Ramping up fight against Covid, Dunleavy orders licenses for health care workers expedited to get more resources in hospitals

Governor Mike Dunleavy urged Alaskans to take immediate action on their own to combat the Covid-19 virus as the state remains in the “red zone,” at the highest alert level. The current statewide alert is over 450 cases per 100,000 people.

The Delta variant of Covid-19 is more contagious and spreading widely throughout the nation, including in Alaska. Dr. Anne Zink, the state’s chief medical officer, said 127 people are in the hospital with Covid-19, with 16 of them on ventilators. 13 percent of hospital stays are for Covid cases, she said.

She said the Delta virus moves quickly. One person can easily spread it to five people.

Because of this, it is highly likely that nearly everyone will be exposed to the virus, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services said on Thursday.

“We all have to choose if we want to be exposed to the virus with the protection of a vaccination or without – and we know the chance of getting infected and becoming severely ill, needing hospitalization or dying are significantly reduced for those who choose vaccination,” the department told Must Read Alaska.

The Dunleavy Administration is urging people get get vaccinated. 60 percent of Alaskans are already vaccinated.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the number of people who are set against getting a Covid-19 vaccine has remained relatively steady.

Governor Dunleavy directed the Department of Health and Social Services, Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, and the Department of Law to work with the hospitals to address the hospital capacity constraints.

These efforts include:

  • DCCED is expediting the process for licensed healthcare providers to work in licensed facilities. At the same time, DHSS is implementing an expedited background check process and waiver for licensed providers who are seeking to work in certain licensed facilities in Alaska, such as hospitals. This will aid in decreasing the time it takes to get new health care employees working in our communities.
  • This may mean that nurses and aides from overseas, particularly the Philippines, may be brought into the state to help staff hospitals, Must Read Alaska has learned. They would need to have their licensing fast-tracked. Other workers may be previously retired health care workers.
  • DHSS and DCCED are assessing General Services Administration staffing contracts to temporarily support hospitals. This will aid in increasing staffing levels in our hospitals to care for all patients.
  • DHSS and the Department of Law are evaluating the authorities in the public health order and seeking amendments as needed to support hospitals, including working with them on CMS 1135 waivers that allow for certain Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) flexibilities to expedite additional staffing at Alaska’s health care facilities. This would allow alternative care sites, urgent care sites and other areas of healthcare delivery to be more efficiently used to relieve pressure on the hospitals while still providing care.
  • DHSS is procuring medical supplies to support hospitals that are unable to purchase items due to supply chain constraints. The state can bulk purchase and share the resources with the hospitals as well as support movement of supplies and medications around the state as needed.

The state is also hearing about drug shortages, according to state officials, who are working on solutions, including bulk drug purchases.

“Hospitalizations are reaching critical levels of capacity and I have directed my administration to immediately address those needs,” said Governor Dunleavy. “To stop the surge of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety of our friends and families, I’m asking the entire state to work together to protect Alaska and Alaskans.”

  1. 13% of Hospital stays are Covid that is not an emergency. Stop yelling snake or its going to bite you. Say no to the experimental vaccine not enough is known about long term effects.

    • Thank you for pointing out the lack of long term data. Not to mention SARS-2 is a man made virus, and does not exist in animal reservoirs. It is not naturally occurring anywhere in animals. There are genetic sequences proving it was laboratory created. Therefore treating it with a first of a kind technology is also unknown. The patents for the vaccines were issued before the virus was released accidentally or purposefully. That alone speaks volumes.

    • I went to the Bartlett ER here in Juneau last Thursday night. I was the ONLY ONE in the waiting room. And I heard NO ONE else in the ER patient rooms. Nothing. Totally quiet. I can usually hear other patients and/or doctors/nurses talking in other rooms. But it was eerily silent.

      What is going on with hospitals telling the Dunleavy Administration that they are in crisis mode? I think he needs to go in and take a look for himself, order an audit or an investigation.

      Something smells fishy!

      • I am also hugely disappointed in Gov Dunleavy – pushing the vaccine. It’s our body our choice.
        Doctors should be treating people with early treatment drugs that are WORKING and people get better from Covid in just a few days. There are Doctors all over the world who are treating people successfully using Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, and others. It boggles my mind why these aren’t being recommended. It’s criminal actually. (Fire Fauci!)

        I will not, and my kids definitely will not, get the poisonous jab. No way!!

      • Just an observation…I’m pretty sure that most reasonable people would agree that using a reliable birth control method to prevent pregnancy is a better course than taking the “morning after pill”. Vaccination for Covid-19 clearly keeps people out of the hospital leaving beds and staff available for traumas and unpredictable illnesses. The vaccine is a proven method to prevent or at least shorten hospital stays due to complications from covid. Hospitals should not be considered a backup method for the unvaccinated.

  2. They really left a lot of questions more then answers. Maybe they should explain all these shortages instead of just saying their short on everything. I’m sure they have the answers to it’s probably a matter of admitting it. Thanks for trying Susan but it seems Sit Short doesn’t want to tell us anything more then “get the jab”.

  3. I will take action to safe guard my heath agiants covid. I won’t get a covid swab up my nose. I thinking there is something wrong with that stick.
    Me not sitting in a covid test line as so far worked for me, as well as not hanging out too close with anyone who has had a stick up their nose. Hahaha

  4. Has it occurred to anyone that now that we realize that you can still get Covid19 EVEN when vaccinated (hopefully little to no symptoms is now the selling feature), we currently have MORE people who are “sick” in public spreading it? Before the “magic” shot that lets you still get Covid, if you were sick you stayed home because you felt sick. Now you don’t have symptoms but can still spread it because… you went to work carefree!
    So, who is spreading this virus? Who might be unknowingly raising the numbers? Scapegoating the unvaccinated may just be misguided.
    Many of us have learned to bow to the mantra, “Her body, her choice.” I hope the same courtesy can be given to others at this time.

