It would give the prime minister exceptional powers to restrict access to public transport and other public spaces for people who cannot present a negative test result, or proof of vaccination or treatment, for an infectious disease.But after a day of controversy around the plans, French Health Minister Olivier Véran went on the evening news Tuesday to defuse the controversy and postpone the bill."Because there needs to be trust for the French people to go and get vaccinated of their own free will, because we’re still in a state of sanitary crisis … the government won’t present the text [to the National Assembly] for several months, before we’re out of the crisis," Véran told TF1.The bill was poorly received in one of the most vaccine-hesitant countries in the world. Opposition figures from across the political spectrum — and from both pro-vaccine and vaccine-skeptic camps — riled against a plan that conservative MP Fabien Di Filippo said amounted to "vaccine blackmail."There were also concerns it could add fuel to the anti-vaccine movement just days before the start of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign in France and across Europe. It was originally slated to be debated by the National Assembly in January.The government, in its impact study released Monday, said the measures around vaccination were not "meant to impose mandatory vaccination against COVID-19" but could be needed for a future pandemic.However, nothing in the bill itself specifies this nuance.(3) Singapore Airlines Launches COVID-19 "Digital Health Passport"'New Normal' Arrives - Singapore Airlines Launches COVID-19 "Digital Health Passport" For PassengersBY TYLER DURDENSATURDAY, DEC 26, 2020 - 8:45As the world stumbles into 2021 in a matter of days, life, as we know it, will never be normal again, referring to good ole' days of the pre-pandemic.For months, readers may have heard us discuss "COVID passports," "immunity passports," or at least speak on the subject of those who don't get tested for COVID-19 or vaccinated will face travel restrictions.Well, from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact, Singapore Airlines this week is the first major carrier to introduce a digital health certificate to verify passengers' testing history and vaccination status.On Dec. 23, the new digital health verification process was rolled out for passengers traveling on flights operated by the carrier from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, according to a Singapore Airlines press release.The airline explains passengers will take COVID-19 tests at local clinics in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur and be issued "digital or paper health certificates with a QR code." These forms of immunity passes will be checked by airport security and Singapore's immigration authority."This is a faster and more secure way to validate a passenger's health credentials than the existing protocols, speeding up both the airport check-in process and the immigration entry process into Singapore. It would make it easier for SIA customers to control their information, reduce friction during their travel journey, and result in a more seamless experience with the aid of digital technologies in the new normal," the airline said.JoAnn Tan, Acting Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Singapore Airlines, said the rollout of immunity passports "will be an integral part of air travel for the foreseeable future."In October, passengers flying from London's Heathrow Airport to Newark on a United Airlines flight were part of a pilot program to test passengers for the virus.Just weeks ago, Lance Gokongwei, President and CEO of Cebu Pacific, the Philippines' largest budget airline, announced health passports would be "essential" for travel.In the April and May timeframe,  the mayor of the French city of Nice and Bill Gates were among the most prominent voices discussing health passports.Even after the virus pandemic ends, these health passports will be sticking around could offer evidence that a traveler has been vaccinated - not just for COVID-19, but any other disease.This is just another example of elites tightening their control and surveillance on the masses.(4) Vaccine 'will make it possible to identify everyone and their physical location'From: cg <>Subject: The Vaccine is 100% effectiveIf, after getting an officially approved vaccine (not the old fashioned Russian Sputnik 5), you die, your cause of death will not be "Covid" or  "adverse reaction to mRna vaccine." The cause of death will officially be listed as "flu" or "something you ate." The official Vaccines approved by Dr Fauci have nothing whatsoever to do with Covid and were being prepared a long time ago, obviously, as long ago as Covid itself was being prepared in biowarfare labs under contract to the CDC. I remember Hillary Clinton answered some objections to aspects of her presidential platform by saying "it was not going to be like the island of Dr Moreau." Or was that the "Island of Dr Fauci." I get confused.No. "Transhumanism is the next stage of human development. Transhumanism is a philosophical movement that advocates for the transformation of the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies able to greatly modify or enhance human intellect and physiology.Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations as well as the ethical limitations of using such technologies." (Wikipedia). There was already a US Transhumanist presidential candidate named Zoltan Istvan. He looked like Emmanuel Macron. Perhaps they came out of the same test tube.So. Transhumanism is a corollary to the Kalergi program of race abolition. You know, "the Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi  Plan (Italian: Piano Kalergi). In far-right, anti-semitic, white nationalist conspiracy theory it is called the Kalergi Conspiracy or a plot to mix white Europeans with other races via immigration. It was simply a plan for world peace constructed by Austrian-Japanese politician Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi and was promoted in aristocratic European social circles. The conspiracy libel is most often associated with European groups and parties, but it has also spread to North American politics." (Wikipedia)Besides, the Vaccine will be a great tool in the War on Terror making it possible to identify everyone and their physical location at any time, even without your smartphone, which, after all, you could attach to some animal to mislead law enforcement, like in Total Recall. So, getting vaccinated may be a small step for you, but it will be a great step for mankind, like  Also, the nano particles can be used by 5G to make you happy when you are sad. It is a sustainable Win-Win for us, the animals, and the extra-terrestrials that have recently revealed their presence through radio transmissions from outer space.

We sued the FDA for its interference with the right of physicians to prescribe early treatment.  We stood up against tyrannical state regulators.Our Executive Director Jane Orient, M.D., courageously testified before the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee earlier this month, in defense of medical freedom.  Despite telling the truth, Jane was immediately victimized by a demand for retaliation against her and fellow witnesses in the New York Times.In 2020 we helped win multiple victories in court for independent physicians.  But we can keep going only with your support.Our Limited Legal Consultation Service remains as busy as ever as we go into the new year of 2021.  This past year we helped many AAPS members, including defending one against perhaps the worst sham peer review that we have ever seen.  No other medical organization defends physicians as AAPS does.The AMA and other medical organizations side against the right of physicians to provide early treatment by hydroxychloroquine to victims of COVID-19, while medical boards harass good physicians who speak out for what is best for patients.  We fight back for you and your patients.The Washington Post reported that our lawsuit against the FDA prevented it from returning to foreign companies the federal stockpile of more than 60 million doses of HCQ, which the FDA withholds from patients and physicians.Tyranny often creeps in under the guise of so-called "public health." AAPS is needed more than ever to protect medical freedom against Leftists who "never let a crisis go to waste."With your tax-deductible donation now in 2020, we can make even more progress in advancing medical freedom in 2021.  By supporting our tax-deductible arm, the American Health Legal Foundation, you help us save private medicine.  Please be as generous as you can!(6) Jane Orient warns against mandatory vaccines - NYT Doctor Has Been Invited to Testify Before Senate CommitteeThe selection of Dr. Jane M. Orient as federal health officials are trying to promote a vaccine to end the coronavirus pandemic prompted harsh criticism from Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York.By Sheryl Gay StolbergDec. 6, 2020WASHINGTON — A doctor who is skeptical of coronavirus vaccines and promotes the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a Covid-19 treatment will be the lead witness at a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on Tuesday, prompting criticism from Democrats who say Republicans should not give a platform to someone who spreads conspiracy theories.Dr. Jane M. Orient is the executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a group that opposes government involvement in medicine and views federal vaccine mandates as a violation of human rights."A public health threat is the rationale for the policy on mandatory vaccines. But how much of a threat is required to justify forcing people to accept government-imposed risks?" Dr. Orient wrote in a statement to the Senate last year, calling vaccine mandates "a serious intrusion into individual liberty, autonomy and parental decisions."In a phone interview on Sunday, Dr. Orient, an internist who received her medical degree from Columbia University in New York, resisted being cast as an "anti-vaxxer" and said she would not get a coronavirus vaccine because she had an autoimmune condition. She added that she opposed the government’s push for all Americans to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, noting that both vaccine candidates — one made by the Pfizer and the other by Moderna — use a new scientific method."It seems to me reckless to be pushing people to take risks when you don’t know what the risks are," Dr. Orient said, adding: "People’s rights should be respected. Where is ‘my body, my choice’ when it comes to this?"Her selection as a witness as federal health officials are trying to promote a vaccine as a way to end a pandemic that has killed more than 281,000 Americans prompted harsh criticism from Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York and the minority leader."At such a crucial time, giving a platform to conspiracy theorists to spread myths and falsehoods about Covid vaccines is downright dangerous and one of the last things Senate Republicans should be doing right now," Mr. Schumer said in a statement on Sunday. ...Dr. Orient also took aim at Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease specialist, asking, "Why is he dictating care for 340 million Americans?"(7) Sceptic site calls Dr. Jane Orient a "right-wing science denier" THE ORIGINAL SKEPTICAL RAPTORRight-wing science denier Dr. Jane Orient testified to Senate about COVID-19 vaccinesShe’s baaaaaack. The obnoxious, science-denying, far-right, anti-vaccine, vile Dr. Jane Orient was called to testify before the United Stated States regarding COVID-19 vaccines. Predictably, pro-science Senators (Democrats, mostly) were not amused that she testified about the vaccine. ...Furthermore, Dr. Jane Orient and the AAPS also repeat just about every anti-vaccine trope about Gardasil, and they obviously oppose the use of Gardasil.This is an awful group. I’m pretty sure I would never ever respect the opinion of any AAPS member. It’s simply too much for my rational mind.But they have become even more crackpot during the COVID-19 pandemic.After the FDA reversed its emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 because it wasn’t effective. A mere four days after the FDA decision, AAPS claimed that the drug has "about a 90% chance of helping COVID-19 patients." There is just no reliable published evidence that supported that claim. It is ineffective, despite the disinformation from Donald Trump and the AAPS. ...(8) CNN calls Dr Jane Orient "discredited vaccine critic" invite discredited vaccine critic to testify before Senate panelBy Alex Rogers, CNNUpdated 2243 GMT (0643 HKT) December 7, 2020Washington (CNN)Senate Democrats are outraged that a witness invited to testify before a congressional hearing on Tuesday is being given a public platform for her discredited ideas that could endanger the US response to the coronavirus pandemic.They say Dr. Jane Orient is a vaccine skeptic who has promoted the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat Covid-19 patients, despite the Food and Drug Administration stating that it should not be used to treat coronavirus patients and has criticized the federal government's role in urging Americans to get vaccinated against the virus.The Democrats note that coronavirus cases across the United States are spiking, and that approved treatments and new vaccines are crucial tools in combating the pandemic.Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, the Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman, said in a statement that his panel's hearing will focus on early treatments as "an essential part of a Covid-19 solution," and that he supports the "development of a safe and effective vaccine."Orient is the executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a right-wing advocacy group that opposes government involvement in health care. The group has reportedly published a journal with articles asserting that being gay shortens life expectancy and that HIV does not cause AIDS. She has lately expressed skepticism over the Covid-19 vaccine trials while pushing alternative treatments.In a phone interview on Monday, Orient, said her testimony would focus on expanding access to early, prophylactic treatment for Covid-19 such as the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine. Though the drug was initially pushed by President Donald Trump, the FDA reversed its emergency use authorization for its use to treat the virus after a series of studies showed not only that it did not help coronavirus patients but might be harmful.She also said her group was not opposed to vaccines but government mandates, even though the federal government has only recommended that the public take vaccines to help stop the spread of the virus.Senate Democrats strongly objected to Johnson's invitation for her to testify."At such a crucial time, giving a platform to conspiracy theorists to spread myths and falsehoods about coronavirus vaccines is downright dangerous and one of the last things Senate Republicans should be doing right now," said Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer.Orient told CNN that she didn't think Schumer knew "anything" about her and didn't know what conspiracy theories he referenced."I am concerned that Americans are not getting information about their alternatives for treatment," she claimed without providing any evidence. The National Institutes of Health has a page detailing coronavirus treatments.