This is happening in Belgium. All of us, especially medical doctors, need to take a similar stance.
Below are salient points (1,500 words) taken from a long open letter (4,160 words) from Medical Doctors and Health Professionals to all Belgian authorities and all Belgian media:
Link to full open letter
As doctors and health professionals, in the face of a virus which, in terms of its harmfulness, mortality and transmissibility, approaches the seasonal influenza, we can only reject these extremely disproportionate measures.
- We therefore demand an immediate end to all measures.
- We are questioning the legitimacy of the current advisory experts, who meet behind closed doors.
- Following on from ACU 2020 46 https://acu2020.org/nederlandse-versie/ we call for an in-depth examination of the role of the WHO and the possible influence of conflicts of interest in this organisation. It was also at the heart of the fight against the “infodemic”, i.e. the systematic censorship of all dissenting opinions in the media. This is unacceptable for a democratic state governed by the rule of law.
Covid-19 followed the course of a normal wave of infection similar to a flu season. As every year, we see a mix of flu viruses following the curve: first the rhinoviruses, then the influenza A and B viruses, followed by the coronaviruses. There is nothing different from what we normally see.
The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test
The PCR test works with cycles of amplification of genetic material – a piece of genome is amplified each time. Any contamination (e.g. other viruses, debris from old virus genomes) can possibly result in false positives.
The test does not measure the virus load. If someone tests positive, this does not mean that person is actually clinically infected, is ill or is going to become ill. Koch’s postulate was not fulfilled (“The pure agent found in a patient with complaints can provoke the same complaints in a healthy person”). Most people who test positive have no symptoms. A positive PCR test does not always indicate active infection or infectivity, and does not justify the social measures.
Strengthening natural immunity is vital. Healthy, full-fledged nutrition, exercise in fresh air, without a mask, stress reduction and nourishing emotional and social contacts aids natural immunity.
There is no link between the imposed lockdown and the course of the infection. Lockdown has not led to a lower mortality rate.
Social isolation and economic damage led to an increase in depression, anxiety, suicides, intra-family violence and child abuse.
Studies have shown that the more social and emotional commitments people have, the more resistant they are to illness. Isolation and quarantine are likely to have fatal consequences.
Isolation has led to physical inactivity in seniors due to their forced lockdowns. Exercise, company, family has a positive effect on cognitive functioning, reducing depression, anxiety and improving physical health, energy levels, well-being and quality of life. Fear, persistent stress and loneliness induced by social distancing have a proven negative influence on psychological and general health.
Meanwhile, there is an affordable, safe and efficient therapy available for those who do show severe symptoms of disease in the form of HCQ (hydroxychloroquine), zinc and azithromycin. Applied early, this therapy leads to more rapid recovery. Hardly anyone has to die now.
Fraudulent research was found in the Lancet about HCQ. Massive overdoses were given during research and patients were killed because of dosing errors. Fraud was exposed and the research paper withdrawn by the Lancet.
In the US, a group of doctors in the field, who see patients on a daily basis, united in “America’s Frontline Doctors” and gave a press conference which has been watched millions of times. It has been repeatedly censored. They all advocate and use HCQ.
Spreading occurs by drip infection (only for patients who cough or sneeze) and aerosols in closed, unventilated rooms. Contamination is not possible in the open air. Epidemiological studies show that healthy people (or positively tested asymptomatic carriers) are unlikely to transmit the virus. Healthy people do not put each other at risk. Transfer via objects (e.g. money, shopping or shopping trolleys) has not been scientifically proven.
Oral masks in healthy individuals are ineffective against the spread of viral infections.
Wearing a mask can have side effects. Oxygen deficiency (headache, nausea, fatigue, loss of concentration) occurs fairly quickly, an effect similar to altitude sickness. Every day we now see patients complaining of headaches, sinus problems, respiratory problems and hyperventilation due to wearing masks. In addition, the accumulated CO2 leads to a toxic acidification of the organism which affects immunity. Some experts warn of increased transmission of the virus in cases of inappropriate use of masks.
