Disinformation on covid-19 vaccines a growing virus

Since the first vaccines against the Covid-19 disease were developed and the vaccination campaign began in Panama and several countries around the world, the stories and lies that have emerged around these biologics have been multiple. AFP

Disinformation and, conspiracy theories are a growing virus in the midst of the vaccination process against Covid-19 that needs an antidote of transparent information on the age and vaccination status of people who are hospitalized and die say Panama scientists.

Ivonne Torres Atencio, director of the Department of Pharmacology of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Panama, told La Prensa that disinformation has gained ground, in part because there has not been an appropriate campaign by the Ministry of Health (Minsa) with evidence of the benefits of vaccination  and fears and misinformation take a toll on the population that does not follow reliable sources of scientific information

Disinformation about vaccines is described by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) as one of the most serious risks to public health and is even more harmful when it fuels doubts.

Jorge Luis Prosperi, a member of the Health Advisory Council, stated that adequate communication has been and is the Achilles heel in controlling the epidemic. Achieving acceptance of the Covid-19 vaccine by the population is a great challenge facing the health sector at this stage of the fight to control the disease.

Data from the Expanded Program on Immunization of the Minsa show that in the country there are at least 26% of people with at least one dose and 14% with two doses of the anticovid vaccine, so that vaccination must still continue to be encouraged in the population.

Torres Atencio says that scientific evidence indicates that the two vaccines that are part of the vaccine portfolio in Panama, both Pfizer and AstraZeneca / Oxford University, are effective against the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its variants.

He recommended that the health authorities meet with the scientific community, put the personnel assigned to promotion and communication to work properly, and align the messages with the scientific movements.

Xavier Sáez-Llorens, infectologist, pediatrician, and advisor to the Covid-19 Panama Vaccine Research Consortium, stated that misinformation is fought head-on, forcefully, clearly and daily. The Government, medical and scientific associations, the media, businessmen and workers must act as a common force so that the correct message reaches all inhabitants.

He said that it is urgent to have transparent and real-time information on the ages and vaccinated people who are hospitalized and die in the country. This information would serve to encourage more people to get vaccinated as the majority of serious cases and deaths from Covid-19 occur in unvaccinated individuals, he said.

Recently, the Panamanian Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology highlighted that figures from Minsa show that vaccines have reduced fatality in Panama by 58%.

The total (historical) fatality is 1.6% and the fatality in the last month is 0.68%. This number is expected to continue to decline as more people are vaccinated.

Currently, 99% of the population that dies from Covid-19 in Panama is unvaccinated; while those vaccinated represent only 0.8% of deaths .

Postings from Oh Ya , Hogan and Alexandre Avakian (GRU)aka Brian, epitomize what this article is all about. Misinformation is a serious issue here and the Russians love every minute of it . Various news outlets , BBC, Mail etc are having to publish long articles (yet again ) explaining what the evil forces like the Russians are up to . Oh Ya, opens up with “genes” as they like to play with the minds of the less informed …but of course these vaccines have zero impact on your genes but heh …it sounds dangerous doesn’t it ? Another one of course is the % game of death records . Of course if 100% of the population is vaccinated then anyone dying after having been vaccinated will give you a figure of 100% of people dying will have been vaccinated. [note Oh Ya the vaccines are not established as 100% effective] The maths of course is completely outside Oh Ya and Hogan et al capabilities so that’s sad but nevertheless no reason why they should get away with it .

Disinformation is served fresh everyday in the comment section of Newsroom Panama. The factual news posts re the Covid crisis is unfortunately, somewhat offset by the trash allowed on this site. Because some people can be duped by the trash allowed here.

Yes, there re some serious side affects from the vaccines but they only occur in less than 1% of all vaccinations. Long term side affects from C-19 are occurring in 24% of all those affected. The benefits way out way the risks. I got vaccinated in March and feel fine.

So where are O Ya's "vains"? If he spent more time spellchecking and less time ranting about the Nuremberg Tribunal it would helpful. Meanwhile, let's all "pray" that he and Hogan and the wolf pack stop "preying" on our time. I for one will forego the daily flagellation but will be left wondering if the holy trio of cut and paste merchants ever really understood what they were copying.

