A Possible Reason Why COVID Isn’t Going Away

When is a pandemic over?
The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-19—although it had a mild resurgence in the winter of 1920—had run its course by its second year.
“The end of the [1918-19] pandemic occurred because the virus circulated around the globe, infecting enough people that the … population no longer had enough susceptible people … for the strain to become a pandemic once again,” says medical historian J. Alexander Navarro, assistant director of the Center for the History of Medicine. “When you get enough people who get immunity, the infection will slowly die out because it’s harder for the virus to find new susceptible hosts.” (tinyurl.com/3269cc9n)
When President Biden* announced “the pandemic is over,” it seems what he really meant was the U.S. government would no longer foot the bill for COVID related expenses. (The White House plans to end both the national emergency and public health emergency by May 11.) (tinyurl.com/2ndtddaf)
So, what kind of mess are we currently in? It now appears the COVID vaccine may be prolonging the pandemic with no foreseeable end. As we bide our time for the virus to become endemic, significant numbers of new cases are arising in countries with the highest vaccine booster rates, including the U.S.
According to author Daniel Horowitz, in the December 29, 2022 Conservative Review (although the subject matter is very dense, he says), a recent German paper** published in Science Immunology implies “the Pfizer shots (and possibly other mRNA spike protein shots) caused the immune system to misfire, thereby creating an endless feedback loop of viral immune escape, perpetuating the pandemic in the macro, and creating immune suppression for the individuals who received them.”
Horowitz continues … “not only do these shots fail to produce the first line of defense antibodies known as IgA in the mucosal … but even the blood-based antibodies are increasingly the wrong type. This problem seems to get worse over time and with more doses of the shot.”
Horowitz reports many countries in the Pacific Rim that fared well in 2020 and 2021 appear to have had a bigger problem in 2022 with less virulent strains. Further, he says it isn’t normal that “so many people continue to get the virus multiple times.”
Africans appear not to die from COVID. Nigeria, for example, has a vaccination rate much lower than Japan and Australia. These two countries had almost as low a death rate as Nigeria, but only prior to their vaccine booster campaign. Nigeria’s booster rate is almost nonexistent.
The COVID shot has already proved to have continuing dire effects on the health of many, with injuries such as myocarditis (inflammation of the heart) and even deaths caused by the vaccine itself. Masquerading as a vaccine (that is really gene therapy), it looks as though the shot may be extending the pandemic, as long as the medical establishment continues to push COVID vaccine boosters.
