Cases continue to increase in the US but White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator, Ashish Jha says, “We don’t have to let it dictate our lives anymore”. He adds, “If you’re vaccinated, boosted, you’re going to be highly protected. We have a lot of therapy now that’s widely available now for people who are at all higher risk, so even if you have a breakthrough infection, you can get treatments. That means that the virus should not control our lives anymore.” The report on this was written by Peter Sullivan and was published by The Hill last April 11, 2022.
Leana Wen, a well-known health commentator and a public health professor at George Washington University adds, “As long as hospitals do not become overwhelmed again, restrictions should not need to return…Restrictions should not come back just to prevent infection.” Wen also notes that the immunocompromised are still at higher risk, even with the vaccines and testing could give an extra layer of protection. She says, however, that it would be “unreasonable” to restrict activities in society now that vaccines are available.”
Anthony Fauci agrees with Wen. He says, “What’s going to happen is that we’re going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take in”.
Editor’s Note: There are two main questions we wish to discuss in relation to this article. First is this: when will the Philippines stop using “cases” in determining its COVID policies? We know that because of the much lower cases being registered in recent weeks, the Philippines has stopped daily case updates but based on the recently released Department Memorandum No. 2022-0141, which puts out guidelines for the transition to the endemic phase of COVID, the number of COVID cases remain as a major factor.The memo directs hospital directors to follow the Alert Level System which still relies on case counts, see https://doh.gov.ph/sites/default/files/health-update/dm2022-0141.pdf and … Continue reading
Instead of defining the official end of the pandemic, the Philippine government has left “health experts” to make the definition. Unfortunately, the only statistic that matters to our health authorities today is the vaccination rate. Even if our COVID cases and deaths are already very low, no one has dared to say that the Philippines is ready transition out of the pandemic [Read Will the Philippines’ State of Emergency end if the country reaches 70% vaccination rate?, Why can’t the Philippine government give up its unscientific, illogical, and useless COVID policies?].
Could it be because the government still wants to vaccinate the entire Philippines? [Read The Government Believes that 100% Vaccination is the Key to Getting the Philippines Back to Normal, This is the reason why authorities want 100% COVID vaccination, The war on the ‘unvaccinated’ is a desperate attempt to destroy the control group].
The second question is this: how big a difference did vaccines make in terms of controlling infection and deaths? For this, it is important for us to take a look at the data.
We will remember that the first COVID shots were administered in December 2020 in the UK. Meanwhile, the Philippines rolled out its first COVID shots in March 2021. Now, look at the graph below from Our World In Data. Can you see the much higher number of COVID cases and deaths in the Philippines after the vaccines were rolled out? In fact, these days, new cases continue to fall, even reaching early-pandemic levels.
But look at the COVID deaths. How is it possible that the COVID deaths are at much higher levels than COVID cases? Obviously, this is statistical magic. People who die of other causes are still being tested prior to the release of their bodies. Those who test positive in this final test are considered as a COVID death, which is erroneous because it prevents us from properly assessing the real health toll of COVID [even other countries are already acknowledging the error in this practice, see CDC removes tens of thousands of deaths “accidentally” attributed to COVID, The truth about COVID deaths is a coming out, Governments now admitting: COVID deaths skewed by people who died of other causes].
Now, even if we assume that all the COVID deaths recorded in the Philippines were really DUE TO Covid and not WITH Covid, then why are daily COVID deaths much higher now that vaccine uptake is high compared to the early days of the pandemic when the vaccine was not yet available? This certainly puts into question the Department of Health’s claim that it is the unvaccinated who are dying.
We want to point out these facts because health experts want you to think that the vaccines have done their job. What they are not saying is that since the beginning, the death rate of COVID has been very low [see Updated IFR for COVID Confirms 99.9987% Survival for Under-20’s].
The fact that the immunocompromised and the elderly are still at high risk of COVID complications means that the vaccine has done nothing to protect them [Also read Study shows COVID vaccines unable to protect vulnerable groups, Study: Risk of death following vaccination higher than COVID-19 among the most vulnerable groups].
The only reason that health experts are treating COVID differently now is not that there has been a significant improvement in our COVID statistics. It is because people are no longer tolerant of their lies and economies can no longer tolerate prolonging the COVID hysteria. The change came not from the vaccine or from the “new treatments”, but the willingness (or in this case, the unwillingness) of these health experts to keep up the pandemic theatre.
Now we must ask: what changed their minds?
