this pandemic. If the flue started at a United States military base in Kansas, then the disease could and should be more aptly named. In order to present future disasters, the US (and the rest of the world) must take a hard look at what really caused the pandemic.
It is possible that one of the reasons the Spanish Flu never corrected is that it helps disguise the origon of the pandemic. If the origin of the pandemic involved a vaccine experiment on US may prefer calling it Spanish Flue instead of The Fort Riley Bacteria of 1918, or something similar. The Spanish Flu instead of The Fort Riley Bacteria of 1918, or something similar. The Spanish Flu started at the location this experiment bacterial vaccine was given making it the prime suspect as the source of thebacterial infections which killed so many.
It would be much more difficult to maintain the marketing mantra of “vaccines saves lived” if a vaccine experiment originating in the United States during the years of primitive manufacturing caused the deaths of 50-100 million people.
“Vaccines save lives …. except we may have killed 50-100 million people in 1918-19” is a far less effective sales slogan than the overly simplistic “vaccines saves lives”.

The Disease Which Killed So Many Was Not Flue Or A Virus. It Was Bacterial
During the mid-2000’s there was much talk about “pandemic preparedness”. Influenza vaccine manufacturers in the United State received billions of taxpayer dollars to develop vaccines tomake sure we don’t have another lethal pandemic “flue”, like the one in 1918-19.
Capitalizing on the “flue” part of “Spanish” flu helped vaccine manufacturers procure billion dollar checks from governments, even though scientists knew at the time that bacterial pneumonia was the the real killer. It was not my opinion that bacterial pneumonia was the killer - thousands of autopsies confirm this fact. According to a 2008 National Institute paper, bacterial pneumonia was the killer in a minimum of 93/7% of the 1918-19 autopsies reviewed. It is likely higher than 92.7%. The researchers looked at more than 9000 autopsies, and “there were no negative (bacterial) lung culture results.”

One hundred years later, it's long past time to drop "Spanish" from all discussion of this pamdemic. If the flue started at a United States military base in kansas, then the disease could and should be more aptly named. In order to present future disasters, the US (and the rest of the world) must take a hard look at what really caused the pandemic.

Have doctors and the phareceuical manufacturers taken credit for reducing mortality from infectious diseases which rightfullt belongs to sandhogs, plumbers, electricians and engineers?

Deep Down the Virus Rabbit Hole – Question Everything April 1, 2020 By Makia Freeman
Watch out! The killer virus is coming!
https://thefreedomarticles.com/deep-down-virus-rabbit-hole-question-everything/

Watch out! The killer virus is coming!
Well … maybe not. Behind any pandemic, there are always a long set of assumptions that underpin the medical reports and subsequent political and legal decisions. These assumptions are barely recognizable since they are routinely reported as facts. However, to truly justify everything that’s happening all over the world right now – social distancing, surveillance, censorship, lockdowns, quarantine, medical martial law, economic crashes, new digital currencies, governmental emergency powers – with mandatory vaccinations and human microchipping slated to come – those in charge at the Department of Propaganda have to convince you that those assumptions are facts. So, we’re going to take a journey down the rabbit hole to ask some fundamental questions not only about the coronavirus but also the mysterious entity of the virus itself. What is a virus? Can a virus cross from animal to human? Can it cross from human to human? Did you know the CDC admitted that their beloved PCR test is essentially useless, as it doesn’t tell you whether a virus is causing disease? Is it 100% proven that viruses cause disease in humans anyway? How do the competing theories of germ theory and host theory/terrain theory play into this? So, buckle up, open your mind and get prepared for a ride.

What Is a Virus? 
Mainstream Western Medicine (allopathy) developed due to the influence of the Rockefellers who created it to help sell their petroleum drugs which became the basis for today’s Big Pharma medicines. The Rockefellers and other NWO (New World Order) central banking bloodline families overtook the schools and curricula for Medicine, and shut down competition like homeopathy, via the Flexner Report.

The Rockefellers made sure that allopathy would be purely focused on pharmaceuticals and blocked proper nutritional knowledge from doctors.

This is the same mainstream medical system that sets the definitions for things like viruses, so let’s begin with a healthy dose of skepticism. This is also the same Rockefeller family that funded the UN (and donated land for its HQ in New York), whose Rockefeller Foundation has co-opted education and whose Rockefeller Foundation released a 2010 paper analyzing how governments could/should react to a pandemic scenario..

 Rockefeller Foundation released a 2010 paper analyzing how governments could/should react to a pandemic scenario..
​According to this mainstream scientific mindset, viruses are entities composed of DNA or RNA fragments (genetic material) and encased in a protein cover and/or lipid (fat) envelope. They are not technically alive, requiring a cell host to replicate. They are tiny – far tinier than a bacterium – and unlike a bacterium they are not a cell, so they don’t have a respiratory, circulatory or nervous system. The virus is said to be right on the border of the living and the non-living.

However, there is an important alternative view of the virus.
The late primal diet/raw meat advocate Aajonus Vonderplanitz (who died in 2013) gave this fascinating interview during the swine flu hoax of 2009, when everyone was freaking out (not as much as with the coronavirus, but in a similar vein to the hyped ebola and zika outbreaks). He claimed the following:
– viruses are created by the body to clean itself when friendly bacteria can no longer break down all the waste;
– all viruses are good viruses, being necessary cellular responses;
– viruses are like a solvent or soap, made by cells to help dissolve and eliminate toxins (a solvent is something that will make the solute [the thing to be dissolved] turn into a solution [liquid]);
– viruses are specific to the cell that created them;
– viruses cannot cross species;
– viruses don’t exist outside of bodies; and
– that the only way that a virus can cross species is if it’s made in a factory and injected, i.e. extracted, kept in a lab, genetically altered and modified, weaponized, then made into vaccines and bioweapons.

Dormant viruses and latent viruses can exist in our bodies all the time without causing disease. The mere presence of a virus in an organism doesn’t tell you anything about the health of that organism. It is quite possible that due to all the toxicity in our world (junk food, GMO crops, chlorinated and fluoridated water, poisoned skies), our body has to make a solvent to help us get rid of the toxins.
Interestingly, the main points in the interview with Aajonus are also explained in this recent video by Australian Tom Barnett.


​What if the body is producing viruses in response to toxicity?
What if their apparent spreading and replication is due to the body making many of them to clean up a mess
​French scientist Antoine Bechamp (more on him below) did experiments that led him to discover tiny particles which he called microzymas and which others have called protids, somatids or exosomes. These tiny particles are pleomorphic (taking on many shapes) and may well go through a life cycle where they begin as ‘buds’ (which is what the word ‘germ’ means etymologically) or offshoots, and later develop into viruses or bacteria. The fact that microbes can be pleomorphic is a very important concept to understand. This idea is also relevant when it comes to understanding what cancer is and how to heal it naturally. In an earlier article Inner Terrain vs. Outer Terrain: Which Do You Emphasize for Good Health?, I explained:
“Bechamp theorized that germs were actually the chemical byproducts, dead tissue and degenerative aspects of a body’s unbalanced state. He stated living entities called microzymas (tiny enzymes) created bacteria in response to host and environmental factors.
“Claiming discovery that the “molecular granulations” in biological fluids were actually the elementary units of life, Béchamp named them microzymas—that is, “tiny enzymes”—and credited them with producing enzymes and were the builders of cells while “evolving” amid favorable conditions into bacteria. Denying that bacteria could invade a healthy animal and cause disease, Béchamp claimed instead that unfavorable host and environmental conditions destabilize the host’s native microzymas, whereupon they decompose host tissue by producing pathogenic bacteria.””

James Hildreth MD from Johns Hopkins University declared:
“The virus is fully an exosome in every sense of the word.”
Piezoelectrical Repair Crews
This video which highlights aspects of the fake coronavirus pandemic also talks of viruses as entities created by the body that do not do any harm and are designed to carry waste. The video creator refers to viruses as a “piezoelectrical repair crew”, with a polysaccharide coating on their heads, who can travel to a damaged cell and facilitate glycolysis (the conversion of sugar into energy). In other words, they go to a cell needing a repair and give it energy (sugar) and electricity (a kind of jump start). According to this viewpoint, blaming a virus for damage is like blaming an innocent helper at the scene of the crime; just because someone saw a crime and came to help does not mean they caused the crime. The situation is similar to the demonization of cholesterol which I have discussed elsewhere; it turns out that cholesterol is an essential nutrient and at the scene of bodily damage to repair it, not because it caused it. By the way, around 8 years ago Berkeley scientists turned harmless viruses into piezoelectric generators.

The Flawed PCR Test; You Might Have the Virus – But So What? That Doesn’t Mean You’re Sick
Even if you strongly believe in germ theory (more on this below), there are some serious problems with the generally accepted method of testing for a virus. It’s called the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test. The PCR test amplifies a specific region of a DNA strand (the DNA target). It is qualitative not quantitative; in other words, it can tell you if a virus is present or not, but it can’t tell you in what quantities, and it can’t make any accurate assessment about whether the presence of that virus or not is enough to cause disease. As I pointed out in my article 6 Solid, Scientific Reasons to Assuage Your Coronavirus Panic, the CDC (US Center for Disease Control) itself admits that a positive coronavirus COVID-19 test (using the PCR method) doesn’t mean the virus is causing the disease/symptoms you may have! These are the actual words of the CDC:
“Positive [test] results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease.”

Is it 100% Proven That Viruses Cause Disease in Humans?
Amazingly, no – it is not. Germ theory is just that: a theory. For those wanting a more technical explanation of this alternative understanding of viruses, check out Dr. Thomas Cowan, Dr. Andrew Kaufman and especially Dr. Stefan Lanka. Kaufman has given some recent interviews with Crrow777 and Richie from Boston where he elaborates upon the idea that viruses have never been proven to cause disease. Both Cowan and Kaufman discuss the tests that were done after the 1918 Spanish Flu (an outbreak which it turns out was caused by EMFs/electrification and/or vaccines) where they had sick people breathe into healthy people’s mouths. The healthy people didn’t get sick. Likewise, they had sick horses sneeze and cough mucus, fluids, droplets, etc. into a bag, put food in that bag, then gave that food to healthy horses. They were unable to make the healthy horses sick.
Dr. Stefan Lanka is the king in this area. He is a German biologist and virologist who came to understand we have been lied to on a grand scale regarding the nature of the virus. He offered a reward of €100,000 for anyone who could scientifically prove that measles was a virus. That case that went all the way to the German Supreme Court where he won. Paul Fassa reports:
“At first it appeared he had lost. But Dr. Lanka took his loss to a higher court with more experts and the backing of two independent laboratories. He wound up not having to pay. It turned out that the “proof” provided was a composite of several different electron microscope images. And the composite involved different components of damaged cells. The composite could not be duplicated. The German Federal Supreme Court confirmed that there was not enough evidence to prove the existence of the measles virus.”

Dave Mihalovic reports in the article Biologist Proves Measles Isn’t A Virus, Wins Supreme Court Case Against Doctor:
“In a recent ruling, judges at the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) confirmed that the measles virus does not exist. Furthermore, there is not a single scientific study in the world which could prove the existence of the virus in any scientific literature. This raises the question of what was actually injected into millions over the past few decades. Not a single scientist, immunologist, infectious disease specialist or medical doctor has ever been able to establish a scientific foundation, not only for the vaccination of measles but any vaccination for infants, pregnant women, the elderly and even many adult subgroups.”
Lanka has spoken out against similar viral epidemics or pandemics, such as the H5N1 bird flu scare (which was being hyped in 2005). Finally, there are even other prominent virologists like professor Peter Duesberg who have stated with solid evidence that HIV does not cause AIDS. Here are some more quotes from Lanka (who speaks German, so translated into English):
“What viruses are there at all, then, and what are they doing?
Structures which you can characterize as viruses there are in many species of bacteria and in simple life forms, similar to the bacteria. They are elements of together-living of different cells in a common cell type which have remained independent


This is called a symbiosis, an endosymbiosis, which has arisen in the course of the process of different cell types’ and structures’ combining, an endosymbiosis which has brought forth the present cell type, that type of cells of which humans, animals and plants consist … Very important: Viruses are component parts of very simple organisms, for instance of the confervacea type of algae, a particular species of a one-celled chlorella alga and of very many bacteria. As existing there, these viral component parts are called phages. In complex organisms however, in particular in humans, or in animals or plants, such structures which you might call viruses have never been seen.

In contrast to the bacteria in our cells, the mitochondria, or the bacteria in every plant, the chloroplasts, which cannot leave the common cell, since they are dependent on the metabolism of the common cell, viruses can leave the cell, since they are not carrying out any survival-vital tasks within the cell.

Viruses, thus, are component parts of the cell which have turned their entire metabolism over to the common cell and therefore can leave the cell. Outside the common cell, they are helping other cells, in that they are transferring construction and energy substances. Any other function of theirs has never been observed.

Those actual viruses which have been scientifically demonstrated to exist are performing, in the very complex processes of interactions of different cells, a helping, a supporting and in no case a destructive function.

Also in the case of diseases, actually neither in the diseased organism nor in a bodily fluid has any structure which you could characterize as a virus ever been seen or isolated. The proposition that there is any sick-making virus whatsoever is a transparent swindle, a fatal lie with dramatic consequences.”

Lanka also drops this bombshell:
“Why then are disease-causing viruses still being maintained to exist?


The school medicine protagonists/practitioners need the paralysing, stupid-making and destructive fear of disease causing phantom viruses as a central basis for their existence:

Firstly, in order to harm many people with vaccinations, in order to build up for themselves a clientele of chronically ill and ailing objects who will put up with anything being done to them.

Secondly, in order not to have to admit that they are failing totally in their treatment of chronical illnesses and have killed and are killing more people than all wars so far have made possible. Every school medicine practitioner is conscious of this, but only very few dare to speak about it. Therefore it’s no wonder either that among professional groups, it is that of the school medicine practitioners that has the highest suicide rate, far surpassing other professional groups.

Thirdly, the school medicine practitioners need the paralysing and stupid-making fear of diabolical viruses, in order to conceal their historical origin as an oppression and killing instrument of the Vatican’s when it was struggling to rise in the world, having developed out of the usurping West Roman army.”

To understand all this, we have to revisit germ theory and terrain theory.
Germ Theory vs. Terrain Theory
In the aforementioned article Inner Terrain vs. Outer Terrain: Which Do You Emphasize for Good Health?, there have been 2 competing theories which have influenced thought in many fields (medicine, biology and many more): germ theory and terrain theory/host theory. This started in the 1800s in France when Louis Pasteur championed the germ theory (the world is full of pathogenic germs, microbes, bacteria, etc. which can infect you if you are unlucky enough) and Antoine Bechamp and Claude Bernard championed the terrain theory (microbes can change from one type to another according to the blood or tissue where they reside). The quote attributed to 1 or more of these 3 men is “the germ is nothing, the inner terrain is everything.”

Pasteur (the same man after which pasteurization is named) won out and germ theory became the more dominant philosophy of the two. This has had the unfortunate effect of making people more scared of their environment and more susceptible to propaganda by Big Pharma (we’re here to protect you; just take your drugs and vaccines and everything will be OK). It has also led people to take less responsibility for their inner terrain, via poor dietary and lifestyle choices, meaning a weakened host and lowered immune system – thus becoming more susceptible to disease. But what if we had it wrong? What if it is far more important to emphasize your own strength, health and terrain than to worry about possible germs floating around everywhere that could kill you? What if this whole coronavirus crisis is making everyone OCD, scared of every surface, scared of basic and natural human contact, forgetful of their internal strength and forgetful of the power of their gut microbiome and immune system?

Can a Virus Cross from Animal to Human, or Human to Human?
According to the people quoted above, the answer is no.
A virus is made specifically by your body for the purpose of healing via excretion and clean-up of toxins.
According to this new way of understanding, a virus is made specifically for a cell, group of cells or organ, so viruses don’t even cross organs, let alone from one human body to another.
Where is a Real Picture of the Virus Causing COVID-19?
In a world where everything – literally everything – is photographed and video-recorded, why are there no actual pictures of the virus, the actual coronavirus supposedly causing all this mayhem? It shouldn’t be that hard to get an electron microscope and take a picture. Why are we only given CGIs (computer generated images)?

The Importance of Iodine and Oxygen Amidst the Coronavirus Crisis
On another note, given all the panic and fear surrounding COVID-19, it is important to revisit some health fundamentals right now – specifically iodine and oxygen.
Iodine is a very important mineral, the only halogen that the body needs. However, if you don’t have enough, the body grabs chemically similar elements (the other halogens: fluorine, chlorine and bromine), all of which are toxic. If you have too much of these, you will get sick. Have you noticed how some nations are spraying chloride bleach on everything in reaction to the supposed killer virus, thus exposing you to more chloride? Also, the 6 GHz frequency (used in many wireless phones, routers and other devices) affects your iodine absorption. One symptom of iodine deficiency is respiratory distress (also a symptom of COVID-19). Iodine deficiency is also implicated in cancer.

5G is undeniably connected to the coronavirus, but we still don’t exactly understand how. 5G was first rolled out in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the outbreak.

. However, not everyone around 5G is getting sick. One possible cause is the new frequency band it will be using (60 GHz or WiGig which is the new name for 60GHz Wi-Fi). Just as the 6 GHz frequency affects iodine absorption, the 60 GHz frequency affects oxygen absorption. In fact, the 60 GHz frequency attenuates or weakens the oxygen molecule. This can lead to O2 molecules not binding so easily to hemoglobin – meaning you don’t take in as much oxygen. This leads to under-oxygenation or hypoxia, the forerunner to disease. Again, just as with iodine, a symptom of oxygen deficiency is respiratory distress (also a symptom of COVID-19).
Hmm … it’s almost as if this virus is providing the perfect excuse and acting as a scapegoat for the toxic chemicals and EMF which are damaging us long-term all the time …

If Viruses Can’t Cross Species, Bodies or Be ‘Caught’,
Then What Happens When One Person Appears to ‘Catch’ the Flu from Someone Else?
This is the key question.
If viruses really are completely different than what almost all of us have been taught to believe, how can we explain apparent viral contagions or viral infections?
Are they real?
Well, certainly many people have experienced getting sick right after being around other people who were sick

The real issue is how?
One possible answer is that the terrain of the recipient was lowered at the point of infection, whether because they were worried or anxious they would get sick (fear lowers the immune system), had the thought they would get sick (and unconsciously gave that thought power) or developed some kind of emotional entrainment or frequency match with the sick person. It’s all about creating a frequency lock. In life, we all have strong and weak moments; in those weaker moments we become more susceptible to disease. The great genius Nikola Tesla said that
 “The day that science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” He also said that “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”



Is catching disease not about “evil germs out to infect us” but rather about our mental and emotional state, our immune system, our microbiome and our susceptibility?
Conclusion: Use This Crisis as an Opportunity to Look at Viruses in a Different Way
It would be wise amidst all the fear over the coronavirus COVID-19 if were to all remember that germ theory is just that – a theory – and that we have the power to take charge of our own health. We can strengthen our immune system with healthy food choices, enough sunshine (vitamin D), sufficient exercise and adequate sleep. We can choose to reduce or eliminate exposure to toxins like fluoride, chlorine, aluminum, mercury and EMF wireless radiation. We can supplement with things that boost our immunity – like vitamin C, antioxidants, iodine and oxygen – and natural anti-viral medicine like olive leaf extract, medicinal mushrooms and oregano oil.
It is a maxim of life that knowledge decreases fear. What if the real conspiracy here is the exploitation of the mass ignorance regarding the true nature of the virus? What if there is no such thing as a killer virus? What if the real virus here is fear itself – fear of the virus, fear of the unknown and fear of death? It hardly bares stating that the NWO controllers are master manipulators who intimately understand how to exploit human psychology. Now is the time for people to dive in and question everything they thought they knew. It is an opportunity to gain new levels of comprehension, understanding and knowledge – so that we may remain free.
After all, we cannot be free if we continue to remain ignorant, else our ignorance will continue to be exploited.

