BU Covid Dash – The Lost Decade…lost generation(?)

The measure of a caring society will always be how it takes care of the most vulnerable. The news some elderly persons are being denied access to being vaccinated against Covid 19 by relatives is cruel. The Covid Dashboard for all countries confirm senior citizens have been affected more than any other group.

The other concern with deep implications for Barbados society is the inability of government to get children back to face to face learning. It is one thing to see key players in the education sector grip and grinning in the media receiving electronic devices to be distributed to children to support online learning, it is another to observe children on the streets during school time. A chat with any teacher about the challenges of online learning an a few become emotional. There is no need to list the challenges in detail, the education directorate and stakeholders are aware. We need to fix it!

Before the pandemic there were legitimate concerns about the quality and relevance of our education program and indiscipline among our youth. We make a lot of noise about the so called lost decade. Soon we may be discussing the lost generation.

A word to an educated country should be enough.

    Pardon the interruption!

    Just a few days ago this writer raised the spectre, in retrospect, that there may well be several lost decades as maybe determined by social scientists..

    Then, you resisted that notion. Now, you suggest that could be a possibility, at least. For a generation is about 28 years.

    Is yours an admission that this Mottley regime was misguided, or at least shortsighted, in so coining the Stuart regime?

    The blogmaster’s position must be interpreted as being provocative at times, you know this from being a long time BU family member. Nothing has changed regarding the will of the political directorate to oversea transformative policies. We continue to tinker at the margins notwithstanding challenges that will present day to day.

  • My idea is that the children should be back in school in January. It is not the children who are dying.

    For the teachers, a vaccine is available to reduce their chances of serious illness. Any teachers who are vulnerable due to comorbities such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and other conditions that compromise their immune system should be afforded special consideration.

    But the damage being done by allowing children’s brains to be idle for so long will be worse than many imagine.

    Bad habits are very hard to break.

    There is no end to this pandemic except in its being declared endemic.

    In other words, we have to learn to live with it and accept that a small minority will die with it.

  • Some would be wanting to get rid of the elderly relative.

    Others believe they are protecting their loved one from the “killer” vaccine.

    Just yesterday, a thirty-something year old couple loudly proclaimed to me that “Fauci bring vaccine to kill people!”

    Apparently, Fauci once publicly declared his intention is to “depopulate” the earth.

    And Obama is to be vilified for promoting “homosexual relations”.

    Donald Trump is to be praised for reversing some of the homosexual rights.

    Also Christians have the responsibility to proclaim the evils of homosexuality because in the Bible, such people were stoned.

    Also, God made them male and female. It is simple to determine which is which.

    If one had a penis, one is male. If one has a vagina, one is female.

    And that would have been the end of it had I not asked what one would call a person who has both male and female organs.

    (Maybe a SHEMALE?)

    I don’t expect these evangelical Christians to spend one second contemplating that question.

    These people just don’t want to know.

    But why does everything revolve around sex for evangelical Christians?

    Even these black ones have based their assessment of Trump SOLELY on his policy on gender and homosexuality. They will excuse every bad policy, even those that discriminate against their own race and do them harm, once homosexuals and transgender people are made uncomfortable for doing things that DO NOT EVEN AFFECT THEIR LIVES.

    So I say all that to describe the nature of the stupidity beast that we are fighting in Barbados.

    Some of these vaccine withholders believe they are saving mummy’s life.

    Logic be damned!

    The people I have spoken with who will not take a vaccine are in their mid to late 60’s.

    That may not be elderly but I suspect it is the same all over Barbados.

    The Groun Keeper’s cousin passed on the offer from the Groun Keeper to drive her to get the vaccine.

    Many older folks know their minds and are not easily shifted from their principled positions even though the principles applied by them may be incomprehensible to younger folk.

    @David, surely this is a case of you being wonderfully provocative re “The news some elderly persons are being denied access to being vaccinated against Covid 19 by relatives is cruel”.

    @Donna speaks to the *’benign’: I am saving Mummy perspective, but pre-cov19 ur pages were periodically full of the rather ‘cruel’ ELDER ABUSE that seemed quite prevalent in Bim!

    It was done by family members who shuffled old parents to senior homes (and then paid scant attention or visits) in order to get hold of family property ; some just shuffled them to their rooms but treated them with even more disregard; or they were cases of preying friends or unknowns who befriended the lonely old folks and then swindled then into nothingness.

    So your remark speaks to many things … but for those with eyes wide open there is indeed a sinister side to the actions you anecdotally mention!

    Unfortunately opportunities for good and bad acts are endless during periods like this … I could suddenly ‘die’ and with very careful planning start a new life somewhere else … that would be a good thing right!🤣

    BTW, the online school debate is a real toughie … you know several kids THRIVE with remote learning right… and then revert to the nonsensical peer pressure (I don’t want to be seen as a nerd, BS) and lax effort and poor grades when in the classroom, yes!

    Of course being IN SCHOOL is important and better for the majority but we do need to fix the issues (precovid) also.

    @Donna, a ‘seminal’ aspect of Christianity is THE procreation. not so! …

    So indeed SEX, SEXUALITY etc is a fundamental aspect of their entire ethos.

    The fact that the good Lord also created hermaphrodites or men more ‘estrogened’ than full of testosterone (so to say) or females flipped the other way is, as you said, NOT a debate they are willing to entertain. Otherwise they would have to unreservedly embrace ALL God’s creations.

    Elder abuse does happen in Barbados. It is not the norm. Again, some are guilty of taking the few cases and exaggerating.

    For instance – we speak of elderly relatives being abandoned at the QEH.

    But,,, HOW MANY ARE PICKED UP FROM THE QEH DAILY?

