It’s sometimes like pulling teeth, but the nation is making fitful progress toward COVID sanity.

Here in New York, Gov. Hochul and (especially) Mayor Adams are refusing to panic amid the Omicron wave, as their teams offer ever more good sense and better information. Glimmers of sanity are even showing in President Biden’s orbit.

Plenty of idiocy remains, even on the Supreme Court, where Friday’s hearing on Biden’s vaccine mandate for most US businesses brought some huge whoppers from the liberal wing.

Justice Steven Breyer, for one, pointed to “750 million new COVID cases yesterday” — when the entire US population is only half that figure. He also said, “Hospitals are full almost to the point of the maximum,” another wild error: The overall inpatient population isn’t growing.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor, meanwhile, claimed vaccination prevents transmission of the virus — contradicting no less than Biden CDC chief Rochelle Walensky, who noted this summer that Delta rendered that untrue.

And it’s even worse with Omicron, though that variant has proved far milder. Not that Sotomayor has noticed: She said Friday that it’s as deadly, another huge error. That rivals her wild claim that “we have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators.”

Huh? Fewer than 4,000 US kids have COVID at all, per the federal Health and Human Services count.

Not that any of those “facts” have a thing to do with whether Biden’s mandate is constitutional: It’s not, and (thankfully) other justices showed far more sense.

Meanwhile, a pack of former Biden advisers on COVID are facing the fact that the coronavirus will be with us forever, albeit while posing a far less deadly threat, releasing a package of recommendations in the Journal of the American Medical Association under the headline, “A National Strategy for the ‘New Normal’ of Life With COVID.”

The specific ideas from Ezekial “Dr. Death” Emanuel and his colleagues range from the sound (allowing far more telemedicine and medical practice across state lines) to the absurd (permanent “vaccine passports” for all Americans), but at least they’re clear that “Zero Covid” is a foolish and unattainable goal.

The prez himself now admits, “Having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” which follows his belated recognition that “there is no federal solution” to the virus. (But leopards don’t change their spots: He still wants his vax mandate to go through, and the White House is reportedly looking at asking for more “COVID relief” funds.)

Even the CDC has been showing some reason, reducing its recommendations for quarantine down to five days, “even” for kids.

And the Food and Drug Administration is (reluctantly) OK’ing some of the new treatments. But both agencies remain largely stuck in their old afraid-to-approve-anything-new ways, delaying approval of anti-COVID innovations already in wide use around the world. And the White House (unlike Team Trump) is letting them get away with it.

But New York’s own change of leadership is proving a huge plus. Former Mayor Bill de Blasio was actually pretty good on the need to keep schools open, but Adams is being a true stalwart despite the Omicron panic among many teachers.

And Adams’ new schools chancellor, David Banks, is fantastic, telling The Post: “A lot of time people talk about remote learning, but they talk about that from an adult perspective,” when, “if you listen to this from a student perspective, the kids want to be in school.”

Hochul, meanwhile, has already delivered on her vow to get more detailed info from hospitals — and to share it. On Friday, she revealed that half of city hospitalizations “with” COVID “involved patients who tested positive after being admitted for ‘non-COVID reasons’ ”; the statewide figure is about 40%.

That means the rise in hospitalization is less cause for worry, since it’s a weak signal of greater actual danger. Plus, as Hochul has also noted, the soaring numbers of people testing positive in this Omicron wave have led to far fewer hospitalizations and death.

Because Omicron is much milder, the gov even urged people to not use the ER to get tested unless your symptoms are serious. That makes complete sense: You don’t worry about just what flu or cold virus has hit you; if you’re not really sick, you shouldn’t have any great fear over Omicron; just treat the symptoms.

And, as new state Health Commissioner Mary Bassett explained Friday, cases seem to be leveling off as rapidly as they did in South Africa’s Omicron wave.

“I think we can expect a difficult January, but things should be much better by February,” she said.

She also offered comfort on children, noting that state still has just 211 kids hospitalized with COVID — up from 14 on Dec. 1, but still a tiny total in a state with 3 million under-18s. And none are in the ICU.

