“You can check-in, but you can never leave” is becoming the slogan of US hospitals treating COVID-19.
Stewart Peters interviewed Nancy Ross, friend and Power of Attorney for Veronica Wolskis, the (now deceased) patient.
“Isn’t there such a thing as AMA, against medical advice, that a patient is always afforded the right to just leave, to walk out?” Peters asked. See mark 6:00.
Nancy Ross responded that despite having an ambulance ready to meet her friend’s needs and a Nurse Practitioner standing by ready to take over care, the hospital refused to authorize her release. See mark 6:48 to 8:10.
“COVID patients in America’s hospitals today are actually being treated worse than prisoners in American jails,” Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet said. They are being held hostage and segregated from loved ones. And the reason is money.
“They (the hospitals) are paid by the government to do a PCR test on every patient who walks in the door… Then they are paid extra for a COVID admission to the hospital, they are paid an extra 20% bonus on the entire hospital bill, if the hospital ONLY uses Remdesivir to treat the patient.
“And then if the patient goes on a ventilator, which is a consequence of some of the toxicity of Remdesivir and the restriction of fluids and nutrients that they are also doing, and once the patient is on a ventilator there is ANOTHER incentive bonus to the hospitals. If the patient dies in the hospital, there is another incentive payment,” Vliet said. See mark 11:55.
Dr. Vliet further clarified that Remdesivir, a failed Ebola drug that proved ineffective and highly toxic, is used as the FDA’s approved COVID treatment, and is associated with organ toxicity, making patients sicker and more likely to require a ventilator, and hence more likely for the hospital to get a larger bonus payment.
“Thomas Renz, an attorney investigating some of these hospital abuses, has data from whistleblowers, now under Federal Whistleblower protection, and they have calculated that the hospitals, at a minimum, are making $100,000 extra per COVID patient, for following all of these directives, and not deviating from them,” Vliet continued. See mark 12:50.
She explains that these patients are restricted access from their family members.
“Basically, they do not want the family to know what’s going on, and they don’t want the public to know – it’s been terribly censored,” Vliet said. “It’s very difficult for any outside family members or physicians to be able to get information.” See mark 13:17 to 13:43.
As Dr. Breggin noted, Elizabeth Lee Vliet MD is a heroic physician who founded the Truth for Health Foundation. However, like many other traditional doctors, she is old school.
“I don’t want the (COVID-19) patients to die on my watch if I can help them. So I started doing my best to treat them,” she said. See mark 6:46.
However, that sentiment seems to be the polar opposite of what we see happening in hospitals across our nation. While all physicians must take an oath to “Do No Harm,” the hospital has no such obligation. Instead, hospitals are often run by corporations, and as such, they have one overriding duty – to maximize shareholder profits.
Even if this causes patient harm, so long as the cost in legal and settlement fees is less than the profits, illegal or harmful schemes are often fair game. One might look at the example of the exploding gas tank Ford Pinto case: Grimshaw v. Ford Motor Company.
In 1972, a Pinto in a rear-end collision exploded due to a defective condition that caused the driver’s death and permanent disability to the passenger, Grimshaw. This gas tank defect was well known to Ford Motor Company, yet based upon a cost analysis of having to recall and repair the defective vehicles, they chose to take their chances in court.
An internal memo from Ford was found that estimated it would cost the corporation $137 million to recall and fix all the existing defective Pintos immediately, so Ford felt it was not in their financial interests to fix the vehicles; rather it would be cheaper to allow the injuries.
As a result, following a trial that exposed all this, the jury awarded $2.8 million to Grimshaw, but an additional $125 million in punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to discourage harmful and intentional wrongdoing, precisely of the type perpetrated by Ford. Rarely can a plaintiff find sufficient proof or evidence to show this intent, but with the help of whistleblower Harley Copp, a former Ford Engineer in charge of the crash testing program, the legal standard was met.
