Mark Kilian and his wife Anneli were recently granted permission to enter the country from the US by the Australian Border Force and NSW Health. Mark’s father has terminal cancer and is on the verge of dying. Mark had arranged for a private charter plane to fly them from Sydney, where they landed from the US, to the Gold Coast, where Mark’s father is in hospital.
At the last minute, Queensland Health rejected their request for an exemption to leave hotel quarantine in Sydney, blocking them from entering Queensland.
As Mark stated, “the direct result of Queensland’s decision is denying me the right to say goodbye to my father. It strikes me as unbelievably cruel for this situation.” You would be hard-pressed to find someone who disagreed.
According to Queensland Health, “the public health risk with international travellers is significant and the risk of COVID-19 transmission to Queensland is high”.
The thing is both Mark and Anneli are fully vaccinated with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines respectively. The Pfizer vaccine is ‘meant’ to be 95% effective, and the Moderna vaccine 94% effective.
If the COVID-19 vaccine is as effective as the government claims it to be, what risk are Mark and Anneli posing to the Queensland community? Aren’t they protecting the community by being fully vaccinated? Isn’t this what the government has been saying all along? ‘Get vaccinated to protect yourself and your community’.
Unfortunately, Mark and Anneli are not alone.
Moe and Sarah Haidar returned to Australia last month from Qatar where they had been living and working. They were meant to fly to Melbourne, but unfortunately their flight was cancelled. Instead, they flew to Brisbane six weeks later. At the time, Sarah was heavily pregnant.
During her 30-week check-up, scans revealed complications and Sarah underwent an emergency caesarean section on the 1st of June. If this wasn’t traumatic enough, Moe and Sarah were separated from their baby and were only allowed to see him via video call.
According to Moe, “she went through the procedure and they took him instantly… She didn’t have seconds with him, not even a glimpse and she didn’t know what he looked like, they just took him.”
This is heartbreaking. What sort of a world are we living in when a parent cannot see their child after they give birth?
Once again, Queensland Health through Health Minister Yvette D’Ath and Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young denied the couples request for an exemption from hotel quarantine.
And once again, both Moe and Sarah were fully vaccinated prior to arriving in Australia.
If the young couple are fully vaccinated, and the vaccine is effective, why were Moe and Sarah denied access to their newborn son? Does the government know something that we don’t, or are they lying to us?
In a recent Senate Estimates, Senator Malcolm Roberts asked the following question to Secretary of the Department of Health Dr Brendan Murphy: “Many Australians have heard that getting vaccinated does not stop us from getting COVID, and that if we do get it we could still infect other people. Is that true?”
Dr Murphy answered with a simple “yes”.
The Australian Public Assessment Report for the Pfizer vaccine states that “vaccine efficacy against asymptomatic infection and viral transmission” has not yet been addressed, and that “a correlate of protection has yet to be established”.
The Prime Minister himself even claimed that there was not “considerable clinical evidence that tells us transmission is preventable”.
Yet, the government continues to claim that the vaccine is effective. If it was effective, why couldn’t a son see his dying father, or a couple see their new born baby?
If you search a little deeper, you will actually find that the vaccine isn’t that effective after all.
A recent study in the prestigious Lancet journal showed that the actual effectiveness is basically nothing. According to the study, “vaccine efficacy is generally reported as a relative risk reduction (RRR). It uses the relative risk (RR) – i.e., the ratio of attack rates with and without a vaccine – which is expressed as 1-RR.” Basically, it measures the vaccine group versus the placebo group.
The relative risk reduction of the Pfizer vaccine is 95%, and for the AstraZeneca vaccine it is 67%. These are the quoted efficacies of the two vaccines currently in use in Australia.
The study continues by stating that “although the RRR considers only participants who could benefit from the vaccine, the absolute risk reduction (ARR), which is the difference between attack rates with and without a vaccine, considers the whole population”. The absolute risk reduction is a far more accurate measure within society.
“ARRs tend to be ignored because they give a much less impressive effect size than RRRs.”
The absolute risk reduction of the Pfizer vaccine is 0.84%, whilst for AstraZeneca it is 1.3%. This is the actual effectiveness of the vaccines. Could you imagine the government trying to promote a vaccine with such a low efficacy?
What’s more, we have been told that the COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalisation and death. This is what the Lancet study had to say.
“These considerations on efficacy and effectiveness are based on studies measuring prevention of mild to moderate COVID-19 infection; they were not designed to conclude on prevention of hospitalisation, severe disease, or death, or on prevention of infection and transmission potential.”
There we have it. The vaccine does not provide immunity, it does not prevent transmission, it is not effective, and it does not prevent severe illness, hospitalisation and death.
Why is the government pushing a new, experimental and rushed to market vaccine that is still currently in the clinical trial phase with an efficacy of approximately 1% for a virus that has a 99.92% survival rate for those under the age of 60?
A son has been prevented from saying goodbye to his dying father, and a young couple have been denied access to their new born child.
The government does not have the right to do this. It is time to stand up. We must not allow this to continue. How many people have already been placed in this heart breaking position, and how many more will continue to be?
How would you feel if it was your mother or father, or your son or daughter?
