Coronavirus Covid-19 Research History – April 1 to April 5, 2022

2022-04-05 CNN Misleads Parents, Follows Mainstream Script to Push Vaccines for Young Kids Mainstream media is following a tried-and-true script to push vaccine uptake. Now that COVID-19 vaccines are authorized for children ages 5 to 11, we can expect more disingenuous and misleading commentary designed to reinforce the “safe and effective” messaging — this time our children are the targets.

2022-04-05 70% of COVID Cases Among CDC Employees in August 2021 Were in Vaccinated Employees Data obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that approximately 70% of all COVID cases among CDC employees in August 2021 occurred among “vaccinated” employees.

2022-04-05 West Virginia Removes Dozens of Deaths From COVID Count West Virginia has removed dozens of deaths from its official COVID-19 count after a review found nearly all of them were not related to the coronavirus, health officials said Tuesday. The Department of Health and Human Resources said Bureau for Public Health epidemiologists completed what it called a reconciliation process for 2021 that looks at all COVID-19 death reports. Of the 3,948 deaths reported in 2021, 122 deaths, or 3%, were determined not to be virus-related. In addition, five duplicate deaths from last year were identified during the reconciliation process and three additional deaths from 2020 were determined not to be from COVID-19 and taken off the state’s dashboard.

2022-04-05 COVID Vaccines Will Soon Be Available for Kids Under 5. Experts Worry Many Parents Won’t See the Need. What’s worse for public health officials staring down a possible new wave of infections from another Omicron subvariant called BA.2 is the fear other parents won’t see a need to get their kids vaccinated when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorizes it for children under age 5, as soon as April. ​​The percentage of fully vaccinated Americans has stagnated at about two-thirds. Just under half of those eligible have gotten a booster dose. Federal regulators authorized a second booster last week for older and immunocompromised people, but it’s unclear how many people will want those either. Children remain the least protected with about 35% of parents of those aged 5 to 11 choosing to vaccinate their kids since they became eligible in November. Children have largely weathered the virus, with about 12 million reported cases and fewer than 1,000 deaths. But 5 million of youth cases have been recorded so far in 2022 alone, boosting the number of hospitalizations. Long-term effects remain unknown.

2022-04=05 ‘Pitchforks Are Coming:’ Iversen Predicts Public Unrest if Inflation Continues Political commentator Kim Iversen warned rising corporate profits combined with higher prices and empty shelves will create a consumer backlash against corporations and fundamentally change the way the people view the government.

2022-04-05 Pfizer Hired 600+ People to Process Vaccine Injury Reports, Documents Reveal Pfizer hired about 600 additional full-time employees to process adverse event reports during the three months following authorization of its COVID-19 vaccine, with plans to hire 1,800 more by June 2021, newly released documents reveal.

Remarking upon this newly revealed information, Brian Hooker, chief scientific officer of Children’s Health Defense, told The Defender: “The rollout of the Pfizer vaccine has led to an unprecedented number of adverse events reported — 158,000 adverse events in the first two-plus months of the rollout means that the rate of reported AE [adverse events] was approximately 1:1000, with many of the AEs graded as serious. This is based on a denominator of 125,000,000 vaccines distributed. “It is no wonder that an army of 1,800 individuals was needed to process all of the information.”

Hooker noted the total number (1,205,755) of COVID vaccine adverse events reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System between Dec. 14, 2020 and March 25, 2022, now eclipses the total number (930,952) of adverse events reported in the 32-year history of the database.

Is Postmaster General Getting Rich Off COVID Test Giveaway? As part of a government program established this year, the U.S. Postal Service is distributing free COVID-19 test kits to the public — an initiative that could add to the personal wealth of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.

2022-04-04 COVID Vaccines Don’t Prevent Transmission, Severe Illness or Deaths, Data Show All we have to do is look at high-quality epidemiological data to get to the truth — COVID-19 vaccines aren’t preventing COVID or its transmission, and they aren’t preventing severe illness or death.

2022-04-04 As Many as 40% of Those Who Died of COVID Had Diabetes and Experts Hope That Will Lead Policymakers to Address the Disease Somewhere between 30% to 40% of those who died from COVID-19 in the U.S. had diabetes, and health experts are hoping that could lead policymakers to pay more attention to the disease, The New York Times reported. “It’s hard to overstate just how devastating the pandemic has been for Americans with diabetes,” Dr. Giuseppina Imperatore, who oversees diabetes prevention and treatment at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told the paper in a story published on Sunday. According to data from the National Institute of Health, diabetes draws less funding than diseases like cancer and heart disease despite impacting 37 million Americans. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention found that the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes more than doubled in the past 20 years and 96 million Americans have prediabetes.

2022-04-04 Boston University COVID Testing Policy Violated Americans With Disabilities Act, CHD Lawsuit Alleges Children’s Health Defense and attorney Robert Meltzer of the Mountain States Law Group are suing Boston University on behalf of a student who was suspended for failing to comply with the school’s COVID-19 testing protocol. The lawsuit alleges the university’s testing regimen failed to accommodate the student’s disability.

