1/ UK MD who managed a medical service during covid waves, is "struggling with failure to report the morbidity caused by our vaccination program [among HCWs]. Levels of sickness after vaccination are unprecedented" bmj.com/content/372/bm…
2/ "staff are getting very sick & some with neuro symptoms which is having a huge impact on health service function. Even young & healthy are off for days, some for weeks, & some requiring medical treatment. Whole teams are being taken out as they went to get vaccinated together"
3/ "There is no longitudinal safety data (a couple of months of trial data at best) available & these products are only under emergency licensing. What is to say that there are no longitudinal adverse effects that we may face that may put the entire health sector at risk?"
4/ "Flu is a massive annual killer, it inundates the health system, it kills young people, the old the comorbid, and yet people can chose whether or not they have that vaccine (which had been around for a long time)."
5/ "And you can list a whole number of other examples of vaccines that are not mandatory and yet they protect against diseases of higher consequence."
6/ "Coercion and mandating medical treatments on our staff, of members of the public especially when treatments are still in the experimental phase, are firmly in the realms of a totalitarian Nazi dystopia and fall far outside of our ethical values as the guardians of health."
7/ "I and my entire family have had COVID. This as well as most of my friends, relatives and colleagues. I have recently lost a relatively young family member with comorbidities to heart failure, resulting from the pneumonia caused by Covid"
8/ "Despite this, I would never debase myself & agree, that we should abandon our liberal principles & bodily sovereignty, free informed choice & human rights & support unprecedented coercion of professionals, & patients to have experimental treatments with limited safety data"
9/ "This and the policies that go with this are more of a danger to our society than anything else we have faced over the last year."
10/ "What has happened to 'my body my choice?' What has happened to scientific and open debate? If I don’t prescribe an antibiotic to a patient who doesn’t need it as they are healthy, am I anti-antibiotics? Or an antibiotic-denier?"
11/ "Is it not time that people truly thought about what is happening to us and where all of this is taking us?"

1/ “The idea that everybody needs to be vaccinated [against C19] is as scientifically baseless as the idea that nobody does...The vaccine passport should therefore be understood not as an easing of restrictions but as a coercive scheme to encourage vaccination.” Image
2/ “Covid vaccines are essential for older, high-risk people and their caretakers and advisable for many others. But those who’ve been infected are already immune.”
3/ "The young are at low risk, and children—for whom no vaccine has been approved anyway—are at far less risk of death than from the flu”

1/ Justice Thomas: “The 2d Circuit feared then-POTUS Trump cut off speech by using the features that Twitter made available to him. But if the aim is to ensure that speech is not smothered, then the more glaring concern must perforce be the dominant digital platforms themselves”
2/ “Much like with a communications utility, this concentration gives some digital platforms enormous control over Speech"
3/ “The similarities between some digital platforms and common carriers or places of public accommodation may give legislators strong arguments for similarly regulating digital platforms.”

1/ Non-Evidence Based "Ivy League" Totalitarianism. How many "C19+" Cornell kids have been hospitalized? "Cornell intends to require vaccination for students returning to Ithaca, Geneva, and Cornell Tech campuses for the fall semester."
2/ "We have established an easy way for members of the Cornell community to register their vaccination status through using the COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination tool. Beginning April 15, such registration will be required of all Cornell students, faculty, and staff"
3/ "we will begin the semester with normal in-person instruction without a routinely provided online option, but with enhanced safety measures e.g., mandatory high-quality mask wearing, special seating, additional ventilation, surveillance testing, etc."

1/"There is no basis for vaccinating children from C19 as indicated by Dr. Anthony Fauci, none (6 months to 11 years old). The children are at very low risk of illness, especially severe illness from Covid, and children do not spread the illness" aier.org/article/why-we…
2/"vaccines that have been tested thoroughly, such as the Mumps, Measles and Rubella vaccine, the Polio vaccine and others (to prevent vaccine preventable illnesses), are a must to avoid large-scale harm to children."....
3/ ..."But these vaccines have undergone the rigors of research and have a determinant safety record. The current Covid vaccines do not have such a detailed record of either safety or efficacy to warrant a large-scale vaccination of the children"

1/ Dr @andrewbostom w/@naomirwolf on the imposition of RCT-DISPROVEN mask mandates; Are PCR tests for C19 picking up false “+” cold-causing coronaviruses?; Why ALL C19 PCR “+” tests MUST report cycle thresholds, daily, at state dashboards & to individuals
2/ From 2008-2020, 12 NEGATIVE randomized controlled trials on masking, conducted among ~18K persons, worldwide, have ESTABLISHED that masking does NOT reduce community respiratory virus transmission (thread with refs), plus these obs data from RI
3/ Shamefully uninformed, arrogant shutting down of this evidence by Dir of RIDOH. “Masks are effective—Next question”

2/ Ten NEGATIVE studies, focusing primarily on influenza, 2008 to 2016, were “meta-analyzed” (their data “pooled”), here wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26… Image
3/ Independently validating these pooled findings are the results from a single large randomized controlled trial of masking among another cohort of Hajj pilgrims whose enrollment (n=6338) equaled the sum enrollment of all the 10 studies in the May, 2020 “meta-analysis.”