    For every elderly person who is abandoned, there are many many many more who are promptly picked up.

    Having sat observing just that happen regularly for several years as I sat on the benches outside, awaiting my own transportation after treatment for a life changing injury, I speak about what I KNOW.

  • Holistic medical practitioner, Dr Robert Rowen MD, in his latest newsletter says a major publisher has asked him to write an article on the therapeutic use of Oxidation Therapies (which includes such things as ozone therapy, ultraviolet blood irradiation, high dosage Vitamin C) for inclusion for one of their conventional medicine publications: Elsevier’s Encyclopedia of Infection and Immunity.

    Dr. Rowen and other MDs and naturopaths who advocate for wider acceptance of oxidation therapies believe these alternative treatments are low cost and have proven in peer reviewed small scale observational and RCT studies to be safe with minimal side effects and have significant effectiveness against both bacterial and viral infection, including against infection by Sars-Cov-2. However, medical orthodoxy required large scale randomized control trials before a new medicine or procedure can be promoted to the pubic at large (recent notable exception to that rule being experimental, gene therapy vaccines that actually fall short of offering full immunity like vaccines are supposed to do and as was initially promised).

    Large scale RCTs can cost millions of dollars and since the oxidative therapies, like ozone etc., can’t be patented there is no opportunity for the money invested in running a large trial to be recouped. Also, should oxidative therapies be confirmed to work, they have the potential to cut into the profits of the purveyors of patented medications and vaccines which are often expensive and can have very serious side effects at times.

    Wonderful News. My Chapter on Oxidation Medicine for Conventional Textbook now Online

    #78 The Rowen Report

    The good news that I have for you today is this. Months ago, a major publishing house approached me to write a chapter on alternative approaches for infectious diseases in a CONVENTIONAL medical encyclopedia. What an opportunity, I thought, to perhaps open eyes to conventional medical readers that there might be non-Pharma ways to save lives in an increasingly hostile bacterial world. I did write the chapter, it was peer reviewed, went through some revisions, and was accepted to Elsevier’s Encyclopedia of Infection and Immunity, which will come out in full in the spring. However, my chapter has just been published stand alone, and is available here: (go to original for link to Dr. Rowen’s article)

    I am very honored and proud to be a part of this work, which is a first for us in the oxidative medical field – to have a chapter about oxidation medicine in a major conventional medical book. I believe most people, lay and conventional medical alike, will enrich their knowledge with this peer reviewed manuscript.

    I am certain that others share the same concerns for the three as I do, but the fact that 997 are doing well, weakens their voices.

    The true measure of a society is not the number of people who are doing well, but in how it treats the less fortunate, how it looks after it’s elderly and children, how it treats it weak, hungry and poor and how justice is dispensed.

    Use these metrics and, as is often pointed out, many rich nation fail, but my interest is on Barbados.

    I will attempt to answer your question.

    Despite what the health authorities would have us believe, the vaccine is not for everyone and it does not make logical sense to give it to certain elderly persons.

    Some elderly are at the palliative stage or are so weak that the vaccine response alone can overtax their immune system and hasten their demise. People on the outside that never had to care for an advanced ailing elderly relative will have great difficulty understanding the inherent risks any new medical intervention has to make their condition worse or more painful.

    Vaccines should only be offered to cognitively aware people able to make decisions on the own. Otherwise, they should be left unvaccinated to live out the rest of the little time they have left.

    Unlike the United States, the European Union is very transparent about the number of adverse effects and fatalities from people who were vaccinated and the numbers are staggering. According to their reports through November 13th, they had 30,551 fatalities and 1,163,356 people who had adverse reactions to the vaccines. The European Union had 448 million people in 2020 compared to 331 million in the United States. You do the math on this.

    According to European Medicines Agency, an official site for the European Union, the data for the report came from ADRreports.eu portal that allows users to keep track of the latest vaccine adverse effects. All of the data on the website comes from EudraVigilance that gathers it’s information from regulatory agencies and from pharmaceutical companies that hold the licenses for the vaccines. They do not report the same in the United States and the CDC does not want to make the reports on the J & J vaccine until 2076.

    What are they hiding
    -Pharmaceutical companies that hold the marketing authorisation of a medicine, as well as medicines regulatory authorities in the EEA, are legally required to submit reports of suspected side effects to EudraVigilance. This includes reports received from healthcare professionals and patients. This excludes non-serious side effects occurring outside the EEA.

    -The web report does not include reports from studies (e.g. clinical trial, non-interventional study) or other types of reports (i.e. only spontaneous reports).

    -A side effect is classified as ‘serious’ if it (i) results in death, (ii) is life-threatening, (iii) requires hospitalisation or prolongation of existing hospitalisation, (iv) results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity (as per reporter’s opinion), (v) is a congenital anomaly/birth defect, or (vi) results in some other medically important conditions.

I have faith in my own abilities.

    So….. I love, like and respect men who see women as their equal. I love, like and respect men who place no added restrictions on me or have no expectations of me because of my gender. I am pro-equality for women.

    When I encounter such rare creatures I appreciate them to the max.

    And no, the archives show that I do not inject sex into conversations that have nothing to do with sex. I am, of course, happy to discuss sex when it is relevant to the discussion.

    Nothing wrong with discussing sex. I have discussed it with my son. I am absolutely certain that his partners will be appreciative of the results of our discussions.

    Now… if we scroll backwards we will see how sex found its way into the discussion. It was not as a joke or a gratuitous exercise in sexual stupidity as your intervention was (and always is) but a serious observation of the intersection of covid vaccine conspiracy theories with the “Evangelical church’s condemnation of policies that recognise the rights of the LBGT persons and their embracing of Donald Trump simply because of that one position that he so expediently took.

