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.

Did CDC Say COVID Vaccines Cause AIDS + Cancer?!

Did the CDC say that COVID-19 vaccines increased AIDS related diseases and cancer by 338X in 2021?!

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

 

Claim : CDC Says COVID-19 Vaccines Increased AIDS + Cancer!

People are sharing an article by The Expose (formerly Daily Expose), which claims that the CDC just said that the COVID-19 vaccines increased AIDS-associated diseases and cancers by 338X in 2021!

Here is an excerpt from the really long article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

COVID Vaccine roll-out caused 338x increase in AIDS-associated Diseases & Cancers in 2021 says CDC

Read more : Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

 

Truth : CDC Did Not Say COVID-19 Vaccines Increase AIDS + Cancer

This is just another example of FAKE NEWS from the notorious fake news website, The Expose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Expose Is A Notorious Fake News Website

Like Real Raw News and NewsPunch, Daily Expose is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money. It was later rebranded as The Expose.

Founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker – a mechanic from Lincolnshire, The Expose / Daily Expose is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from Daily Expose / The Expose. Here are some of its fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Everything posted by The Expose / Daily Expose must be considered fake news, until proven otherwise.

Fact #2 : Adverse Events Are Not Side Effects

Anti-vaccination activists and websites often mention “adverse events” instead of “side effects”, and that’s intentional.

Adverse events are simply “unfavourable” or “unintended” events that happen after vaccination, even if they are unrelated to the vaccine itself. Adverse events can include vaccine-related events like an anaphylactic reaction, or something completely unrelated like getting into a car accident right after vaccination.

Just because they were reported to monitoring systems like VAERS in the US, or Yellow Card in the UK, it does not mean that they are vaccine side effects. Reported adverse events have to be investigated to find out if they are related (anaphylactic reaction) or not (getting into a car accident) to the vaccine or drug that was taken.

Even if an adverse event was “possibly caused” by the vaccine, it must still be confirmed that the vaccine directly caused it, because an anaphylactic reaction (for example) can also occur from a bee sting, or an existing peanut allergy.

Only once an adverse event is confirmed to be caused by the vaccine, is it then a vaccine side effect. Otherwise, it is merely an adverse event, not a side effect.

That is why it is not only wrong, but grossly irresponsible, to use adverse events to scare people into thinking that they are vaccine side effects.

Read more : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #3 : Adverse Event Monitoring Systems Are Open To Abuse

Adverse event monitoring systems like VAERS and Yellow Card were intentionally designed to be open to anyone to report anything. This lets scientists catch as many adverse events as possible, to hopefully pick out very rare side effects that even large trials may not catch.

Unfortunately, this open design also makes them notoriously susceptible to abuse, and false reporting. Not just doctors and their patients, but literally any Tom, Dick, or Harry with nothing better to do, can create and file nonsensical adverse event reports.

This is why VAERS, for example, is a favourite tool for anti-vaccination activists. Not only can they create fake reports to inflate the numbers of adverse events, and/or to generate fake news, they often use its unverified adverse events statistics to drive the perception that COVID-19 vaccines cause a lot of death and injuries.

The CDC is well-aware of this problem, which is why they explicitly pointed out to everyone that :

  • Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.
  • The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines.

For certain, CDC did not say that the VAERS reports show that COVID-19 vaccines increased AIDS and cancer by 338X in 2021!

So next time you see any report that mentions VAERS, take it with a big pinch of salt. Better still, ignore it completely.

Fact #4 : AIDS Is Caused By HIV Infection

The Expose / Daily Expose falsely claims that AIDS have multiple causes, including “drugs or medications”. That’s nonsense. Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is only caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

HIV infections go through different stages – from an acute infection, to clinical latency, before it progresses to the AIDS stage, which is defined as a HIV infection with either :

  • a CD4+ T cell count below 200 cells per µL, or
  • the occurrence of specific diseases associated with HIV infection

The Expose / Daily Expose (intentionally?) confused AIDS with Secondary Immunodeficiency Disorders (SID).

Since AIDS can only be caused by a HIV infection, the entire premise of its article falls into pieces. It’s complete and utter nonsense – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause AIDS!

Read more : Did US Refuse WHO Investigation Of Fort Detrick For COVID-19 Source?!

Fact #5 : HIV Is Different From SARS-CoV-2

Just to be clear, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a completely different virus from SARS-CoV-2 – the COVID-19 virus.

HIV viruses are single-stranded retroviruses from the Lentivirus genus, and are transmitted through sexual contact, or transfer of blood and bodily fluids.

SARS-CoV-2 is a single-stranded coronavirus from the Betacoronavirus genus, and is airborne, mainly transmitted through respiratory droplets and aerosols.

There is no conceivable way for COVID-19 vaccines, or even COVID-19 infections, to cause AIDS…. or to “create a new form of AIDS”. That’s nonsense.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Damage Immune System

COVID-19 vaccines do not damage your immune system, because they are really just training camps for your immune system.

All they do is teach your immune system how to identify the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Your own immune system will then develop its own antibodies to protect against the real coronavirus when you get infected.

Like special forces training for soldiers in an army, vaccines boost your immune system’s ability to fight back against a new enemy.

COVID-19 vaccines certainly cannot cause AIDS by damaging your immune system Again, AIDS can only be caused by a HIV infection!

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).

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!

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.

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.

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!
