Hospitals full of vaccinated patients
And it is not just Covid -- it is "everything else"
This article is a continuation of my thinking about vaccinated people having unusual amount, and unusual nature, of health problems. It is not a sound bite about “Joe Brandon” and is kind of long and thorough and some may find it boring. I wrote it mostly to provide fodder for other people who want to write about such things.
Everything in my article points to Covid vaccines somehow ruining general, innate immunity.
All of this interest in vaxxed people getting very ill, started with a certain talented young man who I know (“a friend of a friend”). I will call him Ethan. Ethan, a 20 year old, was vaccinated in May. Since then, Ethan had a Covid-like illness that was tested Covid negative four times. He had high fever of 101-102 degrees for 6 days, painful cough, chest pains, and even transient difficulties breathing that ended with a fortunately short ER visit. Luckily, this ended with Ethan recovering fully and not losing his smell.
Oddly enough, the two unvaxxed family members who were in close contact with Ethan throughout his illness and had Covid previously, did not get sick. I was purposely in very close contact, always unmasked, spent time in a car with him etc, just to see if I would get sick, and I did not. I am a not particularly healthy, but unvaxxed, middle aged male.
Two months after this, Ethan had an unremarkable minor illness, that ended with him getting bacterial pneumonia and needing antibiotics.
Ever since, I always look out for information about vaxxed people getting ill and anything I could find about pneumonia. This article summarizes what I know.
Pneumonia and Covid-Like illness
USA: CDC MMWR study “Interim Estimates of COVID-19 Vaccine Effectiveness” that looked at Covid-Like Illness (CLI) in Jun-Aug 2021. Covid-like illness to them is pneumonia and difficulty breathing and the source is emergency room visits. It may be due to Covid or due to, say, a bacterial lung infection.
It proudly declares that among sufferers of CLI, there is more “positive Covid tests” among unvaccinated. It is great for CDC, but is it good for the vaccinated? Well, it depends on whether the vaccinated become healthier overall after getting the vax and whether they tend to end up in emergency rooms a lot.
There is an answer to that question in CDC data, and the answer is that the vaccinated are LESS healthy and get MORE non-Covid CLI than the unvaccinated.
Let’s look at non-Covid CLI. The CDC article actually gives enough numbers to do some useful calculations.
I then calculated the average fully vaxxed percentage of the population for the period (47.22%), and the average fully UNvaccinated percentage (43.11%). Based on this number, I calculated the relative risk (RR) of “non-Covid CLI” between vaxxed and unvaxxed. It turned out that the vaxxed were 20% MORE LIKELY to have non-Covid CLI!
I thought the vax was supposed to make us healthier, not more open to pneumonias! But somehow it does.
It gets worse from here.
Covid-like Illness, Take Two
USA: CDC MMWR study “Laboratory-Confirmed COVID-19 Among Adults Hospitalized with COVID-19–Like Illness”. I covered it previously. It shows that vaccinated people get CLI/pneumonia 5 or so months after vaccination.
I will briefly rehash my article: it finds a huge number of people with CLI, with the rates of CLI among old people following vaccination rates of old people — but with a 5 month delay!
That delay means that over 5 months post-vaccination, something happens to older vaccinated people that makes them so much more susceptible to pneumonia. The temporal relation also nicely proves causality. After all, if old people start showing up in hospitals with pneumonia 5 months after vaccination, we know it was because of vaccination and NOT because they are “just old”. They were old before and right after vaccination. Five months after vaccination, they started falling ill in droves.
Again, read my article.
USA, Emergency Rooms swamped — and NOT with Covid
USA: NPR article “ERs are now swamped with seriously ill patients — but many don't even have COVID” — reporting that hospitals are swamped with non-Covid cases.
Even in parts of the country where COVID-19 isn't overwhelming the health system, patients are showing up to the ER sicker than they were before the pandemic, their diseases more advanced and in need of more complicated care.
Except now, those long-term care floors are full too, with a mix of COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients. That means people coming to the ER are being warehoused for hours, even days, forcing ER staff to perform long-term care roles they weren't trained to do.