Unfortunately, the $125 million was appealed, and the amount was reduced to $3.5 million. In essence, Ford got away with it. An article in Mother Jones estimated that between 500 and 900 people burned to death as a result of Pinto’s faulty design, yet Ford never paid the price.
Justice edged closer to Ford in another trial when they were charged with criminal misconduct. The tragic tale of three Indiana teenagers dying in a fiery crash while on their way to Church volleyball practice got national attention and became the OJ Simpson trial of 1978.
Ford was charged with three counts of reckless homicide in Indiana v. Ford Motor Company. Like the Los Angeles Prosecutors with OJ, the Elkhart, Indiana team had little experience and money behind them. Elkhart provided a tiny $20,000 budget but faced a legal dream team led by top trial lawyer James F. Neal. And as in OJ, the guilty were acquitted.
However, as if to add insult to injury, Ford voluntarily paid $7,500 for each of the Ulrich girls, the victims. If Indiana v. Ford Motor Company awoke America to the reality of the American automotive industry as being “a soulless engine of greed and profit,” we now witness the same with the hospital industry as the horrors of the COVID-19 pandemic are revealed.
Dr. Elizabeth Vliet notes that hospitals were financially incentivized with more money to diagnose patients with COVID, up to $39 thousand each if the patient were to be placed on a ventilator, and an even greater bonus if the patient were to die of COVID. So there was a bounty to find COVID patients and another bounty to make certain they made it on ventilators and died.
Where is the proof, you might ask?
For starters, consider the undercover work of whistleblower nurse Erin Marie Olszewski, who traveled to New York City in 2020 during the height of the spring surge of the COVID-19 pandemic. Once settled into her hotel room on Times Square and ready to assist the medical response team with the expected and publicized calamity, she waited for three days. Crickets.
She reached out to others who noticed the same thing. The media hype did not match the reality. But here she was, having flown in to combat COVID. Like a 9/11 patriot, nurse Olszewski was determined to fight the enemy, at least the one she had been led to believe existed. The good medical ship Comfort was docked nearby. Perhaps she could battle the virus there. Once again, she heard crickets.
Finally, the media drew her attention to Elmhurst Hospital, the supposed “Epicenter of the Epicenter.” Surely the enemy was there. And it was, although not the enemy she expected. While at Elmhurst, she found stroke patients roomed with COVID cases. She witnessed neglect of epic proportions, where patients were often unattended for days or even weeks, apparently left to die.
Inexperienced physicians were put in charge of the ICU. Nurses and eye doctors struggled to find the proper settings while connecting patients to ventilators. Many patients died due to the use of improper settings by inexperienced operators – resulting in blowing out COVID patients’ delicate and inflamed lungs.
She described how the resident physicians refused to consider treatments like vitamins, hydroxychloroquine, or promising off-label therapies. Instead, COVID patients were funneled toward ventilators despite nearly uniformly fatal outcomes.
At great personal risk, she meticulously documented all of this, and then went in undercover and recorded the evidence. She reported that the hospital was paid bonuses for each COVID diagnosis. They were paid more for treating patients with Remdesivir, placing patients on ventilators, and even for COVID deaths.
A fellow nurse, Katherine Alexa, wrote this about Olszewski’s Elmhurst exposé: “Elmhurst practices medicine by guidelines unheard of in a first-world country—and justified it, due to their classification as a city hospital. Modern-day policies and best-practice standards are non-existent. As crisis nurses, we did what we are trained to do; don our gear and get to work. Serving the people of Elmhurst wasn’t about combating COVID-19. It was about combating a culture of neglect and malpractice.”
Beyond Olszewski, other whistleblowers have come forward, including those under Federal Whistleblower protection working with attorney Thomas Renz as described below.
The portion of all this that resonated with me was not the truth about how effective early treatments like HCQ and IVM are, although by now, everyone in America and most of the world should know this.
The most important part was not even that the vaccines are associated with numerous deaths and adverse events; most people know about the US VAERS reports, the UK Yellow Card, and Dr. Robert Malone’s Physician Declarations I and II outlining these. See mark 37:40.
