..... the universe and human stupidity.

And I'm not certain about the former. -- Einstein.

In response to a "new variant" of Covid-19, which has  now been named Omicron the world has suddenly gone mad -- once again.  Travel lockdowns, constraints, etc.  The stock market collapsed by over 900 DOW points (which many years ago would be called a "crash"; these days its just a bad day.)

Contemplate these facts:

  • This "variant" has been found all over the world already.  Therefore its already everywhere.  Locking down travel after it is already in your nation is stupid and does nothing.  The variant is either going to become dominant or it will not. You cannot alter that course once it gets to you -- and no matter where you are it already has.

  • This "variant" has no evidence of being more-deadly; it may in fact be less-so.  Indeed that is the natural mutational pattern coronaviruses follow over time.  There is no evidence in the form, for example, of higher hospital admissions, ICU utilization and death in those in which this variant has been detected.  In other words thus far all the scaremongering has been based on..... exactly nothing as there are no facts currently in evidence to support such fear.

  • The vaccines clearly do not work.  International travel has been vaccinated-only everywhere for quite some time.  So the person(s) who brought the virus into your nation with this "variant" were vaccinated.  The market, of course, responded to this news by spiking the vaccine companies, specifically Moderna.  You have to wonder what sort of stupidity would drive someone to consider a firm that has one product which clearly did not work a "buy" in a situation like this.  Mass psychosis is the only reasonable explanation.

  • Lockdowns and constraints clearly do not work either.  The virus mutated because that's what viruses do, and specifically coronaviruses do this all the time.  It's common.  Further, vaccinating into an outbreak promotes vaccine-resistant strains because that's just how natural selection works.  You want the opposite but you can't get there from here by vaccinating people while an outbreak is going on so the better option is to focus on early treatments and even prophylaxis which does not place immune pressure on the virus to evade your jabs.

  • Meanwhile we the evidence continues to mount that prior infection confers better resistance than vaccines.  Perfect immunity?  No.  But much better immunity and, to three nines, perfect protection against critical illness and death.

There were no cases of critical disease at reinfection and 28 cases at primary infection (Table S3), for an odds ratio of 0.00 (95% CI, 0.00 to 0.64). There were no cases of death from Covid-19 at reinfection and 7 cases at primary infection resulting in an odds ratio of 0.00...

So which do you prefer, since while the jabs do appear to provide some protection it wanes and it certainly does not prevent 100% of the severe and fatal outcomes.

Never mind the jab side effect profiles, which are quite dangerous, the evidence is mounting that the intermediate and long-term dangers are very significant and, in addition, there is mounting evidence that if you get jabbed and then are infected, and you will get infected, you are likely to not build "N" protein recognition so you can get infected again and again until you get the bad case that screws you.  This is due to a well-recognized phenomena called "OAS" ("Original Antigenic Sin") and is directly caused by the vaccines as they "train" your body to produce "S" antibodies, which is all they contain coding for and not "N" protein antibodies which are critical as the virus cannot mutate in that part to any material degree and remain a viable virus.

On the other hand the evidence is that beating the disease without a jab once means you have durable protection against critical and fatal outcomes on an extremely reliable basis including potential mutations since the "N" protein does not and cannot undergo substantial change.

The latter, by the way, is the pattern for every serious viral disease outbreak through history.

I don't need some jackass on TV to tell me this, I merely need to look around me and note that there are lots of other human beings on the planet.  Were this not the case 100% of the time we would not exist as some prior viral outbreak would have circulated and reinfected people relentlessly until all human beings were dead.  That has never happened and there is a few thousand years of written, recorded history plus hundreds of thousands of years of additional evidence supporting it yet we also know that every decade or two a significant viral pandemic shows up somewhere and circulates through the human population no matter what you try to do to stop it.  Even the most-isolated islands during the 1918 flu pandemic eventually got infected and had to deal with it.  If you can't keep a viral pandemic out when you're surrounded by hundreds of miles of ocean and there are no airplanes you will fail trying to keep it out in a connected, travel and commerce-rich world which, I remind you, we live in.

