How Changing the Definition of Pandemic Altered Our World

How Changing the Definition of Pandemic Altered Our World

Mid-March 2020 predictions mentioned COVID-19 would kill 2.2 million Americans if allowed to run its course.1 By the tip of March, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, downgraded the projected loss of life toll, saying we had been in all probability taking a look at 100,000 to 240,000 Americans dying.2

April 8, 2020, a brand new mannequin known as the Murray Model3 downgraded the risk additional, predicting COVID-19 will kill 60,000 within the U.S. by August 20204 — a quantity that’s nonetheless 20,000 decrease than the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s loss of life toll numbers attributed to the seasonal flu the winter of 2017/2018.5

Now, 9 months into the pandemic, mortality statistics clearly present the reality: The COVID-19 pandemic is a pandemic in identify solely. In actuality, there isn’t any extra mortality,6,7,8 and had it not been for the World Health Organization altering the definition of “pandemic,” COVID-19 would not be a problem.

I do know some will balk on the idea of no extra mortality however the reality is the reality, and while you study the present numbers, that’s what you discover. If you combine the U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention’s feedback that 94% of those that died had comorbidities, which may simply be the true reason behind the reported “COVID-19 deaths,” it then turns into apparent that the numbers had been extremely inflated.

Definition of Pandemic Substantially Altered

The WHO’s authentic definition of a pandemic was:9,10

“… when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity, resulting in several, simultaneous epidemics worldwide with enormous numbers of deaths and illness.”

The key portion of that definition is “enormous numbers of deaths and illness.” This definition was modified within the month main as much as the 2009 swine flu pandemic. The change was a easy however substantial one: They merely eliminated the severity and excessive mortality standards, leaving the definition of a pandemic as “a worldwide epidemic of a disease.”11

This change in definition allowed the WHO to declare swine flu a pandemic after a mere 144 folks had died from the an infection, worldwide, and it is why COVID-19 is nonetheless promoted as a pandemic despite the fact that it has precipitated no extra mortality in 9 months.12,13,14

We now have loads of knowledge displaying the lethality of COVID-19 is on par with the seasonal flu.15,16,17,18,19 It could also be totally different in phrases of signs and issues, however the precise lethality is in regards to the identical. The absolute danger of loss of life is equal to the danger of dying in a automobile accident.20,21

By eradicating the standards of extreme sickness inflicting excessive morbidity, leaving geographically widespread an infection as the one standards for a pandemic, the WHO and technocratic leaders of the world had been in a position to bamboozle the worldwide inhabitants into giving up our lives and livelihoods.

As famous by Reiner Fuellmich, an lawyer and founding member of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee, the COVID-19 pandemic is “probably the greatest crime against humanity ever committed.”22,23,24,25

This definitely is not the primary time doom and gloom predictions of mass casualties have utterly collapsed. It’s additionally not the primary time that fast-tracked pandemic vaccines have been issued, with devastating impact.

In that regard, we are able to study rather a lot from the 1976 swine flu pandemic, detailed within the 1979 “60 Minutes” episode featured above. This was additionally the primary time drug corporations had been indemnified towards legal responsibility for any hurt that may end result from a fast-tracked vaccine. 

The Swine Flu Fraud of 1976

In February 1976, secretary of well being F. David Matthews warned the American folks there have been indications that the virus liable for the lethal 1918 flu pandemic had returned. In January that yr, a 19-year-old Army personal had died from flu-related pneumonia, regardless of being in good well being, and by the tip of the month, 155 troopers at Fort Dix examined optimistic for swine flu antibodies.

Projections prompt the dreaded virus would kill 1 million Americans earlier than the tip of 1976.26 “The government propaganda machine cranked into action,” “60 Minutes” says, urging all Americans to get vaccinated towards the swine flu.

