Fact Check : Sasha Latypova Vax Claims On Epoch TV

Pharma insider Sasha Latypova claimed on Epoch TV that the COVID-19 pandemic was a military operation that allowed dangerous vaccines to be given to people!

Let’s take a look at her claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

What Sasha Latypova Claimed On Epoch TV

People are sharing a Twitter video by Jan Jekielek on Epoch TV, which highlights the opinions of a “pharma insider” called Sasha Latypova. Here is a transcript of the video:

American Though Leaders : PHARMA INSIDER SPEAKS OUT

Jan Jekielek also posted this claim in his Twitter post promoting the Epoch TV video:

Databases such as VAERS, Yellow Card, & EudraVigiliance showed huge numbers of adverse events shortly after the COVID vaccine was rolled out, yet the gov’t denied it & “continues denying to this day,” argues @sasha_latypova.

My Fact Check Of Sasha Latypova Claims On Epoch TV

This is yet another example of fake news about the COVID-19 pandemic and the COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Sasha Latypova Did Not Work For Big Pharma

Since Sasha Latypova is being promoted as a pharma insider / whistleblower, I wondered which Big Pharma company she worked for. However, according to her own LinkedIn profile, she never worked in one?

1997 – 1999 : Graduated with MBA from The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth

March 2006 – October 2016 : Co-Founder and Executive VP of iCardiac Technologies, Inc.

December 2014 to present : Co-Founder, Executive VP and Director of Clerio Vision, Inc.

As far as I can tell – Sasha Latypova does not have any medical training, or experience with vaccines. It also looks like she never worked for any of the Big Pharma companies. How does that make her a “pharma insider” or a “pharma whistleblower”?

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Pandemic Was Not A Military Operation

Sasha Latypova claimed on Epoch TV that the COVID-19 pandemic was really a military operation, but offered no evidence.

The scientific community is still uncertain whether the initial COVID-19 outbreak occurred because of an accidental release in a Chinese laboratory, or happened naturally through close contact with an infected animal.

But there is ZERO evidence that it was intentionally released in Wuhan in a US military operation, as promoted by pro-CCP netizens and the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) .

Fact #3 : VAERS / Yellow Card / EudraVigilance Data Are Unverified

Sasha Latypova is repeating the old debunked claim that the VAERS / Yellow Card / EudraVigilance data show that the COVID-19 vaccines have many more adverse events than all other vaccines combined.

The truth is – VAERS / Yellow Card / EudraVigilance data are all unverified, and may contain duplicated information. That’s why they are all prefaced with warnings like:

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In addition, open systems like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, are very susceptible to abuse because they allow anyone from anywhere to post anything they want, without evidence or verification.

Anti-vaccination activists can, for example, key in unlimited numbers of adverse reaction reports, even if they never received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Fact #4 : US Government Did Not Commandeer Big Pharma

The US government did not commandeer pharmaceutical companies to produce COVID-19 vaccines. Sasha Latypova did not offer any evidence to back up that claim, or explain what she meant.

But if she was referring to Operation Warp Speed (OWS), that was a public-private partnership to accelerate the development, manufacturing and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics.

The US government did not commandeer any pharmaceutical company to produce vaccines. Its role was limited, primarily, to funding vaccine companies to a tune of some $11 billion. But it was not mandatory. Pfizer – a major COVID-19 vaccine manufacturer, declined to participate in Operation Warp Speed.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Compliant + Approved

Sasha Latypova claimed that the pharmaceutical companies were producing non-compliant injectables, probably referring to the COVID-19 vaccines.

That would not be accurate, as the COVID-19 vaccines underwent large clinical trials and were proven to be safe and effective, before receiving their Emergency Use Authorisation. Hence, all approved COVID-19 vaccines are compliant with FDA or other regulatory bodies.

Even after mass vaccinations began, the approved COVID-19 vaccines continued to be monitored for months, and eventually received their full FDA approvals.

Why Mislav Kolakušić called WHO terrorist organisation!

Mislav Kolakusic – a Member of the European Parliament, just called WHO a terrorist organisation!

Find out why Kolakusic called WHO a terrorist organisation, and what the facts really are!

 

Mislav Kolakusic : WHO Is A Terrorist Organisation!

People are sharing video clips on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok which shows Mislav Kolakusic – a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) calling the WHO (World Health Organisation) a terrorist organisation.

The Gateway Pundit also posted an article on Mislav Kolakusic declaring the WHO as a terrorist organisation, which are being shared by anti-vaccination activists and conspiracy theorists.