Very well said MHogan especially the last part about the sports figure. Soldiers have been doing that forever also. Yet now the government has to run this jab on fear porn to try to get people to take it

Unfortunately Oh Ya, the “disinformation” is in the hands of the public health authority who, for reasons I cannot explain, bought into the Plandemic. One can only surmise amongst the theories for this. Has anyone noticed that those Technocrats rarely answer the concerns—they just repeat the mantra—SAFE AND EFFECTIVE and refer to the jab as a VACCINE— and by so doing have NOW AND FOREVER (irretrievably) lost credibility with the public: since it is still “experimental”, human subjects over time will prove or disprove its safety and efficacy and so far and even from “reliable sources” let alone so-called disinformation sites (often whistleblowers in the medical and scientific community). It seems there are more of the latter warning against the jabs than those proponents who basically involve the WHO, CDC, Gates, BigPharm, Biden administration, Trump, Fauci, Big Government and Big Business—the BigBad 9. Since most ordinary folks generally have a low rate of public confidence in Big Government to begin with (and now the other 8 as well due to their perceived lies or conflicts of interest) , is it any wonder that their words are mistrusted? And as Oh Ya pointed out: when has it ever been necessary to “bribe” or otherwise coerce people to do something if they truly felt it was beneficial? Fear, manipulation, threats, an apartheid situation, a threatened invasion of individual medical privacy have all been used against those who adhere to “my body, my choice to vaccinate or not”. Sorry, but these do not equate to a level of confidence but rather encourages individuals and groups to seek out facts from alternate sources when the sources that have the facts should have ALL ALONG disclosed them honestly and completely to the public but instead APPEAR to manipulate those facts, make the rules that have harmed its citizens, and failed miserably to convince everyone that a) Covid19 was not manufactured in a lab, b)was not intended as a population control —research Bill Gates and his history with Eugenics and failed vax support in 3rd world countries where he is now banned; c) the true lethality of the Delta strain—is it REALLY only moderately lethal —as some scientists have suggested and borne out by cases—but is only more contagious. But admitting that negates fear-mongering and compliance with more jabs. d) PCR tests have been PROVEN to elicit false positives yet “cases” become “infections” in a manipulation of word use and accumulated totals are published daily as a fear and compliance trick, making those who know this maneuver to be true totally skeptical of anything reported by “reliable sources”; e) people understand it is so easy for those with the data to manipulate that data in a way that suits their agenda whereas we “peasants” have to accumulate the data from other sources, some more reliable than others and when said data do not align with what we know factually and from first-hand experience, the BigBad 9 have lost the battle of credulity. f) numbers of Covid and variant deaths have been manipulated — deaths have had to be discounted yet the fake numbers are still being used and added to in order to hype Covid and enforce compliance initiatives g) no VALID causal study has ever been presented to prove “masks” work against Covid in the public environment — yet it has been used, as some suspect, as a “test” for public compliance with authority. As a contrary, studies have been proven the Covid virus particles cannot possibly be stopped with even N95 and the recommendation of multiple masks was laughable. Yes, droplets may not penetrate a mask but how many people are “sneezing” in public? g) there are reported “breakthrough” cases worldwide of vaccinated resulting in death and hospitalization yet somehow Panama has few to none—-strange; h) deaths from prior failed vaccines (Swine Flu and others) have resulted in a total halt yet as multiples of thousands provably due causally and hundreds if thousands suffer severe adverse reactions, vaccinations go on as though nothing has happened (other than a laughable “warning” added to the jab) and in fact, more effort to expand are promoted even when it flies in the face of bio-medical ethics. h) people are aware of treatments (like Ivermectin, HCQ and others) and feel betrayed by the medical cabal that they have been denied life-saving alternatives as outpatients or in-hospital therapies in order to advance an evil agenda and reward BigPharm to push the jab. ||. I hate to say this because of what it will mean as we move forward as a Society: I don’t believe credibility will ever be restored to the BigBad 9 because NOW, today, people believe they have been lied to, it’s game over — too late for transparency. Anything done now — be it door-to-door Biden type jab campaigns, commercials “everyone has the right to be free” with vaxxed arms raised to tell the others you won’t be allowed freedom, daily reports on deaths/hospitalizations/fake “cases” etc will only be seen as a manipulation of public opinion and coercion. There are only a couple options left unless the authorities reverse course on vaccine push to only those who voluntarily and without coercion request it, or to begin early outpatient treatment to stop hospitalizations/death. If they persist on pushing their agenda to gain compliance, the outcomes are few: 1) if freedom is threatened to a heightened effort, there will be some who will give in but they will forever be hostile participants; 2) those who hold out will revolt and the authorities will have to deal with them one way or another. Their only hope for the freedom they desire will be the international movement that is already formed and growing with efforts to bring to justice those who violated their human rights. Know that within that group will be those who suffered through lack of preventative medical care, those coerced against their will, those whose full freedom was denied, and those who were violated by failure to follow bio-medical ethics (no experimentation —“vaccine” is still experimental until 2023) on children or pregnant women and failure to give full and complete informed consent and that participating in this vaccine trial is fully acknowledged by those receiving it. Please, I beg you, do not take your people down the path that awaits them; reverse course even if it means bucking the BigBad 9! At this point, TRUTH does not matter. THERE IS NO TRUTH, THERE IS ONLY PERCEPTION. And Perception is now fixed in the minds of those who have already made that truth their reality. The Reality for them is that BigBad9 can never be trusted with health and all they have left is a strong desire to be free to determine their destiny. As one famous sports personality remarked: I would rather die of Covid than give up my freedom. Now Big Government has to retreat or prosecute. Is that their desire and our fate?

