Is The WHO & Gates Making The World Into Auschwitz? Collateral Damage Of Covid-19 Policy Is The Real Global Story

By Manuka Wijesinghe –

‘Get vaccinated without fear,’ the State Minister for Primary Health Services, Pandemics and Covid-19, Dr Sudarshani Fernandopulle urges the general public in Sri Lanka, where road accidents and elephant attacks significantly outnumber Covid-19 flu deaths. ‘Adverse effects have not been reported and all the reported cases are general discomfort which are common to any other vaccine’.

Several countries had suspended their Astra Zeneca inoculation campaigns, yet, Sudarshani Fernandopulle offers platitudes. Is she in a position to ameliorate vaccination fear? Does she know more than the vaccine manufacturers who do not now the long term adverse effects either for the race for Vaccines began only when the World Health Organization (WHO) announced an Emergency due to a ‘Pandemic’ caused by a Novel Corona Virus (it had 78 percent resemblance to SARS CoV-1 so, not novel), in 2020.

Dr. Sudarshani Fernandopulle

Sudarshani Fernandopulle is the face of Covid-19 in Sri Lanka. But, what does she know? What does anyone know? Since the proclamation of a pandemic and the subsequent availability of the vaccines it has been less than one year. Numerous vaccines are being injected, but neither their efficacy nor their dangers are known. The head of the German governmental agency and research institute for disease control and prevention (Robert Koch Institute), Lothar Weider said on Phoenix television in October 2020, ‘We all assume that the vaccines will be approved next year.  We don’t know yet exactly how they will work, how well they will work, what they will do, but I am quite optimistic that there will be vaccines.’

The fact is, no one knows the effectivity and long and short term impacts of the vaccine on human populations. As new mutations occur and strands of Covid -19 virus seem to appear magically, Pfizer has said that a third jab maybe needed to deal with the Brazilian variety. Pfizer also now suggests that Covid-19 shots would be needed annually, with big profits in years to come?!

The three trial phases of vaccine development, have been conducted concurrently thereby creating, perhaps correct results but with false paradigms. Yet, adverse reactions such as the most debilitating Bells’ Palsy has been noticed and even producers have cautioned those with hypersensitivities (in case of Anaphylactic shock), concurrent diseases and last but not the least; the immunocompromised.

Yet, Sudarshani Fernandopulle gives sound assurance. Does she have no moral compulsion? But she is not the only one. Dr Arjuna Marasinghe, the secretary of the Sri Lanka Association of Nephrology even advocates vaccinations for the immune suppressed. ‘’Patients suffering chronic kidney ailments are a high risk group (for Covid-19) and should receive vaccination.’ Are the kidney ailing not the most immune suppressed?

Is it ignorance, apathy, or is ‘Vaccination’ an article of their Medical Faith? As Dr Jayne L. M Donegan says in regard to her medical studies in the book, ‘Dissolving Illusions – Disease, Vaccination and Forgotten History’, ‘It (Vaccination) was received as an article of faith for me and my contemporaries that vaccination was the single most useful health intervention that had ever been introduced. I was taught that vaccines were the reason children and adults stopped dying for disease for which there are vaccines. We were told that other diseases, which had no vaccination at the time, diminished both by incidence and mortality due to better social conditions. You would think, a medical student, moderately intelligent would have asked ‘if deaths decrease due to improved social conditions, might the one for which there are vaccines also decrease due to the same reasons? But we didn’t. The medical curriculum is so overloaded with information that you just have to learn what you hear.’

As early as 1866 the world’s first Anti-Vaccination league was founded in Britain for the British Parliament had concealed and not make public the many cases of death and injury caused by Vaccines. The league’s purpose was to ‘TO OVERTHROW THIS HUGE PIECE OF PHYSIOLOGICAL ABSURDITY AND MEDICAL TYRRANY.’ As Richard Gibbs of the Free Hospital stated, ‘We have hundreds of cases here, from being poisoned with vaccinations, I deem INCURABLE.’ The league, despite great duress, continued its work and in 1900 the Labour Party General election Manifesto contained a commitment to ‘NO Compulsory Vaccination.’ They had won. But, for how long?

Today, in 2021, the long and hard battle against mandatory vaccination has been ignored and the public has let itself be duped. Our freedom has been taken by institutions of authority and their “experts’ and ‘specialists”, using the media to sell a so-called ‘killer virus’. Only by forfeiting our health for vaccination trials would our liberties be returned? Have we, rational human become laboratory mice?

In American Capitalism, dependent on the advertising industry, killer virus hypes have not been new. Even before the 2008 Swine Flu hype, in 1976, the US drug companies master minded a futuristic Swine Flu Epidemic. Their President (Ford) and pseudo scientists marketed doomsday scenario comparing Swine Flu to Spanish Flu which killed thousands in 1918 and 1919.