    • Finally someone gets it! Yep the vaccine isn’t a cure, it prevents the illness from becoming too bad in the vast majority of cases as opposed to the unvaccinated where when they get ill with covid it leads to more illness and death. If you don’t want covid stay home, it’s out there and circulating, maybe worse than before. Protect yourself or don’t.
      .
      I don’t go into bear country unprotected.
      .
      I protect my house and my property.
      .
      Why should my health be any different? I use the tools available to protect myself from my environment, some people don’t and they get eaten by bears or have their homes robbed.
      .
      Your body your choice, but if you get sick of covid…at this point it’s your choice.

      • Love it. We pay our own consequences. If you feel you gotta vaccinate your kids, then make sure you have made an educated decision.
        How many kids died of Covid in 2020? CDC data states that would be 54. Yes, 54. More than 1000 died of diarrhea. What percentage of adult deaths in the last 15 months was due to morbid obesity? 78%. Yes, almost all, and I didn’t even count people over 75. (That’s why we don’t hear about Covid deaths in Africa, btw).
        But again, we can make our own decisions to get eaten by bears too. Truly, the bigger decision is whether we protect freedom for all or support the rapid march to tyranny.

      • Vast majority of people who don’t get the “vaccine” will also be fine
        And just because you’re”vaccinated” is definitely not a guarantee that you will not get sick and or die about 5 days ago in Juneau 38% of confirmed c19 cases were “vaccinated” people. Why would a “Vaccinated” person get a c19 test unless they’re sick or in the hospital?

        • Vaccinated persons get tested if they’ve been traced to another with Covid (not just when they show symptoms).
          Did you not know that AK4? Ever notice that the less someone knows about a subject the more of an expert they tend to become??
          Heheh!

          • Covid is spiking worldwide in highly vaccinated populations. Math doesn’t lie. The vaccinated are the Delta variant they are driving the variant strains. Israel just confirmed it. Plus the study showed that the vaccinated carry a 261% higher viral load than the unvaccinated. So I just stay away from the walking lab rats since they are walking vector super spreaders. Vaccinated are not allowed in my home per doctors orders.

          • SM, I read the same article. A friend of mine had to let go 8 workers this week because they were vaccinated. He wanted to make sure his unvaccinated employees were safe from Covid-19 and its variants.

      • Yes, you don’t go into bear country unprotected. While the CDC, FDA, and social media are actively unloading our bear spray and our weapons to treat the illness. Have you listened to anyone that’s actually treating this? There’s so much more to this than just trying to prevent the virus. Treat the symptoms early. I protect my family with prophylaxes and the knowledge to get treated early if I do end up with the illness. There’s hope out there beyond an injection.

  5. This is a much better solution than some other states which are driving workers OUT of the healthcare industry by requiring them to get the Covid shots in order to keep their jobs.

    • There’s an opportunity to pick up some of the staff being shed in other states for refusing the vaccine. This is all insane – I think we can safely assume that nurses who have been working with COVID patients since the beginning of this thing have natural immunity.

    • Uh, read the news…..SEARHC has ‘voluntarily’ terminated employees who refuse to get the jab – I know this firsthand from one of the last holdouts who watched too many people have adverse reactions to be dumb enough to get this experimental gene therapy. Then there is the story from yesterday that COVID-19 vaccinations to be mandated for Bartlett Regional Hospital staff in Juneau.

      Contrary to your idea, I suspect these terminated folks will be finding jobs in other states that are smarter than ours.

  6. Why does he not encourage more people to take the vaccine? The vaccine basically guarantees that you will not go to the hospital. I don’t want my tax dollars going to ICU beds for people who refuse to take the vaccine. I am strongly against any mandates (mask or vaccine) for personal freedom reasons, but it is irresponsible for Dunleavy to cast doubt on the vaccines

    • Another one who gets it!
      .
      If you don’t want to protect your life then don’t burden the rest of us with your choices. If you get sick of covid…at this point it’s your choice. Protect yourself or deal with the consequences.

    • “The vaccine basically guarantees that you will not go to the hospital.”
      Back that up with data. In highly vaccinated populations hospitalizations and death rates are exploding. The unmentioned potential factor of very grave concern is these ineffective trial vaccines are causing ADE. If you don’t know what that is, research it, because it will be a major mass disaster.
      The vaccines are causing mutations that is known.

      • Brian,
        Can we agree one one word? It is not a ‘vaccine’. A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular infectious disease.
        .
        The covid shots does not do such thing other than changes the mRNA with spike proteins that works against your body not protect it.
        .
        Tick tok

        • The mRNA vaccines give instructions to your cells to print out harmless spike proteins, which the immune system then learns to attack. The dangerous part is the VIRUS not the spike protein. Do the research and don’t trust the herd mentality

          • Jon,
            In a nutshell, the covid shot will create a phenomenon called ADE… (if you don’t know what it is, look it up) cause mRNA to replicate creating chunks of protein (Spike protein). Will create chaos in those who got the jab that will destroy the lungs & deactivate the inflammatory antimacrophages & bring the virus inside the cell allowing it to replicate and cause death to many w/in a yr of getting the jab.

          • The COVID-19 pandemic necessitated the rapid production of vaccines aimed at the production of neutralizing antibodies against the COVID-19 spike protein required for the corona virus binding to target cells. The best well-known vaccines have utilized either mRNA or an adenovirus vector to direct human cells to produce the spike protein against which the body produces mostly neutralizing antibodies. However, recent reports have raised some skepticism as to the biologic actions of the spike protein and the types of antibodies produced. One paper reported that certain antibodies in the blood of infected patients appear to change the shape of the spike protein so as to make it more likely to bind to cells, while other papers showed that the spike protein by itself (without being part of the corona virus) can damage endothelial cells and disrupt the blood-brain barrier. These findings may be even more relevant to the pathogenesis of long-COVID syndrome that may affect as many as 50% of those infected with SARS-CoV-2. In COVID-19, a response to oxidative stress is required by increasing anti-oxidant enzymes. In this regard, it is known that polyphenols are natural anti-oxidants with multiple health effects. Hence, there are even more reasons to intervene with the use of anti-oxidant compounds, such as luteolin, in addition to available vaccines and anti-inflammatory drugs to prevent the harmful actions of the spike protein.

