Icealand is a unique country with active volcanoes, Geysers, hot springs and glaciers. It has also one the highest vaccination rates in the world; 83 % of the whole population has received at least one dose by Nov 13, and 81.0 percent are fully vaccinated. Already early June over 50% of the population had received at least one dose of vaccination; so they are now six months into what can be called fully vaccinated, since 7.8% of the population are not eligible, being children under 12 years of age.
How are they doing?
Iceland was doing remarkably well until May of 2021, when most people got their doses of vaccine, and cases fell to near zero during June and July, which “proved” the efficacy of the vaccine until August when cases suddenly rose again and were on Nov 11 more than twice as many as the highest daily total before vaccinations began.
It turns out that the vaccine they have received is not a vaccine in the old definition of vaccine, something that grants immunity to the disease, so CDC has changed the definition of vaccine to mean something that lessens the symptoms of the disease. So all vaccinated people have now the capacity to become “typhoid Marys” keeping reinfecting each other, both vaccinated and unvaccinated.
Are Icelanders allowed to take Ivermectin against COVID-19? Probably not. One person was hospitalized using Soolandra a skin care product whose active ingridient is 1% Ivermectin. He ingested an unknown amount and the medical community sent out a warning against using Soolantra even though the warning to not ingest it is right on the package. People get desperate when Ivermectin is forbidden in tablet form, they even swallow horsepaste Ivermectin even though the formulation for horses is quite different from the tablet form for people.
The good news is that even though infection rates have skyrocketed, deaths rates have fallen.
I am still of the opinion that it is better to cure the disease using HydroxyChloroQuine or Ivermectin together with Zinc and an anti inflammatory drug and thus control the disease than having to take booster shots for ever and remain “Typhoid Marys”.
