Pandemic over: but stay smart with new information
Joel S. Hirschhorn
There is good reason to stay very alert to new information to better protect your health.
Soon after President Biden said the COVID pandemic was over I saw many new articles with key information.
The Washington Post did a major story with the title “Covid is still a leading cause of death as the virus recedes —- But many Americans dispute the data and the risks — much as they have throughout the pandemic.”
Here is a key statement with many ramifications:
“Federal health officials say that covid-19 remains one of the leading causes of death in the United States, tied to about 250 deaths daily, on average, mostly among the old and immunocompromised.
Few Americans are treating it as a leading killer, however — in part because they are not hearing about those numbers, don’t trust them or don’t see them as relevant to their own lives.”
In other words, close to 900,000 deaths annually despite a long list of safe, proven ways to treat COVID and save lives other than vaccines. The great Dr. Peter A. McCullough has published many articles where these life-saving options are described, for example.
It it truly amazing that anyone is dying from COVID. The article notes that in many cases those dying have been fully vaccinated. No surprise. By now everyone should know that all the COVID vaccines are both ineffective and unsafe. Indeed many of designated COVID deaths really result from vaccines.
Another reality long COVID
It has been estimated that about 14 million Americans are suffering with a host of long COVID symptoms.
What has received little attention is that the COVID vaccines may be causing this illness that has few comprehensive medical solutions. Here is an article on this subject:
“In rare cases, coronavirus vaccines may cause Long Covid–like symptoms.” Very few medical experts and researchers have been willing to pursue this topic.
FDA removes emergency use authorization for original COVID vaccines
By now many people know that the pandemic has been ended. But there is more to know.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration withdrew its emergency use authorization for older messenger RNA vaccines by Moderna Inc MRNA.O and Pfizer-BioNTech PFE.N/22UAy.DE as it now recommends the use of newer Omicron-targeting shots for all doses. In other words the government is pushing booster vaccines. Even though more people are rejecting them and it is clear they do not prevent getting COVID.
Here is the official view:
“At this stage of the pandemic, data support simplifying the use of the authorized mRNA bivalent COVID-19 vaccines and the agency believes that this approach will help encourage future vaccination,” said Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. “Evidence is now available that most of the U.S. population 5 years of age and older has antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, either from vaccination or infection that can serve as a foundation for the protection provided by the bivalent vaccines. COVID-19 continues to be a very real risk for many people, and we encourage individuals to consider staying current with vaccination, including with a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine. The available data continue to demonstrate that vaccines prevent the most serious outcomes of COVID-19, which are severe illness, hospitalization, and death.”
But will this action do anything to curb COVID deaths?
Is there any good reason to trust the government and the medical and public health establishments? NO!
