Israeli Epidemiologist Says, "I Told You So"

    Israel has been at the forefront of the unconventional/politically-oriented means of combatting a respiratory virus.

    Despite nearly 90% of the adult population being fully vaccinated, with vaccines originally touted as nearly 100% effective in preventing COVID-19 infection, Israel is currently experiencing the highest rate of COVID-19 infections since the pandemic began. There is no magic solution in sight except ultimate herd immunity which the latest variant, omicron, may well bring about.

    The same is true for virtually every Western country, including the United States, that has followed the same procedures and protocols. Having, for political reasons, stupidly committed to doing the impossible, defeating or eradicating a respiratory virus, it is time to admit failure.

    ...

    Recently Professor Ehud Qimron, a leading authority on epidemiology and the head of Microbiology and Immunology at Tel Aviv University, wrote a scathing public letter to the Israeli Ministry of Health that could have been addressed to the FDA, the CDC, the Biden administration, and the denizens of the American corporate and social media.


    In the end, the truth will always be revealed, and the truth about the coronavirus policy is beginning to be revealed. When the destructive concepts collapse one by one, there is nothing left but to tell the experts who led the management of the pandemic-- we told you so.

    Two years too late you finally realize that a respiratory virus cannot be defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. You do not admit it, you have admitted almost no mistake in the last two years, but in retrospect it is clear that you have failed miserably in almost all your actions, and even the media is already having a hard time covering your shame.

    You refused to admit that the infection comes in waves that fade by themselves, despite years of observations and scientific knowledge. You insisted on attributing every decline of a wave solely to your actions, and so through false propaganda, “you overcame the plague.” And again you defeated it, and again and again.
    Professor Qimron continues:

    You refused to admit that recovery is more protective than a vaccine, despite previous knowledge and observations showing that non-recovered vaccinated people are more likely to be infected than recovered people. You refused to admit that the vaccinated are contagious despite the observations. Based on this, you hoped to achieve herd immunity by vaccination-- and you failed that as well.
    In the later part of the letter:

    However, from the heights of your hubris, you have also ignored the fact that in the end the truth will be revealed. And it begins to be revealed. The truth is you have brought the public’s trust in you to an unprecedented low, and you have eroded your status as a source of authority. The truth is that you have burned hundreds of billions of shekels to no avail-- for publishing intimidation, for ineffective tests, for destructive lockdowns and for disrupting life in the last two years.

    You have destroyed the education of our children and their future. You made children feel guilty, scared, smoke, drink, get addicted, and quarrel, as school principals around the country attest. You have harmed livelihoods, the economy, human rights, mental health, and physical health.

    Are these vaccines made by the mega rich pharmaceuticals on purpose with a short efficiency rate, so that governments need to keep buying more? It seems to me, that vaccine 1 did not work, so there was 2, which did not work, and then we have booster 1, which does not seem to work either, then booster 2, 3, 4, 5, and on and on!

    The CEO of AstraZeneca, Pascal Soriot, was paid staggering £15 MILLION last year for his company's work in creating their vaccine!

    @Aaron

    Isn’t the typical flue vaccine and pneumonia vaccine for viruses?

    I was a bit confused by the sentence, “Two years too late you finally realize that a respiratory virus cannot be defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. ” and the realized that is why we have to get the vaccines (except pneumonia) ever year. “Respiratory virus cannot be defeated” is very true! At best it may be thwarted or symptoms lessened.


    Interesting letter.

    Do you look at the Jerusalem Post?

    According to Jon

    only the unvaxxxxed are sick and dying. Should not be much longer and there will be no unvaxxxxed.

    By 'cannot be defeated' is meant cannot be irradicated. The flu vaccines, which are marginally effective at best, are not touted as the only mechanism to herd immunity.


    No.

    No. There has never been a cold vaccine, and flu vaccines have never been very effective.

    How long can the EUA even stand at this point? Who will say this is over? Do you think anyone currently in a position of power wishes to relinquish any of it? Does anyone here really believe that? The dems NEED it if they have any hope of cheating through the midterms. Fact.

    New York city new mayor will allow illegals to vote if they’ve been there 30 days. #1 how insane to even state a 30 day rule, laughable. #2 they are illegal so how would they legally have any right to vote? They don’t even legally have the right to be here. We do have laws……dems just don’t pay any attention to them. #3 it’s NYC so who even cares, we know how they vote, but the left will use it as precedent to implement elsewhere.

    Will the highly contagious Omicron variant result in "vaccinating" enough of the "unvaccinated" to achieve "herd immunity?" What is the cost, i.e. of those vaccinated, how many without co-morbidity die? In the last 3 months, how many died from Covid (rather than with Covid) and what percentage were fully vaccinated and what percentage were unvaccinated.

    Something’s fishy about the numbers and sources in the article mentioned above

    The population of Israel in 2022 is estimated at 8,922,892
    According to Israel’s own new source as of January 14, 2022 a half million have recieved the second booster shot. (Israel HaYom)


    Half a million Israelis have gotten 2nd COVID booster shot

    Published on 0-14-2022
    https://www.israelhayom.com/2022/01/14/half-a-million-israelis-have-gotten-2nd-covid-booster-shot/
    Israel has administered a second COVID booster shot to more than 500,000 people, the Health Ministry said Friday.

    Israel began administering second boosters to the most vulnerable late last month and later began offering them to everyone over 60.

    Authorities hope the additional boosters will blunt a wave of infections driven by the Omicron variant. Health Ministry figures show Israel currently has some 260,000 active cases. But only 289 patients are listed as seriously ill, far fewer than during previous waves.

    Israel has reported 8,293 deaths from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

    We've already reached herd immunity.

    Apparently the result is less than claimed...

    We know the fatality rate, which is decreasing with each variety, and the number of deaths. Math tells us the number infected.

    I heard that was true. :)

    How much Darwinian thinking of the survival of the fittest is validated by herd immunity?

    Herd immunity has nothing to do with Darwinism.

    You don't think Darwin would have found the thinking agreeing with his?
