Covid vaccines give zero protection against death, ONS data suggest

covid-19 vaccine
The latest ONS data on deaths by vaccination status show that of the 5,678 Covid deaths in April and May, 93% or 5,276 were of vaccinated people. Given that the Government's Coronavirus Dashboard reports that 93% of the over-12 population had a first dose of the vaccine, 87% had a second dose and 70% had a third dose, these real-world data suggest that the vaccinated did no better than the unvaccinated in being protected against death.

Breaking this down by age does not improve the outlook. In the 50-59 age cohort, in April 86% and in May 87% of the deaths were of vaccinated people, compared to 87% of the cohort vaccinated with at least one dose. In the 60-69 cohort, in April 88% and in May 91% of the deaths were of vaccinated people, compared to 91% of the cohort. In the 70-79 cohort, in April 94% and in May 90% of the deaths were of vaccinated people, compared to 92% of the cohort. In the 80-plus cohort, in April and May 94% of the deaths were of vaccinated people, compared to 94% of the cohort. Note that ONS's definition of a Covid death includes deaths where Covid is mentioned anywhere on the death certificate, not necessarily as the underlying cause.

Many readers will be familiar with the ongoing debate about vaccination statistics and the size of the unvaccinated population. We know how many people have been vaccinated with the first, second, third and fourth doses of vaccine but we don't know what the population of the U.K. is so we can't know exactly what percentage of the population the vaccinated represent. However, we can have a pretty good guess. Figure 1 is taken from the Covid dashboard and shows that just over 90% of the population had a first dose, just under 90% had a second dose and just under 70% had a third dose.

A health worker administers a dose of a Moderna COVID-19 vaccine during a vaccination clinic in Norristown, Pa. on Dec. 7, 2021.
More than two years after Operation Warp Speed began, Children's Health Defense (CHD) commissioned John Zogby Strategies to conduct two surveys (see here and here) about attitudes and the overall health of American adults.

Key highlights from the survey of 1,038 adults

The survey found that 67% of respondents received one or more COVID-19 vaccines, while 33% are unvaccinated. Furthermore, among those vaccinated, 6% received one dose, 28% received two doses, 21% received three doses, and 12% took four or more.

Of those receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, 15% say they've been diagnosed by a medical practitioner with a new condition within a matter of weeks to several months after taking the vaccine.

The Monkeypox Puzzle

Monkey Pox Puzzle
It was inevitable that the World Health Organisation (WHO) would up the pandemic ante regarding monkeypox. All the signs were there such as the possibility of more dangerous variants, airborne spread and asymptomatic spread; mandatory isolation for cases, and those old chestnuts: test and trace and mass vaccination. It is reported that any reluctance on behalf of the WHO members to declare a Public Health Emergency of International Concern over monkeypox was overruled by Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

So, what are the facts to date regarding monkeypox? The latest estimate from the WHO is that there are now around 15,000 cases of monkeypox across the globe, a mere 0.0001% of the world population (one in a million) and a grand total of five deaths. If these deaths were evenly spread across the globe, then the case fatality rate would be 0.03% (three in 10,000). Since these are estimates and with such a disparity between cases and deaths this is also a reasonable estimate of the infection fatality rate which is the risk an individual infected person has of dying of the infection. To reiterate, the present figures indicate that you have a one in a million chance of being infected with monkeypox and if you are infected you have a three in 10,000 chance of dying.

Objective:Health - Is No-Virus Theory a Psy-Op?

O:H header
Once in awhile, conspiracy theorists tend to go off the rails and start going down labyrinthine rabbit holes that lead nowhere. The no-virus theory seems to be the latest of these, especially as it relates to Covid. We did a show on this back in March of 2021 and, despite our thinking it was a flash in the pan, it seems to be popping up a lot lately. Many people in the alternative realm seem to be more receptive than ever and are more than happy to smear those who refute it (including Dr. Robert Malone).

As with many off-the-rails conspiracy theories, one can easily get caught up in the minutiae. But what is lacking in the no-virus theory is a coherent explanation for what we all see daily and has been studied extensively in complex field of study.

Do virologists get everything right? Of course not, and you'd be unlikely to find one who said otherwise. But does that mean an entire field of science is bunk? Should we throw away hundreds of years of research in order to refute the idea that disease can be spread by through infectious agents like viruses? If we assume that viruses don't exist and all the research ever done about them is nonsense, we will never find out what's going on (which may be the whole point of spreading the no-virus theory among critical researchers).

Join us for this episode of Objective:Health as we go toe-to-toe with the latest mind-virus to be infecting the fringe: no-virus theory.

Mysterious hepatitis outbreak in children linked to adeno-associated virus - adenovirus is used as a vector in a number of Covid vaccines

child hepatitis outbreak
Covid itself is not to blame for the mysterious hepatitis outbreak affecting children across the world, researchers insisted today.


