Past vaccine disasters show why rushing a coronavirus vaccine now would be 'colossally stupid'​

That would make much more sense if this were a vaccine. It is not, so the whole thought process is flawed even though there is a good chance their conclusion is right.

Professor Explains Flaw in Many Models Used for COVID-19 Lockdown Policies​


“They were built on a set of assumptions. Those assumptions turned out to be really important, and the models are very sensitive to them, and they turn out to be false,” said Allen, the Burnaby Mountain Professor of Economics at Simon Fraser University, in an interview.

Allen says most of the early cost-benefit studies that he reviewed didn’t try to distinguish between mandated and voluntary changes in people’s behaviour in the face of a pandemic. Rather, they just assumed an exponential growth of cases of infection day after day until herd immunity is reached.

In a paper he published in April, in which he compiled his findings based on a review of over 80 papers on the effects of lockdowns around the world, Allen concluded that lockdowns may be one of “the greatest peacetime policy failures in Canada’s history.”

Latest peer-reviewed research: Immediate global ivermectin use will end COVID-19 pandemic​


Latest peer-reviewed research: Immediate global ivermectin use will end COVID-19 pandemic​



FRONTLINE COVID-19 CRITICAL CARE ALLIANCE (FLCCC ALLIANCE)

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Peer reviewed by medical experts that included three U.S. government senior scientists and published in the American Journal of Therapeutics, the research is the most comprehensive review of the available data taken from clinical, in vitro, animal, and real-world studies. Led by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), a group of medical and scientific experts reviewed published peer-reviewed studies, manuscripts, expert meta-analyses, and epidemiological analyses of regions with ivermectin distribution efforts all showing that ivermectin is an effective prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19.

"We did the work that the medical authorities failed to do, we conducted the most comprehensive review of the available data on ivermectin," said Pierre Kory, M.P.A., MD, president and chief medical officer of the FLCCC. "We applied the gold standard to qualify the data reviewed before concluding that ivermectin can end this pandemic."

A focus of the manuscript was on the 27 controlled trials available in January 2021, 15 of which were randomized controlled trials (RCT's), the preferred trial of the World Health Organization, U.S. National Institutes of Health, and the European Medicines Agency. Consistent with numerous meta-analyses of ivermectin RCT's since published by expert panels from the UK, Italy, Spain, and Japan, they found large, statistically significant reduction in mortality, time to recovery and viral clearance in COVID-19 patients treated with ivermectin.

To evaluate the efficacy of ivermectin in preventing COVID-19, 3 RCT's and 5 observational controlled trial's including almost 2,500 patients all reported that ivermectin significantly reduces the risk of contracting COVID-19 when used regularly.

Many regions around the world now recognize that ivermectin is a powerful prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19. South Africa, Zimbabwe, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Mexico, and now, India, have approved the drug for use by medical professionals. The results as seen in this latest study demonstrate that the ivermectin distribution campaigns repeatedly led to "rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality."

"Our latest research shows, once again, that when the totality of the evidence is examined, there is no doubt that ivermectin is highly effective as a safe prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19," said Paul E. Marik, M.D., FCCM, FCCP, founding member of the FLCCC and Chief, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School. "We can no longer rely on many of the larger health authorities to make an honest examination of the medical and scientific evidence. So, we are calling on regional public health authorities and medical professionals around the world to demand that ivermectin be included in their standard of care right away so we can end this pandemic once and for all."

Growing COVID-19 cases at a Mississauga hotel have resulted in an outbreak being declared at a third Pearson airport quarantine site.

On Saturday, Peel Public Health issued an order under Sec. 22 of the Reopening Ontario Act to partially close the Hampton Inn and Suites Toronto Airport hotel after a number of staff were diagnosed with COVID-19.


Health Canada has also quietly removed the hotel from its list of approved sites for international air travellers to undergo their mandatory three-day quarantine stay.

Calls to both hotel management and the front desk went unanswered on Monday, and a spokesperson for Hilton International told the Sun they couldn’t comment on the outbreak as the property, on Caroga Dr. east of the airport, is independently owned and operated.

