What happens when Dr. Anthony Fauci disagrees with the World Health Organization (WHO), regarding vaccines? It could be a sign that we can return to legitimate scientific discussion.
The WHO Director-General suddenly sounds more like Dr. Robert Malone, and Dr. Geert Vanden Boomssche, and Robert Malone, who has been insisting that you can’t vaccine your way out from a pandemic for many months. The WHO statements echo the Great Barrington Declaration, authors. To reduce serious illness and death, they believe that vaccines should be given to those who are elderly or at-risk in order to prevent future outbreaks.
Tedros’ comments were made after Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins acknowledged the protective effects of recovered immunity. Recent press appearances by NIH leaders attributed large exposure to the South African delta variant as one reason for omicron’s low severe disease rates. These statements are similar to those of Dr. Michael Mina, Harvard, who spoke about layer immunity to SARS/Cov-2. Mina described in an interview how it would develop through multiple exposures.
CDC disease burden estimation shows that more than 200 million Americans have had a COVID-related infection. Nearly 205 million people are fully vaccinated. Our public health officials tell us that vaccines can still prevent serious illness and death. It is possible to see a Venn diagram of Americans: those who have recovered, got vaccinated, and then recovered. This gives us a positive picture of the next wave of omicron. We have probably accumulated many of the layers Mina predicted.
On Wednesday, Rochelle Walensky, Director of CDC, stated to CNN that she wanted people to be able to gather over the holidays. Safe gathering means that everyone must be vaccinated. California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that boosters would be required for healthcare workers who have the highest past exposure rates. Washington D.C., Boston, and Chicago just announced vaccine mandates that do not recognize recovered immunity.
Yesterday, Pfizer received an FDA emergency authorization to use its outpatient medication for mild to moderate COVID. Because it interferes with viral replication, it should work with any variant. A growing number of doctors are now using other medications to treat symptomatic patients who live outside of the hospital. Research has also shown that omicron doesn’t invade the lungs like previous variants. There are reports now that omicron patients’ blood tests are not showing the inflammation markers found in severe disease. As Tedros and other doctors recommend, this is a good time to pause boosters.
