On COVID-19 vaccine effects and depopulation efforts, you and I know who is responsible for leading us to either misinformation or disinformation, yet. Theories abound and conspiracy exists.
You and I are here to help stand the truth. In this new normal, speaking about truth in plain language may be lethal. You and I have to work together.
“No vaccine is 100% effective,” writes Prof. David Salisbury, a former director of immunization and associate fellow of Chatham House’s Global Health Programme.
Prof. Salibury continued explaining that to determine the percentage of the population that would be immune is a numbers game.
That is, multiplying the percentage of the vaccinated population by the percentage of how the vaccine is effective.
But isn’t that contrasting to note that while no vaccine is 100% effective, the number of population that would be immune after vaccination can only be known by doing that multiplication operation?
Uncertainty awaits 60 million Filipinos
The Philippines has a population currently estimated at over 110 million. With Php73.2 billion target fund for COVID-19 vaccine that would cover only 60 million Filipinos—nearly over 50% of the population would be vaccinated.
As to knowing the number of population that would be immune, it would also be based on the efficacy rate of the vaccine.
By noting the given facts, what will happen to more or less 60 million Filipinos in the context of limited supply?
COVID-19 vaccine lasts short
“Time will tell,” top vaccine expert Ruth Karron serving on vaccine committees for the CDC, WHO, and the FDA answers the question on how long a vaccine is effective.
Either the COVID-19 vaccine is 70% or 90% effective, experts still don’t know yet how long the vaccine could be effective. However, it was hoped that the vaccine would last at least for a year.
Then what happens to us after a year? The expert suggests that people need boosters with the possibility that people experience mild disease since the vaccine would not capable to protect 100% against it.
What about adverse effects?
“Very likely,” the top vaccine expert added.
What makes us worried too much is that when adverse effects of the COVID-19 vaccine lead to possible mass death.
Remember the Dengvaxia issue that led the Public Attorney’s Office to investigate the death of about 600 children who received the vaccine. Is there any official jailed for that yet? As of this writing, none.
Fears that COVID-19 vaccine causes infection
“Not true,” asserts Pan American Health Organization (Paho) regional advisor on new vaccines Dr. Lucia Helena de Oliviera explaining that,
Vaccines help develop immunity by imitating an infection. Once the imitation infection goes away, the body is left with a supply of memory, and this memory will be activated when the germ enters your body.
Well, the expert wants to tell us the general definition and classic vaccine mechanism of action. But does this COVID-19 vaccine’s mechanism works the same?
This leads us to why the public has increasingly become hesitant about the vaccine.
Another fear the public is getting into is that the COVID-19 vaccine as an mRNA vaccine will alter the person’s deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)—the molecule containing the genetic code of organisms.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) debunks the idea that it alters the DNA. Rather, CDC explains that the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) cannot be able to alter the person’s DNA.
Instead, CDC continues, “COVID-19 vaccines work with the body’s natural defenses to safely develop immunity to disease.”
COVID-19 vaccine effects and depopulation efforts
Bill Gates, at an official TED conference in March 2015, delivered a speech giving us a warning of a virus so infectious that could have been likened to bioterrorism. He said,
… The failure to prepare could allow the next epidemic to be dramatically more devastating… you can have a virus where people feel well enough while they’re infectious that they get on a plane or they go to a market. The source of the virus could be a natural epidemic like Ebola, or it could be bioterrorism…
After four years, Gates’ words became prophetic. The COVID-19 pandemic started with Chinese authorities’ investigation with identified human cases showing symptoms of the disease in early December 2019 in Wuhan, China.
Is it just a coincidence?
Rappler conducts fact-checking on the viral video about COVID-19 as a depopulation effort. The multimedia blog lazily cited the WHO that verifies, accordingly, COVID-19 as a naturally-occurring virus.
Remember what Gate told his audience about the virus? That the source of the virus could be a natural epidemic. That’s no need to fact-check.
The substance of the viral video is about COVID-19 as a staged effort. It means that:
- Yes, the COVID-19 is a natural-occurring virus as the proximal origin is concerned;
- Yes, the COVID-19 pandemic is true;
- Yes, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely planned, organized, and set up to bring about changes and to work out and implement plans.
Bill Gates with his Foundation has been working closely with the WHO concerning the global health policy. Either what’s happening is a conspiracy theory or not, only one thing exists—conspiracy does.
Time is ticking. Days from now we will be either excited or be feared as this “big reset” unfolds. ▲