      • The data coming out of Israel and the UK would seem to suggest ADE is happening. And I’m really starting to think the numbers being reported by our own CDC are BS.

        • James,
          I am sure the #’s CDC has are not accurate.
          .
          Unfortunately my mom was talking into getting the jab by her cousin.
          .
          ADE has set in, attacking & breaking down red blood cells. It is a matter of time they will say she died from complications of interstitial lung disease. (Which he was diagnosed with about 3 years ago).

        • Stop spreading lies. I have old friends living in Israel. Not one word you write bears one scintilla of truth.

          • Sophie the all knowing, here you are piping off again with accusations. Reference the article I posted below from an Israel paper. Of course your friends in Israel know more than the reporter.

    • How is it irresponsible? There is plenty of evidence and expert advice that warn against taking the vaccine.
      .
      In a medical documentary Hold Up: Return of the Chaos, released in France on November 11, 2020, Montagnier rejected the then-upcoming vaccine against COVID, saying he will not be vaccinated. “My conscience tells me not to.”
      .
      (Veronika Kyrylenko – New American) Luc Montagnier, a French virologist and recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), has recently exposed the dangers of the COVID-19 vaccines. Montagnier discussed the issue in an interview with Pierre Barnérias of Hold-Up Media earlier this month, which was exclusively translated from French into English for RAIR Foundation USA….
      .
      The vaccines don’t stop the virus, argues the prominent virologist, they do the opposite — they “feed the virus,” and facilitate its development into stronger and more transmittable variants. These new virus variants will be more resistant to vaccination and may cause more health implications than their “original” versions.
      .
      Notice the date on here was prior to the delta variant.
      .
      A smart man would ask, what if the vaccines are creating the variants? What a vicious cycle that would be. Variant=booster=variant =booster.

      • Everyone knows you should only listen to experts who have a financial stake in the success of the vaccines.

      • Exactly right, James. Follow the money. Now several financial sites promote Pfizer/Moderna, pending mandatory boosters. Follwo the money and health be damned!

        • Of course! FOX is part of the corporate media, and is just as dishonest, disingenuous and propagandizing as all the other three-letter corporate media outlets. They are in fact worse, because they like to pretend that they are in opposition to the others, when in fact they merely act as controlled opposition.

        • Fox lost all legitimacy on November 3 when they declared Arizona for Biden BEFORE the votes were counted. If you’re not aware of what is really happening with the Arizona forensic audit (and you won’t be if you watch Fox), the amount of corruption uncovered in Maricopa county is unbelievable. That alone should be your tip off that Fox is not to be trusted.

          If you are sincere in wanting to get news, watch Steve Bannon’s War Room – available via his website, Rumble, and podcast apps. He has brought many very accredited doctors, including Dr. Malone the creator of the mRNA vaccine, on to talk about what is going on with this gene therapy. We are living through a time of truth suppression and mass brainwashing from almost every authoritative source – trust your common sense, if thing don’t make sense, it is likely because you are being lied to.

          • Why should I trust a random link on the internet over a true conservative news source (FOX) which I have trusted and exclusively watched since the Bush years? How do I know that these other “podcasts” are real, and not a “false flag” operation? Why do so-called “Trump supporters” in the comments hate the vaccine Trump himself invented to combat a virus released from Communist China to bring America to it’s knees? It’s all suspicious to me

    • Sadly reality tells a different story. There are a fairly large number of vaccinated individuals in the hospital with break-through Covid. The longer we see this virus, the more apparent it is that severe outcomes depend considerably more on patients overall health factors than vaccination status. While I am not certain, how your tax dollars are involved unless you have a Medicaid/Medicare patient, are you also unwilling to see them go to a vaccinated morbidly obese Covid patient in the ICU, whose poor nutritional choices put him there?

      • Every time an idiot chooses not to get the vaccine, and then checks into an emergency room, my tax dollars are being wasted. This is a soft form of socialism. People who choose to live a dangerous life should NOT be subsidized by smarter people!

        • Jon, You should really educate yourself about money and hospitals before you go spouting off looking like a fool. .
          .
          Emergency room visits don’t automatically become the burden of tax payers, unless they are on Medicare or Medicaid. Obamacare was designed to be a socialist system of medical coverage run by the government. However, that is not in full swing, thankfully, and still uses private insurance coverages.
          .
          You are either being ignorant or blind to not see that the number of vaccinated people who are ending up in the hospital are increasing. The vaccine is not performing as your almighty government and your almighty Fauci has promised. Numbers of 50% or more are being reported all over the world with increasing life threatening health risk caused by the vaccine as well.
          .
          You seem agitated and scared, so I’m assuming your vaccine hasn’t helped with your stress either. I sure hope you are right that it’s the cure and not poison coursing through your veins with a time clock.

          • My almighty Fauci? Give me a break, I hate fauci probably more than anyone else on this website. I am against any and all government mandates and I believe totally in personal liberty. I have not worn a mask once since March 2020. However I also believe fox news and President Trump’s encouragement of the vaccine. I don’t want people to be forced to get it, but I don’t want to pay for expensive treatments for anyone (Obamacare or not) who chooses not to get vaccinated.

