You know you are screwed when "fact checkers' on Covid vaccination are funded by a foundation with massive stocks in Johnson and Johnson, a company making DNA vector vaccines.

It cannot get worse than this.

In-your-face scams have become the fashion this year.

The results are bound to be disastrous.

No wonder they are licking their lips in anticipation of jabbing 6 months old.

In the current world, fiscal power is infinitely more powerful than nuclear energy.

Clearly vaccines are not working as promised.

Vaccines do not stop infection, transmission nor serious disease.

In Israel, right now, almost one third of patients hooked to a ventilator are fully vaccinated.

Israel also has the highest number of Covid cases per million despite having one of the highest per capita vaccination rates in the world.

There is a deliberate attempt to erase the reality of successful early treatment by cheap drugs by certain powerful forces with vested interest.

Mass vaccination is definitely not the answer to the current Pandemic.

Especially when cheap, safe and effective drugs are available to tackle the Covid virus.

I do not manufacture, distribute, or sell ivermectin. I have no stocks in any company that produces ivermectin. I am not in any committee that sets down guidelines regarding covid treatment or management. There are absolutely no conflicts of interest where I am concerned.

But I get disturbed when I read reports of young people in the West who are sent back home to get sicker without being provided any kind of treatment. I get even more disturbed when leading newspapers publish pieces on the sufferings of these young people afflicted with covid. Some of these young people land up in hospitals and even get admitted to intensive care.

What is shocking is that even after more than a year of chaos powerful people are adamant in their stance against ivermectin Actually it will be now 2 years according to credible reports, since the start of the pandemic.

This unyielding rigid stand against ivermectin is not only unreasonable but downright suspicious with so much data of efficacy with ivermectin available in the literature.

I doubt if any doctor in the NIH, CDC, or the White House group has treated a patient with covid.

We now have a large Indian trial including more than 3500 health care workers published in a peer-reviewed journal that reveals a relative 83% reduction in infection with ivermectin prophylaxis. There was in fact a 10% absolute lowering in infection. Cases were confirmed by a PCR test.

Adverse effects were seen in only 1.8%, these were mild, brief, and settled down without hospitalization. Frankly, 2 tablets of ivermectin are just not capable of producing serious side effects. Ivermectin has been used for more than 3 decades.

Symptomatic infection was reduced from 15% to 6%. Is it just lack of empathy or compassion that drives the propaganda against ivermectin or is something more simple like fiscal benefit?

But will the New York Times, Washington Post, Guardian, Sunday Times, Times of India, or Indian Express bother to do a write-up on this study? Absolutely not. You can be sure they will not touch it.

The New York Times instead, as I say in my video, goes to great lengths to describe how an unvaccinated American young man lands up in intensive care for 11 days. What the newspaper does not explain why this young man was not given any treatment while he languished at home after being found to be covid positive. He was packed off with an oximeter and little or no other advice. He took no treatment, deteriorated at home, and was compelled to arrive to the hospital emergency.

Was any one of the known effective medicines tried on him? No, they were not. Certainly not ivermectin, nor fluvoxamine, nor famotidine. Not even budesonide?

Scaremongering at its very best. Move over Mr. Francisco Scaramanga. You were fiction buddy, this is for real.

JAMA Cardiol. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2021.2735

This recent single blind randomised trial shows that there is significant reduction in ambulatory systolic and diastolic blood pressure by walking briskly thrice a week for 3 months in patients with resistant hypertension.

Hypertension is considered "resistant "when blood pressure cannot be controlled with 3 anti hypertensive medicines including a diuretic (water tablet).

Meta-analysis of randomised trials including more than 62ooo patients has already revealed that (in the old) reducing systolic blood pressure by 10 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by 4 mm Hg lowers rate of stroke by 30% and acute heart attack by 23%.

Reduction of diastolic blood pressure by 5-6 mm Hg cuts stroke by more than 35% and  heart attack by 16%.

This randomised trial published in JAMA reports reduction of office systolic blood pressure of 10 mm Hg after  only 3 months of brisk walking , and day time lowering of systolic blood pressure by 8 mm Hg and  diastolic blood pressure by 6 mm Hg.

Regular brisk walk or cycling not only reduces high blood pressure but also high blood sugar and increased weight.

So if you suffer from high blood pressure and a doctor advises against a brisk walk or a jog  do NOT take him seriously.

John Rahm an almost certain medal prospect in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics was disallowed from competing because he turned out covid positive despite full vaccination.

He was found to be positive in June and was forced to withdraw from the Memorial tournament, then.

There are no details of his second covid positive test a month later. Most probably if it was a PCR test, it has picked up dead remnants of the covid virus.

Rahm had to take four PCR tests in the United Kingdom before coming to Tokyo. He failed three consecutive tests as per the Spanish Olympic Committee.

Rahm, as per reports, was administered the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. The explanation provided for the first positive covid test in June was that he competed within 14 days of vaccination.