The key message was not even that the vaccines are ineffective. This has already been clearly shown by looking at the least vaccinated countries enjoying a 100 times lower per capita COVID death rate than the most vaccinated.
What stood out most to me was the parallel with Nazi Germany.
Our hospitals have become the modern-day equivalents of the Nazi Concentration Camps. The Gestapo has morphed into our CDC and NIH giving orders for the transport of all COVID patients to a central location, the hospital, for “processing.” The sick and elderly, those not young and healthy, are much more likely to die in the hospitals, and the same was true of Auschwitz, where the old were summarily executed, while the young and strong were saved as slaves.
To ensure that as many as possible become sick enough to require hospitalization, all early treatment is forbidden or discouraged. And when a doctor attempts to administer it, they are censored and punished. This punishment may take the form of public ridicule, termination of employment, or even loss of license.
Never before have doctors been disciplined for saving lives. Drs. George Fareed and Brian Tyson saved 7,000 patients using early outpatient treatment, published a book, and earned the devotion and admiration of the Imperial Valley in Southern California. Fareed, a former Harvard Medical School Professor and NIH researcher, gave a United States Senate Committee testimony about his findings.
Yet recently they were demonized in the Los Angeles Times for offering “unproven” medical care. The Timesquoted Dr. Adolphe Edward, CEO of El Centro Regional Medical Center, who stated, “We need to stick with what we know is approved by the FDA for COVID-19 treatments…Misinformation itself ought to be stopped. Enough is enough.”
Maybe Dr. Adolphe Edward conveniently “forgot” what happened after he begged for help from anyone because he sounded the Imperial Valley alarm in June 2020. The situation was said to be so dire at his hospital, El Centro Regional Medical Center, that he stated, “If we keep patients here, we will overwhelm the hospital.”
I recall what happened because I wrote that article. Between Tyson and Fareed, they tested upwards of 20,000 patients, treating 1900 with their Zelenko protocol, a five-day course of HCQ, Zinc, and Azithromycin. Not a single patient who received the protocol died, and only one became sick enough to require hospitalization.
So I say to Dr. Adolphe Edward that he has some nerve to dare call Dr. George Fareed and Dr. Brian Tyson spreaders of “misinformation.” He is the hospital leader and exemplifies just how evil and corrupt these captured institutions have become. How many patients with COVID has his hospital lost? I will bet it’s more than zero. And how much extra did his hospital get paid for each COVID case that used Remdesivir? That used a ventilator. That died?
According to Dr. Vliet’s information obtained through whistleblowers, our hospitals are paid extra when patients die from COVID. Dr. Vliet observed, “COVID patients in American hospitals today are being treated worse than prisoners in an American jail. They have no visitation rights. No right to decide their treatment. They are refused basic fluids, nutraceuticals, and nutrients.” See marks 14:00 and 20:20.
Dr. Vliet described harrowing experiences in trying to free patients from the hospital. One of her patients was told by staff, “If you leave, you are going to die.” See mark 16:26.
As she explained, it is often necessary to assemble a team involving local police, an attorney, and other family members to successfully liberate a loved one from an overbearing hospital. But, as has come to light by multiple whistleblowers, the hospital gets paid more money when they agree to treat a patient with Remdesivir and nothing else.
Because Ivermectin or HCQ can jeopardize reimbursement, they are frowned upon. While all roads in the outpatients may lead to the vaccine, all roads in the hospital lead to the ventilator. Despite our knowledge now and the hospitals’ knowledge that ventilators can do serious harm to delicate COVID-infected lungs, many were placed on them, and most died as a result. See mark 37:00.
Dr. Vliet cited a report from Texas showing an 84.9% rate of death in COVID-19 patients who remain on the ventilator for more than 96 hours. See mark 36:30.
Yet why are so many placed on the ventilator? What could the apparent agenda have been? Although almost 30% of those who receive Remdesivir die, and the normal dose retails for $ 3,100, is it only about money? Or is there something more sinister?
