CDC warns virus can spread more than 6 feet under certain conditions

Six feet distance sign
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned in a document published Friday of "repeatedly documented" instances of coronavirus spreading through the air to people more than 6 feet away under certain conditions.

The new document explaining the latest understanding of how the virus spreads is part of a shifting emphasis towards airborne transmission of the virus.
"Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from inhalation of virus in the air farther than six feet from an infectious source can occur," the new document says in large letters, while noting it is "less likely than at closer distances."
The risk of this kind of spread is highest indoors in places with "inadequate ventilation," when people are shouting or singing, or when people are exposed for long periods of time, the CDC said.

Comment: If this is true, it means that all the "measures" that they enforced, like staying at home and curfews actually increased the spreading of the virus. Now, if this "dangerous" virus" can be suspended in the air, how can masks protect us from it.

We all breathe the same air full of thousands of viruses and other microorganisms. It's always been that way. According to some scientific papers, some human-virus interactions can be helpful for us as a species.

All these rules are designed to confuse, gain control and strip people from their basic human rights. The measures are not here for the virus, the virus is here for the measures.

Will people be able to break through this massive programming and finally see that the illogical measures are not imposed to protect anyone from the virus?

Ivermectin update

ivermectin vs Covid

Back in January I wrote an article about four randomized controlled trials of ivermectin as a treatment for covid-19 that had at that time released their results to the public. Each of those four trials had promising results, but each was also too small individually to show any meaningful impact on the hard outcomes we really care about, like death. When I meta-analyzed them together however, the results suddenly appeared very impressive. Here's what that meta-analysis looked like:
Ivermectin Results

It showed a massive 78% reduction in mortality in patients treated with covid-19. Mortality is the hardest of hard end points, which means it's the hardest for researchers to manipulate and therefore the least open to bias. Either someone's dead, or they're alive. End of story.

You would have thought that this strong overall signal of benefit in the midst of a pandemic would have mobilized the powers that be to arrange multiple large randomized trials to confirm these results as quickly as possible, and that the major medical journals would be falling over each other to be the first to publish these studies.

That hasn't happened.

Rather the opposite, in fact. South Africa has even gone so far as to ban doctors from using ivermectin on covid-19 patients. And as far as I can tell, most of the discussion about ivermectin in mainstream media (and in the medical press) has centred not around its relative merits, but more around how its proponents are clearly deluded tin foil hat wearing crazies who are using social media to manipulate the masses.

New study claims coronavirus deaths are 57% higher than official count — up to 900,000 in the US

Study estimates the worldwide number of deaths from the virus could be as many as 7 million.

While coronavirus infections and deaths are falling across the country, one study claims that the actual number of deaths from the pandemic is 57% higher than the official count.

The study by researchers at the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation was published on Thursday and said the actual number of coronavirus deaths in the United States could be as high as 900,000.

Comment: Considering the number of deaths that were being mis-reported as Covid (dying with Covid as opposed to dying from Covid), it seems highly suspect to suppose the actual death count higher than the reported numbers. And since the article brings up India, it's quite likely the numbers there are being exaggerated as well.

Spleen-to-liver signals control systemic inflammation, rat study reveals

cytokine
© NATALLIA YATSKOVA/ISTOCK.COM,
In rats, the spleen directs a cytokine surge that drives system-wide inflammation, but it is not, as once believed, the main producer of the chemical messenger.
Contrary to established dogma, the spleen is not the principal source of the pro-inflammatory cytokine called tumor necrosis factor (TNF), which drives the sort of system-wide inflammation seen in sepsis. A paper in Science Signaling last week (April 20) reports that the liver and lungs of rats produce more TNF than the spleen does, but the spleen remains the master regulator, of the liver at least, instructing the nearby organ, via lipid signals, on how much TNF to make.

"This is a very interesting article reporting that the spleen enhances TNFα production in the liver. . . [and] showing the intermodulation between organs and the complex mechanisms of physiologic interplay," Duke University's Luis Ulloa, who studies immunobiology and was not involved in the paper, writes in an email to The Scientist.

COVID vaccines: Necessity, efficacy and safety


Comment: This article was quickly censored by Medium shortly after it was up due to "violation of Medium rules". An archived version can be found here (although it appears that even Wayback Machine's days might be numbered)


vaccines
Abstract: COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers have been exempted from legal liability for vaccine-induced harm. It is therefore in the interests of all those authorising, enforcing and administering COVID-19 vaccinations to understand the evidence regarding the risks and benefits of these vaccines, since liability for harm will fall on them.