When the luxurious Ruby Princess cruise liner entered Sydney Heads in the early hours of March 19, most were unaware it was a viral bomb poised to detonate in the heart of Australia’s largest city.
As of April 5, 660 passengers from this voyage have tested positive for COVID 19 and 11 have died.
As 7NEWS uncovered during a special investigation, the warning signs were there.
Some chose to ignore them.

Warning signs
An email, obtained by 7NEWS from the highest echelon of the NSW Government, speaks of deep concerns when the ship arrived in Sydney on March 8, 2020 – before 2,700 new passengers joined over 1,000 crew members who’d remained on board, for a cruise to New Zealand.
The sobering email, dated March 13, was from Sarah Marshall, a senior executive of the Port Authority of NSW to her colleagues.
It said the Ruby Princess had arrived in the port on March 8 with ‘158 people who were sick and 13 of whom had a temperature. NSW Health arrived at the OPT [Overseas Passenger Terminal] to screen the sick passengers. This was when Port Authority were alerted to the situation.’
NSW Health, based on those figures, had determined the ship presented a ‘medium risk’ and acted.
Nine of those who were ill were tested for COVID-19 and returned a negative result.
The email noted the ship had advised the Authority’s Vessel Traffic Services [VTS] that they had no ill passengers or crew on board, despite reporting through MARS [the Federal Department of Agriculture’s Maritime Arrivals Reporting System] the numbers of ill mentioned above.
Ms Marshall wrote ‘It has been important for management to review this incident this week to determine what happened, why it happened and how can we avoid this.’
But it was already too late.
In the early hours of March 19, the Ruby Princess slipped back into Circular Quay - the gateway to Australia according to NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard.
The viral epicentre that was the Ruby Princess made its way into the heart of a city of over five million people, and the thoroughfare of the nation.
History repeating
The fate of the passengers on the liner’s sister ship the Diamond Princess should have been fresh in the mind of the operators, Carnival Australia and both the NSW and federal authorities
The Diamond Princess was quarantined in the Port of Yokohama on February 4, 2020 after 10 people on board were diagnosed with COVD-19.
Over 700 of the nearly 4,000 onboard tested positive for COVID-19 and 12 have since died.
Carnival’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Grant Tarling took to the media in late February to reassure crew and future passengers ‘we’ve learned from our recent experiences,’ and the measures would in part ‘enhance the cruising experience so it continues to be an exceptional and safe way to travel.’
The mounting toll of infection and death from the Ruby Princess’s March 19 return to Sydney tells a starkly different story.
A few days before that return, a liner entered Victoria’s Port Phillip Bay.
Onboard were a few passengers with flu-like symptoms.
Michael Outram, the Border Force Commissioner told a press conference, “Victoria Health asked for the passengers and crew to be held onboard while they took swabs. When their results came back negative, everyone was allowed to disembark.”
Outram said the handling was “a very fine example.”
Back on the Ruby Princess
What the passengers who boarded the Ruby Princess on the afternoon of March 8 didn’t know was the ship for their ‘holiday of a lifetime’ was a petri dish of infection.
They boarded blithely unaware of the peril they were about to face.
On March 15, the ship was in Napier, New Zealand when the passengers got the worst news they’d hear on their voyage - because of weather issues, they’d be heading back to Sydney.

One crew member, which wants to remain anonymous, told 7NEWS that explanation was a sham.
“Fortunately, there was a nasty storm conveniently brewing on our intended route so officially, we blamed this,” the crew member said.
There was no mention of the escalating risk of COVID-19 on board.
Closer to Sydney, the ship advised the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment that: ‘128 persons had reported as ill in the previous 14 days.
The symptoms declared by the vessel include 24 persons with temperature over 38 degrees Celsius, 6 persons with muscle aches, diarrhoea, severe headaches or vomiting.’
The federal department passed that information on to NSW Health for the next step.
According to Commissioner Outram of Border Force, NSW Health requested more medical information from the ship’s doctors on March 17.
The next morning they were told a few swabs had been taken for flu.
NSW Health then requested passengers or crew with flu-like symptoms should be isolated, given hand rubs and masks and that announcement be made.
Passenger Bill Beerens told a different story.
“The only thing they done was keep their mouths shut,” Beerens told 7NEWS.
“Not one word was said about anyone on board having the virus and everything was A-OK. The only thing they did say was if you are feeling sick, if you’ve got a temperature or if you’ve got a cough go and see the doctor during business hours.”
The ship sailed on – good food, good cheer, and plenty of booze.
The green light
Commissioner Outram said that when a cruise liner arrives at an Australian port, there three red lights – customs, migration and human biosecurity – that need to go green before passengers can disembark.
On the morning of the March 18, the Ruby Princess told NSW Health they’d collected the swabs and also needed an ambulance for one passenger.
Just after 5pm on that day, NSW Health told the Ruby Princess that an onboard health assessment wasn’t needed – the ship was ‘low risk’ and “you are free to disembark tomorrow”.
NSW Health advised that all passengers should go into self-isolation for 14 days after.
The final greenlight had illuminated.
Farewell Ruby
The passengers – all 2,700 of them left the ship on the morning of March 19.
Bill Beerens recalled social distancing wasn’t anywhere to be seen.
“We were just rushed off like sheep, really it was absolutely terrible, and there was no indication of anybody being sick what-so-ever...nobody,” he said.
The passengers scattered from the terminal by bus, car and public transport to their homes.
Many headed to the airport to fly both nationally and internationally.
Isolation started when they got home, but in transit, some were unknowing incubators and spreaders of COVID-19.
Elisa McCafferty went to the airport and then boarded a long flight on a crowded plane to London.
“If my travelling home infected someone else and they infected someone else...if I’ve helped perpetuate this horrible virus, that’s something I’m going to have to live with,” McCafferty said.
Meantime, Bill Beerens is now at home in Sydney’s west.

He’s slowly recovering from his bout of COVID-19, but his wife Mary is still desperately ill.
His son, Danny, also caught the disease from a brief encounter with his parents on their return.
The blame game
The blame game started shortly after the media reports began.
Pictures of a massive crowd being herded off the ship and into an already quietened city had a dramatic result.
Someone needed to be accountable for the debacle and the choices were NSW Health, Carnival Australia (who own Princess Cruises and operate the Ruby Princess) and Border Force.
Border Force’s Commissioner Michael Outram held a press conference and he lobbed the blame squarely back at NSW Health.
Outram made his point clear – the responsibility for the health issues of the Ruby Princess passengers and crew rested solely with NSW Health.
Avoiding a deadly debacle
As an island nation with around five passenger terminals for cruise lines and around six major international airports, Australia has a long history of successfully defending our biosecurity.
That reputation took a massive dent when the 2,700 passengers were allowed to disembark from the Ruby Princess.
Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd weighed in on what should have happened at Circular Quay on March 19, 2020.
“At a minimum, we should have applied mandatory testing for all 3,000 plus people on board,” Rudd told 7NEWS.
“That’s the only way you’ll know the truth. And then those with the virus are automatically put into a strict quarantine.
“The rest to be in mandated self-isolation with their transportation separately organised so they didn’t put anyone else at risk so that they didn’t put anyone else at risk.”
Staying silent
In preparing the documentary Ruby Princess: Outbreak Unleashed, 7NEWS repeatedly requested interviews with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard and executives of Carnival Australia.
Neither the Premier nor her Minister responded.
Carnival Australia declined an on-camera interview, but provided a statement via email.
As of Sunday, March 5, the numbers of those infected on the Ruby Princess is at 660 and increasing - 11 passengers who boarded that ship have since died.
The NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller announced a criminal investigation into this fatal cruise late Sunday afternoon.

As the Morrison government announced an unprecedented degree of direct state support for the private sector, largely targeted at wage support, the Victorian and NSW state governments brought down a series of legal restrictions on everyday social life that can only be described as totalitarian.
Quite possibly it is a rational totalitarianism, but totalitarianism it is. The coincident moves have brought support and praise from the most unlikely places.
The state governments’ measures — which have been asserted, rather than argued or extensively justified — have been praised as firm and decisive, often as a sort of love letter to nu-style hard man Dan Andrews
The federal subsidy/stimulus scheme, meanwhile, got giddy calls that socialism was here, and that neoliberal economics was dead and buried for ever.
Let’s pull that all up a bit. As your correspondent noted a fortnight/a hundred years ago, the nature of the crisis tilts towards a socialist conception of society, and an acknowledgement of such.

Telstra is hard at work building its 5G network, with it now covering 46 towns and cities. This includes parts of Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Launceston, Toowoomba, the Gold Coast, and more. 
In addition, Telstra's first consumer ready 5G devices - the HTC 5G Hub, the Galaxy S20 family, the Galaxy S10 5G, the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, the Galaxy A90 5G, the OPPO Reno 5G, and the LG V50 ThinQ are available now. 
https://www.whistleout.com.au/MobilePhones/Guides/5g-in-australia-what-you-need-to-know 
So what is 5G?
5G is the next major evolution in mobile network technology. As with 4G before it, 5G is focused on mobile data. 5G will promise three major improvements:
Faster network speeds: 5G networks will be capable of download speeds as fast as 20Gbps. The exact speeds an individual user will get will depend on how the network has been configured, the number of devices on the network, and the device in their hands. The 5G specification states that individual users should see a minimum download speed of 100Mbps. That's the fastest NBN speed as a minimum.
Lower latency: In plain terms, latency is perhaps best described as the time it takes information to get from your phone to the wider internet and back again. The typical latency for a 4G network is around 60 milliseconds, whereas 5G could decrease this to as low as 1 millisecond. This massive decrease in latency will be vital for technology such as self-driving cars, where every millisecond could make a difference in preventing a crash.
More simultaneous connections: 5G will allow more devices to connect to the network at the same time. While smartphone usage continues to grow, this is especially important because 5G is set to facilitate new developments in autonomous cars, connected machinery, and Internet of Things devices.
These improvements mean you could almost call 5G "Fibre to the Phone". The aforementioned have historically been the domain of fixed line networks, which are far less flexible due to the need for a physical link to the internet.

While 5G will succeed 4G, it will not replace it. 4G and 5G networks will exist simultaneously, and Australian telcos intend to keep 3G networks around until at least 2020. 

Why do we need 5G?
There's been plenty of ink spilled about how 5G could change self-driving cars, manufacturing, medicine, and more, but what about you and me? What will 5G mean on a day-to-day basis in terms of your smartphone and internet connection? Right now, there's three popular answers:
More reliable video streaming at a higher quality
Faster fixed wireless internet
"Uh, let's wait and see"
While the potential of 5G is almost limitless right now - we're talking about things like a surgeon operating on a patient thousands of kilometres away using a virtual reality headset and a robot - there's currently no killer app that's guaranteed to drive adoption. But that's okay. We saw the same story unfold with 4G, with plenty of doubt about whether we'd need internet speeds ~this fast~ on a mobile network. 
As 5G networks go live around the world, we'll see people trying to take advantage of ultra-fast connectivity with new applications and technologies. And in the same way that 4G helped bring about real-time video streaming tools like Facebook Live and instant video sharing apps like Snapchat, we'll surely see plenty of weird and wonderful technology brought to life by 5G.

Ruby Princess fiasco: how inadequate rules helped fuel a pandemic

Ruby Princess fiasco: how inadequate rules helped fuel a pandemicThe Ruby Princess is Australia's single-biggest source of coronavirus infections. Inq examines the rules that allowed it to dock in Sydney.

THE RUBY PRINCESS CRUISE SHIP OFF THE COAST OF SYDNEY (IMAGE: AAP/JOEL CARRETT)

The federal government has made a key change to the information it seeks from cruise ships in light of the escalating scandal of the Ruby Princess.
The change is an apparent admission that insufficient detail was given on the health of passengers on board the ship, though who is responsible for the failure — the company or health authorities — remains unclear.
The ship, the single-biggest source of COVID-19 infections in Australia, accounts for more than 500 infections Australia-wide and for five deaths.
A week after the Ruby Princess docked, as confirmed cases of COVID-19 infections were spiralling across Australia, the federal government changed a key question on a standard pre-arrival form which ships’ captains are required to complete.
The information they declare matters because it shapes the assessment which health authorities make.
When the Ruby Princess docked on March 19 — two weeks ago today — the ship was asked to answer “yes” or “no” to the question of whether any passengers or crew had:

Persistent coughing and difficulty breathing with no apparent cause and no history or similar symptoms (but not persistent coughing and difficulty breathing caused by asthma, heart disease, obesity, chronic bronchitis or emphysema). 

The question was revised on March 25, a week ago, to ask whether any passengers or crew had:
New coughing illness which developed in the past two weeks (but not caused by an existing chronic disease e.g. asthma, heart disease, obesity, chronic bronchitis or emphysema).  Yes or No.
The Federal Department of Health told Inq the question was revised to “align” it with screening processes used for ill travellers on arrival, and to “address feedback from stakeholders” that the question as it was previously worded was not clear regarding reporting of COVID-19 symptoms.
“The decision to change the wording of the question was supported by the chief human biosecurity officers in each state and territory,” a department spokesman said. (The role of chief human biosecurity officer at the federal level is occupied by the chief medical officer Brendan Murphy.)

The change was clearly aimed at flushing out any new coughing illness developed over the past 14 days. 
 But medical practitioners see the change as being too little, too late. 
Dr Chris Moy, president of the Australian Medical Association of South Australia — a state which has been affected by a large number of cruise ship cases from NSW — said the change was “quibbling at the edges”.
“Although there is a clarification on the matter the far bigger issue is using common sense above nitpicking about individual criteria,” he said.

Yet why would a cruise ship docking at an Australian port on March 19 — with the virus pandemic gathering pace around the world — have any doubt at all about the intent of a question about the health of passengers?

The federal government’s change — as unnecessary as it may seem — lays bare the defence being adopted by international cruise lines to account for infected passengers leaving their ships: that the government didn’t ask the right question.

And it underscores the risks inherent in a self-reporting regime under which a cruise company is asked to volunteer information which is potentially damaging to its reputation and to its bottom line. 

Carnival Corporation, which owns the Ruby Princess, has refused to answer Inq’s questions on precisely what information it gave in answer to the health question as it appeared on the Maritime Arrivals Reporting System (MARS).

The system is designed to document biosecurity risks, carried by humans on board a ship or by a ship’s cargo. It is operated by the Federal Department of Agriculture which shares information with state health departments and the Australian Border Force. 

NSW Health has also refused to answer the question of whether or not Carnival provided full and accurate information on the risk on board the Ruby Princess. An elderly woman was removed from the ship shortly after docking at 2.30 on the morning of March 19 and was taken by a waiting ambulance. She died six days later. 
The silence from Carnival and NSW Health points to the breakdown of a system which has become riddled with conflicts of interest and which has seen a blurring of the lines between the regulator and the regulated. 

Medical judgments on board the Ruby Princess — which might or might not be prejudicial to the business — are in the hands of doctors employed by Carnival. Carnival’s chief medical officer, Dr Grant Tarling, is at the same time senior vice president of the multibillion-dollar Carnival Corporation, which is listed on the US and UK stock exchanges. 

It is unclear who can compel the production of medical information given the Ruby Princess is registered in Bermuda and subject to the law of Bermuda — a jurisdiction known for the favourable conditions it offers shipping owners. 
To date, Carnival has relied on the defence that it was acting on approvals from NSW Health, but did tell NSW Health that some of its passengers exhibited “flu-like” symptoms.
Yet in the case of the Ruby Princess — a leading “stakeholder”, to use the Federal Health department’s language — it is hard to see how there could be any doubt about the intention of the health question it was asked.  

Even before the Ruby Princess docked in Sydney on March 19, Tarling’s world had exploded with COVID-19 outbreaks on other ships.  
In Japan, the Diamond Princess had been forced to hold 2000 passengers in quarantine off the coast of Japan for more than a fortnight. 

In the US, on March 7, two crew members of Carnival’s Regal Princess had to be tested for COVID-19, leading to a delay in the ship docking.
In the US, on March 8, the Royal Princess was subject to a no-sail order after it was discovered a crew member had been transferred to the ship from the Grand Princess cruise ship.
Off the coast of California, the Grand Princess had been sitting in quarantine after a passenger died due to COVID-19 infection.
That drama began on March 4 and continued through to March 16 when all passengers and more than half of the ship’s crew members were taken off the ship.
Perhaps most concerning, on March 17 (in the US), as the Ruby Princess was closing in on Sydney, the US Centre for Disease Control issued a preliminary report which pointed to staff involved in food preparation on board the Diamond Princess as hastening the spread of coronavirus on the ship.

The Ruby Princess entered Sydney Harbour on March 19, Australian time. Three crew have since tested positive to the virus and been brought ashore under police escort for treatment.
The cruise industry, led by Carnival, is a major profit spinner for the NSW Ports Authority, a corporatised government body which reports its financial results to the NSW Treasury. The authority makes no bones about the power of the cruise industry.

“Cruise is the fastest growing tourism sector in Australia. It is also a growing trend for Australians, with 1.35 million people, or 5.8% of the population cruising in 2018,” the Port Authority says, quoting from a report commissioned by the cruise ship lobby group, Cruise Lines International Association.

The Port Authority quotes the lobby group’s 2018 estimate that the cruise industry is worth $4.8 billion nationally, with 58% “attributed” to NSW.
The Port Authority regulates the movement of ships in Sydney Harbour. It is paid fees for providing navigation and pilot services. For passenger ships it is paid a $40-per-head berthing fee, which translates to around $110,000 for the Ruby Princess’ 2750 passengers who disembarked on March 19.
For its part, NSW has been investing in the cruise industry. The government released a Cruise Development Plan in 2018, setting out a long–term strategy to develop the industry in NSW, including a possible new terminal in Sydney, a joint project of the NSW Port Authority and the NSW Treasury.

Carnival Corporation is the biggest cruise industry player internationally and in Australasia.  
Last year it reported record total revenues of US$20.8 billion — an increase of US$2 billion over the previous year.

The glamorous image of cruising puts a lick of paint over a business model which relies on exploiting the legal and tax loopholes available in flag-of-convenience countries such Panama and Bermuda. The jurisdictions allow cruise companies to employ crew from countries such as the Phillipines while avoiding labour laws of the UK or Australia.
The revelation of the change to the key health question comes as Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton accuses some cruise ships of lying about the COVID-19 situations on board.

Carnival Corporation’s Australian head office has declined to answer these questions from Inq, provided Wednesday:
Ships — including the Ruby Princess — are required to self-report re illness on board.


Do you accept that on the face of it this is a conflict of interest, given that ships’ doctors are paid by the company?
In the case of Carnival, the chief medical officer, Grant Tarling, is a long-serving and now senior employee of the company.  What assurance does the public have that he is NOT acting in the interests of the company?
Can you shed light on who the on-board doctors are?

