COVID-19 pediatric deaths after data correction

Posted by M. C. on March 21, 2022

Just the data used to create fear and force child vaccination. No biggee. What else is out there?

Blame it on the algorithm. Not Pfizer, Fauci’s nor Moderna’s bottom line.

https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/cdc-reports-fewer-covid-19-pediatric-deaths-after-data-correction-2022-03-18/

March 18 (Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 966,575 deaths from COVID-19 on Friday after it corrected the data earlier this week, which reduced the death tallies in all age-groups, including children.

The health agency, in a statement to Reuters, said it made adjustments to its COVID Data Tracker’s mortality data on March 14 because its algorithm was accidentally counting deaths that were not COVID-19-related.

The adjustment resulted in removal of 72,277 deaths previously reported across 26 states, including 416 pediatric deaths, CDC said.

The reduction cut the CDC’s estimate of deaths in children by 24% to 1,341 as of March 18.

Children accounted for about 19% of all COVID-19 cases, but less than 0.26% of cases resulted in death, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, which summarizes state-based data.

Americans have been polarized over the mitigation measures the CDC recommended for schools during the pandemic from urging schools to be remote, require masks and set up social distancing measures. It now advises that for most of the country, children should be in school and can be without masks.

The number of U.S. children with COVID-19 rose sharply during the Omicron variant wave due to its increased transmissibility and low vaccination rates among children 5-11 who are eligible for the vaccine. Children ages 0-4 are not eligible for the vaccine in the United States.

Wake-Up Call

Posted by M. C. on February 8, 2022

We now enter a period of danger as the sleepwalkers of America awaken from their induced consensus trance and begin to understand how they were harmed, swindled, and robbed by a corrupt, criminal officialdom. It will hurt badly because the public wanted so desperately to believe that vaccines would make them safe from the mysteriously conjured Covid-19 virus — and, more than that, would cure their gnawing anxiety over the wreckage of American life caused by what appears to be leadership hostage to sinister forces.

I must say, I believe the truth of our predicament will grow a whole lot weirder as we stumble into springtime. The weirdest part of all will be when America learns exactly who and what have been the prime generators of our disorder. The disillusionment will be cosmic.

“Look, There Is No Federal Solution”: Biden Backtracks On Vow To ‘Shut Down’ Covid-19 | ZeroHedge

Posted by M. C. on December 28, 2021

When the lies and incompetence become too obvious, pass the buck and make it someone else’s fault.

On October 22, 2020, then-candidate Joe Biden vowed to “shut down the virus, not the country.“14 months later, now-President Biden just admitted that there’s no ‘federal solution’ to the pandemic, and that it’s up to individual states to do what he promised.

Look, there is no federal solution,” he said during a call with state governors. “This gets solved at state level … and that ultimately gets down to where the rubber meets the road, and that’s where the patient is in need of help — or preventing the need for help.””My message to the governors is simple: if you need something, say something. We’re going to have your back in any way we can,” Biden added.Watch:

(h/t Becker News) Things already weren’t looking good on the ‘shutting down’ front last week…

Biden’s admission comes days after a Vanity Fair report which revealed that the Biden admin rejected an October proposal to provide rapid at-home tests to Americans before the holidays, allowing them to screen themselves at will and thereby help reduce transmission.

The plan, in effect, was a blueprint for how to avoid what is happening at this very moment—endless lines of desperate Americans clamoring for tests in order to safeguard holiday gatherings, just as COVID-19 is exploding again. Yesterday, President Biden told David Muir of ABC News, “I wish I had thought about ordering” 500 million at-home tests “two months ago.” But the proposal shared at the meeting in October, disclosed here for the first time, included a “Bold Plan for Impact” and a provision for “Every American Household to Receive Free Rapid Tests for the Holidays/New Year.” -VF

In short, Biden isn’t even trying to ‘shut down’ the virusAdding insult to injury, White House Press Secretary scoffed at the idea of nationwide home tests three weeks ago.”Should we just send one to every American?”

Astounding.

20 Years Of Government-Sponsored Tyranny: The Rise Of The Security-Industrial Complex From 9/11 To COVID-19 | ZeroHedge

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in – and the West in general – into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”– Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN

What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties.

