Coronavirus: WHO backflips on virus stance by condemning lockdowns The World Health Organisation has backflipped on its original COVID-19 stance after calling for world leaders to stop locking down their countries and economies. Dr. David Nabarro from the WHO appealed to world leaders yesterday, telling them to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method” of the coronavirus. He also claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved. “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” he said. “We in the World Health Organisation do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Dr Nabarro told The Spectator. “The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganise, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.” Dr Nabarro’s main criticism of lockdowns involved the global impact, explaining how poorer economies that had been indirectly affected. “Just look at what’s happened to the tourism industry in the Caribbean, for example, or in the Pacific because people aren’t taking their holidays,” he said.
Where Does The Trump Administration Stand On Herd Immunity? Last week, Secretary Azar of the Department of Health and Human Services testified before Congress that “herd immunity is not the strategy of the U.S. government.” Yet, frequently the Trump Administration’s rhetoric tells a different story; for example, Trump’s statement several weeks ago that “herd mentality,” presumably referencing herd immunity, would protect against coronavirus. The Administration’s recent actions on the ground belie its claims of not advancing a herd immunity policy. Adding Scott Atlas to the White House Coronavirus Task Force in August reinforced the idea that changes in policy direction were imminent. Atlas is a herd immunity advocate, and his ideas have gained traction in the White House, where he’s advising the President. Absent a vaccine, herd immunity implies that sufficient numbers of people become immune to a disease, such as Covid-19, to make its spread less and less likely. As a result, over time the entire community is protected, even those who are not themselves immune.
Great Barrington Declaration: COVID Lockdowns Unnecessary Great Barrington Declaration: “Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open.”The lockdowns of society and the cold stop of the world’s economy in the face of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) represents a huge mistake, argue some prestigious scientists in the world of epidemiology. The Great Barrington Declaration, released last week by scientists who argue that most of us should return to our pre-COVID ways of life, has generated a lot of attention and controversy.The declaration is spearheaded by some heavy hitters in the scientific community including Martin Kulldorff, PhD, an epidemiologist at Harvard University, Sunetra Gupta, PhD, an epidemiologist at Oxford University, and Jay Bhattacharya, MD, PhD, a public health policy expert who focuses on infectious diseases and who is a professor at Stanford University.One of the arguments put forth by the three and about 35 cosigners amounts to saying that the cure has been worse than the disease for society as a whole.“Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people,” the declaration states. “Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health—leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice.”
Dr. Lyons-Weiler: If You Intend to Reproduce Do Not Fly – The Chemicals Used to Disinfect Airplanes Decrease Fertility and Are Epigenetically Teratogenic Adding to the massive self-injuries society is inflicting upon itself in response to COVID19, as airlines police the public to mask, there is strong evidence that they are also poisoning their employees and passengers and harming their reproductive health. Two studies in mice indicate that both female and male airline employees who work in cabins in airplanes and frequent flyers are also at risk of reproductive health issues and including increased risk of fetal death and neural tube defects in their infants. The first study, entitled “Exposure to common quaternary ammonium disinfectants decreases fertility in mice” would not receive much attention were it not for COVID19. I expect it will now gain a lot of attention. Quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) are antimicrobial disinfectants currently in use by commerical airlines to disinfect airplanes between flights. The closed-in cabins lead to conditions perfect to replicate the conditions of the study – prolonged, chronic exposure to a mixture led to evidence of synergistic toxicity. The study found decreased reproductive performance in laboratory mice following long-term, chronic exposure to a disinfectant containing both alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (ADBAC) and didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (DDAC). Worse, QACs were detected in the caging material for several months following the end of the exposure period. Breeding pairs of mice that had been exposed for six months to a QAC disinfectant exhibited decreases in fertility (the ability to reproduce) and fecundity (the number of offspring).
Questions of The Day!
I heard your quest speaking about vitamin D3, my computer was not working properly consequently I could not hear everything he was saying; was he saying not to take too much of the vit D3? Also Ben Fuchs many times has said to get your vit D from the sun–pill form not so great–what do you think of using a full spectrum sun lamp to get vitamin D?