Sources tell the Sun the hotel’s guests of the government have been relocated to other properties.

Regional medical officers of health have the power to order businesses closed if five or more employees test positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day span.


Partial closures, which involve dismissing entire shifts, departments or areas, occur when it’s determined outbreaks can be contained without ordering the full closure of the business.

On May 3, an outbreak was declared by Toronto Public Health at the nearby Toronto Airport Holiday Inn on Dixon Rd. after seven workers contracted the virus, while 13 employees tested COVID positive at the Crowne Plaza Airport Toronto hotel a few days prior.

Both hotels are also listed by Health Canada as federally approved quarantine sites.

Ontario's surgical backlog will take $1.3B, 3.5 years to clear: FAO
Ford government's 2021 budget short about $700 million what is likely to be needed to clear backlog, the report says

Ontario will need $1.3 billion and 3.5 years just to clear its massive backlog in elective surgeries and diagnostic procedures, the Financial Accountability Office of Ontario (FAO) estimates in a new report released Monday.

The report found a $3.7-billion hole in the 2023-24 Ontario health budget, which would grow to a cumulative $61.9 billion by 2023-30 without additional spending.


The health-care spending shortfall is largest in hospitals, Ontario public drug programs and community programs, the FAO says.

“This means that if the province intends to meet its health sector spending targets, then new spending restraint measures will need to be introduced,” an FAO statement says.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said the government has committed $500 million to the backlog, plus additional funding to expand hospital hours in evenings and weekends.

“We also have a regional wait list now — which we haven’t had before — which means we can now use every possible time and space in operating rooms to advance surgeries whether cardiac, cancer or orthopedic surgeries or cataract surgeries,” Elliott said. “We have performed over 420,000 surgeries since the pandemic began.”

If a person’s life is in jeopardy, the patient will get the surgery, she said.

The elective backlog — which skyrocketed after the provincial government ordered hospitals to preserve critical care capacity for COVID-19 patients — is projected to grow to 410,200 postponed surgeries and almost 2.5 million delayed diagnostic procedures by the end of September, the FAO says.

The FAO report estimates the cost of clearing the cancer surgery backlog alone at $57 million and total surgery backlog at $1.06 billion.

Another $241 million will be needed to eliminate the backlog in cancer screenings and CT and MRI scans, the report says.

The Doug Ford government’s 2021 budget put $610 million into addressing the backlog, about $700 million less than what is likely to be needed, the report says.


The 2021 budget anticipates spending in the health sector generally to grow by 2.6% for the remainder of the decade — a relatively modest amount even before promised new spending on enhanced services such as additional long-term care (LTC) beds and resident care, more hospital beds, and expanded home and community care.

Government spending on COVID-19 measures comes with a time limit and a focus on testing and contract tracing, operations support and LTC homes, the FAO says.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said in a statement that the “whopping $700-million” shortfall in tackling the surgical and diagnostic backlog needs to be filled.

“Some people with cancer are in a waking nightmare, knowing their cancer could be growing or spreading as we speak, and not knowing when their surgery will come,” Horwath said. “Some are struggling to walk or sleep comfortably waiting for hip, knee or back surgery. Their quality of life has been shattered.”

The OPP is reviewing a request from the Ontario NDP to determine if a criminal investigation is warranted into alleged deaths by neglect in long-term care (LTC) homes, says OPP Commissioner Thomas Carrique.

In a letter to NDP Leader Andrea Horwath dated Monday, Carrique said he’ll respond further once the police force has had an opportunity to assess the matter.


“I sincerely sympathize with all those who have experienced the loss of a loved one during this pandemic,” he said in the letter.

Horwath wrote to Carrique Thusday asking that the OPP consider whether there is a case for criminal charges following reports that LTC residents died last year “not because of the COVID-19 virus but because of callous, documented neglect in their basic necessities of life.”

The Canadian Armed Forces, the Auditor General of Ontario and the Long-term Care COVID-19 Commission have all reported on the shocking failures, she said.