Good news folks Observer just messaged me and said he is going to post everything he knows about how good the experimental biological agent is for us. So let's give him a few minutes to type it out and post it. I personally can't wait.

Our friend Observer AKA dead man walking is here again. Have you any facts for us today or are you just going to do your usual stuff? Please tell us can you feel those spike proteins clumping up in your blood vessels ready to break loose and go into the small vains in your head of heart? Buyers remorse sucks I bet but I really hope you make it as you always bring so much information to our little chats we have on here. Not sure what we would do without your valuable input

Here comes the scientific expert O Ya spreading disinformation, can Brian be far behind ?

Well 1st off let all of us be honest here... Ok? It is not a vaccine, it is a experimental gene therapy that even the manufacturers have ststed on their websites. This jab has never before been tested on humans as real vaccine tests go through animal trials and this has not because it was issued emergency use authorization, which means no animal trials were done. Which makes the public the test animals.. And with emergency use authorization this gives the manufacturer complete ammunity against and lawsuits. If this experimental gene therapy hurts you or kills you there is nothing you can do to the manufacturer. Now they want to jab children which have a 99.997 %chance of living if they getvthe flu. They also want to jab pregnant women and it is fact that in the 1st and 2nd trimester 82 % of the women lost their babies.. 62 % of the people coming down with the flu in Israel already have been fully injected with this experimental biological agent. The VAERS system in the US has reported over 9000 deaths from the jab alone and over 200.000 adverse reactions. And Yale University has stated that only about 10% of the cases get reported to VAERS system. Fact the ebola vaccine was stopped after 25 deaths a few years ago, yet we can have 9000 and possibly 90.000 and they still push this gene therapy. Why is the insert in this gene therapy blank? Without info on what is in the product, without that info has are the people injecting this into people giving them informed consent info. Information is coming out everywhere about this experimental biological agent and this is not good for the manufacturers who are in this for only one reason $$$$. Why all the heart attacks, blood clots, lose of sight, hearing, bells palsy, uncontrollable twitching etc. A new study just out of Spain has stated that the sample of the jsb they obtained along with chain of custody shows a huge amount of graphene oxide in the vile whicjh is a know poison to humans. Ask yourself why is this there in the product. Look at the charts that show a increase in flu cases in countries following the increase in jabs. Is that not worrying to you? Ask yourself when in history have they ever had to bribe you to take a vaccine for a problem like this. Free food. Cars, lotto tickets. Million dollar draws, baseball tickets etc. Why is bill gates the center of the news on this? He is not a doctor he is a university dropout that stole this system from others. Go do a internet search on Bills TED talk, type in population reduction in the search. There are many places you the public can searchvout info on this experimental biological agent and places like CNN, MSLSD ETC are not them. do those who are mandating these injections know they are breaking the law from the 1947 Nuremberg trials and could be held accountable? And in those trials the excuse of I was told to do this or I did not know was not a accepted excuse. Maybe one day we will have Nuremberg 2.0. Well i cpuld go on all day but people need to do their own research. If you know someone who took this jab prey for them as the spike proteins they have let someone inject into their bodies has a good chance of killing them the next time they come into contact with a coronavirus (think common cold) for example and their bodies kill the patient trying to kill the virus. Just like it has killed all the lab test animals for the ladt 20 years they have been trying to make a vaccine for a coronavirus. Yes since SARS and MERS all they have accomplished is a lot of dead lab animals. Now you know why this was given emergency use authorization. They knew it would kill the lab animals AGAIN. So now we have lab rat Bob, Sue, and Andy and Jane. but hey if your over 18 take as many jabs as you want but Hey LEAVE THOSE KIDS ALONE.
