    Those doctors care to explain why they are contributing to the spread of covid by not allowing for the increased testing at home testing would allow? Health Ministers, how much is your kickback?

  4. Huge Study Of 145 Countries Finds Major Increase Of Death After Covid Jabs were introduced.

    A bombshell study of 145 of the most COVID-19 vaccinated countries in the world has found that there was a major increase of transmission and death after the jabs were introduced.

    The 99-page study, which was called “Worldwide Bayesian Causal Impact Analysis of Vaccine Administration on Deaths and Cases Associated with COVID-19: A Big Data Analysis of 145 Countries,” found that in the United States alone, the coronavirus jab has caused a staggering 38% more Covid cases per million. On top of that, the COVID-19 shot has caused a 31% increase in deaths per million.

    The researchers who carried out the study found that almost 90% (89.84%) of the 145 countries experienced this negative effect after the COVID-19 shots were made available. The study stated:

    “Results indicate that the treatment (vaccine administration) has a strong and statistically significant propensity to causally increase the values in either y1 [variable chosen for deaths per million] or y2 [variable chosen for cases per million] over and above what would have been expected with no treatment.

    y1 showed an increase/decrease ratio of (+115/-13), which means 89.84% of statistically significant countries showed an increase in total deaths per million associated with COVID-19 due directly to the causal impact of treatment initiation [vaccines].

    y2 showed an increase/decrease ratio of (+105/-16) which means 86.78% of statistically significant countries showed an increase in total cases per million of COVID-19 due directly to the causal impact of treatment initiation.”

    Arguably the most jarring part of the study’s findings is that the countries that recorded the fewest COVID-19 deaths in 2020 then had the largest increases in cases and deaths once the COVID-19 jabs were introduced.

    “Countries with few COVID-19 deaths in the year 2020 appear to have fared the worst of all countries after vaccine administration (Thailand, Vietnam, Mongolia, Taiwan, Seychelles, Cambodia, etc.),” the study said. “The causal impact results from vaccine administration seen in these countries [is] hundreds or thousands of percentage increases in total deaths and cases per million. We can be most statistically confident in due to the direct increase of COVID-19 associated deaths and cases after vaccine administration, where prior to vaccine administration there were few or none.”

    • Wow Angel, I thought I was the research master on this ANR thread … NUFF RESPECT!

      Maybe I can retire now ha ha ha ha

      • I suggest that you research the credentials of the author before you get all excited. Even the author identifies the limitations of his work which are significant. He’s using a very blunt tool with imperfect data so his findings need to be taken with a grain of salt. And you don’t have to read too carefully to understand the author’s bias. Can’t wait for the peer review, assuming someone bothers…

        And Brixie, once again you’ve shown your cards. You think “Angel” is a research wiz. This questionable paper has been flagged on all the usually bogus newsfeeds and social media platforms that you love so much, including twitter.

          • Sadly, ‘Say Waffle’ Gaston Browne and the main stream media has turned you into a fear-driven, and hateful automaton. Thankfully, many of us still haven’t succumbed to their lies, rhetoric and propaganda, and we continue to think for ourselves.


    • Hello Angel all the best for the new year, kindly check your Sources please.
      Let me be clear I have no desire to attack the author angel as this person copied verbatim what was posted on red media news
      ( ).
      With that out of the way here we go again with the fake news, proving that you can’t fix stupid , there is no cure, not even a vaccine to stop the spread or prevent severe bouts of stupidity.
      The study referenced in the article appears legit until you read it.
      However this piece of fake news is outright dangerous considering the present surge of Covid cases we are seeing in Antigua, can’t stay silent on this one.