Comment: Who thought Covid was to blame? Covid has been around for well over 2 years now (it has been discovered to have begun circulating since late 2019) and these hepatitis cases only began at the beginning of this year.


However, pandemic-era lockdowns may have played a role.


Comment: Indeed, they played a role, but these cases have been identified in particular regions of the world, but not in others, meaning that it's likely there's another, more significant aggravating factor.


Scientists today pinpointed a usually-harmless virus as being the main culprit for the unusual liver illness, which has sickened 200 youngsters in the UK and left a dozen needing transplants.


Comment: And that's just in the UK.


Two separate studies concluded that adeno-associated virus 2 (AAV2) seems to play a 'significant role'.

Comment: Adenovirus is used in a number of the Covid vaccines, and even the BMJ recently published a letter proposing the possibility of a link:
A substantial proportion of the population in the UK has received Vaxzevria which is an adenovirus vector vaccine from AstraZeneca developed by the Jenner Institute in Oxford [2]. The chimpanzee viral vector was selected due to the low herd immunity in the human population and originates from an adenovirus purified from the faeces of chimpanzee cubs [3]. The vector is genetically modified so that it cannot multiply, and genes of interest can be added. In Vaxzervria, the DNA sequence expressing the spike protein from the original Wuhan SARS-CoV-2 virus has been inserted [4]. Could the adenovirus vector vaccine have contributed to a new recombinant virus? Even if the virus vector does not multiply there is an obvious risk exposing such a large number of individuals that recombination with an adenovirus could occur.

Research by UK gov't finds air pollution a likely cause of dementia in elderly people

Air pollution is a likely cause of dementia and overall cognitive decline in elderly people, major new research carried out on behalf of the UK government and released on Monday suggests.

The Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) came to its conclusion after examining almost 70 studies in human populations, which were looking for links between air pollution and diminished mental abilities.

"It is likely that air pollution can contribute to a decline in mental ability and dementia in older people," the report says.

Researchers believe that the most likely way this happens is through blood circulation. "It is known that air pollutants, particularly small particles, can affect the heart and blood vessels, including to the brain," the study reads.

China approves Genuine Biotech's HIV drug to treat pneumonia in Covid patients as part of relaxing its 'zero covid' policy

People get tested for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at a mobile nucleic acid testing site outside a shopping mall in Beijing, China March 16, 2022.
China on Monday gave conditional approval to domestic firm Genuine Biotech's Azvudine pill to treat certain adult patients with COVID-19, adding another oral treatment option against the coronavirus.

The availability of effective COVID vaccines and treatments is crucial in laying the groundwork for China's potential pivoting from its "dynamic COVID zero" policy, which aims to eliminate every outbreak - however small - and relies on mass testing and strict quarantining.

The Azvudine tablet, which China approved in July last year to treat certain HIV-1 virus infections, has been given a conditional green light to treat adult patients with "normal type" COVID, the National Medical Products Administration said in a statement.

COVID jabs impacting male and female fertility?

Infertility
The first COVID shots rolled out in December 2020, and it didn't take long before doctors and scientists started warning of possible reproductive effects.

Among them were Janci Chunn Lindsay, Ph.D., director of toxicology and molecular biology for Toxicology Support Services LLC, who in April 2021 submitted a public comment1 to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), highlighting the high potential for adverse effects on fertility.


I previously interviewed Lindsay in 2021. That article is not updated with the new information, but the interview (above) is a good primer for the information she shares below. In many ways, she predicted what we are now observing.

Pfizer mRNA vaccine goes into liver and changes into DNA, Swedish study finds

The research was conducted at Lund University.

A new Swedish study published in MDPI found that the Pfizer vaccine goes into liver cells and converts to DNA, challenging claims so far that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA in any way.

It's the first time that researchers have shown in vitro - or inside a petri dish - how an mRNA vaccine is converted into DNA on a human liver cell line, the Epoch Times reported.

It's precisely what health experts and fact-checkers said for more than a year could not occur.

Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist and epidemiologist who is one of the leading critics of the COVID vaccines, said the findings have "enormous implications of permanent chromosomal change" that could drive a "whole new genre of chronic disease."

Comment: As slowly facts are established from legitimate research, the importance of 10-year+ studies before subjecting the public to new vaccine protocol is obvious. But that wasn't the plan, the timeframe nor the desired outcome.

Icelandic Study: Less than 0.06% of children experience severe Covid symptoms

rekjavic iceland
Since the early days of the pandemic, evidence has consistently shown that Covid poses almost no risk to children. A major British study from last year estimated the survival rate for under 18s as 99.995%, and found that three quarters of under 18s who died from Covid had a serious underlying health condition.

Deaths are (relatively) easy to count. But what about severe symptoms that don't result in death - how many children experience those? A new Icelandic study provides the answer.

The study, authored by Valtyr Thors and colleagues, has one key advantage over previous studies: thanks to Iceland's small population and comprehensive record-keeping, the authors were able to identify all children infected with Covid up to August 31st 2021 (or very nearly all).