            It’s pathetic. China developed and released this plague, then president Trump developed a powerful vaccine that basically shurs down the China plague. Then Americans who claim to support Trump decide to not get the vaccine, weakening their own country and opening it to a communist takeover. You are playing right into China’s hands

          • Jon, calling yourself a Trump supporter doesn’t mean that you have to support everything he says or does. Warp Speed might be the program you believe is his miracle life saver, but I am certain Trump had little to do with it other than parrot what he was told to say by the CDC, while they let him believe this all was his great achievement. The CDC used Trump to influence his followers to get the Vaccine. No vaccine has ever been created in 9 months, miracle or not. A more likely scenario is the CDC, NIH and China were researching (screwing with Mother Nature) in order to develop a contagion and at the same time develop a vaccine to counter it or something more nefarious. Trump only knew what he was told.
            .
            Do more research Jon, instead of believing the government, no matter who is in charge. A wise man questions everything.
            .
            As Ronald Reagan said, “ the most frightening words in the English language are, I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.”
            .
            Read the article I posted about spike protein farther down the page. The vaccine breakthroughs are about 50% of hospitalizations now, over 60% in Israel.

  7. Has a specimen been isolated from any of the tissues of those affected, identified and preserved, to show scientifically in court in this state to authenticate and prove its existence? That’s the science, proof and evidence.

  8. Why is it called mRNA “therapy”. The words gene therapy and vaccine are spelled differently and are not bio-identical things are they. They don’t work the same. Are medical misnomers ok? Lack of precise terms and meanings can destroy the quality of experimental studies. To spend so much for imprecision seems out of touch with current professional standards post Nurenberg 1947 – until now. I wonder what gives.

  9. How many of those opposed to vaccinations because they feel their freedoms and liberties are being trampled upon feel they have a right to healthcare and can’t be denied it?
    .
    Darwin coined the term survival of the fittest, of course some people don’t believe in such things…

    • Steve-O would fittest include cerebral ability? Could critical thinking make one more fit then say a blind follower of half baked propaganda? Just wondering Steve-O

    • It has nothing to do with that. The vaccines are still experimental and will remain so until long-term studies are complete, regardless of FDA “approval”. There are too many in the medical community that are raising serious questions and concerns about the vaccines and the course of action currently being taken, although their voices are stifled and censored. The Biden administration’s mantra is “obey and submit”. But their motivations are politically driven, and are not based on the totality of the medical and scientific data and evidence available, rather it’s based on what’s politically expedient, and damn the long term consequences.

    • Of course it was not Darwin that coined that term and that’s because he didn’t believe it.
      Some continue to use it because they don’t understand what it is that allows certain species to survive.

    • I don’t believe that I, nor anyone else, has a “right” to medical services. Medical services are products which have prices, and those in need of said products and with an ability to pay have no more or less “right” to them than someone has the “right” to go into a grocery store and buy a loaf of bread. Furthermore, as we have seen from the case of the woman whose doctor is denying her life-sustaining treatments due to her refusal to get the Covid injection, doctors have just as much a right to refuse service as the grocery store.

      I’m not sure if you are suggesting that people who don’t get the Covid injection shouldn’t be able to access medical care, but if you believe that you must believe the same about people who smoke, drink alcohol, ride motorcycles, ski, rock climb, eat donuts or engage in any number of other behaviors that are well known to be hazardous to one’s health.

      • I agree Ak Pilot. Medical coverage is not a right. Bleeding hearts who believe in the nanny state have created a utopian idea that the government will give them free supreme medical coverage. Instead we have created medical coverage with a middle man that has forced the prices to sky rocket. But they aren’t through. Now they want to replace the current middle man (insurance companies) with a new middle man, the government. And look how well they have managed the people’s money and the broke Medicare and Medicaid systems. It’s just certain you are going to get the very best medical care possible. And with the Big Pharma on the scene with their new found riches
        of world vaccine domination, what more could go wrong? I think doctors are going to be refusing much more than unvaccinated people in the near future. What’s going on now is just setting a precedence.

    • Yes typically people who are fit (and those who are not)will not suffer much from covid “vaccinated” or not

  10. Gosh, maybe he should prohibit vaccine requirements so that lots of HCP can keep their jobs! Let’s bring in low paid foreigners to do the jobs Alaskans are being fired from. Yeah, that makes sense. I hear 300 at ANMC alone.

  11. “we know the chance of getting infected and becoming severely ill, needing hospitalization or dying are significantly reduced for those who choose vaccination,”
    DHSS needs to show the data validating this claim. Define who “those” are.
    25 year olds have same risk as obese 75 year olds?
    Also show data on number who have died from or suffered severe side effects from these vaccines.
    And why in populations with very high “vaccinated” percentage rates are people becoming ill and dying at alarming rates.
    Also disclose the dollar amounts the agency is receiving for Covid related issues, what surcharges are hospitals receiving, as is known for Medicaid and Medicare for treating anyone deemed as Covid positive.
    Finally validate that the PCR test thresholds being used are accurate. Whatever happened to influenza A and B? They disappeared, vanished.
    Enough of unsubstantiated statemets without data.

    • PCR test has been officially recalled due to too many false positives. BUT THEY ARE ALLOWING IT TO STILL BE USED UNTIL DEC.31st to inflate numbers.

  12. I see Anne Zink still has a terminal case of Fauxicitis. Anne, I don’t believe one word out of your mouth. Your continual over priviledged behavior and elitist uncaring comments along with never offering one shred of hard evidence or proof to your “statements” that can be verified independently tells me you are nothing but a state sanctioned liar.

