Whooping cough outbreak in children declared in Canada

child cough

Pertussis outbreak spans several communities with low childhood immunization rates
Alberta Health Services has declared an outbreak of pertussis — commonly called whooping cough — in parts of southern Alberta.

Pertussis is a bacterial infection that can cause severe coughing that can last for weeks. It's most dangerous to infants, who are at risk of serious complications, including pneumonia, convulsions, brain damage and death.

The outbreak spans the County of Lethbridge, Coaldale, Taber, Vauxhall, Grassy Lake and Bow Island — all communities that have significantly low childhood immunization rates, AHS said.

The health authority says that by age two, children should have received four doses of the pertussis vaccine — but in some of these areas, only a third of two-year-old kids have had the shots.


Comment: How many of those children suffering from pertussis were fully vaccinated against it? That should help confirm whether vaccination is implicated.


Comment: It remains to be seen just what has caused the surge in cases; is it the low vaccination rates that are to blame?Or were the children's immune systems weakened by the extreme, 2-year long lockdowns? Or is there another factor that has yet to come to light?

CDC aware of hundreds of safety signals for COVID jab

In September 2022, The Epoch Times asked the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to release its Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) data mining results. PRR1 measures how common an adverse event is for a specific drug compared to all the other drugs in the database.

According to the standard operating procedures2,3 for the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which is run jointly by the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the CDC is required to perform these data mining analyses.

Not only did the CDC refuse to release the data, but it also provided false information — twice — in response to The Epoch Times' questions about the monitoring being performed. As reported by The Epoch Times back in September 2022,4 the CDC initially claimed PRR analyses were "outside the agency's purview" and that no monitoring was being done by them.

UK deaths 26% higher than pre-pandemic levels - mRNA shots are the leading suspect

doctor vaccine needle


Deaths continue to run at extraordinary levels in England and Wales. In the week ending January 13th 2023 there were 17,381 deaths, which is 2,837 or 19.5% above the five-year average. This is despite the five-year average having risen due to the early 2021 Covid wave.
Compared to the pre-pandemic five-year average of 13,822 it is 3,559 or 25.7% above average.

There were 922 deaths with Covid registered on the death certificate, of which 654 were registered as due to Covid as underlying cause. This leaves 2,183 excess deaths from a different underlying cause. Since the wave of excess non-Covid deaths began in April the total now stands at 34,691.

12 children die from mysterious illness in Ivory Coast

ivory coast
What's going on there? Twelve children have died of a mysterious illness since December in the village of Kpo-Kahankro, in central Côte d'Ivoire. "We recorded six deaths in December 2022, three on Friday January 20, and three more this Thursday, which brings the total number of deaths to twelve", explained Paul Kouassi, the president of a youth association in the village.

"The age of the victims varies between one and eight years," added Paul Kouassi, adding that the children suddenly start to stiffen up and vomit. François Kouakou Guié, a resident of the village who lost his 18-month-old granddaughter on Thursday, asked the authorities to find "the origin of this evil" and that they "put an end to it", confirming the toll of twelve children dead since early December.

Two ministers had moved to this village in December after the first deaths, and some patients had been taken care of at the Bouaké University Hospital. "We don't know what's going on. The government took samples from the first bodies in December and the results are still awaited. After the three deaths on Thursday, patients were again transferred to the Bouaké University Hospital," lamented Paul Kouassi.

Ivermectin efficacy finally proven in 'gold-standard' RCT - Prof Colleen Aldous

ivermectin
Ivermectin and its use as a treatment for COVID-19 was catapulted to centre stage when the pandemic erased all rhyme and reason in 2020. However, even as the totality of evidence demonstrated Ivermectin's efficacy, mainstream media and governments across the world dismissed its use based on the absence of randomised control trials.

Further to that, virtually anything related to Ivermectin that made mainstream media was negative coverage of a drug that could've saved countless lives. Now, at last, a large randomised control study on Ivermectin efficacy for preventing and treating COVID-19 has been released, as discussed in this article by Professor Colleen Aldous, one of the drug's fiercest advocates. Aldous, a geneticist and clinical researcher at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, raises some critical questions that we ignore at our peril. - Nadya Swart

DMT - the potent psychedelic in Ayahuasca - treats depression after a SINGLE dose, cutting-edge clinical trial shows

dmt experience
DMT — the most potent psychedelic known to man — treats people with severe depression after a single dose, a cutting-edge clinical trial suggests.

Up to six in ten who received a single dose of DMT intravenously before therapy were declared depression-free three months later.

