    WHO Chief Scientist Served Legal Notice in India for Allegedly Suppressing Data on Drug to Treat COVID-19

    -Indian Bar Association has taken legal action against WHO Cheif Scientist for spreading disinformation on the use of Ivermectin to treat Covid19
    -it says Swarminathan in her statements ignored research and clinical trials who have presented solid data showing ivermectin prevents and treats Covid19
    -Ivermectin can treat all stages of Covid19 and reduce hospitalization and mortality rates due to its anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties, yet there is pushback in approving the drug's use as treatment by health authorities and WHO.
    -In their legal notice, the Indian Bar Association cited the case of 80-year-old Judith Smentkiewicz, who made a full recovery after being on a ventilator and told she only had a 20 percent chance of survival. Her family obtained a court order that allowed her to receive additional doses of ivermectin after doctors were hesitant to give her more than one dose

    ---> https://theflagreport.com/who-chief-...reat-covid-19/

    Hmmm, so Ivermectin has a high safety profile with more than 30 years of use with 3.7 billion doses. Similarily , HCQ has been used for 60 years, both are cheap and safe, but Big Pharma Pimps choose to push an experimental gene therapy on people with no data on long term side effects, and many have already died and had adverse health affects. They'll even push Remdesivir what is 1000x more expensive than HCQ and Ivermectin, yet which has shown no effect on mortality and minuscule benefit on recovery.

    Speaking of covid passports, they won't be needed if you're competing at the Calgary Stampede:

    https://calgarysun.com/news/local-ne...across-border/

    International professional rodeo participants along with some support staff and workers have been granted an exemption from international quarantine rules in order to attend the Calgary Stampede, Premier Jason Kenney announced Friday.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    And here I am with this nagging thought that *everything* is about to go down in quality.

    Assuming up to 10% of the population gets brain fog or some form of physical fatigue as a long symptom. How long is it before someone working on an assembly line forgets to put component A into slot B, or simply forgets to tighten hose clamp C on a 4,000 part combustion engine or is too tired to do a final inspection check.

    Its a good thing that the electric engine is here, because I don't trust a combustion engine with any sort of brain fog tech.

    Wonder how many places will just keep the masking going without a provincial law. Work has already made their decision on it. Sounds like we are keeping all restrictions for the foreseeable future. Possibly into the end of the year. Doesn't matter if your full vaxxed or not.

    It will put businesses in a tough spot for sure, how much business are they willing to gamble keeping restrictions around once health orders have been removed? Is a business really going to start actively turning away customers who don't need to carry a mask with them everywhere they go, especially when that customer can just walk down the street and shop at a competitor? Businesses in the south and north might feel this a bit sooner if Calgary decides that AHS data isn't sufficient and chooses to go with the advice of a lobby group instead. Why shop with mask or capacity restrictions in south Calgary when Okotoks is a quick drive away?

    Yeah, my employer as well.

    A little odd, but if we’re still following restrictions deep into fall and assuming we’re only 100 cases a day and have everything under control, that’ll be confusing.

    As soon as the mask restrictions are lifted, I am done in my business! That said, I will keep some on hand just in case someone comes in who is obviously worried about such things and I will accommodate them if they want me or staff to wear a mask, but it certainly is not a rule at that point.

    Mine is using no-masks as incentive to get vaccinated. They haven't officially announced it, but my boss told me when the province gets to 70%, anyone who's fully vaccinated will be allowed to be maskless at work.

    I think they're just looking into the legality of it before they announce. They don't want to have to waste money in a courtroom because some asshat says he's being punished for not getting a voluntary vaccine.

    92% of 60% on 2 dose means 50% of population is still at risk. Their 1st dose uptake is 80%. So the delay is probably to get 2nd dose number close to 80%.

    For AB, 96% (Pfizer) of 15% on 2 dose means 86% of pop is still at risk.


    And both are people who are eligible. If you count total population, the uncovered pop is even higher.

    And Lotto Vax is stupid. Everyone qualifies and you only need to fake that piece of paper they gave you on your shots to collect. Dumb. It will have minimal impact if they don't pull it from the AHS DB.

    If you feel like entering (also voluntary), go to https://alberta.ca/lottery.

    The purpose of the lottery is to counteract the dumb. So a dumb system is really just fighting fire with fire.

    Nope, that piece of paper and/or myhealth.alberta.ca are both legit from the 12:30pm news conference out of mouth of Shandro. That and along with proof of residency in AB and 18+ is all you need when you are picked to collect.

    $1M for 1st dose. Registration closes 1 week after hitting 70%. Winner announces when stage 3 opens.

    2x $1M for 2nd dose closer to late summer/fall, aug and sep.

    Winners of the Open for Summer Lottery will have their immunization status verified before they can be awarded their prize. For Albertans who have received their vaccine doses in Alberta, this vaccine status will be verified by Alberta Health. For winners who have received a vaccine dose outside of Alberta, they will be required to provide proof of their vaccine status and that the vaccine they have received is one is one of the following: Pfizer BioNTEch (BNT162b2/COMIRNATY Tozinameran (INN); AstraZeneca (AZD1222); Serum Institute of India PVT Ltd. (Covishield); Janssen (Ad26.COV2.S); Moderna (mRNA-1273); Sinopharm/BIBP (SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine (Vero Cell); or Sinovac (SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine (Vero Cell).
    Even better, just write a random note that you got Sinovac in China. How the hell are they going to prove that you didn't? lol.

    I would hope that whoever is in charge of verifying a million dollar prize actually verifies it. It shouldn’t take any longer than 5 minutes to validate against any health agency’s DB in Canada/us, and if someone pulls up a sinovac certificate from China they should call someone there and make sure it’s legit too.
