Editor's Headlines

China was the first country to implement mitigation measures which are generally not recommended by the pre-2020 pandemic response plans of the WHO, USA, UK, and Australia, such as lockdowns, quarantines, masks, entry/exit testing, social distancing, border closures, and internal travel restrictions. Those pre-2020 plans also acknowledge how the government's response should uphold the people's rights and protect their privacy. As of January 2022, we're still seeing most countries follow China's example instead of their official response procedures.

A double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial shows that Ivermectin is able to cure covid within 6 days for most people: "On day 6, 34 out of 47 (72%) patients in the ivermectin arm reached the endpoint, compared to 21/ 42 (50%) in the placebo arm (OR 2·62; 95% CI: 1·09-6·31). In a multivariable logistic-regression model, the odds of a negative test at day 6 was 2.62 time higher in the ivermectin group (95% CI: 1·06–6·45). Cultures at days 2 to 6 were positive in 3/23 (13·0%) of ivermectin samples vs. 14/29 (48·2%) in the placebo group (p=0·008). Conclusions: There were significantly lower viral loads and viable cultures in the ivermectin group, which could lead to shortening isolation time in these patients."

Ivermectin has antiviral properties: "Ivermectin, a broadly used anti-helminthic drug, proved to be a highly potent inhibitor of YFV replication (EC50 values in the sub-nanomolar range). Moreover, ivermectin inhibited, although less efficiently, the replication of several other flaviviruses, i.e. dengue fever, Japanese encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis viruses. Ivermectin exerts its effect at a timepoint that coincides with the onset of intracellular viral RNA synthesis, as expected for a molecule that specifically targets the viral helicase. Conclusions: The well-tolerated drug ivermectin may hold great potential for treatment of YFV infections. Furthermore, structure-based optimization may result in analogues exerting potent activity against flaviviruses other than YFV."

3.1 Pre-2020 Pandemic Plans

3.1.1 Examples of Pre-2020 Plans

Pre-2020 pandemic procedures weren't followed: "Worldwide, we are currently in an unprecedented situation with regard to the SARS-Cov-2 epidemic, where countries are using isolation and lock-down measures to control the spread of infection. This is a scenario generally not much anticipated by previous theory, and in particular, there has been little attention paid to the question of extinction as a means to eradicate the virus; the prevailing view appears to be that this is unfeasible without a vaccine."

"The Untold Story of the Birth of Social Distancing"

China did not follow pre-2020 pandemic plans:

400 Studies About Mask Ineffectiveness, Mask Mandates, Mask Harms, Lockdowns, and School Closures, courtesy of Paul Elias Alexander of the Brownstone Institute

Joint plan between the United States, Canada, and Mexico:

"Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) . . . performed confirmatory testing and rapidly produced a strain-specific laboratory test. Test kits and protocols were quickly distributed to international virology laboratories for use in identifying cases. Although laboratory testing capabilities were rapidly developed, low sensitivity field testing methods and changing case definitions led to uncertainty and potential misdiagnosis in the early days of the pandemic."

"During Pandemic (H1N1) 2009, mitigation measures employed for residents of border and non-border communities included keeping people educated, asking sick people to exercise voluntary personal preventive measures when attending large events or traveling, and to stay home when possible. Although these measures did not contain the pandemic, they may have mitigated its impact. The quick decision of Canada, Mexico, and the United States to keep the borders open and minimize travel restrictions limited disruptions of travel and trade, avoided panic, and saved resources."

-Only mention of masks, social distancing, quarantine is in regarding to countries sharing their plans for implement personal protective equipment

-No mention of border closure, travel restrictions, entry/exit testing

2013 North American Plan For Animal and Pandemic Influenza

"Good practice for strategic planning: There is a legal framework for the deployment of pandemic response measures, e.g. regulatory approval and procurement of pandemic vaccines and other pharmaceutical countermeasures, social distancing measures, emergency release of budget. "Pandemic plans that take into account ethical aspects, such as prioritisation of clinical treatment or vaccine, provision of pandemic vaccine to healthcare workers, handling of conflicts of interest, possible infringement of basic human rights in pandemic response, extent of medical professionals’ duty of care."

"Non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) may help reduce transmission of the pandemic virus and may be especially important in the first months of a pandemic when there is no pandemic vaccine available . . . the measures implemented should . . coordinated under the provisions of Decision No 1082/2013/EU, whether they pertain to international travel and trade, personal protection or social distancing. It should be noted that the evidence-base for the effectiveness of many NPIs is weak. This, as well as acceptability, feasibility and legal framework for implementation differs between countries and should be taken into account in national planning."

"Once a candidate drug or vaccine has been developed, it must then go through clinical trials to test for safety and efficacy. However, as was demonstrated in the 2014 2016 Ebola epidemic in West Africa, trials in the midst of an outbreak will be logistically and ethically challenging. Moreover, many countries maintain their own paradigm for pharmaceutical regulation and have not put in place policies for emergency use of medical countermeasures that may not have full regulatory approval. These complexities could slow international MCM deployment, which could impede efforts to control a severe disease outbreak."

"NPIs often require addressing additional considerations or challenges to implement. For example, quarantine requires strict adherence to be effective, so it works best when government has a trusting relationship with the public. Quarantine and other movement restrictions also involve legal and ethical considerations and should be supported by available evidence to prevent undue burden on affected individuals."

"Widespread use of masks and respirators by the public would be complicated by the challenges of proper fit, the costs, and the inability of the supply chain to provide masks at that scale."

"The implementation of border closures and travel bans may give governments more credibility among their own citizens for attempting to stop the outbreak, but historical evidence and modeling and public health experts would argue such measures would be unlikely to substantially add to disease control efforts."

"For high-impact respiratory pathogens, contact tracing would quickly become infeasible."

"In the context of a high-impact respiratory pathogen, quarantine may be the least likely NPI to be effective in controlling the spread due to high transmissibility."

"Quarantine measures will be least effective for pathogens that are highly transmissible, have short incubation periods, and spread through true airborne mechanisms, as opposed to droplets."

"travel restrictions have also been employed by countries as a political or social measure to abate fear rather than a necessary public health measure."

-No mention of mask wearing by healthy individuals

-"Mask wearing by symptomatic individuals in the community," a measure with criteria that "[t]his measure may be considered by individuals when the disease has a high clinical severity."

-Masking risk "increased indirect transmission through constant touching and adjusting of wet masks"

-Proactive school closures: "Not generally recommended"

-Reactive school closures: "Not recommended"

-Workplace closures: “Not generally recommended”

-Canceling mass gatherings: “Not generally recommended”

-Internal travel restrictions: "Not recommended in general as benefits are likely to be minor"

-Working from home: "This measure should be considered for pandemics with a moderate to high clinical severity, and where home working can be reasonably accommodated. Home working may not be practical for many workplaces

-Social distancing: "the available evidence is weak" . . . "The evidence concerning the overall effectiveness of isolating cases is moderate. It is limited to a small number of modelling studies that tried to measure the impact of isolation of affected cases at home." "Compliance and benefits with social distancing measures are likely to be highest when disease is clinically severe."