NSW Health said that cruise ship voyages into Sydney linked to confirmed COVID-19 cases in NSW were:
Ovation of the Seas, docked March 18 — 74 cases
Voyager of the Seas, docked March 18 — 34 cases plus five crew members
Ruby Princess, docked March 19 — 337 cases plus three crew members
Celebrity Solstice, docked March 19 — 11 cases

As of this morning the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Australia was 4976, with NSW accounting for 2298 of those.

Ruby Princess fiasco: how inadequate rules helped fuel a pandemic
The Ruby Princess is Australia’s single-biggest source of coronavirus infections. So why was it allowed to dock in Sydney? Read more…
Australia is staring down a cruise line problem
The fallout from the Ruby Princess disaster continues to haunt Australia, with a significant portion of our COVID-19 cases now connected with the cruise liner.
As several more ships circle Australian ports, governments face the challenge of what to do with passengers. COVID-19 has brought the cruise ship industry to its knees. But is that a bad thing?
In this special edition of COVID-19 Watch, we investigate.
 
The numbers
More than two weeks ago, the federal government put a 30-day ban on new cruise ships docking in Australia. But exceptions were made for those already headed to port.
One of those was the Ruby Princess, a name now synonymous with staggering incompetence and a communications breakdown between state and federal authorities that allowed hundreds of infections to spread across Australia.
As of Monday, over 440 passengers had tested positive to COVID-19, accounting for around 10% of Australia’s cases.
Cruise ships are also the source of eight of Australia’s 23 COVID-19 deaths (at the time of writing), with five coming from the Ruby Princess. Meanwhile, in Western Australia, 41 people with the virus have recently been medivaced off the Artania, a German ship docked in Fremantle — accounting for 10% of all cases in the state. There are 79 cases linked to Ovation of the Seas in NSW.

The standoff
The WA government and the crew of the Artania are at loggerheads over the ship. The state government and Australian Border Force want it gone, but the crew want to stay another two weeks.
Premier Mark McGowan is worried that letting it dock will encourage more boats. While the passengers have been evacuated, some 450 crew members remain on board.
There are reportedly 18 foreign cruise ships docked or floating in Australian waters, with 15,000 crew members still on board. Many have been docked for weeks, refusing to leave.
To break the deadlock, NSW is planning ($) to helicopter doctors onto ships docked in the state and test more than 8000 crew members, an operation which would involve the military.
Cruise operators argue that leaving people at risk on ships is a humanitarian crisis — most are highly underpaid foreign workers, who would need to be repatriated.
 
It’s big business, but for how long?
Before the pandemic, there was a lot of money in cruises. In 2018, the three biggest players earned US$34 billion in revenue. Australia’s tourism industry has also banked on letting the boats in.
Two years ago, then-federal minister for tourism Steve Ciobo described Sydney as “Australia’s cruise gateway”.
“More ships means more tourists which will help drive economic growth and create new jobs,” Ciobo said.
Cruise Lines International Association Australia claims the industry contributes $3 billion in direct expenditures with a flow-on of $1.3 billion in other services, and more than 10,000 jobs.
Many newspapers also lean heavily on the industry for advertising dollars. On March 14, when cruise cancellations were starting to pick up in Australia and coronavirus deaths in Italy were already in the thousands, The Sydney Morning Herald still ran more than 12 cruise line ads, even as headlines in the paper described the country as heading toward lockdown.
Now, cruise shares have fallen up to 80% and thousands of staff have been laid off. But should we be mourning cruise liners? As The Hustle points out, the industry is built on exploitation and tax evasion. Many ships are registered in Caribbean countries like the Bahamas to minimise tax and avoid Western labour laws.
Workers, largely from south-east Asia and eastern Europe, are paid a pittance — usually between $1-2 an hour.
It’s this structural feature of the cruise industry that makes demands by Australian authorities that the ships “return home” all the more complicated.
A company like Carnival is headquartered in Miami, incorporated in Panama, and has a workforce from across the developing world. Where is home for ships and their crew?
So amid all the finger pointing about stopping the boats, it’s worth noting that it’s underpaid workers, not middle class suburban boomers, who are suffering the most; stuck on disease-ridden ships in foreign waters with no clear way of getting home.
 
Lethal comforts
Maybe something can be gleaned from a classic piece of writing on cruise ships: “Shipping Out” by late author David Foster Wallace, published in Harper’s Magazine in 1996.
For a week Foster Wallace took a cruise around the Caribbean. His resulting slide into what the article dubs “the (nearly lethal) comforts of a luxury cruise” is one of the great pieces of writing on the subject:

“The vessel and facilities were, from what I now understand of the industry’s standards, absolutely top-hole. The food was beyond belief, the service unimpeachable, the shore excursions and shipboard activities organized for maximal stimulation down to the tiniest detail. The ship was so clean and white it looked boiled. The western Caribbean’s blue varied between baby-blanket and fluorescent; likewise the sky. Temperatures were uterine. The very sun itself seemed preset for our comfort. The crew-to-passenger ratio was 1.2 to 2. It was a Luxury Cruise.
“All of the megalines offer the same basic product-not a service or a set of services but more like a feeling: a blend of relaxation and stimulation, stressless indulgence and frantic tourism, that special mix of servility and condescension that’s marketed under configurations of the verb ‘to pamper’.
“This verb positively studs the megalines’ various brochures: ‘as you’ve never been pampered before’, ‘to-pamper yourself in our jacuzzis and saunas’; ‘Let us pamper you’, ‘Pamper yourself in the warm zephyrs of the Bahamas’. The fact that adult Americans tend to associate the word ‘pamper’ with a certain other consumer product is not an accident, I think, and the connotation is not lost on the mass-market megalines and their advertisers.”

​EU 5G Appeal – Scientists warn of potential serious health effects of 5G
https://www.jrseco.com/european-union-5g-appeal-scientists-warn-of-potential-serious-health-effects-of-5g/ 

In an appeal to the European Union, more than 180 scientists and doctors from 36 countries warn about the danger of 5G, which will lead to a massive increase in involuntary exposure to electromagnetic radiation. The scientists urge the EU to follow Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe, asking for an independent task force to reassess the health effects.

“We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, WiFi etc. for telecommunications already in place. RF-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

Initiatiators
One of the initiators is Dr. L. Hardell, Professor of Oncology at Örebro University in Sweden. He states: “The telecom industry is trying to roll out technology that may have very real, unintended harmful consequences. Scientific studies, both recently and over many years, have identified harmful effects on health when testing wireless products under realistic conditions. We are very concerned that the increase in radiation exposure by 5G leads to damage that cannot be reversed”.
Hardell: “The fifth generation (5G) of radio frequency radiation is now being developed. This is done without dosimetric determination or study of the possible health effects. The media praise in particular all the possibilities that this technology promises to offer, such as the self-propelled car and Internet of Things (IoT). The consequences for the health of humans, plants and animals are not discussed at all. Politicians, governments and the media are responsible for unbalanced information. Ordinary people are not informed of conflicting opinions about this technological development. Health effects from radio frequency radiation are a non issue in the media, at least in Sweden, but also in most other countries”.

5G Network
The expansion of the 5G network, intended to enable faster wireless transmission of larger amounts of data, requires the installation of many more antennas in urban areas. In this way, the scientists argue, there is no longer anyone escaping the potentially harmful effects of radiation. After all, we are already exposed to 2G, 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi radiation.

Industry’s influence on studies and safety limits
It has been shown that studies on the health impact of electromagnetic radiation in the past have often been influenced by industry. The scientists insist that independent studies on the effects of 5G radiation “to ensure the safety of the population” should now be carried out. They therefore ask the European Commission to postpone the expansion of the 5G network “until the potential risks to human health and the environment have been thoroughly investigated by scientists independent of industry”.

Problems with official ICNIRP exposure limits for electromagnetic radiation
“In conclusion, this article demonstrates that the EU has given mandate to a 13‑member, non‑governmental private group, the ICNIRP, to decide upon the RF radiation guidelines. The ICNIRP, as well as SCENIHR, are well shown not to use the sound evaluation of science on the detrimental effects of RF radiation, which is documented in the research … These two small organizations are producing reports which seem to deny the existence of scientific published reports on the related risks.” – Appeals that matter or not on a moratorium on the deployment of the fifth generation, 5G, for microwave radiation, L. Hardell & R. Nyberg, MOLECULAR AND CLINICAL ONCOLOGY, 3 Jan 2020.

Response of the European Commission
In question E-003975/2018, Nicola Caputo (S&D) asked the European Commission whether it intends to set up a European task force of independent and impartial scientists on electromagnetic fields to examine the health risks. In her reply the European Commission states that ‘under Article 168 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the primary responsibility for protecting the public from potential harmful effects of electromagnetic fields remains with the Member States, including the choice of measures to be adopted based on age and health status.’

In question P-001526-19 Michèle Rivasi (Verts/ALE) asked for an assessment of biological and health impact of 5G: “The 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership project (5G PPP) is the world’s largest project of its kind, with EUR 700 million in EU funding. The rollout of 5G will expose people to increased microwave and radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation. … Will the 5G PPP fund any study on the biological impact of 5G radiation? Will the Commission conduct any prior impact assessment on the launching of 5G in the EU, in particular as regards human health? Could it explain how an impact assessment would be conducted, or if one has already taken place, could it provide details on how it was done?”

Netherlands: Parliament asks for independent investigation on 5G health risks

In the Netherlands, the Parliament is concerned about the health risks of radiation from the new 5G network. Political parties urgently want to know what the state of affairs is regarding possible dangers before masts are installed on a large scale. GroenLinks urged the Health Council of the Netherlands to carry out an independent investigation into 5G radiation. Member of parliament Laura Bromet: We still do not know about the dangers to public health. Little research has been undertaken into the effects of 5G. We have to take people’s concerns seriously and investigate this.

Resolution opposing 5G by the municipality of Rome
The Rome resolution asks “the mayor to stop the 5G trial and not to raise the limit values ​​in the threshold of electromagnetic radiation avoiding the positioning of millimeter microwave antennas on homes, schools, day centers, recreation centers, street lamps and more.” Rome Councilor Massimiliano Quaresima stated, “I am in favor of technological progress but not on the experimentation of 5G technology in the absence of scientific data on the repercussions for health.”

​Dormant viruses and latent viruses can exist in our bodies all the time without causing disease. The mere presence of a virus in an organism doesn’t tell you anything about the health of that organism. It is quite possible that due to all the toxicity in our world (junk food, GMO crops, chlorinated and fluoridated water, poisoned skies), our body has to make a solvent to help us get rid of the toxins.​  If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis. And coronavirus are incredibly common. A large percentage of the world human population will have covi DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well or sick with some other pathogen. Do you see where this is going yet?  If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus

The E.U. secures 300 million more doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, announced on Friday that it had secured a contract for an additional 200 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, with an option to add another 100 million, in an apparent response to the growing criticism that the bloc had ordered too little and too late.
“Europe will have more than enough vaccines in a reliable time frame,” Ursula von der Leyen, the commission’s president, said during a news conference on Friday, stressing that the combined orders of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines would be sufficient to inoculate 80 percent of the European Union’s population of about 450 million.

Defending the commission’s actions on ordering doses, Ms. von der Leyen said that in the summer it had been impossible to know “which vaccines would have made it,” but that the expansion of Pfizer’s production capacity “illustrates it was right to bet on this particular horse.”
The new contract could double the number of Pfizer-BioNTech doses secured by the European Union from 300 million to 600 million, with the first 75 million ready for dispatch in the spring, though it is now up to member countries to place their individual orders. The original contract, finalized in November, secured 200 million doses with the option for an additional 100 million, which was triggered by the commission in late December.

The bloc also ordered 160 million doses of the Moderna vaccine, which was approved by the European Union drug regulator on Wednesday, moving up a decision that had been scheduled for later in January.
The European Commission has come under fire for not ordering a sufficient number of vaccines, and has been blamed for the slow rollout in its 27 member countries. The European Medicines Agency, the regulator, has also been denounced for not yet having started a review of the University of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, which has recently been approved for use in countries including Britain and India.
The commission has taken the lead in approving, negotiating and securing the vaccines on behalf of its members, and it has pushed back against the criticism, highlighting that the decision on how many doses to buy was made by national governments, and that the rollout itself was strictly national business.
“All the members do their utmost to move forward with the vaccination plan,” Ms. von der Leyen said on Friday. “The beginning is always difficult, it is a logistical challenge.”

Pfizer COVID vaccine trial shows alarming evidence of pathogenic priming in older adults

Some of the world's top vaccine-promoters are warning about unique and frightening dangers inherent in developing a coronavirus vaccine.
Fri Dec 11, 2020 -

.

December 11, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — In the development of vaccines against coronaviruses like SARS-COV-1 and MERS in the early 2000’s, researchers found evidence of a serious problem. Teams of U.S. and foreign scientists vaccinated animals with the four most promising vaccines. At first, the experiment seemed successful as all the animals developed a robust antibody response to coronavirus. However, when the scientists exposed the vaccinated animals to the wild virus, the results were horrifying. Vaccinated animals suffered hyper-immune responses including inflammation throughout their bodies, especially in their lungs.
This issue is well known. Early in the COVID-19 scenario, Dr. Peter Hotez, of Baylor College of Medicine, testified before Congress about the dangers of accelerating coronavirus vaccine development, saying  “(The) unique safety problem of coronavirus vaccines” was discovered 50 years ago while developing the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) vaccine.”
He went to register that this “‘paradoxical immune enhancement phenomenon’ means vaccinated people may still develop the disease, get sicker and die.”

Researchers had seen this same “enhanced immune response” during human testing of the failed RSV vaccine tests in the 1950s.  The vaccines not only failed to prevent infection; 80% of the children infected required hospitalization, and two children challenged with the RSV died (see Openshaw, 2005). In April of 2020, Hotez told CNN, “If there is immune enhancement in animals, that’s a showstopper.”—
There’s been a serious terminology problem with this issue. The problem, of course, is not “immune enhancement,” which sounds like something helpful to the immune system.  In fact, it is quite the opposite. The problem is, in reality “disease enhancement”; in fact, that is what it was called in the original RSV study. Disease enhancement now appears to be caused by initial exposure to a pathogen’s proteins, or parts of proteins, which primes the body to autoimmunity. That is “pathogenic priming.” In COVID-19, every protein in the SARS-CoV-2 has at least one epitope that matches human proteins someplace in the human body. About one-third of the epitopes in SARS-CoV-2 virus that match human proteins match immune system proteins.
The Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee Briefing Document on the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine contains disturbing indications that might be a safety signal on pathogenic priming, especially in older adults. Before those are reviewed, there are fundamental issues with the classification of serious adverse events that reflect the short-term thinking and externalization-of-cost mindset of the vaccine safety science paradigm

.SUBSCRIBE to LifeSite's daily headlines - U.S. Canada World Catholic
The first issue is the categorization of “Serious vs. Non-Serious” adverse events in the study and in the report. To a person experiencing neurologic adverse events including Bell’s Palsy, neuroinflammatory and thrombotic events, these events are not “non-serious” and can, over time, develop into life-threatening conditions that require continuous medical intervention and repeated billable office visits for care. The short-term study excludes any means of detecting whether the initial exposure may play a fundamental root cause role in setting up patients for life-long chronic illness. The vaccine adverse events themselves seen in the Pfizer study may be indicative of pathogenic priming, especially since more serious adverse events were seen with the second dose.
The second issue is that the design and analysis set-up of the study are biased against finding adverse events.

The report states:
“Among non-serious unsolicited adverse events, there was a numerical imbalance of four cases of Bell’s palsy in the vaccine group compared with no cases in the placebo group, though the four cases in the vaccine group do not represent a frequency above that expected in the general population.”
The comparison to baseline rates is meaningless because other vaccines are in use in the population. Thus, any risk due to the COVID-19 vaccine adds to or multiplies existing risk present in the population from other vaccines.
A 10-fold increase of serious adverse events on second dose in older adults on second dose, compared to 3.6-fold for those under 55
Among the 18-55 year-old participants, there were 370 solicited serious adverse events (SSAEs) in the vaccinated group and 73 in the unvaccinated. Of the vaccinated, 18% experienced SSAEs; in the placebo group, only 3% did, implying that SSAEs can be expected at a rate five times greater in the vaccinated compared to the unvaccinated.

These included severe fatigue, headache, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle and joint pain. Whether these conditions represent instances of pathogenic priming, identifying individuals who are now at higher risk of serious morbidity and mortality if they become infected with SARS-CoV-2 is unknown, but given past studies, seems likely.
In the over 55 group, which was a smaller group, there were 60 SSAEs in the vaccinated group and 24 in the unvaccinated. Of the vaccinated, 6.5% experienced SAEs, compared to 1.4% in the unvaccinated, implying a 4.46% increased risk overall of SSAEs due to vaccination.
However, in the older group, the vaccinated group was 10 times more likely to have a SSAE upon receipt of the second vaccine dose than the first dose compared to the 1:1 ratio in the unvaccinated. In the younger group, the vaccinated were only 3.61 times more likely to have second-dose SSAEs than the age-matched placebo group, which had about as many SSAEs in the first and second dose.

Animal trials insufficient
The patients in the study reviewed were healthy — and thus the spectrum of adverse events is not representative of those that might occur if the vaccine comes to market. In the previous animal trials, the first dose was a vaccine, but the second was natural infection, leading to severe injury and often death. In these human trials, both doses were from the vaccine, so it is also not reassuring that these adverse events did not include the more serious and deadly conditions that afflicted animals.
These human trials did not rule out pathogenic priming in any way. Both the Moderna and Pfizer animal studies, which used non-human primates, failed to examine organ sites other than lung, and while they studied potential markers of pathogenic priming, they failed to measure one: interleukin-5 (IL-5), which had been found in prior coronavirus studies to be elevated in conjunction with pathogenic priming-induced disease enhancement.
Recalling that animal studies conducted on prior COVID vaccines found pathogenic priming leading to disease enhancement in older animals more than younger animals, older adults may be at highest risk of serious chronic illness due to autoimmunity resulting from vaccine-induced pathogenic priming. Dr. Anthony Fauci has informed the public that these vaccines do not stop transmission. Therefore, the next dose of the viral proteins in the form of a natural infection for these study participants — a SARS-CoV-2 infection leading to COVID19 — may be their last. The study should be extended to long-term follow up, including any further vaccination or exposure to SARS-CoV-2 viral proteins by infection.

So why have the world’s top vaccine promoters, like Paul Offit and Peter Hotez, been warning us frantically about the unique and frightening dangers inherent in developing a coronavirus vaccine?
In this video footage, Offit, Hotez and even Fauci (in an unguarded moment), warn that any new coronavirus vaccine could trigger lethal immune reactions, “vaccine enhancement,” when vaccinated people come in contact with the wild virus. Instead of proceeding with caution, Fauci made the reckless choice to fast track vaccines, partially funded by Gates, without critical animal studies before moving into human clinical trials that could provide early warning of runaway immune responses.

Gates (in this video) is so worried about the danger of adverse events that he says vaccines shouldn’t be distributed until governments agree to indemnify against lawsuits. On Feb. 4, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, there were only 11 active CV cases in the U.S., yet the U.S. quietly pushed through federal regulations giving coronavirus vaccine makers full immunity from liability.

