The NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has just declared she would not want to be in the same room as an unvaccinated person, thereby declaring she would not want to be caught in the vicinity of millions of her fellow citizens, the ones who voted her into power. Always hapless public messengers, with overpaid and utterly incompetent public relations flacks at the helm, Australian governments state and federal are walking into a wall of pain.
With the introduction of vaccine passports just round the corner and an unprecedented medical apartheid about to become law in Australia, with hundreds of military personnel on the streets amid the most over the top policing ever witnessed, the situation grows more tense and more desperate by the hour.
It’s not just Australia’s bogans and rough heads who are against forced vaccination, the so-called “anti-vaxxers” being ridiculed by government and their bum chums in the media, but some of the smartest people in the country are now raising the alarm. The aggressive and extremely expensive government promotion of vaccines is creating blowback at multiple levels.
For the last 18 months Australian governments have lied to the public about the effectiveness of lockdowns, which have clearly failed and made us the laughing stock of the world. Dr Guy Campbell is one of the few medical practitioners who has shown the courage and integrity to confront the insanity which has transformed a freedom loving country into a prison island.
Here he looks at the single most controversial issue in Australia today.
The wheels are falling off the “vaccines are our salvation, our ticket to freedom” argument. It is becoming clear that the Covid vaccines are “leaky”. They do not stop the vaccinated from acquiring the virus (in particular, the now dominant Delta variant) and they do not stop them transmitting the virus. Plus, whatever protection they do provide is probably short lived, perhaps just 6 months.
Complex science has been oversimplified by the media and our politicians, based on faulty assumptions that these injections stop transmissions. Our vaccine policy should not be built on something we want it to do, but what the data tells us.
The new mRNA injections which were 95% effective in initial clinical trials at reducing symptoms in Alpha strain are decreasingly effective against the delta strain, as seen by record cases and deaths in Israel, the world’s most inoculated country.
So, the questions that need to be asked are: Will They Reduce Transmission? Are They Safe? Do They Work? Do you need it? To put further doubt on solely relying on vaccination to control Covid, in the three most vaccinated countries in the world – Israel 80%, Seychelles 70%, and Iceland 77% – there are increasing COVID cases in the fully vaccinated.
The waning efficacy of vaccines can be seen in Israel, as of 30/8/21 having both record cases and deaths from Covid, exemplified in a locality in Jerusalem where only 42.9% of the population has been fully vaccinated, yet 85-90% of all hospitalised patients were fully vaccinated.
This is best explained by Dr Vladimir Zelenko.
In Iceland, Chief Epidemiologist Þórólfur Guðnason says vaccination has not led to the herd immunity that experts hoped for. In recent weeks, as the Delta variant outstripped all others in Iceland, it became clear that vaccinated people can easily contract it as well as spread it to others.
He said in a briefing on 3 August: the Covid-19 pandemic is not close to being over and will not be over until it’s over everywhere’. On 8 August, he conceded the goal cannot be to eradicate the virus from the community. Instead, he now believes it is necessary to try to achieve herd immunity by allowing the virus to spread throughout the community, but to try to prevent serious illness by protecting vulnerable groups.
Looking at Iceland (77% vaccinated) and Australia (27.9% vaccinated) why would we think vaccination is our golden key out of the Covid nightmare? To help explain this, mRNA injections work by helping stop the replication of infections in the lungs, but not in the mucosal linings of the mouth and nose. They do not stop transmission and were never designed to do so.
In fact, conversely, recent studies in a preprint paper by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group, published Aug. 10 in The Lancet, recent studies showed that when infected vaccinated individuals can initially carry 251 times the load of the virus in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated.
While moderating the symptoms of infection, injected individuals carry unusually high viral loads without becoming ill at first, potentially transforming them into presymptomatic spreaders. This phenomenon may be the source of the post-vaccination surges in heavily vaccinated populations globally as previously discussed.
As quoted by CDC director Rochelle Walensky “these vaccinations have no ability to prevent infection by or transmission of the delta variant”.
This partial, non-sterilizing immunity from the three novel COVID-19 vaccines will only get worse with re-vaccinations. Further proof of increased transmission in the vaccinated was confirmed on 30th July, with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcing that the Delta variant was showing similarly high viral loads among unvaccinated and vaccinated cases.
Again suggesting ‘an increased risk of transmission and raised concerns that, unlike with other variants, vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus’. A similar conclusion was reached by Public Health England on 6 August: ‘levels of virus in those who become infected with Delta having already been vaccinated may be similar to levels found in unvaccinated people.
This may have implications for people’s infectiousness, whether they have been vaccinated or not’, meaning that vaccines will not suppress the virus spread as much as had been hoped.
In the UK, the Delta variant accounts for 99% of all Covid hospitalisations. Of these, 34.9% were fully vaccinated and 55.1% had received at least one dose.
Public Health England’sTechnical Briefing 20 in early August showed that while vaccination does reduce mortality in the over-50s by more than threefold, for those under 50, the fatality rate among the vaccinated is slightly higher than in the unvaccinated: 0.05 versus 0.03% (likely the result of several confounding variables).
On 10 August, a panel of experts, including most importantly the head of the Oxford vaccine team, called for an end to mass testing in Britain because the Delta variant has destroyed any chance of herd immunity through vaccination.
The scientists believe it’s time to accept there’s no way of stopping the virus spreading through the entire population and monitoring people with mild symptoms is no longer helpful.
