Why were US media silent on Pfizer vaccine deaths?

Twenty-three elderly Norwegian people died after receiving Pfizer vaccines. Thirteen of them have been assessed and common side effects may have contributed to severe reactions in them, according to the Norwegian Medicines Agency. 

Norway is a small Northern European country and only about 25,000 people have been vaccinated with Pfizer vaccines. Twenty-three deaths are a large number. But surprisingly, mainstream English-language media did not report the incident immediately, as if they had already reached a consensus. Major US and UK media were obviously downplaying their deaths.

In contrast, those major Western media will immediately hype any unfavorable information about Chinese vaccines and try to amplify their impact on public psychology. For example, the data of China's Sinovac vaccine was lower than expected in Brazil, and it was reported everywhere in Western media. The death of a Brazilian volunteer who participated in the trials also became a major event in Western media. But it was later proven that the death had nothing to do with the vaccination, and Western media lost their interest.

The COVID-19 vaccine is serious scientific issue. The current pandemic situation is extremely critical. It is the fundamental interests of all mankind to have more vaccines to fight COVID-19. However, some mainstream US and British media are taking the lead in putting geopolitical labels on vaccines. They are meddling in political stances with the scientific attitude toward vaccines, using their propaganda to promote Pfizer vaccines and smearing Chinese vaccines.

In fact, the research and development of all COVID-19 vaccines is relatively hasty. They should have gone through more sample tests and longer clinical verification before being fully introduced to the market. But time does not wait, and the pandemic does not wait. The vaccines have been promoted to the front line of the COVID-19 fight with a much faster speed.

If there needs to be some comparison, then China's inactivated vaccine definitely has more solid foundation in safety than Pfizer's mRNA vaccine. The inactivated vaccine technology has been very mature and has undergone decades of clinical testing. But it is the first time that the mRNA technology was applied to the vaccine. This large-scale promotion of Pfizer's vaccine is a continuous process of large-scale testing on human beings.

We believe the US and some Western countries do not have better choices now. Mass vaccination of Pfizer is a must. Even if there are risks, these countries would rather bear them. As long as they can save the lives of most people, they would accept the pros and cons. Western mainstream media turned a blind eye to the death of the 23 people, which can be regarded as a part of their acceptance of the "big picture."

Western media's crude double standards on vaccines and their unhealthy mindset show that the US and UK mainstream media's mentality toward China has gone highly geopolitical. Double standards have become political correctness for them. They are no longer objective in terms of competition with China. Attacking China is their desperate goal.

In terms of the COVID-19 vaccines, Chinese society and the Chinese government have regarded science and objectivity as priorities. In a practical and realistic manner, China has squarely faced the reality that Chinese vaccines lacked sufficient data. Chinese COVID-19 vaccines have been put on the market but are conditional. Vaccination priority will be given to high-exposure populations between 18 and 59 years old, not the elderly. No senior Chinese official has come out to openly endorse Chinese vaccines. Most praises about China's vaccines are from abroad. Many leaders of developing countries have taken the lead in injecting Chinese vaccines based on their countries' data of Phase III trials.

However, the Pfizer vaccine has been strongly promoted by the US administration and capital. Their potential risk has been deliberately downplayed by Western public opinion. And public opinion has created an impression that Pfizer's mRNA vaccine, which is being used for the first time, is safer than the Chinese vaccine.

Regrettably, Washington has promoted China-US confrontation and the US and its major allies have initiated their ideological frenzy. Is there any justice? They believe it is right to suppress China and wrong to be fair to China. Such an attitude has extended to serious scientific and humanitarian fields which should have been far away from politics.

Chinese people need to face such increasingly harsh ideological confrontation whether we are willing to or not. We must defend China's national interests and support our own country in important competition. To weaken China's competitiveness, the US and its allies' public opinions have completely disregarded ethics. Their attitude toward China is nothing but geopolitical logic. We will not cringe from their attacks.

Thank you, 12dream:

That is exactly what we've been talking about.

Remember OxyContin?  It was produced by the drug company Purdue Pharma.  Here's an excerpt from Wiki about the company (quoted for those who don't have access to that website):

"Purdue Pharma L.P. is a privately held pharmaceutical company founded by John Purdue Gray. It is (or respectively was) owned principally by members of the Sackler family as descendants of Mortimer and Raymond Sackler.  In 2007, it paid out one of the largest fines ever levied against a pharmaceutical firm for mislabeling its product OxyContin, and three executives were found guilty of criminal charges.  Although the company shifted its focus to abuse-deterrent formulations, Purdue continued to market and sell opioids as late as 2019, and continued to be involved in lawsuits around the opioid epidemic in the United States.  Purdue filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on September 15, 2019 in New York.

On October 21, 2020 it was reported that Purdue had reached a settlement potentially worth $8.3bn, admitting that it "knowingly and intentionally conspired and agreed with others to aid and abet" doctors dispensing medication "without a legitimate medical purpose". Members of the Sackler family will additionally pay $225m and the company will close."

My remark:  They can always switch to another name and re-open.