10 Things You Need to Know about the Experimental COVID Vaccines
Wednesday, January 13, 2021
Freedom Articles
BIOWEAPONS / CORONAVIRUS VACCINES

By Makia Freeman
[experimental covid vaccines]

As the experimental COVID vaccines are militarily deployed worldwide (being the weapon they are), here are 10 things you need to know about these dangerous, transhumanistic tools of destruction.

Experimental COVID Vaccines
are coming to town, being rolled out worldwide as the transhumanistic New World Order (NWO) agenda dictates. This next phase of the COVID scamdemic is an incredibly dangerous one – the phase where authorities take their sovereignty-violating ways a step further by actually penetrating the body with poison disguised as medicine. These new COVID vaccines are even worse than your plain old regular toxic, carcinogenic and mutogenic vaccines, because some of them (the mRNA vaccines made by Pfizer and Moderna) are a dangerously new exotic creature: tools that actively hijack your genes and reprogram them. Here’s 10 things you need to know about the COVID vax, plus a list at the end of the article of just some of the horrendous injuries and deaths it has caused thus far.

Experimental COVID Vaccines: Never-Before-Used Tools to Modify and Program Your Genetics

The COVID vaccines produced by Pfizer and Moderna are called mRNA (messenger RNA) vaccines – a completely new type of vaccine that has never been licensed or used on humans before. We have absolutely no idea what to expect from this vaccine, nor no way to know if it will be effective or safe. Traditional vaccines introduce pieces of a weakened virus to stimulate an immune response. mRNA vaccines inject molecules of synthetic genetic material from non-humans sources into your cells, thus hijacking your genes and permanently reprogramming them to produce antibodies to kill the alleged SARS-CoV-2 virus causing COVID (although, as regular readers of The Freedom Articles know, the virus has never been isolated, purified or proven 100% to exist). These newly created proteins are not regulated by your DNA and are thus completely foreign to your body.

Experimental COVID Vaccines: mRNA Vax is an Operating System
The mRNA vaccines of Moderna and Pfizer could barely be regarded as medicine in the traditional sense. They are transhumanistic tools to synthetically alter you at the genetic level. In fact, Moderna has even admitted on their website that their new COVID vaccines are an “operating system” and the “software of life”:
“Recognizing the broad potential of mRNA science, we set out to create an mRNA technology platform that functions very much like an operating system on a computer. It is designed so that it can plug and play interchangeably with different programs. In our case, the “program” or “app” is our mRNA drug – the unique mRNA sequence that codes for a protein.”

Catherine Austin Fitts has recently been pointing out that these tools are ‘vaccines’ in name only, called so to give them legal immunity from liability, when actually they are operating systems:
“Just as Gates installed an operating system in our computers, now the vision is to install an operating system in our bodies and use “viruses” to mandate an initial installation followed by regular updates. Now I appreciate why Gates and his colleagues want to call these technologies “vaccines.” If they can persuade the body politic that injectible credit cards or injectible surveillance trackers or injectable brain-macine interface nanotechnologies are “vaccines,” then they can enjoy the protection of a century or more of legal decisions and laws that support their efforts to mandate what they want to do.”

“Why are we calling these formulations “vaccines”? If I understand the history of case law, vaccines, in legal terms, are medicine. Intentional heavy metal poisoning is not medicine. Injectible surveillance components are not medicine. Injectible credit cards are not medicine. Injectible brain-machine interface is not a medicine. Immunity for insurance companies is not the creation of human immunity. We need to stop allowing these concoctions to be referred to by a word that the courts and the general population define and treat as medicine and protect from legal and financial liability.”

Experimental COVID Vaccines: Safety Abandoned
Vaccines usually take 7-20 years to adequately research, test and bring to market. The slew of COVID vaccines produced by Big Pharma companies are being rushed to market in less than 12 months, which is nowhere enough time to meet established safety standards. No long-term safety studies were conducted, so no one has any real idea of the danger these vaccines could cause down the line. Many of the trials only lasted 3-4 months. Animal trials, an important part of safety testing, were skipped. While long-term safety is completely unknown, short-term safety looks extremely sketchy (see next section and list of links at end of article). It is no understatement to say that much of the worldwide population has just become Big Pharma’s guinea pigs.

Experimental COVID Vaccines: Dangerous Adverse Effects

The COVID vaccines promote disease enhancement due to pathogenic priming. In other words, they make people sicker than the disease would have. In Moderna’s trials alone, FDA documents record that 13 people died (6 from the vaccine and 7 from the placebo), while the FDA also issued a new warning regarding Bell’s Palsy as a potential side effect (results were correct up until December 3rd 2020). Since the rollout of the COVID vax, doctors and nurses have fainted live on TV (nurse manager Tiffany Dover fainted while speaking to the media about receiving the vaccine, and later died), contracted Bell’s palsy and become paralyzed. Some people have even died following the vaccine, including in places like Miami, Portugal, Israel, Switzerland, Iceland and more (see links in last section of article).

Experimental COVID Vaccines: COVID Vax Only Designed to Stop Mild Symptoms
With the risks of the COVID vaccine so undeniably grave, you might think the benefits are large. Think again. Big Pharma has stated that the vaccine only protects against mild (not moderate or severe) symptoms, which makes the vaccine virtually pointless, given the large majority of people who allegedly have COVID have little or no symptoms whatsoever.
The study Will covid-19 vaccines save lives? Current trials aren’t designed to tell us published in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) by Professor Peter Doshi raises at least 2 very good points about the failure of the COVID vaccines to stop moderate/severe symptoms and to stop transmission. He quotes, among others, Moderna chief medical officer Tal Zaks:

“But what will it mean exactly when a vaccine is declared “effective”? To the public this seems fairly obvious. “The primary goal of a covid-19 vaccine is to keep people from getting very sick and dying,” a National Public Radio broadcast said bluntly. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, said, “Ideally, you want an antiviral vaccine to do two things . . . first, reduce the likelihood you will get severely ill and go to the hospital, and two, prevent infection and therefore interrupt disease transmission.” Yet the current phase III trials are not actually set up to prove either. None of the trials currently under way are designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome such as hospital admissions, use of intensive care, or deaths. Nor are the vaccines being studied to determine whether they can interrupt transmission of the virus.”

“Tal Zaks, chief medical officer at Moderna, told The BMJ that the company’s trial lacks adequate statistical power to assess those outcomes. “The trial is precluded from judging [hospital admissions], based on what is a reasonable size and duration to serve the public good here,” he said. Hospital admissions and deaths from covid-19 are simply too uncommon in the population being studied for an effective vaccine to demonstrate statistically significant differences in a trial of 30 000 people. The same is true of its ability to save lives or prevent transmission: the trials are not designed to find out. Zaks said, “Would I like to know that this prevents mortality? Sure, because I believe it does. I just don’t think it’s feasible within the timeframe [of the trial]—too many would die waiting for the results before we ever knew that.” What about Hotez’s second criterion, interrupting virus transmission, which some experts have argued should be the most important test in phase III studies? “Our trial will not demonstrate prevention of transmission,” Zaks said, “because in order to do that you have to swab people twice a week for very long periods, and that becomes operationally untenable.”“

Experimental COVID Vaccines: COVID Vax Not Designed to Stop Transmission
Likewise, Big Pharma admitted they didn’t design the vaccine to stop transmission.

Therefore, if someone else gets the vaccine, it doesn’t stop them from transmitting the virus to you, and if you get the vaccine, it does not stop you from transmitting the virus to others.

This may be why NIAID head Dr. Anthony Fauci continued to push the dehumanizing agenda when he stated on MSM TV that people should still socially distance and wear masks even after getting vaccinated:

“Obviously, with a 90+% effective vaccine, you could feel much more confident [about not getting sick] … but I would recommend to people to not abandon all public health measures just because you have been vaccinated.”
[genomic virus Fran Leader]
Experimental COVID Vaccines: No Real Isolated Virus Was Used to Make the Vaccine

The vaccine cannot possible be truly effective since it was not based on an actual isolated sample of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The WHO protocols that Pfizer used to produce the mRNA do not appear to identify any nucleotide sequences that are unique to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. I have been covering this point ever since the COVID scamdemic began, especially in articles like SARS-CoV-2: The Stitched Together, Frankenstein Virus where I highight that COVID or SARS-CoV-2 is a theoretical digital virus, constructed from a computer database, that doesn not exist in the real world. Fran Leader questioned the UK MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) about this, asserting that the ‘virus’ was actually a computer generated genomic sequence, and ultimately they confirmed:

“The DNA template does not come directly from an isolated virus from an infected person.”

Experimental COVID Vaccines: WHO Admits There’s No Evidence COVID Vax Works

The World Health Organization chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan Yadav admitted that there is no “evidence on any of the [COVID] vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on.”

Experimental COVID Vaccines: Contains PEGylated Lipid Nanoparticles Which Can Cause Disease

Dr. Frank Shallenberger writes about the dangers of PEGylated lipid nanoparticles which are used to hide the mRNA from our bodies:

“The mRNA molecule is vulnerable to destruction. So, in order to protect the fragile mRNA strands while they are being inserted into our DNA they are coated with PEGylated lipid nanoparticles. This coating hides the mRNA from our immune system which ordinarily would kill any foreign material injected into the body. PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been used in several different drugs for years. Because of their effect on immune system balance, several studies have shown them to induce allergies and autoimmune diseases. Additionally, PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been shown to trigger their own immune reactions, and to cause damage to the liver.”

Experimental COVID Vaccines: Pfizer Vaccine Fallout

An astonishing number of people have been hurt, damaged, injured and killed from the Pfizer COVID vax. Take a look at the following headlines, data and links from our friends at For Our Rights:

CDC data shows that 3,150 people are now “unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work” after vaccination. This is 2.7% of people who took it

Conclusion: Watch Out!
The above are just 10 reasons to watch out for the COVID vax, however for those wishing to dig deeper, I suggest investigating things such as unsafe epitopes (parts of proteins capable of causing immune and auto-immune conditions), ADE (antibody-dependent amplification, long known from experiments with corona vaccines in cats. All cats that initially tolerated the vaccine well, died after catching the wild virus), nanoparticles (graphene and hydrogel) and more, all of which are likely linked to the COVID vaccines. These concoctions take the NWO scheme to a whole new level. The agenda has arrived at your doorstep and, indeed, at your bloodstream.

Everything you need to know about the Pfizer/BioNTech covid-19 vaccine
HEALTH 3 December 2020

Everything you need to know about the Pfizer/BioNTech covid-19 vaccine |

New Scientist
Emergency authorisation will make a vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech available in the UK


UK regulators have authorised a covid-19 vaccine created by Pfizer and its partner BioNTech for emergency use, meaning that vaccine rollout is planned to begin soon. Here, we answer questions about the science of the vaccine, who will get it first, how confident we can be in the authorisation process and the logistics of vaccinating everyone in the UK.

Science

How effective is the vaccine?
About 95 per cent. The phase 3 trials of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine involved 42,000 people, about half of whom got the experimental vaccine and the rest a placebo. In total, 170 people fell ill with covid-19. Only eight of them were in the vaccine group; 162 had received the placebo. So around 5 per cent of cases were in the vaccine group, which is where the 95 per cent figure comes from. That is a very healthy number: the World Health Organization (WHO) has said it would be happy with 50 per cent.

What is in the vaccine?
The active ingredient is messenger RNA that carries instructions for making the virus’s spike protein, which it uses to gain entry to cells. The mRNA is synthetic, not extracted from actual viruses. It is delivered in a tiny sphere of inert fatty material called a lipid nanoparticle.

The RNA-bearing nanoparticles are suspended in saline solution and injected into muscle tissue in the upper arm. The mRNA is then taken up by specialist immune cells, which follow its instructions to make the spike protein, just as they would do if they had become infected with the actual virus.

The spike protein is recognised as foreign by the immune system, which mounts an attack against it. Antibodies, B cells and T cells are activated, according to Uğur Şahin, the chief executive of the small German company BioNTech that co-developed the vaccine with US drug giant Pfizer. An immune memory is also laid down, he says, which means the immune system has learned how to defeat the pathogen and is primed to mount a swift response if it encounters the coronavirus again.

How long does the immune memory last?
It’s hard to say at this point, because the clinical trials weren’t set up to answer that question, and in any case, they only began dispensing second doses of the vaccine four months ago. The WHO says that a minimum of six months would be acceptable. It will become clearer as time marches on and the volunteers continue to be monitored. Sahin says he expects protection to last “months or even years”. Given what we know about natural immunity that looks about right, says Eleanor Riley at the University of Edinburgh in the UK. She envisages people needing annual boosters, at worst.

How long does it take for immunity to develop fully after vaccination?
The trial began assessing immunity seven days after the second shot. We know that protective immunity builds up within four weeks of the first dose, but Sahin says that it appears to develop earlier than that. Further details will be published in a matter of days, he says.

What happens to the mRNA in the body?
It is active for a few days then decays rapidly.

It’s a two-shot vaccine, so what happens if people miss their second shot? Is a single shot still protective?
Two shots are needed, and the second shot is required to attain immunity. The gap between doses in the trial ranged between 19 and 42 days. Only 2 per cent of people in the trial missed their second dose so it isn’t entirely clear what happens under those circumstances.

Are there any side effects?
Sometimes, but they are mild. In the trial, the vaccine was generally well-tolerated, and an independent data monitoring committee reported no serious safety concerns. The worst side effects were fatigue and headaches after the second dose. About 4 per cent of people reported fatigue and 2 per cent a headache. Other side effects were pain at the injection site and muscle pain. These are “common reactions you would have with vaccination”, says Özlem Türeci, chief medical officer at BioNTech. Older adults reported fewer and milder side effects.

Does it work in older people?
Yes. Trial participants were aged up to 85, and the efficacy in people over 65 was 94 per cent – a tiny bit lower than the overall number but still very protective, and much higher than some vaccine experts feared. The vaccine hasn’t been tested in people aged over 85.

What about other vulnerable groups?
The vaccine appears to be equally effective regardless of recipients’ age, sex and ethnicity, according to BioNTech. It has been tested extensively in people who have already had the virus and doesn’t cause any ill effects. It has also been tested in people with “stable” pre-existing conditions – also known as comorbidities – including diabetes, cancer, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and well-managed HIV. Their response was as good as anyone else’s.

People with serious or worsening comorbidities will also be eligible for the vaccine. BioNTech says it has data on this group and will release it in a matter of days.

Does it protect everyone?
No. In the trials, out of about 20,000 people who were given the vaccine, eight caught covid-19 and one became seriously ill. In contrast, 164 people who received the placebo fell ill, nine severely. It isn’t known why some people didn’t respond to the vaccine. But a success rate of 95 per cent is about as good as it gets with any vaccine.

Does it stop people from catching and transmitting the virus?
We still don’t know. The trial was designed to test for symptomatic covid-19 and confirmed infection with the virus. Assessing whether the vaccine prevents transmission – which is probably a prerequisite for attaining vaccine-induced herd immunity – is much harder. But Pfizer says it is carrying out more studies on this important question and will release information soon.

Some vaccines can paradoxically make a disease worse through a process called antibody-enhanced disease. Is that a risk?
Yes, theoretically. But it hasn’t been seen with this vaccine or any other against covid-19, and hasn’t occurred naturally, as sometimes happens with other viruses.

Has the the full data from the trial been published yet?
No, it hasn’t, but there is nothing sinister about that. Companies can release news to the market as soon as they have it, which is a much speedier process than preparing a scientific manuscript. According to Pfizer, every last detail of the science will be submitted to a top-ranking peer-reviewed journal as soon as it is ready. It will then be up to the journal how long it takes to publish.

Eligibility
Who is first in the queue in the UK?
When a vaccine is approved it is customary to first offer it to people who took part in the clinical trial but received the placebo. However, as the trial wasn’t done in the UK, there is nobody in this category.

Care home residents and their carers have the highest priority, according to a priority system devised by the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation. But there are problems with delivering this particular vaccine to care home residents because it needs to be transported at very cold temperatures in special cases that carry around 1000 doses. These cases cannot be broken up for distribution, which makes it very hard to get the required doses into individual care homes.

Next in line are people aged over 80 and frontline healthcare workers, followed by people aged over 75, then people in increasingly younger age groups and/or with underlying health conditions.

Will anyone be excluded from the vaccine programme?
Yes. Pregnant women and children under 16 won’t be eligible, at least at first. The vaccine hasn’t been tested on pregnant women or children under 12, and there isn’t enough data on children age 12 to 15. But trials in those groups are ongoing or planned.

Everyone else can get it?
Yes, but most will have to wait their turn. According to Sean Marett at BioNTech, the exact delivery schedule depends on how fast the factories can churn it out and where else the vaccine is approved, as the company is committed to equitable access. “We will deliver as many doses as we can as quickly as we can,” he says.

Regulatory Process
What does “temporary authorisation for emergency use” mean?
Exactly what it says on the tin. The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has expedited the approval process in recognition of a public health emergency, and could rescind the approval just as quickly. But that is highly unlikely as it says it has done a thorough assessment of the safety and efficacy data and has seen nothing to give it reason not to approve.

Will the vaccine inevitably progress from temporary to full authorisation?
Probably, but it isn’t a given. Pfizer says it expects so, but that is in the hands of the regulators.

Do Oxford/AstraZeneca covid-19 vaccine results stand up to scrutiny?

It all happened very quickly, can we be confident corners weren’t cut?
Yes. The MHRA is an independent body and so is the Commission on Human Medicines, which also had a say in the decision to approve the vaccine in the UK. Even though the MHRA only received the full clinical trial data just over a week ago, the vaccine developers have been submitting information since October, which has been subject to ongoing review.

The European Medicines Agency, the drug regulator that approves covid-19 vaccines for the European Union, said in a statement that its process for assuring the safety and efficacy of the vaccine is based on more evidence and more checks than the emergency authorisation used in the UK.

According to the vaccine developers, the MHRA asked for exactly the same amount of information as any other regulatory agency. It has been working 24/7 to assess it, says Türeci.

Are other countries likely to approve the vaccine soon as well?
Yes. Pfizer/BioNTech have also applied for approval in the US, EU, Australia, Canada, Japan and New Zealand, and say they are preparing to submit applications to other regulatory agencies around the world. Decisions are expected from the US and EU this month.

Logistics
How many doses is the UK getting?

In total, the UK government has pre-ordered 40 million single doses, which is enough for 18 million people assuming double dosing and about 10 per cent wastage. But it won’t get all 40 million at once. The full order will be delivered in batches over the course of 2020 and 2021.

When will the vaccine reach the UK?
The first batch is currently being packaged at Pfizer’s vaccine factory in Puurs, Belgium, and will be dispatched to the UK by lorry and plane as soon as it is ready – possibly as early as the coming weekend. UK health minister Matt Hancock has said he expects the UK to receive 800,000 doses over the next few days.

When will vaccination start?
Again, as soon as possible.

Doesn’t the vaccine require complicated cold storage?
Yes and no. For long-term storage – meaning for six months or so – the vaccine has to be kept at -70° C, which requires specialist cooling equipment. But Pfizer has invented a distribution container that keeps the vaccine at that temperature for 10 days if unopened. These containers can also be used for temporary storage in a vaccination facility for up to 30 days as long as they are replenished with dry ice every five days. Once thawed, the vaccine can be stored in a regular fridge at 2°C to 8°C for up to five days.

What will it take to get a covid-19 vaccine to the world?

