Did German Gov’t Just Admit There Was No Pandemic?!

Did the German government just admit that there was no COVID-19 pandemic?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : German Government Admits There Was No Pandemic!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the German government just admitted that there was no COVID-19 pandemic!

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

Truth : German Government Did Not Admit There Was No Pandemic!

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

Fact #1 : German Government Did Not Admit There Was No Pandemic

Let me start by pointing out that the German government did not admit that there was no COVID-19 pandemic.

If the German government really admitted that there was no COVID-19 pandemic, it would have reported by the worldwide media. Yet, there was no such report by any legitimate media outlet. That’s because it never happened.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its ridiculous claim.

Fact #2 : RKI Documents Do Not Show Pandemic Did Not Exist

The People’s Voice article is referring to documents from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) released in the midst of a lawsuit, which purportedly show that the COVID-19 pandemic was “all fraud”, and was “a political decision”:

New: #RKIFiles are out!
Over 2,000 pages showing that the ‘pandemic’ was all fraud. Highlights:

1. ‘High health risk’ was not derived from data, but a political decision.
2. ‘Herd immunity’ was seen as a mere narrative.

Well, that’s not accurate as German TV channel Tagesschau explained (English):

One of the main reasons for the alleged explosiveness is the RKI’s decision on March 17, 2020 to rate the risk assessment of Corona for the health of the population in Germany from moderate to high. The minutes therefore show that this decision was not based on the RKI’s professional assessment, but rather on the political instructions of an external actor. However, this cannot be seen from the logs.

The minutes from March 16, 2020 state that a new risk assessment was prepared over the weekend. “It will be scaled up this week,” they say. The risk assessment will be published as soon as a person blacked out in the documents gives a signal. According to the Ministry of Health, “an internal RKI employee” is behind the redaction.

The RKI had already carried out a new risk assessment, which, however, had not yet been published. The claim that this decision was not based on professional judgment is therefore misleading. All that was needed was the consent of a specific person to publish this risk assessment.

In other words, the German government’s decision to hike the COVID-19 health risk from moderate to high was possibly based on the “scaled-up” risk assessment that was not revealed in those minutes.

More importantly, none of these documents show that the COVID-19 pandemic was “all fraud” and was just “a political decision”.

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Cases Were Exploding Globally

The claim that the COVID-19 pandemic was “all fraud” is also nonsensical because cases were exploding globally. Any decision on whether the risk of COVID-19 was high would not be based solely on cases inside Germany, but globally.

In addition, it is questionable to present this increased risk assessment as if there had been no evidence of it at the time, says Hajo Zeeb, Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Bremen. The number of corona infections rose rapidly in March 2020. On March 4th, only 262 cases were reported in Germany; on March 16th , almost two weeks later, there were already 6,012 cumulative cases.

“Not only from a small, narrow German perspective, but also from a global perspective, you have to say very clearly that the numbers have exploded,” says Zeeb. Although more tests were carried out from mid-March onwards, the positive rate in Germany also rose by a good percentage point within a week. “Such an increase in such a short period of time is substantial, even if it doesn’t sound like much,” says Zeeb. At the time, the tests only provided a small excerpt of the infection process.

Fact #4 : Olaf Scholz Screenshot Is Fake

The cover image used by The People’s Voice article and video has a screenshot which purportedly shows the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz posting on X (formerly Twitter) that:

Covid was a psy-op to test compliance with mRNA and lockdowns. There was no pandemic.

That is most definitely a fake screenshot, because there is no such post on X by the Olaf Scholz.

If the German Chancellor actually posted such a shocking tweet, it would have been reported by the worldwide media. But of course, that didn’t happen, because Olaf Scholz never posted it!

His official Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz account on X also has a grey checkmark, not a blue checkmark. In addition, he mostly posts in German, not English.

Yet again, and unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that such a post ever existed!

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For 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 Germany admit 1 in 5000 vaccine shots cause serious effects?!

Did Germany just admit that 1 in 5,000 vaccine shots cause “serious side effects”?!

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

 

Claim : Germany Admits 1 in 5,000 Vaccine Shots Cause Serious Effects!

Anti-vaccination activists are sharing a screenshot of a Facebook post, or a CHD article claiming that Germany just admitted that 1 in 5,000 vaccine shots cause “serious side effects”!

Here is what The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) wrote about this shocking claim. It’s rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

‘Stunning’: 1 in 5,000 COVID Shots Caused ‘Serious Side Effects,’ German Health Officials Admit

The German Federal Ministry of Health on Wednesday posted a “stunning tweet” admitting 1 of every 5,000 COVID-19 vaccinations caused “serious side effects.” The data included 5,862 reports of suspected adverse reactions in children and adolescents.