A pandemic can only be terminated for good if the population develops robust protective immunity against the virus. This naturally occurs through herd immunity and becomes increasingly stronger as a combined result of natural disease-mediated immune selection, and active immunization (i.e., as far as its adaptive, pathogen-specific component is concerned).
The more robust the herd immunity becomes, the more effectively and durably the population controls the virus, the less frequently outbreaks will occur, and the less impressive those will be.
To quote Professor Robert Clancy, one of the most senior clinical immunologists in Australia, and the most specialised one on Covid:“The biology of Covid-19 infection dictates that while the parenteral genetic vaccines available to us will be important in short term Covid control, they will have little impact on infection, will be short in duration, and that antigen drift will create variants that will severely compromise efficacy.
They will settle along influenza vaccine lines.
Moreover, genetic vaccines by stimulating uncontrolled synthesis of Spike protein will cause highly concerning adverse events of a short and long term nature that we can only surmise at this stage.
All these outcomes have come about. My point was, and is, that Ivermectin and like drugs are immediately needed, not to compete with vaccines, but to complement them: to reduce community spread; to treat early disease; to reduce progression to severe disease requiring admission to hospital and death; and to reduce the growing community repository of ‘long Covid’.
Making Ivermectin available across the Covid community now,will be synergistic with the vaccine programme facilitating movement through the planned stages, and greatly facilitate our reconnect with the world outside the bubble.
In summary, the current vaccines will help reduce hospitalisation morbidity and death in the elderly & vulnerable but do little in preventing infection or reducing community spread, in fact the opposite.
To further add to the argument of vaccinating the fit and healthy there are increasing safety concerns. Statistics from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), show 360 Covid deaths in children, all of whom had serious comorbidities yet for healthy children under the age of 18, 99.998% recovered with no treatment.
Essentially, Influenza is more serious in healthy under 18-year-old’s. Furthermore, again according to the CDC, myocarditis/pericarditis rates are ≈12.6 cases per million doses of second-dose mRNA vaccine among individuals 12 to 39 years of age. However, if you’re under the age of 40 and healthy, your risk of dying from COVID-19 is just 0.01%, you have a 99.99% chance of surviving the infection. For further safety concerns the following attachments provide plenty of evidence
http://medisolve.org/yellowcard_urgentprelimreport.pdf andhttps://cf5e727d-d02d-4d71-89ff9fe2d3ad957f.filesusr.com/ugd/adf864_a6420942982e4d8795949af93e44f57d.pdf and from Australia https://apps.tga.gov.au/PROD/DAEN/daen-report.aspx
So how can it be justified to vaccinate healthy under 18-year-olds with a 99.998% survival (CDC stats) from Covid, when vaccination increases transmission in those infected with Covid and potentially causes increased variants, not to mention 50% decrease efficacy after 6 months, and essentially when there is known early triple therapy available to both reduce morbidity, including long Covid and mortality? Ditto healthy under 40 year olds with a survival rate from Covid at 99.99%.
Even healthy 50-59 year olds have a 99.73% survival rate from Covid ,similar to dying in a pedestrian accident. So why risk mRNA injections when there is the evidence for Ivermectin and Triple therapy? How is this being ignored by the likes of APHRA, AMA, the TGA and the Government authorities, especially now with evidence emerging around the world of waning efficiency and safety issues of mRNA injections?
Instead, our governments have chosen to ignore history and have deluded themselves that these vaccines are safe. The problem is that they have done so at the expense of citizens who continue to trust in the government and its health experts.
Surely the various Governments’ starting point should be the lifting of lockdown restrictions as soon as possible? This can be expedited by using Ivermectin, Doxycyline and Zinc in triple therapy in early treatment protocols against Covid to reduce infection, hospital admissions, morbidity, long covid & mortality.
As per one of Australia’s wisest academics, Professor Ramesh Thakur (Ex Assistant General of The United Nations) to escape the lockdowns and other measures which are causing enormous harms, we should do the following:
1. Set a hard target date for vaccines (non-mandatory) to be offered to all adults
2. Proclaim in advance the end of all restrictions throughout Australia on that date. Those fully vaccinated are better protected against infections and, if infected, against severity of illness. Those who have chosen not to be vaccinated are solely responsible for their decision and its consequences for their own health, but no more likely than the vaccinated to spread the virus
3. Announce that based on everything we now know about transmissibility and breakthrough infections, especially by new variants, domestic vaccination certificates are pointless and will not be required for any purpose
4. Terminate testing and contact tracing for asymptomatic people. It sustains a state of fear without serving any useful medical purpose
5. Issue clear and coherent guidelines on voluntary best practice personal hygiene and social interactions to reduce spread. This should include prompt testing with the onset of symptoms and isolation following clinical diagnosis
6. Loosen international travel but require rigorous protocols, including inexpensive and quick-results testing
7. Invest in high-quality assessments of the efficacy of newly developed and repurposed early treatment drugs
8. Invest in a substantial upgrade of the health, hospital and ICU infrastructure at the national level, with clear protocols for moving patients as required from infection hotspots to where there is spare capacity with guaranteed open state borders.
The time is NOW.
We are in very dangerous territory. Together we can help to reduce the immense fear, suffering, health deterioration and lockdowns in our nation by providing solutions that are sane, safe and effective. It’s time to Lead with Hope Not Fear.