A civil-military co-operation (CIMIC) report — dated June 2020 — highlighted what members of the Canadian military found when they went into the Downsview LTC home.

“Twenty-six residents died due to dehydration prior to the arrival of the CAF team due to the lack of staff to care for them,” the report says. “They died when all they need(ed) was ‘water and a wipe down’.”

The same report noted a cockroach infestation and other significant problems while caring for the frail residents during a COVID-19 outbreak.

Liberal MPP John Fraser said the loss of life and suffering in Ontario LTC home in the first and second waves of the pandemic was tragic.


“As legislators, as a society, we have an obligation to make sure that this never happens again,” Fraser said. “It’s been 10 days since a Long-term Care Commission released their final report providing 85 recommendations on how to improve conditions in long-term care. It’s clear that immediate and sustained action must be taken.”

Fraser introduced a private member’s bill Monday that would require the provincial government to provide updates on its progress in implementing the LTC commission’s recommendations.

Government House Leader Paul Calandra told the Ontario legislature Monday that the chief coroner has been engaged to look at all deaths in long-term care.

Once those findings have been received and reviewed, the government will act on the recommendations it receives, he said.

“Obviously, we’re very grateful for the work that the Canadian Armed Forces did in assisting us,” Calandra said. “It’s one of a whole series of measures that the government took during the first wave. As you know, it was a very challenging time.”

Ontario voters back COVID restrictions: Poll

Four out of 10 Ontario voters believe the restrictions currently put in place by the Ford government do not go far enough and need to be tightened up in order to beat back COVID-19, according to a poll.

This compares to 25% who feel the restrictions are appropriate but should stay in place for at least the full month of May.


Another 15% think it is time to relax restrictions and focus on the economy and 12% feel the restrictions are ineffective, unnecessary, and excessive.

The polling is the result of data collected by Campaign Research from May 2-9, using the Maru Voice Canada online panel.

Campaign Research is headed up in part by Nick Kouvalis, an advisor to the Ford government who has also done work for Liberal and Conservative politicians across the country, including Toronto Mayor John Tory and former Liberal B.C. premier Christie Clark.

His latest poll also shows a drop in support for Ford.

A full 45% say the government was right to invoke the stay-at-home order while 18% say the government was wrong to implement that order. Yet by comparison, 27% say that everything should be shut down even if it means that businesses fail and jobs are lost.

The latest numbers from Campaign Research show that the PC Party of Ontario is down at least 5 points, not as much as other pollsters but still a significant amount.

The question becomes, will the change be enough to alter the next election?

Emergency Alert! Fauci Project Manager Confesses to Creating Covid-19​

Director Peter Daszak admits to harvesting wild viruses and combining them to infect humans at the Wuhan lab!

This is most important story Alex Jones has ever covered! Tune in and share this link to expose the criminals!

Even if the grant required the work plan described above, how can we be sure that the plan was in fact carried out? For that we can rely on the word of Daszak, who has been much protesting for the last 15 months that lab escape was a ludicrous conspiracy theory invented by China-bashers.

On December 9, 2019, before the outbreak of the pandemic became generally known, Daszak gave an interview in which he talked in glowing terms of how researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology had been reprogramming the spike protein and generating chimeric coronaviruses capable of infecting humanized mice.

“And we have now found, you know, after 6 or 7 years of doing this, over 100 new SARS-related coronaviruses, very close to SARS,” Daszak says around minute 28 of the interview. “Some of them get into human cells in the lab, some of them can cause SARS disease in humanized mice models and are untreatable with therapeutic monoclonals and you can’t vaccinate against them with a vaccine. So, these are a clear and present danger….

“Interviewer: You say these are diverse coronaviruses and you can’t vaccinate against them, and no anti-virals — so what do we do?