Never mind that with vaccines we have more Covid-19 deaths this year than last.  How is that possible if the jabs work?  Yes, not everyone has gotten them.  So what?  There should be a more than ratable decrease with vaccinated population percentage since we know the most at-risk were the most-likely to get the vaccines the earliest and thus if they prevented critical and fatal outcomes those vaccinated should be zero and zero when it comes to such outcomes.  If the virus kills 0.1% of the people who get it but the people who can get it are 200 million instead of 330 million because the rest have been vaccinated and are immune then the death count should drop by much more than a third since the most-vulnerable got jabbed first. 

Instead the death count went up.

Across sample sizes of hundreds of millions of people this is extraordinarily strong, indeed irrefutable evidence that the net societal impact of the vaccines is negative.  The exact reason why is immaterial; dead is dead.

It is crystal-clear to anyone who can think at all that on a net societal basis the jabs do not work, just as masks did not work.  We knew scientifically that masks did not work in 1981, as I've pointed out repeatedly, and that was with all persons involved being trained professionals in an operating room, a sterile place where you have reasonable control of outside confounding things.  In other words in the best possible environment for masks, where they damn well should work if they're going to work anywhere, they did not. There has not been one nation, state or region that has been able to demonstrate over the last 18+ months that they work either, which should not surprise since we knew they were at best worthless forty years ago.

When the first jackass started with that crap we should have put this sign up everywhere since masks were at best performative art and likely caused people to believe they were safe when in fact they were not, which is akin to intentionally handing someone a loaded gun and telling them its empty.

 

How about Fauci?  He told everyone decades ago that millions of children were going to get and die of AIDS contracted by close ordinary family contact from their parents.  He was 100% full of crap; it simply did not happen.  The facts are that the odds of contracting HIV from other than direct contamination into the bloodstream is, statistically-speaking, zero.  He told everyone at the time that AZT was the answer to AIDS and that was bull**** as well; AZT never saved a single person from AIDS and worse, it in fact destroyed the immune system itself and caused enhancement of disease over time.  Fauci told AIDS sufferers and their doctors not to use Bactrim, a cheap off-patent pair of antibiotics, as prophylaxis against PCP, a bacterial pneumonia that was killing AIDS patients with damaged immune systems by the score, despite knowing since the late 1970s that it worked to prevent PCP in Leukemia patients who, like AIDS patients, had wrecked immune systems.  Roughly thirty thousand Americans were shoved in the hole due to PCP infections during the years in which Fauci maintained that it should NOT be used.

Today nobody cares about that which we've scientifically demonstrated decades earlier, nor anyone's record.  Shoving 30,000 Americans into the hole by intentionally withholding a drug from them that we had every reason to believe would work is simply forgotten; nobody ever has had to answer for any of those dead bodies.  Note that not one so-called "interviewer" has demanded Fauci account for that, or force him to explain why we should put up with his bull**** rather than eat him and every person and family member of anyone working at the NIH given his proved record of being completely full of crap the last time around and his being prime driver of the fear porn this time as well.

Some vaccines are clearly effective and have a reasonable safety profile.  MMR is one of them.  100% safe, no.  No pharmaceutical is 100% safe.  But it is clearly safer than the measles and, unlike the Covid jabs, it actually produces sterile immunity; you neither get the measles nor can you pass it on to others if you've been vaccinated.

Measles is a reasonably-stable virus, however, and we have decades of experience backing this up.  Coronaviruses are not stable.  They mutate all the time and every single attempt to vaccinate against them in the past has failed to provide stable, durable and safe immunity.

Only infection has ever conferred critical and fatal outcome protection with coronaviruses through history.  There are no exceptions.  Not only have all previous attempts ended in failure several have resulted in vaccine-enhanced disease ripping through the vaccinated test subjects on re-challenge with several of those trials ending in the death of all or nearly all test subjects -- which were fortunately animals and not humans.  This time around we have performed a mass experiment with zero evidence over a period of years to demonstrate that what has happened 100% of the time in the past will not happen again.

