Researchers shoot holes in study touted for confirming 'masks work' in curbing COVID

An acclaimed study on the effectiveness of masks in reducing symptomatic COVID-19 is facing new scrutiny after a researcher highlighted the minuscule infection differences between "treatment" and control groups randomized across 600 Bangladeshi villages.

Accused of design flaws and overstating its findings when it was released in late August, the study's newly released data show only 20 more symptomatic COVID cases in the villages that didn't receive masks and related education, reminders and "role modeling by community leaders."

In a total study population of 342,126 adults, 1,106 people in the control group tested positive, compared to 1,086 in the treatment group. The latter group represented 52% of the study population.

"I have a hard time going from these numbers to the assured conclusions that 'masks work' that was promulgated by the media or the authors after this preprint [not yet peer reviewed] appeared," University of California Berkeley professor Ben Recht, who studies machine learning, wrote in an essay last week.

Pfizer vaccine injury data ordered released by judge shows shocking risk level

Any time one even mentions a story, data, or even VAERS numbers showing serious injury or death resulting from the vaccine, the bio-medical state lobby close their ears and shout while their censors in Big Tech label it as misinformation. But now we have it from the horse's mouth - Pfizer's own vaccine injury data - a shocking amount of death and injury that is likely under-reported. This means that the FDA knew from day one these vaccines were unsafe to the point that they would typically be denied authorization, and certainly not funded, mandated, and marketed with a budget and energy that have never been placed behind a product since the dawn of time.

Pursuant to an agreement based on a FOIA lawsuit, the FDA has agreed to release 500 pages of vaccine data documents per month. There is a total of 329,000 pages of documents containing the information the agency relied upon to approve the shots, but they have asked a court to give them 55 years to release them. Last week, the FDA released the first five documents to a group of scientists suing for the information, and one of them reveals Pfizer's data on adverse events through Feb. 28. The 38-page document details the cumulative post-authorization safety data reported to Pfizer's system during the early days of the mass vaccination campaign.

In total, Pfizer discloses the existence of 42,086 adverse event case reports containing 158,893 total events, including 1,227 deaths. 25,957 of the events were classified as "Nervous system disorders." So for those who think that somehow VAERS is not accurate or is overreporting deaths, these are numbers straight from the horse's mouth just through February. Remember, it is extremely hard to trace many serious events back to the vaccine, including death, especially if there is a few weeks' lag time, and most especially with people already in advanced age. So these are just the ones that were "submitted voluntarily, and the magnitude of underreporting is unknown."

'Post pandemic stress disorder'...seriously?

There's a reason heart attacks and blood clots are about to become a LOT more common...but the vaccine has nothing to do with it. Apparently.
Heart Attack

When the vaccine “post pandemic stress disorder” hits.
Doctors are warning that hundreds of thousands of people in the UK could be at increased risk of heart disease or cardiac events.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, psychological therapist Mark Rayner and vascular surgeon Tahir Hussein said that the UK could see "300,000 new patients with heart issues" in the near future.

What's to blame? Well, that would be "Post Pandemic Stress Disorder". A new condition "yet to be recognised", even though "many experts believe it should be".

It's a totally real thing. They didn't just completely make it up. Don't be cynical.

You see, all the "pandemic" related anxiety and stress has taken such a toll on the public that doctors are predicting a 5% increase in heart disease, nationwide, and not just in the elderly or infirm.

According to Dr Hussein, he is already seeing...
a big increase in thrombotic-related vascular conditions in my practice. Far younger patients are being admitted and requiring surgical and medical intervention than prior to the pandemic.
Now, some of you demented anti-vaxxers out there might be asking crazy questions like "could this increase in blood clots and heart disease be linked to injecting millions of people with an untested vaccine?"

But that's absurd. And I told you to stop being cynical.

Scientists claim to have discovered a "potential mechanism" that triggers rare blood clots in some people who receive the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid vaccine.

Links between the vaccine and rare, sometimes fatal, blood clots have prompted some countries to restrict its use to older adults or favor alternative shots.

To be sure, medical experts have repeatedly said the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks associated with it, with one study concluding that Covid-19 poses a much bigger threat of blood clots than vaccination.

Scientists from Cardiff University in the U.K. and Arizona State University in the U.S. worked with AstraZeneca to investigate vaccine-induced blood clots, publishing their findings on Wednesday in the journal Science Advances.

Spike protein increases heart attacks and destroys immune ​system

One Vaccine to Rule All

"This is really a technology designed to poison people, there's really no two-ways about it." Dr. Michael Palmer on mRNA vaccines
Question- Does the Covid-19 vaccine cause heart attacks?

Answer- It does, and researchers are closer to understanding the mechanism that triggers those events.

Question- How can I be sure you're telling the truth?