    From the conversation I had with that couple, it is clear that in Barbados, one may be able to draw a through line from Donald Trump’s reversal of some of Obama’s LBGT recognition of human rights policies and blind acceptance of his pronouncements on covid.

    Now, wrt marriage, correct, it is true that the Church is acting as an agent of the State but there is also the civil option by non-religious officials.

    So… the Church can continue to do its thing in its way for its people and the State can expand its civil option to include homosexual persons.

    Marriage has been defined for us by the Church. This Church official acting as an agent of the State thing is a leftover from when the Church and State were intertwined. It was convenient to allow it to continue.

    Could be the relatives are doing the old folks a favour if they are kept from getting an mRNA vax.

    The very respectable, mainstream, medical journal “Circulation” recently published a paper entitled Mrna COVID Vaccines Dramatically Increase Endothelial Inflammatory Markers and ACS Risk as Measured by the PULS Cardiac Test: a Warning. The paper explains that artery inflammatory markers increase significantly post vax and this condition persists up to 2.5 months post 2nd vax as measured to date.

    I am not a medical person, but I assume the ACS above would probably stand for Acute Coronary Syndrome. The Mayo clinic defines it thusly:

    Acute coronary syndrome is a term used to describe a range of conditions associated with sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart.

    One such condition is a heart attack (myocardial infarction) — when cell death results in damaged or destroyed heart tissue. Even when acute coronary syndrome causes no cell death, the reduced blood flow changes how your heart works and is a sign of a high risk of heart attack.

    Acute coronary syndrome often causes severe chest pain or discomfort. It is a medical emergency that requires prompt diagnosis and care. The goals of treatment include improving blood flow, treating complications and preventing future problems.

    mayoclinic(DOT)org/diseases-conditions/acute-coronary-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20352136

    Here is the last sentence from the Circulation paper’s abstract: “We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination”.

    Would be interesting to see how the results would compare if similar tests were run for the other types of Covid-19 vaccines.

    The latest appeal has come from members of the entertainment fraternity who say a resumption of major events in the sector depends on more people getting their jab for COVID-19.
    Party promoter and former president of the Barbados Association of Masqueraders, Chetwin Stewart, was among the group spotted at Abed’s in Swan Street, The City, yesterday distributing T-shirts to the vaccinated.
    “The Prime Minister said it and it is common sense. The ban won’t be lifted until you reach a certain percentage of people being vaccinated and that is what we in the entertainment industry need. Persons like me haven’t worked for over a year and a half and we need to get back to work.
    “The entertainment industry is way bigger than promoters like me, DJs and calypsonians. There are lighting and stage people and it affects the sales of hair, nails and drinks,” Stewart said.
    Because of the COVID-19, pandemic major events such as the Crop Over Festival
    were cancelled in 2020 and this year.
    Out of the 250 shirts printed yesterday, Stewart, members of the 98.1 The One team and other volunteers with the National Vaccination Programme had distributed over 150. The shirts which showcase national colours, also have the words “Get Ready, Leh We Go”.
    “The plan was just to meet here at Abed’s and then distribute them, but when we arrived, people were coming with their IDs and in no time we had given out over 150 shirts.
    “The whole idea is for people like us to convince their friends and family to get vaccinated; that is what we wanted. Everybody won’t get vaccinated, but we need to get a number that would help us lift these curfews and get back out there,” Stewart added.
    The goal is to print 5 000 shirts and distribute them at other sites across the country.

  • Expert: Pill another layer of protection
    By Tony Best
    It is not a panacea for treatment, but an important addition to the regimen designed for those people infected with COVID-19 in Barbados and elsewhere around the world.
    That’s how Dr Wayne Greaves, a key Bajan infectious disease specialist in the United States, has described the promising COVID-19 pill which is to be manufactured in almost 100 developing countries under special licensing deals signed by Pfizer and Merck. The aim is to give more than a billion poor people around the world ready, cheaper and special access to treatment.
    ‘Not a panacea’
    “The pill is not a panacea” for the illnesses caused by the disease, said Greaves, a key scientist at a large pharmaceutical corporation in the US. “The pill is being made available to infected people and will be helpful for those who don’t want to take a vaccine to prevent infection, hospitalisation and death. It is an important addition to the options that Barbados and many other United Nations (UN) member states have put in place to manage COVID-19.
    “A vital limitation is that a person must first be diagnosed as having COVID-19. That really means that for several countries, Barbados among them, tests must be available and people must test positive and then take the pill. It is not a pill that should be taken by everyone.”
    The former professor of medicine at Howard University in Washington D.C. said the pill “must be taken within the first three to five days of infection in order to be effective”.
    Under an international agreement, Pfizer and Merck, the two major pharmaceutical corporations which developed separate pills, have agreed to provide royalty free licences to the Medicines Patent pool, a non-profit United Nations-backed group. The manufacturers are to provide 95 countries with the formulas for the pills so that national manufacturers can sell the medication in a long list of African and Asian states, once government regulators in those places have authorised their use as safe.
    UN sources have indicated that Barbados and many of its Caribbean neighbours might not be among the first tier of developing countries which have been given top priority authorisation and access to the pill. Manufacturers in low and middle income states are being given access to the medication at less expensive prices than say in the US, Canada, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Cyprus, Japan, Malta, Russia, China and other rich countries.
    The Pfizer agreement will, for instance, allow manufacturers to acquire sub-licences so they can sell the medication for use in many nations under the brand name “Paxlovid”. The pill is meant to be taken at home as a five-day regimen of 30 pills, ten of which are a low dose of an HIV drug labelled as “ritonavir” designed to slow the breakdown of the Pfizer pill.
    Pfizer plans to waive royalties in all nations included in the special agreement as long as COVID-19 remains a World Health Organisationdesignated public health emergency.
    Critics are complaining that the arrangement did not go far enough to ease the financial and other roadblocks such as inequality of access to COVID-19 treatment in developing nations. Cuba, Iraq, Libya, Jamaica and Brazil have been excluded from the agreement and must buy the pill directly from Pfizer at higher prices.
    Not surprised
    “What has happened with the distribution of the pill is typically what happens with COVID treatments,” said Greaves. “The fact that not all middle and low income countries are among the first to get it is not surprising. If Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana, for instance, were getting it but not Barbados, that would surprise me. I am not surprised that the Caribbean as a group is not among the first tier getting it. However, I am confident that subsequently as a group, Barbados, Jamaica and their neighbours will get it. It has happened before.”
    As for the overall COVID-19 picture in his birthplace, the Barbadian scientist said that although the death toll surpassed the 200 mark a few days ago, up from 42 in August, it gave Barbados something to be encouraged about.
    “I don’t want to be too optimistic but it looks as if Barbados may be turning the corner when it comes to infections. Death rates seem to be on their way down and so are hospitalisations and fatalities,” said Greaves.
    He has urged the country to impose limited mandates that require certain categories of workers – health care professionals and employees of security agencies, police, military and fire services – to be vaccinated.
    “I think the Government should rethink what it is doing in some of these sensitive areas. Many countries are imposing mandates in one form or another in order to save lives and maintain a cap on hospitalisations. Barbados should do so as well,” he said. “I am not sure why it hasn’t acted more aggressively on mandates. Targeted vaccinations are still needed.”