It appears we're losing that bet -- a loss that, on the basis of history, we had every reason to believe would happen and yet instead of every single firm manufacturing this crap being an instant zero several are being rewarded.  What the hell sort of rampant, outrageous stupidity is that?

While the data is not yet in there is reason to believe, given the mutations described in this newest "variant", that the vaccinated may be ****ed as the mutations may confer full evasion and yet the binding antibodies you get from being jabbed are still there.  If that pans out here comes the exact same thing that has repeatedly happened with coronavirus vaccine attempts except this time we were dumb enough to mass-vaccinate humans rather than a handful of cats.

Note that on the evidence to date there is no reason to believe this "variant" is either more-dangerous or more transmissible.  SA had a surge in cases at the exact same time last year.  It's called "seasonality" and its real.  It's why we have a "flu season."  The confluence of mutations does raise questions though, including the possibility that our "best friends" are angling for the very scenario I put forward about a year ago -- which you'd better pray is wrong, by the way, although it'll be a while before we know.  Before you poo-poo this note that there are reports the closest match to any known sequenced Covid-19 virus date to April of 2020.  I have not yet personally verified this, but if its true then it is wildly improbable that an "in the wild" mutational pattern of this sort occuring by natural means would have escaped surveillance.

Incidentally if you got jabbed there's not a damn thing you can do about it if that turns out to be the case.

Oh, and no, contrary to somewhat-common scaremongering this variant does not appear to have originated in a bunch of unvaccinated HIV+ people in Botswana.  It appears, according to the authorities there, it appeared in travelers, which means it originated in vaccinated people since virtually every nation requires a vaccine to get on an international air flight.  Indeed the authorities confirm that the infected persons who had this variant detected were all fully vaccinated.

In other words exactly the immune evasion I and a few others expected to happen a year ago, and which I flagged as "in process" a few months ago based on some preliminary data from certain sub-sets of Delta infections, on the evidence available today now have have in fact happened and if it did it was CAUSED by the jabs.

Did you think Run-Death-Is-Near was bad?

If this goes sideways for the jabbed -- and it might, but I cannot at this time put a probability on it -- you ain't seen nothing yet.

Oh, look what we have here....

We find evidence for an increased risk of infection by the Beta (B.1.351), Gamma (P.1), or Delta (B.1.617.2) variants compared to the Alpha (B.1.1.7) variant after vaccination. No clear differences were found between vaccines. However, the effect was larger in the first 14-59 days after complete vaccination compared to 60 days and longer. In contrast to vaccine-induced immunity, no increased risk for reinfection with Beta, Gamma or Delta variants relative to Alpha variant was found in individuals with infection-induced immunity.

You stupid *******s.

Oh, it gets better.

As expected there is now another variant that not only evades the vaccines the evidence is being vaccinated may make the infection worse.

Yeah, I warned you about this.  Almost a year ago.

Sit and spin, fools, since you didn't stop this bull**** from the government, the so-called "doctors" and pharma by whatever means you needed to.

its actually worse in percentage terms.  smiley

Yeah, that's bad, and we'll get to that.

But first, another study.  Because, well, why tell you that you likely screwed yourself once when we can get a two-fer at once?

So on the first I have a nasty prediction to make, and you're not going to like it -- but it is, once again, nothing more than reading the data and making a reasonable projection forward based on what it shows.

If you remember one of the nightmare scenarios was an "ADE" sort of response to the jabs, which many so-called "experts" poo-pooed.  They had no evidence to poo-poo it, by the way, and in fact the evidence all ran the other way from history.  We had never successfully vaccinated against a coronavirus producing durable immunity and this is why; the previous trials all aborted out due to VEI (vaccine-enhanced infection) which covers ADE, OAS and a whole related litany of stupidity caused by using non-sterilizing "vaccines."

Then this paper published, which confirmed it was in play with specific focus on these jabs.

In this study we profiled vaccine-induced polyclonal antibodies as well as plasmablast-derived mAbs from individuals who received SARS-CoV-2 spike mRNA vaccine. Polyclonal antibody responses in vaccinees were robust and comparable to or exceeded those seen after natural infection. However, the ratio of binding to neutralizing antibodies after vaccination was greater than that after natural infection and, at the monoclonal level, we found that the majority of vaccine-induced antibodies did not have neutralizing activity.