Flu viruses, no matter the fanciness of its name are easily manageable. A great many died in 1918/19 for it was immediately after the First World War and the population’s immune system was compromised through years of malnutrition, trench wars and last but not the least, the best of western industrial prowess; Chemical Warfare. Mustard gas and Chlorine had blistered and scarred lungs and throats depressing the innate immune system and those who died of Spanish Flu were destined to die largely due to the vagaries of war. But, lacking even an iota of ethics, the American pharmaceutical companies, with the cooperation of public health officers and politicians, in 1976, compared the 1918 Spanish Flu to a rare and negligible Swine Flu and marketed the vaccination as its only redemption.

That redemption caused an epidemic in paralysis and vaccine manufactures were hounded with damage payment claims. But, in 1986, the American President Ronald Reagan signed a Bill exempting vaccine producers from liability. In other words, the vaccine manufacturer was no longer responsible for damages. The road was open for avarice and profit. It was in this industry that Bill Gates invested most of his ill begotten monies after being tried for antitrust by the US Justice Department for Microsoft’s bribes to major corporations in the unfair procurement of monopoly. In the early nineteen nineties, Bill Gates was America’s most despised man. In 2001, stepping down from Microsoft after settling with the UN Justice department he used his monies to reimaged himself as a philanthropist (as Rockefeller did proceeding his own Antitrust case with Standard Oil) and used his 2000 founded Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to boost his image. Thereby he pledged to save the lives of poor children in Asia and Africa with vaccination. Vaccination had no liability and the poor had no voice.

Which institution could be corrupted to fulfil the avarice and philanthropic image of American Billionaires?

‘’Health is the Only Immunity’’

Despite the WHO-sponsored media narrative of imminent apocalypse, the Corona Virus is not lethal. It is a simple Flu causing Virus, first discovered in 1931, in animals and has always co-habited along with the Influenza virus in humans. When it got its name in 1964 (Corona) the first choice of name had been, ‘Influenza like Virus’. But, the lab technician, impressed by the virus’ halo, persuaded the virologist to name it Corona. But, the Corona Virus was not subjected to further study for in comparison to Influenza it was not marketable and not worth research funding.

When North American minks started dying of a Corona virus and the lucrative Mink industry was in dire straits, Corona vaccination research was begun. Since the mink’s closest relative is the ferret, it was used as the guinea pig. The two shot inoculation had no adverse reaction and the ferrets were released to their protected wilderness. But, when the virus mutated into a new strain, the vaccinated ferrets died.

Scientists realized that the Corona Virus was a maverick.  And so, the search for a vaccination for the Corona virus was abandoned. That is, until the Gates foundation began to invest in vaccination research in 2000. Among the many vaccinations was the Corona virus vaccine research too. A virus available in plenty, in all forms of life, easily accessible and highly virulent (though not lethal). And according to Bill Gates’ own words, ‘vaccination research was my best investment.’

‘We have a simple message for all countries, test test test’ (Tedros Adhanom, Director General WHO)

The current WHO induced global ‘pandemic’ scenario is not science, it is faith. The belief in the validity of the PCR test is so strong that it tolerates virtually no contradiction. As Walter Lippman the two time Pulitzer Prize winner said, ‘where all think alike, no one thinks very much.’

Death has not risen, the majority is not ill, yet, culture has been suspended, theatres are closed, music is silenced, our freedom robbed and we are in a state of perpetual pandemic.

The Corona virus is harmless to the many and the body’s response to it speedy. Often, it does not even stimulate the immune system but vigilant killer cells rid the human body of the virus. The lethality of Covid-19 for humans is not worth the money spent for its research, unless a fear is artificially created.

Is this a Pandemic?

It is not. But, in 2019, when the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunisation (GAVI), Gates and other interest groups met with their instruments of execution, (WHO, UNICEF) in Geneva, they had realized that their vaccination targets had not been met for 2019 and unlikely to be met in 2020. Over the years people were developing a natural antipathy to vaccines and many young mothers refusing to vaccinate kids due to a rise in chronic pathologies indicating vaccination damage.

Even in in the early 19th century, Clemens Maria Franz von Boenninghausen, a physician and a pioneer in Homeopathy, brought to the attention of the medical council of Prussia of the development of chronic diseases through vaccination. He said ‘vaccination is causing the disquieting spread of scrofulous disease’. All the physicians present at the council AGREED with Dr Boenninghausen and promised to give special attention to the matter next year.

They may have then, but two hundred years later, not even the World Health Organization (WHO) gives attention to such observation, instead cooperates in a plan to meet the vaccination NGOs fiscal targets. Perhaps it was the 1976 script they used, it would have been easy and it was easily available **.

Why did they not do so earlier?

