FACTS NOT FEAR 0/13

The COVID-19 pandemic response ignored previous pandemic preparedness plans and continues to overlook emerging scientific evidence. 

Public health Interventions should meet the following conditions:

  1. respect human dignity and autonomy
  2. be participatory and non-coercive
  3. be based on individual needs
  4. aim to minimize total harm, not just harm from a single disease
  5. be based on favourable cost-benefit analysis

 The role of government is to provide accurate information so individuals can make informed decisions. Instead, coercion and censorship are making the adjustment to a more proportionate response impossible.

FACTS NOT FEAR 1/13

COVID SUSCEPTIBILITY

In March 2020, COVID-19 was predicted to kill 40 million people worldwide, based on flawed computer modelling and faulty assumptions, including no one being immune from the virus.

Up to 80% of people have prior immunity from exposure to closely-related coronaviruses, protecting them from serious illness.

In March 2020, the Diamond Princess ship data showed that only a small section of the population is at risk of serious illness from SARS-CoV-2.

SARS-CoV-2 is NOT so novel. Our immune systems can protect us.

COVID FATALITY RATES

“The consequences of COVID-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza” – Dr Anthony Fauci

In March 2020, the WHO claimed mortality from COVID-19 = 3.4%. This represents deaths among cases, which then included only high-risk individuals in hospitals, with a higher risk of death than most.

This figure falsely implied that the general public was at similar risk.

Yet, if infected, the average mortality with COVID is similar to the flu at around 0.15%, globally.

COVID is NOT Ebola.

COVID MORTALITY

COVID-19 is dangerous for the very old,  yet the median age of death with COVID-19 is similar to that of natural mortality in most countries.

Children and young people have almost zero risk of death from COVID. 99.95% of individuals below 70 survive if infected. Survival is even higher for healthy individuals. 95% of deaths occur with one or more serious health problems.

Lockdowns shift the burden of herd immunity to “essential workers”. They failed to protect the vulnerable and killed many by denying treatment of other diseases and harming mental health. They destroyed livelihoods and caused immense collateral damage, particularly  to the young and the poor.

Efforts and resources should be focused on protecting ONLY the high-risk group (mostly people above 50, with other health problems). The rest can live normally.

ASYMPTOMATIC SPREAD

“In all the history of respiratory-born viruses of any type, asymptomatic transmission has never been the driver of outbreaks. The driver of outbreaks is always a symptomatic person.” Anthony Fauci

A systematic review and meta-analysis from 2020 showed that  asymptomatic spread is not a key driver of disease. Asymptomatic ‘cases’ transmit a very low viral load, facilitating population inoculation, which is protective, rather than causing severe disease.

Healthy people being tested, quarantined and prevented from working or travelling is unscientific and must end.

TRANSMISSION

The CDC overestimated outdoor spread of SARS-CoV-2 , claiming it represents 10% of transmissions, when it is 100 times less.

Catching the virus from surfaces is also very rare. SARS-CoV-2 is mainly spread through tiny aerosol droplets (airborne) that remain suspended in the air for days.

Transmission is most common in indoor settings with a high amount of circulating viruses, such as in hospitals and nursing homes.

Lockdowns, school closures, social distancing, mass testing and contact tracing and border closures are futile. They damage all aspects of life: physical, mental, social, and economic.

PCR TESTS

The PCR test is not designed to diagnose infectiousness or illness. It merely detects SARS-CoV-2 genetic material, dead or alive. The cycle threshold (Ct) is the number of times the genetic material of the sample is doubled.

The WHO recommended a high Ct of 45, well above what is needed to detect a live virus 1, 2, 3, 4 and defined a case based on a positive PCR test, regardless of symptoms (contrary to established medical practice). The result is a high number of clinical false positives, inflated case and death numbers and the incorrect attribution of death to COVID-19.

Only high-risk patients with symptoms should be tested to inform their treatment.

MASKS

Numerous conflicting messages about masks were issued to the public by health authorities.

The CDC published a meta-analysis in May 2020 stating, “We did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission”.

The WHO published Interim guidance in June 2020 stating “At present, there is no direct evidence on the effectiveness of universal masking of healthy people in the community”.

“The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material.” Dr Anthony Fauci

The data shows mask mandates don’t reduce viral spread.

