'I hope that, like during the omicron wave, we can get through this without special restrictions,' says Ash.
Israel's Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash warned Sunday that the country is at the start of a new wave of Covid infections.

This comes after over 7,000 new infections were recorded on Friday.
"We're careful with terminology because we had something like this a month or so ago - there was an increase, and it went down very quickly. This time is actually different, and there is a new variant, the BA.5 [variant], which is more contagious," Prof. Nachman Ash told radio 103FM on Sunday morning.

"I think that it's possible to start calling this a new wave," he added. "I hope that, like during the omicron wave, we can get through this without special restrictions."

Comment: How can there be a new variant of Covid in Israel when Israel is one of the most vaccinated nations in the world against Covid.

It looks like the mRNA vaccines are not just inefficient against the the virus but also they are the source of the new virus mutations.

But, it's okay, the government will handle this for you too. Just put your masks on, take the booster dose for this variant and continue to live the "idyllic" world that your government prepared for you. It is for your own good.

Early COVID treatment works - yet more examples

Two independent Italian teams validate earlier reports

There are many paradoxes in the COVID-19 data from the western nations concerning disease and death attributed to SARS-CoV-2 infection. One of the most problematic is the result of widespread systemic reporting bias, in which disease and deaths WITH evidence of infection are grossly over-reported as disease and deaths FROM infection by SARS-CoV-2. The truth is that we may never be able to resolve this, to get to the bottom of what really went on, due to perverse political and financial incentives to over-report COVID-19 deaths (while also minimizing toxicity of the vaccines). But there is no question that if you are admitted to a western hospital with a COVID-19 diagnosis, your risk of death during that hospitalization has been amazingly high.

Ignore the misinformation: Omicron infection does give natural immunity

© Unknown
Depressing reports appeared this week claiming that, to quote the Telegraph headline, "Catching Omicron 'does not protect you against future infection'".

The claim is said to come from a new study from Imperial College which analysed immune system responses (note: not actual reinfection rates) in vaccinated healthcare workers with varying infection histories. Note that all the participants were triple-vaccinated, so no comparison is made with the unvaccinated.

Professor Danny Altmann, from Imperial's Department of Immunology, was downbeat in his assessment of the findings.
The message is a little bleak. Omicron and its variants are great at breakthrough, but bad at inducing immunity, thus we get reinfections ad nauseam, and a badly depleted workforce. Not only can it break through vaccine defences, it looks to leave very few of the hallmarks we'd expect on the immune system - it's more stealthy than previous variants and flies under the radar, so the immune system is unable to remember it.
According to the Telegraph report, Omicron infection does "virtually nothing against Omicron itself". They found that in people who were triple vaccinated and had no prior infection, an Omicron infection provided an immune boost against previous variants such as Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and the original ancestral strain, but virtually nothing against Omicron itself.

People infected during the first wave of the pandemic and then again with Omicron also lacked any immune boosting, an effect the researchers have termed "hybrid immune damping".


Fauci admits 'not enough data' to show recommended boosters for 5-year-olds work

Dr. Anthony Fauci was questioned by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., during a Senate committee hearing Thursday, June 16, 2022.
Fauci and Sen. Rand Paul had yet another contentious exchange at a Senate hearing.

Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted Thursday that even though the Biden administration recommends that everyone over the age of 5 gets a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, there is currently insufficient evidence to prove that the boosters actually lower rates of hospitalization or death in children.

During a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., asked Fauci if he was aware of any studies that showed a reduction in deaths or hospitalizations for children who had received boosters.

Vaccine booster effectiveness drops to zero within six months but natural immunity endures more than a year, study finds

© REUTERS/Dado Ruvic
Vaccine effectiveness against Omicron drops to zero within six months but natural immunity remains robust for at least a year, a new study from Qatar has found.

The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, looked at all symptomatic PCR-positive Covid infections in Qatar during the Omicron wave from December 23rd 2021 to February 21st 2022. As can be seen in the chart below, it found that protection from natural immunity (the blue dots on the left) endured at a level of around 50% for at least a year, meaning the infection rate in the previously infected was half that in those not previously infected. However, two vaccine doses of either Pfizer or Moderna (light green dots in middle) dropped to zero effectiveness or below within six months. A third dose (dark green dots on right) appeared to restore some protection in the short term, but it was dropping fast even during the short follow-up period. The authors, aware of the short follow-up time, explain that "most persons received their third dose less than 45 days earlier, perhaps explaining the relatively high effectiveness".


Re-evaluation of Pfizer Trial Data Shows Zero Efficacy, Say Experts

The expert group HART (Health Advisory and Recovery Team) has delved into the Pfizer trial documents released following a U.S. court order and discovered that according to Pfizer's own antibody data the vaccine efficacy in the trial was massively overstated and appears to be as low as zero.

While the official results found only eight PCR-positive 'cases' in the vaccine arm, Pfizer's antibody testing shows that in fact 75 people in the vaccinated arm seroconverted (developed N-type antibodies), implying there were actually 75 'cases' of Covid in the vaccinated, not just eight.

