CDC published yesterday:

The researchers found evidence that viral loads were similar among 127 fully vaccinated people and 84 others who were unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or whose vaccination status was unknown. Viral load is a proxy for how likely someone might be to transmit the virus to others.

SARS-CoV-2 viral load is associated with increased disease severity and mortality - OCT 30, 2020

" the first report that SARS-CoV-2 viral loads, especially detectable plasma viremia, predicted the risk of death"

if the unvaccinated and vaccinated have similar viral loads, doesn't that mean they are also equally sick?

this is a sampling from of the most vaccinated countries in the world. it is a random comparison of two dates in summer 2020 and summer 2021.

many countries had far less cases at the same time last year compared to the number of cases in 2021, even with the majority of the population vaccinated.

i'm still in the process of running the numbers again to verify their accuracy but based on my current understanding of the vaccination data, the early analysis indicates that 3 doses is one more than 2.

CDC investigations have found that the amount of virus present in vaccinated people infected with Delta is similar to the levels found in unvaccinated people with Delta infections. That's an indication that vaccinated people can easily transmit the virus - even though they're less likely to get sick on the whole.

the spike in cases is correlated with the spike in vaccinations. same pattern happening all over the world.

tell these people the mrna vaccine is safe. they did their part.

look. please don't just dismiss this as "fake news" because you are afraid to face the truth of the horror. really... LOOK into their eyes. feel the pain and suffering they are going through. explain to them how this was for the greater good.

the side effects are so horrific that death would seem like mercy.

these people cannot get the help they need because their experiences are being censored from platforms like youtube and facebook, while doctors are refusing to admit it's the mrna vaccine that caused it.

there is nothing immoral about people weighing the benefits against the risks and choosing not to go forward. i'm perfectly fine with quietly letting adults do what they want but i draw the line when children and teenagers are being subjected to this. 

children want nothing more than to be adults and many are getting the jab under the false impression that this is some sort of rite of passage...

but enough is enough, there has to be a better way. it was true in the time of hippocrates and it's true now... primum non nocere, FIRST do no harm.

Quantifying the risk of SARS‐CoV‐2 reinfection over time - May 17, 2021

Eleven large cohort studies were identified that estimated the risk of SARS‐CoV‐2 reinfection over time, including three that enrolled healthcare workers and two that enrolled residents and staff of elderly care homes. Across studies, the total number of PCR‐positive or antibody‐positive participants at baseline was 615,777, and the maximum duration of follow‐up was more than 10 months in three studies. Reinfection was an uncommon event (absolute rate 0%–1.1%), with no study reporting an increase in the risk of reinfection over time. - July 13. 2021

Health Ministry data on the wave of COVID outbreaks which began this May show that Israelis with immunity from natural infection were far less likely to become infected again in comparison to Israelis who only had immunity via vaccination.

More than 7,700 new cases of the virus have been detected during the most recent wave starting in May, but just 72 of the confirmed cases were reported in people who were known to have been infected previously – that is, less than 1% of the new cases. - Feb 8, 2021

Conclusions Reinfection is rare. Natural infection appears to elicit strong protection against reinfection with an efficacy ∼95% for at least seven months

It's too difficult to work out whether 20 deaths a day in one country is more or less than 42 deaths a day in another country of similar size? More or less than 14 deaths a day in a country with twice the population?

i'm not so good at maths but 14 coronavirus deaths a day in japan out of an average of 3500 all cause mortality deaths per day in japan (based statistics bureau numbers) is about what... less than 0.5%?

do people not trust their eyes anymore? does this like a man suffering from any sort of illness to you? if you were a child telling your parents you weren't going to school with this level of vigor, do you think they'd let you stay home? my dad wouldn't take me to the hospital for a pcr test, he'd take me to get treated for concussion symptoms from smacking my head across the room.

Posted in: Kono says local gov'ts need to slow down vaccinations due to supply crunch See in context

the slow down is a masterful tactic that has proven to be effective. in the past month, i've seen significantly more online comments from japanese people who have figured it out. any earlier gene therapy roll-out means those people would have been exposed into making a decision on limited information and without informed consent.

slowing down now is probably meant to function in the same way. there doesn't seem to as much censorship in japan (other than some places..cough) so information is filtering through to where it needs to go. it's quite impressive kono was wise enough to not let the pressure of the olympics cloud his judgement. he understands that political capital means nothing under the circumstances.