Could the supply chain be disrupted on 1 January by the end of the Brexit transition period following the UK leaving the EU?
Possibly. But according to Marett, “if there is disruption we will find another route”.

Where will people be vaccinated?
The usual places: GP surgeries, health centres and hospitals. People will be invited by the NHS. The entire supply is going to the various NHS bodies in the UK and nobody will be able to jump the queue by buying a vaccine privately, according to Pfizer.

Could something still go wrong?
Yes, but that is highly unlikely. Vaccine effectiveness in the real world is almost always lower than efficacy in trials, but the drop-off would have to be spectacular to dip below the 50 per cent threshold accepted by the WHO.

There could still be rare severe adverse effects down the road, especially as mRNA vaccines are a new technology and have never been rolled out on a massive scale before.

Vaccine clinical trials aren’t big or long enough to rule out rare but serious side effects, which sometimes appear months or even years after vaccination. People who have been vaccinated will be followed up for two years to ensure that there are no serious adverse effect waiting in the wings.

But these are small, theoretical risks. As Fiona Watt at the UK Medical Research Council (MRC), said: “This is great news.”

Recent weeks are most likely undercounts.


The year 2020 has been abnormal for mortalities. At least 356,000 more people in the United States have died than usual since the coronavirus pandemic took hold in the country in the spring. But not all of these deaths have been directly linked to Covid-19.

More than a quarter of deaths above normal have been from other causes, including diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, high blood pressure and pneumonia, according to a New York Times analysis of estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Deaths attributed to other causes above normal
Diabetes   15% above normal
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia 12%
High blood pressure - 11%
Pneumonia and flu  - 11%
Coronary heart disease 6%
Stroke 5%
Sepsis 4%
Kidney failure 1%
Note: Data are from March 15 to Nov. 14. Not all causes are included. Deaths from external causes, such as suicides and drug overdoses, are not available because investigations are still underway in most cases.

Some of these additional deaths may actually have been due to Covid-19, but they could have been undiagnosed or misattributed to other causes.
Many of them are most likely indirectly related to the virus and caused by disruptions from the pandemic, including strains on health care systems, inadequate access to supplies like ventilators or people avoiding hospitals for fear of exposure to the coronavirus.

40,000 extra deaths from diabetes, Alzheimer’s, high blood pressure and pneumonia

Research has shown that people with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease are particularly vulnerable to severe illness and death if they contract Covid-19.
In several states, deaths attributed to diabetes are at least 20 percent above normal this year.

Note: Only jurisdictions with sufficient data and deaths above normal that are higher than the national percentage are included. Deaths from New York City are counted separately from the rest of New York State.

Prolonged economic stress on families during the pandemic could also be contributing to increased deaths among those with chronic illnesses.

“You end up having to choose between your prescription medications or buying groceries or keeping a roof over your head,” said Steven Woolf, director emeritus of the Center on Society and Health at Virginia Commonwealth University, whose research in JAMA has also shown deaths from other causes to be higher than normal.

At least 10 states have seen deaths from high blood pressure — a common comorbidity like diabetes — rise even higher than the national percentage. These may include deaths from heart failure, kidney failure or stroke.

Many people who die from high blood pressure are also at high risk for severe Covid-19, so some of these deaths could be Covid-19 deaths that are missed, according to Robert Anderson, chief of the mortality statistics branch at the C.D.C.’s National Center for Health Statistics.

Note: Only jurisdictions with sufficient data and deaths above normal that are higher than the national percentage are included.

Nationwide, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease, which usually affects older adults, are 12 percent above normal this year, with several Southern states seeing larger increases. This could be related to challenges in providing adequate care in nursing homes during the pandemic — deaths in nursing homes account for more than a third of the nation’s total coronavirus toll. The virus may have also aggravated some of these patients’ existing health conditions.

Other factors related to the pandemic like social isolation and challenges in getting emergency services could also have contributed to deaths, Dr. Woolf said.

Many of the higher than normal deaths from pneumonia are most likely Covid-19 deaths that were not identified as such, especially earlier in the pandemic when coronavirus tests were scarce. Chest X-rays from the virus and pneumonia also look especially similar, experts said.

New York City, an early epicenter of the pandemic, has seen pneumonia deaths reach about 50 percent above normal, more than double the percentage in the states with the highest rates.

As the pandemic has progressed, coroners and medical examiners have become better at recognizing the deaths caused by the virus.

Counting deaths takes time, and many states are weeks or months behind in their reporting. These estimates from the C.D.C. are adjusted based on how mortality data has lagged in previous years.
Dr. Woolf also warned that many people who are not captured in mortality statistics may still have adverse health outcomes.
A person who survived the pandemic may end up deteriorating over the next few years because of problems that happened during the pandemic,” he said. This could include those who have missed routine checkups or have had delays in receiving proper treatment for an ailment.

Methodology
Total death numbers are estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which are based on death certificates counted by the centers and adjusted to account for typical lags in the reporting of deaths.
Only weeks in which the C.D.C. estimates the data to be at least 90 percent complete or in which estimated deaths are above expected death numbers are included. Because states vary somewhat in their speed in reporting deaths to the federal government, the data show death trends for slightly different time periods. Weeks in which reported deaths were less than 50 percent of the C.D.C. estimate were not included. Only jurisdictions with sufficient data were included for analysis of deaths by specific causes.
Expected deaths were calculated with a simple model based on the weekly number of deaths from previous years released by the C.D.C., adjusted to account for trends, like population changes, over time.
Excess death numbers are rounded.

mRNA vaccines are a bio-nano operating system installed in your body
Natural News - 
Mike Adams

If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis. All coronavirus are incredibly common. 
In today's Situation Update, we ask if election theater is just a distraction from the much larger bombshell of global genocide against humanity being carried out through mRNA vaccines.
According to Moderna, mRNA vaccines are an "operating system" that runs "software" in your body to produce "applications" which are alien (non-human) proteins. Once your body's cells begin replicating the mRNA sequences, your physiology is owned by the corporations via intellectual property laws, and quantum dot tagging of vaccinated individuals is like the branding of cattle on the global farm run by multinational corporations. In today's important podcast update, we cover the latest election theater and dive into the mRNA conspiracy to achieve global genocide against humanity

Out of Shadows-2020 /78 MIN - Out of Shadows | Documentary Heaven

Out of Shadows is a film that attempts to lift the mask on how the mainstream media and Hollywood try to manipulate and control the masses by spreading propaganda via their platform. Released on YouTube in early April 2020, this film gained over a million views within its first 24 hours after being released,
Out of Shadows it is currently clocking in at just over thirteen million views which means people are certainly taking notice. Right from the get-go we hear from Hollywood stunt actor Mike Smith, as he speaks on his experience working on the inside. The message is clear and the film literally aims to “wake up the general public by shedding light on how we all have been lied to and brainwashed by a hidden enemy with a sinister agenda”. Some of the ideas and theories touched on throughout the film are at times hard to hear. They reference cannibalism-themed Hollywood dinners, trafficking of children in Hollywood, and child abuse as entertainment during Hollywood events.
You might at first be quick to brush some of these claims off but a lot of the points raised in the film do indeed hold weight. Recently we have seen that there’s a lot of politics involved in Hollywood today, from leaked emails between Sony Pictures’ executives and government officials to Harvey Weinstein, who was a large contributor to Hilary Clinton’s Presidential campaign and just take one look at the villains in their movies, they are nearly always portrayed to be Russians, Germans, etc. America will never be presented as the villain.
That being said however, the film very much has a go and do the research for yourself attitude which is disappointing because it takes from the valid arguments made. We the viewers are not investigative journalists and do not possess the financial or legal backing required to carry out such research. But the idea that everything is not as it seems is an idea that should be acknowledged and with over thirteen million views the film has yet to be officially “trending” on YouTube which begs the question, are they deliberately attempting to hide it?

The mere presence of a virus in an organism doesn’t tell you anything about the health of that organism.

Do you see where this is going yet?#

 If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus. there is an important alternative view of the virus.

The late primal diet/raw meat advocate Aajonus Vonderplanitz (who died in 2013) gave this fascinating interview during the swine flu hoax of 2009, when everyone was freaking out (not as much as with the coronavirus, but in a similar vein to the hyped ebola and zika outbreaks). He claimed the following:
– viruses are created by the body to clean itself when friendly bacteria can no longer break down all the waste;
– all viruses are good viruses, being necessary cellular responses;
– viruses are like a solvent or soap, made by cells to help dissolve and eliminate toxins (a solvent is something that will make the solute [the thing to be dissolved] turn into a solution [liquid]);
– viruses are specific to the cell that created them;
– viruses cannot cross species;
– viruses don’t exist outside of bodies; and
– that the only way that a virus can cross species is if it’s made in a factory and injected, i.e. extracted, kept in a lab, genetically altered and modified, weaponized, then made into vaccines and bioweapons.
Dormant viruses and latent viruses can exist in our bodies all the time without causing disease. The mere presence of a virus in an organism doesn’t tell you anything about the health of that organism. It is quite possible that due to all the toxicity in our world (junk food, GMO crops, chlorinated and fluoridated water, poisoned skies), our body has to make a solvent to help us get rid of the toxins.
Interestingly, the main points in the interview with Aajonus are also explained in this recent video by Australian Tom Barnett.

Pfizer’s_Covid_Vaccine

More than one-quarter of Americans say they probably or definitely would not take a coronavirus vaccine.

https://www.nytimes.com/live/2020/12/14/world/covid-19-coronavirus
fresh data revealed that more than one-quarter of Americans say they probably or definitely would not take a coronavirus vaccine.
That is according to a survey released on Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation, which found that Republican, rural and Black Americans are among the most hesitant to be vaccinated.
The skepticism, while not totally unanticipated, still represents a challenge as the country tries to tamp down exploding infections, hospitalizations and deaths. On the same day as the first inoculations were administered, the United States passed 300,000 deaths — more than any other country.

The country is averaging more than 2,400 deaths a day, even more than in the spring. More than twice as many deaths are being announced each day than just a month ago.
The survey was conducted between Nov. 30 and Dec. 8 among a nationally representative random sample of 1,676 adults ages 18 and older (including interviews with 298 Hispanic adults and 390 non-Hispanic Black adults).

It is the first report from a new “Covid-19 Vaccine Monitor” that the Kaiser foundation has established to deeply examine the public’s views about coronavirus vaccination, and to track experiences in getting shots. Such information will be essential for public health experts who are trying to encourage vaccination.
Over all, 71 percent of respondents said they definitely would get a vaccine, an 8 percent increase from what Kaiser found in a September survey. Roughly a third (34 percent) now want the vaccine as soon as possible.
Another 39 percent said they would wait to see how the vaccine works out for other people before getting it themselves. Nine percent would get the vaccine only if it is required for work, school or another activity. Twelve percent said they would probably not take a vaccine, and 15 percent said they would definitely not get vaccinated — even if it was free and determined to be safe by scientists.
Different groups are hesitant for different reasons, the survey found. Black Americans appear most worried about side effects, or that they could get Covid-19 from the vaccine.
Nearly one in four Republicans “don’t want to get vaccinated because they don’t believe Covid poses a serious threat,” said Mollyann Brodie, the executive vice president of the foundation.

“It will be a real challenge to undo Covid denialism among this slice of President Trump’s political base,” she added.

Four million Australians to be vaccinated for coronavirus by end of March 2021
By Lara Pearce - 6th January 2021

https://www.9news.com.au/national/coronavirus-vaccine-update-four-million-australians-by-end-march-scott-morrison/45f2fdba-66ca-4ea5-bea9-b0356c0b9e

Australia’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout will begin nearly a month early but Prime Minister Scott Morrison has warned that it does not mean an end to the precautions in place.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Australia's first coronavirus vaccinations could commence as soon as mid-February.
The prime minister held a press conference today to outline more details about the multiple vaccines currently under review by the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

He said the government aimed to have four million Australians vaccinated by the end of March, with a target to roll out 80,000 vaccinations a week by mid- to late-February.
The first round of vaccinations will be reserved for the country's most at-risk: hotel quarantine workers and others involved with returned travellers, healthcare workers, aged care and disability workers and their residents.
Health authorities have outlined a five-tier priority list for those to receive vaccination.

Children will be the last to receive the jab, due to being at low risk of serious disease as well as there being insufficient data on the effect of the vaccines in younger age groups.
The five priority tiers are as follows:
Phase 1a - up to 1.4m doses: Quarantine and border workers, frontline healthcare workers, aged care and disability care staff and residents;
Phase 1b - up to 14.8m doses: Elderly adults aged over 70, other healthcare workers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders aged over 55, younger adults with underlying medical conditions, including a disability, high-risk workers including police, fire, defence, emergency services and meat processing;
Phase 2a- up to 15.8m doses: Adults aged over 50, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders aged over 18, other critical and high-risk workers;
Phase 2b- up to 16m doses: Balance of adult population, catch up any unvaccinated Australians from previous phases;
Phase 3 - up to 13.6m doses: Children aged under 18, if recommended.

Mr Morrison said the process for approving and delivering the multiple coronavirus vaccines had been accelerated but he could not yet provide exact dates for the rollout.
"It is moving considerably faster than normal vaccination processes would occur in Australia – but without cutting corners, ensuring that everything is ticked that needs to be ticked along the way," he said.
"We believe we will be able to commence vaccinations of high-priority workers in mid- to late-February.
However, this is still pending approval by the TGA and delivery by suppliers.
The Pfizer vaccine is expected to be the first to secure TGA approval – a process which is expected to be complete by the end of January.

However, following approval it will still take approximately two weeks for vials of the vaccine to arrive in Australia and a further week for test batching to be completed.
"The vaccine is only released post-approval," Mr Morrison said, noting that delivery was a delicate operation for a vaccine that had to be stored below -70C.

Secretary of the federal Health Department, Professor Brendan Murphy, said 'Phase One' of the vaccination program would involve giving healthcare workers and other high-risk groups the Pfizer shots, which will be imported from overseas.
This vaccine is a two-step process, with a second jab needed some weeks after the first.

It's likely each person who receives the vaccine will be digitally registered, so authorities can remind and track those to receive the second dose. 
Large-scale vaccination of the general population will then follow using the AstraZeneca vaccine, which will be produced in large quantities onshore.
This will be conducted from more than 1000 'vaccine hubs' around Australia, including specialist centres but also general practitioners and Aboriginal outreach buildings.
The vaccination update comes after it was revealed a cleaner at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Brisbane tested positive to coronavirus.
The worker, who lives in Algester in Brisbane's south, developed symptoms and was tested on Wednesday.
Despite recent outbreaks in Victoria, NSW and Queensland, the prime minister praised Australia's handling of the pandemic.

"We have been dealing with this pandemic in a very Australian way - Australia has been making its own way through this," he said.
"It's a terrible tragedy that there are countries in the world today who are seeing daily death rates that are higher than Australia's death toll in the past year." 
However, he also warned that the vaccination program did not spell the end of the virus in Australia.
"Vaccinations are not a silver bullet," Mr Morrison said.  
"COVID-safe practices must continue. This will add a further, significant defence – or rather, an offence. But 2021 will still be a year of battling the virus." 

Australia and New Zealand plan to ease travel restrictions.

The New Zealand government intends to establish a travel bubble with Australia in the first quarter of next year, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Monday.
The arrangement would allow people to travel freely between Australia and New Zealand without needing to quarantine for two weeks on arrival. Passengers arriving from New Zealand are already exempt from quarantine requirements in Australia.

The travel bubble was “pending confirmation” from Australian officials, Ms. Ardern said during a news conference, and would be contingent on “no significant changes in the circumstances of either country.”
New Zealand, population about five million, has managed to avoid the worst of the pandemic, with 2,096 cases and 25 lives lost, according to a New York Times database. In Australia, which has a population of about 25.5 million, 28,031 people have tested positive for the coronavirus, while 908 have died.
The governments of New Zealand and Australia announced in May that they had reached a formal agreement to form a travel bubble as soon as it was safe to do so. But surges in new cases, most notably in Victoria, Australia, left the plans suspended.

Here’s what else to know in coronavirus news from around the world:
Officials in South Korea have ordered schools in the Seoul metropolitan area to move all classes online starting Tuesday until at least the end of the year. Additional measures may be announced this week as the country struggles to contain its worst outbreak yet. South Korea, which has a population of about 50 million, reported 718 new cases on Monday, down from a record 1,030 the day before.
Japan is also struggling with an uptick in coronavirus cases and will hit pause on a nationwide campaign to encourage travel and tourism. With hospitals under increasing pressure from a recent, steady growth in new infections, the program, called “Go To Travel,” will be halted from Dec. 28 through at least Jan. 11, covering the most important holiday of the calendar, New Year’s, when many people travel home. The program had provided substantial discounts to consumers to encourage them to support the country’s beleaguered tourism and service sectors.

Will most of us in Ireland be vaccinated by the summer, or will it drag on into autumn?
We face a difficult interim period as we wait for the slow roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine

The moment when the balance tilts and we start to feel the pandemic is fizzling out still feels frustratingly far away. The surge in case numbers and news of the more transmissible UK variant – and the reality that the vaccine rollout will take time – has upended our expectations.

We now face a really difficult interim period which is going to be longer than we had hoped for – the gap before enough people get vaccinated.When this might happen is still unclear.

But we will certainly need an acceleration in supply including – crucially – a number of new vaccines including the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine to come on-stream if we are to have really significant numbers done by the summer.
We could have large numbers done by early summer and might get to the magic 70 per cent coverage by mid- to late summer

Fortunately there is some positive news in recent days in terms of vaccine supply, and signs that the official system is now focused on accelerating the delivery of whatever does arrive.

There is a long way to go yet before we have clarity – and an interesting debate is how far we might be able to ease restrictions when the vulnerable members of society have been vaccinated, and as increasing numbers join them. We won’t be locked up one day and free the next – it will be a process.

Limited supply
Managing this is going to be tricky – from all points of view. The start has been slow, largely due to the limited supply. On an optimistic analysis, with early approval of more vaccines and quick rollout – involving GPs and pharmacies for the easier ones to handle – this will accelerate in the second quarter of the year.

We could have large numbers done by early summer and might get to the magic 70 per cent coverage by mid- to late summer. Or, if approvals are a bit slower and so is the rollout, it could slip to the autumn before we get sufficient coverage and the magic 7 million-plus jabs have been administered
There is the other side of the equation: managing the easing of restrictions.
The political noise which will build up around this will be enormous, with so much at stake for public health and also the economy. This will be difficult for the Government, given the inevitability of a slow start due to supply constraints and much quicker progress in countries such as the UK and Israel.

Giving the public clear information – including about the uncertainties of supply – will be vital. So, of course, will be getting the logistics right. For now, the constraint is supply and we are in the same boat as other EU countries.

But by the spring supply should grow significantly, and the focus will then be on delivery. And that is down to the Government and its agencies. Expect the GPs to be signed up shortly to aid delivery – it will be vital to accelerate this so that you can walk down to your GP or pharmacy to get it done. But we don’t yet know what the plan is here – and soon enough we need to.

Easing of restrictions
And then there is the other side of the equation: managing the easing of restrictions. Say that the case numbers are low enough to allow most sectors to reopen by the middle of March, with some exceptions. Will reopening then set off a fresh surge and mean we are back into another lockdown, or semi-lockdown a few weeks later, because we won’t have enough vaccinations done by then?