Dr. Lee Vliet felt it has to do with Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel’s policies, the brother of President Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanual. Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel is widely recognized as the chief architect of Obama Care.
According to Dr. Vliet, his theme is to ration and remove health care for the elderly or those over age 50, in an effort to conserve scarce Medicare dollars. The theme is to decrease the outflow of Medicare dollars on the elderly and infirm, to make medicine “more efficient.”
“The only conclusion you can come to is that they (the hospitals) are doing it knowingly, and they are doing it because they are paid to do so, and the goal is to eliminate older people, to reduce the Medicare expenses,” Vliet said. See mark 37:23.
Dr. Lee Vliet, advocates staying clear of the hospital whenever possible. She refers to American hospitals as having become “death camps” in the era of COVID. See mark 42:44.
Avoiding this means staying healthy, keeping your Vitamin D levels up, and getting early treatment at the first sign of COVID-19. She has a website where the reader can download a free booklet containing her best recommendations and a list of telemedicine doctors.
For those who must enter the hospital, Dr. Vliet advised getting a durable power of attorney for healthcare in place. You must have an advocate, one who can monitor what the hospital is doing to you when you are perhaps sedated or otherwise incapacitated while hospitalized. In addition, she advised that a patient write out a statement of what they want and do not want while in the hospital.
This could be as simple as, “I do not want Remdesivir,” or “I want the medications that I have been taking at home to be continued, including Vitamin D3, Zinc, Quercetin, and Ivermectin.”
Dr. Vliet noted, “They have to continue the medications you were already taking at home.” In the case of Ivermectin, knowing this tidbit could save you the cost of a lawyer and having to get a court order. Then there is always the option of checking out of the hospital or getting a transfer- provided you are medically stable.
Why is the government, through the FDA, CDC, NIH, and Medicare paying bounties on diagnosis, ventilator placement, and even deaths of COVID patients? With scarce Medicare dollars spent freely on incentives, it cannot be about saving Medicare dollars.
However, with the exuberant spending on drugs like Remdesivir, and the high rate of death in those older than 50, perhaps there is a broader agenda. Dr. Peter Breggin authored a 600-page book with over 1,000 references, and he explains that the COVID-19 pandemic was planned, beginning as early as 2010 by Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab.
Breggin discussed Gates’ CEPI program as dovetailing with Klaus Schwab’s WEF program for global rule.
CEPI stands for the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, which Gates conceived in 2015. Breggin wrote in his book that the master plan was developed by Gates and Schwab at the World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting held at Davos in 2016. It was showcased at Davos in the 2017 WEF with at least two video presentations.
The decade of 2010 was thus to be declared the “Decade of the Vaccine,” and Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates were to join forces to make this a reality.
Breggin and Vliet discuss the science of Immunologic sterilization, a concept that has been employed in previous infamous vaccine deployments in Africa and India. As Dr. Vliet noted, “The government of India sued him (Gates) for sterilizing young women in their country.” See mark 38:50.
Vliet observed that the nanoparticles in the mRNA vaccines are known to have an affinity for the ovaries and testes; thus, they can impair long-term fertility. See mark 38:15.
Breggin noted that Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, and Communist China have aligned and seem to be behind this planned pandemic. Beyond population reduction and hospital profiteering, the overriding goal appears to be power and a global coup d’etat, the takeover of a nation or nations by either stealth or force.
Ours is now occurring by deception and censorship. However, thanks to multiple whistleblowers, the truth is quickly emerging.
Attorney Thomas Renz has accumulated a team of these, and this is how Dr. Vliet learned of hospitals being paid “bounties” for finding and killing COVID patients. In addition, Renz has found a whistleblower from Pfizer who supplied a critical document, a true smoking gun, that revealed what many scientists, including Dr. Michael Yeadon, already knew: the mRNA vaccines do not work. And Pfizer and the FDA knew it.
They do not prevent infection, and they do not prevent transmission. The smoking gun document shows they ENHANCE infection. See mark 17:37.