      The “study” referenced in this “bomb shell piece of reporting
      is one by Kyle A. Beattie* who states he is a Political Science PhD student at the department of Political Science University of Alberta Alberta, Canada , and published a reprint of his study on research gate on November 15th 2021,
      ( first red flag just check, This study ended up as the primary source for the article on a website called Red Voice Media (second red flag After reading it I feel comfortable stating that this study and it subsequent bomb shell article in red voice media are nothing more than a Turd depressed up in a 3 piece suit when no clinical relevance regarding Covid treatments or vaccines. Worse the false equivalency of concluding that patients treated for covid die in greater numbers than those who are not treated is misleading at best , and plain stupid in light of the facts and clinical evidence. People tend to seek medical intervention when they are really feeling sick and as we know in Covid as well as any other pathology that early intervention and treatment tends to lead to a better outcome, however that does not always mean you survive the illness (cancer or diabetes per example). Well this author just told you that this is incorrect “statistically” speaking. I will spare you reading all 99 pages as it is 45 minutes of your life totally wasted time you can never get back, just read the first 5 pages followed by the references pages 59 down to page 64. If you have ever read or done a study on any serious level you may recoil in horror.. the rest are useless pictures of graphs as a filler for the 99 page study. You will find the link to the study in the red media article if you have wish to read it for your self.

      Allow me to provide an example why i have serious problems with the study that appear to be the foundation of this bombshell revelation. Many years ago a group of fellow students at the University I attended set out on a study investigating the correlation between the use of alcohol and the amount of accidents resulting in knee injuries while skiing. Much to their surprise when the data the students had compiled was analyzed it appeared to show that drinking alcohol while skiing significantly reduced the risk of injury, one could thus logically and statically conclude that bases on the “evidence” drinking alcohol while skiing was an excellent way to reduced the risk of injury. Now that’s what we called good news getting drunk prevented injuries while skiing.. Perfect. What these students had failed to consider was the amount of training and level of experience of these skiers. When that was added to the data it showed that mostly unfit inexperienced skiers suffer injuries and that the consumption of alcohol increased the risk of injury overall, regardless of fitness and experience levels of the skiers. The study that this article on red media is based on suffers from the same basic mistakes when it comes to intervention related mortality in Covid patients.
      Simply put wearing your seat belts may kill you however the evidence shows it is more likely to save your life, with that said a sure way to avoid being killed by your seat belt is to walk or ride your bike instead of motor vehicle to get around. Same goes for the current treatments for Covid including vaccines. Prevention beats any cure any day, any time, wear your mask when you go out of your house or car and keep your distance if you can.

      • @Asclepius Galen
        WOW… You sure wrote a LONG attack on my post for something you claim is not true.

        OK… Explain this. Why are INSURANCE companies reporting huge increases of deaths compared to previous years?
        “Scott Davidson, the CEO of Indianapolis-based insurance company OneAmerica, said last week that the death rate in Indiana is up a stunning 40% from pre-pandemic levels among working-age people.”

        • You’re kidding, right? Scott Davidson never suggested that the increased death rate is attributed to vaccines. What he said was …”the deaths that are being reported as covid deaths greatly understate the actual death loses amongst working age people from the pandemic”. He them goes on to talk about disability claims. He then states that his company is considering raising premiums for companies that are located in counties with low vaccination rates because of the higher risk factor.

          Where did the Scott Davidson video taken from? I’ll tell you. It’s part of a news conference held by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and the Indiana Hospital Association about the current covid surge. It was held on December 30, 2021. You can watch the whole thing here.

          Scott Davidson starts speaking at minute 21:22 and more importantly at minute 34:41 and minute 50:55. I would encourage you to watch the entire video, you might actually learn something. If you have hours available to watch conspiracy videos, you have time to watch this video!

          One major reason that death and disability claims are up is that the hospitals are so over run with covid patients that people requiring non-covid care can’t get the care they urgently need (e.g. surgeries, emergency/trama care, etc. This is further compounded by staffing issues at hospitals due to stress on primary healthcare workers that results in lower staffing levels. Another category of deaths is comprised of covid patients who seemingly recover do a degree only to die subsequently do to health condition that was aggravated by contracting covid, but covid is not stated on the death certificate. So those are a couple of very simple explanations why deaths are up from pre-pandemic levels.