They had tried, but failed with both SARS and SWINE FLU, and not to mention Ebola. Why had it not succeeded then and why is it succeeding now? Perhaps the answer is in the person of Tedros Adhanom, the current Director General of the WHO, and the corporatization and privatization of public goods and health care, resulting in a global health system and institutional structure that is corrupt and flawed.

Tedros Adhanom, during his tenure as Ethiopia’s Health Minster had handed over Ethiopia’s Public Health to western NGO’s such as the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and Buffet Foundation. They reaped profits in a poor African nation and laundered Tedros’ crimes against humanity and nominated him as the Director General of the WHO while the Ethiopian diaspora stood before the United Nations in loud protest. Thus, a man who should have been tried for Genocide assumed the post of the Director General of the WHO.

By the time Tedros assumed leadership, the WHO  had changed the meaning of the world ‘Pandemic’ with interest groups, behind closed doors. Having changed it, they were waiting for the right man on the saddle to execute the plans of The Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunization (GAVI), the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Moreover, the international system of which the WHO, UNICEF and other UN organizations are a part is at a historical inflection point: As Asia continues its economic ascent, two centuries of Western domination of the world, first under Pax Britannica and then under Pax Americana, is ending. The West is losing not only its material dominance but also its ideological sway, and is increasingly propped up by the Covid-19 panicdemic to legitimize Euro-American global surveillance, big data gathering and control of populations in the called global ‘knowledge economy“, precisely the violations that it accuses China of,  given the inability of the US to come to terms with a multi-polar world.

The Covid-19 panicdemic and pacification policy in the name of bio-security, is essentially a First World problem (both virus and narrative), despite recent attempts to whip up Covid-19 panic in the Global South, particularly, in India and Thailand. Covid-19 policy is both a symptom and product of the flailing Euro-American empire in its death throes despite the presence of 800 US military bases all over the world; an imperial project that has run out of steam but still refuses to go quietly into the night – hence the global turbulence, hybrid cyber warfare, and hyper-militarization at this time—all under the Covid-19 mask and Human Rights spin.

Tedros Adhanom was the Man of that Hour.

Until this crisis, even according to the WHO definition, ‘Pandemic’ referred to mortality rates across continents. But, in this Covid-19 drama ‘Pandemic’ is no longer measured by death rates and comparative analysis. Rather ‘pandemic’ is associated with a PCR test based on to a numerical cycle threshold recommended by the WHO and case fatality rate (CFR), rather than the tried and tested infection fatality rate (IFR).

However, the PCR test is NOT indicative of disease. It is a technique to replicate DNA sequences. The false positives of the non-diagnostic PCR were used to determine infection when it only alluded to fragments of genetic particles.

Thus, through the instrument of a false PCR tests and flawed epidemiological models, the western world, like the race to the moon, now raced for the Covid-19 vaccine. Suddenly it was not the extinction of the profitable mink that was at stake, it was the extinction of the unprofitable human. The old and the frail; locked in nursing homes, suddenly became profitable. They were given the role which ferrets had. Like Pandemic had been given a new definition, perhaps Euthanasia had been given a name change too.

This was Neoliberalismus in all its splendour.

Realizing how easy it was to manipulate the masses, how easy it was to substitute Democracy with Totalitarianism, using first world media houses (CNN, BBC, AL Jazeera, etc.), and paid for ‘expert’ narratives. to hype up a Covid 19 fear psychosis the endeavour for vaccination did not stop with the old and the frail, but was extended to the young and the healthy. European Democracies suspended their libertarian constitution, locked down culture and life. When it would eventually open, would it only be for the unfree? The rest, would they be refused entry into public, resembling the race that had once been forced to wear the Star of David?

Ironically, the Covid-19  ‘race’ has been won by Israel – America’s staunchest friend in the Middle East!

These questions were asked, but not by the media. The media had taken the role of church. ‘Hark and hear the Angels sing, glory be to the new born JAB!’ Germany’s Angel Merkel, with the proclamation of Tedros’ Pandemic, joined forces with corporate interest to proclaim; ‘the Pandemic ends when Vaccination is available and we shall everything necessary to make it possible.’ The German leadership made it possible by giving billions of public money to private vaccination industries.

Thus, public money was wasted for a common Flu.

It was all too similar to the bail out of private banks in 2008.

Thus, many surfed on the highest wave and a myriad countries competed in the vaccination race. Only the Russian vaccine, ‘Sputnik’, was descriptive of haste in which they had been conjured. Perhaps the Americans should have called theirs ‘Apollo’ and the Germans, ‘Zeppelin’, adding to the science-fiction reality in which we found ourselves. Yet, despite the incredibility of it all, the WHO gave its first approval to Pfizers’s untested mRNA vaccine, and Astra Zeneca, for these were Bill Gate’s direct investments and his sister company COVAX (The global pooled procurement mechanism for COVID 19 Vaccinations) was ready and waiting to carry Astra Zeneca across the seas to unsuspecting fear-struck South Asians.