-Entry screening: "As screening methods are not effective in detecting cases, border nurses will not have a significant impact on preventing transmission from imported cases."

-Exit screening: "Not recommended as effectiveness is likely to be low and costs are likely to be high"

-Thermal scanners: "Not recommended as effectiveness is likely to be low"


-"The public’s perceived risk-benefit profile for vaccination is likely to be dynamic, becoming less favourable over the course of a pandemic response."

-"Acceptability will depend on public perception of the impact of the pandemic and candidate vaccine safety."

It is especially important to ensure that all actions respect ethical guidelines tailored to the concerns of public health, while respecting the rights of individuals as much as possible."

"Some measures, like hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette, are applicable in all pandemics. Other measures (e.g., proactive school closures and travel restrictions) might be used only in moderate- to high-impact situations, as they can be associated with significant societal and economic costs."

"Border and travel measures—These interventions include provision of travel health advice, screening of travellers and travel restrictions. Evidence for their effectiveness is limited and their implementation would depend on the risk assessment and resultant risk/benefit analysis of the actions being considered."

Such measures may include, but are not limited to, the screening, examining and detaining of arriving and departing international travellers"

"the novel virus could be resistant to antiviral medications and/or pandemic vaccine production could be delayed or unsuccessful. The extent of vaccine uptake and adoption of public health measures is also unknown. Furthermore, interventions could have unintended consequences."

"Because of their potential societal impact, social distancing measures are most applicable in pandemics of moderate to high impact."

"Levels of public awareness and understanding and risk perception, along with level of trust in health authorities, could affect degree of adoption (and therefore potential effectiveness) of preventive behaviours such as infection prevention behaviours, social distancing, and uptake of vaccine and antiviral medications."

"Although there is a perception that the wearing of facemasks by the public in the community and household setting may be beneficial, there is in fact very little evidence of widespread benefit from their use in this setting."

"The economic, political, and social consequences of border closures would also be very substantial, including risks to the secure supply of food, pharmaceuticals, and other supplies."

"Given the two to three day incubation period for pandemic influenza, there is no evidence of any public health benefit to be gained from meeting planes from affected countries or similar pro-active measures such as thermal scanning or other screening methods. Such measures are largely ineffective, impractical to implement, and highly resource intensive."

"The development of a new pandemic-specific vaccine can only begin once the new pandemic influenza viral strain has been identified and isolated."

2007: Responding to pandemic influenza The ethical framework for policy and planning 2007 WHO Ethical Considerations in Pandemic Responses

Ethical considerations in developing a public health response to pandemic influenza, World Health Organization, 2007 WHO released guidance on ethical considerations during pandemics in 2007:

"Many critical ethical questions arise in pandemic influenza planning, preparedness and response. How can surveillance, isolation, quarantine and social-distancing measures be undertaken in a way that respects ethical norms?"

"efforts to protect individual rights should be part of any policy. Measures that limit individual rights and civil liberties must be necessary, reasonable, proportional, equitable, non discriminatory, and in full compliance with national and international laws"

"Public health measures that involve significant costs and/or burdens should be reserved for situations where they can be reasonably expected to make a difference to the consequences of a pandemic."

"Countries have an obligation to minimize the burden of disease on individuals and communities, but they must do so in a way that is respectful of individual rights and liberties. The need to balance the interests of the community and the rights of the individual is of particular importance in the implementation of public health measures such as isolation, quarantine, social distancing and border control. While all of these measures can legitimately be attempted in order to delay the spread or mitigate the impact of an influenza pandemic, the burden they place on individual liberties requires that their use be carefully circumscribed and limited to circumstances where they are reasonably expected to provide an important public health benefit."

"governments should establish coherent and transparent communication policies that articulate how such international efforts are grounded in ethics and human rights."

3.1.2 Sweden Followed Pre-2020 Plans with Success

"Sweden: Despite Variants, No Lockdowns, No Daily Covid Deaths"

"Sweden’s no lockdown covid response is often called an “experiment.” This is utterly false, and it’s easy to prove."

"Children are generally considered less likely to develop severe COVID‐19 disease and represent a low proportion of diagnosed cases."

"In total, 68 Swedish hospitals reported 10 991 pediatric surgical or diagnostic procedures in the selected period of 2020 compared to 18 006 in the matched weeks of 2019. This amounts to 7015 fewer procedures during the pandemic and, therefore, a reduction in the total number of 39.0%. The reduction in elective cases was 53.7% (6819 fewer cases, p < .001)."

"From the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Public Health Agency, Folkhälsomyndigheten (FHM), embarked on a de-facto herd immunity approach, allowing community transmission to occur relatively unchecked.4 No mandatory measures were taken to limit crowds on public transport, in shopping malls, or in other crowded places, while recommending a limit of 50 people for gatherings5 as of March 29, 2020. Coronavirus testing, contact tracing, source identification, and reporting, as recommended by WHO,6 were limited and remain inadequate.7 In our view, there is still not sufficient recognition in the national strategy of the importance of presymptomatic and asymptomatic transmission, aerosol transmission,8, 9 and use of face masks."

COVID-19 and the Swedish enigma, December 22, 2020

"It has downplayed the roles of asymptomatic spread, aerosol transmission, children as potential source of infection, and the use of face masks. It has maintained an approach that mainly builds on recommendations to take voluntary actions, guided (in our view) more by public opinion than by sound public health policy. The media has played a crucial role in this pandemic response, mostly lacking in investigative journalism and failing to question or hold the public health agency accountable, with some exceptions.2 Dagens Nyheter, a major newspaper, recently exposed3 Sweden's large inequities in COVID-19 deaths across income, education, and origin of birth—data that should have informed the national strategy from its inception."

The Swedish COVID-19 strategy revisited, April 19, 2021

"Italy had installed a national lockdown, minimised outdoor activities, and imposed restrictions on international travel and public gatherings. In contrast, Sweden had adopted a less restrictive strategy, permitting outside activities to take place, and allowing gatherings of up to 50 persons, while restricting international and non-essential travel (Habib, 2020). South Korea was able to bring the transmission of COVID-19 under control through more targeted measures, avoiding a national lockdown and instead increasing the deployment of COVID-19 testing and contact tracing(COVID-19 and the Long Road to Herd Immunity | Hub, n.d.)(Ritchie et al., 2020a)."

"There is no size fits all in the analysis of the COVID-19 response. Italy had to impose a restrictive measure to ensure that the healthcare system had resources and time to combat the outbreak. Italy has an increasingly elderly population with comorbidities who were vulnerable to the virus and had attributed to the increased death toll. On the other hand, Sweden had placed the responsibility back onto the individual and were able to secure public health compliance. It is apparent that Sweden was able to adopt the strategy which may not be appropriate to replicate in other EU member states. South Korea was able to afford lessened restrictions due to the high-volume testing. With low contact high volume tracing, cases could be isolated and there was less reliance on other measures making the restrictions more sustainable."

"the death toll for Italy is significantly higher when compared to Sweden and South Korea."

