Many political leaders in Australia are now seen mimicking their international counterparts in attempting to create the impression that we are currently facing a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’.
It is a claim that is not supported by any evidence or logic.
For one thing, there was a “pandemic” when no vaccines were available, so how can being unvaccinated be a ‘cause’ of current infections?
In Australia, there was no serious problem that needed dealing with by mass, enforced vaccination. In the first half of 2021, according to the worldometer, there was only one serious/critical case in the whole country, so where was the emergency?
Interestingly, once people started having the vaccinations, that figure rose to about 300; it is now 68, still a relatively low number in a population of 24 million.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, only about 0.5% of cases in Australia became serious or critical, meaning that either the tests were not reliable, or over 99% of the infected had an immune system that operated effectively. The same pattern was seen in the cruise ships where the infection broke out. The vast majority had either no symptoms or mild symptoms.
It is obvious, to anyone paying attention, that what is occurring is not about health management, rather, it is rather an ill-disguised agenda to escalate government control over the citizenry. Assisting in that agenda, politicians have whipped up a vicious prejudice against the unvaccinated in an effort to demonise the part of society that is not doing what it is told.
Central to prosecuting the prejudice is the false claim that ‘getting vaccinated’ would stop the virus spreading and help the community recover. A report in the medical journal The Lancet has shown that to be untrue. Professor Günter Kampf at the University Medicine Greifswald, Institute for Hygiene, thus concluded that stigmatising the unvaccinated is “not justified.”
Kampf’s argument, which is being supported by other data out of many countries, especially Israel and Gibraltar, is that there is little or no evidence that the vaccines stop transmission or how infectious a person is.
“High COVID-19 vaccination rates were expected to reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in populations by reducing the number of possible sources for transmission and thereby to reduce the burden of COVID-19 disease,” he writes. “Recent data, however, indicate that the epidemiological relevance of COVID-19 vaccinated individuals is increasing.
“In the UK it was described that secondary attack rates among household contacts exposed to fully vaccinated index cases was similar to household contacts exposed to unvaccinated index cases (25% for vaccinated vs 23% for unvaccinated). 12 of 31 infections in fully vaccinated household contacts (39%) arose from fully vaccinated epidemiologically linked index cases. Peak viral load did not differ by vaccination status or variant type.”
Kampf cites similar evidence in the USA and Germany, concluding that it is “wrong to speak of a pandemic of the unvaccinated.” He likens it to previous periods of racist and religious discrimination, when the US and Germany stigmatised parts of their population according to skin colour or religion.
This result is hardly a surprise; the disappointing part is that too few will notice the falsehood. The idea that the vaccines would banish the virus or deal with mutations was always a deliberate lie.
The pharmaceutical companies have never claimed that they would prevent infection or transmission in the first place, only that they would reduce the severity of symptoms. In other words they were treatments: experimental gene therapies that do not meet the Therapeutic Goods Administration’s definition of a vaccine.
They were not called ‘treatments’ however, because the pharmaceutical companies could not get the necessary approvals to sell their product – emergency use authorisation in the US, provisional approval in Australia – especially when it became increasingly clear that there were effective treatments using economical, generic drugs.
By calling them vaccines, the deception was created that mass ‘vaccination’ would remove the risk, and that people would be contributing to the collective good.
In the popular mind it was suggested that it is something like the polio vaccine. If this meant destroying an individual’s right to make personal health decisions that was seen as a price worth paying.
Kampf has called on “high-level officials and scientists to stop the inappropriate stigmatising of unvaccinated people, who include our patients, colleagues and other fellow citizens.” Unfortunately and not surprisingly, that seems to have fallen on deaf ears.
In yet more proof that political leaders are not the slightest bit interested in the ‘science’ they claim to be following, Germany’s chancellor-to-be, Olaf Scholz, is supporting making vaccination against Covid-19 mandatory by early next year.
Political edicts such as these are not just vicious and scientifically unjustified, they are also ignorant and dangerous.
The Belgian epidemiologist, Gerd van den Bossche, has warned that vaccines that do not offer total protection (known as ‘leaky vaccines’) and should not be given to most of the population because it will only encourage the virus to mutate faster than normal.
That could result in a variant appearing that is far more dangerous, in much the same way that overuse of antibiotics might result in the creation of a super bug.
Bossche, and many others, argue that the rational thing to do is protect the vulnerable with vaccines, and let the rest of the population develop collective natural immunity. Especially when it is now clear that natural immunity offers much better protection than the vaccines, which seem to provide only three to four months immunity.
However, the health authorities and politicians are not listening – rather, they are doubling down on their lies and attacks on disobedient citizenry.