According to “60 Minutes,” 46 million Americans bought the vaccine, and over the subsequent few years, 1000’s of Americans filed vaccine injury claims with the federal authorities.27

This was nicely earlier than the 1986 Vaccine Compensation Act, so vaccines had been nonetheless accountable for damages at the moment. Congress did grant the swine flu vaccine particular immunity, although, and wound up paying (truly U.S. taxpayers did) for the $3.5 billion in damages the vaccine precipitated. A 1981 report by the U.S. General Accounting Office to Sen. John Durkin reads, partly:28

“Before the swine flu program there have been comparatively few vaccine-related claims made towards the Government. Since 1963, Public Health Service data confirmed that solely 27 non-swine flu claims had been filed.

However, as of December 31, 1979, we discovered that 3,839 claims and 988 lawsuits had been filed towards the Government alleging harm, loss of life, or different injury ensuing from the 45 million swine flu immunizations given below this system.

A Justice official informed us that as of October 2, 1980, 3,965 claims and 1,384 lawsuits had been filed. Of the three,965 claims filed, the Justice official mentioned 316 claims had been settled for about $12.3 million …”

$3.5 Billion Dollars in Damages Paid for Vaccine Injuries

According to “60 Minutes,” the ultimate claims quantity for the practically 4,000 claimants ended up totaling $3.5 billion. Two-thirds of the claimants suffered neurological injury and at the least 300 of them died from vaccine unintended effects. In the tip, the pandemic itself by no means materialized.29 An article by Real Clear Politics described the timeline of the pandemic that wasn’t, and the circumstances that led to the indemnification of vaccine makers:30

“All of the reported swine flu instances had been restricted to the troopers in Private Lewis’ camp. The virus wasn’t spreading. For some purpose this info didn’t mollify the docs, and on Feb. 14, 1976, the CDC issued a discover to all U.S. hospitals to be looking out for any instances of swine flu.

By March … not one case of swine flu had been reported outdoors of Fort Dix. For some purpose this information didn’t placate the docs both, and on March 13, 1976, the director of the CDC requested Congress for cash to develop and check sufficient swine flu vaccine to immunize at the least 80% of the inhabitants of the United States …

By July, [scientists] had been just about agreed {that a} flu pandemic in 1976 wouldn’t result in 1 million U.S. lifeless. The flu pressure extracted from Private Lewis, they discovered, was a lot much less virulent that the 1918 pressure …

The World Health Organization ordered hospitals to maintain a worldwide lookout for swine flu, however it didn’t request mass immunization … But the U.S. authorities was unstoppable. Congress started to strain the drug corporations to work quicker towards growth of a swine flu vaccine …

The drug corporations prompt that they might work quicker in the event that they got immunity from lawsuits within the occasion one thing went unsuitable with the vaccine. Congress refused. The challenge of authorized legal responsibility remained at an deadlock till Aug. 2, 1976.

On that day, two members of the American Legion died of an odd respiratory illness they acquired on the Legion’s conference in Philadelphia. Congress collectively freaked.

Panicky information studies out of Philadelphia hinted that the deaths had been the start of the Great Swine Flu Epidemic of 1976. On Aug. 3, Congress agreed to utterly indemnify the drug corporations towards any and all lawsuits they could incur on account of the distribution of swine flu vaccine.”

CDC Lied About Swine Flu Vaccine Safety

According to “60 Minutes,” Americans who bought the swine flu vaccine had been informed it had been correctly subject examined. What they weren’t informed was that the vaccine they acquired was not the precise vaccine that had undergone testing.

What’s extra, in accordance to Dr. Michael Hattwick, who directed the surveillance workforce for the 1976 swine flu vaccination program on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there was proof displaying influenza vaccinations may, and had, precipitated neurological issues prior to now.

He claims he warned his superiors of this chance, because it pertained to the swine flu marketing campaign. Yet the CDC denied the proof and the American public was by no means knowledgeable of this danger. “60 Minutes” additionally reveals the CDC was confirmed to have lied in its advertising and marketing supplies for the vaccine.