"Sweden's controversial non-lockdown COVID-19 policy appears to be paying off as positive cases hit a new low. While infection rates in other European cases are surging, Sweden recorded a rolling seven-day average of 108 yesterday - its lowest since March. Sweden has reported 5843 pandemic deaths - one of the world's highest due to a big spike at the start of the pandemic."

3.1.3 Unprepared Africa Beats COVID

2018 study evaluated the pandemic response plans of 47 African countries which were made in response to the WHO's calls for new pandemic plans after the 2009 H1N1 outbreak.

"Of the 47 countries in the WHO African region, a total of 35 national pandemic plans were evaluated. The composite score for the completeness of the pandemic plans across the 35 countries was 36%. Country-specific scores on each of the thematic indicators for pandemic plan completeness varied, ranging from 5% in Côte d’Ivoire to 79% in South Africa. On average, preparation and risk communication scored 48%, respectively, while coordination and partnership scored the highest with an aggregate score of 49%. Surveillance and monitoring scored 34%, while prevention and containment scored 35%. Case investigation and treatment scored 25%, and ethical consideration scored the lowest of 14% across 35 countries. Overall, our assessment shows that pandemic preparedness plans across the WHO African region are inadequate."

"Most importantly, although often forgotten in the majority of the preparedness plans is the need for ethical considerations. Our study indicates that, with the exception of one plan (South Africa), no other plans reported having an ethical framework in place. There is an expectation that during a pandemic influenza outbreak, ethical issues will arise due to conflicting interests between civil liberties (i.e. violation of human rights) and population health (i.e. greatest good for the greatest number) [20]. In the absence of an ethical plan, it is difficult to respond appropriately to ethical dilemmas and this can constitute a threat to preparedness and response. We propose that all countries develop an ethical framework that can be used to address ethical problems such as these of rationing limited vaccines or failure by health care-workers to work on the bedside during the pandemic."

November 2018: Pandemic influenza preparedness in the WHO African region: are we ready yet?

South Africa's Feb. 2020 preparedness and response plan did not include guidelines for mask wearing by non-healthcare workers, social distancing, border closures, travel restrictions, entry/exit testing, quarantines, lockdowns, or herd immunity via vaccination.

Nigeria's 2013 response plan does not mention use of face masks by non-healthcare workers, border closures being effective, internal entry/exit testing, quarantines for asymptomatic, lockdowns.

Nigeria National Pandemic Influenza Preparedness and Response Plan September 2013

"The morbidity and mortality were statistically significantly less in the 31 countries using CDTI [community-directed treatment with ivermectin]. The recovery and fatality rates were not statistically significant difference. The average life expectancy was statistically significantly higher in the non-endemic countries."

Why COVID-19 is not so spread in Africa: How does Ivermectin affect it?

No mention of hydroxychloroquine or HIV antivirals: "Africa has attracted tremendous attention, due to predictions of catastrophic impacts that have not yet materialized. Early in the pandemic, the seemingly low African case count was largely attributed to low testing and case reporting. However, there is reason to consider that many African countries attenuated the spread and impacts early on. Factors explaining low spread include early government community-wide actions, population distribution, social contacts, and ecology of human habitation."

"The phenomenon of trained immunity may be tempering the COVID-19 burden in the continent."

"Relatively low severity and death due to COVID-19 in Africa presents somewhat of a paradox [41,42,187]. Despite early ‘doomsday’ predictions for Africa, the continent succeeded in stemming the first wave of SARS-CoV-2 spread [188], although the second wave was more severe [21]."

"It is likely that SARS-CoV-2 has already been widely disseminated through Africa, yet evidently without having had the severe consequences of COVID-19 burden, such as the significant uptick in hospitalizations and deaths that many other regions have experienced [25]. If so, widespread infection is likely to also result in widespread natural immunity [197]."

"Now, as the pandemic evolves, the vaccine rollout needs to be especially accelerated to reach more people, as the continent lags with less than 5% of its population having received at least one shot as of August 2021 [201]."

What Could Explain the Lower COVID-19 Burden in Africa despite Considerable Circulation of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus?

No mention of hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, or HIV antivirals: "Recent data estimates that the African continent has accounted for just 4.1% of the total of 4.3 million deaths due to COVID-19. Earlier on in the pandemic, scientists had predicted a COVID-19 catastrophe in Africa, which is much more severe than what has actually been observed across the continent. South Africa is an exception and accounts for 35% of the confirmed cases and 42% of total deaths reported in 55 countries of the African continent."

"The extensive spread and high disease burden were predicted based on transmission dynamics of the virus, socioeconomic deprivation, unsanitary living conditions, and poor healthcare systems throughout the African continent. Several small studies have been conducted in different parts of Africa, but these results were not validated in an Africa-specific context. Cross-reactivity with other micro-organisms and hypergammaglobulinemia due to malaria exposure may affect the sensitivity/specificity of these tests. This could further lead to underestimation or overestimation of seroprevalence."

"Some studies have argued that factors like the demographic profile and early actions (e.g., lockdowns) are responsible for the lower COVID-19 burden, but there are still many questions unanswered."

"Why is the COVID-19 transmission rate low in Africa? Many governments in Africa acted early to contain the pandemic, and on 22nd April 2020, the World Health Organization highlighted examples of how Africa was leading the global response. Measures such as early border closures, less international connectivity, and lockdowns helped lower the caseload."

"healthcare facilities are quite poor in the continent, and a third wave or the emergence of more infectious variants may severely challenge public health in this region. Vaccination remains a challenge, and less than 5% of the African people have received at least one vaccine dose. This is undoubtedly the area that needs immediate attention and improvement."

No mention of hydroxychloroquine nor HIV antivirals: "In the capital as in much of Zimbabwe, the coronavirus is quickly being relegated to the past, as political rallies, concerts and home gatherings have returned. “COVID-19 is gone. When did you last hear of anyone who has died of COVID-19?” Ndou said. “The mask is to protect my pocket,” he added. “The police demand bribes, so I lose money if I don’t move around with a mask.”"

Scientists are mystified, and wary, as Africa avoids COVID-19 disaster

Africa followed China's response, and no mention of hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, nor HIV antivirals: "In response to the COVID-19 pandemic these countries closed their borders and airports, implemented screening for SARS-CoV-2 at port of entry, and introduced a mandatory 14-day quarantine for returning travellers. These SSA countries issued national guidelines on recommended safety measures, initiated immediate contact tracing, prevented mass gatherings, instituted national lockdown and curfew, closed schools and urged the private sector and the government personnel to work from home."

Addressing Africa’s pandemic puzzle: Perspectives on COVID-19 transmission and mortality in sub-Saharan Africa

"Instead of rising during the pandemic to slow the spread of COVID-19, new CCP research finds that handwashing rates actually fell in parts of sub-Saharan Africa."

"“People are exhausted and perhaps not as likely to be as assiduous with prevention measures as they were at the beginning of the pandemic,” she says. “It’s imperative that we need to find ways to cut through that and remind people how important it still is to wash their hands, wear face masks and physical distance from one another.”"