  • Judgment on vaccine mandate
    In September, United States President Joe Biden issued an executive order requiring all federal workers to be vaccinated by November 22, 2021.
    He also ordered the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) to issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) mandate requiring certain categories of federal workers who fall under the ambit of OSHA to be vaccinated by January 4, 2022, or provide weekly negative COVID results at their own expense.
    On November 4, 2021, the Biden administration announced that this ETS would extend to private companies which have 100 or more employees.
    Since this announcement there have been 34 lawsuits filed against the vaccine or testing mandate. The most notable was an action filed in the Federal Appeals Fifth Circuit Court on November 6 by several private business owners in which they contested the constitutionality of the vaccine and testing mandate issued against private businesses.
    On November 6, the Appeals Court issued a temporary stay of the mandate pending judicial review of the matter. However, the Justice Department applied to lift the stay but this was rejected by the court which delivered a 22-page judgment reaffirming the stay.
    Although Barbados is not bound by US judgments and in many ways our laws diverge, I still believe the judgment provides useful insight into our local debate surrounding vaccine and testing mandates.
    Protecting employees
    My favourite part of the written judgment is that it confirmed something I have said repeatedly in my articles and public forums for the past several months: an employer’s duty to provide a safe place of work does not extend to protecting employees from diseases that originate in the wider population, but is limited to those caused by workplace processes or equipment. To assert otherwise is to overly extend the duty of the employer to what can be an impossible and intrusive standard.
    Similarly on Pages 8 and 9 of its judgment, the Appeals Court noted that OSHA’s “attempt to shoehorn an airborne virus that is both widely present in society (and thus not particular to any workplace) and nonlife- threatening to a vast majority of employees” into the purview of its powers under the legislation, was an overreach.
    The court criticised the mandate as being “a one-size-fits-all sledgehammer that makes hardly any attempt to account for the differences in workplaces (and workers) that have more than a little bearing on workers’ varying degrees of susceptibility . . . . The ongoing threat of COVID-19 is more dangerous to some employees than to other employees . . . .
    “A 28-year-old trucker spending the bulk of his work day in the solitude of his cab is simply less likely vulnerable to COVID-19 than a 62-year-old prison janitor. Likewise, a naturally immune, unvaccinated worker is presumably at less risk than an unvaccinated worker who has never had the virus.”
    The court also criticised the underinclusiveness of the mandate, such as failing to enforce testing on vaccinated workers since “in its fullest force, the mandate cannot prevent vaccinated employees from spreading the virus in the workplace or prevent unvaccinated employees from spreading the virus in between weekly tests”. It added that the “under-inclusive nature of the mandate implies that the mandate’s true purpose is not to enhance workplace safety, but instead to ramp up vaccine uptake by any means necessary”.
    I have found the same defects in all the vaccine or testing mandates that have been implemented by companies in Barbados. The policies have been overly broad, such as imposing unnecessary testing mandates on remote workers who pose no threat to the workplace, and conveniently underinclusive by not mandating occasional testing of vaccinated workers. The court’s decision shows that these factors are relevant in determining the constitutionality and enforceability of these mandates. No doubt these factors will also influence the decisions of our local judiciary when the mandates are litigated.
    Finally, we can no longer logically assert that the COVID-19 vaccines are the same as our childhood vaccines, since the latter not only stopped transmission, but in most cases only required one shot.

    Nevertheless, sex has its place.
    Its place is not EVERYWHERE. Those who behave as though it is are irritating.

    Now on to the definition of marriage. When I said it was defined for us by the Church I really meant for Barbadian society. Most Barbadians have an issue with the idea of gay unions being called marriage which they understand as taking place between a man and a woman. I don’t give a damn what you call it but I see no need to argue about it.

    With respect to the Anglican church. That is where I connected with God. I no longer need an intermediary. The Anglican church was good to me. It helped to heal my wounds and release my creativity. It was less rigid, restricted and dogmatic than other churches. It always questioned itself and therefore it learned and grew. It demanded no pledge of allegiance to a monarch, titular head or otherwise.