Answer- Well, for starters, there's a research paper that appeared recently in the prestigious Circulation magazine that draws the same conclusion. Here's an excerpt from the paper
"We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium (layer of cells lining the blood vessels) and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis (clotting), cardiomyopathy, (a group of diseases that affect the heart muscle) and other vascular events following vaccination."("Abstract 10712: Mrna COVID Vaccines Dramatically Increase Endothelial Inflammatory Markers and ACS Risk as Measured by the PULS Cardiac Test: a Warning", Circulation)
It's actually quite rare for researchers to be so blunt in their analysis, but there it is in black and white. As you can see, they didn't pull their punches. Here's how Alex Berenson summed it up on his blogsite at Substack:
"A new study of 566 patients who received either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines shows that signs of cardiovascular damage soared following the shots. The risk of heart attacks or other severe coronary problems more than doubled months after the vaccines were administered, based on changes in markers of inflammation and other cell damage. Patients had a 1 in 4 risk for severe problems after the vaccines, compared to 1 in 9 before. ("If you like heart problems, you'll love the Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccines", Alex Berenson, Substack)
"Doubled"? "The risk of heart attacks.. more than doubled" after vaccination?

Mass vaccination fails to halt Covid transmission rates - study

Successful vaccine rollouts have failed to stop Covid transmission, with new data showing the prevalence of the virus increasing in fully jabbed individuals, according to a medical study in The Lancet.

Examining new infections in Germany, researchers found that the rate of cases among fully vaccinated individuals aged 60 and older has risen from 16.9% in July to 58.9% in October.

Offering a clear assessment that fully vaccinated people are increasingly becoming the source of Covid transmission, the study identified a similar situation in the UK. Throughout Britain, the number of household contacts exposed to unvaccinated cases (23%) was slightly lower than the number exposed to vaccinated individuals (25%).

Study shows breakthrough COVID-19 infections in vaccinated occur more often and are more severe in immunocompromised

A real-world retrospective cohort study involving nearly 1.2 million people shows COVID-19 infections in the 'fully' vaccinated are rare but are more common and severe in people with weaker immune systems.

The findings, published today in the Journal of Medical Economics, are led by researchers from Pfizer, which has co-developed [with BioNTech] one of three currently available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States.

Analyzing healthcare records, the study team found within their pool of fully vaccinated people only 0.08% experienced a breakthrough infection between December 10, 2020 and July 8, 2021. However, although immunocompromised individuals represented just 18% of those studied, they accounted for over 38% of infections; nearly 60% of all hospitalizations; and 100% of deaths.

The proportion of people with breakthrough infections was three times higher among immunocompromised individuals (0.18%) than among the reference group of non-immunocompromised individuals (0.06%)."The results supplement other real-world studies, and support the introduction of a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to increase protection among the immunocompromised individuals" — states Manuela Di Fusco, lead author from the Pfizer Health Economics and Outcomes Research team.

Hygiene theater shown to be pointless
Professor Jim Naismith, Director of the Rosalind Franklin Institute and Professor of Structural Biology at the University of Oxford, has pointed out that, despite England dropping its mask mandate in July while Scotland kept its one in force, there is no evidence of this policy making any difference in the two countries' infection rates. He writes:

COVID survivors with natural immunity at low risk for reinfection or severe symptoms, study finds

Study: Ultrapotent antibodies against diverse and highly transmissible SARS-CoV-2 variants.
Reinfections had 90% lower odds of resulting in hospitalization or death, The New England Journal of Medicine study found.

Patients who survived COVID-19 have such strong natural immunity that their chance of reinfection or serious side effects is minimal, according to a new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

The study conducted by researchers in Qatar reviewed global databases for 353,000 coronavirus patients who were infected between Feb. 28, 2020 and April 28, 2021.

The researchers excluded about 87,500 people who were vaccinated, and found of the remaining population only 1,304 got reinfected, with none requiring ICU hospitalization.

Comment: While the science based on fact tells us that natural immunity is far superior and lasts much longer than vaccination, the psychopathic PTB are forcing a massive vaccination campaign all over the world.

It is obvious that they are not doing that to protect our health.

We should ask ourselves what is the real underlying reason for a global and extremely aggressive vaccination campaign with experimental and dangerous mRNA vaccines?

Hard data shows the COVID vaccines don't work

vaccinated question
The last several months have seen a heated debate about the effectiveness of the vaccines that are being currently administered against Covid-19.

The question on many people's minds is: Do these pharmaceuticals work?

Both sides tend to feel quite strongly about their position which gives rise to a great deal of emotion as the debate goes on.

The good news is that, being nearly a year into the vast vaccination enterprise, we now possess sufficient data to determine whether the shots are effective or not.

As we know, the objective of vaccination is to eliminate or significantly reduce the incidence of the targeted disease. If a vaccine works, then in a highly vaccinated population we will see either complete elimination of the disease or a significant decrease of its incidence.