There were 8000 cases and about 75 hundred deaths. That was SARs. Then, in 2012, we had another similar outbreak of another coronavirus that jumped species and infected men and women in the Middle East and that was called MERS, or the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. And now, for the third time, we have a coronavirus in China that apparently jumped species from some animal reservoir, infected people, and now we have an evolving situation of many cases that are now evolving more and more each day. …

"We have on our hands an outbreak. … It isn’t something that the American public needs to worry about or be frightened about because we have ways of preparing and screening people coming in and we have ways of responding like we did with this one case in Seattle, Washington who had traveled to China. … It’s an evolving situation and everyday we have to look at it very very carefully. It does not seem to be as efficient in the persistent sustained transmission from human-to-human. Without a doubt it can spread from one human to another. What it doesn’t seem yet to be doing as efficiently, certainly not like influenza, which spreads very efficiently in a sustained way, this does not do so. Which means that, just like SARS, we have the possibility with good public health measures of hopefully getting in control of it.”"

I’ve said that many times even on this program. You’ve got to watch out because although the risk is low now, you don’t need to change anything you’re doing.

Anthony Fauci: “You know, it ends if you — it depends on the nature of the outbreak. I mean, this could be a major outbreak. I hope not. Or it could be something that’s reasonably well controlled.

When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.

Statement from the President Regarding the Defense Production Act

President Trump tells Sean Hannity: "I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be . . . I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You go into major hospitals sometimes, and they’ll have two ventilators. And now, all of a sudden, they’re saying, ‘Can we order 30,000 ventilators?’"

CIA warns agents not to take hydroxychloroquine: "At this point, the drug is not recommended to be used by patients except by medical professionals prescribing it as part of ongoing investigational studies. There are potentially significant side effects, including sudden cardiac death, associated with hydroxychloroquine and its individual use in patients need to be carefully selected and monitored by a health care professional. Please do not obtain this medication on your own."

But we want to look into it — World Health Organization — because they really are — they called it wrong. They called it wrong. They really — they missed the call. They could have called it months earlier. They would have known, and they should have known. And they probably did know, so we’ll be looking into that very carefully. And we’re going to put a hold on money spent to the WHO. We’re going to put a very powerful hold on it, and we’re going to see. It’s a great thing if it works, but when they call every shot wrong, that’s no good."

“Obviously you could logically say that if you had a process that was ongoing and started mitigation earlier, you could have saved lives. Obviously no one is going to deny that . . . If we had, right from the very beginning shut everything down, it may have been different. But there was a lot of push back for shutting everything down back then.”

President Donald J. Trump Is Demanding Accountability From the World Health Organization: "One of the most dangerous and costly decisions from the WHO was its disastrous decision to oppose travel restrictions from China and other nations. They were very much opposed to what we did. Fortunately, I was not convinced and suspended travel from China, saving untold numbers of lives. Thousands and thousands of people would have died. Had other nations likewise suspended travel from China countless lives would have been saved. … The reality is that the WHO failed to adequately obtain, vet and share information in a timely and transparent fashion. … The WHO has not addressed a single one of these concerns nor provided an explanation that acknowledges its own mistakes, of which there were many. … It would have been so easy to be truthful and so much death has been caused by their mistakes. . . . We will continue to engage with the WHO to see it can make meaningful reforms. For the time being, we will redirect global health … and we’ll be discussing with other countries and influential global health partners what we do with all that money that goes to the WHO.”"

The State Department warned against this course of action: "“Current discussions regarding pausing U.S. assistance to the WHO to combat the pandemic risks not only further undermining our ability to help host governments address urgent needs, but also undermines the U.S. narrative of a long-standing partner at precisely the time posts are most reliant on that narrative.”"

We must therefore be vigilant to ensure its protections are preserved, at the same time that the public is protected."

The IOAC notes that the design of the PHEIC is very broad, covering everything from a limited regional outbreak such as Ebola in West Africa to a large global pandemic that touches every country.

Of the top 10 countries in total cases, that is the biggest spike by a significant margin, compared with drops in cases in Brazil, Spain, Italy, Germany and Iran and growths of under 5 percent in Russia, India and Peru."

"The DOH didn’t collect statistics on nursing-home COVID-19 mortalities until mid-April, after the governor was pressured for the information.

To date, the nursing-home COVID mortality count is nearly 6,000; however, the real number is likely much higher. Many residents who weren’t tested for COVID-19 died suddenly during those early weeks, without the typical respiratory symptoms that would result in their deaths being labeled “COVID presumed.”"

"The American Journal of Managed Care®: Is there anything you would recommend in terms of what’s happening now, to where we have rapidly publishing scientific and clinical research that would both keep the speed of publicly sharing developments while ensuring the accuracy even if it’s not full peer review?"

"Anthony Fauci: No, I think you said it yourself just now—you have to get a delicate balance between the public’s need to know data that could influence policy or public health approaches, without delaying the availability of those data, balanced against the need to get the proper peer review and to get it done in an expeditious manner. There’s good news and bad news. Some of the things that have come out were data that were important that came out much sooner than waiting for the process of peer review. However, a number of them are in the realm of “not verified yet,” so you’ve got to be careful you don’t propagate false information. I must say one thing that does encourage me is that the ability to get a peer-reviewed paper peer reviewed and out quickly is infinitely better and quicker than it was a few years ago. So the journals, I think, are stepping to the plate and forcing review, so as not to let a paper sit on their desk for 6 to 8 weeks, the way it used to be. I remember very clearly, the median time to get a review back would be like 8 weeks, which is ridiculous. Now when I get asked by a journal, particularly some of the top-line journals, to review a paper, part of the request is, “Can you have this [done] within 24 to 72 hours?” Like whoa! Whereas back then, it was, “Yes, please have it in 8 weeks.” So I think the journals’ capability of reviewing in an effective way, but doing it in a matter of days, as opposed to a matter of several weeks, is going to lessen the potential negative impact of getting un–peer-reviewed papers out there that overwhelm the papers that are peer reviewed. I think that we’re going to see a tendency toward peer-reviewed papers coming out much more quickly."

Their aim is clear. This hurts any President or administration. This is designed to hurt this President for their reasons which I am not interested in. I am intersted (sic) in this or any President being served fairly and that tax payers money not be used for political reasons. They CDC, work for him. … The reports must be read by someone outside of CDC like myself, and we cannot allow the reporting to go on as it has been, for it is outrageous. Its lunacy. … Nothing to go out unless I read and agree with the findings how they CDC, wrote it and I tweak it to ensure it is fair and balanced and ‘complete.’"

Previously, on The Steve Deace Show, Atlas was a vocal advocate for herd immunity as well as limited use of face masks: “Those who are not at risk to be – to die or have a serious hospital-requiring illness – we should be fine with letting them get infected, generating immunity on their own. And the more immunity in the community, the better we can eradicate the threat of the virus.”