(9) YouTube channel of Journalist deleted for interview with anti-lockdown Doctor 28, 2020YouTube channel of journalist Anna Brees deleted after interviewing anti-lockdown doctor Heiko SchoningBy Didi Rankovic Posted 1:32 pmBrees had 75,000 subscribers.Not satisfied with censoring recent content around coronavirus uploaded by independent creators, YouTube is going through the back catalogs of their videos and removing them.Anna Brees, formerly of BBC and ITV, said on Twitter that her YouTube channel with 75,000 subscribers had been deleted and that the reason was an interview she did with Dr. Heiko Schoning during an anti-Covid lockdown protest in London in late September.Heiko Schoning is a German physician who formed the COVID-19 Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee (ACU) back in May, and is a member of the World Doctors Alliance (WDA) gathering independent doctors and other healthcare professionals skeptical of the response to the coronavirus pandemic.The note Brees got from YouTube is the standard one saying that the video – without explaining how exactly – violated YouTube’s content policy rules. These state YouTube won’t let anybody dispute the stance of the World Health Organization (WHO) on Covid lockdown measures, or those coming from national ("local") level accepting WHO as their supreme authority.And while WHO has issued nothing more than a guidance (therefore not a legal obligation), YouTube continues to quote this almost like a law (as it would an actual law dealing with terrorism, etc) and use it as an excuse to censor content.The incident demonstrates how YouTube today acts in two destructive ways: firstly as an anti-science platform, actively killing the fundamental scientific principle of debate, exchange of ideas, and above all, skepticism; and secondly, by making life very hard for independent creators like Brees, who are trying to build their journalistic careers in the new media, away from corporate overseers.If there’s one clear takeaway here, though, it’s that new media require new platforms: YouTube, regardless of the allure of its massive reach, has proven time and time again that native and independent talent is low on its agenda and ultimately unlikely to succeed there.(10) Twitter suspends pro-hydroxychloroquine Doctor Zev Zelenko 29, 2020By Didi RankovicPosted 9:00 amSupport of HCQ has often been censored on Twitter.Twitter on Sunday permanently suspended the account of Dr. Zev Zelenko, the creator of the Zelenko HCQ protocol, saying that the decision came as the account was disseminating medical misinformation.But in announcing the ban, Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin called the move "outrageous" while describing Dr. Zelenko’s protocol as having saved thousands of lives.It’s unclear from the tweet if the New York-based physician’s general stance on the coronavirus pandemic, available treatment and its efficiency, or a specific set of posts was what made Twitter decide to ban him from the platform.Back in July, Zelenko published a study focusing on Covid 19 outpatients and what effect early risk stratified treatment using zinc and low doses of Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin had in reducing these patients’ hospitalizations, and fatal outcomes.The protocol, published online, is a retrospective study relying on outpatient data. What sets this analysis apart is that it followed the progress in 5-day treatment of patients after their first visit and outside the hospital setting, while most other studies dealt with the effectiveness of treatment with drugs of those patients whose condition had already severely deteriorated and who were hospitalized.The result of Zelenko’s study – done in collaboration with two Germany-based scientists, Dr. Roland Derwand and Professor Martin Scholz of Heinrich Heine University in Dusseldorf – were encouraging. The conclusion of the paper that was offered for peer review was that this type of treatment of those treated outside of hospitals resulted in five time less need for hospitalization, and deaths.The study showed that only 4 out of 141 (2.8%) of patients who received the therapy consisting of zinc and low doses of the two drugs needed to be hospitalized, against 58 out of an untreated control group of 377 people (15.4%). Zelenko spoke in favor of treating patients as early as possible for best results, just like with any other infectious disease.He also concluded that the 5-day triple treatment was affordable and easy to administer, and expressed regret that media coverage of Hydroxychloroquine had been negative.So negative, in fact, that it’s not out of the realm of possibility that it was Zelenko’s arguments in favor of using Hydroxychloroquine that got him banned on Twitter.