FDA Just Called Out Fauci’s CDC For Massive Vax Coverup
by Jeff Miller
The CDC has withheld substantial portions of data regarding the impact of COVID-19, causing anger among scientists and speculation that the agency is protecting its boosting case in specific demographics by not releasing the data.
A CDC study published two weeks ago examined the effectiveness of boosters in adults under 65 years of age.
A vaccination booster is considered least likely to benefit those aged 18-49, so the agency, led by Dr. Rochelle Walensky, didn’t share information on them.
Additionally, scientists complained they had not been able to obtain the information they held about the hospitalization of children.
According to CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund, the agency was slow to release the different streams of data because they are not yet ready for implementation.
According to her, the agency’s ‘priority when gathering any data is to ensure that it’s accurate and actionable,’ and expressed concern that it might be misinterpreted as meaning vaccines were ineffective.
In addition, she said the CDC resisted publishing the data because it accounted for only 10 percent of the United States’ population – 33 million people – the same sample size it has used for years to track influenza in the United States.
Considering the low death rate among this age group, the booster is less likely to benefit the 18-49 age group. Older people and immunocompromised people are more likely to get sick without boosters than young and middle-aged healthy people.
Only last month, boosters for children aged 12 and up became available, thus not covered by the dataset.
The current vaccination rate among Americans is 65 percent.
An average of 103,150 new cases were reported nationwide every week, compared with more than 700,000 daily in January.
The outraged scientists stressed the importance of educating the public about vaccinations in conjunction with publishing the data. They explained that as more people get vaccinated, the percentage of vaccinated people getting infected or receiving hospitalization would also rise.
In their letter, they urged the CDC to publish the information.
‘Tell the truth, present the data,’ says Dr. Paul Offit, a vaccine expert as well as an adviser to the Food and Drug Administration.
‘I have to believe that there is a way to explain these things so people can understand it.’
In the absence of CDC publications, American researchers were forced to rely on Israeli data.
‘There’s no reason that they should be better at collecting and putting forth data than we were,’ he added.
‘The CDC is the principal epidemiological agency in this country, and so you would like to think the data came from them.’
Another said she was shocked the CDC had the data at all.
‘We have been begging for that sort of granularity of data for two years,’ Jessica Malaty Rivera, an epidemiologist, added. During the pandemic, she worked on the Covid Tracking Project, which provided data about the pandemic on a website until March 2021.
She denies that the data can be misinterpreted and says that instead, it ‘builds public trust, and it paints a much clearer picture of what’s actually going on.’
She continued: ‘It gets really exhausting when you see the private sector working faster than the premier public health agency of the world.’
As chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Committee on Infectious Diseases, Dr. Yvonne Maldonado said she had requested from the CDC statistics about how many children hospitalized for COVID have other medical conditions.
Eventually, she was able to find what she needed thanks to a report in the New York Times.
‘They’ve known this for over a year and a half, right, and they haven’t told us,’ she said.
‘I mean, you can’t find out anything from them.’
Computer systems at the CDC are outdated, which is part of the problem.
Recent funding of $1 billion will allow the agency to upgrade its technology and process data faster.
An early benefit of this research will be an analysis of wastewater, which can tell scientists when an outbreak of COVID has occurred before tests confirm it.
Delta variants were identified in wastewater long before individuals were tested.
31 states’ data are currently available on the dashboard, with the CDC aiming to upload the rest later this year.
It’s not the first time the CDC has misled the public. There was an Arizona study that drew criticism from physicians.
According to this study, a “covid outbreak” is defined as “two or more” positive lab tests among students and staff. So if you have two asymptomatic 4th graders in your classroom, you have a “covid outbreak.”
In addition, researchers weighted an “outbreak” as equally as dozens of symptomatic teachers and students. Two equals 50, at least according to the CDC.
CDC minimized the fact that the unmasked and masked student groups did not differ significantly in a study in Georgia that had a sufficient control arm. They have also downplayed the importance of diet and exercise during this time of crisis. Despite knowing life-saving outpatient treatment protocols, they failed to communicate them effectively.
