Large BCG trials underway after indications that century-old TB vaccine offers an immune boost against Covid-19

There are indications that BCG revaccination might protect against Covid-19. The latest results come from a Greek study published as an as yet un-peer reviewed preprint on medRxiv.

BCG - Bacillus Calmette-Guérin - celebrates its 100th anniversary this summer and remains the only approved vaccine against tuberculosis. Developed by French bacteriologists Albert Calmette and Camille Guérin from a bovine relative of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, it was first given to an infant in a Parisian hospital in July 1921.

It was recognised early on that BCG vaccination appeared to reduce death from diseases beyond just tuberculosis. Immunologists have long suspected that this live vaccine primes the immune system to better fight infection. Last year, it was hypothesised that BCG vaccination may protect against Covid-19.

Comment: It appears that the studies fail to acknowledge the critical point that, for the vast majority, no vaccine at all is required, because Covid-19 is a relatively harmless virus.

However, it's worth noting that this further highlights that there are drugs and vaccines with an established safety and efficacy record available to mitigate the effects of Covid-19, but, for some reason, the establishment have intentionally blocked their usage; instead opting for highly experimental and 'novel' drugs and practices (such as mRNA vaccines, masks, lockdowns, and social distancing) that appear to be not only making the virus more virulent but are leading to a surge in serious side effects and death: Also check out SOTT radio's:

Prof Sir Peter Horby, joint chief investigator for the Recovery trial, which has found a third drug that tackles coronavirus itself rather than the resulting inflammation.
Oxford University trial reports cocktail of manmade antibodies reduces fatalities by a fifth.

A new drug has been found to cut Covid deaths by a fifth among the sickest patients in hospital and may change official practice so that every patient with coronavirus will have an antibody test before they are admitted.

The Recovery trial based at Oxford University has found a third drug that can help Covid patients recover in hospital - but this one is the first to tackle the virus itself, rather than the inflammation that develops in the later stages of the disease.

Comment: So that's two Trump-associated treatments that were ridiculed in the media even though they work. It's almost as if the media simply dismissed the treatments due to their association with Trump and not based on the merits of the drugs themselves.

Drug was only 33% effective at preventing symptomatic disease

AstraZeneca Plc's antibody cocktail was only 33% effective at preventing Covid-19 symptoms in people who had been exposed to the virus, failing a study that was key to the drugmaker's pandemic push.

The trial of 1,121 adult volunteers looked at whether the long-acting antibody combination could protect people who had recently been in contact with the SARS-CoV-2 virus in places like care homes. The company said it's running other studies of the medicine that could help clarify the findings.

The outcome is a blow to Astra for a drug that was hoped to be a bright spot in the company's pandemic efforts following the mixed success of its vaccine with the University of Oxford. Other drugmakers such as GlaxoSmithKline Plc have had some success in getting similar therapies through clinical tests and approved for people who are at risk of severe disease or can't get vaccinated.

The study, conducted in the U.S. and U.K., showed 23 volunteers who got the AZD7442 cocktail developed symptomatic Covid-19 following exposure to the disease, compared with 17 cases in the placebo group. Twice as many participants got the antibody, but the difference between the two groups wasn't considered statistically significant. The cocktail was well tolerated by participants.

Gosiame Thamara Sithole, pictured here a month ago, gave birth on Monday
A South African woman has reportedly given birth to 10 babies in what would be a new world record.

Gosiame Thamara Sithole's husband says they were astonished by decuplets after scans only showed eight in the womb.
"It's seven boys and three girls. I am happy. I am emotional. I can't talk much," her husband Teboho Tsotetsi told Pretoria News after the birth.
One South African official confirmed the births to the BBC, however another said they were yet to see the babies.

A family member, who did not want to be identified, told the BBC that Ms Sithole had had 10 babies - five via natural birth and 5 via caesarean section.

Guinness World Records told the BBC it was investigating Ms Sithole's case.

A woman who had eight babies in the US in 2009 currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most children delivered at a single birth to survive.

Trump was right about hydroxychloroquine all along: New study shows drug touted by former president can increase COVID survival rates by 200%

hcq hydroxychloroquine

A new study, published on the medical site medRxiv on May 31, suggests that severely-ill patients on a ventilator could be helped in their COVID-19 battle by a high dose of hydroxychloroquine (above) and zinc - as promoted by Donald Trump.
A malaria drug which Donald Trump was condemned for hailing as a possible COVID-19 treatment can increase survival rates by up to 200 per cent, scientists say.

Scientists found that, when ventilated patients with a severe version of COVID were given high doses of hydroxychloroquine with zinc, their survival rates could increase dramatically.

Trump said in March 2020 he was taking it to prevent him catching the virus, rather than treat it. He did not become infected until October, and was not treated with the drug.

