Are We Ready for the Next Pandemic?
Guest Post by Barry D. Murrell, Businessman and Independent Researcher, Cebu City, Philippines. Written 26 January 2023.
As the COVID19 pandemic wanes, efforts are now ongoing in the background to push forward legislation in all countries that would give carte blanche to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Economic Forum (WEF) to set policies and rules in future pandemics. These measures are based upon models used in the COVID19 pandemic.
In determining whether to support these, we need to carefully consider nine (9) critical observations that led to the failure of the worldwide COVID19 response and resulted in the unnecessary suffering and death of millions that occurred under the leadership of these non-elected officials. Are they worthy of our future trust and submission? Let us begin.
The country of origin for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, China, was not forthcoming with the initial data, consistently downplayed the effects of the virus, and confounded efforts to establish the details of its origin. In addition, they allowed travel abroad even though they knew this was a novel virus that needed caution and containment in order to isolate and determine its characteristics of infection and mortality. Through it all, the WHO completely mishandled things and allowed authorities in China to do and say whatever they wanted. Instead of taking the lead and demanding answers and transparency, they did nothing and to this day we still do not know how and where the virus started.
Because of the failure of the WHO to provide leadership, health authorities in countries all over the world panicked when they started seeing infections among their populations and data indicating a very high rate of transmission. They misinterpreted the infection mortality rate (IFR) because they had no idea that the actual infection rate was much higher than reported, which brought to their minds references to the “1918 Spanish Flu” in which some 50 million people died, thus fueling the panic. This led the WHO to recommend lockdowns and restrictions even without any verified IFR data or subsequent data showing these measures taken would be effective. Conclusions were hasty, biased, and arbitrary and anyone who questioned anything was quickly silenced. The WHO failed to provide useful data to governments.
To justify their actions, health authorities misrepresented the picture of lethality. They accentuated severe cases and fatalities, creating the allusion of a severe mortality picture when in fact their own data consistently showed that 98% or more of all persons infected with this new virus (including the variants) experienced an asymptomatic or mild illness. The fact that we never had an accurate count of the number of cases made it impossible to rely upon the published mortality rates and that gave the authorities the cover they needed to continue pushing their harsh restrictions. Proof of this can be seen in the fact that as time has passed, and increased testing and reporting of case figures surfaced, mortalities did not increase proportionally compared to early figures. In fact, the overall mortality rate has continually declined from an initial 4%-6% down to a little over 1%, and the mortality rate for Omicron and its subvariants by itself is well under 1%.
Seeing that the US CDC recognized early, announcing that to their best guess case figures were probably 8X to 10X higher than reported, the final mortality rate for the duration of the pandemic will most likely settle below 1% and end up somewhere within the mortality range of FLU. Health authorities failed miserably in this.
Deaths “from COVID19” were overreported. The majority of those tested in hospital were found to be there for something else and simply tested positive, with COVID19 having little or nothing to do with their hospitalization. However, the authorities and media did not differentiate between those hospitalized “with COVID” and those “because of COVID.” The same went for reporting COVID19 as a cause of death. It was far too easy for people to declare a death to be “from Covid” without any clinical evidence in support. In fact, there were financial incentives available to motivate such classifications for BOTH cases and deaths. As a direct result of this corruption, the public had no way of determining how “serious” the situation was, or how “rational” or “justified” the government’s restrictive measures were.
The death records kept by medical authorities, based upon clinical observation, conflicted at an almost 2-to-1 ratio with records kept by population authorities thus creating doubts about the integrity and value of any of the mortality data. How could anyone, citizen or authority, be able to accurately evaluate the situation and make policies that affected everyone with such unreliable data?
The WHO took advantage and dictated their plan and governments trusted and accepted it without question or reservation.
Autopsies, which would have greatly aided in our understanding how the virus operated, and most especially in confirming whether the virus killed the individual, were (conveniently? or intentionally?) prohibited and the dead were (quickly) cremated. The justification was based upon a false assumption regarding possible transmissibility and lethality, which eliminated our ability to establish any true extent that COVID19 (or vaccines) played. This is perhaps the greatest tragedy of the pandemic. It is definitely the greatest irony because those who died, and could have contributed so much toward the survival of the living, were denied that opportunity. What a disgrace.