(11) Princeton Professor faces calls to be fired after posting pronouns poll on Twitter 29, 2020By Naga PramodPosted 8:02 pmProfessor George was accused of being "transphobic."If you're tired of cancel culture and censorship subscribe to Reclaim The Net.A Twitter poll by a Princeton University professor, Robert George, was at the seat of controversy, as many students felt that the poll was "transpohobic" and "invalidating of nonbinary and gender-nonconforming experiences."The professor ran a Twitter poll that asked users of the social media platform if they were going with "preferred pronouns" due to their "sex," "gender," or "ideology." Here’s what the professor precisely wrote on Twitter: "By listing or stating their ‘preferred pronouns’ people are making sure that others know their:" and provided the aforementioned three options.The poll results ended up with "ideology" being the highest voted option with 53.5 percent of the votes, followed by gender with 45.2 percent of the votes, and sex with the least percentage of votes, 1.4 percent.Critics of the poll, such as student Griffin Brooks, said "Pronouns are a microcosm of the large issue at hand, which is trans/nonbinary/[gender-nonconforming] acceptance."Another student, Priyanka Aiyer, said that there couldn’t possibly be any academic debate about gender preferences such as preferred pronouns. "We’re really talking about the existence and the validity of people whose gender is not the same as the one they were assigned at birth," says Aiyer.Other critics even went to the extent of calling Brooks’ poll as a "thinly-veiled attack" on non-binary and trans individuals.George, while responding to a Twitter reply, said that the backlash he’s receiving was a "natural reaction" to "attack the question — and the person who dares to ask it."Many have dug into the Conservative professor’s past tweets to push the claims that he is transphobic.George even tweeted in the past that regarding a "man as a woman is to misunderstand biology."Princeton hasn’t yet announced any investigation or disciplinary action against the professor. That said, the university spokesperson Ben Chang had released a statement in support of "students of all identities," and students have called for the professor to be fired.(12) Big Pharma-influenced regulators will attempt to take away doctors' licenses if they don’t comply is at a CrossroadsThis is why we fight: Imagine a world in which pediatricians must abandon the Hippocratic Oath and evidence-based medicine. Why? Because Big Pharma-influenced regulators will attempt to take away their medical licenses if they don’t follow CDC’s one-size-fits-all vaccine schedule, which recommends 72 vaccine doses for every child — even those that have already been injured.Imagine a world with every square inch blanketed in harmful 5G radiation that is used to track the every move of every human — and there is no escaping it.Imagine a world in which children, 11 years and up, are coerced into taking vaccines without their parents' knowledge or consent, meaning parents won’t even have a clue what is wrong if their child’s health takes a turn for the worse.Imagine a world in which you can’t get an education unless you subject your body to experimental medical products... a world in which your ability to participate in society depends on your compliance with for-profit agendas that have repeatedly proven high risk... where all information is censored and distorted... a world where there is no freedom.This is the reality we are up against. Now, COVID vaccine mandates are on the horizon, too. CHD is working every day to turn the tide. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we fight these battles through litigation, highlighted below. Please support us with a donation in any amount, so we can continue to push back against medical tyranny and technocratic takeover. ...Now imagine a world where children are protected from medical tyranny and dangerous interventions and radiation; where they are free to go to school and sports without compromising their health. Imagine a world in which we the people still have rights to our own bodies and can live, work, and raise our children in a democracy. Stand at this crossroads of humanity and fight for freedom!CHD is a 501c3 organization. For U.S. citizens, the CARES Act provides that for 2020 only, donations up to $300 are 100% tax deductible, in addition to the "standard deduction." Also the cap on how much of a donor's adjusted gross income can be deducted is lifted for 2020 (ask your tax professional for more details.)Help CHD direct our future toward freedom and health and away from medical tyranny.