Dr Tess Lawrie - we don’t need the vaccines when there are safe, cheap and effective treatments for COVID19. #ivermectin costs 3 cents per pill and you need 5 pills to treat one person. It stops infection, treats C19 and reduces deaths. 1/4
Adverse events from Ivermectin vs adverse events from the COVID19 vaccines 2/4
"Low-certainty evidence found ivermectin prophylaxis reduced COVID-19 infection by an average 86%"
"Meta-analysis of 15 trials found ivermectin reduced risk of death compared with no ivermectin" 3/4
"Meta-analyses based on 18 randomized controlled treatment trials of ivermectin in COVID-19 have found large, statistically significant reductions in mortality, time to clinical recovery, and time to viral clearance."

"There could be risks if boosters are widely introduced too soon, or too frequently, especially with vaccines that can have immune-mediated side-effects (such as myocarditis or Guillain-Barre syndrome"
Yet politicians have started rolling out boosters.1/4
"Current evidence does not, therefore, appear to show a need for boosting in the general population, in which efficacy against severe disease remains high... reductions in neutralising antibody titre do not necessarily predict reductions in vaccine efficacy over time" 2/4
"protection against severe disease is mediated not only by antibody responses, which might be relatively short-lived for some vaccines, but also by memory responses and cell-mediated immunity, which are generally longer lived." 3/4

No need to take the injection for the 'greater good' if you've already had COVID.

Dr Peter McCullough: "COVID-19 vaccine is dangerous for those who have already had COVID-19 and have recovered with inferred robust, complete, and durable immunity." 1/n
"COVID-19 vaccination is contraindicated in COVID-19 survivors" Dr Peter McCullough
1) immunity is robust following natural infection
2) higher reporting of adverse events following vaccination in recovered patients
"Prior COVID-19 infection but not ongoing Long-COVID symptoms were associated with an increase in the risk of self-reported adverse events following BNT162b2/Pfizer vaccination."

"Interventions without an evidence base are arbitrary acts of power"
"both the alleged benefits & harms of interventions should be rigorously evaluated and the benefits shown to be proportionate before it is legitimate to act. When in doubt, do nothing."1/

Dear Lizzie,
Pregnancy is a very special time for a new mom, the last thing you need is to feel anxious. I hope you enjoy this rite of passage to motherhood... listen to your baby's heartbeat and feel those little kicks...
Unfortunately, Govt set out to fear-monger their populations:
"The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard‐hitting emotional messaging" 2/n
This launched into action the NOCEBO EFFECT:
the worsening of symptoms and disease outcomes as a result of negative psychological expectations.
If you believe Covid is very deadly, that could make you experience worse outcomes... 3/n

@NCEMAUAE has set unscientific, inhumane and abusive mandates that cause great harm to children and young people in the #UAE.
unvaccinated <12 + vaccinated >12 — 1 PCR test/month
unvaccinated >12 —- 1 PCR test/ week
What is the logic behind this?
@MOEducationUAE @khda @mohapuae
@uaegov @DHA_Dubai
1) what's the point of doing the PCR test once/month. It's not a pregnancy test!
2) testing asymptomatic people is useless. It leads to many false positives.
3) asymptomatic people are not the main drivers of disease
4)PCR tests cannot diagnose infectiousness. They can only detect pieces of genetic material
5)individuals can have a positive test for up to 3 months following an infection despite having recovered and no longer being infectious
6)high Ct > 30 lead mostly to false (+) results
