“…the mental gymnastics all of you are involved in here to maintain this narrative are stunning, given the educational backgrounds you have…”

A pandemic preparedness event hosted by the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute with Professor Luke O Neill and Kingston Mills, professor of experimental immunology and the academic director of the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, among the attendees, is interrupted.

No way to treat heroes.


This afternoon.

Graham Neary writes:

‘We can now calculate Ireland’s death rates for every age group and for every year up to and including 2021, with the help of freshly released CSO figures and the CSO’s population estimates. I’ve done this. Some interesting results:

‘Firstly, Covid-19 coincided with Ireland’s 85+ population achieving their lowest ever death rates in each of the past two years.

‘An amazing result in the circumstances.

‘The results are only slightly less positive for the grey-haired 65-84 cohort.Three out of the four categories here had a small increase in 2021 over the prior year.

‘But 2021 was still safer for every category in this cohort compared to 2018:

‘As for 45-64 year olds, every category here saw a new all-time low death rate in 2020. However, every category in this bracket also saw an increase in 2021 compared to 2020.

‘But again, each category was still safer in 2021 than it was in 2018.

‘Broadly similar for 25-44 year olds.

‘And as for for 5-24 year olds…

…the world remained extremely safe.’

‘We believed we had logic, love, and truth on our side so it was easy to wish death upon the unvaccinated.

‘Those of us who ridiculed and mocked the non-compliant did it because we were embarrassed by their courage and principles and didn’t think the unvaccinated would make it through unbroken and we turned the holdouts into punching bags.

‘…The mobs, the mask Nazis, and the vaccine disciples have been embarrassed by “betting against” the unvaccinated because mandates only had the power we gave them. It was not compliance that ended domination by Big Pharma Companies, Bill Gates and his many organisations, and the World Economic Forum… It was THANKS to the people we tried to embarrass, ridicule, mock and tear down.

‘We should all try and find some inner gratitude for the unvaccinated as we took the bait by hating them because their perseverance and courage bought us the time to see we were wrong.

‘So if mandates ever return for Covid or any other disease or virus, hopefully, more of us will be awake and see the rising authoritarianism that has no concern for our well-being and is more about power and control. The War on the Unvaccinated was lost and we should all be very thankful for that.

‘…we have produced experimental data that show that carbon dioxide content in inhaled air rises on average to 13,000 to 13,750 ppm no matter whether children wear a surgical or an FFP2 mask. This is far beyond the level of 2,000 ppm considered the limit of acceptability and beyond the 1,000 ppm that are normal for air in closed rooms.

‘This estimate is rather on the low side, as we only measured this after a short time without physical exertion. Decision makers and law courts should take this into consideration when establishing rules and guidance to fight infections.

Ah here.

This morning.

Via Irish Mirror:

The research, which surveyed over 12,000 people across six European countries to investigate public trust in expertise, reveals the public’s view on the pandemic, vaccination, and their belief in various Covid-19 conspiracies.

Despite 31% of people in Ireland thinking the number of deaths from coronavirus were exaggerated by government, the majority still expressed a strong belief in the scientific consensus that Covid-19 vaccines are safe.

…The feeling that government is not honest and truthful was shared by 48% of Irish people in the first part of the Peritia study, with 58% thinking the Government communicates inaccurate and biased information.

…Regarding the legacy of the pandemic, 78% of people in Ireland are concerned about its long-term impact.


Irish respondents, and those in Italy, also showed the highest rate of willingness to comply with coronavirus restrictions put in place by the Government, with 88% of people saying that they always or sometimes do this.

Only three people under 65 died of Covid with no other underlying causes in 2020, according to the Central Statistics Office (CSO)?

The youngest children have been most affected by lockdowns and closures during the Covid pandemic, new UK research finds.

Via The Guardian:

The research – published by the Education Endowment Foundation – found parents and teachers concerned that children in England were struggling with their emotional wellbeing as well as their ability to learn language and numeracy skills, after starting in reception classes after the earlier spring lockdown.

Teachers who spoke to the researchers said the disruption had left some infants with “low self-esteem and confidence”, and that more children than previously “feel overwhelmed” by learning.

Others highlighted increased behaviour problems seen when children returned to school, with some “biting, hitting, unable to share”, leading to teachers having to focus more on helping children settle back into school.

Ruth Coleman, headteacher at Highfield school in Ipswich, said: “When children returned to our nursery after the pandemic, many struggled with vital aspects of early years development, such as personal touch, or coping in bigger groups of children.

This afternoon.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorised a booster dose for young children ages 5 to 11 years old.

Via FDA:

Today, we amended the emergency use authorisation (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, authorizing the use of a single booster dose for administration to individuals 5 through 11 years of age at least five months after completion of a primary series with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.

“While it has largely been the case that COVID-19 tends to be less severe in children than adults, the omicron wave has seen more kids getting sick with the disease and being hospitalized, and children may also experience longer term effects, even following initially mild disease,” said FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf, M.D.

“Vaccination continues to be the most effective way to prevent COVID-19 and its severe consequences, and it is safe.”