Inappropriate use of masks without a comprehensive medical cardio-pulmonary test file is therefore not recommended by recognised safety specialists for workers. Hospitals have a sterile environment in their operating rooms where staff wear masks and there is precise regulation of humidity / temperature with appropriately monitored oxygen flow to compensate for this, thus meeting strict safety standards.
There has been an increase in the number of infections since mid-July, mainly in the active population with healthy immune systems. This group show none or limited symptoms. There’s no increase in hospital admissions or deaths. It is therefore not a second wave of corona, but a so-called “case chemistry” due to an increased number of tests.
So nothing has changed – the peak is over.
The Hippocratic Oath
As doctors, we all took the Hippocratic Oath:
“First do no harm.”
“I will above all care for my patients, promote their health and alleviate their suffering”.
“I will inform my patients correctly.”
“Even under pressure, I will not use my medical knowledge for practices that are against humanity.”
The current measures force us to act against this oath. With the prospect of a general vaccine, not subject to extensive prior testing, we do not wish to use our patients as guinea pigs.
Survey studies on flu vaccines show only 3 times in 10 years have we succeeded in developing an efficient vaccine of more than 50%. Elderly efficacy for over 75 years is almost non existent.
Vaccines are at most a temporary solution, requiring new vaccines each year. An untested vaccine, implemented under the guise of emergency procedures, where manufacturers have legal immunity from possible harm, raises serious questions.
On a global scale, 700,000 cases of damage or death are expected as a result of the untested vaccine. If 95% of people experience Covid-19 virtually symptom-free, the risk of exposure to an untested vaccine is irresponsible. Apart from that, Covid-19 is treatable.
Media and communication
Main stream media seem to be the mouthpieces of governments and their experts. Journalists should be asking questions and challenging new mandates. At the present time MSM is more like a propaganda machine.
It is the task of journalism to bring news as objectively and neutrally as possible, aimed at finding the truth and critically controlling power, with dissenting experts also being given a forum in which to express themselves. This view is supported by the journalistic codes of ethics. But alternative opinions are ignored or ridiculed.
Videos, articles and research, by many world class scientific experts, are being removed, if their opinions don’t match the hierarchy. This does not fit in with a free, democratic constitutional state. This policy also has a paralysing effect and feeds fear and concern in society.
The use in the media of phrases such as ‘care heroes in the front line’ and ‘corona victims’ has further fuelled fear, as has the idea that we are globally dealing with a ‘killer virus’ or ‘plague’.
Relentless bombardment of figures, continually unleashed on the population without any interpretation of those figures. There’s been no comparisons to flu deaths or deaths from other causes. Psychosis and fear abounds. This is not information, this is manipulation.
The WHO, has called for the infodemic or diverse opinions from those who don’t toe the party line, to be silenced by an unprecedented media censorship. This tyrannical campaign has to stop.
Emergency regulations, put in place because of predicted deaths of millions, is now invalid. The facts show this virus is easy to control and treat, with cheap and safe medications that have shown their safety over many decades. The mortality rate for COVID-19 is similar to seasonal flu.
In other words, there is no longer an insurmountable obstacle to public health. There is no longer a state of emergency.
Sound science seems to be eluding the leadership, with independent experts, studies and research being ignored or vilified. Fraudulent activities have muddied the waters even more and the public are confused and fearful.
Politicians need to inform themselves independently and critically about the available evidence. This includes consulting experts from outside the government bubble and exploring their views and knowledge. As long as it is based on sound science and backed up with genuine research.
Meanwhile, it is already recognised that lockdowns, masks, social distancing and other mandatory rulings will make no difference to the spread of this easy to treat virus. What it will do and already has done, is affect the population negatively to the extent that the outcome will be devastating and the death toll will rise because of governmental absolutism and tyranny, not the virus.
