Science says it helps; nobody claims it's a magic wand or a get-out-of-jail-free card. It's about percentages. The vaccines aren't perfect, either - even the best only has about 95% effectiveness. Should they just forget about the vaccines, because they don't work 100% of the time?

You can be the world's most careful driver, and still die in a car accident if you are just in the wrong place at the wrong time, y'know? :idunno
So you should lock yourself in your house and never drive again

According to the WHO, in an "average" flu year, something between 250,000 and 500,000 (or, by another estimate, as many as 650,000) people die of flu every year. How is that the same as the 2.3 million deaths that have been racked up by Coronavirus so far? Do you really think they only consider people who were otherwise young and healthy, with no co-morbidities or other complications, when they count flu deaths?
Because the numbers have been inflated for the covid deaths, because they have not taken out the co-morbidities of all that have died "from Covid"......
I am done with the conversation. I know of a young guy who was drunk, wrapped his car around a tree and died in the hospital... but he had been confirmed positive and so he died of covid.... that is not the only one so I am tired of the whole BS.

@Beekissed that is a hugely informative referral.... I saved it into my bookmark... it keeps disappearing from your post but I did manage to catch it... and I wrote down the reference.
Hoping that since Parler is back up, that they will get it posted on there......

That's certainly where it belongs, with all the rest of the conspiracy theories. I only got about 3 minutes into it before I had to stop, but it's, what, 6 or 8 months old?

:rolleyes:

Rashid Buttar is an Osteopath with a long history of selling his own brand of "snake oil" treatments, which, while he hasn't been totally disbarred from practicing, has resulted in his being officially reprimanded for unprofessional conduct. If you want a poster child for "conspiracy theorist," you can't do better than him.:idunno

Has anyone seen the report by JOHN'S HOPKINS surgeon and researcher, that says we should pretty much have achieved "herd immunity" by April because so many more have had it than have been diagnosed and there have been very high titers of anti-bodies when the ones that have had it, have tested.... better than the results from the vaccine???
But I suppose the site Media ite and Fox News shouldn't be believed....

Like Faucci is better..... supporting the lab where the virus is from; kissing the a$$ of the chinese and all....
Which lab? A Chinese one, or an American one? Or just spin the wheel of conspiracy theories and see what comes up, since they go both ways?

There is no evidence that the virus is anything other than a natural occurrence, but of course, anyone steeped in conspiracy theories will refuse to believe that.

BTW, that's not a report from the Johns Hopkins surgeon, it's an op-ed piece - one man, voicing an opinion, which may or may not prove to be accurate. They've been saying all along that the numbers of infections are probably higher (maybe a lot higher) than the number of positive tests. Certainly, the number of positive cases is down, as are hospitalizations; there's no way that's just because of the vaccines. It's a positive sign, but it's not time to let our guard down yet (which is why more cautious experts aren't saying things like this).