(13) Thousands of Doctors and Scientists join dissident medical groups 25, 2020COVID has Caused Tens of Thousands of Medical Doctors and Scientists to Wake Up to Corruption in the Medical IndustryA More Honest Perspective of the Covid-19 Pandemicby Richard Gale and Gary Null PhDProgressive Radio NetworkSince the first cases of the new coronavirus strain outside of China, every aspect of the pandemic’s ever-changing amoebic narrative has been carefully controlled by the World Health Organization and major government health agencies.High officials within a syndicate of institutions, including the CDC, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and the UK’s National Heath Service, have largely dictated government responses to lessen the pandemic.  [...]Around the world, dissident medical voices are warning us that:The official death counts, particularly in the US and the UK are grossly exaggerated.Polyermase chain reaction (PCR) was never created to be used as a diagnostic tool to determine Covid-19 infection or any other virus. Over-reliance upon PCR is a travesty that has created a Case-pandemic rather an actual symptomatic scourge.The evidence to support the belief that large social lockdowns and social distancing, perhaps even mask wearing, will deter the spread of the virus is overstated and inaccurate.America’s official narrative, where the number of cases per capita far surpass any other nation, that effective, safe and cheaper drugs such as Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) have no value and post serious harm is completely unfounded. Rather, if used wisely it is highly effective and safe as a preventative measure for first stage treatment of mild and moderate infections.A compilation of 210 studies on HCQ’s effectiveness against Covid-19, 145 peer reviewed, only found 26 that showed the cheap, widely used drug posed some risks or was ineffective. The remainder clearly indicates that HCQ is one of our best and most reliable courses of treatment. For example a study of 585 patients treated with HCQ along with azithromycin and zinc were relieved in under 3 days and none were hospitalized, required ventilation or died. Another study published in the journal Clinical and Translational Science reported 73% reduction in hospitalization with no serious adverse events.In the meantime, we are told we must wait for a vaccine or a new miracle drug and no other medical intervention is warranted other than personal hygienic practices, masks and social distancing.The New York Times and other major media outlets are misrepresenting new cases of Covid-19 with the actual disease, thereby grossly inflating those who may be positive but are otherwise healthy and pose no public threat.The WHO’s, CDC’s and NHS’ internal confusion and culture of inconsistency are leaving more and more citizens questioning who can be trusted. Even the otherwise conservative British Medical Journal published a rare and brutal condemnation of the corruption and commercialization throughout the official Covid-19 narrative.  BMJ’s executive editor Kamran Abbasi wrote:"Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health.1 Politicians and industry are responsible for this opportunistic embezzlement. So too are scientists and health experts. The pandemic has revealed how the medical-political complex can be manipulated in an emergency—a time when it is even more important to safeguard science."Sadly mainstream media such as the New York Times, Washington Post and BBC are revealing a lack of journalistic integrity despite the open accessibility of medical studies to the contrary. Instead the media serves as an echo chamber to continue advancing this international debacle created by our leading health officials.  [...]In the UK, Public Health England states,"if a person has both a negative and positive test, then only their positive test will be counted."The US does likewise.University of California virologist Dr. Juliet Morrison stated,"I’m shocked that people think that 40 [cycles] could represent a positive."She recommends a reasonable cutoff at 35, and Dr. Michael Mina at Harvard’s School of Public Heath suggests 30 or less. University of North Carolina’s director of clinical microbiology Melissa Miller has called the application PCR for all situations "completely irresponsible." [...](14) Great Barrington Declaration infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice.Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza.As immunity builds in the population, the risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e.  the point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd immunity.The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.Adopting measures to protect the vulnerable should be the central aim of public health responses to COVID-19. By way of example, nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent testing of other staff and all visitors. Staff rotation should be minimized. Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials delivered to their home. When possible, they should meet family members outside rather than inside. A comprehensive and detailed list of measures, including approaches to multi-generational households, can be implemented, and is well within the scope and capability of public health professionals.Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home.

