Covid-19 Likely in U.S. in Mid-December 2019, CDC Scientists Report
(Wall Street Journal, 12/1/20) – archived copy at http://archive.is/Y1whn#selection-2493.239-2493.262

Note: Covid-19 antibodies are not 100% proof of exposure. …which is why the title of the Italian paper is “…detection of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies…” and the title of the US is “…identify SARS-CoV-2-reactive antibodies”

Antibodies are generated somewhat randomly, so even someone with no exposure to Covid can have some Covid-reactive antibodies.

Head of Pfizer Research: Covid Vaccine is Female Sterilization

Quote:
Excerpt:

Head of Pfizer Research: Covid Vaccine is Female Sterilization

The vaccine contains a spike protein (see image) called syncytin-1, vital for the formation of human placenta in women. If the vaccine works so that we form an immune response AGAINST the spike protein, we are also training the female body to attack syncytin-1, which could lead to infertility in women of an unspecified duration.

I just don’t understand how you can promote stuff like that. According to that article thousands of women have already been sterilized. That is crazy. From what I can tell the Dr that made that remark was talking about the vaccine sterilizing the virus not women. That interview was done in August. His latests comments are that the vaccine will allow life to return to normal soon. Having 70% of the population sterilized would certainly not be a return to normal.

They also quote Dr. Michael Yeadon demanding all trials to be stopped. On Nov 28th he said that the pandemic is over! No need for vaccines because the pandemic does not exist!!! Tell that to the people overwhelmed dealing with it!

These same people twist reality to claim that something that is very real isn’t. I have a close friend that is a vascular surgeon. The stress and workloads she is dealing with now are certainly not fake or a hoax. It is disgusting to promote such damaging misinformation!

One of the other false narratives being promoted is that the temporary hospitals set up to deal with this are fake. They take a real picuture and flat out lie about it to get people to believe the false narrative that is being promoted. Watch this:

Snopes has made available an extensive discussion of the “fetal tissue” claim, just to close that loop:

You can evaluate a fact checking site by seeing whose toes they’ve stepped on, and who’s pissed off at them.

Fun fact: Wolfgang Wodarg once employed Gert Postel, an imposter who pretended to be a physician (Postel was a postman). Became a politician, maybe because that corresponds better to his talents.

Hi everyone, please don’t respond to or quote anything that could be considered a conspiracy theory. Please go back and edit or delete posts that could lead the discussion down that road.

And @Thunderay, please take heed:

Oops.

More testing required. Dagnabbit.

Quote:

Pfizer’s chairman says it’s not clear whether people who are vaccinated can still spread COVID-19

Pfizer’s CEO said it’s not clear if the company’s coronavirus vaccine will no longer be able to spread the virus to other people.
Albert Bourla told NBC’s “Dateline”: “I think this is something that needs to be examined. We are not certain about that right now with what we know.”
Independent researchers have already made it clear that the trials used to test the vaccine did not examine its effects on transmission.

Parts of Europe did give 5000 euros to people who “ filled out paperwork”. It was part of their governments response to get out COVID-19 aid to people during this time. It was reported in April in The New York Times. There are no nefarious undertones or requirements involving the first born or voting records. You did not even need to be dead or stupid to be eligible. Telling enough times and little changes or misunderstandings along the way and you could end up with a good false rumor though.

NYTimes article

“When Germany shut down public life to halt the spread of the new coronavirus last month, Laurenz Bostedt, a freelance photographer, watched as one contract after another was canceled, until his entire expected income had disappeared.

On Tuesday, 5,000 euros, or about $5,400, landed in his bank account, just three days after he had submitted an application for immediate assistance. The city-state of Berlin had pledged on March 19 that money would be distributed quickly to self-employed people and small- business owners who were unable to cover their basic expenses………”

This is a very aggressive virus.

Quote:

… both Matias and her mother’s friend wore masks inside her car, which had the windows down for extra ventilation.

But shortly after that car ride, Burke’s mother began exhibiting symptoms. She quarantined in her room with her son, Burke told NorthJersey.com, but both contracted the virus.

“We tried to wear masks in the house and did everything we could to keep my father safe,” Burke told the local paper. But one after another, every member of her house fell ill.

MtnDon, hank, Northern Harrier. Forgive my ineptitude. I cannot figure out how to link a very interesting article. It is a Nov.30 article in Neuroscience News entitled How Covid-19 Reaches The Brain. I think you guys might enjoy. David