          • Say what, your 100% correct in this case. I read and saw the interview myself. ignorance ( lack of knowledge) is very dangerous but can be remedied with education. When that fails stupidity is the only outcome and stupidity is proven to be more lethal than any corona/ covid virus

            The impact that covid 19 is having on healthcare services has allowed conditions that normally would be detected early and mostly at managed easily to become, in some cases fatal conditions. Add the deaths directly related to covid 19 complications to that and the only logical outcome is a significantly increased death rate in the adult population , this has nothing to do with vaccines.

            Note i am not suggesting that some people have not died as a result of A covid 19 vaccine, they have, the data is out there to see for all who care to read. Yet so far the evidence clearly indicates that the benefits are well worth the risk, unless you are one of those who actually did get very sick or died after covid 19 vaccination.
            In that case I can see why you have a different opinion based on your personal experience.
            I would like to share some reading that may assist to put this covid 19 in context with the side note that if we fail to learn from history we are bound to repeat our mistakes.


          • @Say What?
            There are so many inaccuracies and outright falsehoods in what you’ve said that I don’t even know where to start. OK, let’s start with “the hospitals are so over run with covid patients”. The hospitals are overrun by VACCINATED people suffering from the bad effects of the injection. The “staffing issues at hospitals due to stress on primary healthcare workers” is a result of the hospital FIRING the workers for refusing the ‘gene modification’ injection.
            Your claim that people came to the hospital “to die subsequently do to health condition that was aggravated by contracting covid, but covid is not stated on the death certificate.” NO that is false. It has widely reported and proven that hospitals are falsifying the cause of death on the death certificates to earn 10’s of thousands of dollars from the government payoff schemas.
            …and @Asclepius Galen – ya, ya…. 100% correct. Ha Ha Ha Ha

      • @Asclepius Galen

        A look into YOUR SOURCES shows they are left wing biased.

        mediabiasfactcheck sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy.

        wikipedia – Five studies, including two from Harvard researchers, have found a left-wing bias at Wikipedia: A Harvard study found Wikipedia articles are more left-wing than Encyclopedia Britannica. Another paper from the same Harvard researchers found left-wing editors are more active and partisan on the site.

        It seems to me that you have an agenda to prove that the ‘pandemic’ is real so the global reset being push forward by people like Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum can be pushed into existence to enslave the people of the world. Sorry, you are not the kind of person I listen to…. your sources of information are tainted and your agenda is wicked..

      • @Asclepius Galen

        I find the NAME you chose to use on this forum interesting….

        Asclepius or Hepius is a hero and god of medicine in ancient Greek religion and mythology. He is the son of Apollo and Coronis, or Arsinoe, or of Apollo alone. Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts; his daughters are Hygieia, Iaso, Aceso, Aegle and Panacea.

        Aelius Galenus or Claudius Galenus, often Anglicized as Galen or Galen of Pergamon, was a Greek physician, surgeon and philosopher in the Roman Empire. Considered to be one of the most accomplished of all medical researchers of antiquity, Galen influenced the development of various scientific disciplines, including anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and neurology, as well as philosophy and logic.

      • @Asclepius Galen
        The study on the “Major Increases Of Death After Covid Jabs” I posted MIGHT have some serious problems in how their data was analyzed… I don’t know, I’m not a statistician. Other, more competent people can do that in the days to come. My purpose was to provide evidence that it is the ‘vaccinated’ people worldwide who are dying and being injured by the covid shots, NOT the unvaccinated! IT IS THE JAB ITSELF THAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEMS WE ARE WITNESSING. I don’t understand why people can’t see this…. Healthy athletes around the world are dropping down on the field almost daily now with complications from being triple jabbed and boosted.



        • Really, I don’t know what your trying to say here. What problems are we witnessing? I’m serious, what’s the point your trying to make?

          Look, your statement above is poorly constructed. You said, and I quote, “My purpose was to provide evidence that it is the ‘vaccinated’ people worldwide who are dying and being injured by the covid shots, NOT the unvaccinated!” Well of course, the unvaccinated are not dying or being injured by the vaccine… BECAUSE THEY DID NOT TAKE THE VACCINE! Isn’t that obvious? What evidence is needed to support this statement?