"New York State Health Commissioner Howard Zucker . . . said the Health Department has provided unprecedented transparency by making public information on the deaths . . . That didn’t sit well with Senate and Assembly lawmakers at the joint hearing who said the Health Department's statistic of more than 6,400 nursing home deaths due to Covid-19 represented an intentional undercounting because infected nursing home residents who died at hospitals were not included. “I will not provide information that is not absolutely accurate. I will get you that number,” Zucker said at different points during the hearing"

"The top U.S. infectious diseases expert is warning that distributing a COVID-19 vaccine under special emergency use guidelines before it has been proved safe and effective in large trials is a bad idea that could have a chilling effect on the testing of other vaccines. . . . “The one thing that you would not want to see with a vaccine is getting an EUA (emergency use authorization) before you have a signal of efficacy . . . One of the potential dangers if you prematurely let a vaccine out is that it would make it difficult, if not impossible, for the other vaccines to enroll people in their trial,” Fauci said. . . . “I would be very worried about using an EUA mechanism for something like a vaccine. It’s very different from plasma therapy,” said Dr. Peter Hotez, an infectious disease expert and vaccine researcher at Baylor College of Medicine."

The results demonstrate that our mRNA-based vaccine can help prevent COVID-19 in the majority of people who receive it. This means we are one step closer to potentially providing people around the world with a much-needed breakthrough to help bring an end to this global pandemic. This is a first but critical step in our work to deliver a safe and effective vaccine. It’s important to note that we cannot apply for FDA Emergency Use Authorization based on these efficacy results alone.

Project Veritas: Military Documents About Gain of Function Contradict Fauci Testimony Under Oath: "Military documents state that EcoHealth Alliance approached DARPA in March 2018 seeking funding to conduct gain of function research of bat borne coronaviruses. The proposal, named Project Defuse, was rejected by DARPA over safety concerns and the notion that it violates the gain of function research moratorium.

"The main report regarding the EcoHealth Alliance proposal leaked on the internet a couple of months ago, it has remained unverified until now. Project Veritas has obtained a separate report to the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, written by U.S. Marine Corp Major, Joseph Murphy, a former DARPA Fellow."

“Vaccines did not just pop out of nowhere; the developers were standing on the shoulders of giants,” said Kim-Farley, who has been quoted frequently about that point in news outlets across the nation. “It is remarkable that scientists were able to achieve a vaccine breakthrough within a year, rather than the usual four years. But we identified the genome sequence very quickly and much of the work had already been done in developing the new technology of mRNA vaccines.”

"Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence"

October 17, 2014

US Funding of SARS bioweapon paused due to risk of pandemic. Pause still allowed certain agencies to continue experimentation if it was deemed necessary to national security or public health. Footnote on page 2: "An exception from the [gain-of-function] research pause may be obtained if the head of the USG funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security."

U.S. Government Gain-of-Function Deliberative Process and Research Funding Pause on Selected Gain-of-Function Research Involving Influenza, MERS, and SARS Viruses


Ralph Baric of University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, begins performing tests to see if bat coronavirus could infect humans, and it was discovered that it could.

One of the paper's co-writers, Xing-Ye Gi, has written or co-written multiple papers on SARS, ebola, and coronavirus, and is employed in the "Key Laboratory of Special Pathogens and Biosafety, Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Wuhan, China"

DHS Secretary Lisa Monaco issues stand-down for all US biocontainment facilities; gain-of-function extracted for export to external facilities; one such candidate could be Wuhan Institute of Virology in China: "All United States Government departments and agencies that possess, use, or transfer human, animal, or plant infectious agents or toxins were urged to perform a Safety Stand-Down, to include an immediate sweep of their facilities to verify that all Biological Select Agents and Toxins (BSAT) in their possession were appropriately registered, stored, and disposed of in accordance with applicable regulations."


Peter Daszak: “Then when you get a sequence of a virus, and it looks like a relative of a known nasty pathogen, just like we did with SARS. We found other coronaviruses in bats, a whole host of them, some of them looked very similar to SARS. So we sequenced the spike protein: the protein that attaches to cells. Then we… Well I didn’t do this work, but my colleagues in China did the work. You create pseudo particles, you insert the spike proteins from those viruses, see if they bind to human cells. At each step of this you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic in people. You end up with a small number of viruses that really do look like killers.”

February 12, 2016

"Investors are interested at the height of a crisis, Daszak said. He pointed out that the share value for Roche Holding, a Swiss global health care company, increased during the H1N1 influenza pandemic. Unfortunately, as discussed, the interest and hype are short lived and focused around the outbreak. Daszak shared a story of a publication in Nature describing SARS in China and work done with colleagues from China's government-funded laboratory. The publication garnered no interest from the Chinese government, he said, and no one they talked with from the live animal markets seemed concerned about the findings. What was surprising for Daszak was how little interest was shown in the article from outside governments and the general public. Based on his experience and understanding, significant attention and interest should have come out of that article, but instead only a few virologists were interested in the paper for academic purposes—again showing the strong influence the media can have on public perception of threats.

"Daszak also shared that during the recent Ebola outbreak, EcoHealth Alliance issued a press release and an analysis predicting which countries would be the first to be infected as a result of global air travel.2 The United States was predicted to be one of the top three countries that would receive infected individuals from countries with EVD, and it was predicted the patient would arrive into Dulles, Boston Logan, Newark, and/or JFK airport. They anticipated a lot of attention and coverage, but instead, again, there was very minimal pickup by the media. Daszak reiterated that, until an infectious disease crisis is very real, present, and at an emergency threshold, it is often largely ignored. To sustain the funding base beyond the crisis, he said, we need to increase public understanding of the need for MCMs such as a pan-influenza or pan-coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media, and the economics follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will resp ond if they see profit at the end of process, Daszak stated."

"Seven days before Donald Trump took office, his aides faced a major test: the rapid, global spread of a dangerous virus in cities like London and Seoul, one serious enough that some countries were imposing travel bans. In a sober briefing, Trump’s incoming team learned that the disease was an emerging pandemic — a strain of novel influenza known as H9N2 — and that health systems were crashing in Asia, overwhelmed by the demand."

SPARS Pandemic Exercise

"Center for Health Security releases risk communications exercise scenario focused on medical countermeasures in a pandemic"

"From a government standpoint, the current administration is led by President Randall Archer, who took office in January 2025. Archer served as Vice President under President Jaclyn Bennett (2020-2024), who did not seek a second term due to health concerns." (Page 2)

"Responding to Misinformation or Doubt about an MCM Generated by a Prominent Public Figure: Given the ability of powerful, popular figures to reinforce or to undermine public health messages, what steps might health authorities—at either national or local levels—take to reverse the negative effects of BZee’s unintended linkage of Tuskegee and Corovax..." (Page 28)

"On July 9, 2026, a week before Corovax was released for distribution in the United States, the power grid at the Grand Coulee Dam in eastern Washington State experienced a catastrophic failure. While the event did not destroy any infrastructure or result in any deaths, it did cause widespread power outages in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and British Columbia. Though power was restored within a day of the initial outage, blackouts continued plaguing these areas over the next three weeks." (Page 40)

"The group vigorously debated whether it was appropriate for the President to acknowledge the sacrifice that vaccine recipients had made on behalf of their communities or to console them in their grief over that sacrifice." (Page 64)

"Reports of Corovax side effects began to gain traction. Several parents of children who experienced neurological symptoms after receiving the vaccination sued the federal government and CynBio. The lawsuit was dropped when they learned of compensation funds available through the PREP Act and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund." (Page 75)

"Experts predicted a coronavirus pandemic years ago. Now it's playing out before our eyes"

"The Dark Winter exercise ended on the second day of the simulation after three long sessions—and purposely without resolution. But then, the exercise’s goal was not to predict the future but to dramatize the issues faced by the federal government during a nationwide health crisis. In this it masterfully succeeded, showing that what begins as a localized disease outbreak (of smallpox appearing in Oklahoma City and then in two other densely populated urban areas) can quickly become a crisis that envelopes the entire nation and the world: State borders become chokepoints crowded with those fleeing the disease, Canada and Mexico close their borders with the United States, and foreign nations restrict the travel of American citizens. There is no worst-case scenario, with the collapse of American democracy, but democratic institutions are severely tested and strained. After Dark Winter was concluded, the participants drew clear lessons from the exercise, focusing on the federal government’s lack of preparation for a public health crisis."