This was not a bid to save lives, it was Philanthrocapitalism and Gates’ corporate empire building.

Against this evidential insanity and fake science, a group of eminent and ethical scientists and doctors, headed by Sunethra Gupta, the Oxford Epidemiologist, together with more than 1000 medical personnel, in March 2020, signed a declaration called the Great Barrington Declaration  ‘As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.’

These scientists who has signed the Great Barrington Declaration were the cream of the medical crop. But, their evidence based science was ignored by the WHO and national media gave them no coverage. In a Democratic world, news had become an orthodoxy. ***

Keeping measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.’ (The Great Barrington Declaration)

Western Europe were welfare states. They had safety nets, but who would care for the poor vendor or the Bajaj driver in India, South Africa and in Lanka? Sunethra Gupta’s question was ethically valid. It was the kind of question a public health officer ought to ask. It was the kind of question the WHO ought to ask. The Great Barrington Declaration went further, ‘Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher for the old and the infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including Influenza.’

Despite the accuracy of their evidence based medicines, schools were shut, small businesses closed and the British government went along with the Apocalyptic report (which has long proved to be erroneous) of Neil Ferguson of Imperial College who claimed that half a million Brits and two million Americans would die unless complete lockdown was not implemented until a vaccination was invented. Niall Fergusson was not a doctor, he was a mathematical biologist and worked intimately with the WHO. He had been responsible for the wrong prediction of both the 2009 Swine Flu, 2012 SARS and even Ebola. I recollect the ‘Economist’ of 2012, calling the SARS hype ‘The Mad Scientist Syndrome’. Neil Ferguson was that scientist.

Ignoring the evidence and the verity of the Great Barrington Declaration, governments used draconian methods to deal with Democratic subjects. Had Western Europe ceased to be Democracies? Neil Ferguson recommended complete lockdowns until a vaccine was invented. But, a vaccine takes at least 10 years for development.

But, with a False Pandemic creating a State of Emergency, the rules of the game could be changed, cost what it may to man.

And so the vaccine race was begun.

The WHO had sold its soul to the devil of GAVI and Gates. But, the WHO was not a moral organization, it was a secular one and not accountable to us; the people. But doctors, those like Sudarshani Fernandopulle and Arjuna Marasinghe, were they not accountable to us? Should they not know that vaccine caused pathology is incurable? Should they not know that the kidney diseased was the most immune compressed?

What do doctors really know?

I was pondering the question when I met a friend who, despite my abject warnings against vaccination, on a recommendation of a common specialist doctor friend, said to me, ‘I took the vaccination.’

Vaccinations had just reached the country and Colombo’s privileged had already begun to brave the blazing sun, stand in rare queues to get their jabs. Before I could even pose my next question, my friend became defensive. ‘We took it on the advice of my doctor friend…..’

‘Doctors know only to inject, they know nothing of vaccines,’ I said. Of course there are a rare critical few who think outside the box and on occasion may challenge the orthodoxy of medical trade unions such as the GMOA. Sri Lanka’ doctors and Trade Unions strictly enforced Covid-19 ‘professional orthodoxy’ which borders on a form of Fascism.

But my old and dear friend had many doctor friends who had said the same. I said no more. But my friend had the urge to explain himself. ‘You know, we took it only so we can go abroad.’

Presently, he could go nowhere. ‘What was the hurry?’ I asked him. ‘There is no place you can fly right now. Secondly by the time you can fly, one will know more about the dangers of vaccines,’ and since I am an optimist I even said, ‘I don’t think they can pull it through, the WHO. I think it is a matter of time when rationality returns.’

Optimism was my nature, but my friend’s answer was a comedy of errors.  ‘I took it now for the doctor friend said to take the Astra Zeneca for it is the best and who knows, later we may get only the Chinese one or the Russian Sputnik. She (the doctor friend) said, they are not good like the English one.’

That answer epitomises enslavement – the Colonial mentality – and dependence on foreign fake aid and experts in South Asia. Despite all their evident shortcomings revealed in real or imagined, soaring Covid-19 death rates in the so called technologically advanced Western world and endless lockdowns, we still believed in the superiority of the white man and his burden. Did my friend’s doctor friend truly think that without western synthetic commercial medicines, we natives would be extinct? Who dropped the Atom bomb? Who gassed with Zyklon B? Who burned with Napalm? Who made Glyphosate? Who looted India?

It was not China or Russia it was the so called Human rights loving superior west led by the United States with its 800 military bases all over the world. What do doctors truly know?

