Are COVID vaccines failing? Recent statistics from Scotland seem to tell us so.

When the COVID vaccines were approved as experimental for emergency use one week after the U.S. 2020 election the claim was that they were 05% effective in preventing COVID, a result that seemed too good to be true, since flu vaccines, fully approved were only about 50% effective, even if they had guessed right on the strain of the year. So, vaccines started to be administered at a breathtaking rate. The initial response seemed to be very good. But their evvectiveness vaned ofer time, so a booster seemed necessary, still experimental.

The original claim: If you are vaccinated you will not get COVID. Recent statistics from Scotland seems to indicate otherwise:

Truth: The vaccinated get COVID at a higher rate than the unvaccinated

Claim number two: If people still get COVID after vaccination they will rarely get hospitalized. Recent results from Scotland:

The truth: Hospitalizations are on the increase for immunized people getting COVID. Which leads to

Claim number three: If you are fully vaccinated and still get COVID and still get hospitalized your risk of dying is greatly reduced, Even that is not true according to latest statistics from Scotland.

The truth: With the new Omicron variant people seem to die at the same or higher rate if vaccinated.

In addition there has been over 20,000 deaths occurring after vaccine injections. It is time to halt all COVID vaccinations until a thorough analysis of all vaccine related deaths has been performed. Since the death rate is still less than one in ten thousand the vulnerable should still be allowed to be vaccinated until we have developed a true prophylactic/therapeutic. There are many candidates: Ivermectin, HCQ, Regeneron. Pfizer and Moderna work on what I cal Pfizermectin and Modernactin. They work the same way as Ivermectin but use different acting molecules, more specific for the current strain of COVID, so they may work even better and cost a lot more, so they will be approved quickly.

With over 116 million COVID-19 cases in the world, how is USA doing compared to the rest of the world?

 

The table below shows that USA came in as number 28 of the 40 countries with the largest outbreak of the Wuhan virus. This table reflects the first 40 days of the new U.S. administration. Most countries have a declining death rate, with the notable exceptions of Mexico, South Africa, Germany, United Kingdom, Colombia, Poland, Romania, France, Spain, Pakistan, Russia, Portugal, Ukraine, Iraq, and the United States of America.

Good news on the corona-virus. Death rates are down drastically in most countries. Sweden is now a leader in COVID recovery.

The Corona-virus pandemic has now been with us half a year and for the first time the trends ate looking better, giving us hope that the worst is over.

In the beginning the worldwide death rate was 8,65% and it is now down to 2.23%, a reduction of 74.2%. Total deaths worldwide are about 700,000 which is still less then the annual TB deaths that amount to 1.6 million, of which 300,000 are HIV positive.

The corresponding numbers for U.S.A :  7.02%  death rate at the beginning of the disease. Ir is now down to 1.84%, a 74% decrease. With unrestricted availability to take HCQ+ we can reduce the death rate even further.

Now it is getting interesting. While nearly all industrialized nations shut down their non-essential functions, such as schools, elective surgery, elective medical diagnostics, non food stores, flights, travel, restaurants, non essential government services and the like Sweden took a different approach. They kept their elementary schools open, did not close stores and restaurants, only mandated increased hygiene and practice social distancing, and then they let the virus rage as a normal flu, and waited for the so called “herd immunity.” Sweden did their best. though to protect the vulnerable.

In the beginning the results were disastrous. The initial death rate was over 21%, it seemed  like a failed attempt, but then things started to calm down. In late spring the death rate had settled down to 9.2%, but then came a second wave of cases and everyone was bracing for the worst. But the death rate  did not rise, and is now down to 0.41%. Let the charts speak for themselves:

New cases do not disappear altogether, they may even rise as sporting events and large gatherings resume.

Deaths are way down. Maybe “herd immunity”  is achieved? Time will tell.

The death charts from Sweden gives me hope, even for a state like Florida. It escaped the early peak of cases, the most vulnerable were protected, so the max death rate was held at 7.74%. In June the teal wave of cases came, and was climbing until mid July, after which the daily new cases have declined. The deaths were rising until Aug 1, after which they too will follow the Swedish decline and “herd immunity will be reached in three months, if personal hygiene and social distancing protocols are still obeyed.  Here are the charts for Florida:

 

These charts follow the Swedish charts, but with a 3 month delay.