"America’s Pandemic War Games Don’t End Well"

"The scenario involves an outbreak of the fictional "SPARS coronavirus," first detected in a US city in the year 2025. Over 3 years, the virus spreads to every state and more than 40 countries, with a fatality rate that depends on local health capacity. An existing drug is repurposed to treat the disease, as federal officials work with the pharmaceutical industry to develop a vaccine. A national vaccination campaign is part of the exercise, which also includes a strain on the health system from patients seeking treatment for serious complications. The exercise walks participants through risk communications, rumor control, interagency message coordination and consistency, issue management, proactive and reactive media relations, cultural competency, and ethical concerns. It is available in a 76-page publication on the center's website."

"The narrative follows the phases of an unfolding public health emergency, in this case the outbreak of a naturally occurring infectious disease, and points out potential communications challenges. It includes nineteen chapters that are divided into two sections: “Response” and “Recovery.” Each chapter covers a stage in the unfolding of a public health crisis, and concludes with a critical communication dilemma and questions that users are encouraged to consider in order to improve emergency response and communication to the public during crises."

A novel strain of a virulent microbe that is easily transmissible between humans continues to be a major threat, with pathogens such as H5N1 and H7N9 influenza and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus having pandemic potential if they were to acquire efficient human-to-human transmissibility."

Among the targets is $252 million in unused funds remaining from the 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic in West Africa that killed more than 11,000 people, far exceeding the combined total cases reported in about 20 previous outbreaks since the 1970s."

He is the youngest victim to die from the virus yet in the county."

May 15, 2020: "The 35-year-old man was found lying dead in a city park in Cortez by police, and Montezuma County Coroner George Deavers determined he had died of acute alcohol poisoning, after finding his blood alcohol concentration at .55, nearly double the amount considered lethal.

Minnesota possibly overcounted COVID deaths

"Flu activity was unusually low throughout the 2020-2021 flu season both in the United States and globally, despite high levels of testing. During September 28, 2020–May 22, 2021 in the United States, 1,675 (0.2%) of 818,939 respiratory specimens tested by U.S. clinical laboratories were positive for an influenza virus. The low level of flu activity during this past season contributed to dramatically fewer flu illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths compared with previous flu seasons. For comparison, during the last three seasons before the pandemic, the proportion of respiratory specimens testing positive for influenza peaked between 26.2% and 30.3%."

"In previous flu seasons, the NCHS surveillance data were used to calculate the percent of all deaths occurring each week that had pneumonia and/or influenza (P&I) listed as a cause of death. Because many COVID-19-related deaths also have pneumonia, COVID-19 coded deaths were added to P&I to create the PIC (pneumonia, influenza, and/or COVID-19) classification.

John Hopkins Center for Health Security on 2020 coronavirus death rates, a study that was later retracted: “These data analyses suggest that in contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States.”

3.2.7 Nursing Home COVID Abuse

"The decision of several governors to ignore federal protocols and instead mandate COVID positive patients be forced back to their nursing homes ended up being a death sentence for tens of thousands of our nation's most vulnerable citizens," Ranking Member Scalise said. "We owe it to those who died and their grieving families to get to the bottom of why these deadly decisions were made by these governors, ensure we stop this from still taking place, and prevent tragedies like these from happening again as we continue to battle this deadly virus."

California Nursing Home COVID Abuse

April 1, 2020: California Governor Gavin Newsome's Department of Public Health issues guidance that "patients hospitalized, or receiving treatment at an alternate care site, with COVID-19 can be discharged to a [skilled nursing facility] when clinically indicated."

New Jersey Nursing Home COVID Abuse

March 31, 2020: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy's Department of Health issues guidance that "No patient/resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the post-acute care setting solely based on a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19. Persons under investigation for COVID-19 who have undergone testing in the hospital shall not be discharged until results are available. Post-acute care facilities are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized patient/resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission."

Hospital Discharges and Admissions to Post-Acute Care Settings

May 18, 2020: Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli tells the NJ 101.5: "We did advise long-term care facilities to readmit their residents … if they had appropriate PPE and appropriate staffing and the ability … to separate COVID-19 patients from non-COVID-19 patients . . . If the long-term care facility was not able to do that, they should not have readmitted."

A timeline of the Cuomo nursing home patient abuse controversy

March 7, 2020: At Novel Coronavirus Briefing, Governor Cuomo Declares State of Emergency to Contain Spread of Virus

March 25, 2020: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issues directive requiring nursing homes and long-term care facilities to take COVID-19 patients from hospitals: "During this global health emergency, all NHs must comply with the expedited receipt of residents returning from hospitals to NHs. Residents are deemed appropriate for return to a NH upon a determination by the hospital physician or designee that the resident is medically stable for return. . . . No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission."

Advisory: Hospital Discharges and Admissions to Nursing Homes

April 17, 2020: "Cuomo was asked Friday why the public wasn’t informed sooner of nursing home fatalities at specific facilities, particularly when at least 10 homes have seen at least 30 deaths. . . . He said “concerns of long-term care providers were not fully recognized” when the Health Department issued the advisory. It prevented nursing homes from denying admission to a hospital patient with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection."

May 10, 2020: Governor Cuomo amends executive order from March and requires hospital patients to have a negative covid test before being admitted back to a nursing home.

June 9, 2020: "The DOH didn’t collect statistics on nursing-home COVID-19 mortalities until mid-April, after the governor was pressured for the information. He then required the facilities to conduct a frenzied review of all deaths from the beginning of March over the course of a single weekend afternoon. To date, the nursing-home COVID mortality count is nearly 6,000; however, the real number is likely much higher. Many residents who weren’t tested for COVID-19 died suddenly during those early weeks, without the typical respiratory symptoms that would result in their deaths being labeled “COVID presumed.”"

