  1. Health experts quit CDC, NIH due to ‘bad science’
    Mass exodus amid low morale causing staffing shortages

    Amid low morale fostered by “bad science,” frustrated and alarmed experts with the NIH, CDC and FDA are quitting, creating serious staffing shortages, reports Johns Hopkins University professor Dr. Marty Makary.

    Leadership of the agencies is being questioned, with the authorization, for example, of COVID-19 vaccines for children 4 years old and younger. Pfizer’s trial data found no statistically significant evidence that the shots provide benefit for young children. Meanwhile, members of FDA vaccine panels have expressed concern about the lack of safety data for children.

    Makary, writing on the Substack page Common Sense, says that other decisions by the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Food and Drug Administration that have hurt morale among employees include support for masking in schools and the closing of schools during the pandemic.

    “It’s like a horror movie I’m being forced to watch and I can’t close my eyes,” a senior FDA official told Common Sense. “People are getting bad advice and we can’t say anything.”

    An NIH scientist who spoke on condition of anonymity said there is “no leadership right now.”

    “Suddenly, there’s an enormous number of jobs opening up at the highest level positions,” the scientist said.

    A CDC scientist told Common Sense, also on condition of anonymity, that the agency “failed to balance the risks of COVID with other risks that come from closing schools.”

    “Learning loss, mental health exacerbation’s were obvious early on and those worsened as the guidance insisted on keeping schools virtual,” the scientist said. “CDC guidance worsened racial equity for generations to come. It failed this generation of children.”

    Makary, in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, said doctors working for federal agencies are “muzzled,” prevented from presenting their views on various issues if they conflict with the government’s narrative.

    “I talked with many doctors for this piece at NIH and CDC,” he said, referring to his Substack article, “who are extremely frustrated.”

    “They are smart people,” he said, who know that the vaccines provide no benefit and that there is no health emergency among young children.

    “Not only are [the agencies] bypassing the normal scientific process, but [the scientists] can’t really say anything, because if they do, they know that their jobs are at risk and they will be treated very differently,” said Makary, who is a professor of public health at Johns Hopkins.

    One scientist told Makary that there is no transparency in how the top White House coronavirus adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, makes decisions. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984, doesn’t even consult with the “real experts,” the scientist said.

    To restore credibility, Makary said, public health officials need to display “more humility, less absolutism, more answers like, ‘We don’t know,’ when that’s the right answer, and less paternalism.”

  2. Study ties COVID booster to startling spike in excess deaths
    Researchers examine data from one of world’s most vaccinated nations

    A study based on weekly government data in New Zealand – one of the world’s most vaccinated nations – found that the age groups most likely to have had COVID booster shots had up to 10% more excess deaths.

    Excess mortality is the number of deaths from all causes above what would be typically expected in one year.

    Authored by John Gibson, an economics professor at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand, the study found there were 16 excess deaths per 100,000 booster doses in the country, amounting to more than 400 excess deaths, reported the website The Expose.

    Gibson said that if extrapolated, it amounted to 300,000 excess deaths worldwide.

    In his paper, “The Rollout of COVID-19 Booster Vaccines is Associated with Rising Excess Mortality in New Zealand,” the economist said the bottom line from his study is that the risks of the COVID vaccines outweigh any benefits.

    “The ratio of vaccine risk to benefits likely has swung more towards risk than during the original randomized trials, due to dose-dependent adverse events and to fixation of immune responses on a variant no longer circulating,” he wrote.

    The study found that the age groups “most likely to use boosters had 7-10 percentage point rises in excess mortality rates as boosters were rolled out while the age group that is mostly too young for boosters saw no rise in excess mortality.”

    The Expose noted that last December, New Zealand’s COVID Response minister, Chris Hipkins, reduced the interval between the second dose and the booster shot from six months to four months. That made 82% of vaccinated New Zealanders eligible for a booster by late February 2022.

  3. CDC “System Upgrade” Deletes 52K Death Reports

    The evidence is in, that the CDC, under the guise of a “system update”….is using their MMWR, the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, is not only hiding grotesque numbers of bioweapon injection deaths, they are reclassifying the category for death with new diagnostic codes and in the second segment, Dr. Jane uncovers how they are specifically hiding the deaths of children and young adults