We have failed to find a way to live “with” the virus while keeping most of the consumer-facing part of the economy open. If new variants increase the risk of transmission – and it seems they do – then this will become even more difficult. We have a lack of data about where cases are originating, but clearly people gathering indoors in various settings ignited the Christmas surge. So, for the sake of argument, while schools, shops and construction might reopen when case numbers fall this time, are restaurants, pubs and so on destined to remain shuttered until enough people are vaccinated?

I expect that the Government will be very cautious in the reopening to come. The key point is that accelerating the delivery of the vaccine might just make this workable by bringing the end-point forward, whereas if delivery is delayed it could get really difficult, with perhaps further lockdown coming into play, or prolonged closures. One sector which will need special help is anything connected to inward tourism, set to have another bad year as right now few people will be booking overseas trips until they see how things pan out.

Remarkable resilience
The exchequer returns published during the week show that due to the remarkable resilience of the parts of the economy which have largely kept operating, tax revenues have held up. The fact that income tax receipts were just 1 per cent lower was extraordinary, given the hit to the jobs market. It is largely explained by lower-paid employees – who pay less tax – taking the brunt of the economic price. Together with the ability to borrow at zero or even negative interest rates, this means the State can continue to support the key affected sectors.
The fallout will still be enormous in economic terms. Many businesses will not make it through. Unemployment in December, including those on the Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP), was 20 per cent. This overstates the real position as some on PUP will go back to work. But many now will not. The economic legacy will be an unemployment crisis, particularly amongst younger people.

Getting the vaccines out quickly will limit the damage and mean that recovery can start later this year. And huge savings in people’s bank accounts can start to be spent, which will really help. In the meantime a really difficult balancing act awaits when we emerge from the current crisis phase.

Health care and frontline workers are REFUSING the new Covid vaccines as public remains wary of new virus jab
Joseph Gamp - 2 Jan 2021, 20:58


A LARGE number of health care professionals and frontline staff are refusing to take the coronavirus vaccine, according to a new survey.

Staff first in line to receive the Moderna-produced Covid-19 shot are either hesitant to take, or outright refuse, the jab - despite fears January will see a sharp "post-seasonal" rise in cases of the virus.[AKaiser Family Foundation report found 29% of healthcare workers were hesitant to receive the vaccine]

A new report by Kaiser Family Foundation found 29% of healthcare workers were hesitant to receive the vaccine.

The research suggests the lack of vaccinations is due to recipients' concerns of potential side effects and a lack of faith in the government to ensure the vaccines were safe,

Earlier this week, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said he was "troubled" by the relatively low numbers of nursing home workers who have elected to take the vaccine - revealing nearlyr 60% of nursing home staff declined the shot.

Roughly 55 percent of surveyed New York Fire Department firefighters said they would not get the coronavirus vaccine, the Firefighters Association president said last month.

The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that hospital and public officials in Riverside said an estimated 50% of frontline workers in the county refused the vaccine.

Dr. Nikhila Juvvadi, the chief clinical officer at Chicago's Loretto Hospital, said that a survey was administered in December that showed around 40 percent of the hospital staff said they would not get vaccinated.

Dr. Juvvadi told NPR that "there's no transparency between pharmaceutical companies or research companies — or the government sometimes — on how many people from" Black and Latino communities were involved in the research of the vaccine.

It comes after a separate study published in The Lancet over the summer found "healthcare workers of color were more than twice as likely as their white counterparts" to test positive for the coronavirus.[There are concerns related to potential side effects and a lack of faith in the safety of the, new research suggests]

And a a Pew Research Center poll published in December, vaccine skepticism is highest among Black America.

Less than 42 percent surveyed in the poll said they would definitely, or probably, accept the Covid-19 vaccine.

Last month, Government officials said they planned to have 40 million doses available by the end of 2020 - which is enough to fully vaccinate 20 million Americans with the two doses required in the course of treatment.

But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says less than 3 million Americans have received the first dose of the vaccine, and 14 million doses in distribution.
The new year is off to a grim start in the United States with more than 2,000 Americans dying from coronavirus yesterday.

For the 31st day in a row, more than 100,000 patients were hospitalized nationwide on the first day of 2021.
At least 125,057 patients are battling Covid - the third day hospitalizations exceeded 125,000 - according to the COVID tracking project.

Things could become even more deadly with the discovery of a new "super Covid" strain from the UK in the Golden State.

Are Cotton Swab PCR Tests Secretly Injecting Vaccines to Combat “Vaccine Hesitancy”?

12/05/2020 by EraOfLight 

truth must be told eraoflightdotcom

 Concern is growing that an innovative nanotech device developed at Johns Hopkins University may be used to secretly deliver the COVID19 vaccine to those people who are “vaccine hesitant.” Certainly, the technology is real, but is their any merit to such a claim?

Patrick Smith (November 25, 2020) writing for hub.jhu.edu explains:


“Inspired by a parasitic worm that digs its sharp teeth into its host’s intestines, Johns Hopkins researchers have designed tiny, star-shaped microdevices that can latch onto intestinal mucosa and release drugs into the body. David Gracias, a professor in the Whiting School of Engineering, and gastroenterologist Florin M. Selaru, director of the Johns Hopkins Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center, led a team of researchers and biomedical engineers that designed and tested shape-changing microdevices that mimic the way the parasitic hookworm affixes itself to an organism’s intestines.”

Called “theragrippers” these tiny devices are made of metal and a thin, shape-changing film. They are coated in heat-sensitive paraffin wax and each is no bigger than a speck of dust (see image below).

Even the inventors of this microtechnology admit it can potentially transport any drug and release it gradually into your body and you won’t even know anything about it.

Check Out The Video Raising The Alarm On Bitchute:
A Dodge to Defeat Vaccine Hesitation?
What reason would there be to engage in mass deception to secretly deliver a vaccine to defeat the coronavirus pandemic?
Surveys have been revealing a marked drop in public confidence that vaccines are really worth the risk.


In 2019, the World Health Organization listed vaccine hesitancy as a top ten threat to global health. Only half of surveyed American adults would receive a coronavirus vaccine if it were available today.  That number is down precipitously from over 70 percent since May 2020.
But The Real Concern For Policymakers And The Vaccine Lobby Is That There Is A Huge Surge In The Medical Professions AGAINST Vaccines With 

Just 40 Percent Of Health Care Workers Saying They Were Likely To Get Vaccinated.
But all such reluctance against the COVID jab will be in vain if a vaccine can be delivered by stealth merely when anyone takes the now ubiquitous PCR swab test (photo, top). The claim is that the dust-sized “theragrippers” can be implanted in the tips of PCR test swabs and be delivered to the innocent ‘”victim.”
It may be utterly immoral – and likely illegal – but it is certainly feasible because the Hopkins team published results of an animal study this week as the cover article in the journal Science Advances.

Thousands of these sinister miniature theragrippers can be deployed in the GI tract via a simple, innocent swab given as part of the COVID19 test already taken by millions worldwide. Quite simply, you wouldn’t feel a thing!

“When the paraffin wax coating on the grippers reaches the temperature inside the body, the devices close autonomously and clamp onto the colonic wall. The closing action causes the tiny, six-pointed devices to dig into the mucosa and remain attached to the colon, where they are retained and release their medicine payloads gradually into the body. Eventually, the theragrippers lose their hold on the tissue and are cleared from the intestine via normal gastrointestinal muscular function.”

Absent any evidence to the contrary, are we to believe we have nothing to fear from being ‘poisoned’ by the tiny critters?

Vaccine Hesitancy On the Rise!

All we can do at this point is to maintain our guard and demand answers from policymakers as to when, and if, this frightening medical breakthrough will be deployed against an increasingly vaccine hesitant public.

We know the political class is already compromised on the issue, with so many high profile politicians having financial shares in vaccine companies. For example, only last year a top FDA medical adviser declared: ‘Congress is owned by pharma. ‘

President Donald Trump took a shot at the influence of drug companies over Congress by lamenting:

“They Contribute Massive Amounts Of Money To Political People.”

Last September, for example, the UK government published ‘Vaccine Hesitancy: Guidance and Interventions.’

The above document, in the section Lessons Learned (page, 3 para. 2)  reveals how policymakers intend to get refusers to submit to their diktats:

“Lessons learned: A unidirectional (top down) approach to communication is successful
among some individuals and groups, but not all; success is dependent on the nature and
degree of hesitancy (Jarrett et al., 2015). Familiarity and trust with the messenger is a
key feature in tackling hesitancy (WHO SAGE, 2014a; Nayar et al., 2019). Vaccine
hesitancy and political populism are driven by similar dynamics: a profound distrust in
elites and experts (Kennedy, 2019). Many experts believe that it is best to counter
hesitancy at the population level (Kumar et al., 2016). Lessons learned have been
compiled in the Catalogue of interventions addressing vaccine hesitancy technical report
(ECDC, 2017). Some countries have turned to mandatory vaccination programmes
(USA, France – albeit temporarily) – however experimental evidence shows that making
one vaccine mandatory might reduce people’s uptake of others (Omer et al., 2019).
Other approaches include penalties for non-compliance (Germany, Italy), or making
vaccination a requirement for enrolment in childcare and school, which can help to
increase rates (USA, Australia). Although popular, the effectiveness of promoting
alternative vaccination schedules to decrease hesitancy has not been studied
conclusively enough (National Research Council, 2013; Feemster, 2016).”

Meanwhile, in the United States the prominent White House Coronavirus task force front man, Dr Anthony Fauci has already expressed dismay at growing public disquiet on vaccine safety.

Fauci said it won’t be easy getting large numbers of people vaccinated because of suspicion and “vaccine hesitancy,” especially among minority communities.

A recent Gallup Poll showed 48% of people of color in the U.S. said they’d take a coronavirus vaccine, compared to 61% of White respondents. Overall, about 58% of American poll respondents said they’d take a vaccine.

We know for a fact pharmaceutical companies spend far more than any other industry to influence politicians. The UK’s The Guardian reported (October 19, 2017) that:

“Drugmakers Have Poured Close To $2.5bn Into Lobbying And Funding Members Of Congress Over The Past Decade.”

Covid vaccine: How will the UK jab millions of people?

The UK has launched its biggest mass-vaccination programme, aimed at protecting tens of millions of people from Covid-19 within months.
In a race against a faster-spreading variant of coronavirus, ministers have pinned their hopes of ending a third national lockdown on protecting the most vulnerable groups by spring.

But there are huge challenges, not least the unprecedented scale but also the need for rigorous safety checks and deep-freeze storage as well as establishing enough vaccination centres and recruiting enough vaccinators.

What is the plan?

The government aims to offer vaccines to 15 million people - the over-70s, healthcare workers and those required to shield - by mid-February and millions more by spring.

The speedy rollout of the vaccine to vulnerable people is seen as critical to reducing the pandemic's death toll and relieving pressure on the NHS.
But to meet this target, ministers need to deliver more than two million jabs a week by the end of January, in one of the largest civilian logistical operations launched in Britain.
Since the beginning of last month, 1.5 million people have been vaccinated, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said. But more than 13 million people will need to receive jabs in the next five weeks. And the UK's chief medical adviser, Prof Chris Whitty, has described such a timetable as "realistic but not easy".

The NHS began administering a vaccine made by Pfizer-BioNTech.
But the operation is being significantly ramped up following the approval of a second vaccine, from Oxford University and AstraZeneca.

A third vaccine from Moderna was approved on Friday.
And the campaign to reach as many people as possible as quickly as possible has also been boosted by a shift in policy - to prioritise the first dose of either vaccine, with a second dose up to 12 weeks later, a bigger gap than originally planned.

On Thursday, Mr Johnson said it would require an "unprecedented national effort" but the government was throwing "everything at it" to deliver "hundreds of thousands" of jabs each day.

Covid vaccine: When will you be eligible?
Where are the vaccines coming from?

The UK is currently receiving doses of two vaccines approved by the medicine regulator. The Pfizer-BioNTech jab - the first given the green light - is being imported from Puurs, Belgium. Meanwhile, the Oxford vaccine is being made in Britain, by two biotech companies:

Oxford BioMedica, based in Oxford
Cobra Biologics, based at Keele Science Park, Staffs
Another company, Wockhardt, based in Wrexham, fills the vials and packages them for use

But the country's initial doses of the Oxford vaccine will actually come from Europe , UK Vaccine Taskforce manufacturing lead Ian McCubbin has said.
Supplies of the third vaccine to be approved, made by US company Moderna, are not expected to be available until spring.

Is there a hold-up?

There are a number of challenges in what is called the vaccine "supply chain" - the logistics of how the jab gets from manufacturers to people.
One challenge facing pharmaceutical companies globally has been a shortage of glass vials for the "fill and finish" stage of manufacture - when a vaccine is packaged for despatch. Although, unlike elsewhere, the UK is thought currently to have enough of this glassware in storage.

On top of this, Mr Johnson has referred to the "rate-limiting factor" of batch testing - the process of ensuring vaccines released by manufacturers are safe and up to standard.
The UK's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA) requires vaccines to be checked by the National Institute of Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC) to ensure they are:
effective
structurally intact
free of contaminants

And this process can take a long time as it has to be done twice - before the vaccine enters vials and after.
Testing a batch is sterile takes two weeks.
An MHRA spokesman said it was working closely with AstraZeneca "to ensure that batches of the vaccine are released as quickly as possible". And the NIBSC had scaled up its capacity so "multiple batches can be tested simultaneously". More technical staff are also being taken on.

The UK's Vaccines Manufacturing and Innovation Centre chief executive Matthew Duchars says preparing enough vaccine is "quite a challenge" given the timeframe but "doable".
"It's not like we haven't done this before," he says. "But we've not done it so quickly before."

How is the vaccine transported?
The Oxford vaccine can be stored in fridges and transported in regular refrigerated vans or cool boxes. But the Pfizer jab - made from genetic material - needs to be stored at -70C to prevent it from degrading.
This means it needs to be transported in a carefully controlled deep-freeze delivery chain, with vials placed inside special ultra-cold thermal boxes, known as "shippers".
These boxes - fitted with temperature-monitoring devices - are taken by plane or lorry to the UK and onward to their destination. Once at a vaccination site, the consignment needs to be removed from cold storage by specially trained NHS staff and takes a few hours to defrost before being diluted in saline and given to patients.
The newly-approved Moderna jab requires temperatures of around -20C for shipping - similar to a normal freezer.


How will people be vaccinated?
People will be vaccinated in three main ways, at:
local GP practices and community pharmacies
hospital hubs
mass vaccination sites across the country

About 1,000 GP sites, 200 community pharmacies, 223 hospital hubs and seven mass vaccination sites should be up and running by next week. And the prime minister says no-one should have to travel more than 10 miles for a jab.

The first seven mass vaccination centres are:
Robertson House, in Stevenage, Herts
the ExCel Centre, in London
the Centre for Life, in Newcastle
the Etihad tennis centre, in Manchester
Epsom Downs Racecourse, in Surrey
Ashton Gate Stadium, in Bristol
Millennium Point, in Birmingham

In Scotland, as well as GPs surgeries and hospital hubs, Motherwell Concert Hall and The Event Complex Aberdeen are being considered alongside sports venues.
So far, 80,000 people have been trained to deliver the vaccines, NHS boss Sir Simon Stevens says, with thousands more set to join the effort. The charity St John Ambulance Brigade is among those helping out.
And a further 21 quick-reaction vaccination teams will also be ready to deployed anywhere around the country, commander of military support to the vaccine delivery programme Brig Phil Prosser says.

Who will be vaccinated?
While the NHS administers about 15 million flu vaccines across the UK every year, with all four nations achieving some of the highest vaccination rates among the over-65s in Europe, the scale and speed of the Covid jab rollout is unprecedented.
The aim is to inoculate as many people as possible aged over 16 in the UK. The most vulnerable take priority, as set out in a list of nine high-priority groups, covering about a quarter of the UK population. They are thought to represent 90-99% of those at risk of dying from Covid-19.

People aged over 80, front-line health staff and care home workers have been some of the first to receive the Pfizer jab.
GPs and local vaccination centres have been asked to ensure every care-home resident in their area is vaccinated by the end of January.
Together, care home residents, their carers and the over-80s make up an estimated 4.5 million people, while front-line NHS staff make up a further 1.6 million.

Is there enough vaccine?
The UK has ordered 100 million doses of the Oxford vaccine - enough to inoculate 50 million people.
This, when combined with the 40 million ordered Pfizer jabs, will cover the entire population, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said.
The UK also has significant orders of the newly-approved Moderna vaccine and four other candidates.

But having vaccines on order is not the same as having them ready to go. Of the 100 million Oxford jabs ordered, only 530,000 were ready for nationwide rollout on 4 January. Although, the government has said this number will rise to "tens of millions" by the end of March.
Meanwhile, the UK has taken delivery of 22 consignments of the 40 million Pfizer jabs ordered.

And Pfizer says the number it has sent to the UK is now "in the millions".

James Hildreth MD from Johns Hopkins University declared:
“The virus is fully an exosome in every sense of the word.”

Dr. Brownstein: There Is Hope Out There: Another recovered COVID patient.
Everyone Matters - 20 April 2020 · 

When Christopher thought he has Covid -19 with a high fever, couching, hewas told there is no theropy -just to go home and isolate .....
Christopher was told do what you can to self medicate and do not come into he hospital or the doctor ..... only if you get very sick with trouble breathing
A Canadian doctor who is a leader in orthomolecular medicine recommended I look into the work being done by Dr. David Brownstein and his team in Michigan, whose patients have all survived COVID-19 with holistic therapies. I found it very persuasive, and when I came down with an extended flu that lasted a month, self-administered the protocol of high-dose vitamin C, D and A.
I am not a doctor so would not endorse any protocol - but I wanted to share this with anyone who is concerned, scared and wondering what they can do, on their own.
Here's a video with Dr. Brownstein and one of his patients, recorded a few days ago, and reposted with his permission.
Here is the link to Dr. Brownstein's blog, which features information, and additional videos with both clients and the team of doctors.

Piezoelectrical Repair Crews
This video which highlights aspects of the fake coronavirus pandemic also talks of viruses as entities created by the body that do not do any harm and are designed to carry waste. The video creator refers to viruses as a “piezoelectrical repair crew”, with a polysaccharide coating on their heads, who can travel to a damaged cell and facilitate glycolysis (the conversion of sugar into energy). In other words, they go to a cell needing a repair and give it energy (sugar) and electricity (a kind of jump start). According to this viewpoint, blaming a virus for damage is like blaming an innocent helper at the scene of the crime; just because someone saw a crime and came to help does not mean they caused the crime. The situation is similar to the demonization of cholesterol which I have discussed elsewhere; it turns out that cholesterol is an essential nutrient and at the scene of bodily damage to repair it, not because it caused it. By the way, around 8 years ago Berkeley scientists turned harmless viruses into piezoelectric generators.- Please take the time to read this full aricles further down this webpage

Covid UK news LIVE - Government considering tougher lockdown restrictions as coronavirus cases hit record high (the-sun.com)

THE coronavirus lockdown has been EXTENDED by another three weeks in Wales.

Schools will also almost certainly stay shut until at least February half term First Minister Mark Drakeford warned, adding that the pandemic had reached a ‘significant point’.
He suggested that the only way to avoid schools remaining closed and online learning continuing was a sudden unlikely fall in covid infections in the area before the next tier review on January 29th.
Extending the lockdown Mr Drakeford said: ‘The coronavirus pandemic has reached a significant point. Cases in Wales remain very high and our NHS is under real and sustained pressure. The alert Level 4 restrictions we introduced before Christmas must remain in place to keep us all safe."
The news came after 1,162 new fatalities and 52,618 infections were recorded in England and Wales between Wednesday and Thursday.
Meanwhile the NHS last night revealed it is currently operating at 50% higher patient capacity than it was during the peak of the first wave of coronavirus last summer.