This was published in July of this year.  It should have been the end of mass-vaccination attempts against Covid because it made clear that binding (infection-enhancing) antibodies were produced by the jabs in abundance and what's worse the majority of the antibodies produced were worthless or harmful.  In short the only reason you got protection was due to a wildly elevated titer in the first place, and once it waned, which it inevitably would, you were going to get ****ed.

We also found a co-dominance of mAbs targeting the NTD and RBD of SARS-CoV-2 spike and an original antigenic-sin like backboost to spikes of seasonal human coronaviruses OC43 and HKU1

That's even worse in that OC43 in particular is believed to have caused a Covid-19 like pandemic in the 1890s.  Backboosting that virus, which circulates all the time in humans, is flat-out nuts because like Covid-19 the pandemic of the 1890s featured all manner of nasty death.  Since OC43 circulates in the population on a roughly four-year cycle anything that enhances that virus is begging to whack people in size -- but not from Covid-19, rather from another virus that usually is nothing other than a nuisance!

Well, now we're seeing the consequences.

UM (Ann Arbor) is reporting a wildly-virulent outbreak of "the worst flu ever" but the testing for Covid is coming back negative.  They're claiming its a strain of flu but that's even worse because that strongly implies that the immune damage isn't Covid-19 specific.

Congratulations *******s, when that gets into a nursing home, and it will, it is going to kill people in size.  I told you so and now you've gone and done it by mandating this crap for healthy young people in colleges and various workplaces.  I hope you enjoy being the agent of killing your grandmother you stupid *******s.  Again, look at the date on that article I cited above, which I've written on before.  We had plenty of warning and should have stopped the jabs immediately in healthy people when that data became apparent because the very last thing you ever want to do is potentiate some other disease with your so-called "strategy."  What's even worse is that this was the only reasonable and plausible explanation for why the drug companies set dosing where they did (the presence of binding antibodies) which means everyone in both the FDA and drug companies knew ******ned well before the first EUA issued that these jabs were likely to do this.

But it doesn't end there.

It is reported that the hospitalization rate for "breakthrough" infections is in the neighborhood of 9%.  That is roughly double the rate the CDC "estimates" for all Covid-19 infections.  In addition the recent outbreak in a CT nursing home with more than a 10% fatality rate has made clear that in terms of actually protecting people from severe outcomes who need it most the vaccines are essentially worthless.

In other words when your protection wanes you are at higher risk of getting severely ill.  That too is logical given the binding antibody titers.  In addition there are now a myriad number of reports of people who got Covid again after being vaccinated yet non-vaccinated second infection reports remain nearly non-existent.  So if you had the disease and then take the jab the evidence is that it ruined your existing protection, at least in part.  How bad that will get is unknown -- but we're going to find out.

The lack of "N" protection after vaccination if you get infected appears to be continuing as well, which is extremely bad because it is "N" protection that is almost-impossible for the virus to evade.  Without that "N" antibody titer from infection you will get reinfected if you were vaccinated and the binding titer will enhance it.  The possibility of a Dengue-fever vaccine sort of disaster is real.  I cannot handicap that in terms of odds but if it occurs mortality among those who got the shot, got infected and did not build an "N" titer the second or third time around is going to be wildly enhanced.

Boosting will make this worse, possibly catastrophically worse, because the boosters will still produce binding antibodies.  The higher the titer goes the more-dangerous that is as protection wanes.  It is very likely that repeated boosting will not only lead to a "coffin corner" problem where protection becomes non-existent or even negative immediately but worse, we already know that strains that fully evade the protective antibodies are in the wild.  Those are very likely to wind up dominant sub-groups of Delta and when that occurs the binding antibodies still attach and thus if you've been vaxxed and that happens you're screwed and there's nothing you can do about it.  We've seen occasional cases where this appears to have happened already; this winter and into 2022 that is likely to become dominant simply because that's how selection pressure works!