          And the way you phrase things is hyperbolic. You say people worldwide are dying and being injured by the covid shots. The overwhelming majority of these “injuries” include temporary pain at the injection site, fever, headache and/or fatigue. It’s a stretch to call those “injuries”. Severe adverse effects are rare, in the order of 0.01% of injections. Yes they happen, as they do with all vaccines. Here’s a great summary produced by Western Australia Department of Health concerning vaccine side effects for a whole bunch of diseases.

          So, are people claiming that no one has died from vaccinations? I don’t think anyone is making that claim. Unfortunately some people have died, but the chance of that happening appears to be negligible. You make it out to be of epic proportions. If I’m wrong, show the proof. All other vaccines and many medications that are routinely taken everyday for all sorts of medical conditions could also be potentially fatal, in rare cases.

          So, I think the point you are trying to make is that you feel that people all over the world are dropping like flies because of the covid vaccines, making specific reference to athletes who have been triple jabbed and boosted. More hyperbole…didn’t know that all athletes are triple jabbed and boosted and that such sudden deaths were occurring at a greater rate than what would be expected if the pandemic had never happened. No evidence is provided.

          Fact Check-No evidence COVID-19 vaccines are linked to athletes collapsing or dying from myocarditis

          So what is it that the vaccinated can’t admit to? You haven’t made a case for anything.

      • Good day Asclepius Galen, I also wish you the best for 2022.

        I wonder if you can answer this question that I have posted on many occasions to the pro-vaxxers and also the vaccinated, but I’m yet to receive any answer – hopefully, you will reply.

        The genuine question I would like you to respond to is this:

        If those who are now fully vaccinated have followed all the vaccine mandates, and protocols from the government, and the ‘scientific’ community, IF THE VACCINES DO WORK, WHAT IS GOING ON?

        It is now over a year into the mass vaccination campaigns, and even before they began, the public health experts, media and politicians EXPLICITLY and REPEATEDLY promised that the vaccines would end the pandemic if enough people took them.

        Again, I ask you, If the vaccines work, WHAT IS GOING ON?

        Finally – if you didn’t already know – that if any of the vaccinated do not take their BOOSTER SHOTS within 3-4 months of their last vaccination jab, they will then be classed as UNVACCINATED.

        This was never the case from the outset, when the vaccines were first introduced to the WORLD.

        Asclepius, I do hope you can answer these questions, because you come over like someone who MAY tackle the current pro-vax view instead of just criticising like others, who cannot gave coherent ANSWERS like regulars on this thread like ‘Say What’.


        • Hey Brixie, I’ll give you credit again. Yes I am an automaton, Model Number KX007, model name “The Bullshit Detector”. And I must be well calibrated because all my sensors light-up whenever I read one of your posts.

          • I know, the truth is now destroying everything that you have said up to now – don’t worry, I won’t hold it against you.


      • @Asclepius Galen…#ALL Media outlets slant the narrative to fit the agenda of the Medium’s #WHO’RE in control of their funding.
        At this juncture, of this Mayhem the virus 🦠 has become the lesser of two evils. The greater evil is the business of COVID-19, whereby the Coefficient of Variance(hence, the importance of the numbers game) and the ID/EGO of those controlling this Mayhem should be our main concern.
        Bear in mind, in business not only does its symbolism are important in how it conducts business, the ETYMOLOGY of the name sends a clear message.
        COVID-19 is a business entity fashioned from the template of the ROARING 20’s time period(1900 – 1950).
        Companies such as those which established the Federal Reserve Bank on Jekyll Island, off the coast of Georgia is still in control of the financial markets. This is the real and true business of COVID-19.

        • Well said Ras Smood, I have said all along if you follow the money trail you will find all the answers to the current pandemic.