By itself that would cut efficacy in half. However, HART points out that it's been shown with the Moderna mRNA vaccine that only around 40% of the vaccinated who go on to have a symptomatic PCR-positive Covid 'breakthrough' infection develop N-type antibodies, owing to immune imprinting ('original antigenic sin') by the vaccine to favour S-type antibodies (which target the spike protein). Assuming this also applies to the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, this means the 75 seropositive individuals are only around 40% of the total number who had Covid, giving an estimated total of 188 Covid 'cases' in the vaccine arm - more than the 165 in the unvaccinated arm, implying zero vaccine efficacy or worse.

Comment: If we add the terrible side effects such as myocarditis, pericarditis and blood clots from the vaccination to this zero efficiency, then we can see that the massive vaccination program around the world injured and killed far more people than the virus itself. At the same time they were lying to people by promising a high efficiency and protection against the infection.

Now we can ask ourselves about the real goal of the Covid mRNA vaccine and the PTB panic to vaccinate as much people as possible.
Is there any hidden agenda behind all this that we are not aware of?

Children suffering multiple viral infections at once, experts think lockdowns compromised immunity

flu infection 2022

The influenza virus normally peters out in the warmer months (see red line, from 2019). In 2019, infections peaked in the 10th week of the year, in March. But this year (blue line), it has remained constant and not gone away, to the consternation of scientists
Children are turning up in doctors' clinics infected with as many as three different types of viruses, in what experts believe is the result of their immune systems being weakened from two years of COVID lockdowns and mask-wearing.

Medical staff have come to expect a surge in cases of flu and severe colds during the winter.

But they are reporting that there is not the usual downturn as summer approaches - and they suspect it could be due to the strict pandemic practices.

Furthermore, some of common strains of the flu appear to have disappeared, flummoxing scientists.

The sole purpose of the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA shots in kids is to eliminate the control group. There are no health benefits, only harms

© FX Empire/AFP/KJN
The FDA is willing to sacrifice the health of 19 million little kids to cover up the evidence of a crime

On Friday, the FDA released its risk benefit assessment of Moderna's Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) application to inject mRNA into kids 0 to 17 years old. I've been reading it for the past two days and here are the things that stood out to me:

I. Introduction, a shell game to hide the bad data

The risk benefit document for Moderna is 190 pages single-spaced. It was released two business days before the June 14-15 VRBPAC meeting. A similar risk benefit assessment for Pfizer's EUA application for kids under 5 will be released tomorrow (just 24 hours before the meeting). This guarantees that NONE of the members of the VRBPAC will have read either of these documents prior to the meetingwhich is exactly what the cartel wants.

One of the ways that Moderna and the FDA rig the game is by adding endless layers of complexity to hide how bad the data really is. This should have been four separate documents — Moderna in adolescents 12 to 17, Moderna in kids 6 to 11, Moderna in kids 2 to 5, and Moderna in kids 6 months to 23 months. Looked at individually, the shot fails in each of these four age groups. But by lumping them together it creates noise that makes it difficult to understand what's going on.

Another really pernicious thing that Moderna does is to further subdivide these populations into eight different subpopulations (Randomization Set, Full Analysis Set, Immunogenicity Subset, Per-protocol Immunogenicity Subset, Per-protocol Set for Efficacy, Modified Intent-to-treat Set, MITT1 Set, Safety Set, Solicited Safety Set).

See what they did there? The public just wants to know — does the product work and what are the side effects? By dividing the data into eight subcategories involving four different age groups now you have to wade through 32 different tables to try to make sense of what happened in the clinical trial.


High Covid Vaccine Deaths Not Due to Over-Reporting, Data Suggest

mRNA Covid Vaccine
OpenVAERS, the site which makes data from the U.S. vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS) accessible, has added a new feature which neatly illustrates that the high number of reported fatalities from the Covid vaccines is unlikely to be due to an unusually high reporting rate in 2021 and 2022.

The new feature allows you quickly to compare deaths reported for Covid vaccines and other vaccines by turning on and off the data for each. This allows you to see that the reports for other vaccines remain at a normal (relatively low) level, whereas the reports for Covid vaccines are many times higher - 41 times higher than for other vaccines in 2021 and 29 times higher in 2022 so far (up to June 3rd). This is an indication that suspected Covid vaccine deaths are not being reported at an unusually high rate owing to increased propensity to report in 2021 and 2022 compared to previous years.

Funding of promising research into COVID-19 treatment withdrawn without explanation

In 2020 a cell culture lab-study performed by a group of Icelandic scientists led by Dr. Einar Stefánsson, Professor of Medicine at the University of Iceland, showed that free fatty acids found in fish liver oil can quickly destroy viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19. The study was conducted in collaboration with U.S. partners. Laboratory results showed fish liver oil with 1% and 2% free fatty agents destroyed 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 within 10 minutes.

According to an article in Viðskiptablaðið in November 2020, the research, in collaboration with fish liver oil producer Lýsi hf. had been approved by the Scientific Ethics Committee and the first phase of the study was being planned with the participation of 30 infected individuals. Icelandic daily Fréttin recently contacted Professor Stefánsson for news of the project, but he said the research project had to be discontinued due to lack of funds.

According to Dr. Stefánsson, the Icelandic Centre for Research, RANNÍS, had approved a "substantial grant" to finance the study, but later the grant was withdrawn without explanation. He said there did not seem to be enough support from the scientific community for a study on the benefits of fish liver oil against viral infections, so unfortunately the project had to be cancelled.

Comment: Another promising treatment/solution revoked and blacklisted.