The MEP said that while voicing his opposition to an upcoming agreement which would allegedly give WHO the “sole authority to declare pandemics and acquire vaccines and drugs”. Here is a transcript of his video.

I would like to briefly make the people aware of the upcoming danger for humanity.

The World Health Organization wants all countries to sign an agreement on handing over the authority to declare a pandemic, procure vaccines, and drugs.

Recommended : Why International COVID Summit III Criticised Vaccine!

 

Truth : Mislav Kolakusic Is Wrong, WHO Is Not Terrorist Organisation

This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION created and spread by politicians and/or conspiracy theorists / anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was Not A Deep Fake Video

First, let me just point out that this is not a deep fake video. Mislav Kolakusic (Mislav Kolakušić) did indeed call for the WHO to be declared a terrorist organisation.

That video came from his official press conference which he posted on his Twitter account on May 22, 2023. It has been viewed by over 1.1 million people to date.

Fact #2 : Mislav Kolakusic Is A Controversial Politician

Mislav Kolakusic was elected as a Croatian independent Member of the European Parliament (MEP) in May 2019. Since then, he has been a controversial politician.

In January 2022, he compared COVID-19 vaccine mandates with capital punishment, claiming that tens of thousands of people died from vaccines citing data from the European Medicines Agency (EMA). In response, the EMA said that the cited EudraVigilance data was a public, self-reporting system (like VAERS) which require investigation to prove a causal link. Even more damning, the EudraVigilance data did not report deaths, contradicting Kolakusic’s claims.

In March 2022, Kolakusic criticised Canada’s response to vaccine mandate protests, saying that Canada now resembled more like a “dictatorship of the worst kind”.

In October 2022, Kolakusic claimed that there was a lack of disclosure of vaccine ingredients, saying, “no one in the world, except maybe 2 or 3 people, knows what it contains”, and called it “the biggest corruption scandal in the history of mankind”. However, we do know what COVID-19 vaccines contain, and there has not been any evidence of any corruption scandal surrounding any COVID-19 vaccine so far.

Fact #3 : No Evidence WHO Lied About COVID-19 / Vaccines

There is no evidence that the WHO lied about the COVID-19 pandemic or the COVID-19 vaccines. The truth is:

  • SARS-CoV-2 was a new coronavirus when it was discovered in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, and
  • the COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing deaths and hospitalisation.

In fact, the world has reopened up after many people were vaccinated against COVID-19, preventing massive waves of hospitalisations and deaths.

Mislav Kolakusic notably did not offer any evidence that the WHO lied, when he called for it to be labelled as a terrorist organisation.

Recommended : Did US Intentionally Release COVID Virus In Wuhan?!

Fact #4 : WHO Agreement Was Initiated By World Leaders

Mislav Kolakusic’s claims are based on a WHO agreement which started with not with WHO itself, but its member states, which wanted to amend the existing International Health Regulations to strengthen the world’s preparedness against future global pandemics.

The International Health Regulations (IHR) were first adopted by member states in 1969, empowering the WHO to monitor global diseases. Those regulations have since been revised over the years, including in 2005 – after the SARS outbreak.

On 1 December 2021, world leaders agreed to kickstart the process to draft and negotiate an agreement or convention to “strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response“.

Fact #5 : Recommendations Came From WHO Member States

The proposed recommendations came from WHO member states, and not WHO itself. Among the more than 200 recommendations on how to better prepare for the next pandemic were:

  • sharing of data and genomic sequences on emerging viruses
  • a plan for equitable vaccine distribution
  • a ban on wildlife markets
  • incentives for reporting new viruses or variants

Fact #6 : Some Countries Don’t Want A Binding Agreement

The European Union has proposed that the changes be adopted as a new treaty, which would be binding. This is perhaps what Mislav Kolakusic was so agitated about, but this was an EU proposal, not a WHO proposal.

The United States, on the other hand, has opposed a binding treaty. India and Brazil are similarly reluctant about adopting a treaty.

The EU proposed the treaty and is its biggest backer, with support from Britain, Indonesia, Kenya and others.

The United States will take part in the talks but has opposed a binding treaty. India and Brazil have also voiced reservations.

With so many member countries involved, securing agreement is likely to be tricky.

Recommended : Is Biden Admin signing over US sovereignty to WHO?!

Fact #7 : No Country Is Signing Over Its Sovereignty To WHO

The zero draft (PDF download) of the proposed WHO agreement on preparing for future pandemics even addresses the issue of national sovereignty on Article 4 (3):

3. Sovereignty – States have, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law, the sovereign right to determine and manage their approach to public health, notably pandemic prevention, preparedness, response and recovery of health systems, pursuant to their own policies and legislation, provided that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not cause damage to their peoples and other countries. Sovereignty also covers the rights of States over their biological resources.