Yes, an internal document from Pfizer- an FDA briefing document entitled Vaccines and Related Biologic Products Advisory Committee Meeting September 17, 2021 stated, although not independently verified by FDA, “The post hoc analysis appeared to indicate that the incidence of SARS-CoV-2 during the analysis period among 18,727 study participants originally randomized to BNT162b2 (mean of 9.8 months post-Dose 2 at the beginning of the analysis period) was 70.3 cases per 1,000 person-years, compared with an incidence of 51.6 cases per 1,000 person-years among 17,748 study participants originally randomized to placebo and crossed over to BNT 162b2 (mean of 4.7 months post-Dose 2 at the beginning of the analysis period).”
An additional analysis appeared to indicate that incidence of COVID-19 generally increased in each group of study participants with increasing time post-Dose 2 at the start of the analysis period. Only 3 severe COVID–19 cases were reported during the analysis period, all of which occurred among study participants originally randomized to BNT 162b2.
Since 70.3 cases in the vaccine group is larger than 50.6 cases in the placebo group, and since the sample sizes are sufficiently large, there is NO DOUBT that the vaccine is associated with a higher rate of infection, not a lower. The FDA got this memo and apparently reviewed it before updating this statement on the official US FDA website on October 20, 2021. This is how it the FDA document reads:
How did the FDA arrive at the decision to approve Comirnaty (COVID-19 Vaccine mRNA)? What is different now when compared to the December 2020 authorization of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine?
Follow-up data from this ongoing clinical trial was analyzed by FDA to determine the safety and effectiveness of Comirnaty. The updated analysis to determine effectiveness for individuals 16 years of age and older included approximately 20,000 Comirnaty and 20,000 placebo recipients who did not have evidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection through seven days after the second dose. Overall, the vaccine was 91% effective, with 77 cases of COVID-19 occurring in the vaccine group and 833 COVID-19 cases in the placebo group.
There is no mention of the increased rate of infection reported to the FDA in the Pfizer memo.
You do not need to be an attorney or a doctor to interpret what is happening here. You need only common street smarts and the ability to spot a good con when you see one. For those of you who still trust Pfizer and the FDA, recall what Dr. Peter McCullough with his extensive expertise as an academic physician who has sat on many FDA safety panels, said when he read that some 1600 deaths had been recorded following vaccination as of early 2021, that the FDA couldn’t possibly conclude this so quickly.
“It is impossible for unnamed regulatory doctors without any experience with COVID-19 to opine that none of the deaths were related to the vaccine.”
The FDA responded that “none” of these deaths were related to the vaccine despite the fact that 24% occurred within 48 hours and 16% within 24 hours.
“So, I think this was effectively a scrubbing, like we’ve seen elsewhere … We’re sitting on, right now, the biggest number of vaccine deaths [and] there’s been tens of thousands of hospitalizations, all attributable to the vaccine, and [we’re still] going strong,” McCullough said.
I wasn’t born yesterday, and most of my readers were not either. Nevertheless, we have been had, and it could get much worse if we all don’t wake up immediately.
Attorney Renz gave a blockbuster presentation showcasing his whistleblower evidence, and clearly, he has more than enough to convince a court.
Watch another video showcasing yet another Renz whistleblower, and you begin to see how powerful the evidence has become.
Here is evidence from Pfizer’s internal documents supporting what Dr. Michael Yeadon, a former Pfizer chief scientist, reported that the vaccine was not a vaccine but a gene therapy. See mark 23:02.
Attorney Renz reminds the audience that court cases take years, and we do not have years. He advises that we either let them get away with this or resist. And it might get uncomfortable. Some might lose their jobs while others might not be able to travel.
But if we all end up with a vaccine passport under a Marxist Rule by Schwab, Gates, and China, we will end up losing everything, including the right to sue.
Imagine that you receive the following text on your cell phone:
Your cell phone service has been suspended if you have received this message because your vaccine passport has expired. To restore service, we require you to schedule an appointment with a registered vaccination site. Upon proof of your vaccination passport reinstatement, we will restore your cell phone service.