To be continued ….

    they are not good like the English one

    indeed, That comes from the mouth of all the slaves. look at the crowd here, I am ashamed to say that is the reality of the Sri Lankan medical profession.

    They will not approve the Chinese vaccine for the lack of phase 4 data and other novel questions that can ask and are waiting for the British (indian) one or Pfizer or Biotech . also all this data is apples and oranges when the vaccine is tested against different populations exposed to different variants

    At the current rate, I double Srilanka will get vaccinated until 2050. and that is not for the lack of leadership it is because the Dr who tool the Hippocratic oath are actually hypocrites.

    We in the US who are fully vaccinated still cannot travel because of the same hypocrites.

      While I agree with the last part of the author’s assertions. I do not subscribe to her conspiracy theories.

      but at the same time I am baffled by all the mutant variants that seem to be taking over . my fear is that given how long it takes to vaccinate the world but the time most are vaccinated this will mutate beyond that vaccine’s reach.

      I have to say though this is a stage time to live in.

        If you are under 65, you will pass unscathed unless you have some serious underlying morbidity.
        It is the older population (over 75) that has to be treated with care.
        I wonder why some major vaccines are stopped in the West but encouraged here. (Is it a conspiracy?)

          prof I’m not too sure about the age thing. quite a few younger people have died. I think it is almost some luck of the draw. (until more is known)

          As for the Astra Zenica and J&J suspensions, I think it is more of a cautious approach. I am told the numbers are like 66 in a million.

          I honestly don’t know if there is any conspiracy but my brother who is a medical professional in SL had already got the first shot and says he does not know when the second will be available. I am thinking it will not be available for a while given the Indian situation, but he also said the Sinopharm vaccine was the most expensive (at 60$) but I think the 600k doses were given free. I think it is foolish to not use it. maybe give it to the ones who want it. but of course in Sri Lanka nothing can be done without the red tape.

          It is just that real poor countries like SRILANKA have no choice. Only self proclaimations make them so called middle upper class nation. Truly saying, srilanka is another state to fall that deep. If Hindians did not grant them 5 lacks of vaccines, they nation had no other choice but to rely on Paniya the like drinks being promoted by pro-myths current rulers.
          .
          Astrazeneca is now banned for those who are 60 in Germany, while the same age group was injected with the vaccine like 3 months ago, while over 65 were not allowed to get treated.
          :
          Today, with more clinical data coming in, older age groups are treated with Astrazeneca while under 60 are not treated with Astrazeneca. UK is said to have reached their HERD IMMUNITY start levels, but the situation stays as usual as some experts report it.

    Good one Manuka, thanks. Far more people have died of car accidents this year – so they should ban people driving cars and stop building highways!

    Time to start looking at the Covid-19 data and policy debacle in Sri Lanka and its collateral damage on the economy, environment, society, health and well being of people, and question the doctor’s mafia and GMOA that is controlled by big Pharma and the WHO.
    There has been total Institutional Capture of the Sri Lanka health system by external actors – WHO and big Pharma – via the Covid-19 narrative and big data project.
    More people are poor and malnourished and vulnerable today, the economy is is debt and shambles. there is a covid-19 PLASTIC Pandemic.
    Debt trapped Sri Lanka’s public health care system cannot dress wounds free buts spend 80 LKR million a day on useless PCR tests – what a farce!

      Now the GMOA and Epidemiology Spin Doctors at the MOH are talking up a fake third wave of Covid-19 to — stop people protesting tomorrow at the US and Saudi Embassies in Colombo which were behind the staging of the Easter Sunday ISIS claimed suicide carnage 2 years ago!
      There has been no increase in deaths but they want more PCR tests – a massive waster of funds when the Hospitals need drugs rather than PCR tests!
      When Pompeo visited Sri Lanka they talked up the 2nd wave of Covid-19 to stop protests against MCC and Alina Nitwitz!

    It would have helped if CT added a narrative on author. I did a Google search to see whether she is in any way related to Princeton Anthropologist, because of similarities in writing . She is apparently a practitioner of alternative medicine now residing in Germany. She is also a fiction writer who likes to combine alternative medicine and fiction in her writings. Some of the books written by her are “Theravada Man” and “Sinhala Only”which are included in literature curriculum of public universities in Lanka. For now I will avoid commenting on this article , which is to be continued.

      Chiv,
      Don’t you think the CT moderators would do well to first read the articles that they publish, especially from the Princeton anthropologist and this current expert on virology?
      Just so that CT is not forced into the ranks of free energy theorists and alien conspiracy experts. Really, if we need such stuff, there is plenty on YouTube.

