THE Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the UK Government’s recent joint summit in London on how to implement their 100 Days Mission plan for future pandemics (discussed here and here) cemented the global commitment to dismiss two of the most egregious interventionist sins of the Covid-19 pandemic – lockdowns and vaccine injury.
All speeches from the summit are now available to listen to here, and for the most part they are, unsurprisingly, deeply unremorseful.
Without going into too much analysis for fear of covering the same old ground, here are some of the key take-home portents from some of the last two needlessly rotten years’ doomy public health savants – some food for thought.
Despite UKHSA evidence to the contrary, Chief Scientific Adviser to Government Patrick Vallance, chair of the Pandemic Preparedness Partnership who drew up the 100 Days Mission plan, said that: ‘mRNA vaccines have shown that they can be made quickly, are very responsive to changes in a virus, and of course have a remarkable efficacy. It’s worth just remembering that with a fully-vaccinated person the protection against hospitalisation, severe disease and death is 90 per cent plus with the vaccines we have’, going on to say of what has paradoxically become known as the new era of personal responsibility that: ‘This isn’t over until everyone is safe.’
Vallance’s ongoing hysterical health and safety alarmism – let’s call it by its real name: Zero Covid by stealth – was parroted by Director General of the WHO Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who said: ‘This pandemic is not over anywhere, until it is over everywhere,’ after being introduced to the audience by Professor Chris Whitty as a ‘friend to everyone in the world’.
Looks like we’re in for a very, very long wait then.
In his own short speech, Chief Medical Officer for England Whitty slipped in a forewarning that such ruinous pandemic policies as stay-at-home orders – whether mandated or merely ‘advised’ – have not been ruled out for future use in the event that safe and effective diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines (DTVs) fail to be rolled out to scale within 100 days, saying that: ‘Any delay to getting medical counter-measures means that we have to respond with the only thing we have – social interventions – which have very major social and economic impacts.’ (Emphasis mine.)
Whitty declined to use words such as lockdown or tier-system, as did virtually everyone else, but the message remained clear enough.
On the very same topic, Whitty’s deputy (now stepped down), Professor Jonathan Van-Tam – who dramatically referred to the summit as nothing less than a ‘mission critical symposium’ – took time out of the kick-around he had arranged outside the venue to revisit his involvement since 1997 in some of the UK’s pre-Covid era pandemic strategies, which he described as often ‘pretty thin – just a few pages.’
Incredibly, he failed to mention the fairly voluminous and detailed Pandemic Preparedness Strategy of 2011 (still relevant at the time of the first UK lockdown) which advised against such things as mass-confinement of the healthy, restrictions on mass-gatherings, and the closure of schools, businesses and borders. He elected to talk only about some of the things that ‘really stood out to him’ post 2009’s H1N1/Swine flu outbreak, such as how: ‘We never needed non-pharmaceutical measures, and therefore had little experience of when and how to apply them at the scale we did in 2020.’
We never needed anything other than a keep-calm-and-carry-on approach in 2020 either, Professor, and indeed still don’t.
Davos 2017 participant, Dr Ayoade Alakija, continued the code-red ethos of the summit with: ‘We don’t know what’s coming next. Everybody’s walking around like oh wow, this is fantastic, it’s all over, Covid is over – no, it’s not! We need to remain on high, high, high alert’. Klaus Schwab himself – his WEF a founding member of CEPI – must surely have triggered her remotely to say on his behalf: ‘I think the global system needs to be reset.’
On Covid-19 vaccine-hesitancy (Lord only knows how hard it must have been for her to avoid saying ‘anti-vaxxers’) Alakija displayed a quite remarkable indifference to the millions around the world who have experienced serious vaccine injury of some kind, including death, alongside a haughty distaste for freedom of choice when it comes to one’s own body: ‘I would like to dispel the vaccine-hesitancy narrative that we seem to like in the high income countries of the world – vaccine-hesitancy is a luxury.’
That the current generation of Covid-19 gene-therapies have yet to prove themselves effective, let alone safe, however, is not something that concerns an impatient Patrick Tippoo, head of science and innovation at Cape Town-based bio-pharmaceutical company Biovac. On the WHO-supported mRNA manufacturing hub of the same location, launched July 2021, Tippoo said that: ‘Obviously mRNA is the flavour of the month, but we need to think beyond mRNA when thinking about building capacity for future pandemics.’
Slow down Tippoo, the world is still struggling to digest Big Pharma’s newest and most toxic-ever biological boerewors. The last thing we need is you cobbling together an equally experimental trifle for dessert.
Oxford-AstraZeneca heroine Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert delivered a few choice words of her own.
It being International Women’s Day at the time, Professor Gilbert grasped the opportunity to let the world know which cohort will perhaps be among the very first in line to receive a shot of the next pandemic’s hazardous intramuscular cure-all: ‘We now know that vaccine developers were too cautious in enrolling pregnant women into trials. For next time, we should make sure that we are ready to prioritise protection for this group, and ensure that public health messaging is appropriate.’
Pfizer’s Comirnaty and Moderna’s suitably-aggressively named Spikevax are the recommended concoctions for pregnant women, even though recently updated national protocols for both state that ‘clinical trials on the use of Covid-19 vaccines during pregnancy are not advanced’.
On the subject of appropriate public health messaging, make what you will of consultant obstetrician Lucy Chappell’s claim of January 27, made on the DHSC’s YouTube channel (and as it related to a discussion on Covid-19 vaccination in pregnancy) that: ‘96 per cent of the women we see who are hospitalised with Covid are not vaccinated’.
This came only two weeks after Ofcom had merely slapped the wrist of ITV’s Lorraine show for guest Dr Hilary Jones’s inaccurate statement that 90 per cent of Covid-19 patients in hospital were unvaccinated, and should therefore be taken with a lorry-load of salt (two months now having passed notwithstanding).
But it is on the issue of clinical trials that Professor Gilbert delivered perhaps the most foreboding of all the ‘mission critical’ symposium’s warnings to the public: ‘The goal of having vaccines ready for use within 100 days in future does not allow for vaccines to be tested for safety and efficacy in Phase Three trials as they were in 2020, but will require a different approach to approvals for emergency use which is yet to be established.’
Phase One of the new normal: COMPLETE.
