Leaked AstraZeneca audio show pandemic was preplanned?!

Did leaked AstraZeneca audio show that the COVID-19 pandemic was preplanned years in advance?! Let’s take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Leaked AstraZeneca Audio Show Pandemic Was Preplanned!

People are sharing a video which shows Sasha Latypova and Clayton Morris discussing how leaked audio of an AstraZeneca meeting show that the COVID-19 pandemic was preplanned years in advance!

Chief Nerd : 👀 Sasha Latypova Has New Evidence Showing the COVID Countermeasures Were ‘Preset Years Before’ the Pandemic Occurred

“The audio is from an internal meeting in AstraZeneca…VP Mark Esser says we started working with the Dept. of Defense Pandemic Preparedness Program in 2017. He also mentions that they were approached by Dept. of Defense…with a proposal that they would be working on something like this with the DoD to develop vaccines and therapeutics within 60 days of the DoD identifying a pathogenic virus that can cause global pandemics.”

Redacted : BREAKING! They PLANNED the whole thing years in advance. | Redacted w Natali and Clayton Morris

Here is an abridged transcript of the video between Clayton Morris (CM) and Sasha Latypova (SL):

CM : What really happened here?

SL : Well, the truth turns out this [COVID-19 pandemic] was all preset way… years before. From this leaked audio, but it’s not the only source, this is just the confirmatory evidence that I obtained.

Claim : Leaked AstraZeneca Audio Show Pandemic Was Preplanned!

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

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

In the video, Clayton Morris referred to Sasha Latypova’s years of work in the pharmaceutical industry:

Before we get to the tape, you’ve worked, obviously, in the pharmaceutical industry with a lot of clients for many, many years, so you know this intimately.

However, there is no indication that Sasha Latypova ever worked in the pharmaceutical industry, never mind Big Pharma. According to her own LinkedIn profile, she only appears to have worked in the medical device industry, and then only in the management capacity:

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 viruses or vaccines. It also looks like she never worked for any of the Big Pharma companies. How does that translate into working in the pharmaceutical industry for “many, many years”???

Fact #2 : 2017 Pandemic Prevention Program Did Not Target COVID-19

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense initiated its Pandemic Prevention Platform (P3) in 2017 (archive), aiming to develop “an integrated technology platform” to “halt the spread of any viral disease outbreak within 60 days“.

Its initial program outline specifically pointed out that the goal of the P3 platform was to cut the time to develop countermeasures to a viral outbreak from years to just “weeks”, using DNA- and RNA-based technologies.

Nowhere in its program description did it once refer to COVID-19, or the SARS-CoV-2. That’s because the novel coronavirus would not appear until the end of 2019, and the world informed on 31 December 2019.

In other words – the DARPA P3 program is not evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic was preplanned years in advance. It is called “being prepared for a future disaster”. Just because you build a bomb shelter does not mean you are planning to launch a war!

Fact #3 : AstraZeneca Audio Does Not Show Pandemic Was Preplanned

Sasha Latypova actually shared the leaked AstraZeneca audio on 7 February 2024, but it didn’t go viral… because it was a “nothingburger”.

Anyone who listens to the leaked audio, or reads the transcript below will quickly realise that it does not show that the COVID-19 pandemic was pre-planned years in advance by the US Department of Defense, or Big Pharma companies like AstraZeneca.

https://www.techarp.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/Sasha-Latypova-Clayton-Morris-evidence-DOD-AstraZeneca-vaccine.mp3?_=1

Here is a transcript of the audio, which is very long:

Mark (the introducer) : … [Mark] Esser who has been the architect of the long-acting antibody against Covid-19. Mark, back to you.

In short, the leaked AstraZeneca audio does not show any pre-planning of the COVID-19 pandemic. It only gives us an inside look at how pharmaceutical teams can now quickly develop products like neutralising antibodies, and vaccines, against a novel (new) virus.

Fact #4 : AstraZeneca Audio Showed How It Developed Evusheld

The truth is – the leaked audio actually detailed how AstraZeneca quickly developed Evusheld (AZD7442) – its combination of tixagevimab and cilgavimab – two long-acting antibodies (LAAB) against COVID-19.

Even so, it did not take AstraZeneca 60 days to develop and ship Evusheld, as envisioned by the P3 project.  In the end, it took AstraZeneca almost two years to get Evusheld approved by the FDA. Its development started in February 2020, and Evusheld only received its FDA EUA on 8 December 2021.

To be clear – that’s still very fast, and demonstrates the effectiveness of DARPA’s Pandemic Prevention Platform (P3). Again, it does not show that DARPA or AstraZeneca planned the COVID-19 pandemic back in 2017.

Did Bill Gates Just Admit To Committing Planetary Genocide?!

Did Bill Gates just admit to committing planetary genocide in an interview with USA Today?!

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

 

Claim : Bill Gates Just Admits To Committing Planetary Genocide!

People are sharing a video clip on X (formerly Twitter), while claiming or suggesting that Bill Gates just admitted to committing planetary genocide in an interview with USA Today!

Liz Churchill : “We just need to mess around with all of the Nano-lipid Particles to make more vaccines”. -Bill Gates admitting to committing Planetary Genocide.

Arrest this Monster.

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Planning To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS?!

 

Truth : Bill Gates Did Not Admit To Committing Planetary Genocide!

This is yet another example of fake news created / shared by anti-vaccine activists, or conspiracy theorists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : USA Today Video Is Over Two Years Old!

Let me start by pointing out that the USA Today interview that people are sharing isn’t new. Heck, it’s more than two years old!

USA Today published that interview on 27 January 2021, with the title – Bill Gates predicts mRNA will be a game changer for vaccines over next 5 years.

Fact #2 : Bill Gates Did Not Admit To Committing Genocide

Bill Gates is, no doubt, a very popular bogeyman for conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccine activists. But this claim is just silly, and makes them look like absolute idiots.

The USA Today video does not show Bill Gates admitting to committing genocide of any kind, neither the planetary variety or just the local stuff. Anyone can see that.

Those making these claims that “Bill Gates admitting to committing Planetary Genocide” offered no evidence to back them up. The video is actually proof that Bill Gates did no such thing.

In the interview, Bill Gates was predicting the mRNA vaccine platform’s potential to treat or eradicate many other diseases. At no point in time did he ever admit to committing genocide… of any kind.

Fact #3 : mRNA Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

Tens of billions of doses of mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 have been administered worldwide over the last 3 years, and have been proven in multiple studies to be safe and effective. Here are just some examples:

In fact, the very fact that the world has been able to reopen completely after the COVID-19 pandemic is a testament to the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines, which include mRNA vaccines from Pfizer, BioNTech and Moderna.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Fake News About Bill Gates

This is ultimately just more fake news being created / spread about Bill Gates. Here are some other recent examples:

Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Did Pfizer just admit that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are the deadliest drug in history?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Pfizer Calls mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Pfizer just admitted that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are the deadliest drug in history!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is long and (intentionally?) rambling. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Covid Vaccines Are Officially Deadliest Drug In History and Nobody Is Allowed to Talk About It

Recommended : Did WEF Just Admit Disease X Will Be Leaked In 2025?!

 

Truth : Pfizer Did Not Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pfizer Did Not Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History

This is really silly, but let me start by pointing out that Pfizer never said / admitted / called the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines the deadliest drug in history.

The People’s Voice article certainly offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim. Did it include a link to a Pfizer statement? A quote by Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla whose visage featured prominently in their video cover?

Nope. Zilch. Nada. Not a single shred of evidence that Pfizer ever called the mRNA vaccines the “deadliest drug in history”.

Fact #2 : FDA Released Pfizer Documents

The People’s Voice article claimed that Pfizer released documents “admitting the unprecedented carnage caused by their product”. That’s not true – Pfizer did not release any documents.

It was the US FDA that was releasing those Pfizer documents under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) group.

Fact #3 : FDA Released Pfizer 5.3.6 Document In 2021

The People’s Voice article claimed that the Pfizer 5.3.6 document was “dropped on April Fools Day 2022”, but that’s not exactly true either.

The Pfizer 5.3.6 Postmarketing Experience document was first released by the FDA to the PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) group, with three small pieces of information redacted on 17 November 2021.

The FDA later decided that the redacted information were not confidential after all, and reissued the same document in full on 1 April 2022. You can read more about this here.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Vaccine Documents Reveal 1,291 Side Effects?!

Fact #4 : Pfizer 5.3.6 Deaths + Injuries Were Not Vaccine-Linked

The People’s Voice video pointed out that the Pfizer 5.3.6 document appears to list 42,086 injuries, and 1,223 deaths. That’s not accurate.

The deaths and injuries listed in the Pfizer 5.3.6 document were not linked to the mRNA vaccine, because it was based on the “List of Adverse Events of Special Interest” (AESI).

This AESI list is not a list of side effects caused by the Pfizer mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Rather, it is a list of adverse events that Pfizer must look for post-vaccination case reports. As the Pfizer document noted on Page 16 (with my emphasis in bold) :

The AESI terms are incorporated into a TME list and include events of interest due to their association with severe COVID-19 and events of interest for vaccines in general.

Pfizer also pointed out that this adverse event evaluation is different (distinct) from the safety evaluation of its COVID-19 vaccine.

This is distinct from safety signal evaluations which are conducted and included, as appropriate, in the Summary Monthly Safety Reports submitted regularly to the FDA and other Health Authorities.

Claiming that these are vaccine side effects is like pointing to a list of prosecutable crimes in a legislation, and calling it a list of crimes the government actually committed. That’s how stupid it really is.

Fact #5 : Adverse Events Are Not Side Effects

I should now point out that adverse events are not necessarily side effects. Adverse events are “unfavourable” or “unintended” events that happen after vaccination or taking a drug, like having an anaphylactic reaction or getting into a car accident.

All 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.

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Did FDA change law to allow medical research without consent?!

Did the US FDA just quietly amend the 21st Century Cures Act to allow medical research without consent?!

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

 

Claim : FDA Changed Law To Allow Medical Research Without Consent!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the US FDA just quietly amended the 21st Century Cures Act to allow medical research without consent!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is (intentionally?) long and confusing. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

FDA Just Quietly, Deceitfully Changed Law To Allow ‘Medical Research Without Consent’

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

 

Truth : FDA Did Not Change Law To Allow Medical Research Without Consent!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : FDA Did Not Change Any Law

The People’s Voice article claimed that the US FDA just amended the 21st Century Cures Act to allow “medical research without consent” in certain situations. That’s simply not true, and is easily proven false.

All you have to do is read the FDA’s final ruling on the “Institutional Review Board Waiver or Alteration of Informed Consent for Minimal Risk Clinical Investigations“.

As the summary at the top explained, the FDA was amending its own regulations (not any law), to implement a provision of the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA, the Agency, or we) is issuing a final rule to amend its regulations to implement a provision of the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act).

The People’s Voice article provided the same link, so it is certainly aware of what it actually said.

Fact #2 : Congress Enacts Laws, Not Agencies

For the benefit of people who are not aware of how laws are enacted or amended in the United States, I should point out that Congress is the legislative branch of the US government.

Established by Article 1 of the US Constitution, the Legislative Branch consists of the House of Representatives, and the Senate. Together, they are known as the United States Congress.

Only the US Congress that has the power to enact and/or amend laws in the United States of America. Not the executive branch, or the judicial branch. Certainly not government agencies like the FDA, which fall under the executive branch.

Recommended : Did WHO Unveil Global Police Force With Arrest Powers?!

Fact #3 : Cures Act Permitted FDA Amendment In 2016

The 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act) was signed into law by then President Barack Obama on 16 December 2016.

Amongst its provisions were Section 3024, which specifically amended sections 505(i)(4) and 520(g)(3) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 355(i)(4) and 360j(g)(3)) to “provide FDA with the authority to permit an exception from informed consent requirements when the proposed clinical testing poses no more than minimal risk to the human subject and includes appropriate safeguards to protect the rights, safety, and welfare of the human subject”.

In addition, Section 3023 of the Cures Act directs the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to “harmonize differences between the HHS Human Subject Regulations and the FDA Human Subject Regulations,” to the extent practicable and consistent with other statutory provisions.

In short – the US FDA was only issuing its final ruling based on the Cures Act, which was enacted by Congress and signed into law by the President.

Fact #4 : Medical Research Without Consent Was Permitted Since 1991

What The People’s Voice article does not point out is that minimal risk medical research without informed consent has been permitted since 18 June 1991, when the Common Rule was issued (Federal Register archive PDF).

At that time, the Common Rule had four criteria for the waiver or alteration of informed consent for minimal risk research. It was revised on 19 January 2017, to add a fifth criteria – “[i]f the research involves using identifiable private information or identifiable biospecimens, the research could not practicably be carried out without using such information or biospecimens in an identifiable format”.

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Fact #5 : FDA Amendment Was Open For Public Comment

The People’s Voice article suggested that the FDA “quietly” made those amendments out of sight and public discourse. That’s simply not true.

The FDA issued the proposed rule changes in the Federal Register of 15 November 2018, and asked the public to submit any electronic or written comments to the proposed rule changes by 15 January 2019.

In the end, the FDA received fewer than 50 comment letters from the academia, Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), public advocacy groups, industry, trade organizations, public health organizations, individuals, and other organizations.

Fact #6 : Amendment Does Not Affect Informed Consent For Vaccinations

The People’s Voice article suggested that the removal of consent for minimal risk medical research may eventually spill over to allowing people to be injected without informed consent. That’s simply not true.

Not only was the FDA ruling an amendment of existing rules which have permitted minimal risk without informed consent since 1991, it has nothing to do with informed consent for medical treatments and/or vaccinations.

The FDA final ruling cannot be used to void the need for informed consent for any medical treatment and/or injections of drugs and vaccines. The People’s Voice article certainly offered no evidence to back up its claims or suggestions.

Did Autopsies Show COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Deaths?!

Did autopsies just show COVID-19 vaccines likely causing deaths in 100% of vaccine myocarditis cases?!

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

 

Claim : Autopsies Show COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Deaths!

People are sharing an article by The Epoch Times which claims or suggests that autopsies just showed COVID-19 vaccines likely causing deaths in 100% of vaccine myocarditis cases!

Here are excerpts from the long, rambling article. Please skip to the next section for the facts!

Autopsies Show COVID-19 Vaccines Likely Caused Deaths: Study

Twenty-eight deaths with cardiovascular involvement outlined in medical literature were likely caused by COVID-19 vaccination, according to a new study.

Recommended : Do mRNA vaccines have 1 in 800 severe adverse event rate?!

 

Truth : Autopsies Did Not Show COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Deaths!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : An Earlier Version Was Removed By The Lancet

Let me start by pointing out that this study appears to be an “updated” version of an earlier study which was uploaded to Preprints with The Lancet in July 2023.

That earlier study was never published by The Lancet, but was removed because its conclusion was not supported by the methodology, and violated its screening criteria.

This preprint has been removed by Preprints with The Lancet because the study’s conclusions are not supported by the study methodology. Preprints with The Lancet reserves the right to remove a paper that has been posted if we determine that it has violated our screening criteria.

Fact #2 : Researchers Did Not Conduct Those Autopsies

To be clear – both studies were basically document reviews. None of the researchers in both studies actually conducted any of the autopsies. This was what the researchers did in the “improved” Hulscher et. al. study (archive):

  • search for autopsy reports involving COVID-19 vaccination-induced myocarditis
  • filter the 1,691 studies they found to just 14 papers covering 28 autopsies
  • three of the authors (Peter McCullough, Roger Hodkinson, and William Makis) then “independently” reviewed the autopsy reports and determined the “causality” of each case

According to Brian Ward, professor of experimental medicine at McGill University, that likely meant the three of them went through the autopsy reports in separate rooms.

The way they use the word ‘independently’ here simply means that each of the biased individuals sat in a separate room to reach a personal conclusion before sharing their (largely pre-determined) classifications with each other.

Recommended : Did mRNA Vaccines Trigger Severe Nerve Damage?!