  13. I know for a fact of several ladies whom WERE pregnant. Both took the covid shot. Both ladies lost their babies labeled as ‘miscarriage’. Does that get factored in with studies that the covid shot benefits you?
    .
    How about many who developed blood clots? Or children who developed heart failure and died? Did they have health issues prior to receiving the jab? Did they develop health ailments after receiving the jab?
    .
    There are so many health personnel who stay silent for 1 reason…. give me the $ baby…
    .
    Of course they stay silent because the CDC, WHO is their bread & butter. You possibly can not cut the hand that feeds you, right?
    .
    The PCR testing swabs are saturated with ethylene oxide (EO). It is a cancer causing substances! I’m sure the PCR cycles are elevated as well to give a false positive… QUIT GETTING TESTED!
    .
    Tick Tok

    • Amy,
      You are correct, these injections are not vaccines, the data points to the serious consequences of the spike proteins, which have killed 40,000+ known victims, and the long term damage is unknown. Young men are subject to heart conditions, my best friend died from clotting in his lungs after the injection. He was very healthy 50 years old. The PCR threshold cycles used do not differentiate between SARS-2 and influenzas, false positives are common. Our in laws took 2 injections each and then spread the virus to our daughter, son in law and their 4 children in Nome. The children were asymptomatic, the parents mildly sick for three days, the grandparents who were “vaxxed” were ill seriously for two weeks. Norton Sound forced all medical employees to quit who refused the unknown toxic shots. Now these medical facilities, compromised by working for big pharma for their money are understaffed. The Governor must ban employers from forcing the use of injections.

      • Those who were forced to quit… (or fired) should have a lawsuit on their [email protected]@.
        .
        Norton Sound violated the Nuremberg Code.
        .
        I’m sorry to hear about your best friend, your daughter and her family.
        .
        Many where I live took the jab as it is being pushed hard with disinformation along side fear mongering. From what I also heard from a source in the health field, it is affecting the young people in a bad way who took the jab.

      • Lol, you think spike proteins are dangerous? Is it because they are called “spikes” and that sounds scary to you? The Chinese CoronaVirus is the problem, not the tiny pieces protruding from the center

        • Please tell me you got the jab and plan to get as many boosters as they will allow. It will make me feel much better about the future of humanity.

        • Vaccine researcher admits ‘big mistake,’ says spike protein is dangerous ‘toxin’

          ‘Terrifying’ new research finds vaccine spike protein unexpectedly in bloodstream. The protein is linked to blood clots, heart and brain damage, and potential risks to nursing babies and fertility.
          May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — New research shows that the coronavirus spike protein from COVID-19 vaccination unexpectedly enters the bloodstream, which is a plausible explanation for thousands of reported side-effects from blood clots and heart disease to brain damage and reproductive issues, a Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week. “We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now,” said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario, in an interviewwith Alex Pierson last Thursday, in which he warned listeners that his message was “scary.”
          “We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, we never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein. So by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin,” Bridle said on the show, which is not easily found in a Google search but went viral on the internet this weekend.

          Bridle, a vaccine researcher who was awarded a $230,000 government grant last year for research on COVID vaccine development, said that he and a group of international scientists filed a request for information from the Japanese regulatory agency to get access to what’s called the “biodistribution study.”

          “It’s the first time ever scientists have been privy to seeing where these messenger RNA [mRNA] vaccines go after vaccination,” said Bridle. “Is it a safe assumption that it stays in the shoulder muscle? The short answer is: absolutely not. It’s very disconcerting.”

          Vaccine researchers had assumed that novel mRNA COVID vaccines would behave like “traditional” vaccines and the vaccine spike protein — responsible for infection and its most severe symptoms — would remain mostly in the vaccination site at the shoulder muscle. Instead, the Japanese data showed that the infamous spike protein of the coronavirus gets into the blood where it circulates for several days post-vaccination and then accumulated in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands, and in “quite high concentrations” in the ovaries.

          “We have known for a long time that the spike protein is a pathogenic protein. It is a toxin. It can cause damage in our body if it gets into circulation,” Bridle said.

          The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is what allows it to infect human cells. Vaccine manufacturers chose to target the unique protein, making cells in the vaccinated person manufacture the protein which would then, in theory, evoke an immune response to the protein, preventing it from infecting cells.

          A large number of studies has shown that the most severe effects of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, such as blood clotting and bleeding, are due to the effects of the spike protein of the virus itself

          “What has been discovered by the scientific community is the spike protein on its own is almost entirely responsible for the damage to the cardiovascular system, if it gets into circulation,” Bridle told listeners.

          Lab animals injected with purified spike protein into their bloodstream developed cardiovascular problems, and the spike protein was also demonstrated to cross the blood brain barrier and cause damage to the brain.

          A grave mistake, according to Bridle, was the belief that the spike protein would not escape into the blood circulation. “Now, we have clear-cut evidence that the vaccines that make the cells in our deltoid muscles manufacture this protein — that the vaccine itself, plus the protein — gets into blood circulation,” he said.

          Bridle cited the recent study which detected SARS-CoV-2 protein in the blood plasma of 11 of 13 young healthcare workers that had received Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine, including three with detectable levels of spike protein. A ‘subunit’ protein called S1, part of the spike protein, was also detected. Spike protein was detected an average of 15 days after the first injection. One patient had spike protein detectable on day 29, one day after an injection, which disappeared two days later.

          Effects on heart and brain

          Once in circulation, the spike protein can attach to specific ACE2 receptors that are on blood platelets and the cells that line blood vessels. “When that happens it can do one of two things: it can either cause platelets to clump, and that can lead to clotting. That’s exactly why we’ve been seeing clotting disorders associated with these vaccines. It can also lead to bleeding.” Bridle also said the spike protein in circulation would explain recently reported heart problems in youths who had received the shots.

          “The results of this leaked Pfizer study tracing the biodistribution of the vaccine mRNA are not surprising, but the implications are terrifying,” Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told LifeSiteNews. “It is now clear” that vaccine content is being delivered to the spleen and the glands, including the ovaries and the adrenal glands. “The released spike protein is being shed into the medium and then eventually reaches the bloodstream causing systemic damage. ACE2 receptors are common in the heart and brain, and this is how the spike protein causes cardiovascular and cognitive problems,” Seneff said.

          The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently announced it was studying reports of “mild” heart conditions following COVID-19 vaccination, and last week 18 teenagers in the state of Connecticut alone were hospitalized for heart problems that developed shortly after they took COVID-19 vaccines.

