‘The worst public health mistakes in history’

“The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic on Tuesday presented the testimony of four public health experts, including Martin Kulldorff PhD, who described the government’s response as the ‘worst public health mistakes in history’ … [He further] described ‘sending sick people to nursing homes’ as ‘criminal’ …”


“[Marty Makary MD] said ‘public health officials have made many tragic mistakes during the pandemic,’ including:

“‘Ignoring natural immunity … closing schools, masking toddlers … pushing boosters for young people, bypassing FDA expert panel customary votes that we’ve been using for decades …’

“‘The greatest perpetrator of misinformation during the pandemic has been the United States government’ when it claimed ‘vaccinated immunity was far greater than natural immunity’ and that ‘masks were effective.’

“[He] … pointed out that myocarditis is ‘four to 28 times more common after the vaccine’ but that the government has said ‘young people benefit from a booster’ ..

“‘CDC and the FDA and people at the NIH made up their mind before the trials were completed,’ said Makary. ‘They decided babies were going to get vaccines before the study was done. And then [they] found no statistically significant difference in efficacy between the two groups and they just authorized it anyway’ …


“[Jay Bhattacharya MD] said ‘On what empirical basis were schools closed? Did public health decision-makers consider the harms of their policies as thoroughly as their putative benefits? Why did authorities ignore recovered immunity or failure of the vaccine to prevent disease transmission?’ …

“‘Public health bureaucrats operated more like dictators than scientists during the pandemic, sealing themselves off from credible outside criticism’ …

“[He] described the policies as a ‘widespread violation of civil liberties’ … [He also] questioned why ‘public health authorities ignore[d] clear scientific data that Covid infection [and] acquired immunity is as strong or stronger than vaccine-acquired immunity’ …

Myths told by COVID experts — debunked

“… Public health officials actively propagated misinformation that ruined lives and forever damaged public trust in the medical profession …

“Misinformation #1: Natural immunity offers little protection compared to vaccinated immunity

“A Lancet study looked at 65 major studies in 19 countries on natural immunity. The researchers concluded that natural immunity was at least as effective as the primary Covid vaccine series …

“Misinformation #2: Masks prevent Covid transmission …

“[A Cochran Review] published last month by a highly respected Oxford research team found that masks had no significant impact on Covid transmission …

“Misinformation #3: School closures reduce Covid transmission

“The CDC ignored the European experience of keeping schools open, most without mask mandates. Transmission rates were no different, evidenced by studies conducted in Spain and Sweden.

“Misinformation #4: Myocarditis from the vaccine is less common than from the infection …

“… [Myocarditis] is six to 28 times more common after the Covid vaccine than after the infection among 16- to 24-year-old males. Tens of thousands of children likely got myocarditis, mostly subclinical, from a Covid vaccine they did not need because they were entirely healthy or because they already had Covid.

“Misinformation #5: Young people benefit from a vaccine booster …

“[The] evidence was never there that they lower Covid mortality in young, healthy people … White House pressure to recommend boosters for all was so intense that the FDA’s two top vaccine experts left the agency in protest …

“Misinformation #9: Data on the bivalent vaccine is ‘crystal clear’ …

“In my opinion, the data are crystal clear that young people should not get the bivalent vaccine. It would have also spared many children myocarditis.

“Misinformation #10: One in five people get long Covid …

“[A] UK study found that only 3% of COVID patients had residual symptoms lasting 12 weeks. It’s often normal to experience mild fatigue or weakness for weeks after being sick and inactive and not eating well. Calling these cases long Covid is the medicalization of ordinary life …”
