    PANDEMIC CRITICALLY CONSIDERED

    If I get vaccinated….
    – Can I stop wearing the mask?
    – Government: No
    – Can the restaurants, pubs, bars, etc. reopen and everyone work normally?
    – Government: No
    – Am I resistant to covid?
    – Government: Maybe, but we don’t know for sure…..
    – At least I am no longer contagious to others?
    – Government: No, you can still pass it on, possibly no one knows.
    – If we vaccinate all children, will school go on as normal?
    – Government: No
    – If I am vaccinated, can I stop social dissociation?
    – Government: No
    – If I am vaccinated, can I stop disinfecting my hands?
    – Government – No
    – If I vaccinate myself and my grandpa, can we hug?
    – Government: No
    – Will movie theaters, theaters and stadiums reopen thanks to vaccines?
    – Government: No
    – May the vaccinated be able to gather [events; parties].
    – Government: No
    – What is the real benefit of vaccination?
    – Government: The vaccine will not kill you.
    – Are you sure it won’t kill me?
    – Government: No
    – If statistically the virus won’t kill me anyway…. Why should I get vaccinated?”
    – Government: To protect others.
    – So if I get vaccinated, others are 100% sure I won’t infect them?
    – Government: No, we are not sure.

    So, to summarize: The COVID19 vaccine….

    – Does not give immunity.
    – Does not eliminate the virus.
    – Does not prevent death.
    – Doesn’t guarantee you won’t get it.
    – Doesn’t stop you from getting it.
    – Does not stop you from passing it on.
    – Doesn’t preclude the need for travel bans.
    – Doesn’t preclude the need for business closures.
    – Doesn’t preclude the need for closures.
    – doesn’t preclude the need for concealment.

    It is so absurd and I wonder why there are people who let this happen to them.

    Saying all that — I’m encouraging everyone to seek being vaccinated, but this entire pandemic has been a comedy of fools!

    Congratulations..., hermanito...

    From being a Shilean military man..., indoctrinated from an early age (as you just mentioned in another thread...:https://en.mercopress.com/2021/02/16/covid-19-argentina-s-death-toll-reached-50-327-on-monday/comments#comment515044) to blindly follow your military superiors complete stupid..., revolting and immoral orders like to distrust..., hate and kill your own kind..., race and religion only because they happen to live on the other side of an imaginary line...

    Or to arrest..., torture and sumarily kill your own kind..., that lives on your very own side of said imaginary line...

    You seem to have evolved into a remarkable human rights and liberties defender...

    Even now the health experts are predicting herd immunity to be achieved by mid-April and the latest Swedish mortality rates compared to the UK proves Sweden’s refusal to lock down their society was the CORRECT action.

    As I’ve mentioned — I’m RECOMMENDING everyone consider taking a COVID-19 immunization vaccine when it becomes available. That includes the Chinese Sinovac which is the most available here in Chile at no cost. (The Russian Sputnik in your country as well.)

    Despite testing positive with COVID antibodies — both Madame and I will seek Sinovac vaccination when we’re scheduled.

    (Chile has been highly successful in their program and our country has already vaccinated 2,670,139 with the first dose and 55,240 with the second dose.)

    All the approved vaccines are helpful in battling this pandemic!

    H O W E V E R

    What I’m pointing out is in the USA the CDC cannot explain the drop in flu cases from 400,000 last season to only 165 this season.

    What nobody in mainstream media and a handful of doctors are willing to acknowledge is the plain and straightforward answer: The flu didn’t disappear. It was merely misdiagnosed as COVID-19, sometimes intentionally and sometimes accidentally. Covid tests have been demonstrated to be inaccurate and the similarity to the flu and the common cold are enough to shift results. And if tests show Covid AND flu, then pretty much every doctor in America is going to label it as a Covid case.

    With all due respect for your Danish obstinance...

    I’m not denying the danger of our current pandemic — but it’s completely obvious the lockdowns were nearly useless. We obviously should have followed Sweden’s example — but it’s now accepted we’ll achieve herd immunity in a few months.

    Again — I’m recommending everyone consider taking a voluntary COVID-19 immunization vaccine when it becomes available.

    Although Madame and I will be vaccinated with the Sinovac vaccine — no person should be obligated by their government to take any vaccine.

    If you carefully read the article you kindly shared from the left-wing gringo FiveThirtyEight site — proves exactly what I’m saying. The world medical experts have been wrong!

    As you remember — Swedish death mortality rates are dropping at a rate better than the UK — but Sweden kept their society open while the UK imposed a lockdown. statistics.

    (The attached chart is startling clear.)

    The Center For Disease Control (CDC) cannot explain the drop in flu cases from 400,000 last season to 165 this season.

    The flu didn’t disappear. It was merely misdiagnosed as COVID-19, sometimes intentionally and sometimes accidentally.

    This insane lockdown lunacy has destroyed far more lives than what it has protected.

    The cure has been far worse than the virus itself!

    I suggest you receive a Canine Distemper/Parvo Bordetella and Rabies Vaccine at your earliest convenience.

    With all due respect to your typical Argentine habit of vilely manipulating statistics to reflect a warped reality of facts.

    Yes, although Scandinavia does have better results — Sweden has better overall statistics than the remainder of Europe.

    This while keeping their society reasonably open without a lockdown — while other countries sadly closed theirs.

    Or is it your obstinate Danish prejudice against the Swedes — blinds you from the attached chart?

    https://twitter.com/DrEliDavid/status/1362181460887826435?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1362181460887826435%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fsummit.news%2F2021%2F02%2F18%2Fno-lockdown-sweden-sees-covid-deaths-plummet-quicker-than-uk%2F

    Sometimes Argentines just have a difficulty accepting facts.

    Well in honest retrospect you do have a valid argument regarding vaccines as I reflect in the navy we were pincushions for ridiculous numbers if injections of who-knows-what and yes all our grandchildren and Dackel are required to have obligatory vaccinations.

    Small Pox was nearly eliminated by vaccination — but I understand because COVID is transmissible to other mammals — it’s probably going to be with us for a long time.

    This current pandemic has the people in many parts of the world frightened — and even Madame initially had reservations about the Chinese vaccine. I think it would be a mistake for the government to mandate obligatory vaccinations of a completely new type of vaccine.

    It’s good to think that you are not a bigot about your Swedish cousins. If only you were as open minded as my humble self and realize that pissing on an avocado tree is absorbed as precious urea.

    Your observation seems to ring true about the loss of liberty and freedom of not accepting the vaccine. Especially since I’m personally recommending people to do so.

    My argument is like that of an Argentine sailor realizing defeat and evoking the desperate battle cry: “Irse a pique antes que rendir el pabellón”

    “I am hurt, but I am not slain;
    I'll lay me down and bleed a-while,
    And then I'll rise and fight again”
