Jon Rappoport on Bologna Italy and Coronavirus
LA Times Goads Citizens During COVID-19

Whatever happened to Paul Offit’s 10,000 vaccines?

image from www.rescuepost.comThese are Paul Offit’s comments posted on his Facebook page earlier this week: an acknowledgment that vaccines are dangerous. Whatever happened to ten thousand vaccines are safe for an infant?

Which will do more harm, the virus or the fear of the virus?

Why are we so scared of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19? People are usually scared of viruses for three reasons:
One: the virus causes gruesome, disfiguring, permanent symptoms. Smallpox, for example, not only caused life-long facial scarring, it also was a frequent cause of blindness in those who survived.
Two: the virus has a predilection for children. Polio paralyzed tens of thousands of young children every year until a vaccine finally eliminated the disease from the United States.
Three: the virus is likely to kill you. Rabies kills virtually 100 percent of people who develop symptoms after a bite from a rabid animal.
The novel coronavirus currently circulating in the United States—the one that has caused us to shut down schools, restaurants, sporting events, and virtually every aspect of our culture—falls into none of these categories. Nonetheless, people are scared. Really scared. The reason is they think that if they catch COVID-19, they have a high likelihood of dying from the disease. Most public health officials have done little to lessen this fear, arguing that people are ten times more likely to die from this novel coronavirus than from influenza. Unfortunately, these officials haven’t made clear the difference between relative risk and absolute risk. Although people are more likely to die from COVID-19 than from influenza, they are far more likely to catch influenza. Therefore, they are far more likely to die from influenza.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of March 7, 2020, 36 million to 51 million people have suffered from influenza, 370,000 to 670,000 have been hospitalized, and 22,000 to 55,000 have died from the disease. To put these numbers in perspective, let’s look at countries that have dealt with COVID-19.

China, where COVID-19 originated, has reported roughly 3,000 deaths. The population of China is about 1.4 billion, three times greater than ours. If we suffer an equivalent proportion of deaths, then 1,000 Americans will die from COVID-19, one-twentieth to one-fiftieth of the number who have died from influenza.
Italy has reported roughly 2,000 deaths from COVID-19 and, as a result, has shut down the country; only grocery stores and pharmacies remain open. Italy has a population of 60 million, about one-fifth of the U.S. population. If we suffer an equivalent proportion of deaths, then 10,000 Americans will die of COVID-19, about one-half to one-fifth of the number of deaths from influenza.
Not everyone, however, is at equal risk of dying. The virus primarily kills the elderly and those suffering from chronic diseases, which explains the situation in Italy, where 25 percent of its population is more than 65 years of age; in the U.S. it’s 16 percent. Wouldn’t it make more sense, then, to ask people who are elderly and infirm to stay away from crowds, thus lessening their chances of contracting the disease. Also, to ask people who are sick with respiratory symptoms to stay home. Focus on common sense things like washing hands several times a day and standing clear of people who are coughing or sneezing. The federal government can also help by making it easier for businesses to allow people who are ill to stay home.
In 2009-2010, the world suffered an influenza pandemic caused by swine flu; about 203,000 people were killed by the virus; 12,000 in the United States. The novel coronavirus has killed about 6,000 people to date; 62 in the United States. It doesn’t make sense to shut down our entire way of life to try and stop a virus that is unlikely to harm healthy people and will be far less devastating than the influenza epidemics that we experience every winter and the influenza pandemic we experienced ten years ago. Let’s take common sense measures to stop the spread. The precautionary principle dictates caution to prevent harm. But the precautionary principle also dictates that you don’t cause harm in the name of preventing harm. It will take years to recover from the draconian measures that we are currently instituting.

Where did Offit says vaccines were dangerous?

@ goldenchamaleon, all:

Using the data actually supplied by CDC websites, it comes to 1.4 influenza-associated deaths per 36,000 Americans having an actual flu infection.

