The news about anything to do with Corona is overwhelming - if one is on Twitter and Facebook alone it is already too much, add to that all the messages on Messenger, WhatsApp and other channels can make ones head explode.
Lately, I tried to make sense out of some of this, and somehow, a pattern emerged by putting it all in order.
I published a long blog on the Hive Blockchain, and I won't just copy it all over on this one,
but simply link to it (it is publicly available everywhere):
click for the whole story
Just for the fun of it, I include some insane memes I found on Facebook, which are not part of the Hive blog. If anyone feel 'outed' or embarrassed about it, they should not have posted them.
A search on Facebook on thetopic of Corona would keep one occupied until the end of times.
Some serious, some funny, but most of it insanely dumb, particularly the comments.
Vaccines against covid
I have been gathering a number of resources about these vaccines that are currently on the market. I am rather cautious and not given to conspiracy theories, so I select my resources carefully. What concerns me at this time is that adverse reactions to these vaccines, all of which are only under a temporary emergency use authorization, are alarmingly mounting, but news about it had been being suppressed.
But more of it is being reported now, and not just by "conspiracy theorists", but reputable news and government sources, it can no longer be ignored. I present a selection of items which I shared on Twitter.
But first, for the sake of being thorough and fair, here is a video by the FDA explaining the Drug Approval Process:
The process is similar in Europe and other places in the world. Check out how the WHO explains it:
WHO lists additional COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use and issues interim policy recommendations
A interesting read would be this, and perhaps read it first before continuing here - the link opens in a separate window:
What does full FDA approval of a vaccine do if it’s already authorized for emergency use?
Apropos FDA, you might want to check out and follow the link on this tweet:

here are some select tweets i posted or shared lately:

Now I like to present something that some may consider controversial - videos such as these are often banned on social media sites and YouTube. A shame really, because a exchange of ideas is often impossible and only one side, the officially sanctioned opinion, is presented. But like I mentioned above, more of it is also appearing now in the main stream media.
A PATHOLOGIST SUMMARY OF WHAT THESE JABS DO TO
Talk about 100,000 dead first, then wonder that people are scared and afraid!
A political failure at all levels!
How does it look like:
Austrian Ministry of Health
So at this time 437 people are currently sick in all of Austria! Statistically speaking, what are the chances that you will encounter one of them (who should be in quarantine) on the public transport in Vienna, and he will then also cough on us!
Quote from the text:
"In order to reverse the trend again, the company is trying to reduce the fear of infection among passengers. On the one hand, reference is made to the study by AGES (Agency for Health and Food Security) presented on May 6 that no cluster infections had been reported so far -
meaning no occurrence of frequent cases in public transportation."
Zuerst über 100.000 Tote reden, dann wundern sie sich das die Menschen verschreckt sind und sich fürchten!
Ein politisches Versagen auf allen Ebenen!
Wie sieht es aus:
Also momentan 437 Aktuell Erkrankte in ganz Österreich! Statistisch gesehen, was sind die Chancen dass man einen davon (der sich ja in Quarantäne befinden sollte) auf den Öffis in Wien begegnet der uns dann auch noch anhustet!
Zitat von dem Text:
"Um den Trend wieder umzukehren, bemüht sich das Unternehmen, die Angst vor einer Ansteckung bei den Fahrgästen zu nehmen. Einerseits verweist man auf die am 6. Mai präsentierte Studie der AGES (Agentur für Gesundheit und Ernährungssicherheit), wonach bisher kein einziger Infektions-Cluster – also das Auftreten gehäufter Fälle – in Öffis aufgetreten sei."
The restrictions don't stop until there is a vaccine or an effective drug.
I really don't want to be vaccinated with the Gates miracle syringe.
An effective drug? it never existed against corona viruses, there will never be. Tamiflu against a flu that was barely noticeable. And vaccine against swine flu where people got really sick afterwards. Now they want to play around with RNA, intervene in our DNA - this can have bad consequences because the test subjects would first have to be observed for years whether they might not get cancer.
We are upset about genetic engineering in our food, so do we want to inject genetic engineering into people?
This week in the Zeit (magazine):
The vaccine inventors from BioNTech.
