MediaArticles & Analysis
Whilst a conciliatory approach is always advisable, the reality is that PANDA has been approached by a great many employees asking for assistance and advice in circumstances where employers have unfortunately been neither fair nor principled in their approach to employees who choose not to vaccinate.
Covid-19 injections are experimental therapies being deployed under emergency use authorisation (EUA). They are not fully approved by any regulatory body and have not undergone the complete review process required for full approval. All individuals have certain inalienable rights: informed consent and bodily autonomy being two of them.
In broad terms, the ARR compares how much the overall probability of an outcome reduced or increased. The RRR just compares the benefit, no matter how small, of one event versus another.
Medical care fundamentally demands treatment be provided without judgment for a patient’s personal beliefs. If a practitioner’s emotions do not allow them to dispense medical care without bias, they should immediately resign.
It is worth remembering that proponents on both sides of the debate have the same goal. We all want to reduce death, misery and harm while maintaining human dignity.
On 18 October 2021, the Western Cape Government sent a circular detailing the arrangements surrounding the South African vaccine rollout to 12-17 year olds. This is PANDA’s response.
Legacy media outlets have, over decades, become hollowed out by the erosion of their business models and they now show every sign of being compromised and failing to present balanced accounts of key aspects of the COVID policy response.
A false narrative about Covid has supported ineffective and highly destructive policies leading to the evisceration of individual rights, democracy and the rule of law in the name of a disease that presents negligible risk to most of the population. Virtually every element of the response has not been based on good science and the data prove that wherever you look.
Nick Hudson responds to a community member’s allegations against PANDA and its stance on Covid, flu deaths, and Ivermectin.
COVAX looks set to continue the remarkable spate of destruction to livelihoods, human rights and future health prospects resulting from lockdowns against COVID-19 across much of the globe.
Not prioritizing investigation of affordable options that could potentially have saved lives is an abrogation of responsibility and a betrayal by the WHO. At the very least, a new emphasis on large-scale serious trials of repurposed treatments, while allowing sensible use of what are highly safe medicines, is warranted.
In the delicate microscopic ecosystems humans inhabit, obstructing exposure to a range of pathogens threatens, rather than protects, public health.
Vaccine passports are a pointless ‘public health’ tool that will undermine trust in the medical profession and vaccination programs. They seem to serve economic, financial, political and ideological agendas. Most fundamentally, they are unethical.
This is the first of a series of articles by Nick Hudson on the political clown world that public health has become as most of the world has abandoned all guidelines and principles of public health in favour of previously contraindicated policies that have turned out to be ineffectual and very damaging.
The response to Angelo Ryan’s opinion piece in the Mail & Guardian on “vaccine hesitancy” is more interesting for what it tells you about the state of our captured media, than what it tells you about vaccination. Daily Maverick, Groundup, Bhekisisa and others have once again told us that they are promoting a specific narrative and censoring and demanding that others censor contrary views. Can you trust organisations that tell you that this is how they are conducting the business of journalism to give you accurate information in future? We think not.
An op-ed that appeared recently again highlights the need to fact check those who call themselves fact-checkers and the key messaging around COVID-19. What we wish to point out is the extent to which you are being manipulated.
Whilst promoting daily death counters is unprecedented for any disease and clearly has deleterious effects on mental health, mortality trends may be the only accurate way to track the impact of the SARS-CoV-2 virus pandemic.
Asking questions is at the heart of science. Science is not an institution and not an authority. Science is never settled. It is forever evolving through conjecture and criticism. Questions form the basis of all scientific inquiry and scientific progress. Without challenging existing concepts – usually held by a majority – there is no new knowledge creation. Censoring dissenting voices eliminates the mechanism of error correction and pushes humanity back into the dark ages.
The Fauci emails have revealed the tip of the censorship iceberg and should wake people up to the extent to which we are being kept in the dark. The Press, Academia and public institutions are hiding important information about this crisis from us based on a patriarchal idea that they know what is best for us. Because so many of them have deep-seated conflicts of interest, it is going to be very difficult to win back what we have lost.
Covid-19 brought about an age of misinformation like never before. This article takes a deep dive into the issue of natural immunity and Covid-19 vaccination. It provides evidence of natural immunity and is impeccably researched and well worth reading.
Just like lockdowns, a needle in every arm is another strategy that ignores demographic, geographic and immunological differences is being forced on the entire population without a risk-benefit analysis for the individual or a cost-benefit analysis for society.
Kogu maailmas on COVID-19 pandeemia ajal ametlik rahvatervise poliitika tuginenud murele, et inimesed, kellel ei ole haiguse sümptomeid, võivad viirust edasi kanda. Kas see mure on põhjendatud?
Across the globe, official public health policy during the COVID-19 pandemic has been underpinned by the concern that people without disease symptoms may transmit the virus. Is this concern warranted?