"Gov. Cuomo is still failing New York’s nursing homes" Elaine Healy, Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine, in the New York Post, June 9, 2020

July 6, 2020: "According to data submitted by nursing homes, in many cases under the penalty of perjury, approximately 37,500 nursing home staff members — one in four of the state's approximately 158,000 nursing home workers — were infected with COVID-19 between March and early June 2020. Of the 37,500 nursing home staff infected, nearly 7,000 of them were working in facilities in the month of March"

New York State Department of Health Issues Report On COVID-19 In Nursing Homes: Data Indicates COVID-19 Was Introduced Into Nursing Homes by Infected Staff

August 12, 2020: "New York State Health Commissioner Howard Zucker . . . said the Health Department has provided unprecedented transparency by making public information on the deaths . . . That didn’t sit well with Senate and Assembly lawmakers at the joint hearing who said the Health Department's statistic of more than 6,400 nursing home deaths due to Covid-19 represented an intentional undercounting because infected nursing home residents who died at hospitals were not included. “I will not provide information that is not absolutely accurate. I will get you that number,” Zucker said at different points during the hearing"

"Preliminary data obtained by OAG suggests that many nursing home residents died from COVID-19 in hospitals after being transferred from their nursing homes, which is not reflected in DOH's published total nursing home death data," a statement from Attorney General Letitia James' Office said. "Preliminary data also reflects apparent underreporting to DOH by some nursing homes of resident deaths occurring in nursing homes," the statement said. In a statement, New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker denied there was an undercount."

"In August 2020, FAIR Health found a 334% spike in intentional self-harm claims among 13–18 year olds in the Northeast compared to the same month in 2019. Nationally self-harm medical claim lines nearly doubled for this group in both March and April, while claim lines for overdoses as a percentage of all medical claim lines increased 95% and 119% percent respectively."

"Indeed, during the first eight months of 2020, suicides in Los Alamos (NM) tripled while Fresno (CA) numbers jumped 70% in June 2020 compared to the same month the previous year. Even the CDC acknowledges a 31% increase in the proportion of mental health-related ER visits for 12 to 17 year olds between March and October last year compared to the previous year."

California doctors remark they've seen more deaths from suicide than COVID-19 since lockdowns began:

"The head of the trauma in the department believes mental health is suffering so much, it is time to end the shelter-in-place order. "Personally I think it's time," said Dr. Mike deBoisblanc. "I think, originally, this (the shelter-in-place order) was put in place to flatten the curve and to make sure hospitals have the resources to take care of COVID patients.We have the current resources to do that and our other community health is suffering." The numbers are unprecedented, he said. "We've never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time," he said. "I mean we've seen a year's worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.""

3.9.1 USA Quarantine Camps

CDC Quarantine Camps

CDC Guidance on U.S. Quarantine Stations with map showing locations: "CDC has the legal authority to detain any person who may have an infectious disease that is specified by Executive Order to be quarantinable."

From the 2017 CDC quarantine ruling:

"Commenters stated that individuals must receive notice of their suspected exposure and be permitted to speak with legal counsel or have legal counsel appointed to them."

"It also includes a provision requiring that individuals apply for a travel permit if they are under a Federal quarantine, isolation, or conditional release order (unless the specific travel is authorized by the Federal conditional release order) or if a State or local public health department requests CDC assistance in enforcing a State or local quarantine or isolation order."

"These determinations are made when the CDC considers the need to apprehend or examine an individual for potential infection with a quarantinable communicable disease."

"The final rule also authorizes public health monitoring through electronic or internet-based means of communication for individuals under a Federal conditional release order who are reasonably believed to be exposed to or nfected with a quarantinable communicable disease.

"This would include communication through email and webcam application tools. Finally, while neither modifying nor authorizing additional criminal penalties for violations of quarantine rules and regulations, this final rule updates regulatory language to align with existing criminal penalties set forth in statute."

New York Times Article on this Quarantine Ruling:

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new regulations this month that give it broad authority to quarantine Americans. The rules outline for the first time how the federal government can restrict interstate travel during a health crisis, and they establish in-house oversight of whether someone should be detained, without providing a clear and direct path to challenge a quarantine order in federal court."

"the new rules give the C.D.C. significant in-house oversight of the decision to quarantine, with up to three layers of internal agency review. This internal review has no explicit time limit and could easily stretch on for weeks while a healthy person languishes in quarantine."

"the C.D.C. now has clear legal authority to take over the quarantine role from states in many cases, and to restrict interstate travel. This raises questions not just of federalism but also of practicality."

3.10 Whistleblowers and Stakeholders

3.10.1 Experts with Various Vaccine Warnings

COVID-19 A Pandemic Of Fear "Manufactured" By Authorities: Yale Epidemiologist

"You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.”

Former Vice-President of Pfizer, Michael Yeadon

Dr. Roger Hodkinson, a top pathologist, says "masks are utterly useless" and that coronavirus is "the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public . . . There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous. Masks are utterly useless...they are simply virtue signalling."

President of Bulgarian Pathology Association: "no one has has died of the coronavirus," calls the WHO a “criminal medical organization” for creating worldwide fear and chaos without providing objectively verifiable proof of a pandemic."

"Strasbourg, 04.06.2010 – The handling of the H1N1 pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), EU agencies and national governments led to a “waste of large sums of public money, and unjustified scares and fears about the health risks faced by the European public”"

"The report, prepared by Paul Flynn (United Kingdom, SOC) and approved today by the committee ahead of a plenary debate at the end of this month, says there was “overwhelming evidence that the seriousness of the pandemic was vastly overrated by WHO”, resulting in a distortion of public health priorities."

"Presenting his report, Mr Flynn told the committee: “this was a pandemic that never really was”, and described the vaccination programme as “placebo medicine on a large scale”"

4 Vaccine Technology

4.1 mRNA Vaccines

4.1.1 Overview of mRNA Vaccine Technology

Source: mRNA vaccines — a new era in vaccinology, April 2018

Bill Gates Explains mRNA Injection

"mRNA vaccines work by introducing a piece of mRNA that corresponds to a viral protein, usually a small piece of a protein found on the virus’s outer membrane. (Individuals who get an mRNA vaccine are not exposed to the virus, nor can they become infected by the vaccine.)"

Source: What are mRNA vaccines and how do they work?

"Messenger RNA instructions are timed to self-destruct, like a disappearing text or snapchat message. Structural features of the mRNA – the U in the code, its single-stranded shape, ribose sugar and its specific sequence – ensure that the mRNA has a short half-life. These features combine to enable the message to be “read,” translated into proteins, and then quickly destroyed – within minutes for certain proteins that need to be tightly controlled, or up to a few hours for others."

Source: What is mRNA? The messenger molecule that’s been in every living cell for billions of years is the key ingredient in some COVID-19 vaccines

4.1.2 mRNA Concerns

"SARS-CoV-2 RNA can be reverse-transcribed and integrated into the genome of the infected cell"

Source: MIT, Reverse-transcribed SARS-CoV-2 RNA can integrate into the genome of cultured human cells and can be expressed in patient-derived tissues, May 2021

"we provide a plausible scenario, supported by previously established pathways for transformation and transport of genetic material, whereby injected mRNA could ultimately be incorporated into germ cell DNA for transgenerational transmission." "We also present a brief review of studies supporting the potential for spike protein “shedding”, transmission of the protein from a vaccinated to an unvaccinated person, resulting in symptoms induced in the latter."

