Back to the research and away from the ranting.
Two studies show that hospitalizations are exaggerated by including ones where the patients were not admitted for CV-19 and only incidentally tested “positive” for the virus. The studies relate to children but I believe are equally applicable to adults. In the first study, the authors reviewed 117 hospitalizations in a children’s hospital in California. While they were all included as CV-19 hospitalizations, the review found that 45% were not caused by CV-19. So even though there is a low rate of reported hospitalizations among children, in reality it is even lower. (AAP Paper) The second study also came from California and similarly found that a large number, in this case the majority of supposed CV-19 hospitalizations among children were not due to CV-19. (AAP Paper) Just another way governments are exaggerating the toll of epidemic and terrorizing people needlessly, in this case in regard to children.
This is an important paper looking at whether the vaccines appear to affect platelets, which are involved in clotting. The researchers compared platelet function in people with infections and people who were vaccinated, and checked the vaccinated group for a month. While platelet function is affected in the infected group, there was no indication of any change in vaccinated persons. (Medrxiv Paper)
Research increasingly supports the notion that studying adaptive immune responses after infection or immunization requires looking at more than just antibodies. In regard to variants, this paper found that even though antibodies may lessen, strong B memory cells tend to persist and aid in fending off even the variants. (Medrxiv Paper) In fact, looking for these memory cells is more indicative of prior infection and a durable response than looking for antibodies.
Scientists use cells from other primates to study CV-19. This paper finds that the most common of those cell lines is probably much more infectious that human airway cells, which leads to overestimates of the infectiousness of Cv-19. (Medrxiv Paper) Also suggests that PCR tests really are overstating actual infections and infectiousness.
Another paper on the effects of vaccination on previously infected persons. The paper first finds, as have most, that infected persons have a lasting antibody response, in this case for at least 12 months. Even in these infected persons, however, the vaccine boosted that response. The exception was in several obese individuals. (Medrxiv Paper)
This study examined the AstraZeneca vaccine, and its effects on uninfected persons in India versus the response of infected persons. In this research, prior infection appeared to be related to a stronger response to the vaccine. (Medrxiv Paper)
I don’t trust China at all and I think the lab origin theory for CV-19 could be right. On the other hand, there is ample evidence for the presence of a large number of similar strains in animal hosts. Re-examination of collected specimens indicates this. In Russia in 2020 scientists have gathered evidence of a virus similar to CV-19 in horseshoe bats. (Medrxiv Paper)
