Coronavirus Deaths May Be Miscalculated

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There's a lot of information hinting to the idea that we may not have the exact number of people who have passed away as a result of the new coronavirus correct.

  • Reflect On:

    Could infection rates be higher, and mortality rates be lower than the numbers we are seeing? Who knows, when this is all over we may have a better idea.

Updates and more examples of miscalculated deaths since this article was written, here.

As the lockdown measures in multiple countries, including here in Canada, continue to become more intense, it raised many red flags for a number of scientists. For me, it also raised a red flag given what we’ve seen from global pandemics of the past, like the swine flu, which infected more than a billion and killed more than half a million around the globe. I am not comparing the new coronavirus to the flu, I’ll leave that to the scientists. According to an article recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine by Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Dr. H. Clifford Lane, and Dr. Robert R. Redfield, the case fatality rate may be less than one percent, and the clinical consequences of COVID-19 may be more similar to that of a severe seasonal influenza. You can access that study and read more about it here, but at the end of the day we really don’t know yet, and with screwed numbers, we may never know for sure.

Dr. Eran Bendavid and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, two professors of medicine at Stanford University recently published an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal titled, “Is the coronavirus as deadly as they say?” In it, they provide reasons for why the fatality rate might be significantly lower than the projection given by the World Health Organization (WHO).

John P. A. Ioannidis, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at Stanford, recently published an article entitled “A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data. In the article, he also argues that there is simply not enough data to make claims about reported case fatality rate. He states that rates, “like the official 3.4% rate from the World Health Organization, cause horror — and are meaningless.

A paper recently published in The International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents titled “SARS-CoV-2: fear versus data claims “that the problem of SARS-CoV-2 is probably being overestimated.” (source)

There is information going around the that infection rate of the new coronavirus is most likely higher than what the data we have so far has shown. That opinion is being shared quite a bit, which would ultimately drive the death rate down. But what about deaths?

An article published in Psychology Today written by Robert Bartholomew Ph.D, points out that,

Professor Walter Ricciardi, an advisor to the Italian Health Ministry, observes that the high death rates there may reflect the way that deaths are recorded. “The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die … with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus,” he has said.  “On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 percent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 percent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity—many had two or three” (Newey, 2020). Pre-morbidity refers to having serious health issues prior to the onset of a disease.

According to another study out of Italy, 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities that were examined specifically for this study were people who suffered from previous medical conditions. More than 75% had high blood pressure, about 35% had diabetes and a third suffered from heart disease. The study provides inside as to why their death rate may be much higher compared to other countries.

That being said, in the hardest-hit area around the city of Bergamo, some 4,500 people died of coronavirus in March, according to data analysis firm InTwig, while only 2,060 were included in the data provided by the Civil Protection Agency. (source)

An article recently published by the Financial Times points out,

In the UK, about 150,000 people die every year between January and March. To date, the vast majority of those who have died from COVID-19 in Britain have been aged 70 or older or had serious pre-existing health conditions. What is not clear is how many of those deaths would have occurred anyway if the patients had not contracted COVID-19. Speaking at a parliamentary hearing last week, Professor Neil Ferguson, director of the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London, said it was not yet clear how many “excess deaths” caused by coronavirus there would be in the UK. However, he said the proportion of COVID-19 victims who would have died anyway could be “as many as half or two-thirds”.

It’s interesting to note in the quote above that Professor Ferguson pointed to the fact that there could be many “excess deaths” as a result of COVID-19 that have gone, and will go undocumented. But again, that being said, the number of COVID-19 victims who would have died anyway could be “as many as half or two-thirds.”

An article written by John Lee, a recently retired professor of pathology and a former NHS consultant pathologist raises some interesting questions. He published  it in The Spectatorand in it he writes:

“If someone dies of a respiratory infection in the UK, the specific cause of the infection is not usually recorded, unless the illness is a rare ‘notifiable disease’. So the vast majority of respiratory deaths in the UK are recorded as bronchopneumonia, pneumonia, old age or a similar designation. We don’t really test for flu, or other seasonal infections. If the patient has, say, cancer, motor neurone disease or another serious disease, this will be recorded as the cause of death, even if the final illness was a respiratory infection. This means UK certifications normally under-record deaths due to respiratory infections.

Now look at what has happened since the emergence of Covid-19. The list of notifiable diseases has been updated. This list — as well as containing smallpox (which has been extinct for many years) and conditions such as anthrax, brucellosis, plague and rabies (which most UK doctors will never see in their entire careers) — has now been amended to include Covid-19. But not flu. That means every positive test for Covid-19 must be notified, in a way that it just would not be for flu or most other infections.