    As I have said before, I have no intention of throwing out the baby with the bathwater, nor reinventing myself as an African. I do not seek to purge myself of all things British. I seek only to reclaim the part of me that was stripped away.

    History happened. I am a Caribbean woman of African AND BRITISH descent. I embrace the whole.

    Truth is, if the British were no longer racist and our equality was recognised in word and deed, their colour would be of no importance to me. And history would stay in the past.

    The reality is that we are still not embraced as equals and therefore I reject their monarch as the head of my government.

    P.S. I was made to understand that Henry did not found the Anglican church but merely switched the alliance of the monarchy to an already existing church. The officials of the church got many things wrong in those days but that is no longer the case. I deal in the present. There is presently not a Henry the Eighth in sight.

    Are We Losing America, Part 1

    Almost from the beginning of COVID19, Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, MD at NY Maimonides Hospital, called out the initial treatment protocol based on a diagnosis of pneumonia as wrong. He noted the breathing problems that were associated with low blood oxygen levels, were more like altitude sickness than pneumonia. He began the awakening of COVID as a blood disorder with oxygen delivery impairment. These insights, and the recognition of the most serious COVID illness being highly associated with certain nutritional deficiencies including Vitamin D, C, and zinc, opened many medical eyes leading to preventive strategies, and successful early treatment protocols using nutrients and long-used safe repurposed medications.

    Had the NIH, CDC, and the media trumpeted this knowledge, those deaths and the world’s paralyzing fear, would have stopped, but those successes were suppressed, maligned, even ridiculed, and ultimately censored. Instead, the world was told the LIE that no such successful early treatment exists, and folks were advised to only go to the hospital if they had trouble breathing {covid19treatmentguidelines.nih(DOT)gov/therapies/antiviral-therapy/summary-recommendations/}

    Early treatment, the norm for any health problem, was suddenly and mystifyingly ignored. That this happened in many first world countries could not be by accident. Some coordinating forces had to be driving this dis-information and many fingers point to Big Pharma. Their goal of vaccinating the entire world would be astoundingly profitable. No way they’d let early treatment get in their way by preventing death! Lest you find such evil callousness hard to imagine, please know that lawsuits have already proven multiple Pharma companies felonious and ruthless. Their COVID19 rushed vaccine products are dispensed under an emergency use authorization (EUA) and by law EUAs are only possible if there is no meaningful treatment available. Prevention and early treatment are aggressively censored to protect their vaccination program.

    Then we have CDC with their mantra of vaccines as “safe and effective” despite major challenges to their safety and even some vaccines effectiveness. The “safe” claim is their marketing phrase and NOT scientific truth, as the parents of countless pre-COVID vaccine-injured children can attest from fully approved vaccines on the CDC children’s vaccine schedule.

    COVID-19 Mortality Risk Correlates Inversely with Vitamin D3 Status, and a Mortality Rate Close to Zero Could Theoretically Be Achieved at 50 ng/mL 25(OH)D3: Results of a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

    by Lorenz Borsche 1,*,Bernd Glauner 2 and Julian von Mendel 3

    Vaccination is an important part in the fight against SARS-CoV-2 but, with respect to the situation described above, should not be the only focus. One strong pillar in the protection against any type of virus infection is the strength of our immune system [12]. Unfortunately, thus far, this unquestioned basic principle of nature has been more or less neglected by the responsible authorities. (My emphasis /BC) It is well known that our modern lifestyle is far from optimal with respect to nutrition, physical fitness, and recreation. In particular, many people are not spending enough time outside in the sun, even in summer. The consequence is widespread vitamin D deficiency, which limits the performance of their immune systems, resulting in the increased spread of some preventable diseases of civilization, reduced protection against infections, and reduced effectiveness of vaccination [13].

    In this publication, we will demonstrate that vitamin D3 deficiency, which is a well-documented worldwide problem [13–20], is one of the main reasons for severe courses of SARS-CoV-2 infections. The fatality rates correlate well with the findings that elderly people, black people, and people with comorbidities show very low vitamin D3 levels [16,21–23].(My emphasis /BC) Additionally, with only a few exceptions, we are facing the highest infection rates in the winter months and in northern countries, which are known to suffer from low vitamin D3 levels due to low endogenous sun-triggered vitamin D3 synthesis [24–27].

    Vitamin D3 was first discovered at the beginning of the 19th century as an essential factor needed to guarantee skeletal health. This discovery came after a long period of dealing with the dire consequences of rickets, which causes osteomalacia (softening of bones). This disease especially affected children in northern countries, who were deprived of sunlight and often worked in dark production halls during the industrial revolution [28]. At the beginning of the 20th century, it became clear that sunlight can cure rickets by triggering vitamin D3 synthesis in the skin. Cod liver oil is recognized as a natural source of vitamin D3 [29]. At the time, a blood level of 20 ng/mL was sufficient to stop osteomalacia. This target is still the recommended blood level today, as stated in many official documents [30]. In accordance with many other publications, we will show that this level is considerably too low to guarantee optimal functioning of the human body.

    Belgian Doc on TV:

    Right now, here, we see that a majority of patients have break through infections. Very different from a few weeks ago when the majority of the ICU was still unvaccinated, but right now that is not true anymore. The patients in the ICU of our hospitals in GZA, I checked it yesterday, are all vaccinated.

    Did Fauci just admit complete vaxx failure?

    In a November 12 podcast session with the New York Times, Fauci was forced to admit the fact that the vaccines do not reliably protect their recipients from serious Covid or death.