Links below are all in German:
Im Team gegen Corona
Erste Teilnehmer von Biontech-Studie in den USA geimpft
Quote: "In search of a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, the first tests by the Mainz-based company Biontech and the US company Pfizer have also started in the United States. The companies said that the first subjects had been treated. The candidate vaccine is an experimental RNA vaccine."
They have been on the radar since April. Successful with stock market price through press releases. Much like the gold exploration companies - are always on the lookout. Now and then promising reports. And then: Bre-X
Quote from Wer ist Biontech?
"The share price is, at least for many investors, the measure of a company's success. In the middle of the week, that of the Mainz-based biotechnology group Biontech on the US technology exchange Nasdaq rose to almost $ 56. That was an increase of more than 30 percent in a single day."
I am interested in the so-called dark figures. We have to wear masks because we could possibly be asymptomatic virus throwers. But my question: should I have caught the virus, be asymptomatic, then after some time my immune system should have successfully fought the virus - as well as every other sick person who has then recovered. Thus, like the recovered, I am part of herd immunity. That would also explain why the number of cases did not go up despite loosening, meetings, demos, hardware stores, Easter, Pentecost, etc.
I've had a lot of experience with corona virus. The last time I was sick in 2012 was when I was hit hard. Nothing since then, and hardly ever before.
Die Beschränkungen hören erst gänzlich auf, wenn es einen Impfstoff oder ein wirksames Medikament gibt.
Mit dem Gates seiner Wunderspritze lass ich mich aber wirklich nicht impfen.
Ein wirksames Medikament? gab es niemals gegen Coronaviren, wird es auch nie geben. Tamiflu gegen eine Grippe die kaum bemerkbar war. Und Impfstoff gegen die Schweinegrippe wo Menschen daraufhin erst so recht krank wurden. Jetzt wollen sie mit RNA herumspielen, in unser DNA eingreifen - das kann schlechte Folgen haben denn die müssten Probanden erstmal jahrelang beobachten ob die nicht vielleicht Krebs davon bekommen.
Wir regen uns über Gentech in unserer Nahrung auf, und da wollen sie Gentech in Menschen einspritzen?
Diese Woche in der Zeit:
Die Impfstoff-Erfinder von BioNTech.
Link: Im Team gegen Corona
Erste Teilnehmer von Biontech-Studie in den USA geimpft
Zitat: "Auf der Suche nach einem Impfstoff gegen SARS-CoV-2 sind mittlerweile auch die ersten Tests des Mainzer Unternehmens Biontech und des US-Unternehmens Pfizer in den Vereinigten Staaten angelaufen. Die erste Probanden seien behandelt worden, teilten die Firmen nun mit. Es handelt sich bei der Kandidatvakzine um einen experimentellen RNA-Impfstoff."
Die sind schon seit April am Radar. Mit Börsenkurs durch Presseaussendungen erfolgreich. Ungefähr so wie die Goldexploration Firmen - sind immer auf der Suche. Ab und zu vielversprechende Meldungen. Und dann: Bre-X
Quote von Wer ist Biontech?
"Der Aktienkurs ist zumindest für viele Investoren das Maß für den Erfolg eines Unternehmens. Mitte der Woche ging der des Mainzer Biotechnologiekonzerns Biontech an der US-Technologiebörse Nasdaq bis auf fast 56 Dollar in die Höhe. Das waren ein Plus von mehr als 30 Prozent an einem einzige Tag."
Mich interessieren die sogenannten Dunkelziffern. Wir müssen ja Masken tragen weil wir möglicherweise asymptomatische Virenschleudern sein könnten. Meine Frage aber: sollte ich das Virus erwischt haben, asymptomatisch sein, dann müsste ja nach einiger Zeit mein Immunsystem das Virus erfolgreich bekämpft haben - sowie auch bei jedem anderen Erkrankten der dann genesen ist. Somit bin ich, eben so wie die Genesenen, ein Teil der Herdenimmunität. Das würde auch erklären warum die Fallzahlen trotz Lockerungen, Versammlungen, Demos, Baumarkt, Ostern, Pfingsten usw nicht in die Höhe gegangen sind.
Ich habe so einiges erlebt in Bezug auf Corona Viren. Letztes Mal war ich in 2012 krank, da hat es mich gut erwischt. Seither nichts mehr, und kaum je vorher.

Genetic vaccines against COVID-19: hope or RISK?