          AstraZeneca’s vaccine was halted in a number of countries and is no longer recommended for younger people because of its link to life-threatening and fatal blood clots, but mRNA COVID vaccines have been linked to hundreds of reports of blood clotting events as well.

          FDA warned of spike protein danger

          Pediatric rheumatologist J. Patrick Whelan had warned a vaccine advisory committee of the Food and Drug Administration of the potential for the spike protein in COVID vaccines to cause microvascular damage causing damage to the liver, heart, and brain in “ways that were not assessed in the safety trials.”

          While Whelan did not dispute the value of a coronavirus vaccine that worked to stop transmission of the disease (which no COVID vaccine in circulation has been demonstrated to do), he said, “it would be vastly worse if hundreds of millions of people were to suffer long-lasting or even permanent damage to their brain or heart microvasculature as a result of failing to appreciate in the short-term an unintended effect of full-length spike protein-based vaccines on other organs.”

          Vaccine-associated spike protein in blood circulation could explain myriad reported adverse events from COVID vaccines, including the 4,000 deaths to date, and nearly 15,000 hospitalizations, reported to the U.S. government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) as of May 21, 2021. Because it is a passive reporting system, these reports are likely only the tip of an iceberg of adverse events since a Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare study found that less than one percent of side-effects that physicians should report in patients following vaccination are in fact reported to VAERS.

          Nursing babies, children and youths, frail, most at risk

          Bridle said the discovery of vaccine-induced spike protein in blood circulation would have implications for blood donation programs. “We don’t want transfer of these pathogenic spike proteins to fragile patients who are being transfused with that blood,” he said.

          The vaccine scientist also said the findings suggested that nursing babies whose mothers had been vaccinated were at risk of getting COVID spike proteins from her breast milk.

          Bridle said that “any proteins in the blood will get concentrated in breast milk,” and “we have found evidence of suckling infants experiencing bleeding disorders in the gastrointestinal tract” in VAERS.

          Although Bridle did not cite it, one VAERS report describes a five-month-old breastfed infant whose mother received a second dose of Pfizer’s vaccine in March. The following day, the baby developed a rash and became “inconsolable,” refused to nurse, and developed a fever. The report says the baby was hospitalized with a diagnosis of Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, a rare blood disorder in which blood clots form in small blood vessels throughout the body. The baby died.

          The new research also has “serious implications for people for whom SARS Coronavirus 2 is not a high risk pathogen, and that includes all of our children.”

          Effect on fertility and pregnancy?

          The high concentration of spike protein found in testes and ovaries in the secret Pfizer data released by the Japanese agency raises questions, too. “Will we be rendering young people infertile?” Bridle asked.

          There have been thousands of reports of menstrual disorders by women who had taken a COVID-19 shot, and hundreds of reports of miscarriage in vaccinated pregnant women, as well as of disorders of reproductive organs in men.

          Vicious smear campaign

          In response to a request, Bridle emailed a statement to LifeSiteNews on Monday morning, stating that since the radio interview he had received hundreds of positive emails. He added, too, that “a vicious smear campaign has been initiated against me. This included the creation of a libelous website using my domain name.”

          “Such are the times that an academic public servant can no longer answer people’s legitimate questions with honesty and based on science without fear of being harassed and intimidated,” Brindle wrote. “However, it is not in my nature to allow scientific facts to be hidden from the public.”

          He attached a brief report outlining the key scientific evidence supporting what he said in the interview. It was written with his colleagues in the Canadian COVID Care Alliance (CCCA) — a group of independent Canadian doctors, scientists, and professionals whose declared aim is “to provide top quality, evidence-based information about COVID-19, intent on reducing hospitalizations and saving more lives.”

          A focus of the statement was the risk to children and teens who are the target of the latest vaccine marketing strategies, including in Canada.

          As of May 28, 2021, there have been 259,308 confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 infections in Canadians 19 years and under. Of these, 0.048% were hospitalized, but only 0.004% died, according to the CCCA statement. “Seasonal influenza is associated with more severe illness than COVID-19.”

          Given the small number of young research subjects in Pfizer’s vaccine trials and the limited duration of clinical trials, the CCCA said questions about the spike protein and another vaccine protein must be answered before children and teens are vaccinated, including whether the vaccine spike protein crosses the blood-brain barrier, whether the vaccine spike protein interferes with semen production or ovulation, and whether the vaccine spike protein crosses the placenta and impacts a developing baby or is in breast milk.

          LifeSiteNews sent the Public Health Agency of Canada the statement of CCCA and asked for a response to Bridle’s concerns. The agency responded that it was working on the questions but did not send answers before publication time.

          Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson did not respond to questions about Bridle’s concerns. Pfizer did not respond to questions about how long the company was aware of its research data that the Japanese agency had released, showing spike protein in organs and tissue of vaccinated individuals.

  14. Published by Report 24

    15 August 2021
    .
    There are worrying facts that Professor Retsef Levi of the Sloan School of Management at the world-famous MIT in Massachusetts (USA) announced – based on a recently published Israeli study . As a result of the Covid vaccinations in Israel (60 percent of the population there is already fully vaccinated, over 80 percent once), there are more and more serious consequences and damage with clinical or even intensive care relevance.
    .
    For example, a 25 percent increase in cardiac arrest and heart attack cases was registered among 16-29-year-olds vaccinated. Heart attacks increased by as much as 83.6 percent in vaccinated women in the age group 20-29 years. According to the study cited by Levi, this increase is “clearly related” to the vaccination campaign. Collateral damage and “side effects” accepted by the corona policy are a focus of work for the MIT medical statistician Levi, who is regarded as an international capacity in this regard.
    .
    Among other things, he researched the increase in cardiovascular diseases as a result of missing or avoided emergency treatment during the first lockdown and published the shocking results in his study ” Evidence of Worse Outcomes Related to Cardiac Arrest during the COVID-19 Pandemic due to.” Patient Reluctance to Seek Care (2020)”.
    .
    Israel, which “went from vaccination world champion to incidence world champion”, as even the public broadcaster ZDF commented, had mainly inoculated Comirnaty from Biontech / Pfizer. In the meantime, people are trying to escape to the front – and have already started the third vaccination . That the supposed solution is in truth the problem and that the cause is once again confused with the effect: it does not seem to bother anyone seriously – just like with the other western governments that are part of the pharmaceutical industry. (DM)

  15. If you quit your job just because of you can’t handle an increased workload, you didn’t like the job from the first day, and you were working for the good pay and benefits.
    Any medical staff quitting because they got stressed is good thing. The medical job is a service related field, and you gotta love people more than money.