    Called upon to explain the data coming from Israel – a country with one of the highest vaccination rates in the world – Fauci said the following:

    “They are seeing a waning of immunity not only against infection but against hospitalization and to some extent death, which is starting to now involve all age groups. It isn’t just the elderly”

    In other words, the vaccines’ protective efficacy wanes not only in regard to the threat of infection, but also in regard to severe Covid and death. Speaking about the effectiveness of the vaccines in countries with high vaccination rates, Fauci admitted:

    “It’s waning to the point that you’re seeing more and more people getting breakthrough infections, and more and more of those people who are getting breakthrough infections are winding up in the hospital.”

    Even though Fauci tries to palliate the hard impact of his answer in soft language, the harsh truth behind his words is painfully evident.

    Fauci’s words amount to the admission that the vaccinated are getting infected and more and more of them are ending up in hospital where they keep succumbing to Covid at increasing rates.

    strong>Heavy burden of health care

    BARBADOS’ BATTLE against COVID-19 has been a costly one for Government. This country has a health care sector that has its various challenges, but one about which all Barbadians should be proud, especially when considering that much richer countries do not offer the same level of public care.
    Private health care providers here also offer services that can match many in the world.
    While public health care is considered free at the point of delivery to Barbadians, they do contribute to it via the taxes they pay.
    But for all intents and purposes, public health care is free. Before the pandemic there was a major challenge with the cost of treatment for people suffering from chronic non-communicable diseases. That problem has not gone away, and health experts have suggested it has worsened during this period.
    The health sector, via the Ministry of Health and its various departments, benefited from a large share of Government’s budget before COVID-19, and has required even more funding since then. Just last week, while delivering a Ministerial Statement in the House of Assembly on Government’s Mid-Term Budget Review, Minister in the Ministry of Finance Ryan Straughn reported that a third wave of COVID-19 here saw an additional $48 million provided to the Ministry of Health and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) to respond to the pandemic.
    The minister added that by the end of September, the QEH had already exhausted its COVID-19 vote for this fiscal year due to the significant increase in cases during the summer. The hospital was voted $120 million in this year’s Estimates approved by Parliament, so one can see the extent to which the pandemic has drained its financial resources.
    No one knows when the pandemic will end, and
    other health-related challenges will also persist, if not worsen. This suggests that an increasing amount of Government’s financial resources will be required by the health sector in 2022. This will not be a major problem if Government’s revenues recover as a result of the expected tourism rebound having a positive effect on economic activity.
    However, even if this turns out to be the case, which we hope it does, the issue of health care financing is one that the authorities will have to revisit sooner or later. While this matter may not be one currently on the minds of most Barbadians, it is not one we can afford to delay too long.
    Speaking in March during the Estimates Debate, Minister of Health and Wellness Jeffrey Bostic said Cabinet was reviewing a costing study related to a health care financing model. He suggested the overall process was at a preliminary stage.
    While no one should want to burden Barbadians with increased costs at a time when the cost of living is high, the heavy burden now being carried by the health care sector, especially the financial one, illustrates the need for Government to prioritise health care funding reform.
    No one knows when the pandemic will end, and other health-related challenges will also persist, if not worsen.

  • John; It isn’t floods. It might be Sunlight hours + other factors.

    Do the math.

    Barbados: Low rainfall ->high Daylight Hours -> High Vitamin D ->> Low Covid incidence.
    Barbados: High rainfall /widespread flooding -> low daylight hours -> Low Vitamin D ->> High Covid incidence.

    Plus a plethora of other factors that probably influence disease spread.

    BC just had alot of flooding and looks like Israel too.

    In a few weeks if patterns remain true to form, both will see a surge in COVID, BC first then Israel.

    I said so for Spain, Italy and Germany when they experienced floods and sure enough their cases surged.

    What’s amazing for me is that no one has picked up on the obvious patterns.

    Surges are a part of a sequence and invariably follow floods.

    It would appear the whole of Japan agrees with the remarks.

    Since the Japanese are among the longest lived humans on the planet (check with the resident BU longevity expert if you doubt me) and the Japanese switched to Ivermectin the remarks mussee right.

    Japan is also almost COVID free.

    Grenada is there too … anyone know if the folks in Grenada resorted to Ivermectin?

    126 million Japanese and 1.4 billion Indians cant be wrong and would clearly show the musings of an ex scholar to be absolutely correct..

    If Japan gets hit by any serious flooding the question would be whether the few remaining cases could be the seeds for future spread.

    I reckon Israel is going to be an interesting country to observe.

    Cases are very low but it has had serious flooding in the past few days.

    By Christmas we will know.

    Watch British Columbia too, good chance it will experience a COVID surge in the next month or so.

    Europe is so screwed up at the moment that the only thing they can do is try Ivermectin and see if it works for them.

    Scorpion Biblical Plague? 3 Killed As Scorpions Swarm Egyptian City

    Written by: World Israel News Staff

    Scorpions descend on Aswan, Egypt, killing three and wounding 450 people. Residents of Aswan, Egypt were sent scrambling as a mass of scorpions and snakes descended upon the southern Nile city, in a scene reminiscent of a Biblical plague.Three people were killed and at least 450 were wounded from scorpion stings in a one day period, Egyptian officials reported on Saturday, after violent thunderstorms and hail had dislodged the scorpions from their regular hangouts.Seeking safety from the elements, the creatures swarmed Aswan en masse, making their way into private homes, apartments, and the streets of the city.

    The Egyptian black fat-tail scorpion is one of the world’s deadliest predatory arachnids. Just one fat-tail sting contains enough venom to kill an adult in less than an hour. The adverse weather conditions also included sandstorms and high winds, which felled electricity lines and led to power cuts which slowed down emergency response times. The scorpion onslaught caused the Egyptian Health Ministry to assume an emergency protocol and redirect its doctors from giving COVID-19 vaccinations to treating scorpion stings.

