SIR Ashley Bloomfield was New Zealand’s Director General of Health and the public face of the government’s Covid policy until he retired last year. He is now establishing a Public Policy Impact Institute (PPII) at Auckland University. PPII aims to shape the government’s future public health policy.
In an article last week on the Radio New Zealand (RNZ) website, Bloomfield claimed we are out the other side of the pandemic saying: ‘Everyone’s sort of life’s getting almost back to completely normal’.He said he was ‘greatly satisfied that three years on from the first lockdown, Aotearoa still had negative excess mortality’. He reported that the World Health Organisation acknowledges NZ’s pandemic response was ‘one of the best in the world’ and added that ‘lockdowns may have a place’ in NZ’s future.
Bloomfield’s statement was carefully worded to hide the misrepresentation in his assessment of pandemic policy. In 2020 there was a large reduction in excess mortality due to the lockdowns, border closures and the consequent absence of both Covid and seasonal flu. We now know these lockdowns came at a great social and economic cost.
In 2021, while lockdowns, border closures and the absence of Covid and flu continued, deaths rose in synchrony with the vaccine rollout. More alarmingly, in 2021 hospital admissions for a range of conditions known to be adverse effects of Covid vaccination doubled (see here). This set the stage for future rises in excess deaths. In 2022 the rate of excess deaths rose to record levels (see here). In 2023 this trend has accelerated further (see here).
Sir Ashley Bloomfield is not just reassuring us that he did a good job but claiming to be among the best in the world. NZ has just finished a year with the highest excess mortality on record. It doesn’t add up, does it? My question is this: Why did Bloomfield fail to acknowledge the human cost and how is he getting away with it?
It helps to have the media staunchly on your side and failing to ask critical questions, but that only leads to another question: Why are they behaving in this way? Certainly the media are being paid to promote the vaccine, but surely they wouldn’t continue to print obvious lies if newly published research pointed squarely to errors?
The miscalculations of the age of technology
In the early 1980s I bought a hand-held programmable calculator, marvelled at its ability, wrote a BASIC routine to test multiplication tables, and began to use it as a classroom aid. Little did I realise at the time that within the space of a few years mathematical literacy would plummet. Students were being taught a push-button notion of maths that crippled their capacity to evaluate figures in their heads. This is Ashley Bloomfield’s ‘get out of jail free’ card.
The limited pandemic figures that have been released in NZ and around the world are unequivocal – mRNA vaccines are deadly, but mathematical assessment is not a strong suit of the general public. As long as the media keep printing stories about our pandemic success, no one is any the wiser.
People are falling ill and dying in record numbers, but the government, Health New Zealand, the media and Sir Ashley Bloomfield are reassuring everybody it would have been a lot worse if they hadn’t taken the vaccine. In fact the reverse is true and is even being admitted by respected science journals such as the Lancet. The unvaccinated have higher natural immunity. In fact this has been known to science for nine months (see here).
Just stop for a moment and think: if Sir Ashley Bloomfield and others involved in the formation and promotion of Covid policy were to admit this, they would face public censure and possibly even criminal charges. Apparently the culprits are determined that is not going to happen.
I am not impugning the initial motivations or intentions in NZ. Yet everyone fell for a lie (read this comprehensive assessment by Ramesh Thakur, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations). Covid vaccination was touted as an obvious social good.
No one on the receiving end realised that biotech medicine was known to be risky and inherently mutagenic, but the vast corporate world of Big Pharma knew. For years they have been honing their public relations skills to promote big lies and profit. They knew that Covid vaccines were neither safe nor effective, but they hid and camouflaged the data (see here and here). By failing to speak up and sound the alarm as more data came to light, Sir Ashley Bloomfield ended up joining their ranks. He shouldn’t have, because as a doctor he would have known just how deadly the known adverse effects of Covid vaccination were.
Last week I published an article ‘The Gene Illusion That is Killing Us’ [a shortened version was published in TCW] in which I reported an OIA [Freedom of Information request] detailing a list of 12 illness categories whose collective incidence doubled in NZ in 2021, post vaccination. What I didn’t explain in that article are the known short- and long-term mortality rates associated with these conditions.
There were 31,335 extra hospitalisations in NZ for acute kidney injury in 2021 compared with 2019. A 2019 study found ‘recent data suggest that the risk of mortality and renal dysfunction extends far beyond hospital discharge’.
There were 438 extra hospitalisations for acute liver injury. A 2019 study found that the risk of death following medication-induced liver injury is 10 per cent.
There were 2,093 extra hospitalisations for venous thromboembolism (VTE). A 2014 study found that the risk of death within one year was 31 per cent and continued to be elevated after that.
I don’t need to go through all the 12 categories of illness, or the 25 other categories that the Ministry of Health have not yet released including cancer. Suffice to say these are conditions with serious short- and long-term implications for health and mortality. Clearly Covid vaccination is depressing immune function, leading to an across-the-board susceptibility to a huge range of illnesses. Members of the public are meekly receiving diagnoses for potentially fatal conditions, but the medical profession are mute on the possible causal involvement of Covid vaccination in many of the cases.
Any doctor should have been concerned about the doubling of hospital admissions in 2021, let alone the Director General of Health who had ultimate responsibility for public health and wellbeing. He should have paused the Covid vaccine programme.
I find all the public posturing about vaccine safety incomprehensible and increasingly concerning: I’m sure you do too. The government are ramping up their promotion of the bivalent vaccine, while a growing number of scientists around the world are sounding the alarm. They are publishing articles in journals pointing out the errors in Covid policy decisions (for example see here) that are costing lives, but the government, its advisers, the media and the medical profession are unrepentant.
As Sir Ashley Bloomfield dreams of future pandemics and lockdowns from his comfortable new roost in academia, it is hard to escape the notion that human life has become very cheap or even irrelevant in the pursuit of policy, prestige, power, and profit.
