Non-mandated Community Safeguards Amidst Fear-based Groupthink
Addressing the issue of safety for communities with the presence of Omicron variant of COVID-19 and Groupthink fears generated over two years of ‘COVID News’ will require reading this with a ‘fresh perspective and open mind’.
[The information in this essay] contravenes the narrative of “safe and effective” gene-based vaccines and the goal of vaccinating most of the population. However, the phrase “following the science” means following the data as it comes to hand and therefore Science is about changing hypotheses, theories and conclusions in line with changing data. (Covid Medical Network Letter to Regulatory bodies)
Based on the assumption that the virus may lead to hospitalisation and severe illness, possibly death in a small subsection of the community, safety for these people must be considered.
Early in 2020, witnessing the rolling out of mass lockdowns, a group of highly qualified Doctors produced The Great Barrington Declaration, which is in alignment with traditional medical practice and pre-COVID pandemic plans.
“The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.”
It was eagerly signed by thousands of medical practitioners (now nearly 1 million), but it was undermined by Fauci (NIAID) and Collins (NIH) who organised ‘a quick and devastating published takedown’. This was revealed when emails between the two men were released after a FOIA request. The released emails were tweeted and can be seen online in several chat and news sites.
See this news report with screen shots of the emails, one above.
You can read The Real Story Behind Collins and Fauci’s Attack on the Great Barrington Declaration – written by Jay Bhattacharya and Martin Kulldorff, two of the scientists who wrote the declaration. I recommend reading this.
It is not too late to instigate ‘focused protection’.
This smear campaign was one of several that worsened the pandemic by silencing scientists and front-line medical practitioners.
Safety for the elderly
The Australian government has recently announced it will be spending more for aged care homes for RAT tests and vaccines. Plus, two new anti-viral oral tablets (Paxlovid and Lageviro) are available for vulnerable people (at risk of progressing to severe disease). Drugs used for asthma and other illnesses are used for different stages of the illness.
“In the COMET-ICE trial, unvaccinated participants with COVID-19 who received a single one-hour intravenous infusion of 500 mg sotrovimab [a monoclonal antibody] were found to have a 79% reduced rate of hospitalisation and death compared to those who received a placebo. [Questions remain about its efficacy in vaccinated and immunocompromised people.] Sotrovimab is so far among the treatments showing promise against the Omicron variant, with the Australian Government having recently secured an additional 46,000 units, bringing the country’s total to 81,000.” The above RACGP article provides full review of medications being used in Australia.
However, much more could be done, and more economically, with the introduction of the Phased Prevention and Early Treatment Protocol, again proposed early in 2020, but also suffering a similar smear campaign. Although prescription drugs are included there are many over the counter supplements that can be used such as Vitamins D and C, Zinc and Quercetin.

Prevention and Early treatment protocols – This protocol was first published in the American Journal of Medicine July 2020 (Epub ahead of print) by doctors working o nthe frontline treating patients.

A shorter protocol version was promoted amongst doctors.
Now updated for Omicron
Both Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, both cheap and universally used medications, have been subject to smear campaigns.
The TGA in Australia largely based their approval of the vaccines on the approval from the USA. “Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.”
See how Ivermectin was taken down by Dr Andrew Hill.