The only good news is that if you're in good health even with a materially-enhanced infection profile from the vaccines you're probably not going to die.  On the other hand those who are in the marginal health category, and that specifically includes those with metabolic dysfunction such as diabetes are in extremely serious trouble.

It would be bad enough if that was the end of the bad news.  But it isn't.  In fact, this is worse than enhancing your infection risk.

A total of 566 pts, aged 28 to 97, M:F ratio 1:1 seen in a preventive cardiology practice had a new PULS test drawn from 2 to 10 weeks following the 2nd COVID shot and was compared to the previous PULS score drawn 3 to 5 months previously pre- shot. Baseline IL-16 increased from 35=/-20 above the norm to 82 =/- 75 above the norm post-vac; sFas increased from 22+/- 15 above the norm to 46=/-24 above the norm post-vac; HGF increased from 42+/-12 above the norm to 86+/-31 above the norm post-vac. These changes resulted in an increase of the PULS score from 11% 5 yr ACS risk to 25% 5 yr ACS risk. At the time of this report, these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vac.

I'm generally not much of a fan of these sorts of "scoring systems" for risk factors, but this particular one has a fairly decent record across a hell of a lot of people and a lot of time.  The key factor here is that it looks at actual endothelial damage specific to cardiac risk and not the (long believed but also wildly disputed and, in my opinion, entirely-discredited) look at cholesterol.

The really nasty side of this is that the "normal" level of risk is under 3.5% or less across five years.  These elevations will put someone who was in that low-risk bucket into the 11% range if they started from near-zero on all of these metrics.  Cardiologists, of course, do not typically follow or see people without some reason to believe they have an issue with heart disease and are at risk of cardiac trouble which means that the problem is not that the person at 11% risk is now at 25%, 2.27x (227%) what they were before.

No, it's that the person who was at essentially zero 5 year risk may now be at 11% risk, more or less, which is a wild elevation that may be as much as 10x or more than they were previously.  In other words our mass-jabbing campaign may have created ten million or more additional heart attacks over the next five years and many of those will be fatal, no-warning events.

I remind you that some 400,000 fatal heart attacks happen a year and this data implies that rate could easily more than double.

Worse, there may nothing you can do about it if you took the jab as the damage may be permanent.

Note that there is no body of science that shows that someone who has gotten Covid-19 and recovered has a similar elevated long-term risk profile for cardiac issues.  The absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence but until and unless that evidence is developed it looks pretty clear that by getting the jab you have wildly elevated your heart attack and stroke risk independent of all other factors.

This is not good news at all folks and there is literally no possible positive way to spin it either.

Incidentally this is already showing up in all-cause mortality both here and in the UK.  Theoretical scores are one thing, but when backed up by a stack of corpses.....

 

Tell me again how it is that the 25-44 age group is dying at a higher rate than during last winter's surge, and materially so, when the virus itself doesn't tend to kill people in that age range.

It is increasingly clear that those who held out and stuck up the finger, especially if previously infected, made the right choice.

My flag isn't big enough.

The CDC used to keep a table around that showed their estimated prevalence of Covid-19.  That stopped being updated for months -- right through the middle of the "mandate screamfest" which started in the summer.

Well, it's back -- and it ruins Biden's mandate demands.

 

It gets worse.  Note that the 5th Circuit stated that one of the primary problems with the OSHA mandate is that Covid-19 is not deadly to all but a few people.  Well, in this same publication is the infection fatality rate for population segments.  It's not good for the mandating folks.

It shows that for working age people -- those under 65 years old -- in no group does the IFR exceed 0.25%.

In those under 50 the IFR is no greater than 0.04%!

And in those under 18 it is 0.0009%.  In other words, statistically zero.

There are about 60 million people under 18 in the United States.  If every one of them got Covid-19, by the CDC's numbers, about 500 would die.  This is a vanishingly small number of individuals and is dwarfed by auto accidents.  Indeed six times that number of kids die from drowning every year.  Car crashes are worse (drowning is the second leading cause of death in children.)

May I point out that we've known this -- that Covid-19 almost-never kills children -- since the spring of 2020?