Fact #3 : Many Cases Had Other Likely Causes Of Death

Interestingly, if you go through the summary of those 28 autopsy reports, you will quickly see that some of those cases had other likely causes of death:

Nushida Case 1 : This 14 year-old female had Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS) – a serious condition caused by COVID-19.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Myocarditis Seen Mostly In Young Males

Myocarditis and pericarditis are known but rare side effects of COVID-19 vaccines. It is mostly seen in adolescent and young male adults, and usually within 7 days of receiving the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the US CDC.

It is therefore perplexing that this study suggested that quite a number of very elderly patients died from myocarditis caused by the vaccine. It seems more likely that they developed myocarditis from other causes, or died from other causes.

Mörz Case 1 : 76 year-old man who also had encephalitis.

Recommended : Is FDA Refusing To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

Fact #5 : Myocarditis Also Occurs Naturally

I should also point out that myocarditis occurs naturally, usually though viral infections (like flu or the common cold), as well as infections by bacteria, fungus, or parasites.

COVID-19 infections aside, the “baseline” of myocarditis in the general population pre-COVID ranged b between 1 to 10 cases per 100,000 individuals per year (source). Of that, about 2.5% of the non-COVID-19 myocarditis will result in death (source).

In other words, we should expect about 375,000 cases of myocarditis worldwide, with approximately 9,375 deaths per year, in the pre-COVID years.

So is it not possible that some of those 28 deaths mentioned by the Hulscher et. al. study may be due to other non-vaccine causes of myocarditis?

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Myocarditis Is More Common

What the study may not tell you is that COVID-19 is known to cause myocarditis. In fact, the CDC reported in September 2021 that COVID-19 patients have nearly 16X the risk of developing myocarditis:

During March 2020–January 2021, patients with COVID-19 had nearly 16 times the risk for myocarditis compared with patients who did not have COVID-19, and risk varied by sex and age.

The findings in this report underscore the importance of implementing evidence-based COVID-19 prevention strategies, including vaccination, to reduce the public health impact of COVID-19 and its associated complications.

The risk of dying from COVID-19 myocarditis (13.54% of cases) is also almost 5X higher than non-COVID-19 myocarditis (2.88% of cases), according to a 2022 German study.

If you are worried about dying from myocarditis, well, you should certainly want to avoid getting a COVID-19 infection!

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Fact #8 : Vaccine Benefits Far Outweighs The Risks

Even if we take all those 28 myocarditis cases mentioned in the Hulscher et. al. study at face value, the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination still far outweighs the risk of dying from vaccine myocarditis.

Vaccine myocarditis is rare – the study could only find 28 cases that satisfied its criteria, while myocarditis from COVID-19 infections are far more common.

People suffering from COVID-19 are also almost 5X more likely to die from myocarditis, than people suffering from non-COVID myocarditis (source).

So if you are really worried about myocarditis, or dying from myocarditis, you should definitely get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Do mRNA vaccines have 1 in 800 severe adverse event rate?!

Do mRNA vaccines have a severe adverse event rate of 1 in 800 vaccinated people?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-01-07 : Updated after these claims went viral again
Originally posted @ 2923-10-08

 

Claim : mRNA Vaccines Have 1-in-800 Severe Adverse Event Rate!

People are sharing a Twitter (X) post by Leading Report, which suggests that a landmark paper has shown that mRNA vaccines have severe adverse event rates, and is therefore dangerous and should be pulled from the market.

BRAKING: Landmark paper shows the COVID vaccine has a 1/800 severe adverse event rate; in comparison, the swine flu vaccine was pulled from the market for 1/100,000.

This study was also mentioned in a video (example) featuring Bret Weinstein and Tucker Carlson that is circulating on X (formerly Twitter) in January 2024.

Truth : mRNA Vaccines Were Not Proven Dangerous!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about the mRNA vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Study Was Published In September 2022

First, let me just point out that the study in question isn’t new. It was actually published in the journal Vaccine on September 22, 2022, and you can read the full version here.

This study was even mentioned earlier by Dr. Aseem Malhotra in an interview with Joe Rogan several months ago, which you can read here. Perhaps that’s why Leading Report labelled the news as “BRAKING”, instead of “BREAKING”?

Here is an excerpt from the Fraiman, et. al. study:

Serious adverse events of special interest following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination in randomized trials in adults

Fact #2 : The Study Looked At Reported AESI, Not Side Effects

The Fraiman et. al. study looked at Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) reported in the original Phase 3 trials of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines from 2020. It’s short, so I’m reproducing the results here for your convenience:

Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were associated with an excess risk of serious adverse events of special interest of 10.1 and 15.1 per 10,000 vaccinated over placebo baselines of 17.6 and 42.2 (95 % CI -0.4 to 20.6 and -3.6 to 33.8), respectively.

As you can see, the Fraiman et. al. study looked at “serious adverse events“, not side effects.

Recommended : Do mRNA Vaccines Increase Risk Of Death + Injuries?!

Fact #3 : Adverse Events Are Not Necessarily Side Effects

I should now point out that Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) are not necessarily vaccine side effects. That’s why they are called “adverse events“, and not “side effects“.

Adverse events are “unfavourable” or “unintended” events that happen after vaccination or taking a drug, – which may or may not be caused by the vaccine / drug – like having an anaphylactic reaction, or getting into a car accident.

All 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.

Fact #4 : Brighton AESI List Is More Specific

Unlike the much wider AESI list of 1,291 adverse events used by Pfizer, the priority AESI list from the Brighton Collaboration is much more specific. You can download the December 2020 version here (PDF).

While the Brighton Collaboration AESI list is more specific, it includes adverse events that may not be related to the vaccine itself. As stated at the top of its Executive Summary on Page 4, the AESI list was created based on:

  • known association with immunization or a specific vaccine platform;
  • theoretical association based on animal models;
  • occurrence during wild-type disease as a result of viral replication and/or immunopathogenesis.

As noted in Fact #3, these adverse events are not necessarily vaccine side effects. Again, that’s why they are called “adverse events”, and not “side effects”.

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

Fact #5 : The Study Used An Expanded Brighton AESI List

At first glance, one may be forgiven for thinking that the Fraiman et. al. study used the more specific Brighton Collaboration AESI list.

However, they actually expanded the Brighton list with 29 additional adverse events that the Brighton Collaboration rejected because they were “known to have been reported but not in sufficient numbers to merit inclusion on the AESI list“.

The 29 additional adverse events (see Page 8) that Brighton Collaboration declined to include in the priority list, but the authors added anyway include adverse events like:

  • abscess, alopecia, conjunctivitis, mania, psychosis
  • breast milk, ectopic pregnancy, pregnancy, neonatal diagnoses, foetal diagnoses
  • host-specific diagnoses not related to pregnancy : geriatric, HIV

You can clearly see why the Brighton Collaboration refused to include many of those adverse events – they were most definitely not related to COVID-19 vaccine side effects!

In other words – the Fraiman et. al. study was skewed by the inclusion of 29 additional adverse events that were expressly rejected by the Brighton Collaboration.

Fact #6 : Study Did Not Prove mRNA Vaccines Are Dangerous

While Leading Report suggested in its post that the Fraiman et. al. study showed that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are 125X more dangerous than the swine flu vaccine that was withdrawn from the market, that is not the case at all.

The study offered ZERO EVIDENCE that the mRNA vaccines increased the risk of death or hospitalisation or injury. Neither did it show that the risks of getting the mRNA vaccines exceeded its benefits.

There is already a lot of data on actual, proven COVID-19 vaccine side effects, after more than 20 months of vaccinations (from December 2020 until September 2022). If they wanted to prove that the mRNA vaccines are dangerous, they could have reanalysed the original Phase 3 trial data using proven serious side effects, not serious adverse events.

Unfortunately, they chose to use adverse events instead of side effects, and ended up proving nothing in their study. What a waste of time.

More than a year after this study was published, not only have the mRNA vaccines not been withdrawn from the market, improved versions of the mRNA vaccines against COVID-19 have been approved! That would hardly be the case, if this was really a landmark study, would it?

Bill Gates mRNA Vaccine Approved With Zero Safety Data?!

Was a new self-amplifying mRNA COVID-19 vaccine funded by Bill Gates just approved with zero safety data?!

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

 

Claim : Bill Gates mRNA Vaccine Approved With Zero Safety Data!

People are sharing an article by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), suggesting or claiming that a new self-amplifying mRNA COVID-19 vaccine funded by Bill Gates was just approved with zero safety data!

Here is an excerpt from the article (archive), which is really long. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Bill Gates ‘Self-Amplifying mRNA’ COVID Shot Approved For Public Use With Zero Safety Data

Recommended : Are mRNA Vaccines Contaminated With SV40 DNA?!

 

Truth : No Bill Gates mRNA Vaccine Was Approved!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Bill Gates Funded Daiichi-Sankyo Vaccine

Let me just start by pointing out that the new COVID-19 vaccine in question was developed by Daiichi-Sankyo, and is called DAICHIRONA for Intramuscular Injection (DS-5670).

The Daiichi Sankyo DS-5670 vaccine was developed through the “Vaccine Development Project”, which is funded by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and development (AMED), as well as the “Urgent Improvement Project for Vaccine Manufacturing Systems” supported by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW).

There is no evidence that Bill Gates personally funded the development of this vaccine. There is certainly no evidence he owns this COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : GHIT Fund Targets Drugs For Developing Countries

The link provided in The People’s Voice article does not show Bill Gates funding the Daiichi Sankyo vaccine. It actually links to a Daiichi Sankyo page on the GHIT (Global Health Innovative Technology) Fund that it created in April 2013.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation supports the GHIT Fund, together with the government of Japan, and five Japanese pharmaceutical companies. The GHIT Fund, however, is targeted at developing drugs for combating infectious diseases in developing countries like Chagas disease and malaria.

The GHIT fund has nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines. The funding by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation would therefore have nothing to do with the development of the Daiichi Sankyo DAICHIRONA vaccine.

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Bill Gates For Murder?!

Fact #3 : Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine Was Tested

The claim that the Daiichi Sankyo mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 was approved without testing is without merit, and evidence. The article certainly provided no evidence the DAICHIRONA vaccine was approved without testing.

A quick search would show Daiichi Sankyo researchers published the results from their Phase 2 clinical study on 31 August 2023, in the journal Vaccine. The study was also registered with the Japan Registry of Clinical Trials with the Trial ID of jRCT2071210086.

On 15 November 2022, Daiichi Sankyo announced that it successfully complete the Phase 1/2/3 trial of its DS-5670 mRNA vaccine (PDF), involving 5,000 Japanese adults and senior citizens. It applied for vaccine approval in January 2023, and received it on 2 August 2023 (PDF).

On 7 September 2023, Daiichi Sankyo announced (PDF) that it successfully completed the Phase 3 trial of the improved DS-5670 bivalent vaccine that began in May 2023 (PDF). That was the basis for its supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) on the same day (PDF), which was approved on 28 November 2023 (PDF).

In short – the original and improved bivalent Daiichi Sankyo vaccines underwent and passed clinical trials like other COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #4 : DAICHIRONA Is An mRNA Vaccine

The People’s Voice appears to believe that the Daiichi Sankyo DAICHIRONA vaccine for COVID-19 is a “self-amplifying mRNA vaccine”. That cannot be further from the truth.

The Daiichi Sankyo vaccine, which was formerly known as DS-5670 or DS-5670A, is an mRNA vaccine like the Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY and Moderna Spikevax vaccines.

It does not “self-replicate” or “self-amplify” as claimed. It merely delivers the mRNA instructions to the cell, which then produces the spike protein to display on its surface.

The quote about “self-amplifying mRNA” appears to be lifted off an unrelated article (archive) by The Epoch Times on “self-amplifying RNA vaccines” that might be coming in the future.

However, mRNA (messenger RNA) is different from RNA, and The Epoch Times article was referring to the “next-generation of RNA-based” vaccines.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

The People’s Voice is the new name / brand for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Are residual DNA impurities in mRNA vaccines dangerous, and can they integrate into our DNA?!

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

 

Claim : Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Are Dangerous!

Anti-vaccine activists are sharing and/or promoting an article by The Epoch Times, which claimed / suggested that residual DNA in mRNA vaccines are dangerous, and can potentially integrate into our DNA! Here is an excerpt:

Billions of Copies of Residual DNA in a Single Dose of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine: Preprint

Recommended : Are mRNA Vaccines Contaminated With SV40 DNA?!

 

No Evidence Residual DNA In Vaccines Are Dangerous

Let’s take a closer look at these claims about Residual DNA in vaccines, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : mRNA Vaccines Were Proven Safe + Effective

First, I should point out that the mRNA vaccines underwent large clinical trials before they received their Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), and even after that, they continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

So health regulators and health authorities are well-aware of how safe and effective the mRNA vaccines are. That’s why new mRNA vaccines continue to be approved by health regulators around the world.

Fact #2 : Residual DNA Is Not New

These papers and articles may suggest that residual DNA is a new kind of contaminant, or one that is only found in mRNA vaccines. Neither are true.

Residual DNA is found in all vaccines and biological products manufactured in any kind of cell. The risk of residual DNA has also been investigated for about 60 years now.

To be clear – residual DNA isn’t new, and it is a byproduct of using cells to produce biologicals, and not part of mRNA vaccine technology.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #3 : No Evidence Residual DNA Is Dangerous

In the beginning, some studies raised potential safety issues with residual DNA. So, the FDA set an upper limit of just 10 picograms of residual DNA per medicinal dose in 1985.

In 1986, a WHO study group looked into new cell substrates that are being used to produce biological products, and concluded that the risk is negligible when the amount of residual DNA is 100 picograms per dose.

Then 10 years later – the WHO Expert Committee on Biological Standardization (ECBS) increased the limit to 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, albeit not for microbial, diploid, or primary cell cultures.

In 1997, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said that further data of DNA from continuous mammalian cell lines showed that it poses even less risk than previously thought.

Currently, the WHO and US FDA guidelines recommend that residual DNA in vaccines and other biological products should not exceed 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, and the DNA fragments should be no greater than 200 bp in length.

Even that limit appears to be out of an abundance of caution, as studies have not shown any actual danger from residual DNA, as they are tiny fragments.

Fact #4 : Residual DNA Is Fragmented Into Tiny Pieces

The production of mRNA vaccines at scale do not use any animal cells, but is done through in vitro transcription (IVT). The enzyme DNase is then used to destroy the DNA template and polymerase used in the reaction, and further filtration can be performed to reduce the amount of DNA fragments.

In other words – the DNA used to produce the mRNA vaccines are broken into tiny pieces, and most of it is filtered out. Think of the remnants as pieces of scrap metal left over from a dismantled chemical factory.

Sure, the workers left a ton of scrap metal pieces behind, but so what? The scrap metal may be an eyesore, but it’s not going to give you cancer, or turn you into Spiderman!

In short – there is no evidence that these tiny fragments of DNA will integrate into your genome, or cause your cells to become cancerous.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #5 : mRNA Vaccines Meet Residual DNA Limits

The David J Speicher et al. preprint (which has not yet peer-reviewed) actually showed that the amount of residual DNA “contamination” was far below FDA regulatory limits.

As Professor David Gorski noted, the study authors found that the residual DNA in the mRNA vaccines was far below regulatory limits, and used a logarithmic scale to make them appear much closer to the limit than they really are:

Basically, by the authors’ own measurements, the amount of DNA/vial fell below the FDA guidance of 10 ng DNA/dose.

Did you also notice the little trick they did? They used a log scale to make the total DNA appear to be much closer to the FDA-recommended limit than it really is.

For instance, in all the Moderna vials, the amount of DNA isn’t half of the recommended limit, it’s less than one-tenth the recommended limit, and, in the case of the ori sequence, well under 1/100 of the limit.

The abstract itself even notes that the authors found DNA at “0.28 – 4.27 ng/dose and 0.22 – 2.43 ng/dose (Pfizer), and 0.01 -0.34 ng/dose and 0.25 – 0.78 ng/dose (Moderna), for ori and spike respectively measured by qPCR.”

So, from McKernan and Rose’s own data, the vial with the very highest concentration of DNA was one Pfizer vial that had less than one-half the maximum DNA amount recommended by the FDA, while the Moderna vial with the most plasmid DNA contamination had less than one-tenth the maximum recommended by the FDA.

