Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold.

The scientific community speaks out against the health policy of the authorities: the declaration of Great Barrington (USA) against massive injections of mRNA has collected 870.000 signatures.

Repost:

While the President of the French Republic meets this Monday, December 6, a new Council of Defense to fight against the spread of the epidemic of Covid-19, more and more voices are raised against the health policy completely crazy of the authorities which aims to vaccinate more and more the population. After the third dose of vaccine imposed, under penalty of deactivation of the health pass! There is now the question of vaccinating children from 5 to 11 years old. A decision that would be very serious according to many doctors and researchers that we have reported here.

Serious side effects

Mass vaccination with a still experimental messenger RNA vaccine has long worried the scientific community. As of October 4, 2020, three high-level scientists, Prof. Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard University, biostatistician, and epidemiologist, specializing in the detection and monitoring of infectious disease outbreaks and in the evaluation of vaccine safety. Dr. Sunetra Gupta, professor at Oxford University, an epidemiologist specializing in immunology, vaccine development, and mathematical modeling of infectious diseases. And Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, a physician, epidemiologist, health economist, and public health policy expert specializing in infectious diseases and vulnerable populations, recommended an alternative approach to Covid-19 in what was called the Great Barrington Declaration. Because they are very concerned about the side effects of mass vaccination on populations.


What do they advocate? “focused” protection. That is to say, to protect as much as possible the elderly, the infirm, the frail and to leave the others to live normally until the society reaches the collective immunity. However, mass vaccination by mRNA makes this collective immunity impossible.
One of the original co-signatories was Dr. Simon Thornley, an epidemiologist and biostatistician at the University of Auckland. The Great Barrington Declaration has since been signed by 60,000 physicians and scientists and is becoming increasingly well known around the world. A petition has so far gathered 870,000 signatures of support.

The Great Barrington Declaration

The Great Barrington Declaration – As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.

Coming from both the left and right and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings, and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice.

Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.

Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza.

As immunity builds in the population, the risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e. the point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd immunity.

The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at the highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.

Adopting measures to protect the vulnerable should be the central aim of public health responses to COVID-19. By way of example, nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent testing of other staff and all visitors. Staff rotation should be minimized. Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials delivered to their homes. When possible, they should meet family members outside rather than inside. A comprehensive and detailed list of measures, including approaches to multi-generational households, can be implemented and is well within the scope and capability of public health professionals.

Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport, and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.”
