Horowitz: Is Europe getting crushed by variant completely immune to COVID shots?

Op-ed
Our World in Data

With a 62.7% vaccination rate, Austria not only has a higher rate than the U.S., but most of the population has been vaccinated relatively recently, which should give those people better protection. Yet the country is experiencing its most prolific outbreak ever, as we are seeing across the globe, with a near-perfect inverse relationship between vaccination rates and COVID case rates. Now, Austria and other European countries are staring down the barrel of a completely new mutation, which German researchers believe might be completely immune to the vaccine-mediated antibodies.

According to Our World in Data, the Central European countries and the Baltic states currently have the highest case rates per capita in the world.

Most of them have higher case rates per million people than the U.S. ever had, but nearly all of them have recently been vaccinated. Slovenia now has over 1,300 cases per million, more than six times the rate in the U.S. Its vaccination rate is comparable to ours, except that most people were more recently vaccinated, which, if anything, should give them more immunity. Other Central and Eastern European states getting hammered have lower vaccination rates, but the Baltic states have higher rates. Then, of course, there is Ireland, with the highest vaccination rate in the EU, yet cases are surging, particularly in the parts of the country that have near 100% vaccination among adults.

We already know from the U.K. data, the most granular and continuous of all world data, that the vaccine has negative efficacy against cases and increasingly low efficacy against critical illness, as over 82% of all deaths are among the vaccinated, according to the most recent weekly report from the U.K. Health Security Agency data. Now, according to a new study, Europe is likely experiencing a wave of a new variant that is completely immune to all the shots, a wave that will make anyone in the U.S. who has not experienced prior infection and does not have a plan for early treatment susceptible to serious illness.

Trial Site News is reporting on a study from German and Czech researchers who conducted genomic analysis from samples in the border region between Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic. They found that the predominant strain is no longer Delta. It is, in fact, a sublineage of the U.K.'s Alpha SARS-CoV-2 variant, known as B.1.1.7, and is likely responsible for the rapid surge throughout Europe. They believe it is the predominant strain in the Czech Republic, Austria, and Slovakia and that this mutant is "3.2 fold less sensitive to vaccine-elicited antibodies as compared to other B.1.1.7 variants tested, indicating potential for immune evasion."

The research was funded by the German Ministry of Health, and the lead researcher was Buqing Yi, Ph.D., of the Institute of Medical Microbiology and Virology, Carl Gustav Carus Hospital.

Ironically, Austria's Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg threatened the unvaccinated with a lockdown if cases continue to rise, even though they are likely rising because the vaccine created viral immune escape. Like the prophets of Baal in the Bible, the more these countries vaccinate and face an even more virulent virus, the more they cry out to the same failed gods and blame everyone else for their failures. In reality, as top vaccinologists like Geert Vanden Bossche and Luc Montagnier warned, mass vaccination with a narrow-spectrum vaccine that produces suboptimal antibodies is an obvious candidate for vaccine-mediated viral immune escape.

Denmark, with nearly all adults vaccinated, many of them more recently, is experiencing a surge and is now seeking to reinstate vaccine passports. When will these people ever take responsibility for their own failures rather than instigating a blood libel against those who clearly have nothing to do with the spread?

Just consider the fact that the case rates are much higher in every age group over 30 in the U.K. among the vaccinated. In the case of 40- to 49-year-olds, the case rate is 2.3 times higher among the vaccinated!

In Singapore, they are now saying that the government will not cover the cost of medical care for those without the shots, even though nearly all adults in the country are vaccinated. Yet despite that fact, they now have the worst surge ever, averaging what would be the equivalent of 800 deaths a day in the U.S. And that is high for Singapore, given the population's excellent health status and low obesity rates. The fact that this is much worse than ever before – following universal vaccination – is a clear indictment of the vaccine, yet that is what happens in a global blood libel.

The scary implication of this reality of record cases post-vaccination and new mutants completely immune to vaccine antibodies is that we are now forcing a dangerous vaccine that only has risk and almost zero benefit. Take Austria, for example, where the vaccines clearly are not working. According to Fact Sheet Austria, which downloaded excess death data straight from the government's sources, there has been a 33% increase in excess deaths through week 40 of this year for 15- to 24-year-old males and a 21% increase in deaths for 25- to 34-year-olds. It makes no sense to blame those deaths on the virus, because the number of COVID deaths in those age cohorts accounted for just a handful of people. Also, excess deaths among females in that age cohort were down.

Clearly this is another disturbing signal about possible cardiovascular issues among younger males who get the shots. Which would also explain why so many young male athletes are suddenly dropping like flies.

If we continue to follow the path of a failed vaccine-only strategy to this pandemic, we will wind up with a ton of excess deaths and no treatment for COVID when the shots fail. The question now is which will be the first state to change course from Pfi$er's greedy and selfish strategy that succeeds in nothing but lining its own pockets.