In short – even the much touted Speicher preprint itself showed that the amount of residual DNA in mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are far below regulatory limits.

The whole controversy is really much ado about nothing. What a bloody waste of time!

Perhaps that’s why they are repackaging the drama in terms of “billions of copies of residual DNA”, instead of just telling us about the actual quantity they found.

The truth is – there are billions of fragments because the DNA was chopped up pretty damn small to ensure that it would pose no threat. And because the fragments so small, it’s pretty impossible to filter them all out.

Recommended : Did Health Canada Confirm SV40 DNA In Pfizer Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : VAERS Reports Are Unverified

Hilariously, the Speicher et al. preprint suggested that mRNA vaccine vials with higher doses of residual DNA correlated with more adverse reactions, as reported in the Vaccine Adverse Reaction Reports System (VAERS).

As I pointed out many times before, VAERS data is unverified, and notoriously susceptible to abuse, and false reporting. That’s because it’s an open system that anyone – not just doctors, can report anything they want.

In addition, the reports may be duplicated and have not been verified to be related to the vaccine or drug in question. Hence, VAERS specifically warns against using its reports to reach any conclusion about the risks or safety of vaccines / drugs in question.

But that is precisely why anti-vaccination activists love using VAERS data – it’s unverified, and very susceptible to abuse and false reporting.

Fact #7 : Study Showed Fewer Adverse Events With More DNA Fragments!

Even more hilariously, the Speicher et al. preprint actually showed that the detection of more DNA fragments (as determined by Qubit fluorometry) correlated with fewer serious adverse events (SAEs).

In other words – this study has inadvertently “proven” that getting mRNA vaccines with more residual DNA will result in fewer adverse effects!

I meant that only in jest, because the study simply does not prove any correlation. It’s just asinine to even attempt to correlate unverified VAERS reports with quantity of residual DNA fragments in any vaccine.

Did Health Canada Confirm SV40 DNA In Pfizer Vaccine?!

Did Health Canada just confirm the presence of SV40 DNA in the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for COVID-19?!

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

 

Claim : Health Canada Confirmed SV40 DNA In Pfizer Vaccine!

Some people are sharing an article by The Epoch Times, which claimed / suggested that Health Canada just confirmed the presence of SV40 (Simian Virus 40) DNA in the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for COVID-19!

Chuck Callesto : BREAKING REPORT: Pfizer accused of NOT DISCLOSING the presence of the Simian Virus 40 [SV40] DNA sequence in its mRNA COV-D-19 vaccine.

The complete SV40 virus was ELIMINATED from Polio vaccines during the 1950s and 1960s because of concerns about its association with CANCER.

Health Canada CONFIRMS Undisclosed Presence of DNA Sequence in Pfizer Shot. -The Epoch TImes

Here is an excerpt from that article by The Epoch Times:

EXCLUSIVE: Health Canada Confirms Undisclosed Presence of DNA Sequence in Pfizer Shot

Recommended : New study shows Cardiac Side Effects of mRNA Vaccines?!

 

Truth : Health Canada Only Confirmed SV40 Enhancer Sequence In Pfizer Vaccine!

Let’s take a closer look at what Health Canada said about the presence of SV40 DNA in the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for COVID-19!

Fact #1 : SV40 Promoter Is Not SV40 Virus

First, I should point out that gene enhancers and promoters are DNA sequences that stimulate gene expression, and have long been used in molecular biology.

The SV40 promoter is a DNA sequence that was derived from the SV40 (Simian Virus 40) virus, and is not the same thing as the SV40 virus DNA. Think of it as a genetic tool obtained from the SV40 virus, just like how botulinum toxin is a treatment derived from the bacteria, Clostridium botulinum.

Finding botulinum toxin in a vial of Botox does not mean there is bacteria in that vial. Similarly, finding the SV40 promoter in the Pfizer vaccine does not mean there is SV40 in the vaccine. To be clear – mRNA vaccines do not contain the SV40 virus:

There is no evidence to indicate the presence of SV40, a virus found in monkey kidneys that can potentially cause cancer in humans, in the formulation of COVID-19 vaccines.

– Alessandro Faia, spokesperson for the European Medicines Agency (EMA)

Fact #2 : Pfizer DNA Plasmid Won’t Integrate With Genome

In response to The Epoch Times‘ question about SV40 plasmids integrating into the genome, Health Canada explained why that is simply not possible (archive):

The Pfizer DNA plasmid used to produce the COVID-19 vaccine is distinct from DNA adenovirus vectors in sequence and biological functions.

Furthermore, the Pfizer plasmid does not contain sequences corresponding to SV40 proteins studied in the paper cited. Therefore, the integration mechanisms described are not applicable.

Recommended : Is FDA Refusing To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

Fact #3 : Health Canada Confirms mRNA Vaccines Meet Regulatory Limit

Health Canada actually wrote a detailed explanation (archive) of why DNA fragments are expected in mRNA vaccine manufacturing, and why the quantity in the vaccines is not a concern.

Plasmids are an essential starting material for the production of mRNA vaccines. During the downstream process in mRNA vaccine manufacturing, the plasmid DNA is digested with enzymes to small fragments, and further removed to a level of not more than 10 ng/human dose, which is in line with the World Health Organization’s recommendation concerning residual DNA in biological drugs. The DNA is digested with enzymes post-transcription.

Health Canada was aware of the presence of residual plasmid DNA as a process-related impurity during review and prior to the authorization of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. In addition, the release testing data for every COVID-19 vaccine lot released into the Canadian market were reviewed and deemed to meet the requirements approved by Health Canada. Furthermore, different assays assessing the same vaccine property, or even the same assay being performed in different laboratories, may generate different results.

It is important to assess the results using the authorized validated assays performed by the vaccine manufacturers to ensure that the quality of commercial vaccine lots are comparable to lots shown to be safe and efficacious in clinical studies.

In short – the mRNA vaccines approved in Canada meet regulatory limits for residual DNA. This isn’t new or shocking to Health Canada, or other regulatory agencies.

Fact #4 : McKernan Study Is In Dispute

The Epoch Times had earlier written about the McKernan et al. preprint (which has not yet peer-reviewed that fuelled the SV40 promoter DNA in Pfizer vaccine controversy.

The problem though was – the study tested vials of “unknown provenance” which were sent to the authors “anonymously in the mail without cold packs“. Even though they claimed that the vials were “unopened”, it was impossible to know if they were tampered with.

In addition, qualifying residual DNA levels is based on measurements relative to RNA levels. Because the vials were not kept cold, their contents would certainly have been degraded. Since RNA is less stable than DNA and would degrade far more under such conditions, it would likely have resulted in abnormal DNA-RNA levels by the time the tests were conducted.

Finally, the McKernan preprint itself showed that the amount of residual DNA in mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are far below regulatory limits. So it was really much ado about nothing!

Recommended : Did CDC Say COVID Vaccines Cause AIDS + Cancer?!

Fact #5 : SV40 Promoter Does Not Cause Cancer

The Epoch Times article suggested that there is a risk of the SV40 promoter causing cancer. That has been refuted by scientists:

It’s just the volume knob that drives high level expression of anything put under its control, which in this case is just an antibiotic resistance marker.

The fear about the SV40 sequences is total nonsense. The vaccine is not going to cause cancer. There is no cancer causing gene in the vaccine.

– Phillip Buckhaults, director of the Cancer Genetics Lab at the University of South Carolina

The SV40 promoter, on its own, can’t cause cancer. The part of SV40 that’s potentially cancer-causing, known as the T-antigen, isn’t present in the vaccine.

– Michael Imperiale, molecular biologist at the University of Michigan Medical School

Fact #6 : mRNA Vaccines Meet Residual DNA Limits

The production of mRNA vaccines at scale do not use any animal cells, but is done through in vitro transcription (IVT). The enzyme DNase is then used to destroy the DNA template and polymerase used in the reaction, and further filtration can be performed to reduce the amount of DNA fragments.

It was the use of an incorrect DNase stock that resulted in a batch of Pfizer vaccines having more residual DNA than usual – 815 ng of DNA per mL of RNA. Other than that one batch, all other batches had at most – 211 ng of DNA per mL of RNA, which was below the “commercial acceptance criterion” of the European Medicines Agency of ≤330 ng of DNA / per mg of RNA.

In Canada, the limit was set at 10 ng of DNA per dose, which is in line with WHO recommendations. According to Health Canada, the mRNA vaccines all comply with this requirement.

Here is the takeaway – any mRNA vaccine that does not meet regulatory limits would not be allowed to be used.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #7 : Residual DNA Won’t Integrate Into Our Genome

The presence of residual DNA itself does not mean that they will integrate into our genome. For one thing – these are DNA fragments that have been broken down by the DNase enzyme.

Think of them as parts of a factory which was used to build the mRNA vaccine, but dismantled once the vaccine has been manufactured. Sure, the disposal team may have left a couple of bolts and screws lying on the floor, but can they be used to recreate the factory? No.

To be clear – neither the COVID-19 vaccines, not any residual DNA they may contain, can change our genome. On top of that, the vaccines are injected into the muscle, whose cells are “post-mitotic”, which means they are no longer able to change.

mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Did a new German study show mRNA vaccines creating spike proteins in human heart cells, causing heart abnormalities?!

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

 

Claim : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart!

Some people are sharing articles by American Faith and Epoch Health, which claim / suggest that a new German study found that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines created spike proteins in human heart cells. resulting in heart abnormalities.

Steve Kirsch : Wait a second. I thought these vaccines were safe and effective? Why are they attacking heart cells?

Chief Nerd : New research out of Germany observing rat and human heart cells shows that within 48 hours of vaccination, the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines form spike proteins. Spike proteins, made from the mRNA instructions inside the vaccines, were detected in the heart cells. While both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines caused cell abnormalities, the two induced different anomalies.

Here’s an excerpt from the American Faith article:

American Faith : COVID-19 Vaccine Research Shows Spike Protein Forming in Heart Cells

Here’s an excerpt from the Epoch Health article:

Epoch Health : mRNA COVID Vaccines Form Spike Protein in Heart Cells, but Cause Different Anomalies

Recommended : New study shows Cardiac Side Effects of mRNA Vaccines?!

 

Truth : Study Showed mRNA Vaccine Effect On Rat Heart Cells!

Let’s take a look at what we know about this new study, and see what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Study Was Peer-Reviewed

First, I should point out that this is a peer-reviewed study that was published in a reputable journal – the British Journal of Pharmacology. So it’s not like the “Belgian study” that allegedly showed that the Pfizer mRNA vaccine causes turbo cancer.

That said – the pre-publication peer review is only the first step in scientific review process. After its publication, it is still subject to post-publication peer review, including verification and further research by other scientists.

Fact #2 : Study Is Not Available Publicly

I should also point out that the study itself is hidden behind a paywall, with only a brief abstract available publicly. This is important because without knowing the details, it is simply impossible to know the accuracy or significance of this study. As they say – the devil is in the details.

Fortunately, it appears that Dr. Ralf B. Lukner MD PhD has access to the study itself, and has provided some important insights into this study. So this fact check will rely on both his insights, and what’s available publicly.

Fact #3 : Study Was Conducted On Rat Heart Cells

According to the public abstract of the study, it was conducted on isolated rat cardiomyocytes (RCm) over a 72 hour period.

Basically, the study did not involve any human beings or even live animals. Instead, it used single heart muscle cells from a rat.

Even though both American Faith and Epoch Health claimed that the study involved human heart cells, the abstract itself did not mention any human heart cells being used.

In real life, the COVID-19 vaccines are injected into the deltoid muscle of a human being, and not into the heart of a rat. In real life, heart muscle cells also do not soak in a bath of hyper-concentrated  COVID-19 vaccine for 3 days.

So it is important to understand that this is not at all representative of what actually happens in a human being, or even a live rat…

Recommended : Is FDA Refusing To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

Fact #4 : Study Used Very High Vaccine Doses

According to Dr. Lukner, the study used very high doses of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines:

  • Pfizer : 1 μg/mL
  • Moderna : 10 μg/mL

In contrast, human beings – which have 36 trillion more cells, only receive 30 μg of the Pfizer vaccine, or 100 μg of the Moderna vaccine.

By my estimate, the doses used in this study are far beyond what any human being will ever receive in a million lifetimes:

  • Pfizer : 1.2 trillion vaccine doses
  • Moderna : 3.6 trillion vaccine doses

As any scientist can tell you – the dose makes the poison. At sufficiently high doses, all chemicals – including water and oxygen – can be toxic.

Fact #5 : It Was A Laboratory Study

I should also point out the salient fact that it was a laboratory study (also known as an in vitro study), not a clinical study.

In-vitro studies are important, but they cannot be extrapolated to make any conclusion about what actually happens in a human body.

For example, laboratory studies showed that hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin have an inhibitory effect on the SARS-CoV-2 virus; but once tested in actual human beings – they were shown to have no clinical benefit.

In other words – what happens in a laboratory, may not happen in an actual human being.

Fact #6 : Nothing Happened Until Spike Proteins Were Created

Interestingly, the study authors pointed out that both Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines did not affect the rat heart muscle cells in any way, until they started producing the spike protein after 48 hours of soaking in a bath of vaccine.

Assuming that this can be replicated by other scientists, this suggests a couple of things:

  • the rat heart muscle cells are not affected by the presence of the mRNA vaccine itself
  • the rat heart muscle cells only “malfunctioned” after they created the spike proteins

Is it therefore possible that the rat heart muscle cells might be malfunctioning because they were overwhelmed by the extremely high vaccine doses into excessively creating the spike proteins, instead of performing their normal functions?

Is it also possible that the spike proteins caused morphological changes (shape, size, texture, etc.) that disrupted the rat heart muscle cells’ ability to contract properly?

Needless to say – MORE research is needed before any conclusion can be made about the mRNA vaccine’s cardiotoxic effects in rats, never mind any potential cardiotoxic effects in actual human beings.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Infections Produce Far More Spike Proteins!

It is important to point out that unlike the SARS-CoV-2 virus, COVID-19 vaccines do not multiply and can only induce a limited number of cells to produce the spike protein. And again – the vaccines are injected into the arm, and not the heart.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus, on the other hand, will spread through the body, creating spike proteins in a multitude of cells. If the spike proteins are the problem, which this study suggests, then a COVID-19 infection poses a far greater threat than the COVID-19 vaccine.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines DOUBLE Heart Disease Risk?

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Infections Cause Heart Problems

Finally, I should point out that COVID-19 infections are known to cause heart problems, even in people who recover.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus does not only cause myocarditis, it can also damage heart muscle tissue directly. COVID-19 infections have also been shown to cause serious ventricular arrhythmias, and even inflame the coronary arteries.

The mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 are already known to cause pericarditis and myocarditis in young males, but this is a relatively rare cardiac side effect and generally milder than if caused by COVID-19 infections.

That’s why health authorities across the world continue to advocate getting the COVID-19 vaccines. After all – the risk of getting myocarditis from multiple doses of the vaccines are much lower than the risk of getting myocarditis from a single COVID-19 infection!

FDA Asked To Fully Release Pfizer Vaccine Data By 2076?!

Did the US FDA ask to fully release the Pfizer vaccine data only by the year 2076?!

Find out what’s going on, and what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Asked To Fully Release Pfizer Vaccine Data By 2076!

The infamous DiedSuddenly account on X (formerly Twitter) just posted a screenshot of an article which claims that the US FDA just asked to fully release the Pfizer vaccine data only by the year 2076!

DiedSuddenly : What were they hiding?

Here is what the screenshot said:

FDA Asks Federal Judge to Grant it Until the Year 2076 to Fully Release Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine Data

The fed gov’t shields Pfizer from liability. Gives it billions of dollars. Makes Americans take its products. But won’t let you see the data supporting its safety/efficacy. Who does the gov’t work for?

Aaron Siri

Recommended : Did FDA Ask For 75 Years To Release Pfizer Vaccine Data?!

 

Truth : FDA Did NOT Ask To Fully Release Pfizer Vaccine Data Only By 2076!