2022-04-04 We Need to Be Developing Vaccines for the Next Pandemic — Right Now While the COVID-19 vaccines were developed in record time — Moderna’s mRNA shot took just a weekend for its initial design — and extraordinary, innovative studies found effective treatments quickly as well, neither was fast enough to outrun the virus’s exponential growth. COVID-19 will not be the last disease with the potential to grow into a pandemic. To fight the next one, we need to have a game plan to speed up the search for and deployment of vaccines and treatments. Such a plan would launch research and development efforts targeting pathogens with pandemic potential, stand up an infrastructure to accelerate the testing of candidate vaccines and antivirals, and pump funding into both.

2022-04-04 FDA Says COVID Vaccines May Need to Be Updated to Ensure High Level of Effectiveness Against Virus The currently approved COVID-19 vaccines may need an update to ensure a high level of protection as the virus continues to evolve, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA, in a briefing document published ahead of an advisory committee meeting this week, said scientists still don’t entirely understand COVID variants and the effectiveness of the vaccines. For example, mutations to the spike protein, which is used by the virus to invade human cells, have reduced the effectiveness of current vaccines. That’s because today’s COVID shots were developed to target the spike protein in the original strain of the virus that emerged in Wuhan, China in late 2019. The FDA’s advisory committee of outside vaccine experts on Wednesday will discuss how the U.S. can develop a transparent process to make recommendations about changing the composition of the current ones if needed. Pfizer and Moderna are conducting clinical trials on vaccines based on the Omicron variant, the dominant version of the virus worldwide. The effectiveness of Pfizer or Moderna’s two-dose vaccines against mild illness from Omicron dropped from 70% to just 10% 25 weeks after the second shot, according to the U.K. Health Security Agency.

2022-4-04 How Pandemic Caused Long Delays in Diagnosis, Treatment for Kids With Autism During the early months of the pandemic, many families canceled in-home services, fearing infection. Virtual therapy often didn’t seem to work, especially for nonverbal and younger children. With fewer clients, some providers laid off staff or shut down entirely.

2022-04-04 Prominent EU Activists Arrested, Harrassed for Opposing COVID Mandates Officials in France and The Netherlands last month arrested and detained two prominent activists involved in initiatives opposing COVID-19-related restrictions and mandatory vaccination policies.

2022-04-01 Mega-Rich Got So Much Richer During Pandemic the English Language Didn’t Have a Word to Describe Them The word “billionaire” didn’t even exist until 1844. Fifty years later, we got “multibillionaire,” and for the next 127 years, that was enough. But in 2020, the rich got so much wealthier, we needed a new word: “centibillionaires.”

2022-04-01 ‘Not Surprising to See, but Sad’: Experts Alarmed by Large Number of Teens Experiencing Emotional Abuse The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new statistics on high school students’ mental health. Among its findings was an alarmingly high number of U.S. teens reporting emotional abuse at home: more than half. Defined by the survey as being sworn at, insulted or put down by a parent or other adult in their home, 55 percent of the more than 7,700 high school students polled said they had experienced emotional abuse. The survey responses, which were collected in the first half of 2021, asked about experiences in 2020, which included the height of pandemic-related lockdowns.

2022-04-01 Class-Action Lawsuit Challenges Firing of 66 Unvaccinated Workers at Akron Children’s Hospital Akron Children’s Hospital is “confident” that its firing of dozens of unvaccinated employees will withstand a federal class-action lawsuit. And the attorney making a First Amendment issue of the matter is already preparing for an appeal. The lawsuit names two lead plaintiffs: certified surgical technologist Brian Tessane and help desk worker Richard Brimer. Tessane worked five years at Akron Children’s Hospital and Tessane for two years before each was let go in late January, about two weeks after missing the hospital’s deadline for all staff members to get their initial COVID-19 vaccine shot. The plaintiffs, according to the lawsuit, were denied “reasonable accommodations” due to their Christian faith. Mendenhall said his clients were ultimately forced “to choose between violating their sincerely held religious beliefs or losing their jobs.”

2022-04-01 Fauci Flashback: ‘The Most Potent Vaccination Is Getting Infected Yourself’ Throughout the pandemic, a large contingency of doctors, researchers and non-mainstream media outlets have been pounding the table over natural immunity as an alternative to vaccination to protect against COVID-19, with the obvious conclusion that vaccine passports are moot if a large percentage of the population has a higher degree of protection than even the vaccinated because they’ve already had the disease. And as time has gone on, ‘the science’ has validated this theory — with even Bill Gates admitting recently that “the virus itself, particularly the variant called Omicron, is a type of vaccine.” Yet, the official U.S. government response — led by Dr. Anthony Fauci and echoed worldwide — has excluded virtually all mention of natural immunity as a relevant mitigation against COVID-19, which would of course render vaccination, booster shots and vaccine passports moot for tens of millions of Americans. And so, with Fauci pretending like he’s never heard of natural immunity for the past two years, here’s a flashback to the ‘good doctor’ explaining that “The most potent vaccination is getting infected yourself.”

2022-04-01 17-Year-Old Died ‘Suddenly in Sleep’ 6 Months After 2nd Pfizer Shot VAERS data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention included a total of 1,205,755 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 26,396 deaths and 214,521 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020, and March 25, 2022.

2022-04-01 FDA Weighing Moderna Vax for Kids 6 and Under, But Experts Say Trials Inadequate Moderna plans to seek authorization for its pediatric COVID-19 vaccine for kids 6 and under, but experts say the vaccine maker’s trials for the young age group raise too many questions.