          Any time a politician, medical or scientific expert is pushing for vaccination, the first thing I always do is to find out who their FINANCIAL backers are … and lo and behold, in 99.9% cases it’s big players like the pharmaceutical companies or the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundations – BOTH HIDING BEHIND THE TAG OF ‘DOING RESEARCH’.

          • @Brixtonian…Donald “Mr. Teflon” Trump gave us a nugget, when he was ridiculed for using the word “COVFEFE” on Twitter.
            I am no fan of the #twit” but information is power, and COVFEFE(again the same COV prefix) is an Act passed by the 115 US Congress in 2017/2018.
            It became part of the framework for the Cares Act passed in 2020 which created the stimulus packages for the American People.
            The return of the monies received from the US Treasury was returned, into the system, as Crypto Currency. In others words…
            A…create a diversion!
            B…shut down/lockdown the system.
            C…bleed/flush its old currency
            D…add new currency

            In the first ROARING 20’s, the wars helped to establish the fossil fuel industry which was what the US dollar was pegged to.
            Now, the US dollar is pegged to and backed by blockchain which is fast becoming the “new fuel” powering businesses through technology.

          • Good evening and thank you for taking the time to reply.
            ANGEL I have bias like all of us, however I believe that I am to some degree aware of those bias and as such do my best to mitigate against them when I review information. I would describe myself as center with slight right leaning bias rather than left in my political ideology thus my personal opinion on Covid -19 may surprise you. Mind you I am “blessed” with a significant amount of ignorance on the subject of Covid -19 ,notwithstanding the effort to educate myself on the subject as fast as I can, aided by peer reviewed ( not necessarily a 100% correct) information and evidence. This is as result of the fact that the information offered changes on a daily if not hourly bases ,and appears to be conflicting at times when it comes to covid-19 and it clinical consequences.
            With that said it appears that we have moved closer to the view that the study in question is a worse case example to use, if you are going to change the view point of a reasonable person who believes in solid evidence, not conjecture when taking a position. The ability to reasonably consider two opposing positions is an early sign of enlightenment, in my opinion.
            Brixtonian I have taken note of you question and it deserves a proper response allow me some time ( something I am severely short of at the moment) to respond with an answer based on the best evidence available to me . With that said let me share with you where I will be coming from. Vaccines do not prevent you from becoming infected with anything, however in most cases it gives you the ability to allow your immune system to modulate a response that increases a favorable outcome, when you become infected, in most cases preventing you from becoming seriously ill requiring significant medical intervention. Prevention of Covid -19 to some degree can be observed with proper mask wearing and observing social distance and proper personal hygiene and lifestyle recommendations. This is not only applicable to the current Covid- 19 situation. I will expand on this at the next occasion.

            Ras Smood, I simply do not have sufficient information on the matter you raise to provide you with a worthwhile response. I however believe that anything is possible yet not everything is plausible.
            To be continued.
            Best wishes,
            Asclepius Galen

          Finally a potential covid intervention ( prevention ? cure?) we can all agree on this information It actually may bring vaxed and anti vaxed a bit closer together, I consider it good news if it holds true and it looks that way. Just hope that all who want can buy it cheap and legal ( no big pharma or corporations).
          The media

          just Duck duck go or Google it.

          The study.

          By the way Ras Smooth, why did you hide this information from us? if anyone here had a hint that this was going on it should have been you I would think considering you name. stop wasting time do some testing and report back in sum: go and find a cure we can all agree on ( most of us).

  5. Where all these cases coming from?

    The double vaxed, multi boosted people they let in the country?

    The cruise ship that was allowed to dock by two ministers of govt knowing fully well that same cruise ship was prevented from docking at two other islands due to known COVID cases on board?

    Gaston Browne who didn’t get any vax but acted like he did?

    The minister who allowed his COVID ridden daughter to enter the country from the UK and allowed to walk around the public looking doctor?

    Can’t wait to hear Gaston Browne dead from COVID. In fact it would nice to hear every corrupt politician (all parities) and all corrupt officials dead from COVID.