In the current climate, anyone with a positive test for Covid-19 will certainly be known to clinical staff looking after them: if any of these patients dies, staff will have to record the Covid-19 designation on the death certificate — contrary to usual practice for most infections of this kind. There is a big difference between Covid-19 causing death, and Covid-19 being found in someone who died of other causes. Making Covid-19 notifiable might give the appearance of it causing increasing numbers of deaths, whether this is true or not. It might appear far more of a killer than flu, simply because of the way deaths are recorded.”

The idea that deaths may also be more than what we are getting, may also be a possibility. Again, who really knows?

This idea was also recently echoed by Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history who refers to the measures being taken governments around the world as “Draconian.” You can read more about that and watch what he has to say about the new coronavirus, here.

Some influencers on social media are also raising concerns with regards to what’s happening. Candace Owens, for example, is calling into question the decline seen in pneumonia an flu deaths during the time of this pandemic. She is questioning whether or not these are cases that can be lumped into the concerns listed above, that some deaths are wrongfully being attributed to Covid19 when Covid19 is the for sure cause, despite that many who are dying may be testing positive for the virus, or one of the coronaviruses that have been circling the globe for years.

Apart from what’s discussed above, some physicians are taking to the internet to emphasize that even with the current numbers as they are, the panic and hysteria that seems to be taking place doesn’t seem to be justified. Perhaps they are wrong, perhaps they are right?

Here is a video of Dr. Wolfgang Wodargm, a well known pulmonologist sharing his thoughts on the new coronavirus. In it, he questions the current lockdown measures being taken by governments worldwide .

Dr. Martin Dubravec, an allergist-immunologist, wrote an article for the  Association of American Physicians and Surgeons published on March 29th, in it he states the following in an attempt to provide people with perspective.

Of all the deaths reported in the United States as of today, only 2 have been in patients under 18 years of age.  Currently, our death rate (deaths/confirmed cases) has been as high as 2.3% and as low as 1.1% over the past 2 weeks.  The President’s COVID-19 Taskforce estimated that as many at 1/1000 New Yorkers may have the virus.  If this were projected to the entire United States (population 328,239,523), then the total number of COVID-19 would be approximately 328, 239 and deaths from COVID-19 (1.8% death rate) at 5,909.  Even if this ends up being wrong by 1,000 percent, the death rate would still be 59,000, i.e., within range of the estimates for influenza deaths.  You can look at it in another way.  98% of people who get COVID-19 fully recover!

As of today (March 29, 2020) there are 123,828 confirmed cases and 2229 deaths (1.8% death rate) from COVID-19 in the United States.  Compare that with the influenza estimates so far this year:  29,000 deaths!  And the flu season is not yet over, with the CDC estimating as many as 59,000 will die of influenza by May of this year.

The CDC estimates a death rate of 7.4% for influenza like illnesses and pneumonia this year.  This death rate is similar to previous years.  Who in the media is discussing this? (source)

At the end of the day, we don’t know, we don’t have all of the data and we won’t for some time. But there is nothing wrong with questioning what we are getting from the mainstream media. That seems to be a duty these days.

Two Boys Drop Dead While Wearing Face Masks During Gym Class

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Two Chinese boys dropped dead in gym class while exercising and wearing a mask. It's unclear whether or not the masks had anything to do with their deaths.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are children in gym class, and some gyms across the globe mandating masks when there is science indicating that wearing a mask while exercising is not safe and potentially dangerous?

What Happened: Multiple media outlets are reporting that two Chinese boys dropped dead within one week of each other wearing face masks during gym class. Both of the students were 14 years old and were running laps for a physical examination test when they suddenly collapsed and lost consciousness during their run.

According to the New York Post:

One of the teens was only minutes into his gym class when he fell backward April 24 at Dancheng Caiyuan Middle School in Henan province, according to the outlet.

“He was wearing a mask while lapping the running track, then he suddenly fell backwards and hit his head on the ground,” his father, who was only identified as Li, told the outlet.

His dad said teachers and students tried to help him, to no avail.

The death certificate listed the cause as sudden cardiac arrest, but no autopsy was performed, the outlet said.

The boy’s father said he believes that the mask his son was required to wear to school played a role in his death.

It’s not clear if the cause of death was a result of wearing a mask, or if the masks even contributed to the death of the boys. That being said, it’s important to ask whether or not masks are dangerous during exercise.

