I understand that you have not been receiving such information from the Ministry of Health. This is because, as I said at the outset, it is not required in New Zealand to record a person’s vaccination status on death certificates. As a result, objective analysis of cause of death has not been possible. This now needs to be required.
Newly published scientific papers should lead to revised pandemic policy
During the last few weeks, a number of scientific papers have been published which should be of great interest to the New Zealand government.
These include a study from Qatar finding that unvaccinated people, who have recovered from a Covid infection, are 97% protected from serious Covid reinfection outcomes in the longer term.
A preprint study from Thailand found that 29% of adolescents suffer cardiac irregularities following their second jab.
A study from Iceland shows that the vaccinated are particularly vulnerable to reinfection and that this effect is stronger among younger age groups.
The Danish government has stopped offering Covid vaccination to those under 18 years and is currently considering stopping it for all those under 50.
Crucially Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, has flagged the need for a complete rethink after missteps as reported by Bloomberg, Walensky said:
“For 75 years, CDC and public health have been preparing for Covid-19, and in our big moment, our performance did not reliably meet expectations. I want us all to do better and it starts with CDC leading the way. My goal is a new, public health action-oriented culture at CDC that emphasizes accountability, collaboration, communication, and timeliness.”
Government pandemic experts and advisors are not required to defend their policies in public forums
On July 12th I wrote to the Hon. Andrew Little asking him:
“We wish to reiterate in conclusion that it is very necessary and critical to seek clear and unequivocal data concerning the prevalence of the specific conditions which are overloading hospitals and GPs. No consistent causal analysis is possible without this information. This data should be freely available to a wider range of independent competent analysts and researchers so that you may receive better advice.”
I received a reply to the effect that he had forwarded the information to the Ministry of Health for review, but I have heard nothing further and I am not aware of any action being taken.
For the last two years your advisors at the Ministry of Health have been allowed to offer the government advice unchallenged by the need for debate. Encouraged by your insistence on “one source of truth”, the media have also given them a free ride and simultaneously attacked anybody raising questions about vaccine safety. This has created a distorted perception of safety among the general public.
The investigation of such effects will remain unavailable as long as Covid vaccination status is omitted from death certificates and as long as your advisors are not required to defend their positions in a public forum. These positions are inconsistent with international standards and policies.
I note that fifteen months ago I was in support of New Zealand’s pandemic policies. My personal support for the government’s pandemic initiatives evaporated as a result of my professional assessment of continuing Covid science publishing. See here a consultant cardiologist speaking on primetime UK television about his concerns that pandemic advice to governments from medical professionals has failed to take account of evolving scientific findings.
Without revision of pandemic policy all cause deaths will continue at unacceptable levels
Early on in the pandemic you and your government, in agreement with all other parties, appeared to be acting in good faith based on the advice you had been given. Subsequently it has become obvious that mRNA vaccination methods have adverse effects that go beyond those of any previous vaccines. Most people involved in decision-making underestimated the mobility, toxicity, and persistence of genetic sequences and adjuvants in the vaccine.
The time has come now to revise current New Zealand mRNA vaccination protocols. The latest research and UK ONS data unequivocally show that the loss of life and obfuscation of data involved with continuing current protocols is both substantial and unacceptable.
Continued faith in and reliance on the title ‘vaccine’ (when applied to mRNA injections), as an apparent guarantee of efficacy and safety, is misplaced and foolhardy, as well as misleading for the public.
All political parties need to revise their pandemic knowledge base according to continuing Covid science publishing.
I believe you are in a position to use your communication skills to take a lead in this process and initiate an appropriate public discussion of the limitations of current policy and the possible remedies. In the absence of appropriate debate, we are facing continuing unprecedented record high levels of all-cause mortality including impacts on working age and young people. This is a serious and deteriorating situation which demands immediate action.