If the three executives had to go to prison upon conviction (they did not), Trump would have issued an executive order to pardon them.  

That's how corrupt the system is -- the lying, cheating, scapegoating (everything that Pompeo admitted to using all the time at the Texas A & M University graduation speech.  You can google it, and here's an excerpt from his speech:

"Having said that, not all tough places are the same. They each present a different set of challenges. I -- it reminds me, you would know this as -- it’s a bit of an aside. But in terms of how you think about problem sets, I -- when I was a cadet, what’s the first -- what’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It’s -- it was like -- we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment."

You can tell your little kids: "The real world is not what you think it is, dear."

 IT'S NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR THE PFIZER VACCINE. ️️

FROM THE CDC;  3,150 people vaccinated in ONE DAY are "unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work" after vaccination. 

This is a massive 2.7% of people who can no longer work after having the Pfizer vaccine.

Brazilian Chief, Bolosonaro, is likely to follow Trump's fall from his very aggressive stance ( by the way, was / is never a grace ) if he is foolish enough to play along that trumpain games, heinously, as their " shoe shinner political friend " .  Their political games have been a real disgrace and shame to Latinos of South American nations.    

BRAZLIANS NEED NOT BE SUCH POLITICALLY NAIVE FOOLS FOR THAT LONG TIME SINCE THEY ARE FAR MORE SUPERIOR SOCCER PLAYERS AND KICKERS THAN THE YANKEES COULD DO FOR DECADES !

You have my endorsement of your arguments, gork. 

Bolsonaro is Trump's lapdog without any credibility whatsoever.  He was elected by default due to the poor performance of Brazil's former leftist leaders.

The claims of high efficacy for the Pfizer mRNA vaccine do not stand scientific scrutiny, as has been demonstrated in the challenge launched by British medical scientists.  The news about the thirty deaths in Norway remains invisible in the Western press or simply dismissed as an anomaly. 

Considering the small population of Norway, 30 DEATHS cannot be explained away as a simple anomaly.

Remember that when that single instance of suspected side effect of Sinovac appeared in the same Brazilian nation, there were headlines all over the Western media. 

When that possibility was extinguished by the Brazilians themselves after they found the real cause of those symptoms, the same Western media effervesced like a pinpricked hot balloon.

The age-old incubation method still remains the most dependable route to take but it would take more time.  I have no doubt that China's vaccine research data, which is typified by its inherent trustworthiness, will be acknowledged by the majority of the world's medical establishments.

gork

A politicial tussle has seen Brazil's Bolsonaro cheer when China's vaccines were stymied. Now Brazil reports a very low efficacy rate of barely more than 50%. 

China's vaccines use a disabled virus so should be the most effective vaccines of all. All four proteins should be present to trigger an immune response.

By contrast, western propaganda continues to claim over 90% efficacy for Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, despite both using the mRNA tecunique which only uses the spike protein and both having reported their efficacy rates before the trials were complete, so were false figures. 

wchao37

The video that I just uploaded here shows that Pfizer had cheated in the analysis of its data just as it was mentioned as a possibility in the "mumble jumble" thread, on account of previous incidents of faking data by American drug companies (OxyContin was an opioid drug which was certified to be safe for pain control without significant addiction possibilities, when the drug company knew full well that was not true, and was fined 160 million dollars for the misconduct).

Pfizer said its vaccine had 95% efficacy, but further analyses of its data show that it is only 19% (yes, nineteen percent) and not 95%.

That means many people innoculated with the vaccine will still be susceptible to Covid-19  infection despite the innoculation.

Therefore the worst part about the Pfizer vaccine is that it gives you a false sense of security that you are protected once you receive their vaccination shot.

Our bbs readers at CD have a great advantage over others because it was first determined here in the "Trump's mumble jumble about a Covid-19 vaccine" thread dated May, 2020 that it was not possible to have enough time to develop a vaccine clinically certifiable to be safe to be used by the end of the year, and that Trump's "promise" was merely a political vaccine rushed into the market for political reasons.

That evaluation has now been vindicated.  A huge percentage of Pfizer vaccine recipients in Norway had DIED after getting the vaccine.  A U.S. physician has also died within two days of receiving the Pfizer vaccine because of hematological complications -- his platelet count whose normal value is around 250,000 went down to almost 0, and he first developed petechia (little red dots on his skin) and then died of cerebral hemorrhage.  Platelets are clotting factors in the blood needed for its coagulation.

See this video and judge for yourself:

Re: one in 1000 death's is a huge percentage considering that Norway can say that they're probably the healthiest nation on earth.

Transfer this percentage to a nation like Indonesia and you encounter close to 300,000 fatalities.

   Mind boggling in my opinion...

I'd never advice non Asian's not to use any vaccine. However, I'd strongly advise local folks not to be influenced by western media...

The Middle Kingdom certainly should not cringe from their attacks. 

  However, we should bring the facts to Greater China and international readers and CGTN viewer's. Otherwise, the old saying: tell a lie often enough and it will be taken as the truth.