This is sort of the same story as the CDC MMWRs — hospitals are full of sick covid-negative people with pneumonia, shortness of breath, heart attacks etc — but adding a bit of juicy details.
"We are hearing from members in every part of the country," says Dr. Lisa Moreno, president of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM). "The Midwest, the South, the Northeast, the West ... they are seeing this exact same phenomenon."
Although the number of ER visits returned to pre-coronavirus levels this past summer, admission rates, from the ER to the hospital's inpatient floors, are still almost 20% higher. That's according to the most recent analysis by the Epic Health Research Network, which pulls data from more than 120 million patients across the country
All of this human misery, likely, correlates with vaccination. Older people (just like in the CDC study) are disproportionally affected, and they are the ones heavily vaccinated and yet they fill hospitals at rates unseen before the pandemic.
Official Hospital Statistics
I looked up some historical and current hospital utilization numbers.
We can see that historical hospital utilization hovers at around 65%.
You can see that current utilization is 81.2%, out of which ONLY 2.5% is Covid.
Compared to 65% in 2017, non-Covid utilization now is 78%, or 20% higher (78/65)! Some hospitalizations include non-health related reasons such as violence, car crashes, and other things. Subtracting those from both sides, the increase in ill people is even greater! (someone wants to calculate it? Would make a great article).
What is the difference? Well, Covid is subtracted already, so the only other factor is vaccination of most older people. And do not give me the crap about “Delayed care”, no one delays care for shortness of breath or pneumonia ripping through lungs.
USA, Deborah Conrad video
This video by whistleblower Deborah Conrad was something that actually alarmed me that Ethan was not a lone unusual case. A helpful reader “Cetera” reminded me of it. Ms Conrad, who works in a hospital, also says that this summer they are overwhelmed with pneumonias and other illnesses suffered by the vaccinated.
Double jabbed Brits suffering worst colds ever
UK: Mirror article “Double jabbed Brits suffering worst colds ever". Self explanatory title about Brits ending up in hospitals due to common colds. It makes a silly suggestion that these people have Covid. No they do not — they get tested routinely if Covid is suspected. Instead of Covid, they have mere colds that send them to hospitals, shortness of breath and pneumonia.
Long waits at A&E becoming normal
UK: Guardian’s “Long waits at A&E becoming normal, warn doctors’ groups”. Guardian is a somewhat more serious publication, but it is saying the same thing.
Leaders of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) and the Society for Acute Medicine (SAM) said that some hospitals had effectively run out of space, meaning patients could not receive the right care until a bed became free.
Since case rate in the UK and US is roughly similar, it is likely that Covid patients are NOT the culprits of the 100% occupancy of hospitals.
Hospitals overwhelmed in Western Australia
Australia: Tweet with Premier of Western Australia saying that hospitals are overwhelmed there. Western Australia is isolated from the rest of the country and there is NO Covid in Western Australia — but it is heavily vaccinated.
This heavily vaccinated, Covid-free territory is having its hospitals overwhelmed. Why? We know why.
McGowan also says that the same is true about other Australian territories. Due to extreme lockdowns, Australia has nearly no Covid, but a lot of people are “successfully” vaccinated — and fill hospitals at rates not seen before.
Covid vax and immunity
Contents of this part are of speculative nature, but they are based on science articles that we discussed on substack previously. Writing about this should be done in a separate article, so I purposely avoid references.
Let me mention a few things that were touched upon by vax-critical authors. It seems that Covid vaccines seriously reprogram, and undermine, innate immunity that lets “normal” people have a minor cold without it becoming an extended hospital stay, and prevents cancers.
Such a change in immunity would not be visible in a sham “Phase II study” that lasts a few weeks. But it would be visible in population wide statistics half a year after vaccination, and this is what I am showing.
The immune and recovery mechanisms that are discussed is undermining CD8 killer cells, and undermining of BRCA1 mediated mechanism to repair DNA damage and splice broken DNA strands. Both of these are important, the first for fighting infections and cancer, and the second is for repair of DNA damage that could lead to cancer.
Since cancer takes time to grow even if unopposed, we will probably not see increased cancer rates until a year or two into vaccination.
Sorry for being so long, but I wanted to give a good overview of what is available. It took me a few days to write this.
