VSS Scientific Updates During Pandemic Times #23

1. Jeffrey Sachs Suggests a Possible Lab Origin of Covid-19

“Writing for the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Sachs and Harrison said the evidence gathered was not adequately reviewed. Both co-authored a paper titled ‘A call for an independent inquiry into the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus’ where they said that a critical part of the virus’s spike protein contains details that point towards the notion that the SARS-Cov-2 may have originated in a laboratory.”

2. Disturbing Vaccine Adverse Events Data

“These products are safe” has been a consistent claim of covid vaccines, but the numbers do not bear this out.”

3. Among Children and Adolescents, Estimated Vaccine Effectiveness for 2 Doses of BNT162b2 Against Symptomatic Infection Decreased Rapidly

“…vaccine effectiveness against symptomatic infection for children 5 to 11 years of age was 60.1% 2 to 4 weeks after dose 2 and 28.9% during month 2 after dose 2. Among adolescents 12 to 15 years of age, estimated vaccine effectiveness was 59.5% 2 to 4 weeks after dose 2 and 16.6% during month 2”

4. High Population Burden of Omicron Variant (B.1.1.529) Associated
with the Emergence of Severe Hepatitis of Unknown Etiology in
Children: Pre-proof

“Of the total of 39 countries, 12 detected at least one hepatitis case, and their
confirmatory diagnoses of Omicron cases from 1 December 2021 to 27 April 2022
ranged from 4.4 to 11.9 million. Among the remaining 27 countries, the cumulative
number ranged from 0.5 to 5.5 million cases. Countries with hepatitis cases experienced
a higher population burden of Omicron cases (p=0.013).”

5. Impact of Health Misinformation in the Digital Information Environment in the United States Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic

“We agree that misinformation has been a major problem during the pandemic. The spread of inaccurate scientific information has made it difficult for the public to make the right decisions to protect themselves, their families, and their communities from COVID-19 and the collateral public health damage arising from the pandemic countermeasures. As such, the disinformation has led to great harm in the lives and livelihoods of Americans. We submit the following examples of disinformation from the CDC and other health organizations that have shattered the public’s trust in science and public health and will take decades to repair.”

Geert Vanden Bossche received his DVM from the University of Ghent, Belgium, and his PhD degree in Virology from the University of Hohenheim, Germany. He held adjunct faculty appointments at universities in Belgium and Germany. After his career in Academia, Geert joined several vaccine companies (GSK Biologicals, Novartis Vaccines, Solvay Biologicals) to serve various roles in vaccine R&D as well as in late vaccine development.

Geert then moved on to join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Health Discovery team in Seattle (USA) as Senior Program Officer; he then worked with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) in Geneva as Senior Ebola Program Manager. At GAVI he tracked efforts to develop an Ebola vaccine. He also represented GAVI in fora with other partners, including WHO, to review progress on the fight against Ebola and to build plans for global pandemic preparedness.

Back in 2015, Geert scrutinized and questioned the safety of the Ebola vaccine that was used in ring vaccination trials conducted by WHO in Guinea. His critical scientific analysis and report on the data published by WHO in the Lancet in 2015 was sent to all international health and regulatory authorities involved in the Ebola vaccination program. After working for GAVI, Geert joined the German Center for Infection Research in Cologne as Head of the Vaccine Development Office. He is at present primarily serving as a Biotech / Vaccine consultant while also conducting his own research on Natural Killer cell-based vaccines.
