War is the realm of uncertainty; three quarters of the factors on which action in war is based are wrapped in a fog of greater or lesser uncertainty. A sensitive and discriminating judgment is called for; a skilled intelligence to scent out the truth. Carl von Clausewitz
This is the first of two posts on the Special Medical Operation to rollout the Pfizer COVID vaccine.
This Table appears in the first article reporting on the Pfizer Trial, with Fernando Polack as first author. A few weeks earlier, Albert Bourla, the Pfizer CEO, told the world the Pfizer vaccine was 95% effective. Effective here means if you have had the vaccine, you are less likely to have a lab confirmed test for symptoms of COVID. It does not mean that you will be saved from death or hospital and may not mean you won’t catch COVID.
While Pfizer (and other companies) claimed their vaccines worked extraordinarily well, Governments did not mandate the vaccines to defend people against getting a mostly mild infection, but to reduce transmission which they do not but above all to reduce COVID deaths and hospitalizations. We were told we needed to prevent admissions in order avoid our health services collapsing.
The Table shows 2 deaths on the Vaccine and 4 on Placebo. Not impressive but multiply it up by millions and maybe countries and politicians can claim there is a mandatable something there. The companies, especially Astra-Zeneca, showed us COVID deaths only, which is what everyone is interested in.
Pfizer also claimed variously that 5 placebo volunteers were hospitalized with COVID and none of the vaccinated. The figures vary with figures like 8 v 1 but also are quite low, unless multiplied by millions.
Pfizer is an honorable company. They are all honorable companies. So when reading the entries below remember to keep to the rules and do not link any problem to Comirnaty that happened after dose one and before seven days after dose two. Or any problem that happened more than four weeks after the seven day period is over. These do not get counted as being linked to the vaccine, even though all the ones below were in those who had the vaccine.
Any problems, especially hospitalizations of course can be multiplied by millions.
What about Argentine Case 12315520? Diagnosed with Ophthalmic vein thrombosis/ Venous thrombosis of the right eye, she was categorised as an Eye problem rather than thrombosis or cardiovascular problem. We don’t classify Deep Vein Thromboses under Leg – why put her in Eye?
With the extra cases below we have 50 cardiac SAEs in the Vaccine group and 38 in the placebo group. It would be great if someone could work through the placebo cases for us. Clicking on any of the links above will take you to the document with narratives for serious events happening on placebo and vaccine.
If you need our input, send us the links and we will be happy to review placebo hospitalization and death cases or other vaccine cases with you. There is some weird stuff there.
Do these narratives prove causality? For Pfizer and Barbara Bierer – see Harmatology – something like 45 to 29 would be a statistically significant difference. Until then, these accounts are anecdotes and tell us nothing – she claims.
But statistical comparisons tell us nothing about causality. All of the placebo cases were caused by something – they were not accidents. Equivalent figures in both groups do not prove there was no difference. An identical number of suicidal events can happen in 2 Zoloft trial groups if Zoloft both causes suicide in some and prevents it in others.
In Zoloft trials there was an excess of suicidal events and suicides on Zoloft but these alone are not statistically significant. Looking at the narratives there is a consistent pattern of the Zoloft induced ones happening with clear agitation beforehand, and where the dose is stopped the problem clears up.
A key detail is how often Pfizer didn’t let the subject have dose 2 of the vaccine where the event happened after dose 1. In two cases above they did let the subject go ahead but in most cases they didn’t. This is what Astra Zeneca did to Bri Dressen and Injuries in Vaccine Trials. It is a strong indicator of suspected and likely causality.
If you haven’t already read, see Michelle Mello’s story in Thinking Fast and Slow.
An oddity to take into account is that these 50 vaccinated narratives versus 38 or so on placebo are drawn from a group where US trial sites have double the number of sensitive narratives for placebo compared to vaccinated cases and global cases have a third more placebo cases – 288 v 199 vaccinated. [Pay no heed to this – but 50 from 199 compared to 38 from 288 is statistically significant at a p < 0.001 level].
Given they are not having cardiac events – what is happening to the 250 other placebo cases? Can you help us with this?
A final oddity is that only 170 of 44,000 people tested positive for COVID in the window starting 7 days post Dose 2 of the vaccine. These came from 66 of the 153 sites. Nearly 100 sites had no cases of COVID. Pfizer appear to have breached their own protocol and admitted people who had a longer than specified interval between dose 1 and dose 2 to meet their target case numbers. Statistics can cause people to fetish weird things. More to the point, its one rule for us and another for you.
What about this placebo case? Placebo Case 11671069 developed Congenital Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. He had two doses of placebo without problems but then developed a congenital (present from birth) cardiomyopathy two months after his second catchup Comirnaty dose.
He was 77 and never had a heart issue in his life. This case is classified as congenital because of an up till then undetected anomaly that had made no difference to him until he got the vaccine.
The way companies play these games he is classified as a placebo cardiac event – doubly hidden from prying eyes.
Also hidden from prying eyes was 11141050, a 63 year old woman who had a sudden cardiac death 6 weeks after dose 2. She has been put in the General Body Disorder category rather than Cardiac category.
We haven’t yet found the narrative on this lady but know her death meant she could be viewed as withdrawn.
Case 12461035 is another. A man hospitalized with chest pain and put on treatments for angina and gastric reflux was coded as General rather than Cardiac.
Case 10011093 had angina but was not coded under Cardiac. Instead he was coded under procedures – he had cardiac catherization for possible stent. The trial monitor reviewing the paperwork told the investigator this was inappropriate, likely never expecting the comment to see the light of day.
How do Fernando Polack’s 2 vaccinated deaths compared to 4 on placebo look now? According to the second paper on this trial (Thomas et al – NEJM March), when all events were looked at in more detail, only 1% of serious adverse events were viewed as related to the investigational agent. This fits with WHO Guidance to never link an adverse event to a vaccine if at all possible – see Harmatology.
It flies in the face of medical common sense.