Comment: And social media are still censoring information about HCQ.

Objective:Health - The Big Revelations in the Fauci Emails

O:H header
You'd have to have been living under a rock to not have heard about the infamous Fauci emails that have been allover the news cycle for the last few weeks. While many in the media refer to them as "leaks", they were actually obtained by BuzzFeed and the Washington Post, as well as the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), who filed freedom of information requests to receive internal government correspondence from Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the beginning of the Covid-19 debacle.

What the emails have revealed is what we in the alternative media have been saying since the beginning - Fauci has been talking out of both sides of his mouth, saying one thing in private correspondence while telling the nation, and indeed the world, something entirely different.

Overall, Fauci was told about the credible theory that Covid was leaked from a lab, having telltale signs of being an engineered virus early in the Covid circus, despite vehemently denying the possibility in public and actively worked within his organization to downplay the lab leak theory and promote the evolutionary origin teory. He was also well aware that masks were essentially useless for stopping viral spread.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we delve into this and more. What has been revealed in the Fauci emails?

Rosemary Frei: HIV Now Sets the Pace in the Bogus-vaxx Race


This month marks the 40th anniversary of the first report of what was subsequently dubbed 'acquired immunodeficiency syndrome' or 'AIDS.'

Officials like Anthony Fauci are using the occasion to spread the message that vaccines for HIV, which is the virus said to cause AIDS, will soon be rolling out. Forty years of fruitless effort supposedly are suddenly successful thanks to the precedent of the lightening-speed and 'successful' development of Covid vaccines.

Fauci said June 4 in an MSNBC interview by Rachel Maddow that because of "the technologies that have now been perfected, particularly the mRNA technology and other vaccine platforms that were perfected and used in Covid-19, I believe strongly we'll go back and be able to really forward and advance the HIV [vaccine] effort."

Gambling with the lives of children to protect adults

dr peter mccullough
Never in modern medicine have we ever considered mass vaccination of children with an investigational biologic product with no proven efficacy or safety. Fortunately, studies demonstrated that children could not asymptomatically spread the virus. SARS-CoV-2 causes a very mild upper respiratory tract infection in children, and last year, more children died of influenza than COVID-19.

Now the issue of vaccination has been brought forward for children with limited studies demonstrating COVID-19 antibodies after vaccination. These registrational studies for the mRNA vaccines demonstrated no clinical benefit. Conversely, data from the VAERS system demonstrates that more children will be harmed with the mRNA vaccines than will benefit from immunization against SARS-CoV-2.

In the end, it appears that the vaccine stakeholders: Pfizer, Moderna, JNJ, NIH, CDC, FDA, those entities that stand to benefit from a "needle-in-every-arm" want children to become vaccinated not for the benefit of the children, but for the perceived protection of others.

The killer in the bloodstream: the "spike protein"

death on a horse
"From the beginning Covid has been a conspiracy against health and life. Covid is a profit-making agenda and an agenda for increasing arbitrary government power over people. There should be massive law suits and massive arrests of those who block effective Covid cures and impose a deadly vaccine."

Paul Craig Roberts, Former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Ronald Reagan
The Spike Protein is a "uniquely dangerous" transmembrane fusion protein that is an integral part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. "The S protein plays a crucial role in penetrating host cells and initiating infection." It also damages the cells in the lining of the blood vessel walls which leads to blood clots, bleeding, massive inflammation and death.

To say that the spike protein is merely "dangerous", is a vast understatement. It is a potentially-lethal pathogen that has already killed tens of thousands of people.

So, why did the vaccine manufacturers settle on the spike protein as an antigen that would induce an immune response in the body?

That's the million-dollar question, after all, for all practical purposes, the spike protein is a poison. We know that now due to research that was conducted at the Salk Institute. Here's a summary of what they found:

Rare motor neurone disease linked to frequent 'vigorous exercise' according to UK study

people jogging

The authors said it was 'important to stress' that 'most people who undertake vigorous exercise do not develop MND'
Frequent strenuous exercise increases the risk of developing motor neurone disease (MND) for those genetically predisposed to the illness, according to new research.

The findings, published in the journal EBioMedicine, "show a causal relationship between exercise and MND, with high-intensity physical activity likely to contribute to motor neurone injury, but only in individuals with a predisposing genetic profile," said the study by a team at the University of Sheffield.

High-profile sportsmen to have developed MND include Scotland rugby international Doddie Weir, soccer player Stephen Darby and late South African Rugby World Cup winner Joost van der Westhuizen.

"We have suspected for some time that exercise was a risk factor for MND, but until now this link was considered controversial," said Johnathan Cooper-Knock of the University of Sheffield.