Plenty of folks are still clinging COVID hysteria, especially among America’s sheltered elites. But after nearly two years, sound sense is finally winning out

Imagine that!!!!!!!!! 

It only took 2 years to teach the Liberals common sense and logic. 

What group of people has ruined this country with it's lack of intelligence and it's supreme arrogance that does not allow them to listen to and learn the truth?

Pfizer CEO: Our Vaccines Offer ‘Limited, If Any Protection’

Pfizer CEO: Our Vaccines Offer ‘Limited, If Any Protection’

Speaking during remarks to a J.P. Morgan healthcare conference this week, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla openly stated current vaccines the company developed for Wuhan coronavirus offer "limited, if any" protection against contracting current variants of the disease. He then encouraged booster shots. 

 

The statement from Bourla comes as the Biden administration continues to justify vaccine mandates for federal workers, contractors and private businesses. The Supreme Court heard arguments about President Biden's mandates for private companies and medical workers last week. A ruling is expected soon on the constitutionality of the mandates. 

A number of people who have pointed out the waning efficacy of Pfizer's vaccines, which Bourla touted last year as being "100 percent" effective against contracting or transmitting the virus, have been banned by social media companies. 

Meanwhile, Bourla also announced this week the company is developing a vaccine specific to Omicron. It is expected to be ready in March when health officials predict the latest wave of the mild variant will already be over.

Doomed To Fail" - Top Immunologist Blasts Global COVID Response Driven By "False Propaganda"

 

 

Professor Ehud Qimron, head of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Tel Aviv University and one of the leading Israeli immunologists, has written an open letter sharply criticizing the Israeli – and indeed global – management of the coronavirus pandemic.

Professor Ehud Qimron (center) at Tel Aviv University (Haaretz)

Original letter in HebrewN12 News (January 6, 2022); translated by Google/SPR. See also: Professor Qimron’s prediction from August 2020: “History will judge the hysteria” (INN).

∗ ∗ ∗

Ministry of Health, it’s time to admit failure

In the end, the truth will always be revealed, and the truth about the coronavirus policy is beginning to be revealed. When the destructive concepts collapse one by one, there is nothing left but to tell the experts who led the management of the pandemic – we told you so.

Two years late, you finally realize that a respiratory virus cannot be defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. You do not admit it, because you have admitted almost no mistake in the last two years, but in retrospect it is clear that you have failed miserably in almost all of your actions, and even the media is already having a hard time covering your shame.

You refused to admit that the infection comes in waves that fade by themselves, despite years of observations and scientific knowledge. You insisted on attributing every decline of a wave solely to your actions, and so through false propaganda “you overcame the plague.” And again you defeated it, and again and again and again.

You refused to admit that mass testing is ineffective, despite your own contingency plans explicitly stating so (“Pandemic Influenza Health System Preparedness Plan, 2007”, p. 26).

You refused to admit that recovery is more protective than a vaccine, despite previous knowledge and observations showing that non-recovered vaccinated people are more likely to be infected than recovered people. You refused to admit that the vaccinated are contagious despite the observations. Based on this, you hoped to achieve herd immunity by vaccination — and you failed in that as well.

You insisted on ignoring the fact that the disease is dozens of times more dangerous for risk groups and older adults, than for young people who are not in risk groups, despite the knowledge that came from China as early as 2020.

You refused to adopt the “Barrington Declaration”, signed by more than 60,000 scientists and medical professionals, or other common sense programs. You chose to ridicule, slander, distort and discredit them. Instead of the right programs and people, you have chosen professionals who lack relevant training for pandemic management (physicists as chief government advisers, veterinarians, security officers, media personnel, and so on).

You have not set up an effective system for reporting side effects from the vaccines and reports on side effects have even been deleted from your Facebook page. Doctors avoid linking side effects to the vaccine, lest you persecute them as you did to some of their colleagues. You have ignored many reports of changes in menstrual intensity and menstrual cycle times. You hid data that allows for objective and proper research (for example, you removed the data on passengers at Ben Gurion Airport). Instead, you chose to publish non-objective articles together with senior Pfizer executives on the effectiveness and safety of vaccines.