There are now 3 case reports published that describe an acute myocardial infarction soon after the first dose of the Moderna mRNA vaccine.

The first case is a 96 years old lady who had no previous cardiac history. She developed chest pain one hour after being administered the first dose of Moderna Covid vaccine. Her ECG showed ST-segment elevation in the V1 V2 and aVL leads. A bed site ultrasound revealed anterior wall motion abnormality. The patient refused cardiac catheterization and was therefore put on medical treatment consisting of a heparin IV drip. Her troponin was raised. The patient was discharged in a stable condition after 3 days.

The second case, also a woman, developed chest pain within 24 hours of the first Moderna Covid vaccine shot. In the hospital, a bedside ultrasound revealed inferno and lateral wall motion abnormalities. Troponin was raised. Coronary angiography showed a totally blocked left circumflex artery. The patient underwent stenting of the culprit artery.

The second patient was a male who had chest pain with radiation to the, lower jaw soon after the first Moderna vaccine jab. The symptoms began within 24 hours. A CT coronary angiogram revealed a totally blocked left circumflex coronary artery. On invasive coronary angiography in the cath lab there was a 90% block in the left circumflex artery that was predicated and stented.

Excellent antegrade flow was achieved in both cases.

The take-home message is that albeit an acute heart attack is uncommon post-vaccination it must always be kept in mind if a person develops chest pain soon after the first dose of the Moderna mRNA vaccine against Covid 19. The exact pathogenesis remains to be established, but these 3 cases presented with a thrombus in their culprit vessel.

But the question remains, what exactly triggered the thrombus in the culprit coronary artery?

It is more or less clear that the effectiveness of vaccines is dwindling substantially after 6 months, and this must have been known to the companies that manufacture them. The level of antibodies against the Astra Zeneca (AZ) vaccine is markedly lowered after a mere 70 days, as published in The Lancet.

Public Health England has published data (in the NEJM )that the effectiveness of the AZ vaccine against the Delta variant is less than 70% and around 88% with the Pfizer vaccine.

University College London suggests that effectiveness is just 0% against mild infection and 60% against severe infection.

The Israeli health ministry has acknowledged a study that effectiveness against serious infection against the delta variant is around 50% in those over 60 years. This is understandable as old people are unable to ramp up antibody production.

None of these studies have measured T cells or memory B cells that may endure much longer and tackle the severe infection. On the field, however, breakthrough infections are on the rise.

Against this information we now learn from there noted British journalist Piers Morgan that he contracted the Covid 19 virus in the Euro Cup finals between England and Italy. He developed a high fever accompanied by cough and body aches. One of his favorite wines tasted like “rusty water” because of his loss of smell and taste. Albeit he is on the road to recovery his doctor has advised high dose corticosteroids to prevent “long covid.”

There is no randomized trial on high-dose corticosteroids to prevent long covid. Or is that despite 2 jabs of the AZ vaccine Piers still managed to get severe Covid.

Piers also mentions Andrew Marr (with the BBC) who contracted the virus in the G7 Summit despite, yes, 2 vaccine jabs. I do not have the details of the gravity of Mr. Marr’s illness.

The fact remains that 2 vaccine jabs are no guarantee against contracting C -19. Which brings us to the question as to why Piers was not offered effective early treatment for his illness. It is time that Piers does some research on ivermectin, fluvoxamine, and anti-androgen drugs.

It would do the community and people at large on the planet if Piers writes on ivermectin or the impact of early treatment. Common sense dictates that if the virus is tackled within 2-4 days there is very little possibility of any immune reaction developing in the future.

I have a soft corner for Piers because I have watched him face 6 balls (ouch !) from Bret Lee, one of the fastest bowlers emerging from Aussie. Bret could easily touch 150 K/hour in his peak, and that is faaaaast. If nothing else Piers has guts. The over may not be in the league of a Shoaib Akhtar bowling to Sachin Tendulkar, Malcolm Marshall attacking Sunil Gavaskar, or Dennis Lillee hurling a cork ball at Vivian Richards, but it is still worth watching. “Bring it on” urges Piers after being struck by Bret Lee, some pluck.

If only Piers had been provided ivermectin right away on the 13th or 14th of July. Here is wishing him complete recovery from the damn virus.

The Israeli prime minister notes that the Pfizer vaccine is significantly less effective against the Delta variant.

The English health secretary reveals he is infected by C19 despite full vaccination; implying that because he has "mild" symtoms the vaccine has mitigated the intensity of the infection or that the vaccine really did not help much.

Countries with the highest per capita vaccination are experiencing a surge by the Delta variant.

In India, however, 4 states ( Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, and Karnataka have decided to promote ivermectin as a prophylactic for good reasons.

Most Indian physicians in India who have treated C19 patients with ivermectin are impressed by its effectiveness.

Every patient with Covid that I have treated with Ivermectin recovered within a few days. The oldest gentlemen were 78 and 80 years, both had diabetes.