    Health Ministry official Ehab Hanafy told Al-Ahram news agency that doctors had been called back from vacation and weekend breaks to provide support for scorpion sting victims. Anti-venom was distributed at local health clinics and hospitals, he added. As of Sunday, 80 people were being treated at Aswan University Hospital, with hundreds of others receiving care at nearby medical centers.

    While snakes were also reportedly washed out of their usual habitats and flooded into the town, the deaths and serious injuries were all due to scorpion stings. Aswan’s governor, Ashraf Attia, advised residents to stay away from areas with trees or heavy brush.

    Nurse Sounds Alarm On Heinous Medical Malpractice: Immediate Intubation, Remdesivir Killed Covid Patients
    25 Comments / Health / By Steven Ahle
    Neither myself nor this site is able to confirm anything that Helen Smith, a veteran nurse who has worked in the ICU section of hospitals for years has related of her experiences working with COVID-19 patients and the procedures used by the hospital that she has witnessed. She does not blame the doctors whom she says have to follow the higher-ups at the hospital. She related these experiences in an interview with The Gateway Pundit.

    Smith said: “I have been a nurse for almost 25 years. Most of my career has been in ICU. I have never seen anything like this in my whole career. They are not allowing doctors to do what they want to do to help the patients. Everything is being regulated by higher-ups in the hospitals.” Smith related the many practices that would normally be laid at the feet of the hospital’s patients. She says those practices were unorthodox, unhygienic and dangerous practices that were implemented within medical facilities during the pandemic.

    Smith continued:

    “They were dying because doctors were immediately intubating patients and providing them with remdesivir, an expensive drug that does nothing to treat covid or respiratory illness, but shuts down the organs.” “At the beginning, they weren’t even allowing them oxygen; they were just intubating them right away. At the time, they said they didn’t want to spread the Covid so they wouldn’t do high flow, or BIPAP or any other therapeutics, they just automatically got intubated, intubated with a breathing tube, a ventilator.”

    Doctors began withholding hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, medications under guidance from the American Medical Association, Center For Disease Control, and Food and Drug Administration. Both hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin have been proven as effective in other countries. Many third-world countries have a better record against the virus than the United States has. In Africa, only 6% of the population is vaccinated, but their infection rates are below ours.

    “A major part of why people were dying from Covid is because they were putting people on remdesivir and intubating them. The only drug they were giving people is remdesivir – and we still are. Remdesivir costs $5,000 a bag and it doesn’t do anything, It can shut your organs down. A lot of the covid patients treated with remdesivir end up on dialysis. Intubating patients is basically a death sentence, especially with the Delta variant, we save very few.

    “At one point we had a doctor giving patients ivermectin because he was having such success in his outpatient clinic and they came through and the management of the Cleveland Clinic, the higher-ups, threatened to fire him if he continued to do so. He’s not confrontational, he just kind of goes along to get along. I will say, in his defense, that he will give it to the nurses if we get it.”

    “When the vaccines were first administered, you would not believe the number of strokes we got. The Cleveland Clinic is a stroke center and I had never seen anything like it. I had two patients with drains in their brain to relieve the pressure, which is rare, you don’t see that often. A lot of strokes – one who got MS – we had a bunch of different critically ill patients, and if you look at their medical records, they don’t attribute their death to the vaccine they just got – they don’t say it’s from the vaccine.”

    I do not believe we should take everything she says without question, but neither should we trust the government or the hospitals. We need an independent and unbiased study into the various treatments for the virus to see if what we are doing is indeed the best treatment. And if not, we need to use the most effective treatment prescribed by the researchers based on results and not on mandates.

  • UK HEALTH SECURITY AGENCY RELEASES SHOCKING DATA ON COVID DEATHS
    Cooter COOTER NOVEMBER 24, 2021
    There has been extensive debate over the COVID vaccines ever since they were made available to the public. Despite projecting doubt, prior to stealing the 2020 Presidential Election, Joe Biden now wants to force every American to get “the jab”. This tyrannical abuse of American’s constitutional rights does not give the slightest consideration for natural immunity. Now, data is surfacing that the overall efficacy of the hastily approved COVID vaccines may not be as good as Biden professes it to be.
    A health security agency out of the United Kingdom has released some startling new data. The information shows how many COVID deaths have occurred recently in England. The most alarming part of these reports is the number of fully vaccinated who have died.

    This is completely contradictory to the Biden administration’s over exaggerated claims. Biden leans into the microphone and whispers how getting the shot will save you and your loved ones. Certainly, the vaccine has saved lives, but it’s clearly no longer a guarantee.Furthermore, as time goes by, it is becoming increasingly clear that a “COVID jab” may not be the best choice for everyone. Healthy people are reporting strong and robust recovery after catching the virus. Once you have had COVID, natural immunity is triggered.

    Many scientific studies are proving natural immunity to be multiple times more robust in fighting off breakthrough sickness. If natural immunity keeps you from getting sick, it goes without saying that you will not die. That is not the data that has surfaced over breakthrough cases for the vaccinated. In fact, the report from the UK Health Security Agency showed that there were more deaths from COVID within the vaccinated than within the unvaccinated. The data spanned a vast array of age groups and encompassed a wide timeframe. The percentage of deaths among the vaccinated compared to the unvaccinated was five times as many. These numbers are both startling and perplexing.

    If everyone must get the COVID shot to save their lives, then why are more people dying of COVID who got the shot as opposed to those who didn’t? Another key part of the data involved the age group where most of the COVID deaths have occurred in England. Those people, vaccinated or unvaccinated, who were over 80-years-of-age, made up the vast majority of the COVID-related deaths. This virus has been and still is about the immune system compromised, especially among the very old.