In short, the available evidence and science indicate that COVID-19 vaccines are unnecessary, ineffective and unsafe.
  • Necessity: Immunocompetent individuals are protected against SARS-CoV-2 by cellular immunity. Vaccinating low-risk groups is therefore unnecessary. For immunocompromised individuals who do fall ill with COVID-19 there is a range of medical treatments that have been proven safe and effective. Vaccinating the vulnerable is therefore equally unnecessary. Both immunocompetent and vulnerable groups are better protected against variants of SARS-CoV-2 by naturally acquired immunity and by medication than by vaccination.
  • Efficacy: Covid-19 vaccines lack a viable mechanism of action against SARS-CoV-2 infection of the airways. Induction of antibodies cannot prevent infection by an agent such as SARS-CoV-2 that invades through the respiratory tract. Moreover, none of the vaccine trials have provided any evidence that vaccination prevents transmission of the infection by vaccinated individuals; urging vaccination to "protect others" therefore has no basis in fact.
  • Safety: The vaccines are dangerous to both healthy individuals and those with pre-existing chronic disease, for reasons such as the following: risk of lethal and non-lethal disruptions of blood clotting including bleeding disorders, thrombosis in the brain, stroke and heart attack; autoimmune and allergic reactions; antibody-dependent enhancement of disease; and vaccine impurities due to rushed manufacturing and unregulated production standards.
The risk-benefit calculus is therefore clear: the experimental vaccines are needless, ineffective and dangerous. Actors authorising, coercing or administering experimental COVID-19 vaccination are exposing populations and patients to serious, unnecessary, and unjustified medical risks.

New Report Sheds Light on Vaccine Doomsday Cult

"The risk-benefit calculus is therefore clear: the experimental vaccines are needless, ineffective and dangerous. Actors authorizing, coercing or administering experimental COVID-19 vaccination are exposing populations and patients to serious, unnecessary, and unjustified medical risks." Doctors for Covid Ethics, April 29, 2021
An explosive new study by researchers at the prestigious Salk Institute casts doubt on the current crop of gene-based vaccines that may pose a grave risk to public health. The article, which is titled "The novel coronavirus' spike protein plays additional key role in illness", shows that SARS-CoV-2's "distinctive 'spike' protein".."damages cells, confirming COVID-19 as a primarily vascular disease." While the paper focuses strictly on Covid-related issues, it unavoidably raises questions about the new vaccines that contain billions of spike proteins that could greatly increase the chances of severe illness or death. Here's an excerpt from the article dated April 30, 2021:
"In the new study, the researchers created a "pseudovirus" that was surrounded by SARS-CoV-2 classic crown of spike proteins, but did not contain any actual virus. Exposure to this pseudovirus resulted in damage to the lungs and arteries of an animal model — proving that the spike protein alone was enough to cause disease. Tissue samples showed inflammation in endothelial cells lining the pulmonary artery walls. (Note- "Vascular endothelial cells line the entire circulatory system, from the heart to the smallest capillaries.")

The team then replicated this process in the lab, exposing healthy endothelial cells (which line arteries) to the spike protein. They showed that the spike protein damaged the cells by binding ACE2. This binding disrupted ACE2's molecular signaling to mitochondria (organelles that generate energy for cells), causing the mitochondria to become damaged and fragmented.

Previous studies have shown a similar effect when cells were exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but this is the first study to show that the damage occurs when cells are exposed to the spike protein on its own." ("The novel coronavirus' spike protein plays additional key role in illness", Salk.edu)

Dr. Mercola threatened into removing all articles on his site related COVID-19, Vitamins D, C and Zinc

Censorship
Over the past year, I've been researching and writing as much as I can to help you take control of your health, as fearmongering media and corrupt politicians have destroyed lives and livelihoods to establish global control of the world's population, using the COVID-19 pandemic as their justification.

I've also kept you informed about billionaire-backed front groups like the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a partner of Bill Gates' Alliance for Science, both of whom have led campaigns aimed at destroying my reputation and censoring the information I share.

Other attackers include HealthGuard, which ranks health sites based on a certain set of "credibility criteria." It has sought to discredit my website by ensuring warnings appear whenever you search for my articles or enter my website in an internet browser.

Comment: There has been a long and concerted effort to attack and smear Mercola and his website which he's been defending for years. See also:

Significant jump this week in reported injuries, deaths after COVID vaccine

Data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the number of injuries and deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) following COVID vaccines showed a significant jump in reports of injuries and deaths compared with last week's numbers.

VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed.

Every Friday, VAERS makes public all vaccine injury reports received as of a specified date, usually about a week prior to the release date. Today's data show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 23, a total of 118,902 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 3,544 deaths — an increase of 358 over the previous week — and 12,619 serious injuries, up 2,467 since last week.

US officials: Anxiety drove vaccine reactions in 5 states

It was anxiety — and not a problem with the shotsthat caused fainting, dizziness and other short-term reactions in dozens of people at coronavirus vaccine clinics in five states, U.S. health officials have concluded.

Experts say the clusters detailed Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are an example of a phenomenon that's been chronicled for decades from a variety of different vaccines. Basically, some people get so freaked out by injections that their anxiety spurs a physical reaction.

"We knew we were going to see this" as mass COVID-19 vaccine clinics were set up around the world, said Dr. Noni MacDonald, a Canadian researcher who has studied similar incidents.

The CDC authors said the reports came in over three days, April 7 to 9, from clinics in California, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa and North Carolina. The investigation was based on interviews with, and reports by, clinic staff.

Comment: Is it mind over matter or matter over mind? Perhaps not all these folks are wussies. One thing is certain: Vaccine makers do not want negative statistics to mar the results and affect their bottom line.