  16. We have high rates of COVID because we have an all out media blitz, 24/7. It’s all we hear, fires in California? Deaths in Afghanistan? None in the MSM, its COVID and nothing else. They have to keep the testing blitz up to keep case numbers high, how many false positives is anyone’s guess. The best defense is immunity with antibodies. I have this and feel great, no loss of sleep for me.

  17. 450/100,000 = 0.45% of the statewide population infected
    127/100,000 = 0.13% of the population hospitalized
    16/100,000 = 0.016% of the population on ventilators
    .
    Panic everyone and do what the government tells you or we’re all going to die!!!
    .
    Now, I want the numbers on how many of those people have been “vaccinated” with the untested, experimental gene therapy drug.
    .
    I also want to know if any of those hospitalized cases are being treated with therapeutics and when treatment began.
    .
    I also want an age and comorbidity breakdown for the hospitalized cases.
    .
    Putting up some unimpressive numbers and telling us that we’re all going to get infected tells us almost nothing useful.

    • That is the number I want to see. The ones they don’t want us to see. What happen to the flu and cold deaths? Where are the real adverse effected numbers? What about the 80% increase in heart attacks in Israel ages 20-30 who have been vaccinated? What about this spike protein in the vaccine that is causing internal bleeding leading to hundreds or more dying? And much, much more. All silenced.

      • The latest study of 800,000 people, which is large enough to be meaningful, from the Maccabi Healthcare and Tel Aviv University found:
        People who have taken both doses of the Pfizer jab are 13 times more likely to have a breakthrough infection, and are even at a “greater risk for Covid-19 hospitalizations” than the unvaccinated. Along with a 27 times more likely to experience serious symptoms.
        The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine won’t just make people more likely to catch new variants – they will also be more affected by symptoms and more likely to end up hospitalized.
        Maybe we should look at making treatment and hospitalization the personal responsibility of those who chose to use their bodies as lab rats and help the pharma industrial complex and their bought off Governors and “health ” agencies to create panic and mass neurotic behavior ?

    • The majority of hospitalizations in Anchorage are 70 yrs+, have comorbidities and are vaccinated. (family of RN’s)

      • Yep I know of several vaccinated people who are either dead from the vaccine, or currently hospitalized on ventilators, or suffering from severe adverse reactions from the shots. And I know lots of Nurses in Anchorage and in the valley that confirm what you are saying. I also know that a lot of these nurses are prepared to quit if they are forced to take these shots so that is only going to worsen the health care shortages. They are also seeing severe adverse reactions in the vaccinated and suspect that those who took the vaccine that are feeling fine had a placebo (because we all know this clinical drug trail and therefore there is a control group). The vaccine trials are making everything worse. If you look at the data worldwide, Covid spikes and hospitalizations are happening in heavily vaccinated populations. Also they are cooking the numbers by skewing the definition of what it means to be vaccinated. They are counting those that have just one shot as unvaccinated and those who have taken two shots within a recent time frame of becoming infected as unvaccinated, so they can make it look like the unvaccinated are the only ones getting severely ill. But these walking lab rats will scream take your shot because cognitive dissonance is real. FYI it is never going back to normal the pharmaceutical companies will use fear and lobbyists to inject you until you are dead, and profit from it all the way to the bank.

  18. We are continually forced to live in confused seas – very dangerous and unpredictable. Too much stress. Stress and fear lowers immunities.

    Reading the comments here leads to the conclusion and reality of how unstable this virus is. It is obvious that a logically thinking person would question anything and everything out there about the virus COVID-19++++.
    And why not?
    We are constantly bombarded with government information (i.e. science), sold as reality, which is laced with lies, twists, spins and a the constantly (since this began) moving of goal posts to accommodate the science of the moment.
    Thought: for vaccinated people.
    Are we really all that confident with the bill of goods sold to us that we are now more protected from the sick and its variants?
    Is that why we are still encouraged to fearfully mask up, avoid crowds, think of taking boosters and live life anticipating worst case scenarios.
    What relief has the jab gotten us, in reality?

    Here are some more reliable personal responsible choices to be made:
    Stop relying on the Government.
    Be healthy, as much as you can for your personal situation, in mind, body and spirit.

    Reality: We are only on the planet for a very short time.
    Get right and live life the best you can, one day at a time.
    You are on a journey.
    Money and the material stuff people obsess about cannot be taken on the unavoidable trip off the planet. Stop fearing that journey.
    Suggested action: Pack all the best (hint: non material) luggage you can for that trip. You won’t regret it.

  19. How about giving them a better treatment regimen. They’re treating with ventilators and a waning injection. Time to get rid of the current minister of health propaganda and get a second opinion.

    • Thank you!
      It appears that the FDA has put all its energy in approving vaccines, while ignoring the search for alternative medications with potential therapeutic effect to treat or prevent. Normally we have a multi-pronged approach, looking at anti-virals, anti-inflammatory and many other existing medications to see if they have an effect on the disease process. Somehow in this case those avenues are being mocked and ridiculed. I read that practitioners are told they can not use other meds “off label”. More and more one gets the impression that the effort is to perpetuate the pandemic than relief suffering and assist healing.

