The only way to fight a deadly virus is to use an even deadlier vaccine.
No, let me correct myself: covid is actually less dangerous.
Via Sputnik News:
Pending a final decision on the controversial vaccine, Norway has decided to distribute its AstraZeneca stockpile to other Nordic countries that actually want to use it despite the associated risks.
“Norwegians are at increased risk of death from AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine, against COVID-19 has concluded the National Institute of Public Health (FHI), in its analysis recommending the vaccine, previously linked to serious complications in the form of rare blood clotting and bleeding in case of low platelet level.
Refraining from vaccination could prevent up to 10 deaths from side effects, the FHI said, according to the Verdens Gang newspaper.
So far, five cases of serious incidents have been reported in Norway shortly after vaccination, including three deaths. The FHI estimated the death rate from AstraZeneca’s vaccine at 2.3 people per 100,000 vaccinated.
The FHI noted that, on the other hand, continuing to vaccinate would expose young women to an “unreasonable risk,” given the current relatively high levels of infection in Norway.
In addition, the institute opposes offering the vaccine on a voluntary basis, as has been proposed in Norway and other Scandinavian countries.
“We believe that such an alternative may appear unethical and with a high risk that those making such a decision may not have fully understood the risk to which they are exposing themselves,” the institute said.
The FHI also believes that recommending the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine could lead to a decline in public confidence in vaccination programs in general.
“This could lead to a drop in vaccination rates and long-term vaccination rates, and to patients in at-risk groups also saying no to vaccines.”
A recent survey conducted by the FHI in collaboration with Mindshare and Norstat indicated that 76% of respondents were skeptical of at least one of the vaccines, despite 82% of them initially being positive about getting vaccinated. Among vaccines, AstraZeneca had the highest level of skepticism (99%), ahead of Moderna (9%) and Pfizer (8%).
Looks like Twitter and Facebook need to hire more Norwegian censors.
How do you kill a deadly virus without a deadly vaccine?
“However, the government believes it is too early to stop the vaccine altogether, and is instead launching a new panel to further investigate AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, which have raised similar concerns.
However, pending a final decision, Norway has decided to distribute its AstraZeneca stockpile to other Nordic countries that really want to use it.
Of the Norwegian stockpile, Sweden will borrow 200,000, while 16,000 will go to Iceland.
Or humanitarian aid?
Maybe it’s both.
Maybe, I mean, it’s “both”.
