Objective:Health - In The News: No Mask Mandates | Anti-Covid Pill | Fines for the Unvaxxed

O:H header
Welcome to another exciting episode of Objective:Health's In the News, where we take a look at the latest health headlines bouncing around the collective consciousness and give you the O:H take.

On this week's show we talk about the reactions, and overreactions, to the dropping of mask mandates by a number of travel companies in the US. Most people cheered, but a particular breed is demanding the mandates be brought back.

We also discuss the anti-Covid pill currently being promoted by the Biden administration (don't worry; they say they have enough to go around, so you won't miss out!) We also talk about a proposed bill in Rhode Island that would impose fines on the unvaccinated and charge them double in tax!

Join us for all this and more on our latest episode of Objective:Health.

3 children die from hepatitis in Indonesia amid 'mysterious' global outbreak

map hepatitis global outbreak

More than 200 children have been sickened by the condition across the world in up to 14 countries since last October *cases in Canada, Japan and Wisconsin, Illinois and New York are still yet to be confirmed
Three children in Indonesia have died from a mysterious hepatitis which, if confirmed, would bring the global death toll to at least four.

The country's health ministry said the victims died from 'suspected acute hepatitis' last month and were all located in the capital of Jakarta.

Their symptoms included nausea, vomiting, heavy diarrhea, fever, jaundice, seizures and loss of consciousness — all tell-tale signs of the deadly liver disease.

Tests are underway to confirm their cause of death. Indonesia has not officially logged any cases of hepatitis since the outbreak began.

The ages of the children have not been revealed and it is not clear if they had underlying health conditions.


Comment: Other reports have stated the ages of the children elsewhere to be below 5 years old, which would technically make them too young to have been subject to the experimental coronavirus jabs. Although it's also notable that this outbreak is occurring now, because adenovirus - used in a number of the jabs - is known to circulate all year, peaking in late winter and early spring, which the northern hemisphere recently entered. In addition, breastfeeding mothers who suffered the jabs, have been known to pass on coronavirus antibodies via their breast milk to their children; and hepatitis is also known to be passed by breast milk (and other bodily fluids); are these the connections we're looking at here or are there other factors not yet identified?

The Bangladesh Mask Study provides no evidence that masks reduce Covid-19 infection

bangladesh study
I have sent the following letter to the Editor of Science (note: I sent my analysis to the lead author of the study - Jason Abaluck - before making the report public and the report contains some changes following communication with him).

Dear Sir/Madam

You recently published the article "Impact of community masking on COVID-19: A cluster-randomized trial in Bangladesh". Science, 375(6577), eabi9069. https://doi.org/10.1126/science.abi9069 by Abaluck et al which contained the summary statement:

"A randomized-trial of community-level mask promotion in rural Bangladesh during COVID-19 shows that the intervention tripled mask usage and reduced symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infections, demonstrating that promoting community mask-wearing can improve public health."

As explained in the attached report, this statement grossly exaggerates the actual findings of the study and - unsurprisingly - has been widely used by the media to argue that the study provides the most convincing evidence yet of the effectiveness of masks in preventing covid-19 transmission and infection. More worryingly, the article has been cited explicitly to justify continuing or reintroducing aspects of mask mandates in the USA, UK and elsewhere. Because the paper provides no evidence that mask wearing reduces covid transmission or infections, it needs to be corrected or withdrawn.

Yours sincerely

Professor Norman Fenton

What's causing acute pediatric hepatitis?

Hepatitis
There has been a spate of reports regarding pediatric hepatitis of unknown origin around the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) as of April 21
"Cases have been reported in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the United Kingdom) (114), Spain (13), Israel (12), the United States of America (9), Denmark (6), Ireland (<5), The Netherlands (4), Italy (4), Norway (2), France (2), Romania (1), and Belgium (1). . . .

"The common viruses that cause acute viral hepatitis (hepatitis viruses A, B, C, D and E) have not been detected in any of these cases."

Comment: The fact that hepatitis is being found in clusters located in specific regions is very strange indeed. One would expect that if this was caused solely by vaccine shedding or mask wearing, the occurrence of this disease would be homogeneously distributed throughout the entire population of countries who enforced masks and implemented mass-vaccination campaigns.

Yet that is not what we are seeing. Rather, distinct outbreaks are occurring in clusters. This suggests that some other unknown causative factor is involved.

Over 1.2 MILLION adverse events reported since the rollout of COVID shot

pfizer
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new data showing a total of 1,247,131 reports of adverse events following COVID-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and April 22, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.

The data included a total of 27,532 reports of deaths — an increase of 183 over the previous week — and 224,766 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 1,930 compared with the previous week.

Two studies on adverse cardiac events in young people following vaccination: which is more credible?

Two recent studies on cardiac events in young people following vaccination - one in Israel and one in the UK - have come to very different conclusions.