Judy Roberts was one of many victims of that 1976 vaccination marketing campaign. She was paralyzed by the vaccine, and suffered everlasting injury. Her husband, who additionally was vaccinated and suffered no ailing results, ends the “60 Minute” phase saying:

“I informed Judy to take the shot … I’m mad with my authorities. They knew the information however they did not launch these information, as a result of if that they had launched them, folks would not have taken it.

And they will come out tomorrow and inform me there’s going to be an epidemic, and so they can drop off like flies subsequent to me, and I cannot take one other shot that my authorities tells me to take.”

The Origin of the Anti-Vaccine Movement

The 1976 swine flu vaccine program has typically been cited because the origin of the anti-vaccine motion, and for good purpose. Thousands had been critically injured and lots of died after putting their belief in scientists and the federal government. Many of them, identical to Roberts within the “60 Minutes” phase, vowed by no means to be that naïve once more. As reported by Smithsonian Magazine in 2017:31

“In the spring of 1976, it appeared like that yr’s flu was the true factor. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t, and rushed response led to a medical debacle that hasn’t gone away.

‘Some of the American public’s hesitance to embrace vaccines — the flu vaccine specifically — will be attributed to the long-lasting results of a failed 1976 marketing campaign to mass-vaccinate the general public towards a pressure of the swine flu virus,’ writes Rebecca Kreston for Discover.

‘This government-led marketing campaign was broadly considered as a debacle and put an irreparable dent in future public well being initiative, in addition to negatively influenced the general public’s notion of each the flu and the flu shot on this nation.'”

Pandemic Threats Have Repeatedly Turned to Naught

Sadly, the embarrassment of the 1976 swine flu debacle didn’t put an finish to fake pandemics. In the final 15 years alone we have needed to defend towards wave upon wave of pandemic pandemonium, none of which turned out to be the worldwide killer that “experts” predicted.

The 2005 chicken flu outbreak, for instance, was predicted to kill wherever from 2 million to 150 million folks. In actuality, the loss of life toll topped out at simply 98 folks, globally, in 2005; 115 in 2006; and 86 in 2007.32 No one within the U.S. died from this an infection, and the sheer brazenness of this faux pandemic prompted me to put in writing my New York Times greatest vendor e-book “The Great Bird Flu Hoax.”

In 2006, 2007 and once more in 2008, hyped warnings over the chicken flu had been repeatedly uncovered as little greater than a merciless hoax, designed to instill worry and line the pocketbooks of trade and numerous vested people.

Then got here the now notorious H1N1 swine flu of 2009.33 The CDC estimates that from April 12, 2009, to April 10, 2010, there have been 60.8 million instances of H1N1 an infection, 274,000 hospitalizations and 12,469 deaths in the United States. The an infection fatality fee was a mere 0.02%. Then, as now, vaccines had been fast-tracked. Lo and behold, inside months, instances of incapacity and loss of life from the H1N1 vaccine had been reported in numerous elements of the world.

In 2010, the ASO3-adjuvanted swine flu vaccine Pandemrix (utilized in Europe however not within the U.S. throughout 2009-2010) was causally linked34 to childhood narcolepsy, which had abruptly skyrocketed in a number of nations in the course of the vaccination marketing campaign.35,36

In the aftermath, the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) raised critical questions in regards to the WHO’s dealing with of the pandemic and the position drug corporations might have performed in its drug and vaccine suggestions.

In June 2010, PACE concluded “the handling of the pandemic by the WHO, EU health agencies and national governments led to a ‘waste of large sums of public money, and unjustified scares and fears about the health risks faced by the European public.'”37

Specifically, PACE concluded there was “overwhelming evidence that the seriousness of the pandemic was vastly overrated by WHO,” and that the drug trade had influenced the group’s decision-making.38

The unhappy actuality is that the WHO is little greater than a entrance group for Big Pharma and the technocratic elite that search to “reset” the worldwide financial and social construction. It would certainly be naïve to count on this personal group to do what’s proper for public well being whereas concurrently taking course from Bill Gates (its major funder) and the drug trade.