This is yet another example of misinformation posted by the infamous DiedSuddenly account on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Screenshots Was From November 2021

First, let me just point out that the screenshot is not new or even recent, but was apparently taken in November 2021.

Aaron Siri posted that article on his Substack on 17 November 2021, and based on the time, the screenshot was likely taken on 17 or 18 November 2021.

Why would DiedSuddenly repost this screenshot almost 2 years later?

Fact #2 : FDA Did Not Ask To Fully Release Pfizer Vaccine Data By 2076

First, let me be clear – the US FDA did not ask to fully release the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine data only by the year 2076. In fact, as best as I could tell – the FDA never mentioned the date 2076.

That appears to be the “interpretation” of Aaron Siri, the lawyer working for PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) – the group requesting the data that the FDA used to licence the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

As you will see below, it appears to be based on ignoring facts and basic math…

Fact #3 : FDA Has To Redact Files Before They Are Released

It is not simply a matter of handing over the documents to PHMPT. The FDA has to go through every document and redact information that are exempt from disclosure under FOIA, before it can release them.

That process is not only time-consuming, it is resource-intensive because it requires government information specialists to review each page line-by-line.

The FDA estimated that it would take 8 minutes per page to read and review records for FOIA production.

Fact #4 : FDA Had 400 Other Pending FOIA Requests

The FOIA request by PHMPT is being handled by the Access Litigation and Freedom of Information Branch at the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER).

That is a small department with just ten employees, including the director and two trainees. So they really only had just seven people who were trained well enough to process FOIA requests.

At that time, that small team was processing “approximately 400 currently pending FOIA requests“, while being embroiled in “6 active FOIA litigation matters“.

Needless to say, the heavy workload greatly limits how many pages this office can go through and redact every month.

Fact #5 : PHMPT Demanded 329,000 Pages!

The FDA asked PHMPT to narrow their request by specifying records they don’t require, so they can focus on processing the important documents they need.

The PHMPT, however, insisted that the FDA process and deliver ALL documents related to the approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine – some 329,000 pages!

That would require a processing rate of over 80,000 pages per month – far in excess of what the FDA FOIA office is capable of handling.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Vaccine Documents Reveal 1,291 Side Effects?!

Fact #6 : FDA Vaccine Approval Is Different From FOIA Process

It seems obvious, but it has to be said – the FDA vaccine approval process is different from the FOIA process.

The vaccine approval process involves FDA scientists evaluating the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for the EUA (Emergency Use Authorisation) or full FDA approval.

The FOIA process, on the other hand, involves FDA information specialists going through each page line-by-line to identify and redact proprietary information.

Fact #7 : FDA Vaccine Approval Process Adds A Ton Of New Documents

The FDA vaccine approval team went through fewer documents, because they only need to look at relevant information provided by Pfizer and BioNTech.

The FDA team in charge of this FOIA request would necessarily have to go through far more documents, because the approval process itself adds a ton of new documentation.

Even the PHMPT acknowledged that, specifically asking for “all correspondence and written summaries of oral discussions” related to the FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Hence, it is ludicrous for the PHMPT to suggest that the two processes were similar in effort and time.

Fact #8 : FDA Processes FOIA Requests In 500-Page Blocks

The FDA processes FOIA requests in 500-page blocks, which allow them to provide documents to more requesters, and avoid a few large requests monopolising their “finite processing resources”.

This is not a special processing limitation on the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine data, but a standard FDA processing rate that the courts have upheld for a long time.

Read more : Full FDA Approval vs EUA for Vaccines : What’s Different?

Fact #9 : FDA Processing FOIA Requests Faster Than Proposed

The FDA was able to process some records faster than the 500-page rate, as they noted in their 6 December 2021 brief. They also said that they can release more than 12,000 pages by end of January 2022.

Even back in December 2021, the FDA was doing above and beyond what it pledged to do, delivering almost 5000 pages per month – about 10X its promised rate.

At that rate, the FDA would finish processing 329,000 pages in 69 months – just under 6 years. Obviously, 6 years is far less than the 55 years claimed… and would put the end date at sometime in 2027, not 2076.

Fact #10 : It Would Take PHMPT Months To Read Everything

PHMPT stated that they are a group of over 30 people. Let’s say they are 35 strong, and they take the same 8 minutes to read through each page.

Even if they all sat down and read for 8 hours a day, it would take them over 7 months just to read through the 329,000 pages ONCE.

And it should be noted that this involves 5X more people than the FDA FOIA team, and they are all dedicated to this singular task of reading those Pfizer documents.

Fact #11 : PHMPT Took Almost 108 Days To Read 5 Documents!

PHMPT took almost 108 days to read through the first batch of five documents that the FDA released to them on 17 November 2021.

It was only in early March 2022 when they found the 9 pages listing some 1,291 adverse events of special interest.

This not only proves that the FDA was right about how much time it takes to read these documents, it also shows that the PHMPT does not really need all 329,000 documents within 108 days.

After all, it took the PHMPT almost that long just to read 5 documents! At this rate, it will take them some 16,450 years to read all 329,000 Pfizer documents…

Read more : Pfizer Forced To Release 9 Pages Of Vaccine Side Effects?!

Fact #12 : FDA Released Almost All Of PHMPT Priority List By Jan 2022

PHMPT appears to be cognisant that it is stupid to request for “everything” when most of the pages may not be relevant at all.

That’s why they sent the FDA a priority list of eight (8) items. And guess what – the US FDA was able to provide seven (7) of those items by January 31, 2022!

So Aaron Siri’s public griping about the FDA taking so long appears to be nothing more than theatre.

Fact #13 : Judge Asked FDA To Release 55,000 Pages A Month

On 6 January 2022, US District Judge Mark Pittman ordered a compromise, noting that “the Court recognises the “unduly burdensome” challenges that this FOIA request may present to the FDA“.

  • The FDA will produce “more than 12,000 pages” as it proposed, by 31 January 2022.
  • The FDA will produce the remaining documents at a rate of 55,000 pages per month, starting 1 March 2022.

Granted, the FDA did not win the right to continue processing at its own pace, but neither did the judge agree to let PHMPT force the FDA to deliver all documents within 108 days. It was ultimately a compromise.

For certain, Judge Pittman’s order would mean that the FDA would have to fully release the Pfizer vaccine documents by August 2022!

His January 2022 judgement effectively wiped out the claim that FDA will only fully release the data by 2076. So it is curious why the DiedSuddenly account on X (formerly Twitter) would repost this old claim…

New Study Proved Cardiac Side Effects Of mRNA Vaccines?!

Did a new study just demonstrate the cardiac side effects of Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines for COVID-19?!

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

 

Claim : New Study Shows Cardiac Side Effects Of mRNA Vaccines!

Some people are sharing a new study in the British Journal of Pharmacology, suggesting / claiming that it shows the cardiac side effects of mRNA vaccines.

Dr. Aseem Malhotra : New peer reviewed mRNA vaccine study in rats extremely disturbing if not surprising

‘ .. in isolated cardiomyocytes, both mRNA-1273 and BNT162b2 induce specific dysfunctions that correlate pathophysiologically to cardiomyopathy’

Chief Nerd : “Key Results: After 48 h, expression of the encoded spike protein was detected in ventricular cardiomyocytes for both mRNAs.”

Dr Dean Patterson : Here is another thought provoking study showing Cardiac inflammation after covid mRNA vaccination. Shall we now stop vaccinating people and take these safety concerns seriously?

Recommended : Is FDA Refusing To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

 

Truth : Study Showed mRNA Vaccine Effect On Rat Cardiac Cells

Let’s take a look at what we know about this new study, and see what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Study Was Peer-Reviewed

First, I should point out that this is a peer-reviewed study that was published in a reputable journal – the British Journal of Pharmacology. So it’s not like the “Belgian study” that allegedly showed that the Pfizer mRNA vaccine causes turbo cancer.

That said – the pre-publication peer review is only the first step in scientific review process. After its publication, it is still subject to post-publication peer review, including verification and further research by other scientists.

Fact #2 : Study Is Not Available Publicly

I should also point out that the study itself is hidden behind a paywall, with only a brief abstract available publicly. This is important because without knowing the details, it is simply impossible to know the accuracy or significance of this study. As they say – the devil is in the details.

Fortunately, it appears that Dr. Ralf B. Lukner MD PhD has access to the study itself, and has provided some important insights into this study. So this fact check will rely on both his insights, and what’s available publicly.

Fact #3 : Study Was Conducted On Rat Cardiac Cells

According to the public abstract of the study, it was conducted on isolated rat cardiomyocytes (RCm) over a 72 hour period.

Basically, the study did not involve any human beings or even live animals. Instead, it used heart muscle cells from a rat.

In real life, the COVID-19 vaccines are injected into the deltoid muscle of a human being, and not into the heart of a rat. In real life, heart muscle cells also do not soak in a bath of hyper-concentrated  COVID-19 vaccine for 3 days.

So it is important to understand that this is not at all representative of what actually happens in a human being, or even a live rat…

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #4 : Study Used Very High Vaccine Doses

According to Dr. Lukner, the study used very high doses of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines:

  • Pfizer : 1 μg/mL
  • Moderna : 10 μg/mL

In contrast, human beings – which have 36 trillion more cells, only receive 30 μg of the Pfizer vaccine, or 100 μg of the Moderna vaccine.

By my estimate, the doses used in this study are far beyond what any human being will ever receive in a million lifetimes:

  • Pfizer : 1.2 trillion vaccine doses
  • Moderna : 3.6 trillion vaccine doses

As any scientist can tell you – the dose makes the poison. At sufficiently high doses, all chemicals – including water and oxygen – can be toxic.

Fact #5 : It Was A Laboratory Study

I should also point out the salient fact that it was a laboratory study (also known as an in vitro study), not a clinical study.

In-vitro studies are important, but they cannot be extrapolated to make any conclusion about what actually happens in a human body.

For example, laboratory studies showed that hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin have an inhibitory effect on the SARS-CoV-2 virus; but once tested in actual human beings – they were shown to have no clinical benefit.

In other words – what happens in a laboratory, may not happen in an actual human being.

Fact #6 : Nothing Happened Until Spike Proteins Were Created

Assuming that this can be replicated by other scientists, this suggests a couple of things:

  • the rat cardiac muscle cells only “malfunctioned” after they created the spike proteins

Did Mayo Clinic Admit Hydroxychloroquine Can Treat Covid?!

Did the Mayo Clinic just admit that hydroxychloroquine may be used to treat COVID-19?!

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

 

Claim : Mayo Clinic Admitted Hydroxychloroquine Can Treat COVID-19!

People are sharing a Mayo Clinic article, or screenshots of that Mayo Clinic article, claiming that it shows the Mayo  Clinic quietly admitting that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) can be used to treat COVID-19 patients!

DC_Draino : 🚨Mayo Clinic quietly updates website to say Hydroxychloroquine can be used to treat Covid patients

Media smeared it

All because Big Pharma couldn’t have any therapeutic drugs available in order to make billions from vaccine EUA

Recommended : COVID vaccines have 1000X death rate than safe limit?!

 

Truth : Mayo Clinic Did Not Admit Hydroxychloroquine Can Treat COVID-19!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about COVID-19 treatments, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Mayo Clinic Posted This Back In 2020

First, I should address the claim that the Mayo Clinic “quietly” updated its website recently to say that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) can be used to treat COVID-19 patients.

The truth is the Mayo Clinic first mentioned hydroxychloroquine as a possible treatment for COVID-19 more than 3 years ago – on 22 May 2020, to be specific.

It was not a recent development, or even a quiet change. The last time Mayo Clinic appears to have changed its hydroxychloroquine article regarding COVID-19 was in June 2020!

Just because some people did not notice the changes until three years later in September 2023, does not mean the Mayo Clinic “quietly” admitted anything.

Fact #2 : Mayo Clinic Warned About Hydroxychloroquine

The Mayo Clinic article only stated that hydroxychloroquine “may also be used” to treat COVID-19 in “certain hospitalised patients“.

Hydroxychloroquine may also be used to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) in certain hospitalized patients.

More importantly, the next paragraph actually warned people against self-medicating with hydroxychloroquine, and said that it “should only be used for COVID-19 in a hospital or during clinical trials“.

The Mayo Clinic article also explicitly pointed out that hydroxychloroquine may increase the risk of developing heart rhythm problems.

Using this medicine alone or with other medicines (eg, azithromycin) may increase your risk of heart rhythm problems (eg, QT prolongation, ventricular fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia). Hydroxychloroquine should only be used for COVID-19 in a hospital or during clinical trials. Do not take any medicine that contains hydroxychloroquine unless prescribed by your doctor.

Recommended : Peter McCullough Testified To EU Parliament On Vaccine Safety?!

Fact #3 : Mayo Clinic Article Changed According To Evidence

The Mayo Clinic article on hydroxychloroquine actually changed twice in 2020, as new evidence presented itself during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To make it easier for you to understand, here is the timeline of the Mayo Clinic updates on hydroxychloroquine, and some significant points in the use of HCQ to treat COVID-19:

18 March 2020 : The WHO announced that chloroquine and HCQ would be tested in the multinational Solidarity clinical trial for COVID-19 treatments using existing drugs.

19 March 2020 : US President Donald Trump encouraged the use of chloroquine and HCQ during a national press conference, causing a massive increase in demand for both drugs in the US.

28 March 2020 : US FDA authorised the use of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate to treat COVID-19, under an Emergency Use Authorisation as an experimental treatment for emergency use in hospitalised patients.

8 April 2020 : The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) began the first clinical trial to assess whether hydroxychloroquine is safe and effective to treat COVID-19.

24 April 2020 : US FDA cautioned against using chloroquine / hydroxychloroquine outside of a hospital or clinical trial, after reports of adverse events including heart problems and deaths.

Between 8-22 May 2020 : Mayo Clinic first updated its hydroxychloroquine article to say that it “may be used” to treat COVID-19 patients in “certain hospitalised patients

5 June 2020 : Hydroxychloroquine was discontinued in the UK RECOVERY Trial when a preliminary analysis of the data showed that it provided “no beneficial effect” in patients hospitalised with COVID-19.

Between 5-13 June 2020 : Mayo Clinic updated its HCQ article to warn about the risk of heart rhythm problems while taking hydroxychloroquine. It also warned that HCQ should only be used “in a hospital or during clinical trials“.

15 June 2020 : US FDA revoked the EUA for both chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, while allowing clinical trials for both drugs to continue.

20 June 2020 : US NIH halted its clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine, after it showed that HCQ was “unlikely to be beneficial to hospitalised patients with COVID-19”.

4 July 2020 : WHO discontinued the hydroxychloroquine arm of the Solidarity Trial, after HCQ produced “little or no reduction in the mortality of hospitalised COVID-19 patients“.

24 September 2023 : Mayo Clinic article from 13 June 2020 went viral on social media after former Trump advisor, Peter Navarro, posted it on X (formerly known as Twitter).

2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines : What You Need To Know!

The FDA just approved two new 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines, which the CDC is now recommending for everyone 6 months and older!

Here is what you need to know about these new COVID-19 vaccines for 2023-2024!

 

FDA Approves Two 2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines!

On September 11, 2023, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna for 2023-2024.

In tandem, the US FDA also removed authorisation for the previous Pfizer and Moderna Bivalent vaccine in the United States.

FDA Takes Action on Updated mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines to Better Protect Against Currently Circulating Variants

You may not notice but the FDA is not calling these vaccines a “booster dose”. Instead, both vaccines are considered as “updated vaccines” that will better target the currently circulating SARS-CoV-2 virus variants.

Both 2023-2024 updated vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are based on the same mRNA vaccine technology as their original and bivalent vaccines. But the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines no longer targets the original, ancestral SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Instead, they both target the XBB.1.5 variant, which was dominant when these vaccines were developed. Even though the XBB.1.5 variant is no longer the dominant variant, the FDA has determined that it is similar enough to most prevailing variants to offer good cross-protection.

As before, these updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines are designed to prevent death and severe disease, and not avoid mild disease or symptomatic infections.

