The Corona vaccines don’t work very well. Efficacy statistics are misleading; they clearly have no overall impact on infections, hospitalisations or mortality. The question is what happens next.
Vaccinate the elderly and vulnerable, everyone else will get it, including children, to whom it poses near zero risk. The risk of death to healthy non-elderly adultts remains very, very, very low. Include in all discussion the current risk stratification data and that is the mantra we should all adopt. Alex Berenson forwarded your link via his stack. That was a good thing. Thanks for writing.
When to the powers that be start focusing on TREATMENTS for those who contract covid, regardless of vaccination status?? No other infection, condition, desease, etc doesn't have treatment options, except for covid....they, the powers that be, go so far as to block treatment options or make them incredibly hard to get. It's past time to make the various treatments readily available...they don't have to be 100% successful, but we should be given the choice to try them!!
Eugyppius? Loved it. You are bringing forth the history of how a virus will virus, no matter our efforts. Most of what you wrote, I learned in high school and college, and I didn't study medicine!!! Our "Public Health" officials are complicit in causing thousands of deaths that didn't need to happen. You are right in saying they kept readily available and effective treatments away from people, which is more than a disgrace, it's a crime in my mind.
Why would anyone assume that the powers-that-be want to reduce deaths? There's utterly no evidence for that, other than their own self-serving claims. Judging from their behavior, they seem to want to maximize deaths. Judging from their words (their oft-stated desire to reduce overpopulation), they seem to want to maximize deaths. Did the leaders in WWI think that trench warfare saved lives? Or did they simply not care what price others paid for their policy ideas? To me, seems like vaccines have worked exactly as intended: maximizing government power by perpetuating and extending the "emergency." Whatever powers they don't get vaccinating us, they'll get to ensure we get boosters and so on. This is a war against all of us & the good guys are losing. (To put it another way, if vaccines work as advertised, I'd still be against them because I prefer liberty to life - that used to be a common preference in America & it must be our preference if we are to remain free.)
My human immune system is 200,000 years in development, is 99.972% effective against cov if it actually exists and has no side effects. To treat the vulnerable might make sense but we know today that the 99.972% is a real number. Delta numbers are 99.XXX%. What the heck are we doing. There is no reason to jab the vast part of the population. The idea that Pfizer and Moderna pulled their control group for some valid scientific reason is bunk. They probably closed the control because the control ( natural immunity) was doing better than the jabbed group. To allow the control group to continue would show that there was no value in the jab and now someone has made billions jabbing people and I personally wonder if Fauxi has profited off the jab.. Get the numbers from the control group to see the trajectory of the control group before it was canceled. I am not a betting man BUT,,,,,
The political class seems averse to using exit ramps when available. The "emergency" helps them expand and consolidate power.
I based my US projections in 2020 off of seasonality & historical flu trends - especially H1N1, the last novel virus to cause a global pandemic. In the past few days, I've paused some of my research for DRASTIC so that I could look at what the current US data might tell me about vaccine efficacy. Your conclusions look a lot like mine [not a good justification, lol, but the evidence speaks for itself]; 8 of 10 states with the highest CFR's over the last 4 months are blue states with higher vax uptake, including the top 6. Further, only 5/50 states have a higher CFR since May 1st than in the 16 months prior, and there's a similar 4:1 ratio and correlation pattern among them.
Given all of the data, what happens next is that some unnecessarily high number of people will die from COVID while the gov. doubles down on the same tactics that led to the selection of a virus that produces exponentially more virions in order to compensate for social distancing, rather than allowing the least vulnerable to act as a natural vent for less virulent variants to emerge.
But then again, I'm not a scientist, so what do I know?
A problem with the unvaccinated death number in hospitals is that they are counting COVID deaths from January to June, in only half of that timeframe were vaccines widely available, so they are counting as dead people who had no access to a vaccine.
They'll likely do the same with double-vaxxed COVID deaths once fully-vaxxed means 2 shots+booster - voilà - more "unvaccinated deaths."
The politics of the Corona Virus started because Trump was POTUS. In their efforts to discredit anything the President said they furthered the destructive ability of this disease. Trump might be inarticulate and arrogant but the Powerful caused the deaths of millions. Failure to use simple drugs known to help was ignored at the cost of untold and uncounted human lives.
Obviously, the answer is therapeutics. It always has been. Ivermectin will prove to save us all, if we will only let it.
Your conclusions have been obvious since the end of last summers surge. By that time we had all the data that illustrates what age and health demographic was vulnerable to COVID. Yet here we are. Our technocrats will continue to push this nonsense until the people demand it to stop. But right now there’s an entire demographic that has no idea what the facts of COVID are because they’re not reading articles like this - they’re eyes are glued to BBC or CNN and MSNBC.
Surprised how so many miss the obvious agenda of the WEF, WHO, IMF, Gates, Soros. They are using the cold virus to create fear, and with bought politicians, to gain control. Some even say it was this group that released the virus. Makes sense as they benefit the most. The Great Reset they told us (the great unwashed) about. And most of society is participating as obedient sheep generally do.
2 crucially important misconceptions in your article:
1st paragraph: Countries with high vaccination rates are seeing higher deaths, especially in youth, not merely the same.
2nd paragraph: You write, “the unvaccinated are entering the hospital and dying at very high rates indeed . . . “ No they are not. You can learn that from speaking to almost any ICU nurse or doctor privately. Peak death following the mRNA injection is 2 days, with a narrow bell curve over time since injection. This is shown in VAERS. This short period is within the 14-day window of the CDC’s Newspeak definition of “unvaccinated.” It is the recently injected who are dying, not the truly unvaccinated.
Agreed, agreed, agreed: COVID is now endemic; let kids get it and shake it off; enough of the pandemic porn, etc.
It's been some time since I've updated my own analysis of "excess mortality," but there are other reasonable sources one can consult on the fly. And it looks like excess mortality has basically regressed to zero almost everywhere.
Numbers like case counts and fatalities attributed to COVID can be manipulated. But counts of all-cause mortality is harder to distort. And the numbers are consistent with the "pandemic" (such as it was) being over.
COVID parties for all healthy people--seriously.
I enjoyed this. But you make an assumption that the vaccines actually worked in the first place and only failed due to Delta. I believe this is a fallacy -a common one. All the testing and analysis is performed by those with a financial stake in the outcome. People trust “the science” when the volume is so large.
But Surgisphere should have taught us how EASY it is to manipulate outcomes and produce “approved science.”
Can all the studies that seem to show the vaccines were initially effective be wrong? Yes.
And who counts “covid hospitalizations?”Those who advocate the vaccine.
