1/ Britain will "achieve C19 herd immunity" on Monday, 4/12/21 as natural acquired post-infection immunity, plus vaccine-induced immunity, will reach "73.4%" telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/04/0… Image
2/ "Last week, antibody testing by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggested that, in the week ending March 14th, around 54% of people in England already had antibodies to the virus"
3/ "Since then, a further 7.1 million people have received a first dose of vaccine and nearly 100,000 have tested positive for the virus, with many more acquiring a silent, asymptomatic infection."

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/ 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?"

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."
statements.cornell.edu/2021/20210402-…
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"