The FDA is still reviewing a third updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine from Novavax. The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine does not use mRNA, and is based on a synthetic spike protein with an adjuvant instead.

CDC Recommends 2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines!

On Tuesday, September 12, 2023, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially recommended that everyone 6 months and older get the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines that were just approved by the US FDA.

CDC Recommends Updated COVID-19 Vaccine for Fall/Winter Virus Season

CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against the potentially serious outcomes of COVID-19 illness this fall and winter. Updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna will be available later this week.

Vaccination remains the best protection against COVID-19-related hospitalization and death. Vaccination also reduces your chance of suffering the effects of Long COVID, which can develop during or following acute infection and last for an extended duration.  If you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine in the past 2 months, get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself this fall and winter.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is always changing, and protection from COVID-19 vaccines declines over time. Receiving an updated COVID-19 vaccine can restore protection and provide enhanced protection against the variants currently responsible for most infections and hospitalizations in the United States.

Last season, those who received a 2022-2023 COVID-19 vaccine saw greater protection against illness and hospitalization than those who did not receive a 2022-2023 vaccine.  To date, hundreds of millions of people have safely received a COVID-19 vaccine under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.

This recommendation came after the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) was presented with new data which showed that the highest rates of hospitalisation and deaths from COVID-19 were for the very old – adults over 75, and the very young – infants younger than 6 months.

Recommended : Did Bill Gates Develop mRNA Vaccine Patches For The Poor?!

 

CDC Recommendations For 2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines

CDC just released its recommendations for who should get the 2023-2024 updated COVID-19 vaccines:

Everyone 6 Years And Older

The CDC recommends that everyone 6 years and older should get one dose of the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, regardless of whether they received any original COVID-19 vaccine in the past or not.

KJ + Noor Hisham just sued by COVID vaccine victims?!

Were KJ (Khairy Jamaluddin), Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Pharmaniaga just sued by COVID-19 vaccine victims in Malaysia?!

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

 

Claim : KJ + Noor Hisham Just Sued By COVID Vaccine Victims!

People are sharing an AgendaDaily article (in Malay) on WhatsApp and social media platforms, claiming that KJ (Khairy Jamaluddin) and Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah just sued by victims of the COVID-19 vaccine in Malaysia!

The viral post also claimed that the COVID-19 vaccine victims also sued the three COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers in Malaysia – Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Pharmaniaga.

KJ, Dr Noor Hisham sued over Covid-19 vaccine issue

🚻ı|ı🔥NO☆🔥ı|ı ﷽
Three Covid-19 vaccine manufacturers were also sued, Pfizer, Astrazeneca and Pharmaniaga

15 O6 2O23
ABE YES NO

KOTA KINABALU: A group of vaccine recipients filed a lawsuit against the government and the Malaysian Ministry of Health (KKM), especially the former minister in charge of the national vaccination program, Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar after claiming to be a victim of the side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Recommended : Did people in Sabah sue KKM for forced vaccination?!

 

Truth : KJ + Noor Hisham Sued By COVID Vaccine Victims In 2022!

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 : Agenda Daily Article Copied From Sinar Harian

I should start by pointing out that the Agenda Daily article is an almost exact copy of its source, a Sinar Harian article.

Fact #2 : Likely Source For False Claims About Sabah Lawsuit

I should also point out this piece of fake news is possibly the source for the earlier false claims that people in Sabah just filed a lawsuit against the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) for forced vaccination.

As mentioned in my fact check article, I can find no evidence of such a lawsuit by people in Sabah. This viral message is the only one that suggests that a COVID-19 vaccination lawsuit was filed in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Lawsuit Was Filed In Kota Kinabalu

The viral message mentioned Kota Kinabalu as the location, which appears to be completely false. The Agenda Daily article it listed as its source did not mention any location.

But the original article by Sinar Harian mentioned Shah Alam, Selangor, as its location. The law firm Shahrin Satheer Kamal & Co. is also based in Rawang, Selangor.

Therefore, the lawsuit was likely filed in Shah Alam, and not Kota Kinabalu as alleged by the viral message.

Fact #4 : Original News Was Published November 2022

The original news was originally published on 16 November 2022, and not on 15 June 2023 as suggested by the viral message.

Noor Hisham Abdullah retired on 21 April 2023, while Khairy Jamaluddin ceased being the Malaysia Minister of Health on 24 November 2022. Whoever created that viral message took care to change their status to match the new date.

Fact #5 : Lawsuit Was Allegedly Filed In November 2022

The Sinar Harian article mentioned that on 16 November 2022, 44 people represented by Shahrin Satheer Kamal & Co. filed a lawsuit against:

  • Malaysia Minister of Health, Khairy Jamaluddin
  • Malaysia Director General of Health, Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah
  • COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers – Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Pharmaniaga

However, a day later – on 17 November 2022, Khairy Jamaluddin said at a press conference that he has yet to receive any lawsuit notice:

I have not received the notice of the summons. When I receive it, I will ask the lawyer I will appoint to answer it.

Since then, there has been no update on this lawsuit, so it is unknown if it was actually filed, or what has occurred since it was filed.

Fact #6 : Malaysia Has A COVID-19 Vaccine Injury Fund

Like most countries around the world, Malaysia has a COVID-19 vaccine injury fund. Established on 21 March 2021, it is called Bantuan Khas Kewangan Kesan Mudarat Vaksin COVID-19 (Special Financial Assistance for COVID-19 Vaccine Adverse Effects), and pays out:

  • RM 50,000 for serious side effects that requires extended hospitalisation
  • RM 500,000 for permanent disability or death from the COVID-19 vaccine

If anyone is injured or dies as a result of the COVID-19 vaccines, the victim or the victim’s family can file for compensation with this fund. There is no need to file a lawsuit (and pay any legal fees) to get compensated.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Proven Safe + Effective

All COVID-19 vaccines underwent large clinical trials and were proven to be safe and effective, before receiving their Emergency Use Authorisation. Hence, it is wrong to claim that COVID-19 vaccines were never tested in a clinical trial.

In addition, approved COVID-19 vaccines continued to be monitored for safety and efficacy, and many eventually received their full FDA approval after many months of post-marketing monitoring.

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.

Recommended : Did four SIA pilots die suddenly from vaccine in May?!

 

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) .

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

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.

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

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 Lady Gaga Just Lose 300K Fans Over Pfizer Ad?!

Did Lady Gaga lose 300,000 fans after she promoted Nurtec – a Pfizer drug that treats migraine?!

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

 

Claim : Lady Gaga Loses 300K Fans Over Pfizer Ad!

People are claiming that Lady Gaga is being severely criticised by her fans for promoting Nurtec – a Pfizer migraine drug, so much so that she lost 300,000 fans!

@sourbenji : Lady Gaga has lost over 300,000 followers since her Nurtec ad 🙁

Recommended : Was Pfizer Just Fined $2.3 Billion For Vaccine Fraud?!

 

Truth : Lady Gaga Not Lose 300K Fans Over Pfizer Ad!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Lady Gaga Was Upfront About Pfizer Partnership

Lady Gaga (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986) recently posted a photo from the Chromatica Ball Tour last year, with a prominent Nurtec ODT (rimegepant) logo at the top right corner.

The June 13 Instagram carousel post included her personal testimony on Nurtec’s efficacy, followed by official Pfizer safety information on its Nurtec migraine drug:

Ever since childhood, I’ve dealt with migraine pain. When I tried Nurtec® ODT (rimegepant) 75 mg for the first time, I’ll never forget wishing I had found it sooner. That’s why I’m proud to partner with Nurtec ODT. 💜 We’re in this together. If you’re ready to speak to a doctor, ask about Nurtec ODT today. #MHAM

Lady Gaga, or her team, clearly labelled the Instagram post as a “[p]aid partnership with nurtecodt“, with the hashtags #pfizersponsored #nurtecodtpartner and #ad.

Fact #2 : Product Information + Disclaimers Are Necessary

Under her personal post, she included the official Pfizer product information and disclaimers:

Individual results may vary. Prescription only.

Nurtec ODT is for the acute treatment of migraine and the preventive treatment of episodic migraine in adults. Select Safety Information: Do not take if allergic to Nurtec ODT. Allergic reactions can occur, even days after using. Allergic reactions include trouble breathing, rash, and swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, or throat. Most common side effects were nausea (2.7%) and indigestion/stomach pain (2.4%). See full Approved Uses and Important Safety Information included in the image carousel.

While some people are criticising Lady Gaga for posting that information, and two Nurtec slides in the Instagram carousel post, they are necessary for a sponsored post for a drug.

It is important for sponsored posts promoting any kind of medication to include basic product and safety information, so people understand the proper use cases and potential side effects.

You should be more worried about social media posts on drugs that lack such product and safety information!

Recommended : Did US FDA Just Ban Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines?!

Fact #3 : 300K Fans = 0.5% Of Her Followers!

I should point out that Lady Gaga had over 55.25 million followers on Instagram, on the day she posted the Pfizer Nurtec advertisement.

Even if Lady Gaga actually lost 300,000 followers on her Instagram account, it would only represent 0.54% of her total number of followers!

That would be a noteworthy dip no doubt, but it would not matter, because it also means that over 99.4% of her fans are not concerned enough unfollow her!

Fact #4 : Lady Gaga Actually Gained 33.9K Fans!

While people are claiming that Lady Gaga lost tens of thousands… or 300,000 fans / followers on her Instagram account, they offered zero evidence to back up those claims.

Instead of losing 300,000 fans, Lady Gaga actually gained 33.9K new fans in the 6 days following her Instagram post promoting the Pfizer Nurtec migraine drug.

As you can see from these stats of her Instagram account, Lady Gaga has consistently brought in thousands of additional followers every single day since that she posted the Nurtec advertisement.

Sure, some of her fans are calling her a sellout. But it is unknown if these unhappy Little Monsters actually unfollowed her because of that post. If she lost any fans over that post, they do not appear to be numerous enough to cause her total follower count to drop!

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

Fact #5 : Pfizer Was Upfront About Lady Gaga Partnership

Pfizer is no stranger to criticism, partly due to its chequered history, and partly because it’s a popular bogeyman for conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists.

Hence, Pfizer was similarly upfront about its partnership with Lady Gaga in promoting Nurtec. Of course, Pfizer labelled it as its effort to raise awareness about migraine:

June is Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, and in keeping with this year’s theme, “Educate Yourself, Educate Others,” Pfizer is partnering with Lady Gaga to raise awareness of this often-misunderstood disease.

Regardless of what one may think of Pfizer or Lady Gaga, they were both transparent about the promotional / sponsored post, and partnership.

Did Bill Gates Demand mRNA Vaccine For Livestock?!

Did Bill Gates demand that Australia force its farmers to inject their livestock with the mRNA vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Bill Gates Demanded mRNA Vaccine Mandate For Livestock!

People are sharing a Twitter post by Jamie McIntyre – the founder of Australian National Review, which claims that Australia is forcing farmers to inject their livestock with the mRNA vaccine after Bill Gates demanded it.

BREAKING: Australia has announced plans for mass injections of mRNA vaccines into livestock.

I suggest farmers hold out as long as they can as beef etc that isn’t injected will become very valuable. The Government intends forcing it

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

 

Truth : Bill Gates Did Not Demand mRNA Vaccine Mandate For Livestock!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and/or promoted by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Australia Has No mRNA Vaccine Plan For Livestock

The Australian government never announced any mRNA vaccination plan for livestock. There is also no mRNA vaccine mandate for livestock in Australia.

Jamie McIntyre certainly did not provide any evidence to back his claim that the Australian government announced a mass mRNA vaccination campaign for livestock.

Fact #2 : Livestock Are Not Being Given mRNA Vaccine

I should also point out that no mRNA vaccine has been developed for livestock anywhere in the world, never mind approved for mass vaccination.

Until such an mRNA vaccine is developed and tested, it cannot be approved, and there can be no mass vaccination of livestock.

Fact #3 : MLA Is Funding mRNA Vaccine Project

In May 2023, Meat & Livestock Australia – an independent company based in Sydney, announced that it was funding a project to produce and test mRNA vaccines to target a lumpy skin disease (LSD), our other exotic disease outbreaks.

This initiative does not have anything to do with Bill Gates. It is certainly not a requirement in Australia.

This project will develop a mRNA vaccine pipeline initially for LSD, but potentially for other emergency diseases. This will enable capacity for rapid mass production of a vaccine for LSD in the event of an outbreak.

No LSD vaccines are registered for use in Australia yet. While some killed vaccines exist overseas, the path to registration in Australia for traditionally-produced is longer than that of an mRNA vaccine.

Fact #4 : MLA mRNA Vaccine Has Not Been Approved

The MLA Program Manager for Animal Wellbeing, Michael Laurence, also pointed out that the LSD vaccine is currently undergoing tests until the end of the year. In other words – it has not yet been approved!

The LSD vaccine construct is now being tested for efficacy in animals. By the end of this year, we will know if this vaccine will work in ruminants

Recommended : Did four SIA pilots die suddenly from vaccine in May?!

Fact #5 : No Evidence Bill Gates Demanded mRNA Vaccine Mandate

Bill Gates visited Australia in January 2023, meeting with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese to discuss climate change, energy, and global health issues.

However, Bill Gates was more interested in preparing for the next pandemic, and fighting AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, than promoting non-existent mRNA livestock vaccines.

Mr Gates praised the prime minister for his “great partnership” on international health issues including the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

“As you say, the preparedness for the next pandemic is still a discussion that hasn’t been figured out,” he said. “Malaria in the long run, we want to do the same thing we’re doing with polio, which is eradicated regionally, and then eradicated all over the world.”

There is ZERO EVIDENCE that Bill Gates demanded any kind of mRNA vaccine mandate, whether for human beings or livestock.

Fact #6 : mRNA Vaccines Are Not Designed To Kill

The viral message suggests that the mRNA vaccines are designed to kill livestock, so farmers are forced to sell their land to “Globalist entities”.

That’s ridiculous, because any vaccine that proves to be deadly in any of its different trials would never be approved for use in people, or livestock.

Current mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, which are only meant for human use, have proven to be safe and effective for the vast majority of people who received them.

Fact #7 : No Evidence mRNA Vaccines Cause Infertility

Billions of mRNA vaccine doses have been administered to humans worldwide in the last 2.5 years, and they have never been shown to cause infertility.

Therefore, there is no reason to believe that mRNA vaccines for livestock would cause infertility, if they are ever developed.

Did CDC Quietly Recall Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did the US CDC just quietly recall the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, because it caused too many deaths and injuries?!

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

 

Claim : CDC Just Quietly Recalled Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are claiming that the US CDC just quietly recalled the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, because it caused too many deaths and injuries!

Died Suddenly : The checks have been cashed and the mission has been accomplished. They think they can begin to quietly roll back and that we will just forget.

Millions are injured, and millions are dead or dying slowly. Never forget what they have done.

Dr. Anastasia Maria Loupis : COVID Vaccine pulled from US – No CDC comment.

Andrew Bridgen : Just like the AstraZeneca vaccine, the Johnson and Johnson vaccine has been quietly withdrawn and stocks destroyed. Both of these products were actually a strand of DNA and used an Adenovirus vector to enter the cells. Where are the national media headlines?…

TaraBull : Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine has been pulled from the U.S. amid health concerns. Should Pfizer be next?

Recommended : Did US FDA Just Ban Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines?!

 

Truth : CDC Did Not Recall Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine Use Limited In May 2022

The Janssen COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson received an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) from the FDA on February 27, 2021.

However, the FDA later limited its use on 5 May 2022, because it was shown to introduce a small risk of developing thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) – the same problem affecting the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Fact #2 : Pfizer + Moderna Introduced Bivalent Vaccines In 2022

Thanks to evolutionary pressures, these variants and subvariants have evolved to evade the protections offered by both vaccines and natural immunity from a prior infection.

To combat these new variants, Pfizer and Moderna developed bivalent mRNA vaccines, which target both the ancestral SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as the newer and much more infectious Omicron variant.

