Covid conspiracies
« on: December 03, 2021, 12:15:27 PM »
Covid conspiracy theories fuel unrest in Europe

As public backlash to reimposed Covid-19 restrictions in Austria and the Netherlands intensify, so too has the spread of misinformation.

With infection rates rising and government restrictions returning, misinformation and conspiracy theories are flourishing once again across Europe, fuelling protests and political backlash.

The driving fear among anti-vaxxers is generally focused on government abuse of power. New research carried out in Austria indicates that low trust in vaccines is strongly linked with low trust in authority overall.

But that mistrust is increasingly being co-opted by the far-right through an adoption of baseless theories that vaccines are deadly or part of a sinister global plot, which social media has exacerbated by playing to negativity biases around public health messages.

In the face of governments clamping down to curb the virus, thousands have taken to the streets to demonstrate against Covid restrictions in Austria, Netherlands, Italy, Croatia and Switzerland.

Last week, the World Health Organization described the challenge faced by Europe as “very serious,” with almost 4,200 deaths a day recorded compared to 2,100 a day back in September.

These morons rather die than trust doctors and scientists, listening to conspiracy theories that it's government abuse of power.

Fox News CEO refuses to comment on Tucker Carlson's anti-vaccine rhetoric

Business Insider: Fox News CEO refuses to comment on Tucker Carlson's anti-vaccine rhetoric: 'I am loyal first'

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott granted a rare interview to The Hollywood Reporter and refused to weigh in on her most-viewed host's anti-vaccine rhetoric.

Scott, who said she's vaccinated, touted Fox PSAs for the vaccine and personal testimony of several anchors who've shared their experience getting the jab.

Yet when it came to whether Carlson's rhetoric alarms her, she drew an iron curtain and presented a united front.

"I have a regular cadence of conversations with a wide variety of talent here, including our primetime talent," she told THR. "I will never discuss those conversations. That's not who I am. I am loyal first. I am loyal to everyone on the team, whether they are someone on the news side or the opinion side. To me, they are all people who work for Fox News Media, and I respect the privacy of those conversations."

Italian dentist presents fake arm for vaccine lol
« Reply #7 on: December 07, 2021, 09:50:48 AM »
MILAN -- A dentist in Italy faces possible criminal charges after trying to receive a coronavirus vaccine in a fake arm made of silicone.

A nurse in the northern city of Biella, Filippa Bua, said she could tell right away that something was off when a man presented the phony limb for a shot on Thursday.

“When I uncovered the arm, I felt skin that was cold and gummy, and the color was too light,’’ Bua told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

She said she initially thought the 57-year-old man was an amputee and had mistakenly offered the wrong arm. She lifted his shirt and saw a silicone arm.

“I understood immediately that the man was trying to avoid the vaccination by using a silicone prosthetic, into which he hoped that I would inject the drug, unaware, Bua said.

The nurse said the man acknowledged he did not want a vaccine but to obtain a “super” health pass, which from Monday will be required to enter restaurants, cinemas, theaters and other venues in Italy.

He had already been suspended from work because of his refusal to get vaccinated, which Italy requires for medical personnel.

The nurse said the man was courteous and left the vaccination center after the failed attempt.

“We stopped and reflected, and we understood that this wasn’t just a surreal situation, but a real attempt at fraud,’’ Bua said. She and others at the vaccination site turned paperwork over to superiors so they could report the case, which has been given to prosecutors.

While Italy’s vaccination rate is relatively high at 85% of the currently eligible population ages 12 and over, people in the the age range from 30 to 59 have proven the most resistant to vaccinations, with nearly 3.5 million still not having received their first doses.

Trump to Candace Owens: “People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine”

Axios: Trump to Candace Owens: “People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine”

Former President Trump pushed back against doubts about the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines during an interview with conservative media personality Candace Owens released Wednesday.

Donald Trump: I came up with three vaccines — all are very, very good. I came up with three of them in less than nine months. ....

Candace Owens: And yet more people have died under COVID this year, by the way, under Joe Biden than under you. And more people took the vaccine this year, so people are questioning how —

Trump: Oh, no. The vaccine worked. But some people aren't taking it. The ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don't take the vaccine.
But its still their choice, and if you take the vaccine, you're protected. Look the results of the vaccine are very good, and if you do get it, it's a very minor form. People aren't dying when they take the vaccine."

https://www.axios.com/trump-candace-owens-dying-vaccine-covid-92fd3eb3-f5ec-4167-8649-113903119de1.html

My comment: I think the debate is over if vaccines work or not.

Superspeader event among triple vaccinated, many have symptoms
« Reply #9 on: December 25, 2021, 09:56:41 AM »
At a private gathering of 33 Pfizer-triple-vaccinated health care workers in the Faroe Islands, 21 were infected with Omicron—a superspreading event among 3-dose-vaccinated people.

https://t.co/65bn9HoDYK

They did the right thing, got triple shot and tested negative beforehand yet still got infected. Fortunately no hospitalization.

Stay safe guys.

I want to emphasize that this observation has nothing to do with politics and does not benefit either side of the political aisle. In science, observations are made and adjustments are made followed by more observations and more adjustments. We should get the boosters. Then we wait for the updated vaccine formulations that are tailored to the Omicron variant (hopefully in February) and we get those without politics. And we wait for the next variant that gains traction and we continue the process for the next 10 to 15 to 20 years. Continuing the process does not mean continuing to play political ideologue and impeding the ethical and effective path to health and safety at the societal level.

The vast majority (>80%) of people getting admitted for COVID are NOT vaccinated. While the Omicron variant may cause more breakthrough infections, the current vaccine formulation still does a good job preventing serious disease (i.e. death and hospitalizations). Please help me, help you. Get your vaccine and/or booster. If you are in a crowded environment, wear a mask.

What? No, people are dying from the vaccine... the side effects are worse than Covid... and masks don't work. Just get Covid for that natural immunity, it's better than the vaccine and less side effects.

I did notice that when I was filling up gas at Costco (at Spectrum) last time that more people are masking up even at the pumps. The time before that, no masks.

Omicron media attention does have some benefits--more boosting and masks.