 

Germany Did NOT Admit 1 in 5,000 Vaccine Shots Cause Serious Effects!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists and The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) to scare people from protecting themselves against COVID-19, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Germany Never Said That

It is interesting to note that the CHD and anti-vaccination activists posted screenshots of the post by the German Federal Ministry of Health (Bundesministerium für Gesundheit), but not links to the tweet or Facebook post.

If you check the actual tweet or Facebook post and do a machine translation, you would realise that German health officials never said any of that.

For your convenience, here was what the German Federal Ministry of Health posted, machine translated into English :

0,2 Verdachtsmeldungen pro 1.000 Impfdosen beträgt die Melderate ans Paul-Ehrlich-Institut für schwerwiegende Reaktionen. Sollten Sie den Verdacht auf Nebenwirkungen haben, holen Sie sich ärztliche Hilfe und melden Sie Ihre Symptome: nebenwirkungen.bund.de/nw/DE/home/home_node.html

The reporting rate to the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut for serious reactions is 0.2 suspected reports per 1,000 vaccine doses. If you suspect side effects, get medical help and report your symptoms: side effects.bund.de/nw/DE/home/home_node.html

As you can see, German health officials never said that 1 in 5,000 vaccine shots in Germany caused severe side effects.

They only said that the Paul-Ehrlich Institute is receiving about 1 report of suspected serious reaction for every 5,000 vaccine doses.

Hence, they are advising people to report any side effects they may encounter and seek medical help if necessary.

Note the word “suspected”. Just because there is a report, does not mean it is an actual side effect of the COVID-19 vaccines. These reports have to be investigated.

Fact #2 : German Poster Never Said That Either

Even the German poster that the CHD and anti-vaccination activists shared, did not say that either.

Verdacht auf Nebenwirkungen durch die Corona-Schutzimpfung?
Wenden Sie sich an Ihre Ärztin oder Ihren Art und melden Sie Ire Symptome dem Paul-Ehrlich-Institutmithilfe de COVID-19-Meldeformulars.

Do you suspect side effects from the coronavirus vaccination?
Contact your doctor or nurse and report your symptoms to the Paul Ehrlich Institute using the COVID-19 reporting form.

This is pretty much what most governments around the world are doing – asking people who believe that they are experiencing side effects from their COVID-19 vaccinations to report them.

This not only disproves what the CHD and anti-vaccination activists claimed, it also shows that there is no cover-up, and that Germany (like many other countries) are interested to find out if the COVID-19 vaccine can indeed cause serious side effects.

Fact #3 : German Health Officials Clarified What They Meant

On July 21 – a day after their post went viral on Facebook and Twitter – German health officials clarified that the report rate of 0.2 in 1,000 vaccine doses referred to “all reports of suspected side effects to the Paul Ehrlich Institute“.

They also stated that those reports have not been verified, and no causal connection with the vaccination has been established.

Die Melderate bezieht sich auf alle Verdachtsmeldungen, d. h. ein ursächlicher Zusammenhang mit der Impfung ist mit der Verdachtsmeldung noch nicht bestätigt, es wird erstmal ein zeitlicher Zusammenhang festgestellt.

The report rate refers to all suspicious reports, i.e. a causal connection with the vaccination has not yet been confirmed with the report of suspicion, a time connection is first established.

Fact #4 : German Health Officials Say Serious Side Effect Risks Are Very Low

The German Federal Ministry of Health also stated in their clarification that the risk of a serious side effect from COVID-19 vaccination in Germany is “very low“.

Das Risiko einer schwerwiegenden Nebenwirkung nach einer COVID-19-Impfung ist sehr gering.

The risk of a serious side-effect following a COVID-19 vaccine is very low.

Fact #5 : Pharmacovigilance Data Is Unverified

In their article, CHD lists the number of reported side effects as a way to scare people into believing that the COVID-19 vaccines are dangerous.

What they don’t want you to know is that – these reports are unverified. While the German system isn’t as open to abuse like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, they include reports that have nothing to do with the vaccine.

All pharmacovigilance databases that collect such reports warn that their data and reports cannot be considered evidence of any kind, because :

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

CHD is deliberately misleading you by quoting these reports, because they have not even been confirmed to be caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Greatly Reduce Hospitalisation + Death

What the CHD and anti-vaccination activists don’t want you to know is that – the vaccines have been proven to greatly reduce hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

In Germany, RKI stats show that even as COVID-19 infections rates surged, vaccinated people were far less likely to be hospitalised from COVID-19, compared to the unvaccinated.

Fact #7 : 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!