FACTS NOT FEAR 8/13

ZERO COVID

A ZERO COVID world is completely unrealistic and unachievable. New variants will always emerge as long as there is transmission:

  1. The vaccine doesn’t stop infection or transmission
  2. The virus can be transmitted among animals

Even if the entire planet is vaccinated, transmission will continue.

All respiratory viruses mutate. Yet  variants are so minutely different from each other that our immune system recognises them – if previously encountered – and protects us from serious illness.

Natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2 is broad and long-lasting—more so than vaccine-induced immunity.

SARS-CoV-2 is now one of 5 circulating coronaviruses. It’s here to stay.

LONG COVID

Evidence is poor on the severity and prevalence of Long-COVID, with many studies relying on self-reported symptoms and not including uninfected control groups.

Experiencing long-term symptoms following illness is common with all respiratory viruses, including the flu. Early treatment reduces hospitalisation and deaths and is very likely to reduce the incidence of Long-COVID in COVID-19 patients.

For the vast majority of patients, COVID-19 is a mild self-limiting illness with no long-term sequelae. Recent studies show that there was no meaningful difference in Long-COVID symptoms reported by children and adolescents who were seropositive (with SARS-CoV-2 antibodies – indicating recent infection) or seronegative (without SARS-CoV-2 antibodies).

EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION (EUA)

Conditions for EUA of Vaccines:

  1. The disease caused by the virus is life-threatening
  2. There is no treatment for the disease

COVID-19 has serious health consequences for a small high-risk group. Life saving treatment protocols, using safe and effective drugs, have been available since August 2020. Unfortunately, they are being suppressed and even banned.

The EUA conditions are thus not met and the vaccines do not qualify for EUA. They require further study in controlled clinical trials. The results  should be replicated by independent scientists, before the vaccines are offered to the high-risk group.

COVID VACCINES

Safe and efficacious vaccines should be offered to high-risk individuals (mostly people above 50, with other health problems) when the benefit of the intervention clearly outweighs the risk. There is mounting evidence of serious adverse events, particularly myocarditis in the young, following COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccinating low-risk individuals will increase total harm.

For the following low-risk groups, the vaccine risks outweigh their benefits:

  1. children & young people
  2. individuals with past SARS-CoV-2 infection (including asymptomatic infection)
  3. individuals below 60 with no existing health problems
  4. risk to the foetus and breastfeeding infant from the vaccination of their mother cannot be determined yet

Adverse events reporting systems act as a signalling system so immediate action can be taken to prevent greater harm. There is a strong enough signal already to warrant investigation.

VACCINE PASSPORTS

Vaccines should never be mandatory or coerced through social pressure.

A sound basis for vaccination is:

  1. medical need (high risk from COVID, poor health status, advanced age)
  2. informed consent about the risks posed by the vaccines
  3. the benefits of the vaccine outweigh its risks for the individual
  4. freedom of choice (like any other medical intervention)

If the vaccines work, the vaccinated need NOT fear the unvaccinated, so vaccine passports are POINTLESS. If they do not work , vaccine passports are also POINTLESS.

FACTS NOT FEAR 13/13

FEAR & COURAGE 

Psychological operations run by governments across the world have allowed fear to go viral.

“Courage consists of overcoming fear. It is up to every individual to inform themselves, to turn away from mainstream media, to hear the reality behind Coronavirus and lockdowns” – Nick Hudson – Chairman of PANDA

Bonus health tips for real protection from SARS-CoV-2:

  1. Eat a varied, non-processed diet with plenty of vegetables
  2. Stay active to reduce unwanted weight
  3. Get some sun (or Vitamin D supplements) & breathe fresh air
  4. Sleep, laugh, sing, dance and practice SOCIAL CLOSENESS

JUST SAY NO to lockdowns, masks & vaccine passports. They run counter to public health principles.

RECLAIM LIFE.

The Elephants In The Room

While citizens focus on the latest issue the government directs our attention to, many of us have lost sight of the big picture and grown accustomed to severe limitations on our rights like the proverbial frogs in hot water. PANDA is increasingly aware of the elephants in the room, the topics no one is talking about.

Welcome to Clown World: Part 2 — Vaccine Zealots

From the start, PANDA has maintained that vaccination should be approached from the same risk-benefit perspective that forms the basis of all good public health policies and animates our other perspectives on the pandemic.

Doing Darkness When the Lights Are Off

Abject poverty has escalated to lethal levels during the pandemic. Communities are disempowered and sabotaged by an obsessive focus on COVID-19, manifested in lockdown policies and now coerced vaccination.