We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.Our losses are mounting with every passing day.What began with the post-9/11 passage of the USA Patriot Act  has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse.The citizenry’s unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security has resulted in a society where the nation has been locked down into a militarized, mechanized, hypersensitive, legalistic, self-righteous, goose-stepping antithesis of every principle upon which this nation was founded.Set against a backdrop of government surveillance, militarized police, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, eminent domain, overcriminalization, armed surveillance drones, whole body scanners, stop and frisk searches, police violence and the like—all of which have been sanctioned by Congress, the White House and the courts—our constitutional freedoms have been steadily chipped away at, undermined, eroded, whittled down, and generally discarded.The rights embodied in the Constitution, if not already eviscerated, are on life support.Free speech, the right to protest, the right to challenge government wrongdoing, due process, a presumption of innocence, the right to self-defense, accountability and transparency in government, privacy, press, sovereignty, assembly, bodily integrity, representative government: all of these and more have become casualties in the government’s war on the American people, a war that has grown more pronounced since 9/11.Indeed, since the towers fell on 9/11, the U.S. government has posed a greater threat to our freedoms than any terrorist, extremist or foreign entity ever could.While nearly 3,000 people died in the 9/11 attacks, the U.S. government and its agents have easily killed at least ten times that number of civilians in the U.S. and abroad since 9/11 through its police shootings, SWAT team raids, drone strikes and profit-driven efforts to police the globe, sell weapons to foreign nations (which too often fall into the hands of terrorists), and foment civil unrest in order to keep the security industrial complex gainfully employed.The American people have been treated like enemy combatants, to be spied on, tracked, scanned, frisked, searched, subjected to all manner of intrusions, intimidated, invaded, raided, manhandled, censored, silenced, shot at, locked up, denied due process, and killed.In allowing ourselves to be distracted by terror drills, foreign wars, color-coded warnings, pandemic lockdowns and other carefully constructed exercises in propaganda, sleight of hand, and obfuscation, we failed to recognize that the U.S. government—the government that was supposed to be a “government of the people, by the people, for the people”—has become the enemy of the people.Consider that the government’s answer to every problem has been more government—at taxpayer expense—and less individual liberty.Every crisis—manufactured or otherwise—since the nation’s early beginnings has become a make-work opportunity for the government to expand its reach and its power at taxpayer expense while limiting our freedoms at every turn: The Great Depression. The World Wars. The 9/11 terror attacks. The COVID-19 pandemic.

Regulatory Capture in the Age of COVID-19 – Liam’s Blog

Posted by M. C. on September 1, 2021

https://williamcosgroveblog.wordpress.com/2021/08/28/regulatory-capture-in-the-age-of-covid-19/

By Liam Cosgrove (https://twitter.com/cosgrove_iv)

Our healthcare system is broken, a fact nobody would have disputed in pre-COVID days. Regulatory capture is a reality, and the pharmaceutical industry is fraught with examples. Yet we trusted private-public partnerships to find an optimal solution to a global pandemic, assuming a crisis would bring out the best in historically corrupt institutions.

Here is a brief list of less-than-savory behavior demonstrated by our titans of healthcare: 

  • Pfizer and J&J plead guilty to “misbranding with the intent to defraud or mislead” and paying “kickbacks to health care providers to induce them to prescribe [their] drugs”, resulting in fines of $2.3 billion in 2009 and $2.2 billion in 2013, respectively. 
  • Pfizer settled another lawsuit for “manipulating studies” and “suppressing negative findings” just a few years later. 
  • Moderna has never developed an approved drug yet one of their board members was placed in charge of Operation Warp Speed. This certainly is unrelated to the fact that they received the most federal vaccine R&D funding and have received over $6 billion from our government since the start of the pandemic.
  • Gilead Sciences paid $97 million in fines because it “illegally used a non-profit foundation as a conduit to pay the Medicare co-pays for its own drug”.
  • In 2005, AstraZeneca’s drug Crestor was shown to be linked to a life-threatening muscle disease while the company withheld evidence of this and two dozen other effects from the public.
  • In 2012, GlaxoSmithKline paid $3 billion in fines as it “failed to include certain safety data” relating to their drug, since labeled to be connected to heart failure and attacks.