This one based on Israel's National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) dataset from 2019 to 2021 showed that there was a 25% increase in volume of cardiac arrest and acute coronary syndrome emergency calls in 16-39-year-olds between Jan-May 2021 compared to the 2019-2020 baseline. This increase was significantly associated with the rates of 1st and 2nd vaccine doses administered to this age group but were not with COVID-19 infection rates.

In contrast, a preprint - whose main authors are the people at the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) in the UK responsible for producing the monthly vaccine mortality surveillance reports - came to a very different conclusion about the effect of the vaccine on young people. This preprint focused on cardiac and all-cause deaths of individuals aged 12-29 occurring within 12 weeks of vaccination or testing positive for COVID-19. They concluded that there is no evidence of an association between COVID-19 vaccination and an increased risk of death in young people, but that COVID-19 infection was associated with substantially higher risk of cardiac related death and all-cause death.

Pfizer seeks FDA emergency use approval on booster jabs for kids 5-11 years old

COVID booster jabs for the nation's youngest citizens could soon be forthcoming after pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and BioNTech formally asked the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve an emergency use authorization for the extra vaccine doses for children from 5 to 11 years old.

On Tuesday, the companies announced that an application has been filed with the agency which is tasked with ensuring the safety and efficacy of drugs, citing the results of clinical trial data that showed that the additional shot increased protection against the virus in children of the age group.

According to a press release put out by the companies, "Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech SE (Nasdaq: BNTX) today submitted an application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of a 10-µg booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for children 5 through 11 years of age (also referred to as children ages 5 through <12)."

Comment: As is suggested above, the request is likely nothing more than a formality. The FDA will approve the shots as fast as Pfizer can make them, despite the fact that it's been found that the Pfizer vaccine is significantly less effective in kids 5-11.

New study may explain why apathy is the first symptom of Alzheimer's

New research hypothesizes degeneration in a brain region called the nucleus accumbens could trigger apathy, the earliest psychiatric sign of Alzheimer's disease.
Compelling new research from the Indiana University School of Medicine has homed in on a degenerative mechanism that could explain why symptoms such as apathy are the first signs of Alzheimer's disease. The findings suggest disrupting this process could slow the progression of Alzheimer's-related dementia.

A growing body of research has recently indicated apathy is one of the earliest signs of dementia. Before cognitive decline becomes apparent and memory problems arise, apathy has been found to signal the onset of neurodegeneration. But what is actually going on in the brain to cause this neuropsychiatric symptom?

Pharmacologist Yao-Ying Ma spent most of her career investigating the neurological mechanisms of substance abuse. Her background in drug addiction led to a research focus on a part of the brain called the nucleus accumbens, a brain region that plays a strong role influencing motivation and reward pathways.

Ma's recent research focus has shifted to neurodegenerative disease. After all, the same psychiatric symptoms seen in addiction (mood swings, apathy and anxiety) are now known to be some of the earliest signs of dementia. So the question Ma wanted to answer was what was going [on] in the nucleus accumbens during the very earliest stages of neurodegenerative disease - before damage in other areas such as the hippocampus led to the more common cognitive decline seen in dementia?

Nearly 60% of US population had COVID by February: CDC

This scanning electron microscope image shows SARS-CoV-2 (yellow)—also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus that causes COVID-19—isolated from a patient, emerging from the surface of cells (blue/pink) cultured in the lab.
By February of this year, 58 percent of the US population — more than 190 million people — had been infected with COVID, according to an antibody survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published Tuesday.

The figure is far higher than the 80 million officially recorded cases, with the majority of infections undiagnosed, asymptomatic or unreported.

Roughly 75 percent of people under 18 had been infected, according to a paper based on a nationally representative study of antibody levels.

There was a huge surge during the winter Omicron wave, particularly among children.

Each month from September 2021 to January 2022, the study examined some 75,000 blood specimens taken from across the country, as well as 45,000 samples in February.

The study examined only antibodies created in response to prior infection, not vaccination.

Objective:Health - Sudden Surge in Liver Inflammation Around the World - Vaccines to Blame?

O:H header
On April 15 the WHO announced an outbreak of hepatitis of unknown origin in the UK. Since that time, they've specified that it seems to be centered on young children. And it's not limited to the UK.

As of April 21, there have been at least 169 cases of acute hepatitis reported from 11 countries (Cases have been reported in the UK (114), Spain (13), Israel (12), the United States of America (9), Denmark (6), Ireland (<5), The Netherlands (4), Italy (4), Norway (2), France (2), Romania (1), and Belgium (1).) The kids who have been tested have come up negative for hepatitis A through E, but some have tested positive for adenovirus.

So far they don't know what's causing it, but are explicitly stating it has nothing to do with vaccinations since most of the children infected were too young to have received the shots. We don't think that rules anything out.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we speculate as to possible reasons we may be seeing this strange hepatitis outbreak.
