The video "Mass vaccination in a pandemic, benefits versus risks" dated March 9, and the report "Expert sounds the alarm about risks of mass vaccination dated March 6 on the current global mass vaccination by leading virus and vaccine expert Dr Geert Vanden Bossche1 is earth-shaking, as he talks about mass vaccination programs worldwide.
Expressing genuine concerns whether vaccination was the right thing to do against this super smart mutating coronavirus, he stated, "If you go to war, make sure you have the right weapon at the right time against the enemy that you understand enough."
Dr Bossche warns that the global vaccination program amidst the global pandemic does more harm than good.
He further warns that the vaccination:
– creates more asymptomatic cases to spread the virus, as the vaccines do not prevent infection and transmission;
– merely suppresses COVID-19 symptoms and can prevent hospitalization and deaths. But at what price?
– only stimulates artificially induced antigen-specific antibodies and not natural killer (NK) cells needed to neutralize the coronavirus effectively;
– antigen-specific antibodies, which may not work on new variants, and may stay around forever and compete with, undermine and even destroy NK cells, our capable and loyal warriors;
– helps create new variants and "teaches" the virus on "viral immune escape"; and,
– is a "lose-lose" situation that is dangerous at all levels, emphasizing that dealing with the coronavirus and pandemic must be based on science.
In a nutshell, if we aren't cautious, humanity–facing a "global catastrophe without equal"–will suffer exponentially by this "emperor" virus.
In June 2020, Ken Frazier, CEO of Merck, implored the need to understand the coronavirus more before rushing for a quick solution via vaccines. Merck is the gold standard for vaccine development and had produced four out of seven successful vaccines in world history.
Merck was honest enough to give up its COVID vaccine development program to this mutating "emperor" virus to focus on a treatment or cure.
The Director of US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in stating in a CNN report on March 2 that gains made in the US including the mRNA vaccination could be wiped out by new variants, supports Dr Bossche's warning.
The US Government National Institutes of Health (NIH) has confirmed that the mRNA vaccine is a form of gene therapy, an approach that can have "serious health risks such as toxicity, inflammation and cancer."
Already, there are many reported cases worldwide about unexplained deaths and suffering from severe side effects after taking the Pfizer product.
Being constructive and based on Dr Bossche's revelatory warning, we appeal to the government and the relevant agencies to:
– urgently consider deferring, if necessary, the mRNA vaccination program to truly curb long-term harm;
– do an honest "benefits versus risks" analysis for every vaccine purchased based on the latest information. It is unfair to lump these vaccines together as not all vaccines are equal. We are not anti-vaxxers but pro-safe vaccines;
– keep its promise not to force–directly or indirectly–vaccination, especially with the experimental mRNA vaccine, which is a breach of the Nuremberg Code; and,
– consider (after a study) using more appropriate, much safer, and tried and tested vaccines such as using inactivated or attenuated virus technology while choosing the right timing to enforce the vaccination program.
Therefore, we urge the government to immediately approve Ivermectin2, a re-purposed "wonder drug" that's easily available, very safe and effective in preventing and treating COVID-19 and also fund a low-cost Ivermectin Program.
We are aware that Ivermectin poses a major financial threat to some big pharmaceutical firms and unfortunately. Ivermectin is being discredited and demonized by people with selfish interest, whose biased views must be seriously dismissed.
Ivermectin is already proven to be safe for over 40 years. The government has nothing to lose by immediately approving Ivermectin in Malaysia, as a prescribed drug.
There is no need to wait for clinical trials as people are dying fast and getting infected from COVID-19.
We state clearly here that we do not have vested interest, directly or indirectly, in the manufacturing, selling or distribution of Ivermectin.
1 Dr Geert Vanden Bossche is a leading global environmental virologist and microbiologist for 30 years and involved in human vaccine development for 23 years with various major pharmaceutical firms.
He was with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as Senior Program Officer in Vaccine Discovery for Global Health and coordinated the Ebola Vaccine Program on behalf of the Global Alliance for Vaccines & Immunization (GAVI) founded by the World Health Organization (WHO).
2 Ivermectin was originally developed as an anti-parasitic drug in 1975 by a Japanese scientist who won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015, as a multi-purpose drug. Ivermectin has saved lives of millions in the Third World from tropical diseases without harmful side effects. During the pandemic, studies with smaller randomized clinical trials in 56 mostly developing countries show that Ivermectin can prevent and treat/cure COVID-19 and substantially reduce mortality rate.
Ivermectin is promoted by the independent Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC Alliance) which made a public presentation to the US Senate on 8 December 2020.
Ivermectin is also supported by respected research scientists like Dr Andrew Hill, a renowned pharmacologist from University of Liverpool and Consultant to WHO, which is expected to soon endorse Ivermectin as an anti-COVID-19 drug).
Like Dr Hill, another renowned UK research scientist Dr Tess Lawrie presented evidence-based meta-analysis using similar recent studies (randomized clinical trials) on Ivermectin, who found that Ivermectin substantially reduces risk of dying by 83 % of cases under study. There was also an 88% reduction in risk of infection and preventing transmission.
The following countries: Bulgaria, US, Slovakia, Macedonia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Utter Pradesh with 210 million people, Bihar, Kerala, Mexico and in Latin America have already either approved or legally allowed Ivermectin under prescription with spectacular success. It is estimated that Ivermectin could save 60,000 lives per month in the US and 250,000 worldwide.