Vaccination should be restricted to the vulnerable and till fully vaccinated should use ivermectin for prevention.

The Guardian would do itself credit by seeking the opinion of Indian physicians who have actually used iveremctin to treat patients with Covid 19.

Data on 789 professional athletes infected with Covid 19 reveals that only 0.6 % suffered inflammation in the heart, that is 5 of 789.

Also none of these athletes had moderate or severe Covid 19, underlining the fact that the young do not get severe C 19 infection.

The average age of the cohort was 25 years and 98% were males. They were tested around 19 days after symptom onset.

27 athletes underwent cardiac MRI that showed inflammation in only 5 of the 789 (0.6%).

Resumption of training and competition should be delayed by 3- 6months in the presence of heart inflammation.

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamacardiology/fullarticle/2777308?guestAccessKey=62e0897e-544a-4abe-b41e-401983df9ec4&utm_source=silverchair&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=article_alert-jamacardiology&utm_content=etoc&utm_term=071221

Two recently published meta-analyses of randomised trial with ivermectin in patients with Covid 19 have shown significant reduction in mortality. Lower levels of inflammatory markers ( d Dimer, CRP and ferritin) have been associated with ivermectin , as also quicker clearance of C19 virus.

Strangely there has hardly been any stir in the Western press; it is difficult to fathom the reasons. Hopefully the Indian press gets more excited.

The 2 trials need exposure, especially considering “breakthrough” infections despite being fully vaccinated against the Delta variant.

It is obvious that more C 19 variants shall keep popping up.

Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infection: A Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Trial Sequential Analysis to Inform Clinical Guidelines
American Journal of Therapeutics 28, e434–e460 (2021)

Meta-analysis of randomized trials of ivermectin to treat SARS-CoV-2 infection
Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of Infectious Diseases Society of America.

Numerous series of myocarditis following the second jab of an mRNA vaccine have been published in leading peer-reviewed journals. The common theme is that young men develop myocarditis within 3-5 days after the second jab, most have severe chest pain, elevated troponins suggesting heart muscle cellular damage, ECG changes, signs of heart inflammation on cardiac MRI, and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction on 2 D echocardiogram. One patient had an ejection fraction as low as 35%. All these patients needed hospitalisation. The researchers report that number of cases was much greater than normally observed.
The verdict however is that myocarditis is "rare", "mild" and the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks in children.
Against this background, we have a news report in the Times of Israel that more than 75 schoolchildren have contracted (delta) Covid 19; it began with one schoolchild getting infected by a vaccinated relative, who in turn got infected by a vaccinated person returning from the UK.
The Israeli government may reimpose restrictions starting next week. The moot point is whether vaccines are ineffective against Delta or whether the Israeli government wants to motivate more people to get vaccinated, especially children.

Amyloid is an abnormal protein that infiltrates the heart, kidney, liver and nervous system.

When deposited in the heart it causes right heart failure, heart block, and ventricular tachycardia.

Cardiac amyloidosis is a fatal disease that substantially shortens one's life span to 2 to 6 years.

Cardiac amyloidosis, however, is not a rare disease.

15% of “low flow low gradient aortic stenosis “patients have cardiac amyloidosis.

15% to 30% of patients with diastolic heart failure have cardiac amyloidosis

Cardiac amyloidosis is diagnosed by ECG showing small QRS complexes, by 2D echo showing thickened ventricular walls, thick interatrial septum, and thickened valves. There is also evidence of reduced ventricular filling.

Cardiac MRI shows patchy late gadolinium enhancement.

There are 2 kinds of amyloidosis, one caused by light chain immunoglobulins, and the other is TTR or transthyretin amyloidosis. TTR amyloidosis can be either acquired or inherited.

Inherited TTR amyloidosis is due to more than 100 mutations in a TTR gene in the liver.

Drug therapy for TTR amyloid has not been too successful.

The NEJM last week published a pilot study in 6 patients with inherited TTR amyloidosis. This is a landmark trial because this is the first time the CRISPR-Cas9 system has been used in patients with inherited TTR amyloidosis

An IV injection with a CRISPR- Cas 9 gene editing system was given. This is a complex of a guide RNA and Cas 9 enzyme in a nanoparticle. The guide RNA carries the gene-editing enzyme Cas9 to the gene in the liver, where it cuts the TTR gene. The cut gene can no longer produce TTR protein.

In 28 days there was an 87% reduction in TTR levels, one patient had a decline of 96%.

Adverse effects were mild, few, and brief. Only a single shot is required.

It is imperative of course that more trials. are done to confirm the safety and efficacy of this pilot study using the CRISPR-Cas 9 system, which was discovered in a bacterial immune system.

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry (2020) was awarded to two women scientists who transformed a bacterial immune mechanism, commonly called CRISPR, into editing the genomes of everything from wheat to mosquitoes to humans. 

The award went jointly to Emmanuelle Charpentier of the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens and Jennifer Doudna of the University of California, Berkeley, “for the development of a method for genome editing.”