“Vaccines” were rolled out without previously-mandated assessment procedures that were developed and validated over decades to ensure immunity and safety in vaccine recipients. Because this process was rushed, safety issues (which we now know were hidden by the manufacturers from their own initial test data) quickly appeared and have accumulated at a pace never before seen in medical history. These new mRNA technology “vaccines” resulted in unforeseen and unpredictable results, which:
Did not produce the traditional vaccine “immunity” we expected, based upon our experience with previous vaccines. Protection from infection was promised at the start and the data the manufacturers and authorities produced indicated protection values of 95%-97%, causing everyone to be filled with eager anticipation. However, as millions of doses were administered, and variants emerged, it soon became clear that protection from infection and from transmission was not being achieved. To compensate (and justify), the authorities lowered standards that had been in place for decades, allowing below-minimum (WHO) levels of safety and efficacy to be accepted. They pushed their “vaccines” as “the only hope” for ending the COVID19 pandemic. They erroneously pushed them as “vaccines” and “treatments,” but they were in fact neither!
Created a situation wherein, because of weak protection benefits, recipients would be in need of boosters at a much higher rate than any previous vaccine in history. The authorities (WHO) maintain this to be of no consequence to the immune system. They continue even now to advocate that people, even young children, take a 3rd or 4 th booster. Meanwhile, virologists and immunologists all across the globe are sounding the alarm that receiving multiple shots of these medications over a very short time will not produce the correct antibody protection and any level of protection achieved will be very short-lived, thus requiring more boosters, which they all agree is very bad for our immune systems. Do these people (WHO) really know what they’re doing?
Caused a degree of vaccine harm never before seen in medical history. The WHO pharmacovigilance data (VigiBase) alone shows that the COVID19 “vaccines” have accumulated, in only 26 months of use, over 5 times the combined adverse events and associated deaths from all previous vaccines in history. How could the WHO see their own data and NOT be concerned? How could national health authorities see the WHO data and NOT be concerned enough to raise questions?
Because the WHO and national health authorities were so committed to these “vaccines” as “the remedy” for the pandemic, they ignored and explained away any and all concerns. Meanwhile, the shots have continued to add to the already unprecedented rates of harm and associated deaths compared to all previous vaccines. It is unbelievable.
Health authorities, under the leadership of the WHO, likewise ignored calls from experienced clinical physicians around the world for the use of repurposed drugs as treatments for COVID19. Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine were especially targeted, even though many doctors and clinical studies were bringing them well-organized data. Many studies were undertaken by doctors and scientists commonly tasked by these same authorities (WHO) to conduct such studies to assist them in their policy-making, but whose works were dismissed and criticized when their data did not agree or advance the proper (WHO) narrative. As a result, many people died who could have been saved!
The WHO simply had too much influence over the global health and political situation. It set COVID19 policies based solely upon a pre-defined narrative. They highlighted data supplied by the manufacturers and only considered studies that had outcomes supportive of their policies.
There were studies and experts who could have presented and substantiated opposing views, resulting in constructive scientific investigation and debate that could have easily changed the course of action taken in a positive way, could have shortened the suffering and prevented the strict restrictions, and possibly saved millions of lives. Instead, they rallied around their narrative, squelched all scientific debate and investigation that could have found real solutions to this never-before-seen virus, and made billions of dollars while millions of people were harmed by the virus and by their “vaccines” that weren’t really vaccines at all.
Throughout the entire pandemic, the media never questioned the narrative or the measures of health authorities in order to ensure fair discussion and debate.
Not only did they refuse to acknowledge and investigate the concerns raised by experts on the other side, but they gave in to pressure from authorities (WHO) to ignore those concerns and accept whatever the authorities (WHO) said.
They cooperated and colluded with health authorities to sanction and cancel anyone who questioned the official narrative even when the evidence against such became undeniable. It was as if they were on the scene of a violent riot yet insisting, “It was mostly peaceful.” How can we trust them going forward? Now we are seeing efforts by these same authorities (WHO) to lure (pressure) countries into enacting new laws giving them even more control and the media is generally refusing to challenge them. It is as if the authorities sat like coaches after a loss asking “What did we do wrong?”, then drafted a revised gameplan listing changes that would have allowed them to win the game. Then they packaged those changes into a carefully worded text that on the surface seems innocent enough, but underneath contains “what if” scenarios that allow them to step in, set aside constitutional processes, and overpower personal freedoms, all “for the good of mankind.” Next time, all dissent will be immediately crushed.
Here is the problem… Seeing how grossly they (WHO) failed us the first time, and how much freedom we almost lost, had it not been for the small but determined groups of concerned scientists, doctors, politicians, parents, and citizens who fought for democracy and true science, how can lawmakers cede sovereignty to unelected officials who’ve showed themselves time and again to be more interested in pursuing power and money over the safety and wellbeing of the people of the world?
We only need look at the ongoing insistence of these authorities (WHO) to push for the injection of our precious children with their experimental “vaccine,” which was never proven to be safe by traditionally accepted processes, and which has harmed and killed 5 times more people than all previous vaccines in history combined.
There is nothing in all that has happened that suggests this course of action is “the way” forward.