Pfizer and Moderna announced, on 25 June and 8 June respectively, that they successfully tested their bivalent COVID-19 vaccines. With the introduction of bivalent vaccines, there really isn’t any use for older monovalent vaccines like the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

Recommended : Did Switzerland Just Stop All COVID-19 Vaccinations?!

Fact #3 : US CDC Did Not Recall Janssen COVID-19 Vaccines

Just to be clear – the US CDC did not recall the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson.

The US CDC only updated its Janssen COVID-19 vaccine information page on May 10, 2023 to inform the public that the vaccine is no longer available in the United States.

Claims that the CDC did not mention any reason for this decision are also false. The CDC specifically said that the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine is no longer available in the US, because all remaining stock expired on May 7, 2023!

Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is no longer available in the U.S. All remaining U.S. government stock of Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine expired May 7, 2023. Dispose of any remaining Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.

Fact #4 : US CDC Recommends Boosting With Bivalent Vaccines

The CDC recommended that those who received one or two doses of the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine should receive one dose of the new bivalent mRNA vaccine from Moderna or Pfizer.

People ages 18 years and older who received 1 or 2 Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine dose are recommended to receive 1 bivalent mRNA dose (Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech) at least 2 months after completion of the previous dose.

Truth : Paracetamol Tablets Do Not Contain Machupo Virus

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to scare people about the safety of medications, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Paracetamol = Acetaminophen

First, let me just point out that paracetamol is known as acetaminophen in the United States, Canada, Japan, Venezuela and Columbia.

You may better know them by their trade names – Panadol is the GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) trade name for paracetamol, while Tylenol is the trade name owned by McNeil, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, for the same drug – acetaminophen.

Many people now call all forms of paracetamol / acetaminophen “Panadol” or “Tylenol”, whether it comes from GSK or McNeil or another company. In other words :

Paracetamol = Panadol = Tylenol = Acetaminophen

Fact #2 : Paracetamol / Acetaminophen Do Not Contain Machupo Virus

To be clear – paracetamol or acetaminophen tablets do not contain the Machupo virus.

This was confirmed by many health authorities like the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) [pdf download]:

Seperti kebanyakan virus yang lain, virus ini tidak boleh hidup dalam persekitaran yang kering seperti tablet paracetamol.

Like many other viruses, this virus cannot live in a dry environment like paracetamol tablets.

The Singapore Health Sciences Authority (HSA) also confirmed that this is fake news:

The Health Sciences Authority (HSA) would like to inform members of the public that an “alert” that is circulating on social media regarding the transmission of “Machupo” virus through paracetamol tablets is a hoax. Its content is untrue.

HSA assures the public that the content of the hoax “alert” is inaccurate and is not a cause for concern. Anyone who receives the hoax “alert” should not forward it to others as the information is untrue.

Fact #3 : Machupo Virus Only Documented In South America

The Machupo virus is the informal name for Machupo mammarenavirus, an RNA virus of the Arenaviridae family that causes Bolivian haemorrhagic fever (BHF) – also known as black typhus or Ordog Fever.

First identified in 1963, the Machupo virus is deadly with a mortality rate of between 5% to 30%, with an average case-fatality rate of 22%.

However, the Machupo virus has only been documented in South America, mostly in Bolivia, where it is endemic in the regions of Mamoré and Iténez.

Fact #4 : Machupo Virus Is Transmitted By Infected Rodents

The Machupo virus is transmitted through infected rodents, specifically the large vesper mouse (Calomys callosus) that is indigenous to northern Bolivia. That’s why its spread is limited mainly to Bolivia.

In addition, the virus spreads through the saliva, faeces, and urine of infected rodents. Therefore, it is unlikely to spread through sealed packages of any medication, unless the contents were contaminated during production or packaging.

Fact #5 : This Is Old Fake News

Finally, this fake news isn’t even new. It was been circulating since mid-2017. It just keeps resurrecting and going “viral” every few years on WhatsApp and social media platforms.

Did Moderna CEO Know Pandemic Was Coming?!

Did Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel know that the COVID-19 pandemic was coming, long before it happened?!

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

 

Claim : Moderna CEO Knew COVID-19 Pandemic Was Coming!

People are sharing an article by The Expose (formerly Daily Expose), which claims that Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel knew that the COVID-19 pandemic was coming, long before it happened!

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

Before the Covid Pandemic was deployed Moderna’s CEO told staff: “We need to make a billion doses of Vaccines next year, there’s going to be a Pandemic”

Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel told his employees before it was declared that a pandemic was going to happen in 2020. At the same time, he told staff that Moderna would need to make a billion doses of vaccine the “next year.” He also confirmed that the CEO of GAVI knew about his pre-pandemic conversation with Moderna staff.

The conversation took place before the world knew about the covid “pandemic.” The World Health Organisation (“WHO”) only declared the “novel coronavirus (covid-19) outbreak a global pandemic” on 11 March 2020. “There are now more than 118,000 cases in 114 countries, and 4,291 people have lost their lives,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus claimed.

Truth : Moderna CEO Did Not Know COVID-19 Pandemic Was Coming!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS by The Expose (formerly Daily Expose), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Daily Expose Is A 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.

It was founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker, a mechanic from Lincolnshire, and is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation that were quoted by Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, and Chinese state media.

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:

Fact #2 : Moderna Did Not Make COVID-19 Vaccine In 2019

The claim that Moderna made 100,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in 2019 – before the pandemic happened, was an (intentional?) misunderstanding of what its CEO Stephane Bancel said at Davos 2023.

At that time, Bancel said that Moderna made 100,000 vaccine doses for the whole of 2019. However, it was the entire year’s production of vaccines for cancer, the Zika virus, a flu vaccine, and vaccines against other respiratory viruses.

Moderna spokesperson, Chris Ridley, later confirmed that Bancel was referring to the Moderna’s entire output in 2019, and not COVID-19 vaccines.

The 100,000 Bancel mentioned during the “State of the Pandemic” session referred to “total doses across our portfolio: Vaccines, rare diseases, cancer – the entire companies 2019 pipeline. 

Moderna had been developing mRNA vaccines since 2011 – long before the COVID-19 pandemic began. By 2015, it developed the first in-human dose of an mRNA flu vaccine candidate.

Fact #3 : SARS-CoV-2 Genome Only Released In January 2020

China announced its novel coronavirus outbreak on 31 December 2019, and only released the first draft of its genome on 11 January 2020.

So it would not be possible for Moderna to develop any COVID-19 vaccine in 2019, much less manufacture 100,000 doses.

It is also not possible for Stephane Bancel to predict that COVID-19 would become a pandemic when the world only found out about this virus on the last day of 2019.

Recommended : Is ICC launching Nuremberg 2 trials for COVID crimes?!

Fact #4 : Stephane Bancel Predicted COVID-19 Would Become Pandemic

At the State of the Pandemic panel, the host Sasha Vakulina asked Bancel about vaccine development, to which he responded:

So the great news versus 2020, where we are today is that we have manufacturing capacity. As Seth knows, when the pandemic happened, Moderna had made 100,000 dose in 2019 for the whole year.

And I remember walking into the office of my head of manufacturing and I say, ‘How about we make a billion dose next year?’ And he looked at me a bit funny and say, ‘What?’

And I say, ‘Yeah, we need to make a billion dose next year, there’s going to be a pandemic.’”

Bancel did not mention when this incident happened, but it appears to have happened in 2020, based on an August 2021 interview with Pictet Asset Management, where he said:

In 2019, we made fewer than 100,000 doses of vaccine. In the first quarter of 2021 alone, we shipped over 100 million doses and are now on a trajectory to produce 1 billion doses for this year.

It appears that Stephane Bancel predicted sometime in early 2020 that COVID-19 will end up becoming a pandemic, and wanted Moderna to ramp up its production capacity to deal with it.

Fact #5 : Many People Predicted COVID-19 Would Become Pandemic

While The Expose and many conspiracy theorists are suggesting that this is “proof” that the COVID-19 pandemic was “planned”, that is not true.

They (intentionally?) “forgot” that many scientists feared / predicted in early 2020 that the novel coronavirus outbreak in China could become a pandemic, after China failed to quell its outbreaks.

As early as 22 January 2020, WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus convened an Emergency Committee to assess whether the outbreak constituted a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).

Just 8 days later, he would be forced to reconvene another Emergency Committee meeting, and declare the outbreak a PHEIC, after over 7,800 cases were confirmed worldwide in 18 countries.

It was obvious, even in January 2020, that COVID-19 was potentially, if not likely, to become a pandemic, due to the rapid development and spread of outbreaks around the world.

Recommended : Did WHO Boss Dr. Tedros Refuse COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : No Evidence Moderna Had Contract To Manufacture 1 Billion Doses

There is no evidence Moderna had a contract of any kind to manufacture 1 billion vaccine doses.

Just because Stephane Bancel asked his head of manufacturing to ramp up production capacity to 1 billion vaccine doses does not mean Moderna already has a contract to manufacture 1 billion doses.

You don’t have to be a pharmaceutical CEO to assume that, if COVID-19 becomes a pandemic, there would be a huge demand for a vaccine. Many billions of doses would be required.

After all – there were over 7.7 billion people in the world at the end of 2019! Even if Moderna wins just 10% of the vaccine contracts, it would need to produce 1.54 billion doses!

Just to give you a little context – Pfizer, which is a more established pharmaceutical company, delivered over 3 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses in 2021, and would deliver over 4 billion doses in 2022.

Jordon Trishton Walker on Directed Evolution : What are the Facts?

Jordon Trishton Walker has gone viral for claiming that Pfizer is thinking of mutating COVID-19 using Directed Evolution!

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

 

Jordon Trishton Walker : Pfizer is thinking of mutating COVID-19 using Directed Evolution!

Project Veritas recently released a “sting” video, in which they appeared to have entrapped Jordon Trishton Walker, who was identified as the Pfizer Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning.

In that viral video, Jordon (JTW) who was trying to impress his Tinder date – an undercover Project Veritas journalist (PV), claimed that Pfizer was thinking of mutating the COVID-19 virus using Directed Evolution.

When his Tinder date / undercover Project Veritas journalist suggested that it was Gain-of-Function, Jordon insisted that Directed Evolution was different from Gain-of-Function.

Here is a partial transcript from the video. For the full transcript, please see our earlier article.

PV : Pfizer ultimately is thinking about mutating COVID?

JTW : Well, that is not what we say to the public. No.
JTW : Don’t tell anyone this by the way, you have to promise you won’t tell anyone.
JTW : We’re exploring like – you know how the virus keeps mutating?
JTW : Well one of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it ourselves so we could- we could create preemptively develop new vaccines, right? So we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine, no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating fucking viruses.

PV : It [mutating COVID] sounds like Gain-of-Function to me.

JTW : I don’t know, it’s a little bit different. I think it’s different. It’s like, this, it’s definitely not Gain-of-Function.

PV : It sounds like it is, I mean, it’s okay.

JTW : No no no, but directed evolution is very different.
JTW : Well you’re not supposed to do Gain-of-Function research with the viruses.
JTW : They’d rather we not, but we do these selected structure mutations to try to see if we can make them more potent.

Jordon Trishton Walker on Directed Evolution : What are the Facts?

Anti-vaccination activists are excitedly sharing the Project Veritas video of Jordon Trishton Walker as evidence that Pfizer was caught mutating the COVID-19 virus to develop new vaccines.

But the truth is – if you actually go through the Project Veritas video, it was really a nothingburger on Pfizer, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Project Veritas Is Infamous For Misinformation

Project Veritas is infamous for posting misinformation, and heavily edited videos that either cast a misleading angle on a story, or push misinformation.

In 2020, Project Veritas claimed that US Representative Ilhan Omar was linked to a “cash for ballots voter fraud scheme”, which turned out to be baseless.

In February 2021, Project Veritas posted a video of Mark Zuckerberg allegedly warning Facebook staff about the risks of mRNA vaccines, even though Zuckerberg changed his opinions three months earlier after asking Dr. Anthony Fauci to clarify the issue in a November 2020 livestream.

In October 2021, Project Veritas released a video of Pfizer scientist Nick Karl saying that natural immunity is better than vaccination, when in fact Nicholas Karl is a biochemist who was not involved in the development or manufacture of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : His Job Does Not Involve Vaccine Development

While many people are obsessed in proving that Jordon Trishton Walker is really a Pfizer director of mRNA research, and not a consultant on loan / secondment from the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), it really does not matter.

Pfizer has a job position called Director, Research and Development and mRNA Scientific Strategy, which is close enough to the super-long title Jordon Trishton Walker is said to hold.

Ironically, that post is at the Pfizer Pearl River R&D facility near New York – the same place Nicholas Karl, the biochemist who got punked by Project Veritas in 2021 also worked at!

The job description, however, clearly shows that the director of R&D and mRNA Scientific Strategy is an office executive mainly dealing with business development.

Drive select projects within WRDM (Worldwide Research, Development and Medical) to deliver business critical insights to Pfizer leaders, such as the Executive Leadership Team, in partnership with internal and external stakeholders. These projects may include:

  • Leading select operational initiatives across Pfizer therapeutic areas, including delivering key aspects of the Corporate Strategic Plan and representing WRDM on corporate project teams.
  • Developing the strategic vision for mRNA technology at Pfizer and working cross-functionally with key stakeholders, such as Business Development, to enable decision-making on critical topics and ensure successful execution of the strategy. Identifying and prioritizing opportunities to deliver innovative medicines across Pfizer’s portfolio and advancing these priorities in collaboration with Pfizer’s Chief Scientific Officers and other WRDM leaders.
  • Maximizing the effectiveness of the President of WRDM on key internal and external deliverables.

Fact #3 : Jordon Walker Never Said Pfizer Was Mutating COVID-19 Virus

If you watch the Project Veritas video or read the transcript carefully, you will realise that Jordon Trishton Walker never said that Pfizer was mutating the COVID-19 virus. He only said that it was “a thought that came up” in one of the meetings.

… it was a thought that came up in a meeting and we were like, why do we not — it was like, we’re going to consider that with more discussions.

Fact #4 : Viruses Are Already Mutating Globally

It seems silly for Pfizer to intentionally infect monkeys to mutate the COVID-19 virus, to try and predict the next variant, when the virus is mutating rapidly globally – every infected person is literally a mutation factory!

Infecting monkeys also may not deliver the same variants as viruses that mutate in human beings, and may not serve as a good predictor of future variants.

Therefore, it would be much cheaper and certainly more accurate for Pfizer scientists to simply collect samples of new variants that are created every few months!

Fact #5 : Pfizer Modifying COVID-19 To Test PAXLOVID

Pfizer responded to the claims on January 27, 2023, stating that it has not conducted gain-of-function or directed evolution research when it came to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (marketed as COMIRNATY).

However, Pfizer stated that it does modify the COVID-19 virus to produce the spike protein of the new variants identified by health authorities, to test whether its vaccine would continue to work against the new variants.

If any gain-of-function or directed evolution work was being done on the COVID-19 virus, Pfizer was only doing it to test if the virus can evade nirmatrelvir – the patented half of the PAXLOVID oral medication it developed.

Read more : Pfizer denies Gain of Function, Directed Evolution claims!

Fact #6 : Directed Evolution Cannot Predict Dominant Mutation

Directed evolution is a form of protein engineering that uses mutagenesis and the natural selection process to create proteins with desired characteristics.

While the mutagenesis process it uses can create many variants, directed evolution cannot predict which variants will end up becoming dominant.

That’s why it’s called directed evolution – the scientists direct the evolution of a gene to produce proteins they want, not predict what proteins will become “dominant”.

Jordon himself pointed out to the Project Veritas journalist that even if Pfizer tries mutating the virus, it may not predict future variants.

JTW : Yeah, if it works.

PV : What do you mean if it works?

JTW : Because some of the times there are mutations that pop up that we are not prepared for like the delta and omicron and things like that, so…

Fact #6 : mRNA Technology Allows For Quick Vaccine Development

In any case, it doesn’t make much sense for Pfizer to try and “predict” the next variant, because the mRNA technology allows for very quick vaccine development.