Irreversible damage to trust

However, from the heights of your hubris, you have also ignored the fact that in the end the truth will be revealed. And it begins to be revealed. The truth is that you have brought the public’s trust in you to an unprecedented low, and you have eroded your status as a source of authority. The truth is that you have burned hundreds of billions of shekels to no avail – for publishing intimidation, for ineffective tests, for destructive lockdowns and for disrupting the routine of life in the last two years.

You have destroyed the education of our children and their future. You made children feel guilty, scared, smoke, drink, get addicted, drop out, and quarrel, as school principals around the country attest. You have harmed livelihoods, the economy, human rights, mental health and physical health.

You slandered colleagues who did not surrender to you, you turned the people against each other, divided society and polarized the discourse. You branded, without any scientific basis, people who chose not to get vaccinated as enemies of the public and as spreaders of disease. You promote, in an unprecedented way, a draconian policy of discrimination, denial of rights and selection of people, including children, for their medical choice. A selection that lacks any epidemiological justification.

When you compare the destructive policies you are pursuing with the sane policies of some other countries — you can clearly see that the destruction you have caused has only added victims beyond the vulnerable to the virus. The economy you ruined, the unemployed you caused, and the children whose education you destroyed — they are the surplus victims as a result of your own actions only.

There is currently no medical emergency, but you have been cultivating such a condition for two years now because of lust for power, budgets and control. The only emergency now is that you still set policies and hold huge budgets for propaganda and psychological engineering instead of directing them to strengthen the health care system.

This emergency must stop!

Professor Udi Qimron, Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University

Czech Republic Abolishes Plan To Mandate COVID-19 Vaccines

 
FRIDAY, JAN 21, 2022 - 05:00 AM

Authored by Isabel van Brugen via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

The new Czech government on Wednesday threw out the previous administration’s plan to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for over-60s and people in key professions.

Czech_Republic_Election-700x420.jpg?itok

Under the former government, older adults, health care workers, firefighters, police officers and medical students would have been required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, effective March.

But Prime Minister Petr Fiala scrapped his predecessor Andrej Babis’s decree, which was issued in early December. He told reporters Wednesday that his new center-right government did not see the need for mandatory vaccination.

We’ve agreed that vaccination against COVID-19 won’t be mandatory,” Fiala said. ”This does not change our stance on vaccination. It is still undoubtedly the best way to fight COVID-19 … however, we do not want to deepen fissures in society.”

Opponents of a vaccine mandate had staged several protests in Prague and elsewhere in the country.

So far, 62.9 percent of Czechs are considered fully vaccinated, below the European Union average, according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control. Almost 3.4 million people in the nation of 10.5 million also have received a booster shot.

Fiala said about 90 percent of people who would have been covered by the mandate have already received vaccines.

The new government’s decision came as the Czech Republic is facing a surge in COVID-19 infections largely fueled by the highly contagious Omicron variant of the novel coronavirus.

The seven-day infection rate was 950 new cases per 100,000 residents on Tuesday compared to 799 a day earlier.

Despite the record numbers, the number of COVID-19 patients in hospitals dropped to 1,635 on Tuesday with 252 needing intensive care.

Researchers and health experts are hopeful that the Omicron variant, while highly transmissible, is less severe, and poses milder symptoms in infected people, compared with other strains such as the Delta variant.

Elsewhere, in Austria residents are set to be fined if they flout a COVID-19 vaccine mandate the country is aiming to introduce in February for all residents aged 14 and over.

Last month, Austria’s health minister announced that those who flout the vaccine mandate will face fines of up to 3,600 euros (around $4,000).

And in Greece, a vaccination mandate has been imposed on all over-60s. Those who refuse to be vaccinated will be fined by the government, health minister Thanos Plevris said. Fines start this month at 50 euros ($57), followed by a monthly fine of 100 euros ($114).

Plevris said the penalties would be collected through the tax office and used to fund state hospitals