    Other data released from the European Union database, shows even more concerns over the vaccine. There have been 30,551 reported fatalities from the COVID vaccine. In addition, well over a million people have reported having adverse reactions to one of the shots. As Joe Biden attempts to “ram a jab” in every American’s arm, including young children, the scientific evidence no longer supports such policy. Vaccinations are not necessary for everyone. They never have been. Mandates are wrong, but they also might kill someone.

    In an increasing number of situations, it may be worse to get the shot than to catch and recover from COVID. These decisions must be made on a personal level. The new data released out of the UK proves this to be true. No company, no government, no leader, nor anyone apart from the individual themselves should make a decision on whether to get the COVID vaccine. If someone dies after getting “the COVID jab”, who will be held accountable?

    If we want to truly “follow the science”, the science says vaccines are not for everyone. Truth be known, the vaccination may not save your life, but it may well kill you instead. As Joe Biden continues to push his tyrannical vaccine mandates, we can only hope truth wins.

  • COULD THIS BE TRUE? OR IS THIS RIGHT WING STUFF?
    New York Times Admits More Coronavirus Deaths Under Joe Biden Despite Vaccines

    It was reported that more Americans have died from the Chinese coronavirus under President Joe Biden than last year despite widespread vaccine availability. Data was reported from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showing that the U.S. had reported 386,233 coronavirus-related deaths in 2021. The U.S. had 385,343 deaths in 2020 and it is expected to increase.

    Experts explained that the fatalities were mainly focused on crucially lower than needed vaccination rates but also on the relaxation of precautions like social distancing and masks, as well as the rise of the highly contagious Delta variant. Public health experts stated that many Americans act as if Covid-19 is not a crisis and that the transition will occur eventually.

    Many are refusing to be vaccinated in sufficient numbers to make the transition to endemicity, which would mean that the virus would still circulate at a lower level. Only 59% of Americans have been fully vaccinated, which is the lowest level of vaccination among all seven Group countries. Blaming lower-than necessary vaccination rates is absurd since the vaccine is widely available throughout the year.

    The same cannot be said about 2020 when the world was only beginning to understand what the virus was. Vaccines were not readily available for all eligible people until 2018, despite Trump’s efforts to expedite vaccine production through Operation Warp Speed. It was reported that the increase in fatalities was due to “relaxation of everyday precautions”, which was one of the main incentives offered to Americans during the vaccine rollout. Many of them promised that vaccines would allow Americans to return to pre-pandemic normalcy, which proved to be false as many blue states and localities reintroduced restrictions.

    Florida is the only state that challenges the claim that lax mitigation measures contribute to the increase in fatalities and spread. Gov. Ron DeSantis was subject to constant scrutiny throughout the pandemic for prioritizing personal liberty and refusing to confine the state during the pandemic. Florida has the lowest per capita coronavirus rate in the country. The most recent Florida figures show a 5% decrease in cases over 14 days.

    States that have reinstituted mandates like Illinois aren’t faring so well. They report an average daily of 4,599 cases or 36 per capita. This is an increase of 73% over the same period. Similar trends are also being observed in other blue states like Pennsylvania, New York, and Michigan. Last year Biden blamed Trump for the deaths from coronavirus in the United States. Biden said that anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should be removed from office as President of the United States of America.

  • Fauci hints that definition of ‘fully vaccinated’ could change to include boosters
    By
    Sarah May
    on
    November 25, 2021

    In the latest shifting of pandemic goalposts, Dr. Anthony Fauci declared over the weekend that while there are currently no concrete plans to adjust the official definition of “fully vaccinated” to encompass booster injections, such a change could occur if it is deemed warranted by emerging data, as Fox News reports.

    It was just last week that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized both Moderna and Pfizer’s vaccination boosters for every adult age 18 and older, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made a new recommendation urging that age group to receive an additional shot six months after receiving their second of the two shots that were previously believed to suffice.

    While those developments on their own do not mean that a change in definition is inevitable, according to Fauci, such an adjustment could indeed be made if incoming data points in that direction.

    “We’re going to take a look right now at what the durability is of the booster,” Fauci said during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, adding, “We’re going to follow people who get boosted.”

    Cautioning Americans not to be alarmed by that possibility, Fauci added, “People should not be put off by the fact that as time goes by and we learn more and more about the protection, we might modify the guidelines. That’s what we’ve been saying all along by follow the science, things change and you have to follow the data.”

    In a different weekend appearance, this time on ABC’s This Week, Fauci attempted to persuade the audience that a third shot is unlikely to wane in efficacy as the initial two shots did, a fact perhaps to assuage fears that endless booster shots will become the norm in battling COVID-19.

    “We would hope, and this is something that we’re looking at very carefully, that the third shot with the mRNA not only boosts you way up, but increases the durability so that you will not necessarily need it every six months or a year,” declared Fauci, though he added, “If it doesn’t, and the data shows we need to do it more often, then we’ll do it… .”

    Notably, in early October, Israel became the first nation in the world to change its internal rules to cease providing vaccination certifications to individuals whose second vaccine dose was received over six months prior, and those already holding the so-called “Green Pass” will face the expiration of the certificates that permit participation in a range of public activities if they do not accept a timely booster, as Haaretz reported.

    Countless Americans willingly rolled up their sleeves to receive shots they were assured would bring the pandemic to a controlled end, and now that there appears to be a strong chance that they were – at the very least – misled about the durability of the jabs, outrage and mistrust among the citizenry seems all but certain to grow.