TREAT CORONAVIRUS INFECTION IN WORKPLACE AS INDUSTRIAL INJURY, LABOUR MSP URGES
Contracting coronavirus while at work should be treated as an industrial injury, a Scottish Labour MSP has said.
Mark Griffin wants to reform employment protections in response to the pandemic.
The Central Scotland MSP is proposing a Member's Bill calling for Covid-19 infections in the workplace to be classed as an industrial illness, and he cited 1,345 employers' reports to the Health and Safety Executive of staff contracting the virus as of December 12.
However, both Scotland's chief medical officer and national clinical director have repeatedly stressed the extreme difficulty of identifying how and where a person contracted the virus.
Mr Griffin's proposals would also see the creation of a Scottish employment injuries advisory council and measures to tackle the gender gap of people seeking support.

BRAZILIAN COMPANY TO START MAKING RUSSIAN VACCINE FROM NEXT WEEK
Brazilian pharmaceutical company Uniao Quimica plans to start producing Russia's Sputnik V vaccine for COVID-19 in Brazil as soon as next week and build up to 8 million doses a month, its international business director Rogerio Rosso said on Friday.
The private company, with a vaccine facility in Brasilia, is preparing to request emergency use authorisation from health regulator Anvisa for the vaccine developed in Moscow.

Some health officials have turned to Eventbrite to schedule vaccinations.
https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/01/08/world/covid-19-coronavirus

People wait in line for the Covid-19 vaccine in Miami on Wednesday.
Before the pandemic, the online ticketing platform Eventbrite was a place to find tickets to performances, art shows or pub crawls. Now, public health officials are using the website to set up coronavirus vaccination appointments.
Eventbrite has been used in several counties in Florida, Vice reported, and mentions of Eventbrite vaccination tickets have popped up in other places, too — like the websites for Sevier County, Tenn., and the city of Allen, Texas. Even health care providers in Britain have been using the platform to schedule shots.
Mai Miller, 48, of Merritt Island, Fla., scoured the website last week in search of a vaccination appointment for her 68-year-old mother. “It was just a scramble,” she said. “Like musical chairs with 20 chairs and 4,000 people.”
The use of the platform has also raised concerns about accessibility: Not everyone has internet access or knows how to work Evenbrite. And in Florida, scams have already been reported. Eventbrite has been used to charge money for vaccination slots that turned out to be bogus.
These glitches are, of course, part of a larger problem: Coronavirus vaccine distribution in the United States and elsewhere is an unprecedented project with vast operational challenges.
“It’s stressful for my people,” said Greg Foster, the director of emergency management for Nassau County, Fla. Officials there used Eventbrite, he said, because the county’s own websites did not have the bandwidth to handle the demand — to say nothing of the limited supply of vaccines.

Israel's Covid vaccine rollout is the fastest in the world — here are some lessons for the rest of us

KEY POINTS
While the U.S. and Europe attempt to ramp up their own Covid vaccination drives, Israel is outpacing them all.
Israel's vaccination drive began on Dec. 19, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the first person to be vaccinated in the country.
Priority has been given to people aged over 60, health care workers and anyone clinically vulnerable — reported to make up around a quarter of its 9 million population.
LONDON — While the U.S., U.K. and Europe attempt to ramp up their own Covid vaccination drives, one country is outpacing them all: Israel.
Israel's vaccination drive began on Dec. 19 with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the first person to be vaccinated in the country. Priority has been given to people aged over 60, health care workers and anyone clinically vulnerable.
It has raced ahead of other countries that have also started their vaccination rollouts. To date, and with a new lockdown in place amid a surge in coronavirus cases, around 1.59 million people in Israel (of a population of 8.6 million) have received their first vaccine shot, according to Our World in Data.
By contrast, the U.S. has given the first inoculation to 5.9 million people (with a population of around 331 million), the U.K. has vaccinated 1.3 million (of 66 million) and just 45,000 people in France have received their first shot (population: 67 million).

In Israel, around 60% of the priority groups for the vaccine have now been immunized, despite some of them being hard to reach, such as those confined to their homes, according to Dr. Boaz Lev, who chairs the advisory committee for epidemic control and coronavirus vaccines at Israel's Ministry of Health. The country is vaccinating around 150,000 people per day, he added, and aims to have vaccinated the majority of the country by April.
"The core aim of our vaccination program is to vaccinate as many people as we can, as quickly as we can," Lev said.

Lessons for the rest of the world
From logistics to public information campaigns, there are a number of lessons that other countries could learn as they try to ramp up their own vaccination drives.
"First of all … plan in advance. Be prepared, have a big informational campaign and get the trust of the people, that's on one side," Lev told CNBC Wednesday.
"Then, create a good flow of vaccines, a good flow of people … with a good administrative background so that you can register them and they know when to come for their next jab. So there's a variety of things involving planning ahead basically, and having it rolled out so it flows."

People queue outside a Covid-19 mass vaccination center at Rabin Sqaure in this aerial photograph taken in Tel Aviv, Israel, on Monday, Jan. 4, 2020. Israel plans to vaccinate 70% to 80% of its population by April or May, Health Minister Yuli Edelstein has said.


Israeli officials have been tight-lipped about how many vaccinations the country has ordered, but vaccine makers reported that it has secured 8 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and 6 million doses of the Moderna vaccine (the first batch of which was due to arrive Thursday). It has not been revealed how much of the University of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine the country has ordered.

All of these vaccines require everyone to have two doses; there are reports that Israel paid higher vaccine prices as it vied to get supplies ahead of larger countries.
Lev said Israel's ambitious goal to vaccinate the majority of its population via its public hospitals and vaccination centers requires elaborate planning. "We need to have the logistics set up to do that and that takes a tremendous effort," he said.

"The next thing is to have the right order in vaccinating the people. As long as we don't have an abundance of vaccines ... we need to have a very orderly queue so we know who gets vaccinated and this should be according to some principles," he added. "It should be safe, it should be flexible, it should be simple as it can be, but it should also follow principles that those who are more vulnerable should get it first ... in order to mitigate the mortality and morbidity (of the pandemic)."

Logistics and distribution
Public health experts told CNBC there were a number of factors that had allowed Israel to vaccinate so efficiently, including its small population and geography, and the efficiency of its health care system.
Israel has a public health care system which requires everyone to belong to one of four health care maintenance organizations (or HMOs) that operate a bit like Britain's National Health Service. Vaccine supplies were distributed to these HMOs who in turn have deployed them to their respective members.
Ronit Calderon-Margalit, professor of epidemiology at the Hadassah-Hebrew University Braun School of Public Health, told CNBC Wednesday that the vaccination drive had exceeded her expectations. "It's amazing, it is going well beyond my wildest dreams, and it's not often I can say that," she said.
People receive a dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine inside a Covid-19 mass vaccination center at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv, Israel, on Monday, Jan. 4, 2020.
She attributed part of that success to the efficiency of the four HMOs: Clalit, Maccabi, Meuhedet and Leumit, or "Kupot Cholim" as they're collectively known.
"They all have vaccines from the government, to vaccinate the population, and they're very good with the logistics of distribution of services, of the vaccines," she said. Experts told CNBC that hospitals and clinics were also giving people outside of the priority groups the vaccines at the end of the day in order not to waste supplies.
Israel's health care system is highly digitized, so everyone receiving the vaccine is registered as having done so by the health ministry.
Israel has recorded 466,916 cases of the virus and 3,527 deaths, as of Thursday, according to data from the Johns Hopkins University. Like other countries, it has seen a winter surge of infections.
On Wednesday, Netanyahu blamed a new, more-transmissible strain of the virus first identified in Britain (what he called the "British mutation") for a spike in cases in the country. Israel is entering a new strict lockdown at midnight on Thursday for two weeks due to the infection surge
As well as vaccination centers and clinics, hospitals are of course at the front line of distribution.
Yoel Har-Even is the director of international division and resource development at the Sheba Medical Center, the largest hospital in the Middle East (and incidentally, where Netanyahu was vaccinated in December).
He told CNBC on Wednesday that his hospital had vaccinated around 45,000 people over the last two weeks.
These people range from those most at-risk, including police officers and Holocaust survivors, an experience Har-Even said was very moving, to teachers. He said everyone he had met was happy to receive the vaccine (anti-vaccine sentiment is low in Israel), with mainstream media of all political leanings supporting the vaccination drive.
"We understand it's a crucial time and everyone right here is united," Har-Even said. "It reminds us a little bit of a time of war in Israel, and when there is war, there is unity."
He added that the acceptance and the willingness of people to receive the vaccine was a cause of great pride.

"You just have to see the lines and the queues of people who are standing silent, there's no pushing and no yelling," he said. "The time of corona means (the vaccination drive) is happening faster, quieter, and with much, much more order and efficiency in the process."

Civility in civic discourse and integrity are increasingly quaint notions.

Pfizer and BioNTech announced on Friday that their vaccine is effective against one of the mutations present in the new contagious variants identified in Britain and South Africa.
The study was posted online Thursday night on the web site Biorxiv. It has not yet gone through formal scientific review.
Independent experts said the findings are good news, but cautioned that each of the variants has several other potentially dangerous mutations that have not yet been investigated. So it’s possible that one of those mutations affects how well the vaccine works.

“It’s the first step in the right direction,” said Dr. John Brooks, the chief medical officer for the Centers for Disease Control Covid-19 emergency response. “I’m hoping that the additional work that comes out in the future will fall in line with that finding.”
The new variant, known as B.1.1.7, first raised concern in December, when British researchers realized that it was rapidly becoming more common among people with Covid-19. Since then, it has turned up in 45 countries.
Subsequent research has confirmed that it has the capacity to spread more easily from person to person. On Friday, Public Health England released a new study of B.1.1.7 in which researchers estimated that the variant is 30 to 50 percent more transmissible than other forms of the virus.

The viral lineage leading to B.1.1.7 has accumulated 23 mutations. Of particular concern to scientists are eight mutations that affect the gene for a protein called spike on the surface of coronaviruses. That’s because the viruses use the spike protein to grab onto human cells. It’s possible that one or more of them help B.1.1.7 invade cells more successfully.
One of these mutations, known as N501Y, is particularly worrisome. Experiments have demonstrated that it enables the virus to bind to cells more tightly. And it has also arisen in other lineages of the coronavirus, including a variant identified in South Africa in December. That variant, called B.1.351, rapidly spread through the country, and has spread to a dozen other countries so far.
Researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch ran an experiment to see if the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine worked against viruses with the N501Y mutation. They found that in cells in the lab, the mutant virus could not infect human cells mixed with antibodies from vaccinated people. The antibodies latched onto the coronaviruses and blocked them from grabbing into cells. Despite the N501Y mutation, the experiment showed, the vaccine-generated antibodies were still able to latch onto the viruses.
“This indicates that the key N501Y mutation, which is found in the emerging U.K and South Africa variants, does not create resistance to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine induced immune responses,” the companies said in a press release.

Once the Ruling Elite that own the Big Pharma Drug Companies  and fund all the medical and health experts, and researchers have convinced 60-70% of the world's population to willing accept the two Covid19 Vaccine Jabs, and in doing so made billions in profits by selling 10 plus million Covid19 Vaccine Jabs to all the governments around the world, will they then put pressure of the all the government heads they have put in place around the world. to make it mandatory for the rest of the 30-40% of the world's population to have the Covid19 Vaccination injected straight into their blood stream, thus bypassing the body's Natural Immune System? Or will the Ruling Elite, that are determined to have every person on earth that is not one of their inner circle, injected with their Covid19 Vaccine Jab, use the 60-70% of the people that have willingly accepted the Covid19 Vaccine Jab, as a type of Bee Hive Mentality to turn the others that have initially refused to accept Covid19 Vaccination Jab into social outcasts, and also make it virtually impossible to function in the new normal society unless one has a vaccine pass port than can be scanned in one's arm?

A Dodge to Defeat Vaccine Hesitation?

What reason would there be to engage in mass deception to secretly deliver a vaccine to defeat the coronavirus pandemic?
Surveys have been revealing a marked drop in public confidence that vaccines are really worth the risk.

In 2019, the World Health Organization listed vaccine hesitancy as a top ten threat to global health. 

Only half of surveyed American adults would receive a coronavirus vaccine if it were available today.  That number is down precipitously from over 70 percent since May 2020.
But The Real Concern For Policymakers And The Vaccine Lobby Is That There Is A Huge Surge In The Medical Professions AGAINST Vaccines With 
Just 40 Percent Of Health Care Workers Saying They Were Likely To Get Vaccinated.

But all such reluctance against the COVID jab will be in vain if a vaccine can be delivered by stealth merely when anyone takes the now ubiquitous PCR swab test.

The claim is that the dust-sized “theragrippers” can be implanted in the tips of PCR test swabs and be delivered to the innocent ‘”victim.”
It may be utterly immoral – and likely illegal – but it is certainly feasible because the Hopkins team published results of an animal study this week as the cover article in the journal Science Advances.

The first shots were given in the American mass vaccination campaign on Monday, opening a new chapter in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more people in the United States — over 300,000 — than in any other country and has taken a particularly devastating toll on people of color.

Shortly after 9 a.m., the new Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was administered in Queens, the first known inoculation since the vaccine was authorized by the Food and Drug Administration late last week. It was a hopeful step for New York State, which the virus has scarred profoundly, leaving more than 35,000 people dead and severely weakening the economy.
“I believe this is the weapon that will end the war,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Monday morning, shortly before the shot was given to Sandra Lindsay, a nurse and the director of patient services in the intensive care unit at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. State officials said the shot was the first to be given outside of a vaccine trial in the United States.

Ms. Lindsay, who has treated patients throughout the pandemic, said that she hoped her public vaccination would instill confidence that the shots were safe.
“I have seen the alternative, and do not want it for you,” she said. “I feel like healing is coming. I hope this marks the beginning of the end of a very painful time in our history.”
President Trump posted on Twitter: “First Vaccine Administered. Congratulations USA! Congratulations WORLD!”
Shortly afterward, Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City said at a news conference: “To me, we were watching an incredibly historic moment, and the beginning of something much better for this city and this country.”
While the first dose of the vaccine was administered in New York, people across the nation began receiving it on Monday as well. There was plenty of applause and some tears as news cameras captured the mundane rituals of an injection, underscoring the pent-up hope that this was the first step in getting past the pandemic.
“Today is the first day on the long road to go back to normal,” Mona Moghareh, a 30-year-old pharmacist, said after administering the first dose at a hospital in New Orleans.
But the joy was tempered by the harsh reality of the devastation the virus continues to inflict. The United States surpassed 300,000 virus-related deaths on Monday, reporting at least 1,670 new ones, along with at least 201,000 new cases.
The vaccinations started after the F.D.A.’s emergency authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Friday night. On Sunday, trucks and cargo planes packed with the first of nearly three million doses of coronavirus vaccine had fanned out across the country, as hospitals in all 50 states rushed to set up injection sites and their anxious workers tracked each shipment hour by hour. But the rollout is less centralized in the United States than in other countries that are racing to distribute it.
According to Gen. Gustave F. Perna, the chief operating officer of the federal effort to develop a vaccine, 145 sites were set to receive the vaccine on Monday, 425 on Tuesday and 66 on Wednesday.
A majority of the first injections given on Monday are expected to go to high-risk health care workers. In many cases, this first, limited delivery would not supply nearly enough doses to inoculate all of the doctors, nurses, security guards, receptionists and other workers who risk being exposed to the virus every day. Because the vaccines can cause side effects including fevers and aches, hospitals say they will stagger vaccination schedules among workers.

Ms. Lindsay emphasized the symbolic importance that she was the first American to receive the vaccine — as a Black woman, she is among the demographic most disproportionately devastated by Covid-19. African-Americans also have long been subjected to unethical medical research, raising some concern that they may be more hesitant to take the vaccine.
“I want people who look like me and are associated with me to know it’s safe,” she said. “Use me as an example. I would not steer the public wrong.”
Residents of nursing homes, who have suffered a disproportionate share of Covid-19 deaths, are also being prioritized and are expected to begin receiving vaccinations next week. But the vast majority of Americans will not be eligible for the vaccine until the spring or later.

VACCINATION CAMPAIGN

The number of people with the virus who died in the U.S. passes 300,000.

The number of people with the coronavirus in the United States who have died passed 300,000 on Monday, another wrenching record that comes less than four weeks after the nation’s virus deaths reached a quarter-million.

Covid-19 surpassed heart disease as the leading cause of death in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Robert Redfield said in public remarks last week, referring to a breakdown of deaths for a week in early December. Almost the same number of Americans are being lost to the disease each day as were killed in the Sept. 11 terror attacks or the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The surge in deaths reflects how much faster Americans have spread the virus to one another since late September, when the number of cases identified daily had fallen to below 40,000. A range of factors — including financial pressure to return to workplaces, the politicization of mask-wearing and a collective surrender to the desire for social contact — has since driven new cases to more than 200,000 per day. Preventable deaths on a staggering scale, many experts said, were sure to follow.
“There’s no need for that many to have died,” said David Hayes-Bautista, a professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. “We chose, as a country, to take our foot off the gas pedal. We chose to, and that’s the tragedy.’’
Three hundred thousand is more than the number of Americans who died fighting in World War II. It is roughly half the number of total cancer deaths expected this year. It is the population of Pittsburgh.

But the worst is yet to come.

The first 100,000 U.S. deaths were confirmed by May 27; it then took four months for the nation to log another 100,000 deaths. The latest 100,000 deaths occurred over a span of about three months. The next 100,000 Americans to die, many public health experts believe, may do so in closer to one month.
“I am floored at how much worse it is than what I expected,” said Ashish Jha, the dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health.

The Food and Drug Administration’s approval of a highly effective vaccine last week offers a new tool to slow — or even stop — the virus’s onslaught if it becomes widely distributed early next year. But “the people who are going to die in late December and early January will already have been infected by then,” Dr. Jha said. “It’s going to be very hard to avoid hitting 400,000 within a month after hitting 300,000.”


The proportion of Americans who die roughly 22 days after being diagnosed with the coronavirus has remained at about 1.7 percent since May, Trevor Bedford, a genomic epidemiologist at the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center in Seattle, noted recently on Twitter. As a result, about three weeks worth of future deaths are “essentially ‘baked into’ currently reported cases,” Dr. Bedford wrote.

Since the number of reported cases has approached an average of 200,000 per day over the last 22 days, an average of more than 3,000 deaths are likely to occur daily for the next 22, according to Dr. Bedford’s back-of-the-envelope calculation.

Many of the 300,000 who died from Covid-19 had an underlying health condition, like diabetes, hypertension or obesity. A large fraction were residents of long-term care facilities. About a third were over the age of 85.
But it is wrong to conclude that these were deaths that would have happened anyway, epidemiologists said. Nationwide, deaths have been almost 20 percent higher than normal since mid-March, when the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.