Moderna, for example, took only TWO DAYS to design its mRNA vaccine after Chinese scientists released the SARS-CoV-2 virus genome, and only 26 days to create its first batch of vaccines.

In other words – Pfizer, or rather BioNTech scientists, only need the genomic data of the latest variant to create a new vaccine. There is no real need to predict the next variant, because developing a new vaccine with mRNA technology is so quick!

Why mRNA vaccines take so long to get to market has more to do with testing and red tape, than actually creating them!

Pfizer denies Gain of Function, Directed Evolution claim!

In response to the viral Project Veritas video, Pfizer has publicly denied conducting any Gain of Function, or Directed Evolution research in developing their COVID-19 vaccine!

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

Is Pfizer Mutating COVID-19 Virus Using Gain of Function / Directed Evolution?!

Project Veritas recently released a viral “sting” video involving Jordon Trishton Walker, who was identified as the Pfizer Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning.

In that viral video, short clips were edited to show Jordon Trishton Walker telling a Project Veritas journalist that Pfizer is mutating the COVID-19 virus to continue profiting from vaccines!

Project Veritas also edited their blurbs to make it sound like Jordon was admitting that the COVID-19 virus was created in Wuhan, China.

BREAKING: @Pfizer Exploring “Mutating” COVID-19 Virus For New Vaccines

“Don’t tell anyone this… There is a risk… have to be very controlled to make sure this virus you mutate doesn’t create something… the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest”.

Pfizer Denies Gain of Function, Directed Evolution Claims!

At 8 PM on Friday, January 27, 2023, Pfizer issued a public statement to address the gain of function and directed evolution claims made in the Project Veritas video.

The statement did not address whether Jordon Trishton Walker is a Pfizer employee, or a consultant on secondment from the Boston Consulting Group.

Instead, the statement directly refutes the allegations that Pfizer conducted gain of function, or directed evolution research in developing its COVID-19 vaccine. Here is a quick summary of what Pfizer said:

Research Involving Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine

  • Pfizer has not conducted gain of function research in the ongoing development of its COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Pfizer has not conducted directed evolution research in the ongoing development of its COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Working with partners (like BioNTech), Pfizer has modified the original SARS-CoV-2 virus so it produces the spike protein from new variants of concern that have been identified by public health authorities, to test their immune escape potential against antibodies produced by its COVID-19 vaccine antibodies.

This matches up with what Jordon Trishton Walker actually said in the viral Project Veritas video – Pfizer did not actually conduct any gain-of-function, or directed evolution research.

… it was a thought that came up in a meeting and we were like, why do we not — it was like, we’re going to consider that with more discussions.

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

Research Involving Pfizer PAXLOVID

  • Pfizer has also performed laboratory (in vitro) work to identify potential mutations that can cause resistance to nirmatrelvir – one of the two antiviral components in its PAXLOVID oral treatment for COVID-19.
  • Most of this work was conducted using computer simulations, or mutations of the main protease – an enzyme the virus uses to breaks down proteins.
  • However, Pfizer may engineer the SARS-CoV-2 virus to allow the assessment of antiviral activity in cells.
  • These in vitro resistance selection experiments are conducted in cells incubated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and nirmatrelvir in a secure Biosafety Level 3 (BSL3) laboratory, to assess whether the main protease enzyme can mutate to become resistant to nirmatrelvir.

Pfizer appears to be admitting that it does engineer the COVID-19 virus, but clarifying that it was not done to create new vaccines. Rather, such research is being done to determine if PAXLOVID may potentially fail to work against a new variant.

Pfizer does not state whether they are engineering SARS-CoV-2 through gain-of-function or directed evolution, but such research is being conducted to determine whether the virus can mutate to become resistant to nirmatrelvir, which is the new protease inhibitor they developed.

However, as I pointed out in my earlier article, Pfizer does not actually need to perform such research to develop new COVID-19 vaccines using mRNA technology.

Official Pfizer Statement On Gain of Function, Directed Evolution Claims

Here is the official Pfizer statement on the gain of function and directed evolution claims made in the Project Veritas video.

New York, N.Y., January 27, 2023 – Allegations have recently been made related to gain of function and directed evolution research at Pfizer and the company would like to set the record straight.

In the ongoing development of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Pfizer has not conducted gain of function or directed evolution research. Working with collaborators, we have conducted research where the original SARS-CoV-2 virus has been used to express the spike protein from new variants of concern. This work is undertaken once a new variant of concern has been identified by public health authorities. This research provides a way for us to rapidly assess the ability of an existing vaccine to induce antibodies that neutralize a newly identified variant of concern. We then make this data available through peer reviewed scientific journals and use it as one of the steps to determine whether a vaccine update is required.

In addition, to meet U.S. and global regulatory requirements for our oral treatment, PAXLOVID™, Pfizer undertakes in vitro work (e.g., in a laboratory culture dish) to identify potential resistance mutations to nirmatrelvir, one of PAXLOVID’s two components. With a naturally evolving virus, it is important to routinely assess the activity of an antiviral. Most of this work is conducted using computer simulations or mutations of the main protease–a non-infectious part of the virus. In a limited number of cases when a full virus does not contain any known gain of function mutations, such virus may be engineered to enable the assessment of antiviral activity in cells. In addition, in vitro resistance selection experiments are undertaken in cells incubated with SARS-CoV-2 and nirmatrelvir in our secure Biosafety level 3 (BSL3) laboratory to assess whether the main protease can mutate to yield resistant strains of the virus. It is important to note that these studies are required by U.S. and global regulators for all antiviral products and are carried out by many companies and academic institutions in the U.S. and around the world.

Fact-based information rooted in sound science is vitally important to overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic and Pfizer remains committed to transparency and helping alleviate the devastating burden of this disease.

Did Project Veritas Show Pfizer Mutating COVID-19?!

Did a viral Project Veritas video show that Pfizer is mutating the COVID-19 virus to create new vaccines through Directed Evolution?!

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

 

Project Veritas : Pfizer Mutating COVID-19 Virus For New Vaccines!

Project Veritas released another “sting” video involving Jordon Trishton Walker, who was identified as the Pfizer Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning.

In that viral video, short clips were edited to show Jordon (JTW) telling a Project Veritas journalist (PV) that Pfizer is mutating the COVID-19 virus to try and preemptively develop new vaccines.

Here is a transcript from the video, but it is very long as Project Veritas appeared to have been edited to repeat parts of the video. So please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts.

PV : Pfizer ultimately is thinking about mutating COVID?

JTW : Well, that is not what we say to the public. No.

Project Veritas Did Not Show Pfizer Mutating COVID-19 Virus!

Anti-vaccination activists are excitedly sharing the Project Veritas video as evidence that Pfizer was caught mutating the COVID-19 virus to develop new vaccines.

But the truth is – if you actually go through the Project Veritas video, it was really a nothingburger on Pfizer, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #2 : Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Created By BioNTech

What many people often forget is that the COMIRNATY mRNA vaccine was not created by Pfizer, but a German company called BioNTech, helmed by Uğur Şahin and Özlem Türeci – Germans of Turkish descent.

Pfizer is primarily the US manufacturing and testing partner for the BioNTech BNT162b2 vaccine, while in China, that would be Fosun Pharma.

Why this is important is because the bulk of the mRNA vaccine research work is done by BioNTech, not Pfizer or Fosun Pharma.

So it is unlikely that Jordon Trishton Walker would actually be involved in the development of any mRNA vaccine, even if he is the Pfizer Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning.

Drive select projects within WRDM (Worldwide Research, Development and Medical) to deliver business critical insights to Pfizer leaders, such as the Executive Leadership Team, in partnership with internal and external stakeholders. These projects may include:

  • Leading select operational initiatives across Pfizer therapeutic areas, including delivering key aspects of the Corporate Strategic Plan and representing WRDM on corporate project teams.
  • Developing the strategic vision for mRNA technology at Pfizer and working cross-functionally with key stakeholders, such as Business Development, to enable decision-making on critical topics and ensure successful execution of the strategy. Identifying and prioritizing opportunities to deliver innovative medicines across Pfizer’s portfolio and advancing these priorities in collaboration with Pfizer’s Chief Scientific Officers and other WRDM leaders.
  • Maximizing the effectiveness of the President of WRDM on key internal and external deliverables.

Fact #4 : Jordon Walker Never Said Pfizer Was Mutating COVID-19 Virus

If you watch the Project Veritas video or read the transcript above carefully, you will realise that Jordon Trishton Walker never said that Pfizer was mutating the COVID-19 virus. He only said that it was “a thought that came up” in one of the meetings.

… it was a thought that came up in a meeting and we were like, why do we not — it was like, we’re going to consider that with more discussions.

Fact #5 : Viruses Are Already Mutating Globally

It seems silly for Pfizer to intentionally infect monkeys to mutate the COVID-19 virus, to try and predict the next variant, when the virus is mutating rapidly globally – every infected person is literally a mutation factory!

Infecting monkeys also may not deliver the same variants as viruses that mutate in human beings, and may not serve as a good predictor of future variants.

Therefore, it would be much cheaper and certainly more accurate for Pfizer scientists to simply collect samples of new variants that are created every few months!

Fact #6 : Directed Evolution Cannot Predict Dominant Mutation

Directed evolution is a form of protein engineering that uses mutagenesis and the natural selection process to create proteins with desired characteristics.

While the mutagenesis process it uses can create many variants, directed evolution cannot predict which variants will end up becoming dominant.

That’s why it’s called directed evolution – the scientists direct the evolution of a gene to produce proteins they want, not predict what proteins will become “dominant”.

Jordon himself pointed out to the Project Veritas journalist that even if Pfizer tries mutating the virus, it may not predict future variants.

JTW : Yeah, if it works.

PV : What do you mean if it works?

JTW : Because some of the times there are mutations that pop up that we are not prepared for like the delta and omicron and things like that, so…

Fact #7 : mRNA Technology Allows For Quick Vaccine Development

In any case, it doesn’t make much sense for Pfizer to try and “predict” the next variant, because the mRNA technology allows for very quick vaccine development.

Moderna, for example, took only TWO DAYS to design its mRNA vaccine after Chinese scientists released the SARS-CoV-2 virus genome, and only 26 days to create its first batch of vaccines.

In other words – Pfizer, or rather BioNTech scientists, only need the genomic data of the latest variant to create a new vaccine. There is no real need to predict the next variant, because developing a new vaccine with mRNA technology is so quick!

Why mRNA vaccines take so long to get to market has more to do with testing and red tape, than actually creating them!

Why Pfizer CEO Ignored Questions On Transmission!

A video of Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla ignoring questions on COVID-19 vaccines preventing transmission has gone viral.

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

 

Viral Video : Pfizer CEO Ignores Questions On Transmission!

A video of Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla ignoring questions on COVID-19 vaccines preventing transmission has gone viral.

Here is a rough transcript of what was said. It’s really long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts.

Ezra Levant : Mr. Bourla, can I ask you – when did you know the vaccines did not stop transmission? How long did you know that before saying it publicly?

Albert Bourla : Thank you very much.

Ezra Levant : To that question, I mean, we now know that the vaccines didn’t stop transmission, but why did you keep it secret?

Ezra Levant : You said it was 100% effective, then 90%, then 80%, then 70%, but we now know that the vaccines do not stop transmission. Why do you keep that secret?

Albert Bourla : Have a nice day.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Why Pfizer CEO Ignored Questions On Transmission!

This is yet another example of ANTI-VACCINE PROPAGANDA created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the facts you need to know.

Fact #1 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Never Meant To Stop Transmission

The COVID-19 vaccines, whether from Pfizer or any other pharmaceutical company, were designed to prevent hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

Prevention of transmission would have been a nice bonus, but it was never the primary goal of any COVID-19 vaccine. And how do we know that?

Simple – there were only three endpoints in the Phase 3 trials of COVID-19 vaccines:

  • protection against symptomatic infection
  • protection against severe disease
  • protection against death

All vaccines – whether Pfizer or otherwise – were never designed or required to prevent transmission of COVID-19.

That was precisely what all COVID-19 vaccines aimed for, and that was what all Phase 3 trial results show. Here is a table I created from the initial Phase 3 trials of the major vaccines in March 2021:

COVID-19 Vaccine Protection Against
Symptomatic
Infection
Severe
Disease
Death
Pfizer Comirnaty 95.0% 100% 100%
Gamaleya Sputnik V 91.6% 100% 100%
Moderna mRNA-1273 94.1% 100% 100%
AstraZeneca AZD1222 62% ~ 90% 100% 100%
Sinopharm BBIBP-CorV 79% ~ 86% 90% 100%
Sinovac Biotech 50.65% 83.7% 100%
J&J Janssen COVID-19 66.0% 85% 100%
CanSino Biologics 65.7% 90.98% 100%

Fact #2 : Pfizer CEO Did Not Claim COVID-19 Vaccine Prevent Transmission

On April 1, 2021, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla posted about a small South African trial in which 800 people vaccinated with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine did not get infected.

Although he could have been much clearer, he did not say that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine prevents transmission. He later clarified that it only shows that the vaccine produced a “robust neutralising antibody response” to a specific variant.

800 participants enrolled in South Africa with 0 cases of #COVID19 observed in the vaccinated group. Of the cases observed the majority were confirmed to be of the B.1.351 lineage, the prevalent strain in South Africa.

These data support previous results from immunogenicity studies demonstrating a robust neutralizing antibody response to the B.1.351 variant.

Recommended : Does Pfizer CEO aim to cut world population by 50%?

Fact #3 : It Is Quite Impossible To Prevent Transmission Of COVID-19

Anti-vaccination activists are harping on the prevention of transmission, because it’s a red herring – they know that it is quite impossible to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is primarily a respiratory virus that spreads by droplets and aerosols, but it is highly contagious, and can infect people through their eyes and mouths, and even through fomites (contaminated surfaces) – albeit, this is relatively rare.

The point is – vaccines are not force fields that repel the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They are basically training camps that teach our own immune system how to identify the virus, so they can make their own antibodies against it.

Even in a fully-vaccinated person, the antibodies only work after the virus enters the bloodstream. The antibodies cannot block or repel the virus, which is why the vaccine trials looked at preventing “symptomatic infections” and not preventing “infections”.

Similarly, the immune systems of vaccinated people are capable of preventing the virus from causing serious harm, but they can only partially block transmission by preventing the virus from replicating as much as it would normally be capable of.

The immune systems of vaccinated people, unfortunately, cannot do anything about virus particles that get inhaled into the lungs and then exhaled into the environment in respiratory droplets and aerosols.

I should point out that “natural immunity” from a prior COVID-19 infection cannot block or prevent transmission of COVID-19 either. So why should anyone insist that vaccines, whether Pfizer or otherwise, must prevent transmission of COVID-19?

Recommended : Why COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy Does NOT Matter!

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Effective

Regardless of what the two men who questioned Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla may claim, the truth is – COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be effective in preventing severe disease and death from COVID-19 infections.

That is how most of the world was able to reopen without COVID-infected patients swamping hospitals and ICUs, as we saw throughout 2020 and early 2021.

Yes, fully-vaccinated people are still getting infected by COVID-19, but they no longer need to be hospitalised, and most of them no longer die from a COVID-19 infection.

Again, COVID-19 vaccines were designed to prevent severe illness and death, not transmission or infection. They have done an excellent job in those aspects.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy Changes Against Variants

Like the influenza virus, the SARS-CoV-2 virus mutates rapidly – every infected person is literally a virus factory that is capable of producing new variants.

New virus variants may differ enough that the antibodies created by our own immune system may not attach to them properly.

This “immune escape” problem exists for people who obtained “natural immunity” through a COVID-19 infection, as much as those who are fully-vaccinated.

Each new variant is like an army that has learned to adapt to the battlefield, which is why the vaccines’ efficacy appear to “drop” with each variant.

It does not mean the vaccines do not work as advertised. Those vaccines still maintain the same efficacy against the ancestral COVID-19 virus that they were all tested against. It’s just that the antibodies they trigger may be less capable of attaching properly to the newer variants.

Recommended : Was Pfizer CEO Arrested For Fraud In #PfizerGate?

