    Please note, this is not FDA approval. It’s an assertion that the FDA considers the disease more dangerous than the treatment MIGHT be, since they don’t know how dangerous it actually is. In truth, the vaccines being made available to the public is nothing more nor less than a Pharma experiment. The negative results of which Pharma is not liable for by law.
    All numbers for cases, positivity, hospitalizations, and deaths are the result of a flawed test that has not been used correctly. The test produces excessive false positives, making it useless if 35 or more cycles are used, while the CDC and the WHO recommended 40 all last year. Both changed their mind once Biden took office (curious is it not?) and recommended the 35 cycle limit be used, after which cases dramatically dropped. Current stats may be somewhat accurate, but totals including last years numbers are in error. A big error.