Note that this rate of "had the illness" is roughly a double since May.  How is that possible when it took over a year to reach 20% seroprevalence in the population, which we know it did because of the Red Cross data published in the NEJM?

Simple: The vaccines destroyed existing resistance to Covid-19 and thus turned those who would not seroconvert (as they never got replication-occurring infected, their immune systems being able to defeat the virus before that occurred) into susceptible individuals who then were not only able to get Covid-19 on a symptomatic basis they were wildly successful in spreading it too because it often suppressed symptoms well enough and long enough for those people to be extremely-effective inoculators of others, including others who were jabbed and thus had their existing immunity ruined as well.

But irrespective of this there is zero argument for a mandate by anyone when you have an IFR this low and prior infection this prevalent.  Recommending that a previously-infected person take a jab is the definition of gross malpractice and in fact is a felony assault worthy of the same response as any other since we know that (1) the jabs do have risk, including risk of lethal outcomes, (2) they do not prevent infection, (3) they do not prevent transmission and (4) they do not prevent getting seriously ill either -- they may have some protective value in that regard but there is no evidence, and the CDC has so-admitted, that a person previously infected is able to (1) become reinfected AND (2) infect others.

Dr. Brandon, you have a call on line 1 from Mr. Hands.

... in a not-so-tiny nation called Spain, a nursing home had a nasty virus get into it.

It was March of 2020.  The nasty virus was called Covid-19.  And this nursing home, like so many others all over the world, was full of elderly, morbid people.  The mean age of residents was 85 and 48% were over 80 years old.  It was a killing field, like so many others.....

Within three months 100% of the residents had caught the virus.  Not presumed to have -- proved to have.

How do we know this?  Because almost every one of them seroconverted.  All but three out of 84 of them, to be precise.

Think about that last sentence for a second.

Almost every one of them seroconverted.

How's that possible?  Many of them died, right?  You can't seroconvert if you're dead.

No.  Not only did nearly none die none went to the hospital either because they rapidly figured out how to stop the virus from killing people -- and did exactly that.

You would have thought this would have been all over the news.  In point of fact not one mention of it was made.  Further, not one write-up was made in medical journals either until January of 2021, which I missed.  My bad -- out of the several hundred medical journal pieces, I missed this one.  It was brought to my attention on my forum and my jaw immediately hit the floor.

The jab train must continue, you see.  So must the ventilator train.  So must the money train, the mask train and the rest of the BS we have endured for the last 18+ months.

So must the slaughter for money, the fear, and the lies.

So what did these few nursing homes do that nobody has done since and nobody reported out at the time?

1. Early start of treatment, regardless of the severity of patient symptoms.
  - Antihistamines every 12 h: dexchlorpheniramine 2 mg, cetirizine 10 mg or loratadine 10 mg.

2. Patients with mild or recent-onset symptoms (cough, fever, general malaise, anosmia, polymyalgia):   
   - Azithromycin 500 mg orally every 24 h for 3 days if there is rapid improvement, and for 6 days if the duration of symptoms is prolonged.
   - If pain or fever, acetaminophen 650 mg/6–8 h.
   - Nasal washing and gargling with sodium bicarbonate water (half a glass of warm water with half a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate).

3. If symptoms of severity (dyspnea, breathing difficulty, mild or moderate chest pain, with SpO2 <80%, heart rate >100 beats per minute at any time of the process):
   - Antihistamines + Azithromycin (see mild treatment management)
   - Levofloxacin 500 mg/12 h, up to 14 days of antibiotic treatment from diagnosis.
   - Mepifilin solution, 50 mg/8 h as a bronchodilator, until subjective improvement. Patients with previous lung disease (asthma or COPD) used their usual bronchodilators.
   - If the patient experienced increased breathing difficulty, prednisone 1 mg/kg/day divided into two doses until clinical improvement, and then it was slowly tapered down.
 
4. Prophylactic treatment for close contacts, including all asymptomatic residents:
  - Antihistamines at the same dose as symptomatic patients.

Ed 9/25 11:30 - Reformatted the cut section; it got mangled by the forum.  Still not what I'd like in terms of formatting, but at least it's readable now... and one typo corrected.

Look at that top line.