Thankfully our public health guardians are in place to protect us from the greed and deceit of the private sector, right? Wrong. Enjoy another brief list:

  • FDA worked behind the scenes with company Biogen to alter previously conducted trials of their $56,000 per year Alzheimer’s treatment, and “by removing the subset of people for whom the drug didn’t work, they found a slight statistical effect in favor of the drug.” Even after doing this, an advisory committee voted 10-0 against approving the drug. The FDA approved the drug anyways, causing three committee members to resign.
  • In that case, the third-party advisors did the right thing. This is not always the case… A study by Science Magazinetracking 107 FDA advisors for four years, found that 62% received money from related drug makers with 25% receiving over $100k and 6% receiving over $1 million. It only takes a few corrupt advisors to fix a panel and feign medical consensus.
  • The WHO has come to be dominated by China over the last 17 years by bribing poor nations and altering the organization’s voting structure to ensure their candidates obtain high positions (most notablydirector-general). The WHO parroted false claims made by the CCP in Jan 2020 that COVID-19 had “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission” (still on Twitter!), despite receiving contrary evidence from Taiwanese health monitors in December 2019 and during which time Chinese hospitals were overrun, requiring mass disinfections across villages:

Freedom in the Time of Covid-19 – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on August 19, 2021

Resistance even by a persistent and passionate minority can topple the mandates. But it must be resistance so ubiquitous and so loud and so serious that the government fears the people.

If you want to wear a mask, wear it. If you want the vaccines, get them. But keep the government off the backs of those don’t.

Then our freedoms will be secure.

“When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.” — Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

As the world watches the disastrous ending of America’s nearly 20-year occupation of Afghanistan, we cannot lose sight of what is happening here, just below the media radar.

I hope I am wrong, yet I see a time of great suffering coming soon for those of us who cherish, articulate and defend personal liberty in a free society.

I hear it coming in the media drumbeat over the spread of the delta variant of COVID-19 and the demonization of those who exercise their inalienable right to dominion over their own bodies by declining to receive a novel and largely experimental vaccine.

I feel it in the subtle and not-so-subtle hints of politicians attempting to discern which way the winds of change are blowing and beginning to conclude privately that the direction of those winds is toward another sheepish American acceptance of repressive governmental measures in the name of public health.

And I sense it in the outcomes and judicial rationales of the early stages of litigations in which numerous state judges and state supreme court justices in the past week have purported to find constitutional, and thus recognized, the decisions of officials in the executive branch of government — the branch that exists to enforce the laws that the legislative branch has written — to write their own laws, call them “mandates,” and use force to compel businesses to close and healthy folks to wear masks on public and private property.

Who’s Afraid of Fort Detrick Probe? – Sputnik International

Posted by M. C. on July 29, 2021

In 2001, when a disgruntled researcher is believed to have killed five people by mailing deadly anthrax spores it was Fort Detrick that was the origin of the lethal material. 

However, the network of secretive US biowarfare laboratories is also infamous for safety violations and accidents. In August 2019, Fort Detrick was shut down abruptly for several months when its wastewater decontamination process failed. 

https://sputniknews.com/columnists/202107261083464841-whos-afraid-of-fort-detrick-probe/

by Finian Cunningham

An international online petition calling for an investigation into a US military laboratory and the possible origin of Covid-19 was hacked at the weekend. The hackers were reportedly based in the US.

Fort Detrick in Maryland is the center of American biowarfare research. It is just one of the hundreds of such infectious disease laboratories located across the United States. During the Cold War, Fort Detrick was the main site for experimenting with lethal pathogens, including viruses causing deadly influenza.

In 2001, when a disgruntled researcher is believed to have killed five people by mailing deadly anthrax spores it was Fort Detrick that was the origin of the lethal material.

However, the network of secretive US biowarfare laboratories is also infamous for safety violations and accidents. In August 2019, Fort Detrick was shut down abruptly for several months when its wastewater decontamination process failed. 

It is not unreasonable to call for an investigation into the practices and records at the Maryland center to ascertain if it had any connection to the Covid-19 pandemic which has so far killed over four million people worldwide and more than 600,000 in the United States alone.

Of course, American politicians and media dismiss the appeal as “disinformation” put out by Russia and China. Americans have accused China of being the origin of the pandemic after the first cases of Covid-19 were detected in the city of Wuhan at the end of 2019. More sinisterly, the Wuhan virology institute has been fingered as the source of the virus even though an international survey by the World Health Organization concluded such a release was “extremely unlikely”. 

Scientific consensus contends that the virus evolved naturally and was most likely transmitted to humans from animals. 