  20. There is fairly reliable Covid data that indicates what happens in Western Europe will happen in the United States several weeks later. The UK peaked in Covid cases a few weeks ago with hospitalizations approaching 50% of vaccinated patients. We are approaching the same levels as more folks are taking the experimental shot. It is incredible that folks have such short memories . In 2009 Phizer had the dubious distinction of being the pharmaceutical company with the largest FDA fine in history – over 2 billion dollars – for bribing doctors & falsifying clinical trial results for one of its drugs, And now we are supposed to trust them?

  21. Multiple reports and studies have shown evidence that Ivermectin is effective in combatting illness associated with COVID-19, and in some countries, like India, it is recommended for use even though the World Health Organization does not recommend it.

    Dr. Ozaki cited evidence from African nations that have utilized Ivermectin during the pandemic. He stated: “In Africa, if we compare countries distributing Ivermectin once a year with countries who do not give Ivermectin… they don’t give Ivermectin to prevent COVID but to prevent parasitic disease… if we look at COVID numbers in countries that give Ivermectin, the number of cases is 134.4/100,000 and the number of deaths is 2.2/100,000.”

    In 2019, Japan’s death rate from influenza amounted to 2.9 death cases per 100,000 inhabitants

  22. Do some research into ivermectin…it’s a lot more than just a treatment for horses and scientists are still finding new uses for it in humans.
    I know that dumb people will just parrot what they hear on MSM about ivermectin but that’s fine because Covid appears to be exerting a new environmental pressure on the human population that is increasing our collective average IQ by eliminating many stupid people.
    They can revile in their perceived intellectual superiority as they gasp their last few ventilator assisted breaths.
    On a positive note this is going to hit the pro-Biden crowd particularly hard.
    .
    Antiviral (e.g. HIV, dengue, encephalitis)
    Recent research has confounded the belief, held for most of the past 40 years, that ivermectin was devoid of any antiviral characteristics. Ivermectin has been found to potently inhibit replication of the yellow fever virus, with EC50 values in the sub-nanomolar range. It also inhibits replication in several other flaviviruses, including dengue, Japanese encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis, probably by targeting non-structural 3 helicase activity. Ivermectin inhibits dengue viruses and interrupts virus replication, bestowing protection against infection with all distinct virus serotypes, and has unexplored potential as a dengue antiviral.

    Ivermectin has also been demonstrated to be a potent broad-spectrum specific inhibitor of importin α/β-mediated nuclear transport and demonstrates antiviral activity against several RNA viruses by blocking the nuclear trafficking of viral proteins. It has been shown to have potent antiviral action against HIV-1 and dengue viruses, both of which are dependent on the importin protein superfamily for several key cellular processes. Ivermectin may be of import in disrupting HIV-1 integrase in HIV-1 as well as NS-5 (non-structural protein 5) polymerase in dengue viruses.

    Antibacterial (tuberculosis and Buruli ulcer)
    Up until recently, avermectins were also believed to lack antibacterial activity. However, in 2012, reports emerged that ivermectin was capable of preventing infection of epithelial cells by the bacterial pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis, and to do so at doses that could be used to counter sexually transmitted or ocular infections. In 2013, researchers confirmed that ivermectin was bactericidal against a range of mycobacterial organisms, including multidrug resistant and extensively drug-resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the authors suggesting that ivermectin could be re-purposed for tuberculosis treatment. Although other researchers found that ivermectin does not possess anti-tuberculosis activity, the results were later shown to be non-comparable due to differences in testing methods, with the original findings being confirmed by further work in Japan. Unfortunately, the potential use of ivermectin for tuberculosis treatment is doubtful due to possible neurotoxicity at high dosage levels. Ivermectin was also reported to be bactericidal against M. ulcerans, although other researchers found no significant activity against this bacterium.

  23. Then in October, Marik came across studies from Latin America demonstrating the effectiveness of Ivermectin. The incredibly effective drug was described by Marik as “one of the safest drugs ever given to humanity,” with more than 3.7 billion doses given over 40 years. Australian research had earlier discovered that Ivermectin not only blocked the development of RNA viruses such as the Zika virus, influenza, West Nile virus, and Avian flu, but also lethally attacked COVID, wiping out “essentially all viral material by 48 hours.”

    Ivermectin “basically obliterates transmission of this virus. If you take it, you will not get sick,” testified Dr. Kory before the Senate Homeland Security Committee in December 2020. He pointed to “mountains of data,” which had emerged in the past few months, backing up his claims.

    These mountains were composed at the time of 27 studies, 16 of which were randomly controlled trials, with “miraculous” results. (Now there are 56 trials, with 28 randomly controlled trials.) People with COVID who took Ivermectin were “far more likely” to get better at home and did not need hospitalization, while those already ill in hospitals did not end up the intensive care units.

    In fact, six of the studies presented results showing that Ivermectin’s efficacy at reducing the risk of developing COVID was a staggering 92.5 percent. Dr. Hector Carvallo, professor of medicine at the University of Buenos Aires, conducted a real world trial of the drug, giving Ivermectin to 788 doctors and health-care workers in three different centers, with a control group of 407 medical staff who were not given Ivermectin. Out of the control group, 236 people became “ill with COVID,” and the 788 treated with Ivermectin recorded no infections.

  24. I’m thankful for the Frontline Dr’s of America: Marik, Gold, and Kory plus more who have studied Ivermectin. They have challenged the status quo because they stand by the Hippocratic Oath that all Dr’s say to themselves. But when STATE MEDICAL BOARDS interfere and threaten a Dr who uses other medicines in the US, they can lose their medical license because of misinformation, allegiance to the CDC, or other shit.

    There are Dr’s all over the US who have taken the lead. One of them is Dr Bartlett of Austin Texas who was seeing all the cases in ER and asked God for help. He began using an asthma steroid Budesonide and other items. I have his documented study and letter he wrote to Senator Hall. We don’t have to be ignorant nor taken advantage of , if we will have an openness to learn something new.