But Cao Lanxiu, professor at Shaanxi University of Chinese Medicine, said it’s unlikely that the mask caused the boy to suffocate.

“I don’t think mask-wearing has caused this sudden death,” Cao said, though she added that it was impossible to say without an autopsy.

Six days after his death, the second student collapsed at Changsha’s Xiangjun Future Experimental School in Hunan province, the outlet reported.

He had been wearing an N95 respirator and running a 1,000-meter exam when the fatal incident occurred, the report said. It’s unclear whether an autopsy had been ordered.

Though it’s not known whether the masks played a role in either death, several schools in Tianjin and Shanghai have canceled physical education exams, according to the report.

Why This Is Important: A study published in June 2020 raises some health concerns about people wearing masks while exercising. It also calls into question the ability of masks to stop Covid-19. It’s not the only study to do so, but they go against multiple studies that have been recently published showing that masks can indeed be effective in stoping Covid-19, but it’s quite a controversial subject and we’re only hearing one side from the mainstream media, which is why I believe it’s important to present the other.

The study was published in the Journal Medical Hypothesis titled “Exercise with facemask; Are we handling a devil’s sword? – A physiological hypothesis” and claims the following:

Exercising with facemasks may reduce available Oxygen and increase air trapping preventing substantial carbon dioxide exchange. The hypercapnic hypoxia may potentially increase acidic environment, cardiac overload, anaerobic metabolism and renal overload, which may substantially aggravate the underlying pathology of established chronic diseases. Further contrary to the earlier thought, no evidence exists to claim the facemasks during exercise offer additional protection from the droplet transfer of the virus. Hence, we recommend social distancing is better than facemasks during exercise and optimal utilization rather than exploitation of facemasks during exercise.

According to the authors, exercising with facemasks induced as “a hypercapnic hypoxia environment [inadequate Oxygen (O2) and Carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange] . This acidic environment, both at the alveolar and blood vessels level, induces numerous physiological alterations when exercising with facemasks: 1) Metabolic shift; 2) cardiorespiratory stress; 3) excretory system altercations; 4) Immune mechanism; 5) Brain and nervous system.’

Further, poor saturation of haemoglobin would be anticipated due to increased partial pressure of CO2 at higher exercise intensity Fig. 2 demonstrates the extreme right shift of the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve, which would be higher than that expected during exercise. This acidic environment would unload O2 faster at the muscle level, but due to higher heart rate and reduced affinity at the alveolar junction, the partial pressure of O2 would substantially fall, creating a hypoxic environment for all vital organs.

The authors also point out that “wearing of facemasks to prevent the community spread of the novel Covid-19 is itself debatable, considering the limited evidence on the subject matter. WHO recommends masks only for Covid-19 patients but the usage of masks is morally “exploited” among community individuals.”

Here’s another interesting claim by the researchers:

Though the respirator masks are perceived to be the barriers for preventing aerosol depositions to the respiratory tract, the bitter reality is that masks increase the risk of more in-depth respiratory tract infections. As quoted by Perencevich et al. 2020, “The average healthy person shouldn’t be wearing masks as it creates a false sense of security and people tend to touch their face more often when compared to not wearing masks. The surgical masks are debated to trap the droplets containing the vrus inside, increasing rather than reducing the risk of infection.

The study concludes:

Exercising with facemasks might increase pathophysiological risks of underlying chronic disease, especially cardiovascular and metabolic risks. Social exercisers are recommended to do low to moderate-intensity exercise, rather than vigorous exercise when they are wearing facemasks. We also recommend people with chronic diseases to exercise alone at home, under supervision when required, without the use of facemasks. Given the identified and hypothesized risks, social distancing and self-isolation appear to be better than wearing facemasks while exercising during this global crisis.

We are rapidly moving toward a time where the citizenry of the world no longer questions the information provided to them by their government. In many cases, simply questioning federal government and global health authorities like the World Health Organization (WHO) can result in censorship, and in our case, demonetization.

We’ve seen this a lot with Covid-19. The number of doctors and scientists around the world who have been raising multiple questions, cause for concern, and presenting research, information and evidence that completely contradicts the claims and recommendations that we are receiving from government health authorities is truly astounding. The amount they’ve been ignored by the mainstream, censored on the internet and ridiculed is also quite eye-opening and revealing.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is there a digital authoritarian Orwellian ‘fact-checker’ going around  patrolling the internet and telling people what is and what isn’t, what to believe and what not to believe. On top of this we are witnessing mandates instead of recommendations, when a wealth of information exists that clearly calls into question these mandates.