Nutrition advice – this varies and I have not seen specific studies. Diabetics, people with heart disease and obese people are most at risk of complications from COVID-19. One protocol suggests no or very low carbohydrate i.e. no sugary drinks or cereals, bone broth and water. The aim of the protocol is to keep blood glucose low-normal. A personal ‘nutritional needs’ basis is best.
Mouth gargle and nasal wash with Povidine iodine 1% strength (Betadine is 10% so needs to be diluted with water). There are several studies, and it ranks 5th in effectiveness where Paxlovid at $700 per treatment comes first at reported 96% and Povidine iodine is 88% and costs $1. This should be Public Health advice like washing your hands. The nose and mouth are the landing spots and first places for viral replication.
Vaccine injured protocols are available to assist those already injured by the vaccine. At present people who have suffered post vaccine illness unlike they have ever experienced before are being ignored and told they are anxious. They naturally search for answers and find links to illnesses that match theirs, but they are ignored. Without support for their physical illness, they are left suffering and frequently in financial and emotional distress.
Safety:risk analysis – there is now no medical reason to offer, let alone mandate COVID vaccines.
– assumption – the latest variant is mild so the safety:risk analysis that was presumably done by the TGA when the first two variants were causing morbidity needs to be redone.
Plus the reporting of an increasing number of adverse events, including hundreds of death, adds more weight to risk especially in the young with no comorbidities.
Two years on, many countries and some states of Australia are removing mandates and other COVID restrictions. How much this is related to public health advice, politics (approval ratings) and/or legal action remains unknown. However, as there is no case for the mandates (the vaccinated can catch and transmit the virus as easily as the unvaccinated) it is likely to be political.
So, looking at WA, it seems there is no political will for a Premier who has publicly said he is going to make life hard for the unvaccinated to reverse his decision even in the face of no threat of lack of ventilators and no emergency. He has the balance of power and can keep rolling over the Emergency Laws giving him Totalitarian rule.
Science looks at new evidence, new trends (data) and information (studies, previously hidden documents) that can change the narrative, however ‘groupthink’, as described by Thomas Kuhn (The Structure of Scientific revolutions) keeps many people, even those in scientific groups, stuck in the old narrative. Once it has been established it is hard to shake off (the Earth is the centre of the universe, smoking is good for you etc). It will be courageous leaders and politicians who dare to ‘call-out’ this abuse of human rights. Even medical practitioners have been threatened by AHPRA with ‘regulatory discipline’ if they use social media and post evidence-based findings that go against the Public Health narrative. It is probably a politically unsafe move to speak up.
Councillors may prefer to take the approach of waiting for the numbers of ‘cases’ to go down and for it to be ‘safe’ (politically and in the eyes of a large proportion of the community) to remove the mandates. In light of the evidence is this ethical? Does the City have a Duty of Care to its people?
Dr Clay Golledge, an infectious disease expert at Hollywood Hospital said in a WAToday news report, February 16th, 2022 “The days of mandates are rapidly running out because we have a high vaccination rate,”.
“Mandates have done their job in terms of dragging the reluctant 10 to 15 per cent of people who are vaccine-hesitant over the line.
But with Omicron everything has changed, it’s not the killer that it was.” They quote other health experts such as Catherine Bennett, WA Police Commissioner, Chris Dawson and Opposition health minister, and Libby Mettam who have claimed the current rules need to change. There is no public health justification for excluding unvaccinated people from venues in Western Australia.
Professor Milne from the University of WA who specialises in pandemics and vaccination research, has studied how Omicron will impact WA once the borders do reopen. His modelling showed a six-week peak after the borders open, with 43 people needing beds in ICU at the peak continuing for two weeks. He feels our hospital system can cope with that. However, Dr Clay Golledge said it is likely to be a lot less as he hadn’t factored in the use of the new antiviral drugs that became available last month. These will be available to vulnerable people.
The recently released “Letter to ATAGI, TGA, Fed Health-8March” is a 52 page report asking for clarification of medical issues and issues of grave concern. I don’t expect you will have the time or inclination to read it, but a quick scan will alert you to the immense dangers and safety issues we are likely to face because of these experimental gene therapy drugs.
I have also provided a link to a presentation that shows what pathologists are seeing on autopsy and live biopsies in people injured (sometimes fatally) by the vaccine. A normal autopsy may show cardiac arrest but unless histology is done, they will not see the lymphocytosis caused by the spike protein, manufactured by the introduced mRNA code. The document provided by Pfizer to the TGA, FOI released Pfizer documents and ongoing studies indicate that the spike protein is being found in cells outside the deltoid muscle. Sites include the heart, brain and ovaries but largest quantities in the liver, spleen and adrenal glands.
I hope you can see this is larger than discrimination against the unvaccinated. Ceasing the mandates and alerting people to the dangers of continuing the injected gene therapy drugs may prevent much suffering and early sudden death in the vaccinated.