The math is simple and direct; whereas the CDC propagandists spout horrendous exaggerations to scare everybody to get toxic flu shots; at this date, data from all the U.S. flu vaccine makers reveals the vast majority of flu shots into babies, children every year, and seniors every year contain 25 micrograms of neurotoxic ethylmercury per .50 ml dose.

goldenchameleon

@david m burd so the true death rate is .00003889?!

You should write a book.

David m burd

All, there is a gigantic terribly wrong "fact" that keeps being cited by countless newscasters, various scientists, etc. This "fact" is that yearly influence cases experience .1 percent (one in a thousand) mortality. This is incredibly WRONG.

Let me explain: One honest estimate by the CDC is that about 36 million Americans get the flu each year, though the great majority are mild enough (called subclinical) they don't even bother to see a doctor, much less go to a hospital.

As I've disclosed here (see my prior American Lung Association document), the average number of annual Influenza deaths are 1,400 - some years quite a bit more, many years somewhat less.

Soooo, using the CDC estimate of 36 million annual flu cases, one tenth of one percent would come to 36,000 flu-caused deaths!! As opposed to official U.S. National Vital Statistics Mortality documenting an average of 1,400.

Our corrupt national health leaders will do anything to promote the useless, but destructive/deadly flu shot, as they repeat the LIE that one out of every thousand flu infections will cause death, a LIE that is as flagrant as it gets.

Many thanks for the Lung info David M Burd very interesting saved it.Heres the UK`s take offit all. Offit really is a nice elderly family guy, I shouldnt speak about offit like that now anymore.he must be getting complaints from the neighbours from the ammount of larfter coming from his house right now!!Criminal conspiracy full tilt.

@david m burd WOW that document is stunning, thank you so very much. I am grateful for you providing it to us and can’t wait to share it with family and friends. It pains me that many of the people I love subject themselves to the annual flu shot ritual and hopefully this will help them to see through the propaganda. I believe it was you that posted the link to the CDC data regarding the steep increase of Alzheimer’s disease beginning in the mid 80’s, undoubtedly connected to the insane increase in vaccination rates. Thank you again for the link to this data.

davjd m burd

All, Have reviewed my previous condemnation of Offit's flu death regarding massive over-exaggerations, BUT do indeed agree with Offit regarding covid-19 as to fear mongering.

Nevertheless, It is very weird Offit is so dogmatic when it comes to promoting (blatantly toxic) infant vaccinations.

PS to Judy, goldenchameleon, Pft, All

In addition to my previous comments, please read and review the entire document:

@Bayareamom, why, exactly do you believe Offit? Please tell me a few facts? Thanks!

Here again: Please digest all these pneumonia/flu statistics -- that are NO LONGER AVAILABLE FROM TODAY'S CDC (Criminals Dispensing Crap).

@ Judy, goldenchameleon, Pft, All,

Note at the last page of this American Lung Association document, the data comes from the CDC going back in years --- before their total corruption that insanely promotes the neurotoxic flu vaccines.

The Chart showing the combined annual mortality and then the Pneumonia and Flu individually says it all. Bottom line: Pneumonia deaths are 40 times influenza deaths. That's a fact, Jack.

https://www.lung.org/assets/documents/research/pi-trend-report.pdf

Appreciate it if you like, send here on AoA your thoughts.

david m burd

@ goldenchemeleon and Pft

Here's a preview showing how dishonest today's flu mortality has been corrupted. Go to the first big chart showing all the deaths and their respective pneumonia and flu deaths per year. This breakdown stopped in year 2014, and usually all the combined deaths are touted at "flu deaths."

This scam is so bold it is hard to believe they can get away with it, but Mainstream News now just calls all these combined deaths as "flu deaths." As corrupt as it gets, to justify the insane pro flu-vaccine propaganda: Pull this up (let me know what you think!)

Just finished viewing Del's livestream.

Wow.

Offit's change of stance is nothing short of surreal.

Found myself actually agreeing with Offit; never saw that coming.

David Burd:
Our elderly neighbor referred to pneumonia as "the old man's friend." My own father died of pneumonia as a result of stomach cancer metastatic to lung. My sister-in-law died of metastatic breast cancer to lung. So the cause of death can be lumped into this category.