Cetrizine is otherwise known as Zyrtec.  Loratadine is otherwise known as Claritin.  Dexchlorpheniramine is not often-used in the US anymore, but it used to be.  The other two core drugs were Azithromycin and Levofloxacin, both common antibiotics with the first being the infamous "Zpak" from the HCQ+Zinc+Zpak combination that a fraudulent study was used to discredit.

Both of the first two antihistamines are available over the counter in most nations including the United States.  The dosing they used is twice that on the label.  The two antibiotics are both available anywhere for little money.

Before they started treating people three residents died.  The entire group of them had the common maladies of old age -- hypertension, diabetes, COPD, cardiovascular disease.  Most were using a huge range of existing drugs for their conditions (5 or more.)  

As soon as they started treating people the following happened:

All of our patients evolved satisfactorily and were recovered at the beginning of June. No adverse effects were recorded in any patient and no one required hospital admission. At the end of June, 100% of the residents and almost half of the workers had positive serology for COVID-19, most of them with past infection.

Not one adverse event occurred among these residents and staff and no hospitalizations were necessary either.

In pooled data 28% of the residents in similar nursing homes over the same time period died.  In these two, once they started treating with cheap drugs, leading with those available over the counter in the US, ZERO -- I repeat -- ZERO had a bad reaction to the protocol, ZERO died and ZERO were admitted to a hospital for treatment.

ZERO.

It was one hundred percent effective.

Yes, it's a small sample.  Go do the statistical math on the CI for that size sample and results if you insist.

According to the mechanisms of action described, these drugs would act synergistically in the early stages of the disease, which is why we consider it essential to start the treatment as soon as possible. Once the virus has colonized the respiratory system, the effectiveness is probably more limited, and hence the failure of these treatments in more advanced stages of the disease, when hospital admission is necessary. In our experience, early double antibiotics were effective to control the process in cases with moderate symptoms.

Nobody cared.

Nobody reported on this.

Nobody duplicated it either.

I didn't even realize this study existed; had I known of it guess what I would have added to my protocol when I got Covid-19 the first week of August of this year, since it happens to be in my medicine cabinet already for seasonal allergies?  Uh huh.  Two 60ct bottles of generic Claritin equivalent costs about $12 at WalMart.

Folks, think about this long and hard: In the worst-case scenario for those who this virus should have killed -- it killed nobody.  It should be killing statistically nobody today -- right here, right now.  How to prevent it from doing so was discovered in March and April of 2020 and intentionally ignored worldwide.

It is still being ignored today.

With these numbers there is no reason to fear a Covid-19 infection.  There is no reason to take a vaccine.  There was never a reason to develop a vaccine, especially the ones we have today; infection that does not produce severe disease is sterilizing and thus wildly superior to vaccinated immunity which is now proved to be failing worldwide.  There is no reason to wear a mask.

Every single one of these residents seroconverted and became immune with mild or moderate symptoms consistent with seasonal colds and flus and not one of them was put into the hospital or killed. The treatment is so ******ned cheap and available there's no excuse to not use it instantly on suspicion of infection and prophylactically among everyone else in your household at first sign of trouble.

You think the entire load of BS around HCQ and Ivermectin is bad?  This is a thousand times worse.

Those who died did not do so due to a "novel coronavirus"; we knew how to treat that infection successfully for pennies in March and April of 2020.  Yes, in the first month or two people died because we did not know.

Beyond April of 2020 people died because we let the medical system and governments murder them for profit and they're still doing it today.  We, the people, have allowed this.  We have failed and refused to rise up and hold accountable, personally, every single hospital, doctor, so-called "hero" nurse and every single politician across the globe.  They willfully and intentionally slaughtered millions on a global basis.

The answer to the problem -- to Covid-19 -- was known in March and April of 2020 and yet not published until January of this year, and even then not one single bit of media attention nor a single mention from Fauci, the CDC, the NIH or FDA has been made, all in the interest of Moderna and Pfizer's stock prices and the power-mad jackasses on an international basis -- at the cost of your loved ones' lives.

That wasn't an accident and it still isn't one.