US President Joe Biden has given credibility to the conspiracy theory unleashed by his predecessor Donald Trump that the Wuhan laboratory was the origin of the Covid-19 virus. Biden has tasked his intelligence agencies to look into the claims. They are due to report back on their findings next month. Washington berates China for not being transparent about its laboratory and is demanding that Beijing open up its facility for inspection. The Americans claim China was not fully open with WHO investigators who cleared the lab as not being the origin of the virus. 

But two can play that game. If the Americans accuse China and demand an investigation into secret laboratories then why can’t China level the same at the US?

It is still not known where the Covid-19 pandemic originated. It may take years to determine that. But what is certainly hindering an answer is the politicization of the disease. Washington is using it to smear China while hypocritically suppressing any questions about its own conduct.

The early cases of Covid-19 were detected in Wuhan. But who is to say that cases may have existed elsewhere but were simply not detected and reported in other countries? The US had an unprecedented surge in influenza deaths in 2019 before the Wuhan cases. Were some of these misdiagnosed as flu instead of Covid-19?

Fort Detrick has a notorious history of safety failures. It works on a wide range of biowarfare pathogens with little public oversight. And it was shut down in mid-2019 for reasons that are not clear to the public. 

It is therefore reasonable for China to demand a probe into the American facility. This is not just a matter of “counter-propaganda” to turn the tables over American speculation about the Wuhan institute. There are empirical grounds for suspecting Fort Detrick as possibly having a role in the origin of the pandemic. 

An online petition was started in China earlier this month demanding the WHO launch an investigation into Fort Detrick. It had gathered over 10 million signatures when the online site was hacked into at the weekend. Apparently, the petition was defended by its cybersecurity system and continues to operate. 

According to Chinese reports the hackers were identified as having computer server addresses located in the US. If that is confirmed then the suspicions around the murky practices of Fort Detrick become more acute. It looks like the Americans are afraid to permit a probe into the site, even though they make high-handed accusations and demands on China over tenuous claims about Wuhan.

Erie Times E-Edition Article-Concern grows over COVID-19 Delta variant

Posted by M. C. on July 9, 2021

Virus variants tend to be less strong, in this case confirmed in the adjacent “newspaper” article. Why all the fear mongering?

Notice we never see data for how many are asymptomatic, mildly affected nor hospitalized for Delta. Why confuse the unwashed masses with facts. If people were dropping dead we would hear about it.

When roughly 80% are asymptomatic and 15% mildly effected by original Covid (too late for the gene therapy), why push for injecting chemicals to those already blessed with natural immunity? Presumably those with natural immunity would not have to wear masks as is recommended for the experimental cocktails.

Some of us prefer organic over processed.

https://erietimes-pa-app.newsmemory.com/?publink=01f9b8281_1345e39

Sam Ruland York Daily Record USA TODAY NETWORK – PENNSYLVANIA The future of the pandemic might rest with the variants of the coronavirus.

One danger is that the virus could mutate into a vaccine-resistant variant. But if enough people get vaccinated, the virus has less opportunity to spread and therefore less chance to mutate.

Pennsylvania has been tracking the variants, conducting random surveillance on positive COVID-19 tests to see what percentage of cases coming back positive are due to a variant strain or the original COVID-19 strain.

The most recent update from the CDC shows that as of June 29, there were 1,259 sequences over a four-week period in Pennsylvania that contain strains of the virus that the federal agency has deemed ‘variants of concern.’ They are capable of increased transmission and might cause a more severe disease or evade vaccines or available treatments.

The delta variant, first identified in India, has now spread to more than 60 countries and accounts for somewhere between 6% to 18% of current infections in the United States. Its rapid spread has led the CDC to upgrade it from a variant of interest to a variant of concern.

In Pennsylvania, the delta variant’s prevalence remains low, accounting for only 1% of positive sequenced cases.

That could be the tip of the iceberg, however, given that the state does not have the capacity to test every sample for a variant.

Watching for variants is a crucial part of preventing outbreaks, said Dr. Frederic Bushman, co-director of the Penn Center for Research on Coronaviruses and Other Emerging Pathogens.

‘We have to keep an eye on it,’ he said. ‘We shouldn’t panic because the vaccine is good right now and if we can suppress, which is happening right now, in terms of the amount of people getting infected … we’re safe. If we can’t push that further down, then we have to be concerned.’