Anyone who read the zero draft can clearly see that even the “draft” has clarified that no country is signing over its national sovereignty to the WHO.

Fact #8 : WHO DG Dismissed Sovereignty Claim In May 2022

On May 17, 2022, WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus dismissed the claim that countries signing up for this new agreement would be giving up their sovereignty.

The accord process is led by Member States with their own Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (called INB), representing all regions of the world. The INB has now started a two-year process that includes global public hearings with all stakeholders. This represents the world’s opportunity to plan together, detect pathogens quicker, share data broadly and collectively respond more effectively to the next diseases X or known pathogens.

Unfortunately, there has been a small minority of groups making misleading statements and purposefully distorting facts.

I want to be crystal clear. WHO’s agenda is public, open and transparent. WHO stands strongly for individual rights. We passionately support everyone’s right to health and we will do everything we can to ensure that that right is realized.

The first ever World Health Assembly, which took place soon after the WHO Constitution entered into force in 1948, was a watershed event in global public health. And like the proposed pandemic preparedness accord, this did not mean WHO usurped nations’ sovereignty; in fact it strengthened countries’ ability to fight diseases together.

WHO is an expression of Member States’ own sovereignty and WHO is entirely what the sovereign 194 Member States want WHO to be.

Every year, these sovereign governments come together at the World Health Assembly to set the health agenda for the world. Individually we can’t beat pandemics; our best chance is together.

Were COVID-19 Vaccines Recalled After 40K Deaths?!

Have COVID-19 vaccines been recalled after over 40,000 deaths were reported in major safety databases?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Recalled After 40K Deaths!

People are sharing a video of Dr. Peter McCullough testifying to a Senate Committee on Health & Human Services, as evidence that COVID-19 vaccines have been recalled after 40,000 deaths!

It is often shared with comments like this :

50 deaths is the threshold for a vaccine recall.

40,000 #COVID19 #VaccineDeaths and no recall.

Ask yourself, why is this the first in history?

The video shows Dr. Peter McCullough making a number of claims. Here is my transcript.

It’s long so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

This month, the World Council for Health, which represents 70 bodies worldwide, has called for a global recall of all vaccines, because worldwide 40,000 deaths that these safety databases across the world… 40,000 in the big ones – VAERS, the Yellow Card System, the VigiSafe [sic] and Eudrys [sic] system. 40,000 deaths with the vaccines.

 

Truth : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Safe + Were Not Recalled!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, including Dr. Peter McCullough himself, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was A Texas Senate Hearing

First, let us understand the context behind the viral video.

It was a partial clip from a 10.5 hour long interim hearing on public health data and the COVID-19 pandemic response held by the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee on June 27, 2022.

The Texas Senate hearing was just political theatre, in which the Republicans brought in fringe doctors or scientists like Peter McCullough and Robert Malone to, well, tell their lies.

I will now go through the McCullough clip (which starts at about 8:05:00), and show you why he has not changed his lying ways…

Fact #2 : No COVID-19 Vaccines Were Recalled

Just to be clear – no COVID-19 vaccines were recalled, either by health authorities or the manufacturers themselves.

That is merely a fantasy conjured up by anti-vaccination activists, just like how they fantasised in August 2021 that Germany put all COVID-19 vaccines on hold!

Fact #3 : WCH Called For Vaccine Recall Since Sept. 2021

Despite its name – the World Council for Health (WCH) is really just another anti-vaccination organisation, filled with the usual suspects.

Just to be clear – it has no authority whatsoever. The WCH is nothing more than an antivaxxer club.

The WCH was launched on September 23, 2021 with the expressed purpose of calling for “an Immediate Stop to the Covid-19 Experimental Vaccines“.

They also issued a Cease and Desist declaration, claiming that “Covid-19 vaccinations are dangerous and unsafe for human use“.

So Peter McCullough falsely claimed that WCH called for a vaccine recall “this month”. It has been calling for a vaccine recall from the very first day it was established. That is really its sole purpose – to stop COVID-19 vaccinations.

Fact #4 : VigiSafe + Eudrys Do Not Exist

Peter McCullough referred to the VigiSafe and Eudrys vaccine safety databases, but they do not exist.

Perhaps he meant the WHO VigiBase / VigiAccess database, and the EudraVigilance system run by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Read more : Did Italian Court Rule Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional?!