If we do not want to live in such a world of digital totalitarian control, Renz suggests we resist now. Now is the time we still can prevent our lives from being taken over by our government. Of course, if we all refuse the vaccines and object to vaccine passports, the above cannot happen. They need us to cooperate in creating our own digital ankle bracelets. But if we refuse, they cannot force us under our existing US Constitution.
However, if we give in, they can later change our system of government once they have established the vaccine passports and full control. Once Liberty is lost, it is never restored.
Do not submit to the vaccine passports.
Renz suggests we honor our forefathers, including all those willing to be uncomfortable as they fought in wars to ensure our freedom and way of life. We owe it to them and our children to keep this nation free.
Dr. Lee Vliet said, “This is your life. Your life is God’s gift to you. It is NOT the governments to control. That’s the fundamental idea that made America different from Marxism, Communism, Socialism…and everything else. The government does not own you. You have the right to your bodily integrity and the right to decide what you want to do with your life.
Bringing light and hope into the world is the Judeo-Christian tradition, and you have a responsibility in that David had the stones in his pouch to slay Goliath, but he would not have succeeded if he had not used them. And you have to use your mind; you have to use your intellect, your action plan…We have an early treatment guide…options to stay out of the hospital which are death camps… and save your life.” See mark 41:20 to 42:50.
When the leading vaccine makers lie to us and are accused of violations of the Nuremberg Code, and hospitals are accused – with good evidence – of being modern Death Camps, we all NEED a wake-up call.
And when the government’s main propaganda outlet applauds one of those accused of such crimes against humanity as a “CEO of the Year,” it is time to take corrective action.
The whistleblowers tarnished Ford’s Pinto, and this is what led to reform. Whistleblowers are an evil corporation’s worst nightmare. Whistleblowers led to Ford’s disgraceful and very public trials – and they will most assuredly unravel this coordinated attack on our democracy.
It wasn’t the money that scared them but the prospect of a criminal conviction. Now, more than ever, we need criminal charges to be brought against the hospitals and those who have defrauded us out of our money, our health, our lives, and our freedom.
Now that many know the truth, it is a contest between those globalists calling the shots and us. It is a race to see who accomplishes their goal first. They win if they can get almost everyone vaccinated and given a number and a vaccine passport.
We win if we can get the truth out in time for enough people to refuse. If we win, they go to prison, and we get our rights and freedoms back. If they win, the population becomes enslaved under total digital surveillance and totalitarian control. Imagine if Hitler had won the Second World War. Imagine if China, Gates, and Schwab win the COVID war.
Now is the time to resist. You can do this by sharing this article with everyone. Review and share ALL of the information contained on Dr. Lee Vliet’s website. It is a goldmine of lifesaving information.
Share Attorney Renz’s video.
Read Dr. Robert Malone’s powerful words in the link below. He invented mRNA vaccine technology regardless of what the “fact-checkers” may have told you. His name is on the patents. Therefore, he is in the best position to tell you the truth. Dr. Malone wrote, “Speak now, or you will be forced to forever hold your peace.”
And most importantly, remember Dr. Lee Vliet’s observation that David had the tools to defeat Goliath with those stones in his pouch. However, David would not have slain Goliath had he not used those tools. We Americans must now use our God-given tools to stop what is happening. We must all object and (peacefully) resist the vaccines and the mandates. We deserve our Freedom and Liberty.
Let us all live up to the Call to Action of President John Kennedy, who reminds us, “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of Liberty…”
In your hands my fellow citizens more than mine will rest the final success or failure of our course…
In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger…I do not shrink from this responsibility, I welcome it.
We all must work together to stop these crimes against humanity now occurring in our hospitals, nursing homes, and medical establishment. As Kennedy so eloquently put it, few generations in history bear such a great responsibility, and the final success or failure is NOW in each of our hands. Each of us should do something, whether it is saying no to a mandate, marching in protest, or sharing this information. What will you do?