Thank you Bill
I have some questions about the exosome theory of viruses that I just can’t resolve. I totally understand how the terrain relates to disease – ie. how severe your symptoms will be, if any. But, why can’t both the germ theory and exosome theory be in play? I just don’t see why the existence of one means the other can’t exist. And here are 3 reasons why I just can’t dismiss the germ theory (yet I can still agree exosomes/the terrain contribute to disease expression as well):
1. Dr. Semmelweiss – did he not show that simple hand washing drastically reduced the transmission of “germs” from a doctor’s hands that were then infecting and even causing death of postpartum mothers?
2. Measles, mumps and chicken pox parties. Children did get infected at these gatherings, that was the whole point. Yet, understanding that some resulting infections may not have been as severe as others due to the terrain issue. But these parties were specifically held because the viruses were contagious. And please don’t say those children would have gotten the measles anyway, as if it were just a coincidence that they came down with it right after attending a party. You know what that would sound like! LOL. And lastly,
3. Genital herpes. A virgin will NEVER get genital herpes. You only get it by having sex with an infected person.
I’m sure there are other examples, but these are a few that have occurred to me as I’ve been mulling over the issue. I get a little frustrated when I hear you say the germ theory is an antiquated understanding of disease, and the exosome theory is it. Maybe I’m misunderstanding your viewpoint?
Comment of The Day!
Have you ever discussed how some facilities in S. California require covid testing & quarantine until the day of surgery (my surgery is a tooth extraction — not open heart surgery!). I had no idea & living this madness right now. I had to be covid tested last Friday 10/2, otherwise I would not have been able to have a consultation with my oral surgeon — for a consult! I was tested and of course was negative. Tooth extraction is schedule next Tues., 10/13, so was required to be covid tested again. Never mind, I’m working and having to layer on unnecessary steps & shocked that another test was needed & you are quarantined until surgery or surgery will be cancelled. The woman I spoke to sounded like a prison guard & I told her so. It was outrageous. She actually apologized. In addition, was not allowed to be tested at urgent care (close to me), it had to be at their facility. Again, I’m working & now have a further drive. Bottomline…none of this should be happening now & to be locked down is control that cannot continue in the future. For obvious reasons, I’m in the process of selling my condo & moving to AZ. Screw California!

AAP Wants Children Enrolled in COVID-19 Vaccine Clinical Trials The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is asking federal officials to include children in COVID-19 vaccine trials.1 On September 29, 2020, Sara Goza, MD, president of the AAP, wrote a letter addressed to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Steven Hahn, MD stating, “Children must be included in vaccine trials to best understand any potential unique immune responses and/or unique safety concerns.”2 Currently, none of the COVID-19 vaccines in clinical development are being tested in children under the age of 18 years.3 The letter goes on to state, “It would also be less than desirable to have one or more SARS-CoV-2 vaccines licensed or available under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) at a time when no data have been collected on the safety, tolerability, dose, and regimen for children.”4 The AAP is also asking federal officials to include individuals in the trials who reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of the U.S. population and include pregnant women and individuals with underlying poor health conditions.5
Dual Coronavirus-Flu Vaccine to Start Human Trials Human trials of an experimental nasal spray vaccine for both the new coronavirus and seasonal flu are scheduled to start early next month, Hong Kong researchers say. The early-stage trails of the dual vaccine — which is meant to trigger an immune response in the nose’s mucous membrane — will enroll about 100 volunteers, the Washington Post reported. The experimental vaccine is one of dozens of coronavirus vaccines under development worldwide, but apparently the first to also guard against the flu. Public health experts have warned that the combination of the coronavirus pandemic and flu season could overwhelm hospitals, the Post reported.
Coronavirus May Stay for Weeks on Banknotes and Touchscreens The new coronavirus may remain infectious for weeks on banknotes, glass and other common surfaces, according to research by Australia’s top biosecurity laboratory that highlights risks from paper currency, touchscreen devices and grab handles and rails. Scientists at the Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness showed SARS-CoV-2 is “extremely robust,” surviving for 28 days on smooth surfaces such as glass found on mobile phone screens and plastic banknotes at room temperature, or 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit). That compares with 17 days survival for the flu virus. Virus survival declined to less than a day at 40 degrees Celsius on some surfaces, according to the study, published in Virology Journal. The findings add to evidence that the Covid-19-causing coronavirus survives for longer in cooler weather, making it potentially harder to control in winter than summer. The research also helps to more accurately predict and mitigate the pandemic’s spread, the scientists said.
