Why has it taken two years for most people, even supposedly smart people, even our supposed experts, to recognize what was always obvious from the start of this epidemic–this is a respiratory virus, it can’t be defeated and it will determine the timetable upon which it reaches endemicity. The bigger question is when will we accept endemicity and stop the destruction of our society. Here is an editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine, one of our most prominent (and worst due to wokeness) medical journals, calling for a universal CV vaccine but also saying the following: “These sobering facts suggest that SARS-CoV-2 is unlikely to be eliminated, let alone eradicated; it will probably continue to circulate indefinitely in periodic outbreaks and endemics.” (NEJM Editorial) Ya think? Accepting this as a condition of the epidemic from the start would have allowed us to avoid all the nonsense about “flattening the curve”, etc. It was never possible to significantly affect transmission levels and it still isn’t. After spending trillions of dollars and upending everyone’s lives we are where we were always going to be. And we still have a large segment of the population, perhaps a majority, that accept all the idiotic and futile suppression attempts.
This study, once more from Israel, tracked antibody trajectory following vax for 11 months in health care workers and looked at the role of prior infection. Younger and previously infected persons had higher initial levels. All subjects experienced a decline over a few months, including those with previous infection. Boosters restored the level of antibodies, but with unclear persistence. There is also a discussion about the optimal timing for booster receipt. (Medrxiv Paper)
For whatever reason, and it probably wasn’t because of mask wearing RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) disappeared for a while during the epidemic, then re-emerged in the typical off-season and is still causing a lot of serious illness in children. This article discussed the renewed wave of RSV. According to the authors’ modeling, reduced immunity build-up could lead to double the typical number of cases and hospitalizations. (JAMA Article)
This is another followup study on vaccine effectiveness from Qatar, which has a relatively young population. It found that effectiveness against infection declined to below 50% after seven months, but that protection against hospitalization or death remained very high, with little evidence of lessening. Only 35% of breakthrough cases were identified because of symptoms, the rest were identified through required testing or contact tracing. So roughly two-thirds of cases could just have been ignored. There was little effect of age and in this study, prior infection did not appear to be a factor in effectiveness. (Medrxiv Paper)
From the what did you expect department, this study from Austria finds that stringent lockdowns and isolation among the elderly substantially increase feelings of loneliness. (Medrxiv Paper)
Another study looking at rapid antigen tests and finding that they may be better at identifying who actually is infectious. (Medrxiv Paper)
Kind of an interesting study finding that the level of fungal diversity and prevalence where you live may play a role in susceptibility to serious CV-19 disease. I am sure anything that helps challenge and prime our immune system could be a factor. (Medrxiv Paper)

Outstanding post! Thank you for your continuing efforts to tell the truth.
As always, thanks for being a voice of sanity in an ocean of insanity. I’ve learned so much since I’ve followed you and am grateful for the time you take and the balanced approach and expertise you share.
Thank you for keeping up with the research, “such as it is” (yuk yuk!). Definitely helpful. And often revealing.
If one reads the names of the scoundrels and fraudster supporting the “universal jabs” one doesn’t need to think anymore!

All scum… pure scum!
thanks again for being the voice of sanity.
Following up on my comment regarding the similarity of the 3 waves of Covid and the 3 waves of the 1918 spanish flu. The 1918 Spanish flu had a relatively mild/minor 4th & 5th waves as immunity spread through the population (and as the mutated strains weakened as I recall). This has been fairly consistent with most other prior pandemics if I am not mistaken.
Based on historical trends, I would expect a relatively minor 4th wave in the late fall/ early winter of 2022.
This is not the only article portraying this ‘pandemic’ as a game of computer simulations with the PCR test (another computer generated reference) as the referee, all manipulated by the WHO/WEF and the labs and businesses they fund. It provides concepts that should make us all question everything regarding ‘cases’. If you return to the traditional (pre-Covid) definition of a medical ‘case’, there would be NO pandemic, NO panic, NO fear mongering numbers, to discuss.
With the exception of Colorado’s governor attempting to play God with this pen, providing legal cover for doctors who violate the hypotactic oath, he’s spot on. This Pandemic is OVER.
you are off the deep end, as usual
When this is read in the context of the ‘vaccinated’, or the clean/worthy people, vs. the un-vaccinated, there are many parallels with the process that need to be exposed in today’s situation. I see that in general, doctor’s minds have been captured in very similar ways. They have been corrupted by the guiding illusions of greater ‘societal good’ vs. the individual’s condition. This is currently baked into the structure of the medical system with financial leverage woven deeply into the fabric of their roles.
I wouldn’t wait until you need to see your GP before you get to know where his allegiances lie. I would also suggest that you use your health system’s communication portal so the questions and responses are evidenced. You can tell very quickly if he/she are playing CYA by their answers.
comparing today’s doctors to those who became Nazis is crazy and extreme, they may make mistakes and exercise bad judgment but that is a totally different order of magnitude than what happened in Nazi Germany, or Soviet Russia or in China even now.

Kevin, I have a question I don’t know where to find answers. Are university hospitals so dependent on government grants (NIH, DoD, etc) that they are too afraid to act independently at the risk of upsetting the princes on whom they depend for money?