        This lady is far better informed than several CT contributors.
        I think that she spoiled her narrative a little by the emotional declarations at the end.
        *
        Much of the argument is based on medical opinion which is suppressed on the Internet search engines.
        Why should people run scared of reasoned argument.
        *
        There is no expert virologist writing to CT.
        What right has one to pass judgment on another.
        If a statement is unfounded or unscientific, let us expose it by reasoned argument.
        *
        We tolerate all manner of falsehoods here, while fair comment is ridiculed with name calling and insults.
        *
        It will help if the writer give an itemised summary of the arguments. Then one may tear each down as one can using science, facts and reason.

          S.J,
          This passage, and the references to Bill Gates, are a dead giveaway about the author’s inclinations:
          “Even in in the early 19th century, Clemens Maria Franz von Boenninghausen, a physician and a pioneer in Homeopathy, brought to the attention of the medical council of Prussia of the development of chronic diseases through vaccination. He said ‘vaccination is causing the disquieting spread of scrofulous disease’.”
          Now, in this 21st century, we know quite well that most “scrofulous diseases” have been eradicated. It is easy , like the author, to be wise in hindsight and claim that better sanitation was the factor. The Bill Gates theory has been well and truly debunked. It is true that, at least in this region, Covid mortality is less than expected, a little more than dengue in fact. Perhaps mass vaccination is not even necessary. The problem is that some individuals hijack the issue using flimsy conspiracy theories to promote their imaginative world-views. “Emotional declarations” is an understatement.
          A final point. If something has been suppressed on the internet, how do we know of that? As far as I know, there is very little being suppressed on the Net, and there are ways of accessing even that!

            S.J,
            It seems there are two authors named Manuka Wijesinghe, male and female. Neither shows any inclinations to conspiracy theories. But one was educated at Ladies College, which is also the Alma mater of the well-known Princeton anthropologist. I wonder if PA is using this name as another front? It certainly is PA’s writing style. The plot thickens!

            Biases apart, let us study the validity of the arguments put forward.
            I read several points of view and draw my conclusions, using plain logical reasoning. I can be wrong, but am open to correction.
            *
            Covid mortality may fall well below that for dengue if the effects of underlying morbidities are duly assessed. The worst that Covid may have done could have been shortening life by a few months.
            There is deliberate exaggeration of death count. PCR tests are now less trusted than at the beginning. But I will not say 90% error as some would argue. Even at 50% error, they serve a purpose in the absence of nothing else available. The cost is a factor to worry about.
            *
            There was statement by someone I was looking for. I searched with the author’s name: all I found was a pile of abuse and character assassination.
            I finally located an article that contained the item, with a note that it had been taken off from various public domains.
            Tracking anything against the official line is getting harder by the day.
            It did, does and will happen here, but as clumsily as during the war. The Big Boys are smarter and will do it in the name of freedom of expression.

              “Covid mortality may fall well below that for dengue if the effects of underlying morbidities are duly assessed. “
              The problem with Covid is the speed of propagation, which clogs up scarce infrastructure. Hospitals are overflowing in India , at 1500 deaths a day , mostly in overcrowded big cities. It could be the same here. Many of our deaths so far are from urban areas. Vaccination ,even with a faulty vaccine, is preferable to doing nothing. The author’s line seems to be that any sort of vaccination kills more people than the disease itself. Such Luddite propositions from a non-medical person are highly irresponsible.

    The subject needs informed discussion.
    The article raises serious questions that deserve be answered seriously.
    It will help if the writer will provide an itemised summary of key questions for each to be addressed properly without personalising issues and silly name calling.
    *
    There are also other questions that bothered me:
    * If COVID-19 kills only the over 70s with other underlying conditions and does not cause serious symptoms in others, can it be called a deadly disease?
    * COVID-19 certainly aggravates some serious health issues. Are many deaths partly due to poor medical attention?
    * How is it that certain countries Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela (the last two with severely affected neighbours) in a region with a bad record of infection and death have very low death rates than much better off countries in the region?
    * Why has there been so much foul mouthing and blacking out of critics of the haste to come up with a vaccine without the usual series of tests?

      I have been following this covid saga since early 2000.
      Across the world several brave people with their smartphones went into hospitals and filmed them mostly empty inside. This was after the media told us the same hospitals were overflowing with covid patients.
      One guy confronted a doctor from a particular american hospital who had appeared on the news. He demanded to know while recording her why she lied and she simply shouted for security to remove him.
      In the UK they openly showed hospital staff doing dance routines inside the hospitals. We saw empty rooms. And these same staff claimed they were totally worn out and close to collapsing due to all the covid patients they supposedly had flooding their hospitals.

      Bill gates does not come from a medical profession. He comes from a background in computers.
      Bill gates is well known for complaining in the past that the world is overpopulated.
      His charity was accused some years ago of putting sterilization drugs inside various vaccines that were injected into locals in africa and asia.
      And now he is rolling out these covid vaccinations.
      Simple maths will tell you what the real agenda is here
      Vaccines are supposed to undergo many years of clinical trials before being issued to the public.This one has been made available in just a year.