He said that within minutes of the vaccine injection at 3:30 p.m., his heart rate had spiked to 150 beats per minute, about twice its normal cadence; his tongue prickled and went numb. Before long, he was drenched in a cold sweat and found himself feeling dizzy and faint. His blood pressure also plummeted, he said.His immune system, he realized, was in revolt."It was the same anaphylactic reaction that I experience with shellfish," Dr. Sadrzadeh said.Dr. Sadrzadeh used his EpiPen and was taken on a stretcher to the emergency room, where he was given several medications, including steroids and Benadryl, to calm the immune reactions that had overtaken his body. A record of his visit stated that he had been "seen in the ER for shortness of breath, dizziness, palpitations and numbness after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine."Four hours later, Dr. Sadrzadeh was released from care. As of Friday morning, he said he felt fully recovered.But the previous day’s events shook him. "I don’t want anybody to go through that," he said. (Source.)The New York Post reported another injury in New York City, but with almost no details.A New York City health care worker suffered a "significant allergic reaction" to a COVID-19 vaccine — the first "serious adverse event" to the jab in the Big Apple, officials said Wednesday.Neither the worker’s identity nor the nature and extent of the reaction were revealed, although officials said the worker was in stable condition following unspecified treatment.It’s also unclear which of the two vaccines that have been authorized for emergency use — one developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, the other by Moderna — caused the reaction. (Source.)Like the Pfizer experimental vaccine, the FDA guidelines for healthcare workers in administering the Moderna experimental COVID vaccine warns about allergic reactions and going into anaphylactic shock after receiving the vaccine.The FDA guidelines for the experimental Moderna COVID vaccine, both for healthcare workers as well as for recipients, also clearly state in multiple places that the Moderna experimental vaccine is NOT approved by the FDA:FDA has authorized the emergency use of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, which is not an FDA-approved vaccine.So if you choose to receive this vaccine, you are basically agreeing to further participate in the last stages of their vaccine trial to see whether or not the vaccine is effective and safe. You are volunteering to be a human lab rat.The media, including most in the alternative media, continue to erroneously publish that the FDA has approved these vaccines.All across the U.S. 40% – 60% of healthcare workers are reportedly refusing to participate.At the end of the first week of the Pfizer emergency use authorization, the CDC reported that 3150 healthcare workers were injured to the extent that they could not continue on their jobs and perform normal activities, requiring care from a doctor or healthcare worker. See:They did not supply a report at the end of this past week, probably because they were taking time off for the holidays. It will be interesting to see if they continue to make these reports accessible to the public.University of Miami Researchers Recommend Men Freeze Their Sperm Prior to Volunteering for the Experimental COVID VaccinesIn Florida this past week, it was reported that the University of Miami is investigating the possible effects of the coronavirus vaccine on male fertility.The University of Miami is investigating the possible effects of the coronavirus vaccine on male fertility.Lead researchers Dr. Ranjith Ramasamy, a reproductive urologist with U Health, initiated an earlier study which found the virus was present in the testicles for up to six months following infection.That spurred his team to question the virus’ effect on sperm and reproduction.His team is now looking at the potential impact of the vaccine as well."We’re evaluating the sperm parameters and quality before the vaccine and after the vaccine. From the biology of the COVID vaccine we believe it shouldn’t affect fertility but we want to do the study to make sure that man who want to have kids in the future to assure them it’s safe to go ahead and get the vaccine," Ramasamy said.Study participants must have a fertility evaluation before receiving the vaccine.To protect fertility, some men may want to consider freezing their sperm prior to vaccination.

There are no zeros missing," Hartley-Brewer noted urging that while it is sad, it shouldn’t justify the shutdown of the economy and the house arrest of the entire country.She further noted that pointing this out doesn’t mean she is saying "to hell with the old and sick".And for the hard of understanding virtual signallers, that doesn't mean "to hell with the old and sick". It means the Great Barrington Declaration was and is correct: help the millions of old & sick to shield while allowing the young & healthy (& our economy) to carry on living.— Julia Hartley-Brewer (@JuliaHB1) December 26, 2020