The video was originally uploaded in German on May 3rd, he has now dubbed it in English and posted on May 10th. Thus, this important information is available to a much wider audience.
For best viewing, go to full screen.
We must urgently develop measures to tackle the new coronavirus
— but safety always comes first, says Shibo Jiang.
and at the New York Blood Center, New York, USA.
Around the world, I am seeing efforts to support ‘quick-fix’ programmes aimed at developing vaccines and therapeutics against COVID-19. Groups in the United States and China are already planning to test vaccines in healthy human volunteers. Make no mistake, it’s essential that we work as hard and fast as possible to develop drugs and vaccines that are widely available across the world. But it is important not to cut corners.
Vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, smallpox and influenza have a long history of safe use and were developed in line with requirements of regulatory agencies.
I have worked to develop vaccines and treatments for coronaviruses since 2003, when the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak happened. In my view, standard protocols are essential for safeguarding health. Before allowing use of a COVID-19 vaccine in humans, regulators should evaluate safety with a range of virus strains and in more than one animal model. They should also demand strong preclinical evidence that the experimental vaccines prevent infection, even though that will probably mean waiting weeks or even months for the models to become available.
Journal Human Vaccines Volume 2, 2006 - Issue 2
DNA vaccines are based on the transfer of genetic material, encoding an antigen, to the cells of the vaccine recipient. Despite high expectations of DNA vaccines as a result of promising preclinical data their clinical utility remains unproven. However, much data is gathered in preclinical and clinical studies about the safety of DNA vaccines. Here we review current knowledge about the safety of DNA vaccines. Safety concerns of DNA vaccines relate to genetic, immunologic, toxic, and environmental effects. In this review we provide an overview of findings related to the safety of DNA vaccines, obtained so far. We conclude that the potential risks of DNA vaccines are minimal. However, their safety issues may differ case-by-case, and they should be treated accordingly.
There were discussions on Facebook about the subject of vaccines, lock-downs and possible second and third waves of COVID-19. I just want to pick out one, followed by my answer.
What do you know about SARS? Where is it now, how many "waves" of it since 2003 - just for an example. Pandemics such as these run their course in due time. By the time they have a vaccine (if ever - i.e. there never was one found for SARS*) it will have run its course and the vaccine irrelevant to go on the trash heap - but if it mutates, then the vaccines will be useless anyway, the same as many of the flu vaccines were useless, and some, like the swine flu, were even dangerous. But Pharma will have made billions in profit.
The way it is going now (with exceptions of a few bad pockets that are cited as scare stories) the curves are flattening, so in order to keep up the pharma propaganda, there has to be the specter of new waves projected, and as some say, much worse than the original - because without fear (which by itself lowers your immune system) they cannot exert the type of desired control to turn people into obedient robots.
Lets just drink the Cool-Aid.
So any claim that we can never return to normal unless there is a vaccine and everyone is vaccinated, is
irresponsible scaremongering. The fact hat such comes from the chancellor of Austria is however alarming.
To speculate what is behind all this, I leave to others - and you, dear reader: what does your common sense tell you?
As of 2020, there is no cure or protective vaccine for SARS that has been shown to be both safe and effective in humans. According to research papers published in 2005 and 2006, the identification and development of novel vaccines and medicines to treat SARS was a priority for governments and public health agencies around the world. In early 2004, an early clinical trial on volunteers was planned. A major researcher´s 2016 request, however, demonstrated that no field-ready SARS vaccine had been completed because likely market-driven priorities had ended funding. ............ Wikipedia - SARS Treatment
well, yeah, but it is a strain of SARS
so what about SARS?
By 2004, SARS cases had slowed just as mysteriously as they had started in Guandong province of southern China 2 years earlier, in December of 2002. Yet the legacy of unanswered questions the pathogen left behind should keep scientists, public health officials, epidemiologists, and ethicists occupied for a long time to come. Why, exactly, should we revive discussion if it is no longer a pressing threat? After all, the SARS death toll is relatively low with 812 deaths worldwide. What’s more, the looming H5N1 avian flu virus is currently front page news. Even so, the SARS epidemic should not be filed away without appreciation of the lessons it taught.
Although short-lived, SARS forced us to face the unpleasant reality of global pandemics and to address the ethico-legal dilemmas that result from hasty public health measures.
Don't forget, I am first and foremost a artist.