Source: Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines Against COVID-19

Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor and patent-holder for the mRNA tech used in the injections, has said, "one of my concerns are that the government is not being transparent with us about what those risks are. And so, I'm of the opinion that people have the right to decide whether to accept a vaccine or not, especially since these are experimental vaccines." Dr. Malone went on to say that, for younger people especially, "that the benefits probably don't outweigh the risks" and "the risk-benefit ratio for those 18 and below doesn't justify vaccines, and there's a pretty good chance that it doesn't justify vaccination in these very young adults."

Pfizer's mRNA safety studies aren't complete until 2022-2023. The final reports on the studies aren't due until 2023-2025. The approval and emergency use authorization were both rushed under Operation Warpspeed.

4.1.3 mRNA Vaccines Created in Just Hours

"The co-founder of BioNTech designed the coronavirus vaccine it made with Pfizer in just a few hours over a single day"


"Moderna's groundbreaking coronavirus vaccine was designed in just 2 days"

4.1.4 History of mRNA Experiments

Gene editing has been discussed as an asset to medical treatment for years. Tal Zaks, Moderna CTO, explains the history and progress as of 2017, calling it "hacking the software of life" and discussing how mRNA can alter DNA: “In every cell there’s this thing called messenger RNA or mRNA for short, that transmits the critical information from the DNA in our genes to the protein, which is really the stuff we’re all made out of. This is the critical information that determines what the cell will do. So we think about it as an operating system. …. So if you could actually change that, … if you could introduce a line of code, or change a line of code, it turns out, that has profound implications for everything, from the flu to cancer.”

"The researchers found that the genetically modified mice injected with the spike protein exhibited COVID-19-like symptoms that included severe inflammation, an influx of white blood cells into their lungs and evidence of a cytokine storm—an immune response in which the body starts to attack its own cells and tissues rather than just fighting off the virus."

Furthermore, our RNA-Seq analysis revealed that HEK293 cells exposed to graphene oxide significantly altered the expression of genes involved in multiple apoptosis-related biological pathways. Moreover, graphene oxide exposure perturbed the expression of key transcription factors, promoting these apoptosis-related pathways by regulating their downstream genes. Our analysis provides mechanistic insights into how exposure to graphene oxide induces changes in cellular responses and massive cell death in HEK293 cells."

"Worldwide cases of pericarditis, shingles, pneumonia, blood clots in the extremities and brain, Bell’s Palsy, vaginal bleeding and miscarriages have been reported in persons who are near persons who have been vaccinated. In addition, we know the spike proteins can cross the blood brain barrier, unlike traditional vaccines."

"The continued rollout of COVID-19 vaccines moves along without due consideration of patient side effects and post-inoculation complications. AFLDS calls on state and federal health regulators to release more adverse-event-related data and conduct additional follow-up studies before the FDA fully licenses any of the vaccines currently administered under emergency use authorization. The growing body of evidence is too compelling to ignore."

"There are two major neurological concerns related to the COVID vaccines. These are the spike proteins and the lipid nanoparticles which carry the mRNA into the cell. They are both capable of passing through the “blood-brain barrier” which typically keeps the brain and spinal cord completely insulated from entrants into the body. There simply has not been enough time to know what brain problems and how often a brain problem will develop from that. There is concern amongst many scientists for prion disease (neurodegenerative brain disease)."

Thousands of Reports of Menstrual Irregularities, Reproductive Dysfunction Following COVID Vaccines

"Some people are reporting abnormal periods after a COVID-19 vaccine. U. of I. professor is looking for answers."

Dr. Christiane Northrup comments:

-The entire inside of uterus can slough off in certain women affected by the vaccine.

-Polysorbate 80 is found in these shots, which is known to affect ovarian function in rats.

-Adverse reaction reports include swelling of genitals and breast irregularities, but also swelling of the scrotum and erectile dysfunction in men.

-We know the spike protein antibody cross-reacts with Syncitin-1 and -2, which are proteins essential for the placenta and for maintaining a pregnancy.

"There are many reasons vaccination could alter menstruation. . . . Since the cycle is supported by the immune system at every turn, it is possible that the vaccines, which are designed to ignite an immune response, temporarily change the normal course of events."

Commentary from Dr. Jesse Santiano: "Comparing the vaccinated (4.1 per million) and the unvaccinated (0.41per million) who did not get the COVID-19, there is a 10-fold increase in getting CVT in those who got vaccinated"

"Doctors have reported that the blood of COVID-19 patients congeals easily, which makes it difficult to keep medical tubing open to deliver drugs and fluids. Blood clots in COVID-19 patients also seem to put them at higher risk for problems like heart attacks and strokes. In fact, when viewed under a microscope, the lungs of COVID-19 patients were peppered with tiny dark micro clots. Patients who had died of the flu also had these clots, but they were 9 times as common in the patients who died of COVID-19."

"Remarkably, even in patients who have suffered from an asymptomatic or mild SARS-CoV-2 infection, after 40 days post-infection they still exhibit a significantly raised group of biomarkers involved in inflammation and the stress response. This initial data using a custom designed inflammatory marker panel applied to mildly affected patients identifies potential drug targets, provides insight into the post infection inflammatory response. This approach using targeted proteomic technology has potential for application on further well-defined sample cohorts to understand what is abnormal about post infection inflammatory response in ‘long covid’ patients."

5.2 Vaccine Deaths

5.2.1 Death Reports

"Thousands more people than usual are dying ... but it’s not from Covid"

"A novel best-case scenario cost-benefit analysis showed very conservatively that there are five times the number of deaths attributable to each inoculation vs those attributable to COVID-19 in the most vulnerable 65+ demographic. The risk of death from COVID-19 decreases drastically as age decreases, and the longer-term effects of the inoculations on lower age groups will increase their risk-benefit ratio, perhaps substantially."

Source: Why are we vaccinating children against COVID-19?


Official government document estimates over 150,000 vaccine deaths in America.

"Between Aug. 5 and Aug. 26 – 25 unvaccinated individuals, six partly vaccinated individuals and 92 fully vaccinated individuals died as a result of COVID-19. Putting it into perspective, about 80 percent of people who get the shot die of COVID-19 compared to only 20 percent of those who do not."

Norway did a study on 100 nursing home resident deaths and found that 10% of the deaths were due the vaccine: "Of these 100 reported cases, we believe it is highly likely that the vaccination led to death occurring earlier than it would have otherwise for ten nursing home patients."

Norway source:

Israeli People Committee: "there has never been a vaccine that has harmed as many people."

"We received 288 death reports in proximity to vaccination (90% up to 10 days after the vaccination), 64% of those were men . . . according to data provided by the Ministry of Health, only 45 deaths in Israel were vaccine related.”

"According to Central Bureau of Statistics data during January-February 2021, at the peak of the Israeli mass vaccination campaign, there was a 22% increase in overall mortality in Israel compared with the previous year."

"In fact, January-February 2021 have been the deadliest months in the last decade, with the highest overall mortality rates compared to corresponding months in the last 10 years."

"Statistical analysis of information from the Central Bureau of Statistics, combined with information from the Ministry of Health, leads to the conclusion that the mortality rate amongst the vaccinated is estimated at about 1: 5000 (1: 13000 at ages 20-49, 1: 6000 at ages 50-69, 1: 1600 at ages 70+)."
