The most important lesson to be drawn from the Corona crisis appears that it has become a great risk to be a retirement home resident. If one is assigned to such an institution, one invariably gives up basic human rights. At first it was “only” the restrictions on freedom of movement and contact with loved ones that the elderly had to endure, but now it is the Corona vaccination, which one can hardly avoid in these custodial institutions.
There have been increasing reports of deaths in old people’s homes following the mass vaccinations of residents. Some 23 cases were recently reported from Norway. Nursing home residents accounted for nearly half of the dead in Sweden at one point. In Germany, a series of deaths in a nursing home in the Miesbach district in Upper Bavaria has been noted.
As the Miesbach district office reported, 41 residents in a senior citizens facility had tested positive for the Coronavirus. As in Norway, 34 of these had previously received a vaccine from BioNTech/Pfizer. Seven of the vaccinated residents died, and among the non-vaccinated there was only one fatality. Before the vaccination campaign, there were only five corona fatalities in the old people’s homes in the Miesbach district from March to December.
“Due to the short time between vaccination and outbreak, it can be assumed that the vaccinated had already been infected at the time of vaccination,” the official statement read. In addition, the district office pointed out that “full vaccination protection” only occurs after the second vaccination.
Does the vaccine promote the onset of the disease? It is more obvious, however, that the vaccination in the presence of Corona viruses in the subject’s body promotes the outbreak and subsequent fatal course of Covid-19.
And before this suspicion is completely dispelled, it borders on gross negligence to continue to carry out mass vaccinations in old people’s homes. However, political interests stand in the way of such an investigation, so there will likely be many more victims before anything in this direction is done.
The Moderna and Pfizer trials have explicitly acknowledged that their untested gene therapy technology has no impact on viral infection or transmission whatsoever and merely conveys to the recipient the capacity to produce an S1 spike protein endogenously by the introduction of a synthetic mRNA sequence. It should be underscored that the term “vaccine” means a specially prepared antigen which, upon administration to a person, will result in immunity.
The German anti-vaccine journalist Boris Reitschuster, pointed out on his website that there has been no evidence that either the BioNTech vaccine or the Moderna helped people over 74 years of age.
Vaccination, according to politicians and the media, is currently the most important strategy in dealing with the Coronavirus. But there are three sober facts to be considered: Firstly, according to the German government itself, it is not yet known whether a vaccination protects against the transmission of the virus at all. Secondly, it does not protect against an illness itself, but against a severe infection. And thirdly, that these severe, life-threatening infections are very rare in younger to middle-aged people. However, this is not the case with the elderly and especially the very old, for whom SARS-CoV-2 can pose a fatal risk in many cases. The logical conclusion: especially the elderly must be vaccinated. And that is exactly what the vaccination recommendations are based on.
But in the 74-page “Epidemiological Bulletin 2/2021” of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) from January 14 on page 27, it states: “The age-stratified analysis also showed comparably high effectiveness estimates, which, however, with decreasing age groups or case numbers, in some cases showed wide confidence intervals or were no longer statistically significant. In the highest age group (≥ 75 years), therefore, a statement about the effectiveness of the vaccination is fraught with high uncertainty.”
This “high uncertainty” is mainly due to the fact that not even five percent of the 40 000 participants in the study were older than 75 years. Curious, when one considers that the vaccine is especially recommended for this group.
There remains great fear in Europe of genetically modified maize. In contrast, a vaccination strategy that introduces artificially generated genes into the organism, is poorly researched, and carries the risk of serious side effects, is somehow acceptable.
Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) has meanwhile suggested that the reintroduction of border controls to neighboring countries could become a reality. “If countries decide to go completely different ways, which I don’t see at the moment, but could eventually happen, then you have to be ready to the extreme and say: Then we have to reintroduce border controls,” she said on Tuesday evening after the Consultations with the prime ministers of the federal states.
Meanwhile, the AfD criticized the extensions and tightening of the Corona measures. The chairman of the parliamentary group, Alexander Gauland, announced: “Continuous school closings, arbitrarily imposed mask requirements and home office regulations that cannot be implemented in practice bring no improvement to the protection of the particularly endangered elderly and nursing home residents, which has been neglected for months.” Politicians accused the grand coalition of having also failed in the vaccination organization.
Co-parliamentary group leader Alice Weidel spoke of a “vicious circle of ever new extensions and tightening of the ineffective lockdown”. In this way school and university students, children and families, workers, middle classes and businesses were the main victims of a failed policy.
Christian Lindner, chairman of the FDP, was also skeptical. In a statement he said: “We will be in the pandemic for almost a year. The lockdown, intended as a breakwater, has been in place since November. Who actually thinks that it will be lifted on February 14?” A step-by-step plan and clear alternative concepts are finally needed.
The Greens co-chair Annalena Baerbock emphasized on the one hand the need for further measures. At the same time, she criticized the lack of solutions for the children in view of the extended school closings. It is not clear how the students who cannot study from home could be reached, she told the broadcaster n-tv. She called on Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) to allow Corona rapid tests for citizens.
Left party leader Katja Kipping praised the commitment to home office as a result of the conference between the federal government and the states. However, it should have been clearer. On the other hand, the continued school closings exacerbated social problems. In addition, the federal government has so far not been able to provide children from socially disadvantaged families with devices for distance learning.
The steps to combat the pandemic decided on Tuesday include, in addition to continuing the school closings and extending the lockdown until mid-February, a stricter mask requirement. Private gatherings are limited to your own household and one other, external person.