Where Pennsylvania stands with vaccinations About 63% of eligible Pennsylvania residents have been fully vaccinated,

according to the state’s vaccine dashboard . Nationally, more than 55% of the population over 12, the eligibility age, have been vaccinated,

according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As the percentage of the vaccinated population has increased, cases have declined, just as public health officials said they would. The seven-day average for new cases across the state fell below 200 last week — a nearly 80% decrease from the previous month, according to state statistics. Deaths now average 10 a day, an all-time pandemic low.

But scientists fear what might happen if the virus has the latitude to spread and mutate. Viruses do regularly change over time, but many of these mutations will not catch hold in the viral population. They monitor the variants circulating to make sure none have become resistant to the vaccines, treatments or changes in any way that could impact disease transmission or severity.

If the number of vaccinated people testing positive suddenly increased, public health officials would want to know if they all were being infected with a specific variant, especially if all the cases were connected or occurring in the same city.

With an eye to determining if variants are responsible for so-called breakthrough cases, in which vaccinated people become infected, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has asked providers to send samples from vaccinated patients who have been hospitalized for COVID-19 infections.

The state tests a fraction of all positive cases to determine if variants were behind the infection, though the percentage of samples both in Pennsylvania and across the world that test positive for a variant continues to increase.

Deadlier variants could emerge as virus mutates, evolves The more SARS-CoV-2 circulates, the more opportunities it has to evolve, the World Health Organization said.

As more people are vaccinated against COVID-19, the mutations that are the most transmissible are the most likely to survive.

‘It’s that whole survival of the fittest really playing out, really right before our eyes,’ Bushman said. ‘There’s kind of a race with these variants to find the next susceptible person.’

Right now, the most dominant variant in Pennsylvania is the B.1.1.7 strain of the new coronavirus that was originally detected in the U.K. It is also known as the alpha variant.

‘We do know from multiple studies now that the delta variant is even more transmissible and that’s why we think it will become more prevalent in Pennsylvania and maybe as prevalent as the U.K. variant,’ he said.

More vaccinations are the best way to slow that down.

Unvaccinated people at higher risk Based on sequencing results, the delta variant in Pennsylvania is mostly affecting unvaccinated people.

‘Areas that have lower vaccination rates are going to be more susceptible to the delta variant. It is more transmissible than the other variants that we’ve seen or COVID-19 in general, and it really is impacting unvaccinated individuals,’ Bushman said.

‘That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to get vaccinated, because these individuals are highly at risk for getting the delta variant of COVID-19.’

About 45% of all the known delta variant cases in the country have been in people ages 20 to 44, likely both because that age group has a lower overall vaccination rate and because they tend to be social, he said.

A study from Public Health England found that two doses of the Pfizer vaccine were 88% effective against symptomatic disease from the delta variant. After just one dose, it was 33% effective. Moderna is a similar type of vaccine to Pfizer.

Not a lot of information is out yet about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the delta variant, but experts say it likely provides some level of protection.

The best protection right now is to get fully vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna), Bushman said. Fully vaccinated means two weeks out from the second dose.

‘With delta being present in Pennsylvania, we know that presence is just going to continue to increase, so get vaccinated — that by far is the best thing you can do to protect yourself against all the variants.’

Perspex Screens Installed To Stop COVID May Have Actually Increased Its Spread, UK Govt Report Finds | ZeroHedge

Posted by M. C. on June 17, 2021

A leaked Whitehall document seen by Politico suggests that perspex screens installed to stop the transmission of COVID-19 may actually have increased its spread.

https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/perspex-screens-installed-stop-covid-may-have-actually-increased-its-spread-uk-govt-report

Tyler Durden's Photoby Tyler Durden

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

Businesses and schools were told by the government to install the screens as a condition of re-opening after the first lockdown and they were widely used by ‘essential’ shops throughout the entire period.

Politico’s Alex Wickham writes that the perspex screens could be about to be scrapped given new information the government has received on their efficacy.

“Ministers are also being advised that those perspex screens that have appeared in some offices and restaurants are unlikely to have any benefit in terms of preventing transmission,” states the report.

“Problems include them not being positioned correctly, with the possibility that they actually increase the risk of transmission by blocking airflow. Therefore there is clear guidance to ministers that these perspex screens should be scrapped.”

Despite the report, government ministers say there is no plan to change advice on installing the screens in businesses.

What other COVID-19 measures put in place to fight the spread of the virus have been utterly useless or actually made it worse?

A study on the effectiveness of face masks involving 6,000 participants in Denmark found “there was no statistically significant difference between those who wore masks and those who did not when it came to being infected by Covid-19.”