“Daszak: Well I think…coronaviruses — you can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily. Spike protein drives a lot of what happen with coronavirus, in zoonotic risk. So you can get the sequence, you can build the protein, and we work a lot with Ralph Baric at UNC to do this. Insert into the backbone of another virus and do some work in the lab. So you can get more predictive when you find a sequence. You’ve got this diversity. Now the logical progression for vaccines is, if you are going to develop a vaccine for SARS, people are going to use pandemic SARS, but let’s insert some of these other things and get a better vaccine.” The insertions he referred to perhaps included an element called the furin cleavage site, discussed below, which greatly increases viral infectivity for human cells.

In disjointed style, Daszak is referring to the fact that once you have generated a novel coronavirus that can attack human cells, you can take the spike protein and make it the basis for a vaccine.

One can only imagine Daszak’s reaction when he heard of the outbreak of the epidemic in Wuhan a few days later. He would have known better than anyone the Wuhan Institute’s goal of making bat coronaviruses infectious to humans, as well as the weaknesses in the institute’s defense against their own researchers becoming infected.

But instead of providing public health authorities with the plentiful information at his disposal, he immediately launched a public relations campaign to persuade the world that the epidemic couldn’t possibly have been caused by one of the institute’s souped-up viruses. “The idea that this virus escaped from a lab is just pure baloney. It’s simply not true,” he declared in an April 2020 interview.


Here is the actual interview - right from the hoerse's mouth.

LILLEY: Let doctors speak freely even when what they say is unpopular

Do doctors need to only offer up official talking points when discussing COVID-19? That’s part of the discussion in an ongoing battle to regulate what doctors can say.

It’s outrageous that some, especially in positions of power, think doctors must never break ranks, but that’s what the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) did when it issued a statement on April 30.


“Physicians must not make comments or provide advice that encourages the public to act contrary to public health orders and recommendations,” the statement said before going on to issue a warning.

“Physicians who put the public at risk may face an investigation by the CPSO and disciplinary action, when warranted.”

On May 10, the college put out a follow-up statement that didn’t come close to withdrawing those troubling words. The statement stands, but the college did say that it was, “intended to address communications from a small group of physicians spreading blatant misinformation.”

“We continue to recognize the important roles physicians can play by advocating for change in a socially-accountable manner,” CPSO CEO Dr. Nancy Whitmore said in an email to members.

Ontario isn’t alone in doing this as British Columbia is now jumping on board and saying those who go against current public health policy could face disciplinary actions.


It’s a ridiculous idea that turns doctors into nothing more than mouthpieces for government actions. A new group calling itself Canadian Physicians for Science and Truth is calling out the dangers of such policies.

“The CPSO is ordering physicians to put aside the scientific method and to not debate the processes and conclusions of science,” said the statement from the new group.

“We physicians know and continue to believe that throughout history, opposing views, vigorous debate and openness to new ideas have been the bedrock of scientific progress.”

Think about the implications of this policy had it been in place at the beginning of the pandemic.

While now the CPSO is warning doctors not to express anti-masking views, at the start of all this, the top public health officials were all warning that wearing a mask might be more dangerous than not wearing one.

We were also told that only those exhibiting symptoms could spread COVID, that shutting down travel would not help stop the spread of the virus and even that human-to-human contact wasn’t possible.

It was others, including many doctors, who argued otherwise. Now, the regulatory bodies for doctors in Ontario and B.C. are warning not to do that.

Right now, Health Canada continues to say that the AstraZeneca vaccine is safe despite concerns about blood clots. Close to 2 million Canadians have received a dose of that vaccine so far, but some doctors are now saying we should stop using it.

Is that anti-vaccine?

It definitely goes against current public health advice.

What about doctors who advocate for golf courses to re-open despite public health officials ordering them closed? There are arguments made on both sides using medical and scientific data to back up their claims.

Is it up to the CPSO to determine the right policy or just enforce the government line? I’d say no.

There are doctors speaking up about the dangers of lockdowns due to the increase of overdoses and other substance abuse problems that have increased over the last year. Should they not speak about what they see?

This isn’t about the CPSO cracking down on doctors telling patients to drink bleach to cure COVID. This is about a small group of politically-active doctors trying to control the free speech of their peers.

This policy doesn’t need to be clarified; it needs to be withdrawn.
