How Twitter Rigged the Covid Debate ☞ The Free Press

“But Twitter did suppress views—and not just those of journalists like Berenson.

As a result, legitimate findings and questions about our Covid policies and their consequences went missing.”

Elderly leave cities as COVID infections surge in China ☞Al Jazeera

The dumbest, most dishonest argument for Covid jabs yet ☞ Alex Berenson – Substack

“Thus the updated paper is claiming that the mRNA jabs prevented an additional 1 million Covid deaths and 54 million infections in the last eight months. – That estimate is at least 20 times the actual infection fatality rate for the Omicron variant – and not because of vaccines. In 2020, before vaccines existed, the original Sars-Cov-2 had an infection fatality rate in the range of 0.3 percent – and Omicron is significantly less lethal than the original.”

China Appears to Be ‘Solving’ “Zero-Covid” Misstep by Renaming Coronavirus ☞ Legal Insurrection

Why can’t Anthony Fauci explain key early-COVID decisions? ☞ New York Post

“He was “afraid” that ‘blaming the Chinese’ for the outbreak would ‘increase tensions and reduce cooperation’ with Beijing that was absolutely necessary to prevent future pandemics and get to the bottom of this one. In other words, if we suggest that the virus came from a Wuhan lab, then China won’t let us investigate … whether it came from a Wuhan lab.”

Biden Administration Funding Study to Train Drug Addicts to Distribute COVID Tests ☞ Legal Insurrection

The project summary emphasizes that ‘people who inject drugs’ are especially vulnerable to the outbreak of COVID-19 due to ‘structural disadvantage, health vulnerabilities, and stigmatization that prevents adequate access to medical care’ This issue will be addressed through a ‘facilitation of rapid testing by people who inject drugs (PWID) via a supported employment program that trains PWID (people who inject drugs) as peer health workers.’

Covid news: FDA authorizes omicron vaccine for kids as young as 6 months ☞ CNBC

“Children 6 months through 5 years old who received Moderna’s two-dose primary series are now eligible for an omicron booster two months after their second shot. Kids ages 6 months through 4 years old who have not yet received the third dose of Pfizer’s primary series will now receive the omicron shot as their third dose. But kids in the same age group who have already completed Pfizer’s three-dose primary series cannot get the omicron shot as a booster, or fourth dose, at this time.”

The Hijacking of Pediatric Medicine ☞ The Free Press

“Opposing those bureaucracies—and the Covid policies they formulated—became a professional risk. One pediatrician said her bosses threatened to fire her for tweeting critically about the AAP’s vaccine recommendations. ‘They hauled me into the office and asked me if I wanted to work there,’ the doctor said, adding that she knew of colleagues who were terrified of speaking out. Another pediatrician described how the president of her state AAP chapter told her to pipe down about Covid restrictions if she didn’t want to lose funding for an academic program.”