Fact #6 : Protection From Natural Immunity Is Reduced Against Variants Too

Antibodies created by our immune system from a prior COVID-19 infection – the “natural immunity” promoted by anti-vaccination activists, are also less effective against new variants.

That’s why people with natural immunity can and still do get infected again and again with new variants of COVID-19.

That is why it is important to develop new versions of the vaccines to deal with new COVID-19 variants that develop over time.

Sure, you can improve your immunity by repeatedly getting infected by new variants of COVID-19, but why not give your immune system a head start by getting the improved bivalent vaccines that are designed to better handle the Omicron variants?

Did US Military Hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel?!

Did the US military just hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel at their Guantanamo Bay naval base?!

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

 

Claim : US Military Hanged Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel To Death!

On 18 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that the US Navy just hanged Moderna CEO, Stéphane Bancel at its Guantanamo Bay naval base!

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Moderna CEO and eugenicist Stéphane Bancel lost his life Friday afternoon after a hangman for the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate Generals Corp’s put a noose around his neck and flipped a switch that opened a swinging door beneath the pharmaceutical mogul’s feet.

Bancel’s death was a quiet affair. Vice Adm. Darse E. Crandall did not attend the execution, nor did the cadre of military of brass that had been present at earlier hangings. Instead, Bradley Earl, Command Master Chief, JAG Law Program Judge Advocate General’s Corps, oversaw the execution.

 

Truth : US Military Did NOT Hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel!

The truth is – this is just another FAKE STORY created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Everything that Real Raw News posts must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

This disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news that will go viral, and generate him money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Stephane Bancel’s Arrest

Only Real Raw News has published his fantastical account of US special forces arresting Stéphane Bancel outside a DC restaurant. That’s because Michael Baxter / Tiffin made it up.

Naturally, there is no news from any legitimate news outlet, or the US military, about Stephane Bancel’s arrest sentencing and hanging in Gitmo.

How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story”?

Read more : Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Arrested For Vaccine Fraud?

A March 2018 screenshot of Michael Tuffin, who goes by the pseudonym Michael Baxter

Fact #3 : Moderna Is A Public-Listed Company

Moderna is a public-listed company, and is traded on the Nasdaq as MRNA. Its shareholders would have to be informed if their company CEO was really arrested, and sentenced to death.

It is NOT POSSIBLE to keep quiet and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s not even legal to cover up such an event from the shareholders.

Fact #4 : Stéphane Bancel + Moderna Issued A Press Statement

On Thursday, November 16, 2022 – one day after Real Raw News claimed Stephane Bancel was sentenced to death, Moderna announced positive results for its two bivalent vaccines targeting the Omicron variant of COVID-19 – mRNA-1273.214, and mRNA-1273.222.

Instead of being incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay, as Michael Baxter/Tiffin claimed, Stephane Bancel announced from Cambridge, Massachusetts that:

We are pleased to see that both of our bivalent booster vaccine candidates offer superior protection against Omicron BA.4/BA.5 variants compared to our original booster, which is encouraging given COVID-19 remains a leading cause of hospitalisation and death globally. In addition, the superior response against Omicron persisted for at least three months after the mRNA-1273.214 booster.

Only Michael Baxter / Tiffin can persist with such a stupid lie, and only his idiotic fans will continue to believe his fake stories.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?

Fact #5 : Only Enemy Combatants Are Detained At Gitmo

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that a US military tribunal in Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay) convicted Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death.

The Guantanamo Bay prison is only used to detain high-value enemy combatants. Stephane Bancel is not an enemy combatant by any military or legal definition, and would never be detained there.

If Stephane Bancel really committed a crime in the United States, he would have been brought to trial in an American court.

Fact #6 : US Military Tribunals Are Only For Foreign Combatants

It is also stupid for Real Raw News to claim that Bancel was trialed and convicted as an enemy combatant in a military tribunal, when he is a French civilian.

Military tribunals in the United States can only be conducted for members of enemy forces during wartime. The United States is not at war with France.

Needless to say – Stephane Bancel is also not in the French military, so even if he was arrested, there is no way he would be tried in a military tribunal.

Fact #7 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

It is also hilarious that Real Raw News readers actually believe the bullshit that someone sentenced to death would be executed just days later.

That may be possible in a country like North Korea, but certainly not in the United States

Death row inmates in the United States wait an average of 178 months – about 15 years after their sentencing, before they are executed.

In fact, none of the six Gitmo inmates charged with capital crime in the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and the attack on USS Cole in 2000, have actually been trialled to date, never mind convicted and sentenced to death.

Fact #8 : US Military Has Not Executed Anyone Since 1961

Even though the US military has killed many combatants intentionally, and civilians as collateral damage, they have not executed prisoners since 1961.

There are four US military inmates on death row, but none of them have been executed so far.

Fact #9 : US Military Cannot Execute Anyone By Hanging

The US military can no longer execute anyone by hanging. In fact, the last US military execution by hanging occurred in 1961 – their last execution ever.

If the US military has to execute anyone, only lethal injection is allowed. Death by hanging is no longer allowed.

Everything that Real Raw News posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS.

Pfizer Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine Coming To Malaysia!

Malaysia has ordered the Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine, which will arrive later this month!

 

Pfizer Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine Coming To Malaysia!

On 31 October 2022, Malaysia Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that the Ministry of Health (KKM) placed orders for the new Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine.

There is no additional cost, as Malaysia is amending its existing order for the Pfizer vaccine, to the newer bivalent vaccine. The new Pfizer bivalent vaccine is expected to arrive in Malaysia later this month.

The original vaccine is effective against Omicron and the XBB (sub-variant). However, I would like to inform you that Malaysia has placed orders for the bivalent vaccine from Pfizer.

The bivalent vaccine targets both the original SARS-CoV-2 virus, as well as the newer Omicron subvariants like BA.4 and BA.5.

However, people who are in the high-risk categories are advised to get their booster dose, instead of waiting for the Pfizer bivalent vaccine to arrive.

He also encouraged those travelling overseas for work or holidays, to get their booster dose.

Malaysia is recording a small wave of XBB subvariant infections, which had hit Singapore earlier.

Read more : Singapore Advice On Omicron XBB Variant?!

 

Pfizer Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine : A Quick Primer!

Pfizer and BioNTech tested both an Omicron-specific monovalent vaccine, as well as a bivalent mix like Moderna. They also tested them in both the standard 30 µg dose, and a higher 60 µg dose.

The Omicron-only booster dose offered the strongest immune response against the Omicron variant – 2X to 3X higher than the original COMIRNATY vaccine.

Their bivalent booster dose candidate, on the other hand, offered 1.5X to 2X higher antibody levels against the Omicro variant than the original COMIRNATY vaccine.

However, most health authorities prefer the bivalent version as it will boost protection against the original virus, as well as the Omicron variant at the same time.

Pfizer Vaccine Type GMR
(vs. Omicron)
60 µg Monovalent 3.15
30 µg Monovalent 2.23
60 µg Bivalent 1.97
30 µg Bivalent 1.56
30 µg Original Vaccine Baseline

One month after administration, both monovalent and bivalent Pfizer vaccine candidates offered significantly higher neutralising antibodies against the Omicron BA.1 variant.

Pfizer Vaccine Type GMT
(vs. Omicron)
60 µg Monovalent 19.6X
30 µg Monovalent 13.5X
60 µg Bivalent 10.9X
30 µg Bivalent 9.1X
Without Booster Baseline

Pfizer also said that both vaccine candidates demonstrated a favourable safety and tolerability profile, similar to the original Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

Indonesia Bans Sale Of Cough Syrups + Liquid Meds!

Indonesia has stopped the sale of all medical and cough syrups, and liquid medication after 99 children died, amidst an unexplained spike in acute kidney injuries.

 

Indonesia Bans Sale Of Cough Syrups + Liquid Meds!

On Thursday, October 20, 2022, Indonesia banned the sale of all syrup and liquid medication, including cough syrups.

This decision follows the deaths of 99 children, and 206 cases of acute kidney injuries in children, mostly under 6 years of age.

As a precaution, the ministry has asked health workers in health facilities not to prescribe liquid medicine or syrup temporarily.

We also ask that drug stores temporarily stop all sales of non-prescription liquid medicine or syrup until our investigations are completed.

– Indonesia Health Ministry spokesperson Mohammad Syahril

Indonesia Ban Of Cough Syrups + Liquid Meds : What’s Going On?!

Just a week ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) linked four cough syrups made in India to the deaths of more than 60 children who suffered acute kidney failure in The Gambia, West Africa.

WHO suspected that the four cough syrups made by Maiden Pharmaceuticals Limited of India, contained “unacceptable amounts” of diethylene glycol and ethylene glycol, which can damage the brain, lungs, liver and kidneys.

India’s Central Drugs Standard Control Organizatio immediately shut down Maiden Pharmaceuticals’ factory in New Delhi where these cough syrups were made.

In view of the seriousness of the contraventions observed during the investigation and its potential risk to the quality, safety and efficacy of the drugs being produced, all the manufacturing activities of the firm (are) being stopped with immediate effect.

The cough syrups that killed so many children in The Gambia though were not sold in Indonesia, according to the Indonesian food and drugs agency.

However, Indonesian Health Ministry Budi Gunadi Sadikin said today (Thursday, October 20) that the same toxic substances – diethylene glycol and ethylene glycol – were detected in syrups found in the homes of some of the affected children.

He added that the number of acute kidney failure cases could be higher than reported, so his health ministry was taking the conservative approach by banning the sale of all medical syrups and liquid medication.

Can AstraZeneca Vaccine Give You Monkeypox?!

Can the AstraZeneca vaccine give you monkeypox? Is it responsible for the current monkeypox outbreak?

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

 

Claim : AstraZeneca Vaccine Can Give You Monkeypox!

In recent weeks, people have sharing photos of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine leaflet, claiming that it is evidence that the AstraZeneca vaccine is responsible for the current monkeypox outbreak.

They are highlighting the portion of the vaccine leaflet that says that it contains a “Recombinant, replication-deficient chimpanzee adenovirus vector encoding the SARS-CoV-2 Spike glycoprotein.

They believe that it is this virus that causes monkeypox, and that the AstraZeneca vaccine is responsible for spreading monkeypox to vaccinated people.

Here are some of the comments that accompany these viral posts :

Who is surprised that after millions of people have been injected with genetically modified chimp virus, there is now an outbreak of monkeypox?

“The AstraZeneca vaccine uses a chimpanzee adenovirus vaccine vector” Makes you wonder doesn’t it.🤔🤔🤔🤔

More monkey business #AstraZeneca #monkeypox

 

Truth : AstraZeneca Vaccine Cannot Give You Monkeypox!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Adenovirus Used In AstraZeneca Vaccine Cannot Replicate

The AstraZeneca Vaxzevria vaccine, codenamed AZD1222, uses a chimpanzee adenovirus to “teach” some of our cells to produce the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins to trigger an immune response.

The chimpanzee adenovirus used in the vaccine – ChAdOx1 – had already been modified from the original ChAd virus serotype Y25 to prevent replication. Therefore, the virus cannot replicate, and is incapable of producing any disease in human beings.

Fact #2 : Monkeypox Is Not Caused By Chimpanzee Adenovirus

Monkeypox is caused by the monkeypox virus, which is completely different from the chimpanzee adenovirus.

The monkeypox virus is a double-stranded DNA virus from the Orthopoxvirus genus in the Poxviridae family. It is closely related to the smallpox virus (variola).

The chimpanzee adenovirus is also a double-stranded DNA virus, but it is from the Mastadenovirus genus in the Adenoviridae family. It is similar to the adenoviruses that cause the common flu in human beings.

These two viruses are as different as cats and dogs. Cats and dogs may be mammals, but as you can tell – they are quite different animals!

Read more : Monkeypox : What You Must Know About This Viral Infection!

Fact #3 : Monkeypox Is A Misnomer

Monkeypox was first identified and named in 1958, when it was identified in laboratory monkeys in Copenhagen, Denmark.

However, the name monkeypox is a misnomer, as it is not very common in monkeys. Neither did it originate in monkeys, nor does it spread only through monkeys.

It is known to spread through prairie dogs, dormice, squirrels, and non-human primates. It may possibly also spread through rabbits, rats and mice.

Fact #4 : Chimpanzees Are Not Monkeys

Not that it matters, but you should know that chimpanzees and monkeys are of different species.

Chimpanzees and monkeys are both primates, but their last common ancestor dates back some 30 million years ago.

Monkeys are simians; while chimpanzees are great apes, and are genetically closest to human beings. .

Fact #5 : Current Monkeypox Outbreak Only Started In May 2022

The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine was approved for use in December 2020, and has been administered globally to billions of people since then.

If it can cause monkeypox, it would have resulted in massive monkeypox outbreaks within weeks, if not days, of being administered.

Yet the current monkeypox outbreak only started in May 2022 – almost 18 months after the AstraZeneca vaccine was introduced.

In other words – even the temporal timeline for this ridiculous claim is out of whack!

Read more : Is US Sending Infected Birds To Spread Monkeypox?!

Fact #6 : Monkeypox Started Infecting People In 1970

The first human monkeypox infections were reported in 1970.

As you can tell – that’s almost 50 years before the COVID-19 pandemic, and 51 years before the AstraZeneca vaccine was introduced.

Fact #7 : Monkeypox Cases Were Increasing Before COVID-19

At first, monkeypox infections in humans were relatively few – about 400 cases from 1970 to 1986, and they were mostly limited to Central and Weest Africa.

However, it started becoming more common, with 2000 cases per year reported between 2011 and 2014. There were also several small outbreaks in the US (2003 and 2021), UK (2018 and 2021), and Singapore (2019).

These cases all happened long before the COVID-19 pandemic, and certainly long before AstraZeneca and Oxford developed their Vaxzevria vaccine against COVID-19!

Does Pfizer CEO aim to cut world population by 50%?

Did Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla say that one of his goals was to cut world population to 50% by the year 2023?!

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

 

Claim : Pfizer CEO Aims To Cut World Population By 50%!

Anti-vaccination activists are sharing a video that shows Pfizer CEO speaking at the World Economic Forum, saying :

I think that it’s really fulfilling of a dream that we had together with my leadership team when we started in ’19.

The first week we met, in January of ‘19 in California, and set up the goals for the next five years. And one of them was by 2023, we would reduce the number of people in the world by 50%.

I think today, this dream is becoming reality.

Are you shocked? Well, you would be even more shocked by the truth…

 

Truth : Pfizer CEO Does Not Aim To Cut World Population By 50%!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists to scare people from protecting themselves against COVID-19, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded At WEF In May 2022

First, let us establish some basic facts about this video.

  1. The full video shows WEF founder Klaus Schwab having a conversation with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla
  2. The viral video clip is a 30-second segment that starts at 2:36 minute of the full video.
  3. The video was recorded at the 2022 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting
  4. It was live-streamed on May 25, 2022 at about 2 PM CEST.

Fact #2 : Viral Video Was Edited

What you may not have noticed was that the viral video was edited, to remove the words “that cannot afford our medicines“.

If you watch the full video from the 2:36 minute point, you will see that Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla actually say :

And one of them was by 2023, we would reduce the number of people in the world that cannot afford our medicines by 50%.

By removing that small segment, the edited video makes Albert Bourla appear to say that it was his dream to reduce the world population to 50% by 2023.

Fact #3 : Big Pharma Needs More People, Not Fewer

It is frankly really stupid for anti-vaccination activists to claim that Big Pharma wants to reduce the world’s population.

Who do you think they sell their vaccines and medicines to? Aliens???

For Big Pharma to make tons of money, they need the world’s population to expand, not contract.

If they cut down the world’s population by 50%, that’s 50% fewer people to buy their drugs and vaccines.

Fact #4 : World’s Population Has Been Steadily Increasing

Regardless of whatever you may believe that the Pfizer CEO may have said, the fact still remains – the world’s population has not stopped increasing over time.

In fact, the world’s population is projected to hit 8 BILLION people on 15 November 2022!

The claim that Pfizer is achieving its dream of reducing the world’s population by half by 2023 is just ludicrous.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #6 : 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!