Fact #5 : Pharmacovigilance Data Is Unverified

It is hilarious that Peter McCullough still insists on using pharmacovigilance data from VAERS, the Yellow Card system, etc. as evidence.

Anyone who even bothers to read the highlighted WARNINGS on those websites would have understood that their data and reports cannot be considered evidence of any kind, because:

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In addition, open systems like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, are very susceptible to abuse because they allow anyone from anywhere to post anything they want, without evidence or verification.

Anti-vaccination activists can, for example, key in unlimited numbers of adverse reaction reports, even if they never received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Read more : Here’s How Antivaxxers Create Fake News Using VAERS!

Fact #6 : 40,000 Deaths Not Proven To Be Caused By Vaccines

Using pharmacovigilance data to claim that the COVID-19 vaccines caused 40,000 deaths is disinformation – false information deliberately created to deceive you.

Peter McCullough has no evidence that the 40,000 deaths reported in pharmacovigilance data were actually caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

Making an adverse reaction report is no different from making a police report. If you make a police report, it is registered in the system. However, that doesn’t mean a crime was actually committed. The police will have to investigate and determine if you were lying / mistaken, or there was indeed a crime.

Similarly, these adverse reaction reports are just reports. They must first be investigated, in order to determine if they are really side effects of the vaccine, or completely unrelated.

Fact #7 : There Is No 50 Death Threshold For Vaccine Withdrawal

There is no such thing as a 50 death threshold for a vaccine withdrawal.

Vaccines are often recalled for non-lethal reasons. In fact, they are most often recalled in batches by their manufacturers after quality control tests showed some irregularities in certain batches.

Health authorities like the US FDA also monitor vaccines continuously and determine if there is a safety concern that warrants a withdrawal. They do not have to wait for 50 people to die first. That’s just absurd!

Sometimes vaccines are also recalled due to “low vaccine potency or strength”. In such cases, people who received them would need to get an extra dose!

Red more : Do mRNA Vaccines Cause Invasion Of Killer Lymphocytes?!

Fact #8 : There Were Only 43 Omicron Cases On Dec. 10, 2021

It is interesting that Peter McCullough would talk about Omicron cases six months in the past.

But if you dig a little deeper, you will realise that he chose to talk about Omicron cases on December 10, 2021 because it was the first CDC report on Omicron cases in the United States.

At that time, there were only 43 known Omicron cases in the United States. Even though it showed that 79% were fully-vaccinated, that is misleading due to the low number of cases.

Fact #9 : Vaccinated People Have Mild Symptoms, Fewer Deaths

What he does not tell you is that most fully-vaccinated people experience mild symptoms even if they were infected with the Omicron variant.

He also does not tell you that COVID-19 deaths for fully-vaccinated people remain low, even as surges increased deaths for unvaccinated people, regardless of variant.

Read more : Did Study Show Pfizer Vaccine Altering Liver DNA In 6 Hours?!

Fact #10 : Vaccines Were Meant To Prevent Hospitalisation + Death

Peter McCullough falsely claimed that the 79% result was “prima facie evidence” that the COVID-19 vaccines failed to work against the Omicron variant.

The COVID-19 vaccines are not force fields – they cannot block infections. They were designed to prevent symptomatic infections, severe disease and death by training your own immune system to defend itself against the ancestral SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Omicron variant causes more breakthrough infections, but the COVID-19 vaccines continue to protect against severe disease leading to hospitalisations, and death from the Omicron variant.

The truth is – the COVID-19 vaccines still work well against the Omicron variants. They may not prevent infections, but they will ensure you have milder symptoms, and greatly reduce your risk of severe disease and death.

Fact #11 : Booster Doses Increase Protection Against Omicron

What Peter McCullough does not mention is the fact that you can improve your protection against the Omicron variant by getting a booster dose (or two).

A January 2022 study by the CDC showed that getting a third dose of any mRNA vaccine increases protection against both the Delta and Omicron variants.

Read more : Did Hackers Release Pfizer + Moderna Vaccine Death Data?!

Fact #12 : Anti-Vaccine Claims All Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists twisting the facts to deceive you into believing that vaccines are dangerous.

So far, their COVID-19 vaccine claims have proven to be false… at every instance!

Did Italian Court Rule Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional?!

Did an Italian court rule that vaccine mandates are unconstitutional because fatal side effects are too risky?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Italian Court Ruled Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional!

People are sharing articles from websites like News Punch, claiming that an Italian court just ruled vaccine mandates as unconstitutional, because their fatal side effects are too risky!