Should people not have the right to choose what they do with their body? Should people not have a right to examine all information and determine for themselves what is and what isn’t? Why is there always a campaign to make people feel guilty, or make them feel like they are putting others in danger by not complying to mandates that are already highly questionable, and in some cases possibly even dangerous? What’s going on here?

Another example of conflicting information: A paper published a couple of months ago in the New England Journal of Medicine by, Michael Klompas, M.D., M.P.H., Charles A. Morris, M.D., M.P.H., Julia Sinclair, M.B.A., Madelyn Pearson, D.N.P., R.N., and Erica S. Shenoy, M.D., Ph.D states:

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

A study published in 2015 found that cloth masks can increase healthcare workers risk of infection. It also called into question the efficacy of medical masks. You can read more about that and access it here.

The physiological effects of breathing elevated inhaled CO2 may include changes in visual performance, modified exercise endurance, headaches and dyspnea. The psychological effects include decreased reasoning and alertness, increased irritability, severe dyspnea, headache, dizziness, perspiration, and short-term memory loss. (source)

We are a society moving towards complete obedience, as well as the shame and ridicule of those who don’t comply. Every day we are being ‘turned against’ each other and a lot of it is due to the fact that there is a plethora of  credible information out there that completely contradicts our health authorities.

“We are the last free people, we are the people that have the last chance to act.” – Julian Assange

The Takeaway

It can be frustrating living in a time where mandates are imposed on us despite a wealth of information showing that it doesn’t make much sense. What is done for the ‘greater good’ according to governments may not actually be for the greater good, and this has been a theme throughout history, one that may even be hard for people to accept due to the fear it may bring into ones own consciousenss.

Today, there is more of a division amongst people with regards to ‘what is’ and ‘what isn’t’ and that’s largely due to the fact that our consciousness and perception of events are extremely manipulated. This is why there is always so much information contradicting information, recommendations and explanations that come from our government.

One thing is for certain, regardless of how you feel, keeping calm and peaceful in a time of ‘chaos’ is key.

There’s no doubt about it, many people are going through and experiencing a shift in consciousness. COVID-19 has served as a catalyst for many to start questioning what we are being told, why we think the way we do and why we keep listening and following orders that don’t really make much sense. It’s similar to what we’ve experienced before with events like, 9/11 for example, and many others.

Living in a time like we are today can really drive people mad. It can be frustrating seeing so many people blindly following recommendations without ever questioning them, and in turn demonize those who don’t. The human race has been subjected to measures throughout history under the guise of good, all while moving and creeping towards an authoritarian state. We should be listening to people like Edward Snowden on these matters in my opinion. He has been expressing that just like 9/11, governments are using COVID-19 to “monitor us like never before.” He’s stated that “As authoritarianism spreads, as emergency laws proliferate, as we sacrifice our rights, we also sacrifice our capability to arrest the slide into a less liberal and free world. Do you truly believe that when the first wave, this second wave, and the 16th wave of coronavirus is a long forgotten memory, that these capabilities will not be kept? (source)

A Video of President Trump Supporting Bill & Melinda Gates’ Vaccine Alliance, Gavi

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Donald Trump/U.S. Government have donated more than a billion dollars to Bill & Melinda Gates' vaccine alliance, called Gavi.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do people still think this is fake news even though it came straight from President Donald Trump? Why do people think one person, like Trump can "save" humanity? Why do we keep giving our power away to other people and expect them to make change?

Politics is a funny thing, if there’s one common theme that can constantly be seen, it’s the fact that throughout the years, presidents and politicians are constantly flip flopping when it comes to their opinion on various topics that are controlled by political policy,  or should I say corporate policy instead? Why do they (presidents and politicians) flip flop so much? Is it because they’ve been entrapped or black mailed in some sort of way? Perhaps threatened in some sort of way to take a particular stance on a particular topic? Are decisions and opinions given simply to appeal to the masses and collect the popular vote? With such a large lack of transparency existing within big politics, why do we even continue to vote and uphold a system that doesn’t seem to be capable of helping our planet, people and all life on it thrive? Why are there so many solutions to our problems that have trouble seeing the light of day? These are important questions to ask ourselves, especially in today’s day and age.