Roughly 60,000 of the 300,000 were under the age of 65. A disproportionate number were Black, Latino and Native American — with the highest disparities at younger ages: Black Americans from ages 30 to 49 died at nearly six times the rate of white people in the same age group, while Hispanic people died at nearly seven times the rate of white people in the same age group, according to an analysis by Philip Cohen, a University of Maryland sociologist.

Will the coronavirus death toll exceed 400,000? Much will depend on whether a majority of Americans chooses to take the vaccine, experts said. Nicholas Reich, a biostatistician at the University of Massachusetts who has been assembling statistical projections of Covid-19 deaths from researchers around the country, said many of the models have performed poorly during the recent climb in cases, in part because human behavior was so variable.

“Actions taken collectively can really change the course of what is happening,” Dr. Reich said. “One reason this is hard to predict is to some extent the power is in our hands.”

A new survey finds that about a quarter of Americans don’t want to get vaccinated.

As the United States begins the most ambitious vaccination drive in its history, with images of relieved health care workers getting a shot in the arm flashing across TV screens and news sites, fresh data revealed that more than one-quarter of Americans say they probably or definitely would not take a coronavirus vaccine.

That is according to a survey released on Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation, which found that Republican, rural and Black Americans are among the most hesitant to be vaccinated.

The skepticism, while not totally unanticipated, still represents a challenge as the country tries to tamp down exploding infections, hospitalizations and deaths. On the same day as the first inoculations were administered, the United States passed 300,000 deaths — more than any other country.
The country is averaging more than 2,400 deaths a day, even more than in the spring. More than twice as many deaths are being announced each day than just a month ago.

The survey was conducted between Nov. 30 and Dec. 8 among a nationally representative random sample of 1,676 adults ages 18 and older (including interviews with 298 Hispanic adults and 390 non-Hispanic Black adults).
It is the first report from a new “Covid-19 Vaccine Monitor” that the Kaiser foundation has established to deeply examine the public’s views about coronavirus vaccination, and to track experiences in getting shots. Such information will be essential for public health experts who are trying to encourage vaccination.

Over all, 71 percent of respondents said they definitely would get a vaccine, an 8 percent increase from what Kaiser found in a September survey. Roughly a third (34 percent) now want the vaccine as soon as possible.

Another 39 percent said they would wait to see how the vaccine works out for other people before getting it themselves. Nine percent would get the vaccine only if it is required for work, school or another activity. Twelve percent said they would probably not take a vaccine, and 15 percent said they would definitely not get vaccinated — even if it was free and determined to be safe by scientists.

Different groups are hesitant for different reasons, the survey found. Black Americans appear most worried about side effects, or that they could get Covid-19 from the vaccine.
Nearly one in four Republicans “don’t want to get vaccinated because they don’t believe Covid poses a serious threat,” said Mollyann Brodie, the executive vice president of the foundation.
“It will be a real challenge to undo Covid denialism among this slice of President Trump’s political base,” she added.

VACCINE EDUCATION CAMPAIGN

A large-scale initiative, delayed by false starts and investigations, is getting off the ground just as the first vaccine shots are given.
At a national kickoff event, officials plead with the public to get vaccinated.

Five health workers at the George Washington University Hospital were vaccinated Monday afternoon in a small auditorium at a national ceremonial “kickoff event” staged by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Alex M. Azar II, the health secretary, and Dr. Jerome Adams, the surgeon general, spoke at the event and observed the vaccinations, the first of which went to Barbara Neiswander, an emergency department nursing supervisor who said that she was on duty when she received the vaccine.

The second hospital employee showcased at the event, Raymond Pla, a Black anesthesiologist in the emergency department, spoke after he was vaccinated about the pandemic’s burden on communities of color, and about the mistrust of vaccines that runs deep in African-American communities.
Dr. Pla said it was important for others to see him vaccinated, “to see someone who looks and walks and understands the stories, and understands what’s going on,” he said.
“Take that step forward, take that leap,” he said. “Because this is not just the best way forward. This is the only way forward.”

The event was careful to highlight the procedural elements of the vaccinations, including the workers confirming they had consented to the vaccine and were aware it was cleared by emergency authorization.
The five people were selected by an algorithm the hospital used to assign the first doses, the result of a survey hospital employees filled out that asked about age and underlying medical conditions.
“Receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, as exciting as it is, is just like getting any other safe and effective vaccine that Americans receive to protect us from illness,” Mr. Azar said.

On “CBS This Morning,” Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the chief adviser for the Trump administration’s Covid-19 vaccine program, called Monday an “amazing day,” and an “extraordinary achievement” by thousands of people involved in developing and distributing the vaccine.

Asked about his worries during the start of the mammoth logistical effort, he noted that his biggest concern “is the level of hesitancy in the country” from those who are skeptical or unwilling to take the vaccine
.

In an interview with MSNBC on Monday, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, laid out a timeline for a return to normalcy that stretched well into 2021. He stressed that until then, social distancing and masks will remain crucial in the fight to stop the spread of the virus.

He predicted that the average person with no underlying conditions would get the vaccine by the end of March or beginning of April. If the campaign is efficient and effective in convincing people to get the vaccine, most people could be vaccinated by late spring or early summer, he said.

“I believe we can get there by then so that by the time we get into the fall, we can start approaching some degree of relief, where the level of infection will be so low in society we can start essentially approaching some form of normality,” he said.

Until then, he stressed, the standard public health measures — distancing, masks, avoiding indoor gatherings — remain necessary.
“A vaccine right now is not a substitute for the normal standard public health measures,” he said, adding, “Only when you get the level of infection in society so low that it’s no longer a public health threat, can you then think about the possibility of pulling back on public health measures.”

The Trump administration is rushing to roll out a $250 million public education campaign to boost confidence in the vaccine. The rollout was delayed for weeks because of concerns that the campaign had become politicized.

President Trump, meanwhile, said on Sunday night that he would delay a plan for senior White House staff members to receive the coronavirus vaccine in the coming days. In an interview with MSNBC, Dr. Fauci said that plans to vaccinate Mr. Biden were “under discussion.”

‘It was so close’: Those who lost loved ones to Covid-19 grapple with a vaccine’s arrival.

Mary Smith heard the news that a coronavirus vaccine was being administered to Americans for the first time outside clinical trials. It had not come soon enough for her husband, Mike, who died from the virus at age 64 in November after rapidly becoming fatigued, short of breath and feverish. (An earlier version of this item misstated his age as 46.)
“It was so close,” Ms. Smith said. “It was so close.”

Ms. Smith, who lives outside Peoria, Ill., also contracted the virus, but her case was mild and felt more like a sinus infection, she said. His case sent him to the hospital three times, where he was eventually placed on a ventilator and died within days.
Mr. Smith was only a year or two away from retiring from his work at Caterpillar, a manufacturer of construction equipment. The couple had planned to use the extra time to visit their five grandchildren, who were “the love of his life,” Ms. Smith said.
Ms. Smith has endured comments from skeptics who have said they don’t trust the vaccine.
“These people who say, ‘I’m not getting it’ — all I can say is, ‘Why? Have you lost your mind?’” she said. “Have you not seen how many people have died? This is real.”

The news of people receiving the vaccine was also bittersweet for Petrice Brown of Charleston, S.C., whose husband, Keith, was an emergency medical technician. He died from the virus in September.

“He would have been first in line,” Ms. Brown said. “And you know why? Because he would have done whatever he could do to not get the virus, so he could continue to work. He filled in if people were sick.”

She said she was relieved to have work as a distraction from all the media attention to the vaccine’s arrival.
“It’s hard, because when it comes on the news, I think, ‘That could have been Keith getting the vaccine,’” she said. “It wasn’t years too late, it was months. It could have saved not just my husband’s life, but a lot of lives.”

In Canada, the first vaccines leave health workers in tears of relief.

The start of Canada’s vaccine campaign on Monday was an emotional one, with the first precious doses going to people from nursing homes: health care workers in Toronto, and residents in both Montreal and Quebec City.

That was recognition that nursing homes have been ground zero in Canada when it comes to both Covid-19’s cruel ravages and the storm of criticism over the country’s lack of preparation for it. More than 460,000 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Canada, and 13,400 have died from it.
“We have never distributed so many Kleenex boxes as the last few days,” said Sue Graham-Nutter, chief executive officer of the Rekai Centres, which runs two nursing homes in Toronto tapped to receive the country’s first vaccinations. “We have the images of what happened on the floors.”

Less than a week after Canada became the third country in the world to approve the vaccine created by the American drugmaker Pfizer and a German firm, BioNTech, the first shipment arrived to a Montreal airport on Sunday night. From there, kicking off the country’s largest largest-ever inoculation program, the boxes of frozen vials were dispersed to 14 sites across most of the country that were equipped with special freezers for the vaccine, which needs to be kept at ultracold temperatures.

With a relatively small population of just 38 million, Canada has agreed to buy up to 76 million doses from Pfizer and 414 million doses of other potential vaccines from other companies. Anita Anand, Canada’s minister of public services and procurement, described that as “the most number of doses per capita of any country in the world” at a news conference Monday.
The first inoculations were a moment of triumph for the Canadian government, and it could not have come at a more welcome time: The virus is raging across the country in its second wave, and much of Canada is in lockdown.

Puerto Rico gets only half the vaccine doses it was expecting.

Puerto Rico’s vaccination efforts hit a logistical snag on Monday when the government received half the number of doses it expected, and had to scramble to adjust its distribution plan.

It was not clear why only about 16,000 doses of the vaccine reached the island on Monday, instead of 32,500, said Daniel Colón-Ramos, a professor of cellular neuroscience at Yale University and one of the chairs of a scientific panel that is monitoring the vaccination plans closely. He said the rest were now expected to arrive Tuesday and Wednesday.
The delay caused last-minute changes to the National Guard’s plans to deliver vaccine to the handful of locations on the island that have the ultracold medical freezers required for storing it, along with backup generators to keep them working on an island with a notoriously unstable power grid, Mr. Colón-Ramos said.
The Guard’s adjutant general, José J. Reyes, said that in all, 205,000 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine are expected in the next three weeks (not 250,000 doses, as an earlier version of this item said).

The island’s first recipient was scheduled to be Yahaira Alicea, a respiratory therapist who cared for Puerto Rico’s first coronavirus patient back in March, an Italian woman from the Costa Luminosa cruise ship. Ms. Alicea’s vaccination at Ashford Hospital started out being scheduled on Tuesday, then was moved up to Monday, with reporters invited to cover the event.

But the governor’s press office requested that it be pushed back to Tuesday again, a change that caused an uproar on social media, where critics accused Gov. Wanda Vázquez Garced of delaying public safety for the sake of a photo opportunity.
In a statement, the governor said the vaccination was always supposed to be on Tuesday, with cameras rolling. “We want the people to see the vaccination, and give them confidence,” she said.
Mr. Colón-Ramos acknowledged that Puerto Rico has a “very recent history” of mishandling major logistical operations, including the discovery in January that supplies meant for earthquake survivors had sat unused in local warehouses.
“The challenge is implementation,” Mr. Colón-Ramos said of the vaccination effort. “People, including me, are very nervous about the implementation.”

Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine: 11 Things You Need to Know 
Dec. 8, 2020 - The New York Times

What’s the big deal? Was it part of Operation Warp Speed? When can you get one?
Pfizer's Covid Vaccine, Explained - The New York Times (nytimes.com)
By Carl Zimmer and Katie Thomas

As coronavirus cases surge in the United States and elsewhere, with little relief in sight, the world got good news on Monday. Pfizer and its partner, the German company, BioNTech, announced preliminary results that suggested their vaccine was more than 90 percent effective.
The news — the first results from any late-stage vaccine trial — buoyed stock markets and spirits as the public saw a glimmer of hope. But it’s worth noting that the news is still preliminary, and there is much that is still not known about how well the vaccine works.
And one thing remained clear: The vaccine will not come in time to rescue the world from the next several months, when the virus will take many more lives unless the public takes more stringent public health measures.

Here’s what we know, and don’t know, about the vaccine.
What did these scientists find out?

In July, Pfizer and BioNTech initiated a late-stage clinical trial on a coronavirus vaccine. Half of the people got the vaccine, while the other half got a placebo of salt water. The companies then waited for people to get sick to determine if the vaccine offered any protection.
So far, 94 participants out of nearly 44,000 have gotten sick with Covid-19. An independent board of experts looked at how many of those people got the vaccine, and how many got the placebo. That early analysis suggests the vaccine is over 90 percent effective.
As is standard for clinical trials, the data was “blinded,” meaning that no one except the independent board — not the volunteers, doctors, or the company’s top executives — knows how many of the 94 people sickened by the virus got the vaccine or the placebo. Given the estimate that the vaccine is over 90 percent effective, however, we can safely assume very few people who were vaccinated got Covid-19.

Is that a good result?
It is. The Food and Drug Administration had set a bar of 50 percent efficacy for vaccine makers who wanted to submit their candidates for emergency authorization. If the preliminary results from Pfizer and BioNTech bear out — and accurately reflect how the vaccine will work in the real world — then it’s far more protective than that.
To get a sense of how good these results are, it’s worth considering licensed vaccines that people regularly receive. On the low end, influenza vaccines are 40 to 60 percent effective at best, because the influenza virus keeps evolving into new forms year after year. By contrast, two doses of the measles vaccine are 97 percent effective

The Norwegian Medicines Agency has announced that two nursing home residents passed away days after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, and that an investigation has been launched into the deaths.
“We have to assess whether the vaccine is the cause of death, or if it is a coincidence that it happened soon after vaccination,” Medical Director Steiner Madsen said in a statement about the deaths. 
He also noted that, because people of advanced age are receiving the vaccine first, it is entirely possible the deaths could be coincidental. Around 400 people die every week in Norwegian nursing homes.

This is a problem ... across the USA': Health officials hope to speed up COVID-19 vaccine administration at nursing homes
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2021/01/08/covid-19-vaccine-rollout-slow-start-nursing-homes/6575508002/
KAREN WEINTRAUB AND TONY LEYS | USA TODAY | 9:27 am EST January 8, 2021


Vaccinologist Dr. Greg Poland discusses what it's like after your first dosage of COVID-19 vaccine.

Nursing homes have been slow to roll out COVID-19 vaccines, but federal, pharmacy and nursing home officials said they are on track to finish the job before the end of the month.
Only about 16% of vaccines distributed for use in nursing homes have been injected into residents and the staff who care for them, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 
But Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said those figures underestimate actual vaccinations, because there is a lag between the time shots are given and when they are recorded. 
Azar said the pace of vaccination has been slowed by the need to get consent forms from residents or their family members, but he expects vaccination rates to speed up soon.
"We will be seeing a significant ramp-up of those vaccines getting into nursing home patients," Azar said in a Wednesday call with reporters.

Your vaccine questions, answered:

 I had COVID, should I still get vaccinated?

What are the side effects?

What are its 'ingredients?'
But Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said Thursday that the process is not moving as fast as she expected.
"This is a problem that's happening all across the country," she said shortly before meeting with fellow governors and the drug store chains responsible for distributing the vaccine. "None of us are happy with the way this is being executed."

The COVID-19 vaccine is using new technology that has never been used before in traditional vaccines. Here's how an mRNA vaccine works.
Nursing home chains appear to be more satisfied.
Dr. Richard Feifer, chief medical officer of Genesis HealthCare, said vaccinations at his company's more than 350 nursing home facilities are on track.
"The nursing home program is going pretty well at this point," he said.
Genesis started vaccinating patients and staff on Dec. 21 and is about halfway done, he said. 
The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living, which represents more than 14,000 nursing homes and assisted living communities across the country, also said its original timeline seems to be holding.
“As of right now, we are not aware of widespread issues or delays with this vaccine rollout, and if there were, we would be among the first to sound the alarm," according to a prepared statement. "We continue to assist a minority of member providers who come to us looking for assistance or clarity, but the majority of providers tell us that their clinics have been scheduled or have already occurred and that overall, the program is running smoothly."

Feifer said he was concerned vaccine side effects might require staff members to take time off. But the rate of symptoms "has been much, much lower than we anticipated," he said. "We've had very few if any call-outs from staff."
Still, staff members at many of Genesis' facilities have declined to get vaccinated, Feifer said. In some facilities, 80% of employees are signing up for the shot, while in others, less than half are willing to get it. 
'We have new patients ... every single day'

Both vaccines authorized for use so far – made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna – require two doses to become fully effective. 
The government has contracted with CVS and Walgreens to visit long-term care facilities three times with vaccine: first to give initial doses as many people as possible; then to give second doses to those already vaccinated and cover everyone who didn't get a first dose; and finally to ensure that everyone has received a second dose. Those visits began in late December.

There is no federal plan, Feifer said, nor one in any of the 25 states where Genesis has facilities, for how to vaccinate people who miss those opportunities. "Yet we have new patients and new staff every single day," he said.

Both companies began delivering doses in December and say they are on track to provide initial doses to all 15,000 U.S. nursing homes by Jan. 25.

But it is slow going.
"Our work with long-term care facilities isn't a mass vaccination effort – quite the opposite," Larry Merlo, CVD Health president and CEO said in a statement. "We're dealing with a vulnerable population that requires onsite and, in some cases, in-room visits at facilities with fewer than 100 residents on average."

Despite those challenges, both CVS and Walgreens say they remain on schedule and will vaccinate more people as states direct them to and vaccine becomes available.

The companies both plan to expand into more than 30,000 assisted living facilities, each in the coming weeks, and to offer shots to the general public at their thousands of pharmacy locations once doses become available for mass distribution.
People will be able to schedule vaccination appointments via company apps, websites and toll-free numbers.

CVS Pharmacy said it has the capacity to administer 20-25 million shots per month.
Gen. Gus Perna, who has been in charge of distribution for the national vaccine effort, said CVS and Walgreens have done a great job so far of getting vaccines out to nursing homes. 
"It's really positive momentum throughout the country on this," Perna said.
But the momentum doesn't feel very fast in Iowa.
“We need CVS and Walgreens to move more quickly,” said Brent Willett, president of the Iowa Health Care Association, which represents most of the state's nursing homes and assisted living centers. The state has nearly 700 such facilities, with about 31,000 residents and 37,000 staff. 
Iowa nursing home residents represent less than 1% of the state’s population, but have accounted for more than a quarter of the state’s deaths from COVID-19. 
Kim Bahrenfuss of Davenport, Iowa, was initially told that vaccine would arrive on Dec. 28 in the Kahl Home where her mother, Paulette Hradek, lives. But that date slipped, and now, the first doses apparently won't be given until Jan. 20.
That means her mother won't be fully protected until the end of February or early March – a few weeks after her second dose.
"I was crushed," Bahrenfuss said, "when I heard about the delay."

4 volunteers develop FACIAL PARALYSIS after taking Pfizer Covid-19 jab, prompting FDA to recommend ‘surveillance for cases’
9 Dec, 2020 

Four trial participants who received the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine experienced facial paralysis, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA said the issue should be monitored as the jab becomes more widely available.
The potentially concerning cases were revealed after the US drug regulator published an analysis of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine ahead of a meeting to consider emergency use authorization for the jab in the United States. 
According to the documents, Bell’s palsy, a form of temporary facial paralysis, was reported by four participants during phase 3 trials. The individuals had been administered the jab, and no members of the placebo group experienced similar adverse effects. 
The condition resembles a stroke, with most sufferers watching helplessly as one side of their face droops and their muscles go limp. In some rare situations, both sides of the face may become paralyzed. It is unclear what causes Bell’s palsy, although the temporary paralysis usually goes away on its own.
