That is a fundamentally authoritarian position, but it’s also not grounded in solid science. We have a situation of imperfect vaccines. Of course, we rarely, if ever, have a perfect vaccine, but these are especially imperfect. They don’t provide us with very robust protection against infection, they don’t provide us with very robust protection against virus replication, and they don’t protect us from virus-shredding or spreading it to others.
So, the argument that one must get vaccinated in order to prevent further spreading is not valid. It doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.
There is much we still don’t know. But we absolutely do know that vaccinated persons who are infected can infect others. What we have here is a ‘noble lie.’ This concept comes from Plato: in politics, those in positions of authority may find it acceptable to speak untruths—lies—to the public for the sake of the common good.
The public have been told that if they all accept vaccination, herd immunity will be achieved, in which the virus will stop spreading, society can get back to normal, we can fix the economy, stop the lock-downs, end all threat of this virus … but only if everyone accepts the vaccine.
The problem with that logic is exposed by the Delta variant, with a baseline replication coefficient of between 5 and 8, whereas the Alpha strains were more in the 2 to 3 range. With the current vaccines that offer protection from infection at an efficiency of between 40 and 60 percent, we numerically cannot achieve herd immunity.
So, we are currently in a situation in which governments are pressurising their populations into accepting unknown risks for the sake of something that is not achievable.
Now, there’s a further problem with the logic of universal vaccination, and that is the problem that what we are in fact doing is virus-selecting through evolution. We are selecting for viruses to become more resistant to vaccines.
And there’s a problem that’s even worse. In certain veterinary models, there’s a chicken disease called Marek’s disease; if you vaccinate a flock of chickens as this virus is moving through their population, you can actively generate more highly pathogenic viruses that are far more infectious.
There are multiple examples that indicate that we are developing viruses in the human population that are derived from the Alpha strain; these new Delta strains, and others, are escaping the effects of the vaccine. This is likely to continue and become much worse if we have universal vaccination.
My argument, that I recently conveyed to Steve [Bannon]—and that Peter Navarro and I have put out in editorials—is that a more rational strategy (and more ethical and equitable) would be that of administering vaccines to those at highest risks, for whom it’s clear, despite adverse effects associated with the vaccine, the risks of death and disease from the virus are higher. Use the vaccine for those people.
For the majority of the population, use early drug interventions, so that they can develop natural immunity. We can protect people from hospitalisation, and all the costs and burdens associated with that, by providing means of early detection—self-diagnosis or home-diagnosis—with apps or computer-based tools that help people to assess their own personal risk.
Now that we’re moving towards vaccinating kids, we seem to be doing the very opposite of the strategy that you recommend.
The vaccination of kids is difficult to justify, in my opinion. Just speaking from the American data, since the beginning of the outbreak, we have had fewer than 400 deaths attributed to this virus among children. (In comparison, on average, we lose around 600 children a year from influenza.) Of those U.S. children—that is up to the age of 18—almost every one of them had a major pre-existing medical condition.
So, the average risk of death for children up to age 18 from COVID-19 in the United States is around 2 per million or even less, but the risks for a healthy child are even less than that. But the risk of the vaccine—this is important to understand—the one risk that we know, it is clear, is the risk of heart damage.
Particularly in young males, the risk of the vaccine for heart damage is significantly greater than the risk of death from the virus.
I hear people say, “we have to vaccinate children to protect the elderly.” But the elderly can be protected by accepting the vaccine. People do not realise that by trying to vaccinate the whole world, we create the enormous risk of generating escape mutant viruses that are completely resistant to any vaccine, because the vaccines we have are very narrow vaccines, only to one antigen.
Herd immunity is the protection afforded by natural immunity and is up to twenty times better in terms of protection from disease, than anything the vaccine can give us. If we pursue universal vaccination, we are reasonably likely to generate viruses that will overcome the vaccine protection in the very people who need it most, namely the elderly, the obese, and the immuno-compromised.
One of the chief tools that we have to protect those who are at high risk is this vaccine, imperfect as it is, and we’re throwing it away due to this naïve belief that we can achieve herd immunity, and get back to normal, if only everybody would take the vaccine. The data show that this cannot be achieved with these products.
My own organisation, Patriot Party Italia, recently put out a statement saying that Italy’s funding of the World Health Organisation (WHO) should be suspended until an independent investigation has looked into the WHO’s response to the COVID virus, specifically with regard to the WHO’s protection of China’s national interests. Is that a proposal that you think is feasible?
Suspending funding for the WHO? So here’s the problem. A similar argument could be made for other health organisations, even national public ones. They’ve been compromised by pharmaceutical interests—we use the term regulatory capture. What you’re talking about, though, is a different type of capture.
There are many that argue that the WHO has been captured and compromised by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and their financial interests. Bill Gates has spoken about how he has had over a twentyfold return on his vaccine company investments.
So, Gates, who has major investments in Moderna, Pfizer, etc., is not losing money on this pandemic, but rather making money on this pandemic. And he’s a major funder of the WHO. I think many people are now coming around to seeing that the WHO, as it currently exists, is not serving global interests effectively. And it has been compromised by other interests.
The question is, what do you do about it? An alternative response is, in my opinion, that a parallel organisation of sufficient robustness needs to be established, before we cease to fund the existing one. To stop funding, in the face of a pandemic, of the WHO, despite its many limitations, would be counterproductive.
Many are saying that there are different organisations trying to do this right now, and what’s needed is to build a parallel structure, mature it to the point that it can accept the responsibilities that have been vesting with WHO, and then migrate to this new structure that might provide a better service to the world and be less compromised by national or special interests.
In a new organisation, wouldn’t the regulatory capture start all over again?
That is the nature of human beings. They will attempt to exert their influence. In any case, I believe that an abrupt disbanding of the WHO, despite its limitations, in the face of a pandemic, would not serve the interests of the global community very well. The appointment of a new director could be a reasonable interim step while an alternative structure is developed.
The problem with building an alternative structure, of course, is who is going to do it? For instance, there were those who hoped that the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) would mature into something like that, but many think that CEPI has already been compromised.
There is an initiative, I hear, in the Rockefeller Foundation to try to do something like this; but the Rockefeller Foundation has its own financial interests. So, there are these operational practicalities of how to establish a foundation that reflects equitable, global interests, as opposed to more national or financial interests, whether it’s the World Economic Forum, or BlackRock Capital, or whatever.
That’s the fundamental tension that we have now as a world community, how do we come to terms with the fact that so much of global capital is controlled by a very, very small number of individuals. I think that is the fundamental tension of our world today.
Finally, Dr. Malone, how can people follow you and continue to benefit from your insights?
I have yet to be de-platformed from Twitter. So that’s @rwmalonemd. I have set up a Gab account, as a backup. I have a LinkedIn account, which is less useful these days, and we have our website: www.rwmalonemd.com. Also, there’s a new initiative being launched through a new portal which can be found at www.globalcovidsummit.org. That is designed to support both video and text in a way that will be difficult or impossible for large media and data centres to compromise.