What Happened: Today, Trump has completely reversed his position on some issues, like vaccines, for example. Is this a result of the influence that the “secret government” (Roosevelt) has over the presidency? Who really knows. During his 2016 campaign Trump was quite outspoken about vaccine safety concerns, but since then he has publicly stated how important they are, and he recently gave more than a billion dollars to a vaccine alliance called Gavi that was co-founded by Bill & Melinda Gates. He also inked a deal with Pfizer for 100,000,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine while simultaneously stating that “big pharma” doesn’t like him for lowering drugs prices.

I wrote about this and published an article about it a couple of weeks ago titled  “Trump Gives 1.16 Billion to Bill Gates’ Vaccine alLIANCE & Inks deal with Pfizer of a COVID Vaccine.” As a result, we received a lot of comments on Facebook stating that it’s “fake news” or to simply “trust the plan.” The number of comments on the article claiming that it was “fake news” was quite overwhelming, and most of them obviously Trump supporters.

I am writing this article to let these people know, again, that this isn’t ‘fake news.’ US President Donald Trump “donated more to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to prevent the spread of infectious diseases worldwide.” He did so in a statement of support for Gavi at the public Gavi pledge conference, which was hosted by the United Kingdom, on June 4th. So far, the United States has donated more than $12 billion for the development of COVID-19 vaccines and therapies, and “the U.S. commitment to immunization complements the work of innovators in the United States and other countries who are racing to find a vaccine and treatments for COVID­19.” (source)

Here’s a video clip of Trump talking about his decision, as the headline of this article promotes. Clearly, this isn’t fake news. 

Shortly after this, Trump announced that they will give nearly $2 billion to Pfizer, a big pharmaceutical company, for 100 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine that could make its way into the public domain sometime next year.

It really goes to show you how many people simply read headlines without actually reading the article and examining sources for themselves.

Sure, Trump may be playing both sides. He has promoted alternative treatments like Hydroxychloroquine, which was supported by countless doctors, scientists and evidence. He has called the coronavirus pandemic “artificially induced” and more, which many of us in the ‘alternative media’ world would agree with for a number of reasons. But again, he is also simultaneously supporting the vaccine.

Are politicians forced to do and say things they really don’t agree with? Why? What’s going on ?

Has science become politicized?

Why This Is Important: If we write an article about how Trump has been the only president to make any real progress on human and child sex trafficking, we get demonized for being “Trump supporters” which we are not. If we write an article that raises concerns, like the topic discussed in this article, we get demonized for not being a Trump haters” , which we are not.

This is what happens when you look at and write about politics from a neutral perspective without taking sides. The idea that one man or woman in the position of the presidency can make changes our world needs is upsetting to me, because we are constantly giving our power away every four years thinking someone else is going to “take care of the problem.” We look to these people as idols and saviours of humanity, when really we are simply prolonging problems that plague our world by putting power into the hands of people who don’t always have the best interests of humanity at heart, all the time.

The fact that so many people claimed that Trumps donation was “fake news” goes to show just how many people don’t read articles and examine sources. This makes it easy for “fact checkers” and provides more of a justification for governments to censor real information and label it as fake news. Simply reading a headline and then jumping to a conclusion is a huge problem people have today, especially when it comes to information that contradicts ones belief system.

Big politics is a big game, and those who play it have to go up against those who sit above government, a power so great that dozens of presidents and politicians have mentioned it, and most of them in recent history have given in to the will of those who sit above the presidency. Donald Trump, in my opinion, is a difficult person for this group of people, which is why he has been bombarded and demonized by the mainstream media and his opposition with false accusations, like the “Russian hack” for example. All these and more have been an attempt to get the president out of his current position.

As New York City mayor John F. Hylan once said“like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation.” This “little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties … [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country.

Again, this doesn’t mean that he is the “solution” or represents the type of change we need. Ultimately, a shift in consciousness is required and humanity needs to begin creating and making decisions from a place of peace and good will, and an elevated level of thinking.

The Takeaway: Everytime I examine big politics, I am amazed as to why humanity continues to play with it and participate in it, thus perpetuating it. Why are we made to feel like our vote actually counts and that one person (president) can make any significant change on the planet? Presidents prior to Trump have been used as celebrity figures. They are marketed and portrayed as idols and bearers of good will, and in many cases a distraction. We are made to believe that our ‘leaders’ are solving and tackling the issues that need to be tackled, but are they? Nothing significant ever seems to get accomplished.  If we can lock down the world and take action for the coronavirus, why can’t we lock down the world and take action for more important things?