The term “old man’s friend” is often used when referring to pneumonia. Searching for it on Google yields 16,400 results in 0.33 s for this combination. The term is attributed to William Osler...

Pft

Offits words on this virus are the most rational I have heard. Whatever his past misdeeds, I cant help but be grateful for the sanity, it seems in such short supply.

goldenchameleon

@david m burd I eagerly await this document. I will read and share with friends. Thank you. I am indebted to your efforts to educate in this arena.

david m burd

By Offit above, referring to United States stats for the present 'flu season':

"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of March 7, 2020, 36 million to 51 million people have suffered from influenza, 370,000 to 670,000 have been hospitalized, and 22,000 to 55,000 have died from the disease."

Offit spouts a GIGANTIC LIE. For the last 20 years, the actual U.S. TOTAL of annual deaths from "pneumonia/influenza" averages close to (plus or minus) 53,000 a calendar year (Flu-Seasons overlap into two sequential years, so some confusion inevitably arises).

Easily available from numerous government/health-care sites report the U.S. experiences agree that close to 50,000 annual deaths are from "pneumonias."

Yet the CDC, via its ever misdirection, COMBINES both pneumonia deaths AND influenza deaths together, coming to a joint total of 53,000 deaths (every year there are variations).

So, subtracting true pneumonia deaths of about 50,000 per year from the combined pneumonia & Flu total of about 53,000 it is a mathematical certainty that but approximately 3,000 deaths can be blamed on influenza (and many years flu mortality is much less). All this is backed by National VItal Statistics that used to separate pneumonia deaths from influenza deaths, but now these statistics are "corruptly" combined without breaking them down.

I shall submit a Post on this to AoA that is more expansive. This hysteria over covid-19 has been preceeded for many years by the CDC LIES about flu mortality, spurring parents to poison their babies and children.

goldenchameleon

Oh my, Offit himself changing course. Wonder what he knows behind the scenes. Fox News has started running a lot of "I had the coronavirus and it wasn't bad at all" type human interest stories. There has been a spate of these sorts of stories recently in the media to reassure people.

Hera

The cynic in me wonders; is some of this sudden focus on "do no harm" , happening because we are seeing these older gentlemen knowing that they are likely going to be first in line for the coronavirus vaccine, and quite possibly forced to take it when it is made.
They have helped take away others rights to refuse vaccines. They have been okay , or at least never spoken up against it, when our healthy unvaccinated children were given the hobson's choice choice of "forced quarantine" (no school,ever) , for illnesses they did not even have, or injections with things likely to harm them.
And now, they want no panic.Now it appears,at least imo , that they don't want forced quarantine for everyone,(despite being fine with uninfected, unvaccinated children being forced to quarantine away from school for all their childhood life) , even with something that may well be spreading like wildfire.
When you treat others decently, and protect their rights, it often ends up that it is your own that you are protecting also. Similarly, when you fight to treat others badly, to make a new norm that does not involve medical consent, that basically forces vaccines, that refuses to acknowledge the risks of vaccines in any meaningful way, and that quarantines healthy people, well, you can see what happens then, too.

Come-Offit, is it believing in magic now as well..

Oh the irony!

Bob Moffit

'Which will do more harm, the virus or the fear of the virus?"

Offit's entire career has been creating FEAR to sell VACCINES .. so .. the question that Offit should have asked … but .. oddly … DID NOT … is? Which will do more harm .. a VACCINE or the FEAR of the virus? Maybe the reason Offit is not championing a VACCINE lies in his statement:

"The precautionary principle dictates caution to prevent harm. But the precautionary principle also dictates that you don’t cause harm in the name of preventing harm. It will take years to recover from the draconian measures that we are currently instituting."

Odd that Offit suddenly .. after a lifetime doing exactly the opposite … urges 'CAUTION' because "you don't want to cause harm in the name of preventing harm"

Maybe he knows the potential ramifications a failed vaccine will have on an already teetering industry of vaccines?
