- The Delta variant has a very low 0.2% case fatality rate (CFR) in the U.K., which drops to 0.03% in those under 50, yet is being used as impetus for COVID-19 restrictions
- The public, increasingly fed up with the contradictory guidelines and mandates, is speaking out against the draconian measures that are being reinstated
- In July 2021, more than 160,000 people, including 11,000 in Paris, protested in France against the “health pass,” the country’s version of a vaccine passport
- Demonstrations against Italy’s similar Green Pass have popped up in Rome, Naples and Turin, with people calling for freedom and chanting “down with the dictatorship”
- Thousands of protestors also turned up to rebel against extended lockdown orders in Australia and, in India, hundreds of people joined a Freedom Rally to protest COVID lockdowns and mandatory masks, vaccination and COVID testing
- In the U.S., more than 100 people protested outside the Iowa State Capitol against COVID-19 vaccine mandates, while advocacy groups in California filed a lawsuit against Gov. Gavin Newsom and health officials to challenge COVID restrictions in kindergarten through grade 12 schools
COVID-19 vaccines were supposed to set you free and bring life back to what it looked like in 2019 — no masks, no lockdowns and freedom for everyone, regardless of vaccination status.
Along those lines, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their guidelines May 13, 2021, to state that vaccinated individuals no longer needed to wear a mask outdoors and in most spaces indoors1 but, July 27, 2021, they changed the guidance to once again recommend masks for vaccinated people while indoors in areas with “high” or “substantial” COVID-19 transmission.2
This time, the about-face about masks — even for the vaccinated — was blamed on the Delta variant of the virus.
At this point, however, with effective treatments like ivermectin available, the documented high survival rate of COVID-193 and knowledge that if you’ve had COVID-19, you’re already likely immune to further infection, the rationale for further restrictions is questionable — and even more so when you consider the Delta variant has a very low 0.27% case fatality rate (CFR) in the U.K., which drops to 0.03% in those under 50.4