Canada Inks Deal With Pfizer & Moderna To Prepare The Nation For “Mass Vaccinations”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Canada recently announced that they signed a deal with Pfizer & Moderna to secure millions of doses of a coronavirus vaccine when it's ready.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is vaccine hesitancy growing? Should the freedom of choice always remain? Are people who refuse made out to be the "bad" ones as a result of mainstream media/government/big pharma perception manipulation?

What Happened: The Canadian government has inked a new deal with pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and Moderna to secure tens of millions of doses of the new coronavirus vaccine in 2021, which is still currently in the developmental stages. Procurement Minister Anita Anand recently made the announcement after Pfizer tweeted news of the new deal, stating that “We are increasingly focused on the next stage of our recovery, including preparing Canada for mass vaccinations”

This comes shortly after the U.S. government gave more than a billion dollars to Bill Gates‘ vaccine alliance called Gavi, which was co-founded by Bill & Melinda Gates. President Trump also signed a deal with Pfizer for one hundred million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. You can read more about those stories here.

Why This Is Important: Many people are wondering if the coronavirus vaccine will be mandatory, or perhaps similar to recent mask mandates that multiple governments have put in place in certain areas. In Canada, masks are mandatory when inside many public buildings, and many people are starting to see that these types of mandates may actually become permanent, and also worry that other permanent changes are being put in place that will remain as “then new normal” under the guise of necessity.

 Survey results released on Tuesday from the non-profit Angus Reid Institute found half of Canadians say they have no reservations and are ready to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as it’s available. But 32 per cent — roughly a third of respondents — say they’d likely wait a while. Another 14 per cent don’t want to get a vaccine at all. This comes from CBC, a major mainstream media organization in Canada. I do have a hard time trusting these numbers, and personally feel that the number of those who do not desire the vaccine may be much greater than 50 percent, but I could be wrong. At the end of the day, mainstream media and poll organizations could easily team up and manipulate numbers, it’s so hard to trust anything that comes from mainstream media given their relationship with corporations and governments. We’ve already seen a great amount of manipulation when it comes to the new coronavirus, as with many other topics over the years.

Are powerful people creating a problem in order to propose a solution? In today’s day and age, this is an important question to ask.

According to Edward Snowden, “Governments around the world are are exploiting the pandemic to monitor us like never before.” He and many others have been pointing out how society is moving fast towards an authoritarian type of existence, and how it’s already here. The enforcement or advocacy of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom has been here for quite a while, and it’s done in a very clever way, often hiding under the guise of good will, or making people feel that they may be harming others if they do not comply.

This pandemic has been a catalyst for many people to question actions taken by government and if they’re actually in societies best interest. Are governments simply following the will of their masters, without question, like we follow the will of our government? Global chaos seems to be a recipe for change, awareness, and for more people to see through potential lies and manipulation.

Can human beings do better? We have unlimited potential to create a human experience where everyone can thrive. We have solutions, finding them is not the problem, implementing them seems to be the case and solutions that can change our world for the better have long threatened powerful interests and their ability to control the human population.

Is COVID-19 doing what 9/11 did for human consciousness? 

A common theme throughout this pandemic is the ‘waking up’ of humanity. Given the discrepancy that’s existed around the world with regards to categorizing coronavirus deaths when they are not the result of COVID-19, the controversy surrounding masks, an infection fatality rate that is no different from a seasonal flu (read more about that here and here), treatment options that have worked yet have been constantly ridiculed, and the unreliability of the tests used to detect the new coronavirus, many people are asking themselves what’s really going on?

Vaccine hesitancy hasn’t only increased among the citizenry, Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project, recently emphasized that, “The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines.” She did so at a World Health Organization (WHO) conference on vaccine safety. You find find links to the conference and read more about it here, if interested. She cites multiple studies proving her point.

Doctors and scientists are starting to distrust pharmaceutical companies, and many don’t feel comfortable prescribing certain medications, another point emphasized by Larson at the conference, and the research she cites.

Multiple clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines have shown severe reactions within 10 days after taking the vaccine. Meanwhile, the US government and Yale University are collaborating in a clinical trial to determine the best messaging to persuade Americans to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves, why is there a digital authoritarian Orwellian “fact-checker” going around the internet censoring any information that contradicts the WHO on health issues? Why are so many scientists and doctors experiencing censorship, and why is mainstream media bringing no attention to what these doctors have been saying? What’s really going on here? How long has our perception of major global events been completely manipulated? Should we not have the right to examine information openly and freely, and determine for ourselves what is and what isn’t and choose, for ourselves, what decisions we desire to make?