      If you live in a country thats a member of the UN and geneva conventions and has signed international human rights agreeements. They cannot force you to wear face masks, take pcr tests or the so called vaccine.
      Forcing medical experiments on unwilling people was actually made illegal at the end of ww2, as the nazis had been doing it.
      You simply state you have a medical exemption from all of it. You dont have to explain what it is or even show a doctors note. As it is confidential.
      Even if your country is not a member, you should still stand up and say no!
      Even if the vaccine was harmless, it is downright criminal to black mail the population into taking it. You cant dangle human rights in front of a person like a carrot asking them to dance to your tune if they want it back.

        Kamala harris getting ‘vaccinated’ on camera was proven a hoax.
        Some guys re-uploaded that video in slow motion and zoomed in.
        And you can clearly see that the needle was still inside its plastic cover
        and folded when the doctor/medical assistant pulled the syringe back.
        That video has been shadow banned on youtube but you may still be able
        to find them if you change the search filters.

          Even the videos which actually show politicians getting jabbed with the needle visibly going into the skin (like the australian pm), have syringes filled with something else and not the covid vaccine.

    Humble your comment is wrong and dangerous. Some time ago an African Minister of Health denounce HIV as a fake virus. He claimed that ginger, garlic and onions would cure any illness that appeared to be like HIV. Following his advice tens of thousands of people died of AIDS. Don’t be a Covidiot, vaccination is the only hope we have.

    What a load of crap, so much so, I gave up reading halfway. SL has many conspiracy theories, from CIA & Western funded NGOs trying to f**k SL over & now a pandemic denial. Bill Gates is not the only billionaire to capitalise on innovation but, unlike others, at least, he has donated most of his wealth to improve the mortality rate in third world countries. The UK govt, has funded Oxford/Astra Zeneca, the EU funded Pfizer & the US funded the Moderna vaccine, with even Dolly Parton chipping in with $1m. These pharma companies have pledged to supply the vaccine at no profit & many poor countries have received free donations as well. Apparently, the virus mutates constantly & the pharma companies need to be on top to meet the requirements. It is a fact that some medications may have side effects but the benefits outweigh the harm & have to be approved by regulators. I have no medical knowledge, therefore, happy to follow the advise of the health services of a responsible govt.

    So what is the writer suggesting? Wait for herd immunity to take over? Was the initial 5 week continuous curfew in SL unnecessary or do we need another? Seek indigenous unproven remedies with divine blessings?

        This was conveyed in the British media by way of discussions with govt. health officials & the PM at the beginning of the pandemic when UK & EU countries announced funding for research as it was a global issue. No country is safe if there are infections else where, therefore, the pandemic had to controlled fast globally & govt. funding was available based on the ‘no profit’ understanding as a vaccine was an immediate priority internationally. The UK govt. even took the responsibility of possible legal action in the event of side effects in its haste to roll out the vaccine after the initial trials were considered satisfactory. The EU was more cautious & demand more clinical trials & waited until adequate stocks were available for equal distribution among other countries, including poorer countries which could not afford to buy the vaccine . UK was criticised for its slow handling of the pandemic & was one of the badly affected countries but took a calculated risk as one of the first countries to offer mass vaccinations. The gradual reduction of the infection rate & deaths is most likely the result after 39m vaccinations to date & over 10m receiving the second vaccination as well.

        They are only providing 10 %(?) per country free. Big pharma is not losing out . they will create a 10% elite which all the others will aspire to and buy their vaccine.

        In the US the vaccine is provided free even if we have insurance , but given the govt dumped billions I think it is not really free.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT
    Highlights of paper “Population-level COVID-19 mortality risk for non-elderly individuals overall and for non-elderly individuals without underlying diseases in pandemic epicenters”
    by
    Ioannidis, Axfors and Contopoulos-Ioannidis:
    • People <65 years old have 16–100 fold lower risk of COVID-19 deaths than older people.
    • Age risk gradients are less steep in India and Mexico.
    • Absolute risks of COVID-19 in the population are low for people <65 years old.
    • COVID-19 deaths occur sparsely in people <65 without underlying conditions.
    *
    It will be helpful if the observations above will be discussed intelligently and honestly.

    The benefits outweigh the risks. If you get Covid19 you may die or be harmed long term. The vaccines have proven to be effective in most cases. A small percentage of the millions vaccinated have had adverse effects, a few people may have even died. There are keyboard warriors who pick on a trending subject in order to grab the spotlight.

      The risk of death for those under 65 is negligible, unless one has other serious conditions.
      Even among the over 80s who died most of the dead had more than two other serious problems.