There was a problem reporting this.
I have a very true story to share. A Woman that I help care for as well as everyone in the home including myself got symptoms of Sars Cov2 last June. She was hospitalized as she has Lung Cancer and had been recently been under chemotherapy treatments as well as many other underlying medical issues that compromised her immune system. She was first taken to the Local hospital where she tested positive and was treated like a Leper and sent home. Her symptoms had gotten worse as she was not sent home with any breathing treatments or any further medical advice. She was then taken to Another Hospital in Reno where she was Marked for Certain Death and her Family was not allowed to see her. Her wishes were always to die at home, not in a hospital. The family persisted in getting her home to die. The hospital was insistent that she would die on the way home, it would be gruesome and suggested she die there instead. The Family said they were willing to take that chance to fulfill her wishes and if they would send her off with the necessary oxygen machines that would be helpful. She came home. She was set up for hospice care for the next 5 weeks if needed. She could not feed herself, she had to be changed as she was completely helpless. That is not the condition they had sent her in. She was in their care for about 10 days. Within 3 days if being home, She could feed herself, go to the bathroom and communicate. She is still on oxygen almost 24/7 , however she is getting non radiation treatments for her cancer and is now in remission. If her Family had allowed her to stay in the hospital, she would have died within a week. They would have marked her Death Certificate Covid and that would have been it. Since they have just today taken my Grandfather off his ventilation which ended his life even though prior to this he was not sick and then suddenly he died from Covid, its time to speak up. It’s time to say No more. Money may buy some people happiness but it costs you your soul.
This article is irresponsible. There is a reason why people in conservative counties are dying at a much higher rate. Ivermectin has very little evidence for its use. It is being studied but there is only weak evidence. I am fine with giving it if someone really is adamant but isn’t it the new plaquenil? Same hype, not much evidence. My business partners brother spend 6 weeks face down on a vent despite all the magic drugs this minority of doctors tout. You have literally a handful of real critical care, virology or epidemiology doctors with this position Verses Mayo, Hopkins, Cleveland clinic, md anderson, and every major medical center in the western world as wealth as govt health dept. we are the only developed country without universal healthcare so the narrative it’s just about hospitals making money is hollow. Reallly hard to be a thinking person and a conservative these days.
The cited post-hoc analysis by Pfizer (https://www.fda.gov/media/152176/download) did not compare incidence rates of BNT162b2 treatment vs. placebo. The “other” group are those that were initially in the placebo group, that then received BNT162b2 after the blinding period was complete (1 month after 2nd shot).
The 70.3 vs 51.6 cases per 1,000 person-years is really comparing two groups that were “fully” vaxxed w/BNT162b2:
• 70.3 among those with 2nd shot an average of 9.8 months prior to analysis
• 51.6 among those with 2nd shot an average of 4.7 months prior to analysis (placebo group initially)
The interpretation is correct that the incidence of C19 ↑ with ↑ time post-Dose 2, i.e. weaking effectiveness of BNT162b2.
As a comparison, the placebo case rate can be found in Table 2 of the NEJM 2021-11-04 publication (https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2110345) on the Ph2/3 clinical trial data:
• 141.6 (850 cases per 6.003 1000 person-years).
My concern with these case rates is that they are defined on a PCR test result, not based on a diagnosis based on clinical symptoms or actual viral loads. And even more problematic is that they did not disclose the Cycle thresholds (Ct) values for the “positive” cases.
A Nov. 25, 2020 petition letter to the FDA to pause the clinical trials, by Dr. Sin Hang Lee, indicated that the 3 RT-PCR tests for the clinical trial were not comparable, that “Cepheid Xpert kits have classified many Abbott kit negative cases as positives” and that Ct values >40 from the GeneXpert assay were considered as positives.
If a clinical trial for a cancer drug showed that the drug ↓ a cancer biomarker and did not ↓ cancer lesions and/or improved symptoms, it would never get approved by the FDA.