Posted in: Italy beats England in penalty shootout to win Euro 2020 See in context

what a sham... glad i wasted zero time on this.

i can understand national pride to some extent but i fail to understand how there is any actual competitive integrity in a sport that determines the winner of matches with a random game of chance that barely has anything to do with the 120 minutes that preceded it.

it's not just euro 2020, it's every single major tournament... inevitably let down by nothing of significance happening until the penalty kicks. at the elite level, there is not enough variability in the sport to cause mistakes which lead to goals. players know how to mitigate the errors, so matches can be reduced to running out the clock with a stalemate until PK's. are you not entertained!?

football will never be a real sport until fifa decides that the players should play until they either pass out from exhaustion or someone scores an actual goal.

controlling anywhere from 10%-20% of ownership, blackrock and vanguard are the top 3 institutional investors in the following companies;

viacom, disney, comcast, at&t, fox, newscorp, time warner, exxon, chevron, general electric, alphabet/google, facebook, twitter, apple, microsoft, pfizer, johnson and johnson, merck, moderna, walmart, amazon, tesla, phillips, american airlines, delta, united, southwest (2,4)

no one knows who controls blackrock and vanguard (the two biggest asset holders in the world) but it is said to be the same entity pulling the strings.

the wall street journal reported a couple of weeks ago that blackrock is now buying up single family houses for 20-50% more than asking price all over america, driving up the market and pricing regular people out.

i know the fine, well-educated folk on JT know all about blackrock and vanguard but if you asked 100 people off the street how many know about them?

the definition of a conspiracy is a group of people working in secret to advance illegal or immoral plans.

where does the line draw for something to be considered a conflict of interest? conspiracy theory or conspiracy fact? i'm not drawing any conclusions, feel free to connect the dots yourself...

when are you people going to get it? the governments and bureaucrats are going to keep pushing and restricting until you have zero freedom left because their goal is complete eradication of the virus, which any rational person would tell you is impossible.

how many of you checked for the number of dead people before this pandemic? newsflash, people die and there is no more than it's ever been. it's not healthy to be morbidly fixated on illness day after day.

this ends when people say it ends. take off your masks, breathe deep from the collective trauma you have been needlessly subjected to and enjoy your lives...

it seems disingenuous to call out the hypocrisy of government officials without pointing out the hypocrisy of a society that calls for gender equality yet doesn't hold women accountable for their actions.

clearly, if matt hancock's wife with her lockdown love handles had cut a mouth sized hole in one of those government mandated face coverings and given him a blowie once a week in the interest of national security this entire fiasco could have been avoided.

the japanese government did the only thing they could do with this experimental mrna injection roll-out... slow and delay as much as possible for people to have more time to continue gathering evidence that this type of medical intervention is unsafe. this is especially important in a country where information often has to trickle down translated from english sources thirdhand.

with this experiment, the only thing that could definitely be said about altering mrna is that it's impossible to know the outcome. as there have been no long term trials, it is false to categorically state whether it is safe or dangerous.

therefore, it is only rational to be open minded and keep an eye out for new research being carried out.

a few days ago the results of a recent study conducted by the japanese (!) government on the pfizer mrna gene therapy was released.

this data is probably meaningless to most people so here is a canadian doctor interpreting the findings

many doctors have come to similar conclusions using different data and methodologies

it is also important to bear in mind human nature and the historical development of new ideas in science... progress doesn't come from the established order but rather from people going against commonly held beliefs. eventually, fringe ideas reach a tipping point and become the new paradigm. the old guard usually doesn't change their mind, they die out with their obsolete ideas. with the way things are going, it will be difficult to defend mrna gene editing when there is no one around to defend it...

all one has to do is see that jesuit stooge taro aso, a man so desperate to be part of the club that he married his daughter off to a rothschild, is behind this and it's clear this idea is dead in the water.

the largest companies in japan make actual things. cars, clothes, pharmaceuticals, robotics, machine parts, appliances, telecommunications, technology. the last thing japan needs is more talent being siphoned off from ものづくり to the fast money of the financial world.

let singapore have their financial centre... it's a soulless, cultural wasteland, nanny state with not much else going for it than a high gdp per capita and great food. it's the perfect example of how a government prioritizing economic growth over everything is a bore.

when singapore can sell a billion game consoles, or force american motor giants to rethink their strategy, or produce multiple world champion boxers, or develop lasers that are in every single blu-ray player, or have two decades of creating preeminent jazz, or be first in the world with 8k broadcasts, or has their country in it's own specialized category on porn sites (that are not blocked from access without workarounds) people can start talking about singapore being anywhere near as vibrant a place to live as japan.

i'm okay with there being hoops for foreigners to live in japan. simply having capital shouldn't be the measure for who gets to be here. people with the patience to deal with the bureaucratic mess that is japan in good humour and also dedicated enough to learn the language is what it takes for japanese society to function as it does. though a little kaizen couldn't hurt...