While the 2009 swine flu pandemic was probably the most vital when it comes to the fearmongering delivered to bear, in the summertime of 2012, dire predictions of mutating chicken flu once more crammed the media, adopted by pressing requires yet one more fast-tracked vaccine.

Two years later, in 2014, the Ebola virus turned into a worldwide well being emergency after epidemics in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone had been largely ignored. Interestingly sufficient, a UN decision known as for no restrictions on worldwide journey to Ebola-stricken nations — a resolution that led to an contaminated passenger bringing the an infection to the U.S.

Another two years after that, in 2016, Zika virus hit pandemic standing,39 triggering journey alerts and restrictions out and in of affected areas. All of those pandemics defied specialists’ predictions of mass casualties. None turned into a worldwide killer, and COVID-19 isn’t any totally different.40,41,42

Why We Must End Gain-of-Function Research

Time and once more, critical security breaches have been recognized at laboratories working with probably the most deadly and harmful pathogens on this planet,43,44,45,46,47,48,49 and mounting proof suggests SARS-CoV-2 could also be a lab creation as nicely.

Scientists defend and promote gain-of-function analysis by insisting it permits us to arrange for pandemics.50 In actuality, this type of analysis doesn’t seem to have improved governments’ pandemic responses within the least. If something, it is a curious coincidence that the very viruses present process gain-of-function analysis are those inflicting pandemics.

As only one instance, an article51 by Mark Denison, editor of mBio, presents a speculation for the 1977-1978 H1N1 swine flu pandemic, also known as the Russian flu, as the primary instances had been reported in the us. According to Denison, the pandemic “was probably not a natural event, as the genetic sequence of the virus was nearly identical to the sequences of decades-old strains.”

The lab speculation has “gained popularity in discussions about the biosafety risks of gain-of-function influenza virus research, as an argument for why this research should not be performed,” he writes. Another chance being kicked round is that the an infection unfold by way of a live-vaccine trial. A 3rd possibility: a deliberate launch as a bioweapon.

As famous in a 2009 New England Journal of Medicine overview article, which offered a historic perspective on the emergence of H1N1 viruses:52

“Even although human influenza A (H1N1) virus had not circulated since 1957 and the swine influenza A (H1N1) virus that had been recognized at Fort Dix didn’t lengthen outdoors the bottom, in November 1977, the H1N1 pressure reemerged within the former Soviet Union, Hong Kong, and northeastern China.

This pressure affected primarily younger folks in a comparatively gentle presentation. Careful examine of the genetic origin of the virus confirmed that it was carefully associated to a 1950 pressure however dissimilar to influenza A (H1N1) strains from each 1947 and 1957.

This discovering prompt that the 1977 outbreak pressure had been preserved since 1950. The reemergence was in all probability an unintentional launch from a laboratory supply within the setting of waning inhabitants immunity to H1 and N1 antigens.”

Can historical past repeat itself? There are not any ensures that it could possibly’t or will not, which is why it is so essential we discover out the place SARS-CoV-2 actually got here from. As famous by the National Review,53 attending to the underside of the origin of SARS-CoV-2 is essential if we need to forestall an analogous pandemic sooner or later:

“If it originated from an individual consuming bat or pangolin at a moist market, then we have to take steps to be certain that bat and pangolin consumption and commerce stops …

Bat guano is used as fertilizer in lots of nations, and that guano will be filled with viruses … If that is the supply of the virus, we have to get folks to cease going into caves and utilizing the guano as fertilizer …

In an odd approach, the ‘lab accident’ state of affairs is among the most reassuring explanations. It signifies that if we need to guarantee we by no means expertise this once more, we merely have to get each lab on this planet engaged on contagious viruses to make sure 100% compliance with security protocols, on a regular basis.”
