A recent article published in prestigious scientific journal BMJ global health has questioned the effectiveness of vaccination mandates during the Covid-19 pandemic and pointed out their unintended consequences.
We are now well over two years into the Covid pandemic and heading into summer. At this point the Government has long-since dropped all the Covid mandates and told the public that we must “learn to live with Covid”; hospitality venues, bars and theatres are full of people socialising and enjoying themselves; face masks are now a far rarer sight in shops and on public transport; and there are more smiles and spontaneous hugs being seen in public.
hen in February, the JCVI recommended covid vaccines for children aged 5-11, they described it as a ‘non-urgent offer’. Reading the whole briefing document reflects how luke-warm the committee were about the importance of the vaccine young children.
In December 2021 Norman Fenton, Martin Neil, Clare Craig, Josh Geutzkow, Joel Smalley, Scott McLachlan and Jonathan Engler published an article casting doubt on the vaccine efficacy implied by the UK’s official mortality statistics as they related to vaccination status, raising miscategorisation of vaccinated deaths soon after injection as unvaccinated as a possible significant factor.
The Government’s decision to impose lockdown and introduce restrictions on movement led to the cessation of frontline and community services across health and social care within both adult and paediatric services.
It is over two years since the first lockdown and now more than a year since HART published its paper COVID-19: an overview of the evidence. We asked all the original authors to go back and review their article and update with relevant publications, revising their conclusions as appropriate.
Early in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the UK along with many other countries around the world tried to minimise the spread of new variants of the virus by limiting travel across borders. The then health secretary.
Evidence is now emerging that natural immunity to SARS Cov-2 from previous infection is as good if not better than any of the current genetic therapy vaccines. Indeed, previous infection by SARS Cov-2 creates a very robust immune response which is effective against many variants.
It is always salutary to re-read one’s words of a year ago, and to see how they have stood the test of time. What’s more, Devi Sridhar, a proponent of Zero Covid, recently wrote in the Guardian that we should all admit our mistakes…
Many readers of this bulletin may have heard a lot of concern being raised about “the new pandemic treaty” being proposed by the WHO. Fewer will have heard about a separate – but equally concerning – development: proposed changes to the “International Health Regulations” which, potentially, could “bite” very quickly.
As described in a previous HART bulletin, there has been a pervasive reluctance for the powers-that-be to discuss the questionable ethics of the covert behavioural-science techniques used by the Government throughout the covid-19 messaging campaign.
For those of us who have spent the last two years surveying unfolding events in dismay, these past few months have been a strange time. We witnessed the greatest imposition of restricted civil liberties ever seen in peacetime and observed with disbelief the supine (sometimes enthusiastic) response of media, political ‘opposition’, most institutions and public bodies, even in the face of ever-increasing evidence of the enormous societal cost.
There have been marked differences between the covid trajectories in Eastern and Western Europe; in particular Spring 2020, Spring 2021 and Autumn 2021 showed markedly different death rates (from covid).
Is no-one safe from the tentacles of the state’s propaganda machine? Can’t they just leave those kids alone? One of HART’s favourite children’s characters has been unwittingly – and we might say unethically – weaponised in a ‘drive by’ vaccine product placement advertisement.
HART has been one of many voices previously highlighting the evidence for the role of Vitamin D deficiency in preventing severe outcomes from Covid infections, and questioning why the very safe and cheap measure of ensuring adequate intake was being ignored.
