BREAKING: Pfizer says its experimental COVID-19 pill cut hospitalization and death by 90% and will seek authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and international regulators.https://t.co/wDVaLwk9lF
Pfizer Inc. said Friday that its experimental antiviral pill for COVID-19 cut rates of hospitalization and death by nearly 90% in high-risk adults, as the drugmaker joins the race to bring the first easy-to-use medication against the coronavirus to the U.S. market.
Currently all COVID-19 treatments used in the U.S. require an IV or injection. Competitor Merck’s COVID-19 pill is already under review at the Food and Drug Administration after showing strong initial results, and on Thursday the United Kingdom became the first country to OK it.
Pfizer said it will ask the FDA and international regulators to authorize its pill as soon as possible, after independent experts recommended halting the company’s study based on the strength of its results. Once Pfizer applies, the FDA could make a decision within weeks or months.
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine that could soon be authorized for younger children still requires two shots given on the same schedule as the vaccine for adolescents and adults－but doses will be a third of the size. https://t.co/yQKHAiTAkM
5 year olds ELIGIBLE for the experimental injection?
You mean it will be mandatory — with punishments for both kids and parents for non-compliance — that tiny human beings with zero risk of danger are injected with something with unknown long term effects/immune system damage? https://t.co/9DlKFPwbMs
Project Veritas released the fifth video in its COVID vaccine investigative series featuring Pfizer insider Melissa Strickler, who revealed apparently leaked internal emails that show executives telling staff to be secretive about the use of human fetal tissue in laboratory testing of the COVID vaccine.
Project Veritas released the fourth part of an investigations into the Covid vaccine.
Three Pfizer scientists told undercover journalists that natural antibodies are a better protection against Covid than the vaccine, with one saying:
“When somebody is naturally immune — like they got COVID — they probably have more antibodies against the virus…When you actually get the virus, you’re going to start producing antibodies against multiple pieces of the virus…So, your antibodies are probably better at that point than the [COVID] vaccination.”

Pfizer has announced that it will begin using its west Dublin facility ‘as part of its supply chain’ for its Covid-19 vaccine. Up to $40m will be invested at Grange Castle (top) with 75 new jabs jobs.
In a statement, the pharma giant said:
“…Pfizer is now bringing on additional European-based facility to be a part of the global Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine supply chain network and Grange Castle (Ireland) will contribute to the worldwide supply of the vaccine.
“Pfizer’s Grange Castle facility will produce mRNA drug substance. Given the extensive technical transfer process, on-site development, equipment installation and regulatory approvals needed for the sites, we expect both facilities will be brought by the end of 2021.”
