Despite growing awareness of the risks of COVID-19 vaccines, many people are willing to take their chances in hopes of slashing their odds of getting severely ill or dying from COVID-19. However, those who are calculating the risk versus reward might want to keep a recent study in mind that indicates an association between the vaccines and a higher rate of COVID-19 infections and deaths.
The study, Worldwide Bayesian Causal Impact Analysis of Vaccine Administration on Deaths and Cases Associated with COVID-19: A Big Data Analysis of 145 Countries, essentially found that vaccines are doing precisely the opposite of what everyone hoped they would accomplish.
As the title indicates, this was not a small study; it involved analyzing data from 145 counties, and the conclusions are mind-blowing: The vaccines were associated with a 38 percent rise in the number of Covid cases per million in the U.S. and a 31 percent rise in the number of deaths per million associated with Covid. And it’s not the only one to reach this conclusion; many other studies have shown that the overall situation seems to get worse, not better, with more vaccination.
Overall, the study found that 89.94 percent of the 145 countries studied experienced a rise in total deaths per million associated with Covid as a direct result of the causal impact of vaccines, while 86.78 percent of countries noted a rise in total cases per million of the virus as a direct result of the causal impact of vaccines.
The study reports: “Results indicate that the treatment (vaccine administration) has a strong and statistically significant propensity to causally increase the values in either y1 [variable chosen for deaths per million] or y2 [variable chosen for cases per million] over and above what would have been expected with no treatment.”
The study reached its findings after carrying out a causal analysis that compared pre- and post-treatment periods to determine the differences in cases and deaths since the vaccines were implemented using publicly available COVID-19 data. After eliminating the results from countries that had incomplete data or very low vaccination rates, they came up with 128 countries that had sufficient data on deaths and 103 for examining total cases, for a total of 145 unique countries.
Interestingly, the countries that noted the fewest Covid deaths in 2020 saw the biggest jumps in cases and deaths after the introduction of the vaccine, with some noting rises of as much as 1,000 percent. Some of the countries that fared the worst in this regard include Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, Seychelles, Cambodia and Mongolia.
It’s a very disheartening finding, particularly for the many people who got these vaccines because they believed what governments around the world were telling us: that getting vaccinated would help the world get back to normal and allow people to enjoy their freedoms. In many cases, people who had serious reservations about the potential risks of the jabs got them anyway because they faced losing their jobs and livelihoods. The vaccines were supposed to bring infections and deaths down, not up.
It’s time for a new approach
The study suggests a new approach to dealing with the pandemic: “These results should encourage local policy makers to make policy decisions based on data, not narrative, and based on local conditions, not global or national mandates. These results should also encourage policy makers to begin looking for other avenues out of the pandemic aside from mass vaccination campaigns.”
While there’s a lot more money to be made from giving the entire population vaccines followed by endless boosters, the only real way out of this is finding safe and effective prevention and treatments. From communicating the importance of having sufficient levels of nutrients to acknowledging the efficacy of treatments like Ivermectin, there is much more that could be done right now to alleviate the pandemic than focusing on vaccines that aren’t living up to their promises.