The article includes a transcript from a RAIR Foundation USA video. It is rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

Italian Court Rules Vaccine Mandates Unconstitutional: ‘Fatal Side Effects Too Risky’

An Italian court has ruled that Italy’s mandatory Covid vaccination program is ‘unconstitutional’ due to the “serious or fatal adverse effects” posed by the experimental jabs.

Sicily’s Court of Administrative Justice stated that any death due to the jab is enough to render the mandate completely illegal in Italy.

 

Truth : Italian Court Did NOT Rule Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS that anti-vaccination activists are concocting to mislead people about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Italy Only Has A Limited Vaccine Mandate

First, I need to point out that Italy only has a limited vaccine mandate.

Since 15 October 2021, it has been mandatory for workers in both private and public sectors, who are 50 years and older, to present a valid COVID pass.

This does not affect younger employees, and is not exactly a vaccine mandate, because the COVID pass only requires :

  • at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, OR
  • proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken in the previous 48 hours, OR
  • proof of having recently recovered from COVID-19.

Technically, you can refuse to get the vaccine and receive the COVID pass, as long as you keep testing negative for COVID-19.

Fact #2 : Italian Court Did Not Rule Vaccine Mandate Unconstitutional

If you translate the court judgement to English, you will quickly realise that the Italian court did not rule the vaccine mandate as unconstitutional.

In fact, the court document clearly states that the judge suspended the trial, and sent the documents to the Italian Constitutional Court for their decision instead.

Fact #3 : Italian Court Did Not Call Vaccine Side Effects Too Risky

The Italian court certainly did not claim that the “fatal side effects” of the vaccine are “too risky”.

In fact, the court document pointed out that “undoubtedly, most of the side effects, listed in the database, show modest and transient symptoms”.

Fact #4 : Court Photo Was From 2013

The picture that is often used to convey the “importance” of this court finding was misappropriate, and does not show the Administrative Justice Court for Sicily.

That is a local court for Sicily, which has a single judge. The presiding judge for this case was Maria Abbruzzese.

The photo was actually taken in Rome, on 1 August 2013, and shows Chief Justice Antonio Esposito of the Italian Supreme Court reading the verdict of the Mediaset trial involving former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

Fact #5 : Correlation Is Not Causation

I also have to point out that correlation does not imply causation. In other words, just because something after vaccination, it does not mean it was caused by the vaccine.

For example, if you get pregnant after getting the COVID-19 vaccine, does it mean that the vaccine made you pregnant? Of course, not.

There is also the fact that many events can result in the same “side effect”.

For example, the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are known to cause anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) in rare cases. However, anaphylactic reactions can also occur due to a peanut allergy or a bee sting.

That is why every reported case must be examined to determine if it is actually related to the vaccine.

Fact #6 : EudraVigilance Data Have Yet To Be Verified 

The EudraVigilance system is not an open system like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, which makes it less susceptible to abuse.

However, EudraVigilance data and reports cannot be considered “evidence” of side effects of any particular drug or vaccine, because :

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by the EMA to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In fact, the EudraVigilance website specifically warns against using their data as “evidence” of a drug / vaccine’s side effects :

The information on this website relates to suspected side effects , i.e. medical events that have been observed following the use of a medicine, but which are not necessarily related to or caused by the medicine.

Information on suspected side effects should not be interpreted as meaning that the medicine or the active substance causes the observed effect or is unsafe to use. Only a detailed evaluation and scientific assessment of all available data allows for robust conclusions to be drawn on the benefits and risks of a medicine.

They even created a dedicated page on COVID-19 vaccines to warn against using their data to draw any conclusions about a vaccine’s side effects.

Fact #7 : Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

Irrespective of what’s argued in any court, the approved COVID-19 vaccines have all been proven safe and effective.

Not only did they undergo and passed very large clinical trials, almost 12 billion doses have been administered worldwide in the past 1.5 years.

Despite scaremongering by anti-vaccination activists, ongoing pharmacovigilance monitoring show that they are safe and effective for the vast majority of people who received them.

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Infections Are Far Riskier Than Vaccines

In addition to the aforementioned anaphylaxis risk, pharmacovigilance surveillance picked up rare severe side effects like VITT, myocarditis and pericarditis.

But what anti-vaccination activists don’t tell you is that COVID-19 infections cause similar side effects, but at much higher rates.

Take myocarditis for example. Anti-vaccination activists love to tell us how they put our children’s lives at risk. But they conveniently leave out the fact that your child is hundreds of times more likely to develop myocarditis from a COVID-19 infection than from three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine!