And three in 10 participants were declared depression-free two weeks after one session, compared to one in ten in the placebo group who just had therapy on its own.

Blood clots: Choline may increase the risk of an event
Blood clots typically form in the veins of the legs, arms, groin. It is when they break off and travel to other parts of the body, such as the lungs, that they pose a risk. Typically risk factors for blood clotting include surgery, cancer, and pregnancy. The findings from one small study, however, imply that a nutrient found in eggs and meat may also increase the risk of blood clotting.

The study conducted by Cleveland Clinic, suggested that choline could make the blood more prone to clotting.

Choline is sometimes sold in over-the-counter dietary supplements.

It is deemed an essential nutrient that is widely recommended for optimal health.

According to Medical News Today, it supports various bodily functions, including cellular growth and metabolism.

Comment: Yep, nothing to see here. It's obviously not the vaccines!

The link between the massive drop in birth rates and mRNA vaccines is undeniable

Shouldn't the alarm bells be ringing? Why haven't the authorities long since swung into action to assure the public that a full independent public investigation is well underway?

To a critical ear, the silence is as deafening as it is worrying. After 11 months of official reports of a sustained fall in the birth rate, the Swedish mainstream media have reacted. However, news reports omit any reference to a possible involvement of the elephant in the room: mRNA vaccines. So, what is the evidence that we should all have an opportunity to consider?

The number of children born in Sweden has decreased by an average of 8.6% over the period from January to November 2022. The largest percentage decreases occurred over the most recent three months of reporting (September-November 2022). Over this period, 11.7% fewer children were born in Sweden to women aged 18 to 45 years, based on the figure expected from regression analysis of data from the previous 10 years.

Although data are released monthly, comment from official sources is as absent as investigative reporting from the mainstream media. A German Government working paper has noted the correlation between the drop in fertility and birth rate in both Sweden and Germany and the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. However, the paper blamed behaviour change and drew no link with the exposure of women of childbearing age to novel mRNA vaccines.

Fauci knew boosters could cause immune tolerance; pushed for them anyway

Did "the science" have our best interests at heart?

At the Speed of Science

The anti-Covid-vaccine circles are abuzz with posts discussing "IgG4 immune tolerance". It describes mRNA-injected people developing so-called "IgG4 antibodies", which make their immune systems "ignore" Covid infections instead of fighting them vigorously, leading to slow virus clearance, excessive replication of the virus, and "sudden deaths."

Unequivocal safety signals for heart, blood and reproduction found in yellow card vaccine data, says top scientist - "withdraw them immediately"

yellow card
In the U.K., three COVID-19 vaccines - AstraZeneca (AZ), Pfizer (PF) and Moderna (MO) - have been used in a nationwide inoculation programme aimed at preventing harm from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. All three vaccines provide the genetic code that enables vaccinees to produce within their bodies the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the molecule associated with the pathology of COVID-19. In the AZ vaccine the genetic code for the spike protein takes the form of DNA, and is introduced into recipient's cells by a genetically modified chimpanzee virus (DNA, adenovirus vector). For the PF and MO vaccines, the introduced genetic code takes the form of heavily modified RNA, and is carried to recipient's cells within lipid nanoparticles (mRNA, lipid nanoparticle). There is no control over either the tissues to which the vaccines are transported or the length of time for which spike proteins are produced by those tissues.

All three vaccines rely on novel technology that has never before been used in humans. At the time of their introduction, they lacked any long-term safety data, and therefore required Conditional Marketing Authorisation from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). To monitor the safety of the three vaccines the MHRA established the COVID-19 vaccine Yellow Card reporting scheme (C-19VYC). This collates standardised reports of suspected adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccines that can be analysed to detect safety signals and potentially trigger withdrawal of the vaccines. Here we show that a thorough analysis of the C-19YC data indicates unequivocal safety signals for adverse reactions caused by the mRNA vaccines PF and MO affecting the lymph system, the heart and female reproduction.

The strength of the C-19VYC reporting scheme is that it is capable of generating an enormous amount of valuable information about adverse reactions to the experimental COVID-19 vaccines. Reports of suspected adverse reactions can be submitted not only by physicians but also by the recipients of the vaccines themselves, providing valuable feedback to the MHRA based on first-hand experience. This inclusive aspect of the C-19VYC reporting scheme has proved very successful, with nearly half a million adverse event reports submitted, roughly one for every hundred recipients of the COVID-19 vaccines in the U.K.