      There are keyboard warriors for all battles.
      The opinions cited by the writer and many that I read are from reputed medical professionals.

        SJ, uTube and Google gossip can hardly be called evidence from reputed medical professionals. It may be you have not heard of any of these: NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE ,THE LANCET. JOURNAL OF AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, THE BMJ. ANNALS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE. Have a read.

          These are not YouTube or Google gossip. (BTW, Google as search engine is no gossip.)
          I ignore gossip, and even Wikipedia I take with a pinch of salt.
          I have seen in the process of my searches that there is much suppressed medical opinion. If you are interested I can give you many examples.
          *
          All that aside, let us use simple reasoning.
          If a viral infection does not lead to death of healthy under 65s, if deaths are predominantly among over 70s with over two serious health issues, will you call it a deadly pandemic?
          If by itself it causes a tiny fraction of the physical agony of Chikungunya, is it life threatening?
          *
          Compare the patterns region by region: In South America Venezuela has the lowest infection and mortality rates.
          In Central America Nicaragua fares far far better than all others.
          In the Caribbean its is Cuba with a great performance of disease control followed by Haiti.
          Is not there something to think about?
          *
          Take Europe: Sweden and Belarus with absolutely no controls fared far better than UK and France and many others. Sweden was bullied by the EU and various pressure groups, but it stood its ground.
          *
          I am not anti-vaccine per se.

    and annual revaccine due to virus mutaion has something to do and confirmation is waited and clinical trial is condinting Does any one know more than the vaccine manufacturers the game is changing due to new findings the founded theary is not life time answer.

    Manuka,
    Thanks for your thoughtful article. Having lived in fear of the Corona virus for more than a year, I agree that the fear was overdone. I think with certain routine precautions, we could lead normal lives. So far there is no rush or compulsion for jabs in Jaffna. My reluctance to take one owes to what I learn is the great deal of animal testing and vivisection that has gone into its research, which I am utterly against.

    But the pressure is unstoppable. Corona is the leading subject in Zoom calls with batchmates and classmates who have taken the jab or are waiting in the queue in Britain, Canada or Australia, boasting about how well their government has done.

    Since you are critical about vaccination, you should make it clear when it may be beneficial and when, not. After all we, as school children in the 1950s, were vaccinated against Smallpox and Polio and hardly anyone doubted that it was beneficial.

      Yours is a welcome intervention.
      To say that ‘the fear was overdone’ is an understatement. Most people are unaware that the virus is no big killer. The media, both print and electronic, are not encouraging open debate.
      I am not anti-vaccine, but have much concern about the way they hastily set about developing and enforcing the vaccine.
      Sadly, Big Pharma has effectively hijacked the heath services. It is an uphill task to reverse the trend.

      The benefits outweigh risks. We wouldn’t have survived Smallpox and Polio if not for vaccinations. As a child, this writer survived a rabid dog bite because of 21 painful vaccinations. The Covid19 vaccinations – mere pinpricks – have their risks. But the over 60s avoiding vaccination means they are exposed to a painful death when body fluids engulf bronchi. They will drown in their own fluids and die a prolonged, agonized death. Exposing ourselves to Covid19 is also a selfish act. Once we get it, we expose close relatives and others around to the infection, including medical and secondary staff. We put the larger population at risk. Look at what’s happening across the Palk Straits.

    OC, these kind of authors exist only because of people like Prof Know It All . See how his childish argument with others who think otherwise. After million death he stupidly makes a statement to claim “it kills ONLY people who are above 70 years old that too with other underlying conditions”. To make things worse he demands Virologist to tell him he is absolutely wrong. As long such supposedly educated people making retarded comments and provide false information, these authors have a field day.

    Dr.SJ, how sad. Today the eldest son of Communist party (Marxist) India ,chief Sitaram Yechury’s son died of Covid complications. He is just 35 years old and was recovering fairly well in a hospital and seems to have died of acute complications. SJ, though he does not meet your criteria for mortality, you can call some local comrades of yours to find whether this young man had any underlying medical issues.

    Well Gentlemen given what is happening in India do you still think that Covid is a hoax, possibly by Big Pharma? Our Government should be mass manufacturing and stockpiling Oxygen before the Indian variant hits us. We have been very fortunate so far, in that the number of cases we have are comparatively low. This good fortune will not last forever. Forget about the Royal-Thomian, forget about Vesak celebrations, prepare now or face an unimaginable catastrophe.

    SJ, looks like I pricked your self inflated EGO bubble. The second part of her essay gives an idea about the credibility of this author. At least I had the commonsense to wait for the second part before confronting ,where as you, thrilled seeing some one rambling your thoughts , went on a verbal diarrhea challenging others who were trying to talk some sense into your thick skull. Instead of conveniently avoiding why don’t you try commenting on her second piece.
